There’s A Scientific Reason Why Men Are So Attracted To Big Butts

March 08, 2015 2 min read

Women with big butts have always been attractive, but a new study has found that it’s not the actual rear end that men find most appealing about this body type. Psychology researchers at Turkey’s Bilkent University presented pictures of women’s silhouettes with different degrees of spine curvature to 300 men, Daily Mail reports. These men were then told to pick which of the women they found most and least attractive. The majority of them were partial to a spine curvature of 45.5 degrees, seemingly because it made the woman’s butt look bigger. Researchers also showed the men three pictures of women with butts that were equally large but for different reasons: spine curvature, excess fat and excess muscle. The woman with the curved spine was deemed most attractive. This led researchers to conclude that it is the angle of the spine and not the size of the rear end alone that has more of an impact on what men are drawn to. Dr. David Lewis said,
Men who think they like big bottoms may actually be more into spines. Men may be directing their attention to the butt and obtaining information about women’s spines, even if they are unaware that that is what their minds are doing.
Men have found spines of this specific degree of curvature attractive for centuries due to the effect it had on a woman’s ability to find food and bear children. Dr. Lewis said that a 45-degree curve allowed women to search for food later into their pregnancies and continue to have children without injuring their backs. Women without these curved spines would barely be able to move while pregnant, he added, as a spine without such a curve increases the pressure on their hips by almost 800 percent. The evolutionary benefits of women with these bodies therefore became engrained into the minds of men. So it seems that the primary reason men are always on the lookout for big butts is that they are subconsciously associated with extensive procreation and increased activity during pregnancy. The male mind, in other words, is programmed to believe that a woman with a big butt and curved spine is the ideal partner. This study was originally published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior. h/t: Elite Daily

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
