The perfect, most desirable size for the male butt

What constitutes a nice butt on a man? Many gay guys have their own thoughts on the matter, but until now, there has been little scientific research on the topic.

However, it’s something plastic surgeons want to know about. More and more men have been seeking backside enhancements, so it helps to have something to aim for. It’s also of interest to those considering gender-affirming surgical procedures.

A new study has appeared in the latest issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Just over 2,000 people took part (including 61% men). 75% identified as heterosexual, with 25% identifying as gay, bisexual or queer.

They were shown digitally altered images of a male derrière from three different angles (from the side, from the back, and at a slightly oblique angle to the camera) then asked to indicate what they found “most attractive.”

You can check images out in the original study.

“While previous studies have evaluated the features of attractive female buttocks, no one has really studied the aesthetic of the ideal male buttocks,” according to lead author Dr. Ashit Patel, of Duke University, Durham, NC, in a press statement.

“Our results demonstrate that there is a preferred male gluteal aesthetic,” says Patel. “The findings suggest that a moderately enhanced, well-proportioned appearance is most desirable.”

To give the more specific results, “The preferred lateral ratio in the anteroposterior dimension was 1.18.
