So apparently…it is all about that base. Latinas are no strangers to the big butt. In fact, most women like to have a little extra in the rear and even better if it’s perky and round. Now there’s scientific proof that men are particularly attracted to women with a back that curves exactly 45.5 degrees above the top of her bottom. The study was published in the journal of Evolution and Human Behaviour.
Scientists found that the extra volume around the butt could enhance the curvature of a woman’s spine. This vertebral wedging is seen more attractive than extra buttock mass. About 300 men were shown the silhouettes of women and most men were attracted to those with a spine curve of 45.5 degrees.
Latinas like Jennifer Lopez have been motivating women to do the extra squats for a great butt–BUT besides being more attractive to the opposite sex, having a big butt has its benefits.
Fat around your thighs and butt is different that the one around your stomach and can actually protect you from diseases like heart disease and diabetes. The fat around your thighs and butt is different, you have fatty acids stored here that protect you against these diseases. Women with bigger butts tend to have lower cholesterol level and produce more sugar-metabolizing hormones.
Stomach fat is considered more metabolically active than lower body fat. As your body breaks down this fat, it releases cytokines, which are linked to cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and diabetes. Plus the fat that you have near your stomach pushes against your organs, which makes your organs work faster, debilitating your health. You don’t have any vital organs in the lower region of your body.
