How To Get That Latina Butt




Last month during our edit meet, we were poring over a Cosmo Latin American edition (hey, that counts as work, okay!) and we couldn't help but notice how every model in the magazine had a gorgeous behind- every single one of them! Was a bootylicious behind a Latino 'thing', just like je ne sais quoi-brand of sexiness is a French trait and gutsy, go-getter an American?

It suddenly seemed like every country's women had their unique FFF quality! Which is why we decided to experiment-we wrote to Cosmo editors around the globe and asked them about the one most fabulous trait their women had. The replies blew us away-did you know that British women know the ultimate secret to frizz-free tresses or that Polish women believe being selfish is crucial to making a relationship work? We didn't either! Which is why we have put together a list of the coolest, quirkiest, sexiest qualities from 11 countries...along with tips and tricks to make them a part of your fun, fearless lives, of course...

Latin America

FFF Secret: "We Latinas know that real women have curves are confident about our 'dangerous behinds'. We know men love women with curves, which is why we don't care too much about 'size 0'."

Steal That Mojo: While most of us hound our men with "Does my butt look big in this" posers, Latin women know that men really prefer women with some flesh on their behinds. And it's not just Latin American men who like big booties-we spoke to men across the metros and a whopping 76 per cent said a curvy tush was a total turn-on. More proof that your idea of what men like is total hogwash: a recent study showed that the female figure college women thought men preferred was significantly skinnier than the preferences actually expressed by the males.

Bottom line: love your curves! Wear well-fitting jeans to show that bot off, exercise for a bootylicious behind, and strut your stuff with confidence. It also doesn't hurt to remind yourself that sexiness isn't only skin-deep. Ask yourself if you've ever been attracted to someone with a lessthan-perfect body. You probably have; but you thought he was sexy as hell anyway. Which tells you that when you looked at him as an entire head-to-toe package, he was pretty damn fantastic-just like you are!


FFF Secret : "Aussie girls know that if there's one way to lure a male specimen, it's with a barbeque. The art of barbeque hosting has been passed down through generations of Australian women-all you need to do is turn on the barbie, throw on the meat, and within seconds, men will flock to you, oohing and aahing over your swift ability to dump a sausage on a piece of bread, squeeze on some tomato sauce, and hand it to them. Works every time!"

Steal That Mojo: It might sound cliché, but it's true-the way to most men's hearts really is through their stomach, says Leil Lowndes, author of How To Make Anyone Fall In Love With You. Step one to nailing male attention like they do in Down Under: get yourself a barbeque (like, duh!).

"Pick something electric so you won't have to worry about smoking up the house," says Kunal Khaitan, owner of the Mumbaibased BBQ joint Steaks & More. Next step: plan a barbie party-visit www.freebbq-invitations.ca to send out free e-invites; deck your verandah or terrace with candles, mattresses, and a table covered with a checkered cloth; place pints of beer in the refrigerator; and get the grub together-you'll need a selection of different meats, sea food, baby potatoes, and mushrooms.

Finally, crib this supersimple barbeque recipe from www.steaksguide. com, which will ensure you do more number-giving than slaving-over-grill- in a mediumsized saucepan, stir together a large bottle of ketchup, one cup of white granulated sugar, two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, two teaspoons of chilli powder, half a cup of chopped onion, one fourth teaspoon of garlic salt, and half a cup of white vinegar. Bring the mixture to boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Brush this delicious sauce over meat or veggies while they are cooking on the grill.
