If there's one thing that every woman has worried about at some time in her life, it’s got to be whether or not her derriere is desirable or not. Now, a psychology professor has come up with a scientific of answering the question by devising a numerical formula that measures the desirability of the derriere.
According to the New York Daily News women will now be able to check whether their posterior qualifies as desirable or not by using Manchester Metropolitan University psychology professor Davis Holmes’ formula.
The formula uses a point-based grading system across six characteristics of overall shape (S), circularity of buttocks (C), resilience or bounce (B), firmness (F), skin texture (T) and vertical ratio/symmetry (V).
In step one of the desirable derriere test; women need to rate the shape of their butt as per the following – a platter (1), a pizza (2), a two-day old balloon (3), a Christmas fruitcake(4) or a bowl of cherries (5). They also need to rate the circularity of their butt, and find out whether their butt is like – a homeplate (1), a football (2), a hacky sack (3), a Frisbee (4) or a volley ball (5).
For bounce, they have to choose between the options – drop’s like a dog’s ears (1), hangs like a hammock (2), springs like a spongecake (4), gets called ‘bungee booty’ (4) or is trampoline taunt (5).
For firmness, women have to choose whether their scores like a bean bag (1), a water balloon (2), a silly putty (3), a piñata (4) or a brick house (5).
Next comes skin texture. They have to determine whether their posterior is as lumpy as crème caramel (1), grits (2), applesauce (3) or rice pudding (4).
And lastly, for symmetry they have to check whether it scores as per the category of – a water droplet (1), drizzle (2), april shower (3) or a deluge (4).
Once these six characteristics have been determined, all that needs to be done as part of step 2 is apply the formula: ((S+C)*(B+F)/T)–V. In other words, women need to add the shape(S) and circularity(C) score. Then add the bounce (B) and Fitness (F) score. Multiply these two figures then divide by Texture (T) score, and finally subtract the Symmetry score.
If your butt clocks up a rate of 80 – it’s perfect. If it’s a 60, then please feel free to show off that swimsuit. If you score a 40, then it time to exercise. At 20, you need to hide your butt, and at under 20, as per the formula, women need to stay put in the house.
