Someone sent me this attachment that opened to reveal a series of photographs of a Black (as in African) woman with the most astounding butt I have ever seen – one that is even more protuberant than Serena Williams’ is – and that’s saying something, right?

A nice ‘ass’ (or arse, butt, bum, buttocks, bottom, posterior or whatever your preference in terminology may be) is usually an integral part of the whole that makes a body attractive, and in most cases, desirable. From the miniscule research I have conducted on this subject, mostly consisting of friends’ views, it appears that the protuberant ass is the one desired more than any of the other shapes, and what’s more, most of them declared that the more protuberant the ass, the better!

Steatopygia is a condition that is caused by an accumulation of fat around the ass, which, is said to be a genetic characteristic originating with the Khoisan tribals of the sub-Saharan regions of Africa. The reason for the accumulation of the fat would most probably have to do with the storage of energy for these hunter-gatherer tribes to survive during the extended periods that they had to endure without a regular source of food. Interestingly, we are told that a study of their Y-chromosomes reveal that they belong to the oldest human lineage which could well have diverged from the evolutionary tree of over 100,000 years ago. This characteristic has now been genetically transferred to other tribes such as the Bantu, the Bushmen of the Kalahari, the Pygmies of Central Africa and possibly others. However, it must be very clear to those who admire nice asses, that the genes have spread all over and now innumerable descendents of Africans all over the world have been blessed or cursed (depending on how extreme the condition is) with the asses they have that reflect those steatopygic origins.

Here’s a bit of what ‘Wikipedia’ has to say about it: ‘Steatopygia would seem to have been a characteristic of a population which once extended from the Gulf of Aden to the Cape of Good Hope, of which stock Khoisan and Pygmies are remnants. While the Khoisan afford the most noticeable examples of its development, it is by no means rare in other parts of Africa, and occurs even more frequently among Basters of the male sex than among Khoikhoi women. It is also observed among females of Andamanese Negritos.’

There is another very interesting condition that usually accompanies Steatopygia and that is (dig this!), ‘…it is often accompanied by the formation known as elongated labia (labia minora that may extend as much as 4 inches outside the vulva)’. Four inches – shit! Is this a bonus or what? I know, ‘different strokes for different folks’, so maybe some of us are put off by four-inch labia, but then some of us are even more turned on by this phenomenon (again, I stress, research courtesy of friends!).

The steatopygic ass is not confined to females, and although we are told by the scholars that it is more prevalent in females than in males, there are plenty of males with nice asses, as most admirers will agree. Of course the labia is confined to the female gender and one wonders if the male’s steatopygic ass is also ‘often accompanied by’ an elongated male organ that replaces the female’s elongated labia? Don’t know if the research has been done on this aspect, but it sure will be an interesting bit of information, don’t you think?

I know Java’s had extensive experience with Black Americans during his sojourn in the States, so when I asked for his view this is what I got:

Sheeet maan, dose Black butts be da very best, an dat’s not all dere be to it eider – yo be talkin bout all dat odder addishunal sheet, right? Weelll maaan, I can’t tell yo ass bout som of dose speriences front of dis audience, but nice butts aint all dere be to it – dere’s plenty more – dose butts be jus da ‘com on’ signal.

I’m not exactly sure of what he meant by that, but rest assured the stories will be worth hearing, so let me work on it and then maybe….?
