Will you do me a favor?
Put your hand on the small of your back. Best if you can worm your hand through whatever late-October clothes you’re wearing to reach actual naked skin.
Note the temperature of your own flesh against your hand.
Now slide your hand down until you’re about halfway down your butt.
Is THAT flesh a different temperature? Just give me a one-word comment to my one-question survey – say “warmer” or “cooler” or “same temp.”
I’m interested because I’ve discovered that while most of my amply-fleshed body is warm, there’s a strip across my tail, from about side seam to side seam (if bodies had side seams) from below the waist to almost exactly where the chair hits my butt that is noticeably cooler than the rest of my flesh.
Now, who do you ask if that’s normal? Who else? Gwynn, the most experienced, most knowledgeable therapeutic masseuse at Body Dynamics in Falls Church, VA. (Who else can you honestly ask to judge the variation in temperature from your ass to your elbow?)
Gwynn said “I’m sure it’s just a factor of how you were sitting.”
I shook my head firmly. “It’s not. I’ve checked.”
She left so I could strip down and slip naked under the sheet. I know this question interested her for two reasons: First, when she came back into the room, she went straight for my butt. “You’re RIGHT! It’s much cooler!”
Second, she then said “Mine is, too!”
So I know that wherever she goes while clients are changing, she was back there groping her own flesh.
We don’t know if it’s normal or unusual or evidence of some horrific butt malaise that we need to seek treatment for right away… so tell me what you think. Is your butt warmer, cooler, or the same temp as the rest of you? Thanks for letting me know!
