Science: Sarah Cox Designs Digital "Virtual Buttocks"

Yes, it's fun to just Google naughty body parts.

Anyway, they say this Cox has finally plummed the mysteries of the ass:

A digital model of the human buttocks engineered at the university is set to bring new levels of comfort to office workers and wheelchair users.

Masters student Sarah Cox, from the Faculty of Engineering's Bioengineering Institute, is using advanced computer and mathematical modelling techniques to create anatomically correct virtual buttocks.

Formway, a New Zealand-based office furniture company, approached the university looking for scientific input into chair design.

"The goal is for Formway to have a virtual model of the buttocks to use each time it designs a new chair to predict how the muscles will react," Miss Cox said.

The virtual model will demonstrate what happens to the muscles beneath the skin on sitting – something that cannot be achieved using a real person – allowing the furniture company to scientifically assess the comfort of their designs before they are built.

Miss Cox's research is based on data collected from a male cadaver in the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project. Images and measurements from the cadaver are used to create a model of the buttocks incorporating 30 muscles in the pelvic region, and the pelvis and leg bones.

The data is combined with existing hamstring and quadriceps models developed at the Bioengineering Institute, providing the most detailed and complex computer representation of the human buttocks achieved so far in the world.

The end product will demonstrate what happens to the buttock muscles of an average male when he sits.

Number of ejaculations: 22 (and counting)


Just To Drop My Penis One Before I'm Tempted To Give It Its Own Post: The Mayo Clinic explains: What is "hidden penis"?

Actually, There's More Than One: Penis Pump Judge Demands Release... of Pension.

onvicted penis pump judge Donald Thompson thinks he should collect his $7,789 a month pension even though he's sitting in prison, serving his sentence for masturbating while presiding over jury trials including a murder case.

The Oklahoma Public Employees Retirement System had issued a ruling to withhold Thompson's retirement benefits after he was found guilty in June at jury trial of four felony courts of indecent exposure.

They say his felony convictions violate his oath of office in which he pledged to support, obey and defend the Constitutions of the United States and the state and to faithfully discharge his duties as a district judge.

In fairness, the word "discharge" is ambiguous and invites misreading.
