This blog celebrates the supreme beauty of the female form, with a special emphasis upon the derrière, and will often depict nudity. While the female derrière receives special emphasis, you will also see the male gender, straight, lesbian and gay couples, threesomes, etc.
I also occasionally post topical material, nature and science, food and beverage, art and music, animals, travel, history, culture, and any other subjects that strike my fancy at the moment. If any of those posts are not to your taste, please don't complain. Instead, kindly exercise your freedom to look elsewhere.
I do not claim ownership of these images. I have collected them from the Internet as well as re-blogging from other tumblrs, and I presume that all are within the public domain. If I have inadvertently posted an image to which you hold the rights, kindly advise me and I will remove or credit the image, whichever you prefer. IMPORTANT: Complain to me, NOT to tumblr, so that I will know which images are copyrighted and therefore will never again inadvertently re-post.
Submissions are most welcome, and are often published, especially original content. I can only publish submissions that come from another tumblr account, but I will keep the account's identity anonymous if requested. Submissions from outside tumblr are always welcome, but they are not eligible for posting on my blog.
Thank you for your interest, and I hope you will enjoy what you are about to see.

Report: More than 4.3M Syrian children need humanitarian aid
Syria’s civil war has left the country’s health system so severely crippled that some patients are “opting to be knocked out with metal bars for lack of anesthesia,” according to a new report by international charity Save the Children.
The report, A Devastating Toll, details the impact of three years of war on the health of the country’s children and adds that more than 10,000 children have been lost as a direct result of the violence.
"We received a little girl with critical injuries we could do nothing but wait for her to die because we didn’t have the equipment or the medicines. Till now I can’t remove her face from my mind," said one health worker identified in the report only as Anas.

San Cristobal residents fear for safety as Venezuelan troops move in
SAN CRISTOBAL, Venezuela — Venezuela’s National Guard launched a late night assault Sunday and into Monday in the western city of San Cristóbal, considered the birthplace of recent protests against the country’s government.
Armored cars smashed barricades as guardsmen launched volleys of teargas against protesters in a northern section of the city, considered a middle- to upper-middle-class neighborhood.
The area is known as a hotbed of political opposition to President Nicolas Maduro, and its residents have sparred with government forces for more than a month, hurling stones and Molotov cocktails at security forces.

Ukraine’s industrial East could be next battleground for country’s future
DONETSK, Ukraine — The woman who stood in the cold Saturday afternoon, shouting for the release of a pro-Russian self-appointed “people’s governor” named Pavel Gubarev, would only give her first name: Irena.
She stood in a square in Donetsk, the unofficial capital of Donbass, the coal mining region of eastern Ukraine where on Monday a group of pro-Russia supporters stormed the regional government headquarters, hoisted the Russian flag and demanded that Donetsk separate from Ukraine. Gubarev, the founder of the People’s Militia of Donbass, declared himself the new governor.
He was arrested by the Ukrainian government on Thursday night and charged with trying to damage “the territorial integrity and independence of the state.” Hence the gathering on Saturday, a rather underwhelming 800 or so, considering the conventional wisdom that has eastern Ukraine solidly in favor of Russian intervention.
