Well, it's not just humans. There are those monkeys with red bums, which are meant to attract mates.
I don't really get the butt thing though. Though bum cleavage seems to be very in these days. Personally I don't care what someone's bum looks like, as long as it's there. I'm not big on the non-existant bum look.
My name is Pixie69, and the thought of a nice bum turns me on. Not a bubble butt, but a butt. A nice tight bum. Those are my qualifications for a good one. Simple, see? On guys...I don't know, sometimes you just know that their bum is of a superior quality....Yes, I consider myself to be a bum conesouir, which is why I can say "superior quality" about bums without turning red
Sorry, I'm in a goofy mood.

"Just say no" fights teen pregnancy the way "hey, cheer up" fights manic depression.
according to some anthropoglogists, monkeys in estrus will display their perineal areas, which are swollen and red due to their arousal. the male monkeys see this and they get turned on. as a consequence, the monkeys mate.
well, since Homo sapiens walk upright, they cannot display their perineal area (area between vagina and anus) as easily. So they grew butts. Good butt muscles also make it possible to sit and walk.
Hooray for butts!

See, I'm all for the arse. Nicely shapen and round, firm yet pliable, what we call a grabbable arse. You see, to me the arse is a very erogenous zone, so in getting pleasure from having mine fondled, I am thusly attracted to others. It also has to do with... well, their similatiyies to breasts... but that's just me.

Personally, I just don't find butts sexy. Even a really nice butt- they just don't do anything for me. Like in the "naked guys" post where I said that the sight of naked men doesn't appeal to me, although I might be impressed by a fit, toned body. I might be impressed by a tight butt, and I might say "hey, great a**," but a firm butt doesn't turn me on. Hmmm... Just personal tastes I guess. I suppose that many people find butts sexy, but I don't get it. Although I've been known to check out a few arses in my day.

I've never really thought much about this before. All humans have butts, all humans are different, ergo the butts of the world exist in various sizes and colors and display some variations in shape. To me, a butt is just another element of a person that adds to his or her uniqueness.
Oddly enough, I find that a few people I've met judge some individuals by their bottoms. "What a fat/bubbly/tight, etc. [insert slang term for butt] he/she has," they might say. It's certainly not a crime to notice the physical attributes of others, but I can't see why a person would choose to be a walking commentary on butts. And of course it is not right to disparage any part of another person's body. So I'd advise those few butt-surveyors in question to keep in mind that a butt is just a butt, just as feet are feet. Even though sexual significance could be invested in both of those body parts, they are mostly just...parts of one's body.

I like butts. Not just on a guy, but on a girl too. I like them round, I like them tight. I just like them. But please, keep them covered. I can't stand looking at bare butts, except baby butts. Those are the cutest
------------------ Every time someone says, 'I don't believe in fairies,' one falls over dead.
I fail to see the attraction also. Like I like how a guy's butt feels in your hands during sex..but other than that I wouldn't sit there and stare at them. I think that aside from sitting down, they're meant to be felt, not stared at. It feels good when someone (with your permission of course) is feeling yours.

butt...butt...hmm...butt. well, some butts are (to me) better than others. ryan doesn't really have much of a butt. but(hehe) it's there. i guess it has to be. it doesn't stick out or anything. hmm... people tend to like my butt. they tell me about it. i think since i've gained a bit of weight lately that it's sticking out a bit more. almost "ghetto" if you will... i don't know. i don't mind it. it's quite helpful when it comes time to sit. sitting might get painful if it weren't for them two pillows known by all as "butt-cheeks". my friend josh has a butt that my friend and i seem to favor. we've also noticed that dockers pants tend to make butts look good. but that's just our opinion... hehe ( | )<---butt? all in all, i guess it just depends on my mood if i'm a "butt girl" or not... hmm

I also just don't understand. I mean, I can see that there is an attraction, just like the attraction to breasts, eyes, hair, etc... But what makes a nice butt? I've been told I have a nice butt, but to me, it looks like any ol' booty. It's good for sittin', though.
I'm not really interested in booty... unless it's pirate booty. Yarrrr... or something.
i always thought i had a ghetto booty, but then i was informed that what i have is really called a "bubble butt."
apparently, a ghetto booty refers to having a big butt and big thighs as well, where as a bubble butt is more, well, bubbly. like just the butt sticks out.
interesting stuff. lol
i love guys' clothed butts, but i couldn't care less about naked butts. and guy thighs are sorta ickym if you ask me. lol
