The cold, hard truth about what dudes think of a little junk in the trunk. As a woman who definitely does not have "back," this always sort of made me feel left out. While it's been over 20 years since Sir Mix-A-Lot sang those immortal lyrics, the discussion of big butts is still on the table, especially thanks to Kim Kardashian , who, in her own right, has pretty much cornered the market. Or is it just a rumor that got started and everyone followed suit?

Sexualization of the buttocks , especially of the female gender, has occurred throughout history. Sexologist Alfred Kinsey suggested that the buttocks is the primary sexual presentation site in primates. Some anthropologists and sociobiologists believe that breast fetishism derives from the breasts' similarity to buttocks, but instead provide sexual attraction from the front of the body. In humans, females generally have more round and voluptuous buttocks, caused by estrogen that encourages the body to store fat in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. Testosterone discourages fat storage in these areas.
Scientists from the University of Oxford have discovered that women with larger than average butts are not only increasingly intelligent but also very resistant to chronic illnesses. According to ABC News, the results found that women with bigger backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. As is turns out, big butts are now proven to do more than just please the eye. And having a big butt requires an excess of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to catalyze brain development.
