Can you trust a big butt and a smile?
In 1990, "Poison," the hit single by Bell Biv DeVoe had the prophetic lyrics "Never trust a big butt and a smile." These words were etched in the minds of hip-hop heads across the globe, and for many they became the catalyst for "tail watching."
The good folks at Taschen have provided the definitive guide for butt connoisseurs with the forthcoming (The) Big Butt Book. This book is sure to make even the most discriminating gentleman ask, can you trust a big butt and a smile? More pics after the jump.
The Big Butt Book explores this perennial fascination with female booty—from small and taut to large and sumptuous—in the fourth installment of Dian Hanson's critically acclaimed body parts series. Over 400 photos from 1900 to the present day, including works by Elmer Batters, Ellen von Unwerth, Jean-Paul Goude, Ralph Gibson, Richard Kern, Jan Saudek, Ed Fox, Terry Richardsonand Sante D'Orazio, of butts ranging from petite Pam Anderson's to sumptuousSerena Williams', are contextualized by interviews with porn icon John (Buttman) Stagliano, filmmaker Tinto Brass, artist Robert Crumb, bootylicious butt queens Buffie The Body, Coco and Brazil's Watermelon Woman, plus Eve Howard and her life-long spanking obsession.
