There's no doubt that butts are having a moment. A nice behind is officially the body part of the generation. In the UK, men and women are taking it to the next level by starting a 'mooning movement,' which is now spreading across the world.
Instagram account Cheeky Exploits (@cheekyexploits) is posting photos of different butts belonging to people of different shapes and sizes and contexts.
Whilst it's kinda creepy to have so many photos of very white butts in the same place, the movement is somewhat commendable. Cheeky Exploits has been encouraging all kinds of people to upload snaps of their bare tushes in order to crush society's remaining prudishness.
We can't say that someone taking a less-than-artistic photo of their mate's arse in a forest is an especially enlightened act. But we get by any campaign quashing uptight attitudes, which is what Cheeky Exploits is achieving with its 85.7k followers.
While we're aware that any sort of movement that encourages nudity may fall prey to objectification and sexualisation of naked bodies, Cheeky Exploits seems to prioritize freedom and self-empowerment via liberation.
Just don't go flashing any strangers in public, though. Especially not in a forceful manner or a way that is abusive. We're not about that – only flash the willing, okay? 😘
