I’ll be honest, I am writing this post during the commercial breaks in the men’s figure skating long program, one of my favorite Olympic events. I am a horrible figure skater, but that does not keep me from adoring the sport and the sequined outfits that go with it. And then of course there are the booties.
I have always liked the male backside. It’s the second thing I look at on a man. (The first is the face, get your mind out of the gutter!) But during the Olympics I have a whole new appreciation. There are some mighty magnificent rear ends in these games. And some of the largest of these splendid ends were in pairs skating. It was almost distracting. Men’s pairs skaters have hams strapped to the top of their thighs (evidence below). Speed skaters pack in the back too, while with solo figure skaters, it’s a guessing game.
Another reason I really like a man’s tail end is because it seems almost outlawed. Us women are supposed to like biceps and chivalry. Dependable men who will woo us and weather the storm by our sides. But I need more than that. I need something to distract me between commercial breaks. My own boyfriend, sporter of a nice butt, decided that sleep is more important than figure skating and abandoned me this evening. So it’s just me and the men of team USA.
When the Olympics end, and the spandex is gone, I think I will survive. There are other things to appreciate about men like brains and personality and blah blah blah. But until then, bring on the aerodynamic, skintight, booty exposing red white and blue!
PS – This entry was very fun to write as I just spent the last 15 minutes Googling “best men’s asses” for images. There are some good ones out there – it was terribly hard to decide!
