Interesting (And Kind Of Gross) Things You Didn't Know About Your Butt

Butt. Rear. Tuchus. Derrière. Can. Caboose. Whatever you call it, the posterior is one of the most important parts of the human body. It plays many crucial roles in our daily lives, from allowing us to move around freely to helping us rid our digestive system of waste products. Despite all of its uses, most people don't know the most interesting facts about butts.

To a certain extent, mystery shrouds the butt. It's involved in some admittedly icky bodily functions, a fact that likely prevents a lot of people from fully understanding its usefulness. Simply put, we would be lost without our backsides. They are our constant companions, our allies, and our cushions - not to mention an endless source of humor, pleasure, and pain. And, as this list of facts about butts demonstrates, the rear can be just as fascinating as the human brain.
