How Do You Refer to Your Rear?

It seems that women have a love/hate relationship with their butts. Either you want a smaller rear or a more shapely tush, and if you love your booty the way it is, I say shake your money maker. Regardless of your emotional relationship to your derriere, trainers and fitness class teachers use a wide variety of terms for "butt" — it's such a crass term with a schoolyard feel to it, and only slightly better than the formal "buttocks." When it comes to talking about your backside, tell me . . .

Oh, I should add, though, I use "booty" when talking to my 2 year old. And yesterday she told me to get my "booty in the car!" :O

Depending on who I'm talking to, it's either butt or ass. I never use the other ones. Even when exercising, I don't say "glutes". It's more likely I'd say "Oh my God! My ass is killing me!"

Ass or butt. Nothing else. Maybe glute if I'm talking to my coach. Maybe.
