If you are an ass man, then you must be having the decade of your life. I mean, Nicki Minaj and the Kardashians exists, yoga pants are now a thing, and women everywhere are squatting their way to shapelier backsides. No wonder the obsession is on the rise.
However, you should know that your obsession with the female butts is nothing new. In fact, According to David Buss, Ph.D., a psychology professor at the University of Texas at Austin, it’s primal.
He went on to say, “You’re drawn to a woman’s butt for the same reason you’re attracted to her breasts, hips, and a little waist: because those traits would have been indicators of fertility to your ancient ancestors.”
“Man evolved to seek out women who could reproduce, Buss says. If a woman has a full ass, that’s a signal to your primitive brain that she’s probably carrying enough fat to become pregnant, he says. And if her bum is perky and round, that means she’s probably young—which, in caveman days, would make her a good candidate to carry your cave child. “
A sex expert and author of Mastering Multiple Position Sex weighed in on the matter. “Men like big butt because It’s a taboo,” he said. “We’re not allowed to go there. And when it comes to sex, there’s something animalistic and dirty about mounting from the rear.”
