      You, too, can have an ass like that. Squats and lunges will get that booty popping before you know it. Or if a squat rack isn’t feasible, booty bands are also really effective. I rely on those when I don’t have access to a rack.
      And then make sure to get your protein for your growing booty. Vanilla or strawberry flavored whey protein in whole milk is fucking delicious. With how good that tastes, there’s no reason you can’t get enough nutrients.

      Hopefully this helps! Everyone deserves a juicy ass.

        Any advice for non-dairy protein? Lactose intolerant, and the people using the equipment after me would very much prefer if I didn’t shit myself 😅

          Whey protein isolate. I am also lactose intolerant and while this is slightly more expensive than the most commonly sold whey protein concentrate it prevents the daily pants shitting that concentrate would cause, so it’s super worth the extra 5-10 bucks.

          Orgain vegan is my preferred protein. I like the simple one that is much harder to find

          I know you have been given answers already, but look for any Vegan protein. If you want protein powder for example, the vegan ones are usually made of pea protein rather than whey, completely eliminating the risk of shitting yourself from the protein.

          I usually buy pea protein from MyProtein online. I personally find whey proteins to be way too sweet. The only issue is that it’s thicker, so I need to use a blender, rather than one of those shaker cups.

          Find a basic flavor like vanilla, and add fruit (usually banana for me.) You can add a non dairy milk of your choice, if you don’t want to use water. Soy milk works well, and has bonus protein.

          Not sure if the whey powder itself has lactose, but most of them can be mixed with water instead of milk. It’s nowhere near as yummy though so maybe replacing with a milk alternative would be better.

          Whey protein is generally the best protein you can get (in terms of amino acid profile).

          There are some good vegan powders but also some real shite ones that seem to have high protein but of low quality. One with a 70% pea protein and 30% brown rice protein blend is about the closest you can get to a whey powder. I’d be skeptical of one’s that don’t provide an amino acid profile table beside the nutrition facts. Good chance they’re inflating the total protein with poor quality sources.

          Also, like someone else said, you can consider a whey protein isolate. If you aren’t avoiding dairy for ethical/diet reasons and just due to lactose intolerance, good chance you can have an isolate without blowing up your bowels.

        No squat rack, Go Rocky IV style. Grab 2 bags of potting soil over each shoulder and squat away. Grab a few gallons of water, bonus grip strength while squatting.

    Bottom line I have a big ass and my wife liked it. Context I’m 6’ 2" and she’s 4’ 11"

    when i was very young, men would wear booty shorts and belly shirts like some women do now; publicly shirtless men was also more common; and, as an adult, i wish i could have appreciated it more than i did at the time.

    i hate that prudery has become so en vogue these days with the young.

        It was 105 today. That trend might come back out of necessity.

        i believe that the cultural shift away from ordinary men letting it hang out publicly happened at a time when air conditioning became less of a luxury item that only the wealthy enough could afford; when awareness that straight men can also be sexualized became common; as well as when this country started to become more conservative politically (ie going from cultural, feminist & sexual liberation movements from late the 60’s going into the 70’s to the reagan & aids-scare of the 80’s leading into big anti-lgbtq & “family values” policies from the federal government in the mid 90’s).

        considering that both presidential candidates are right of center in our current overton window (at least much more so compared to the 70’s); air conditioning increasingly being required by law in many places; straight men generally still being terrified of being perceived as gay; and the gen-z tendency towards merely tolerating sex positivity instead of embracing it like in the 70’s it leads me to believe that it won’t come back for a long time, if ever.

    My dysphoria would never allow me to wear something like that. I can’t stand anything that reminds me that I’m built like a fridge and look like I’m cosplaying a Sasquatch with alopecia.

        I personally don’t think so. It’s more a gender thing than a body looks thing. I’m nonbinary but I haven’t been able to pursue transition for health reasons. So I still look like a cis male. I’m 6’2" tall, my shoulders are wide enough that I legitimately have to walk sideways through some doors to keep from shoulder checking a wall. I’m just large and don’t like being reminded that most everyone that sees me just sees a man.

      Recently, I learned that a (female) friend of mine has what can only be described as a body hair fetish. As in, “you’re not hairy enough for my taste,” level of fetish. You might be surprised.

        While tight shirts and external secondary sex distinctions are mostly not an issue.

          I mean society seems to think so? Frankly also I just typically get uncomfortable with people peeking down at my crotch. I don’t generally wear tight pants for that reason because I’m not looking for that kind of attention.

          It’s just that the focus goes a lot more to nipples. If you wear a tight shirt with external secondaries you better wear a bra or be prepared to get started on or even get shit from people.

      Well, there are men’s ballet leggings and whatever folks wear to your local renaissance festival, but I see your point. Neither really has the fit or look of women’s athletic gear or cozy/comfy stuff.

    There’s a clip somewhere of a gay guy looking direct to camera saying with that basically-clapping-between-words flamboyant energy:

    “Straight men! The women you want to sleep with, want to see your thighs!”

    I can never find it so the quote might not be perfect but it really stuck with me. I joked about it to my SO and she gave one of those moany approval noises meaning like “so true” so I guess the man was right.

    I do think at some point you really can’t call them shorts. Some of the “shorts” men wear are more like wide leg capri pants.
