Today I learned about

Arse-clapping.
Apparently this is a skill much admired.
A sort of twerk that makes yer bum cheeks slap together and er... clap.
Have I been living under a rock?
MN is a veritable hive of information.

😂😂 why is this in Feminism? I expected you to have learnt something a lot different!

It was a thread about expectations of arse size for women. And aspiring to be able to clap ones butt cheeks.
I thought it made a change from expectations of hairlessness. grin Now not only are the yoof expected to be hairless, but also be able to control both the size and movement of one’s derrière in order to achieve auditory acclaim.
I was mildly curious as to whether this knowledge had reached any other women interested in women-centred fads.
I was trying to picture Brian from Hull feeling the pressure to perfect his butt clapping. Or even Steve from Solihull.

Clapping bottom? 😂 I don’t know how that’s even possible

Icantreachthepretzels Sat 11-Apr-20 19:08:06

I discovered this was possible when Nicki Minaj was listing the reasons she was proud of her arse - one reason being that it could clap.

I'm afraid my reaction was: 'stop the earth I want to get off'.

MiggyMoggyMoo Sat 11-Apr-20 19:09:20

Mine does that when I run up the stairs... and so does my belly pooch! grin

My boobs give me tumultuous applause when I run downstairs.

JellyfishandShells Sat 11-Apr-20 19:12:03

I have just tried. I am a failure. Though D has rarely laughed as much .

biscuitsanddiddums Sat 11-Apr-20 19:15:45

Omg! Now I have to google. Although I am slightly weirded out by there being an actual article that listed ‘reasons I am proud of my arse’ in and of itself.
And yes, Agnes. I am equally both ‘stop the world I want to get off’ and ‘eh? How?’
It’s like that ridiculous can you lick your elbow thing. You don’t really want to try but the thought does go there.
(I’m 50. I know without trying that I can neither lick my elbow nor clap my butt cheeks)
Where has this come from? I have visions of those weird mating displays from the bird world. The ostentatious of feather, stamping and making odd caws. Not usually any clapping involved.

Still confused, is the clapping a good thing?

MrsDoylesTeaBags Sat 11-Apr-20 19:26:48

I don't know if I can make my arse clap but it can toot a pretty tune grin

Pertella Sat 11-Apr-20 19:45:04

How does it even work? Are both cheeks clapping against each other or are they slapping against the tops of your thighs confused

Cuntysnark Sat 11-Apr-20 19:56:21

I’m not going to try but this has made me laugh. So we have wind & percussion arses. Anyone for brass or strings?

Saisong Sat 11-Apr-20 20:03:40

Are arse piercings a thing - that could account for the brass section.

And a well placed thong could probably play a pretty tune along with the tooting.

WatchingFromTheWings Sat 11-Apr-20 20:11:54

Don't knowing this will work but...arse clapping. (I'm sorry). 

WatchingFromTheWings Sat 11-Apr-20 20:12:16

Balls. It didn't load.

WatchingFromTheWings Sat 11-Apr-20 20:12:43

WatchingFromTheWings Sat 11-Apr-20 20:13:16

I give up. It was a gif showing arse clapping. 🤷‍♀️

Saisong Sat 11-Apr-20 20:14:58

I think we are all better off that way @WatchingFromTheWings

biscuitsanddiddums Sat 11-Apr-20 20:17:11

Oh. Yes apparently it is supposed to be a good thing. I think only if the resulting clap is caused by horizontal movement rather than vertical... (sadly the butt/ thigh slap is less aspirational, albeit <peers downward> much easier to achieve).
I’m only hanging around to see what on earth wings has found.. (that mn won’t let her post)

Yes I knew this. Tis often referenced in songs featuring the likes of Jason Derulo and Nicki Minaj. I had to google it because I didn't know what they meant by "can you make it clap for me". I definitely cannot.

Cuntysnark Sat 11-Apr-20 20:20:52

I’m loathe to google arse piercings but I’ll do it to save anyone else. Wonder if the news would be keen to show this social distancing orchestra. Any suggestions for the first piece-Wind beneath my wings for a modern piece but what about a classic? Air on the G string?

Cuntysnark Sat 11-Apr-20 20:22:07

You CAN have your arse cleavage pierced but(t) not sure that’s low enough to count.

MrsWooster Sat 11-Apr-20 20:23:37

Desultory participation in Joe Wicks has proved that, like a pp, my belly can clap on my thighs, but the only clapping my arse is doing is when it collapses onto the leather sofa.

n00bMaster69 Sat 11-Apr-20 20:23:48

I can arse clap! It's my (drunken) party trick.
