perfect ass

By David Ponce

Ladies, please forgive me. No offense is meant, but there are those among us who will appreciate the mathematical beauty that follows.

Psychology lecturer David Holmes of Manchester Metropolitan University in England delights us geeks with the following mathematical formula for the perfect ass: (S+C) x (B+F)/T = V.

S is the overall shape or droopiness of the bottom, C represents how spherical the buttocks are, B measures muscular wobble or bounce, while F records the firmness. V is the hip to waist ratio, or symmetry of the bottom, and T measures the skin texture and presence of cellulite.

Of course, we can debate the equation’s soundness till we turn black and blue (and maybe we should), but it’s nice to know what psychologists have been up to of late.
