Big bottom girls are women with a big bottom, booty, butt, batty, bum, bum-bum, bumsie, behind, ass or whatever they call it in your part of the world. By a big bottom I mean one that is round and sticks out and often comes with a narrow waist and thick thighs – not one that is just another piece of fat hanging off of an otherwise fat woman.
Big bottom women are sung of in calypso, soca, hip hop and even on occasion in rock (but not seriously). They are common in hip hop videos, even in America where thinness in women is so worshipped.
Some women with a big bottom: Deelishis, Angel Lola Luv, Ki Toy Johnson, Lizz Robbins, Kenya Moore, Liris Crosse, Serena Williams, Jennifer Lopez, Bria Myles, Vida Guerra, Toccara Jones, Melyssa Ford, Omotola, Buffie the Body, Selena, Buckeey and Kim Kardashian.
Not all of these bottoms are natural. I think it is safe to say that Angel’s is not: look at her legs. Kim Kardashian is another doubtful case. A doctor can make your bottom bigger, just like he can your breasts. In the Ivory Coast in the markets you can buy stuff for $2 (8 metric pennies) that is supposed to do the trick too.
I have a particular weakness for women with a big bottom and a pretty face. I am hardly alone. Most black men in North America, the West Indies and across Africa seem to be the same way. It is a huge part of the appeal of thick women.
But most white men in Europe and North America do not seem to be like this. Some do like big bottom women – at least two have written songs about them. But for most a big bottom either does nothing for them (like Ben Westhoff who once interviewed Buffie the Body) or even turns them off – as fat and unsightly! As if they are wired differently or something.
Paris Hilton put it this way when asked if she wanted a big bottom like her friend Kim Kardashian: “…it’s gross! It reminds me of cottage cheese inside a big trash bag.” You hear that sort of thing mainly from white women, but some white men feel that way too.
To me it is just the opposite. A nice, big, round bottom makes a woman more desirable, just like big breasts do. In fact, a big bottom turns me on more than big breasts. I love the way it looks and feels, especially along with thick thighs.
Even though it goes against current white American ideas of health and beauty, there are sound reasons for men to like that sort of thing in women: those are the two places – the bottom and the thighs – where a woman’s body stores the fat it will need to have babies. It is a sign they are fertile.
Part of what drives white ideas of beauty is the demand of fashion designers for flat bodies. So, in a way, I am glad the fashion industry is so white and leaves black beauty so untouched – and therefore still beautiful.
