- (usually Template loop detected: Template:context 1) Each of the two large fleshy halves of the posterior part of the body between the base of the back and the top of the legs.
The plural form is usually used in the singular sense; a single person's posterior, often called butt. It is rarer to refer to only a single buttock, which is then usually specified as left or right.
