Weird Facts About Your Butt

Check out these awesome, sometimes hilarious and certainly intriguing facts about bums. Enjoy!

Big, small, round or not-so-round – We all have butts, of course, but they're still a little bit mysterious. Butts come in all shapes sizes and are totally functional for several reasons, as well as being a highly sexualized part of both a woman's and man's body. Our butts are actually a part of the biggest muscle group of our bodies . Check out these awesome, sometimes hilarious and certainly intriguing facts about bums. Enjoy!

#Women with bigger behinds are said to be smarter
A study by the University of Pittsburgh and the University of California found that women with bigger bootays are on average, smarter than women with smaller butts. Apparently this is because the hips and bum store essential omega-3 fatty acids which promote brain growth!

#It's healthy to have a big butt
According to research by the University Of Oxford, carrying some junk in your trunk can actually save you from some serious health issues. Bigger butts can lower the risks of diabetes and heart disease, yes, even though they can be linked to obesity. Fat that settles in the lower part of your body lowers metabolic and cardiovascular risks than abdominal fat. Believe it or not but pear shaped bodies are thought to be the healthiest.

#Your Ass Is One Of The Most Powerful Areas Of Your Body

Your glutes are your body’s most largest and powerful muscle groups. They’re also responsible for your major movements like standing up, sitting down, crouching, walking and climbing. Who knew all that was controlled by your butt?!

#The scent of farts could be good for your health

Yup, a 2014 study suggested that there are possible health benefits of inhaling hydrogen sulfide. While the smell of hydrogen sulfate is dangerous in large doses, smaller whiffs of this scent might provide therapeutic health benefits to people who have conditions like stroke, heart failure, dementia or diabetes.

#Your ass is super absorptive

Gross but true. Your butt is so good at absorbing stuff that if you ever decide to drink alcohol with your bum instead of your mouth - also known rather charmingly as "butt chugging" - it's actually pretty dangerous. Your booze needs to be filtered through your liver and kidneys first because, unlike your organs forcing you to be sick through your mouth, your butt doesn't have the ability to tell you when you've had too much to drink. Which means it's entirely possible to die from "butt chugging".

#Your Butthole Is Hairy For A Reason

Ugh, sorry to get graphic. Supposedly the hair that grows around the butthole actually helps to muffle your farts, so if you get rid of it completely, you are going to have a harder time letting them slip out quietly. 

#There Are 50 Slang Words For Butt

In the English language alone, there are at least 50 different slang words for the butt, and surely you can come up with a few of them real quickly: ass, junk, booty, Badunkadonk, caboose, fatty, pooper, tush, seat, can, money maker. Many of these terms, of course, have been pushed forward by our cultural obsession with butts and butt references in songs, TV, movies, etc. Nothing is more "in" right now than a butt, but of course this isn't the first time -- we tend to cycle through body parts in their popularity.
