From anal sex to anal bleaching, it seems we can’t stop hearing stuff that has to do with our glutes (butts) but we’ve come to tell you more.
Here are some facts you probably didn’t know about your butt.
1. Twerking doesn’t involve your glutes
None of your glutes are involved at all. It’s mostly your erectors (muscles that strengthen and rotate the back) that are doing all the work while the glutes stay relaxed so they can bounce, jiggle and all the other wonderful things it entails. Your glutes are literally just there for the ride and glory.
2. Most straight men notice the butt last
Yup. So don’t go beating yourself us if your butt is small. A study showed that men notice a woman’s eyes, smile, breasts, hair, weight, and style before they notice her butt. The only other traits that came after the butt were height and skin.
3. Bigger butt= smarter person
Sigh… we in the small booties movement are really not going to hear the end of this right? Anyways, apparently, if you have big ‘botos’, you have significant amounts of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to boost brain function, memory, and cognitive abilities. Research also shows that children born to women with wide hips are more intelligent compared to those conceived by thinner and less curvy mothers.
4. There is a relationship between big ‘botos’ and long life
Having fat below the waist serves as a barrier against heart disease, diabetes and other conditions linked to obesity. If the fat’s stored around the butt and hips, then it’s safer to keep from travelling throughout the body and wreaking havoc.
5. There really isn’t any reason for butt hair
Not the hair on your botos oo… the one inside… lol.. yeah that one. Theories have been put across about why they are around and what they do. One states that it may simply exist because there’s “no significant evolutionary pressure against it”.
Another also says that our early human ancestors used their personal smell to help them with everything from broadcasting territorial rights to attracting mates. Butt hair was probably simply another way our ancestors enhanced their smell profiles.
The last theory too says that skin rubbing on the skin causes friction which can lead to irritation, rashes, and even infection so the hairs may act as a bit of a protective layer. Butt hair could act as a natural anti-chafing cream.
Lol… which of these did you genuinely not know about?
