Dimples

Do you have them? Do they affect your sexual life? Is it a myth that they affect the orgasmic or squirting capabilities? Is it possible to make them appear somehow if you currently can't see them?

I think they look very sexy!

I have them, but it has nothing to do with any of the things you mentioned.

The "dimples" are associated with the sacroiliac joint which is basically the connection between the hip bone (pelvis) and the spine. The dimple effect is a result of the associated ligaments. Technically, everyone has them. Whether or not they are visible depends upon how tight the ligaments are and how much body fat is present over the area.

Kindred to save the day!

Both men and women can have them. (Noticed this was in Women's Sexual Health.) They wouldn'y effect the sex life at all. It's just another thing that can be sexualized like a collar bone.

Another thing I never would have known about if it wasn't for EF. Great explanation Kindred!

My boyfriend has them. It's just a part of him.

I do not have them. I think they're much more common on underweight people. I've read about them in online eating disorder communities, and they're idolized just like hip bones (iliac) in the front. I guess that's why I'm hesitant to exalt them in women.

Hip Bones

Does anyone who is at or above a healthy weight have them? (I'm just curious, don't share if you don't want to!)

I am at a healthy weight, and I have the back dimples. My hip bones do not stick out in front though. I've always had them, they don't affect sex one way or the other, from my experience. They just are what they are. I think they're kind of cute though.

Thanks for the explanation Kindred! My girlfriend is the opposite. She has the hip bones but no visible dimples. Other stuff I love very much is a central line above the bellybutton! I think that one comes from muscles.

Will the dimples appear if somebody loses weight?

I have them and I'm not underweight. Mine aren't super obvious though. My boyfriend has them too and his are more noticeable.

I'm at a healthy weight and I have them my whole life. They don't have any affect on my sex life (aside from the fact that some guys think they're sexy ).

Even when I was heavier I still had them. Though they are more prominent when I weight less...but not much more.

I like dimples, I have them, and I don't think they effect anything.

It is a natural contour on a woman's back who is physically fit but it doesn't have anything to do with orgasm, or squirting. You can make them appear with proper exercize and diet. You need a workout routine that lengthens the body and scuplts the butt to be round and for a 'heart' or 'peach' shape.

I've had them my entire life, even when I was underweight. Apparently genetics governs how pronounced they are—not body weight or fitness level—because I've always had them no matter what my weight or fitness level has been.

This is an interesting discussion because I used to wonder why I had them while my friends did not. I thought it was bizarre that I had dimples in such a seemingly odd location and was embarrassed by them when I happened to notice them (how often do you look at your own back?).

When I was underweight, I also had visible iliac lines (though not NEARLY as extreme as the photo pasted above). But I never found them attractive. I thought they looked unpleasantly harsh, and I wished for a more softly curving hip line.

I do love the outline of clavicles though (as long as they are not so extremely pronounced that they bring to mind skeletal models in a lab). I have small clavicles and shoulders, so even at my lowest weight, they were only just visible but not defined. My chest and shoulders have always had a "softer" appearance (when I wanted a chiseled appearance). Oh, well. At least I can take solace in the fact that I've been told I have a "pretty chest." I just wish my clavicles (and my shoulders) were a bit more prominent.

I agree, it's all genetics.

At one point I was significantly overweight, and I still had them - and very pronounced at that. I lost weight, and they stayed around the same.

I wish my hipbones where a bit more protruded, but my mother gave me big oh curvy hips, so even when I'm underweight, I have a forever hourglass.

I have them, and have had them underweight and pushing into overweight. They haven't really changed at all, from either end of the spectrum.

I didn't really give them much thought, they seem to just be an anatomical part of my body. No big deal, and no big correlation to my sexuality.

Hmmm, I guess it's one of those little things that a person has or doesn't have, like a widow's peak or dimples on the face. I guess I was wrong about the weight issue. Thanks for answering my question!

I am at a healthy weight and my front hip bones (ilia) only show when I'm lying down. I wish they would show all the time, but I don't have very prominent ilia anyway. My girlfriend has a higher BMI than I do and her hip bones show even when she's standing up.

I'm a plus-sized woman and mine are fully visible. And, yes, as Kindred said, they're just the markers of your SI joints

I just checked my ass in the mirror to confirm that I don't have them. heh. I used to be able to see them a little bit more before I started birth control and gained about 20 pounds. I asked my boyfriend, and he said they're occasionally visible.

I was at a healthy weight before starting birth control, and I still am at a healthy weight.

I think how visible one's iliac crest is has to do with the angle at which the ilia (plural for ilium) tilt. Some people's ilia tilt and curve forward more while other people's ilia tilt back some.

I've also puzzled over the reason some people have concave lines where their spine is while others have slightly convex lines in which the vertebrae are visible as little bumps (mine has always been the latter, no matter my weight or fitness level). I used to think it had to do with how much muscle the person has on his or her back, but even when working out and building muscle, some people still have the visible vertebrae while some thin people with seemingly little muscle have the concave line. I suppose it's just genetics for this particular trait as well.

Other cool genetic traits to contemplate are whether you have free-hanging or attached ear lobes, "hitch hiker's thumbs," or a tongue that you can laterally roll/curl.

None of these things amount to a hill of beans, really, but as long as it's not asserted that either the presence or absence of any of these traits is "superior," then it's always fun to compare differences. Variety makes things interesting. It would be boring if we all looked the same.

We should, perhaps, not cast stones at the way people look--there are people right here in this community who ARE that thin, or who ARE battling eating disorders, and saying that body types similar to theirs are disturbing is just unkind.

I'm not being unkind. Being anorexic and dangerously skinny IS disturbing. I went through a period where I hardly ate at all. Though I didn't know it then it was a very disturbing time in my life and NOT healthy at all. I ended up being hospitalized. People who are battling eating disorders need to know it is disturbing and that they're dying slowly. That's a fact, it's not an unkind dis.

I had to look 3 times to realize that girl is a bit too thin I was so focused on the beautiful hips. Anyway, we have some really long and informative posts here I'm glad I opened this topic. It's not that easy to open an interesting discussion but this is going well

I follow this blog, ideagasms who published a video a few years ago teaching squirting and Stephanie said girls who have visible dimples have better luck at achieveing quirting. I was looking for a confirmation that it was true or he just said that. They tend to sell very clickbank-y stuff that I dislike, so maybe they was wrong about this too. But they have some genuine value in their newsletters..

Back on track it's weird that males can have dimples too. I gotta check mine in the mirror!

As someone who is in treatment, trust me. When I was dying slowly, it was deeply disturbing. My days were spent vomiting for 2-3 hours, working out for one hour, and sleeping for about 16 hours because I was too weak to do anything else and I knew I was dying. There are people in some online communities who idolize it, but they're usually not the ones dying of the disorder.

I only posted the picture to show which hip bones I was referring to, as there are many bones and knobs that make up the human pelvis. I didn't mean for it to be triggering. Is it possible for a moderator to delete it now?

I find the dimples very attractive but usually the man or woman who has it is thin not always stick thin but not chunky.

I'm at a healthy weight and I have them. When I weighed a little less (and was still at a healthy weight) they were a little more prominent, but they're still visible nonetheless

I have slight dimples, not very noticeable though, but I like them. I'm 93 pounds and my hip bones are pointy and they do stick out, but NOT like the female in that photo above! I'm just built very small though. I really don't think those dimples effect orgasm. That surely is not true.
