Why Do Men Prefer Big Butts? Pro and Cons of a Big Butt

Butt is nothing less than art… Let’s have a look at Sir Mix-a-lot views on big butts to get a better understanding of the male species perspective here…

“I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, want to pull up tough
'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans, she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh, baby, I want to get wit'cha”
Sir Mix-a-Lot

Why Men Prefer Big Butts

At some auspicious point in every woman’s life, they hear a man being asked if he’s a boob guy or more of a butt man. Of course, this particular question makes women feel very much like complex beings and not a living breathing pair of tits and set of butt cheeks; nonetheless, it’s a well-known fact that me, like butts and the bigger the better and if you really ask yourself, who wouldn’t. Butts are fun and with big butts, there’s just more to love – except this logic cannot be applied to plus-sized women. Nah! Men like big butts that come with size zero waists, flat bellies and a sexy clavicle. I’m sorry that’s just the rules babe. “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hun!”.

For real though, there’s a lot to love about a nice shapely big old booty but for any girl who has got one and for those who really want one – big butts can be a sensitive topic and almost every woman out there can tell you about the struggles of arching their tailbone to make that booty pop for that perfect selfie. To all the butt men out there, it really ain’t easy being female!

Buttocks, Thighs, Feet - Which is a Girl's Favorite

Big Butts are great, but now thanks to celebrities of the likes of Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian, thick thighs are considered sexy as well, with the Latina bod or slim thick being the preferred body type of the time. It’s hard to say what feature women like best because women usually want everything on point. Between feet, thighs, and butts though – most women care more about the ass than the others. Women with feet they think aren’t pretty have got options to hide them when they aren’t at their best and that thigh-gap fad makes skinny thighs acceptable too. However, every woman wants some curvature at the rear and when asked around, many women say they feel sexy and great about themselves when their ass looks good.

Pros and Cons of a Big Butt


Everyone wants a big butt and there are many reasons why that’s true. After all, big butts are great for many reasons.

1. It is so good to look at!

is that perfect sensual accessory to any outfit. Men are visual creatures so no surprise that they like the view big butts offer, but there’s even an argument to be made on humans generally liking big, soft and round objects and butts fit pretty well in that category. You can bet your top dollar that a girl has a great time checking her own ass out and probably flaunts it to herself way more than men.

Be it a nice little mirror selfie, or that clingy dress, a big butt will be the cherry on top of a good outfit day – and don’t we all know it because nothing makes a girl feel sexier and more confident than really having that sexy hump hold up her jeans. 

2. It makes you feel sexy

Actual research shows that a small waist to hip ratio is telling of fertility levels and according to evolutionary theory, men are into big butts because it’s good for the survival of the species as a whole. Who knew science would back this up? And then having a nice perky butt is also a sign that the owner of said butt, clearly cares about her body and exercises to keep it looking its best. And good health and fitness are just universally attractive traits! Feeling attractive is a great confidence booster and ladies enjoy the right kind of attention. So if wanting a big booty gets me to exercise and live healthier, I ain’t out here complaining!

3. It protects you

Girls with big booties have a nice little cushion to sit on, unlike the uncomfortable seat that a flat booty provides. So much so that big butts can protect your lower back! It even protects your hamstrings – muscles that are particularly easy to get pulled! Big butts help them do their job while you exercise or do physical work. Even diabetes type 2 risk and bad cholesterol levels drop with smaller waist-to-hip ratios! Big butts have also been linked to good posture which makes you look good and is also good for your back! Girls with small booties got to curve that tailbone pushing their bellies out but a fat booty will add that curvy contour without any such labor! Who knew your big ass booty was also your guardian angel!


Despite, everyone’s obsession with the big booty, the owners of these booties will often have a hard time because of their voluptuous rears! It ain’t easy being big, that’s just the facts!

4. Bad attention

Catcalling is another thing that girls with big butts suffer from more than girls with tiny booties – although let’s be honest all women get harassed on the street. Having said that, if a lady with a big rear just so much as tries to walk down a street, the dogs come howling out. And if you’re a girl you know what kind of attention isn’t flattering at all.

5. Ruins outfits

Sometimes, a big butt can really destroy an aesthetic. Big booties make it extra hard, to find jeans that fit like a glove – jeans that will snuggly hold your butt, are going to be too loose at the waist, etc. etc. Wearing shorts is definitely Russian roulette – will you look cute and girly or will your butt cheeks be hanging out for the whole wide world to see! Also, every girl with big booty and pair of thick thighs knows how many jeans they’ve lost to that thigh friction or even by ripping apart at the seams. You know what I’m talking about – a perfect, expensive pair of jeans that finally fit you right and they’ll get tears on the inner side of your thighs cause of that rubbing against each other. A real ass tragedy! And then, of course, there are outfits where you want to accentuate other parts of your body but – BAAM- your big booty steals the spotlight!

6. Navigating tight spaces

You ever tried to shift places on a bus or get to your seat in an auditorium while having a big butt? Let’s just say, it isn’t easy. Big booties need a passport of their own because there’s no telling where they’re going! Aisle seats for the win if you don’t want to shove that junk into ten stranger’s faces! It’s even worse when you’re slim thick because people will not assume you take up as much space as you actually do, cause of that big butt!
