Man, I love those dimples. But, here at the outset, let's make this a tramp-stamp-free lower back day. That's only fair. Nothing is a bigger turn-off than a celtic/tribal nest over some hot guy's ass.

You guys are trying to get me fired, aren't you?

I think those are the original "ass hats".

Posted by trufe | September 26, 2008 11:03 AM

Don't know what they're called, but I like 'em. Also, I agree with Dom. Ass tattoos are rather silly.

Actually let me clarify. When I say ass tattoos are silly, I'm speaking strictly for myself, not Dom.

Posted by mjanet | September 26, 2008 11:08 AM

they are known as "impossible" or "non-existant." Because no one is in that good shape.

Also, without tramp stamps, how do you know where to shoot your load?

#6 for the dont need to be in killer shape to have those dimples..they are genetic. I've had them since childhood. As a straight guy i probably wouldn't have noticed them, as a young gay guy...i get compliments on them all the time. They are there regardless of if you go to the gym or not, they just stand out more

They are called 'dippies'.

how about we just not do this at all today?

The dimple are casued by the concavity of the sacral superior articular processes. These are indeed superior.

Medical student to the rescue! I think you'll like this.

Quothe wikipedia...

The dimples of Venus (also known as booty dimples, back dimples, or butt dimples) are sagittally symmetrical indentations sometimes visible on the human lower back, just superior to the gluteal cleft. They are directly superficial to the two sacroiliac joints, the sites where the sacrum attaches to the ilium of the pelvis.

The term "dimples of Venus," while informal, is a historically accepted name within the medical profession for the superficial topography of the sacroiliac joints. The Latin name is fossae lumbales laterales ("lateral lumbar indentations"). These indentations are created by a short ligament stretching between the posterior superior iliac spine and the skin.[1]

Dimples of Venus are often considered a sexually desirable feature in both men and women.

Whose bum?

Posted by Soo | September 26, 2008 11:40 AM

i've always referred to them simply as ass-dimples.

Posted by thewholezoo | September 26, 2008 11:51 AM

I can picture a bunch of readers looking at themselves in the mirror later to see if they have them, and if so, how pronounced. haha

I also enjoy that fat people can't have these

There is a big black dildo on the bed!

Posted by hmmm | September 26, 2008 12:09 PM

Also, what do you call the little bit of hair that some guys have there? I've always called it a butt tuft.

Posted by mattymatt | September 26, 2008 12:31 PM

They're called oh my god.

Posted by Me | September 26, 2008 12:35 PM

"Dimples of Venus"

I totally love this. I think this term should be widely disseminated. Awesome.

Thanks M2

I absolutely love it that someone thought that shadow was a big black dildo. LOVE IT.

Booty dimples - I got 'em.

Posted by Original Monique | September 26, 2008 2:52 PM

OMG. Could this be every day's body part?

Oh, no, wait. . . I want that groove just anterior to the iliac crest. . . that hip groove, the one that begs for tongue attention. . .

Posted by violet_dagrinder | September 26, 2008 3:34 PM

They are called "bumples," for god's sake!

Posted by Eliot | September 26, 2008 7:39 PM

I often refer to back dimples as "God's thumbprints."

I didn't see dimples. All I saw were nasty hair-induced butt pimples.

@2 for the win.
