Where does sexy ass come from?

Sexy ass, for an “attractive butt,” starts popping up in the written record in the 1960s. Phrases such as tight, sexy ass were used in quite a few books in the early and late 1970s.

Also in the 1970s, we begin to see sexy-ass used as modifier. The -ass, here, is an intensifying suffix originating in Black slang, e.g., You have a sick-ass sense of humor or That’s a big-ass car. Compare badass.

Also in Black slang, ass can serve as a slang term for a person, so a sexy ass could be a “good-looking person,” e.g., Let me tell your sexy ass something. We can find hip-hop artist Drake using sexy ass in the Weeknd’s 2011 track “The Zone”: “Well girl let’s go, walk your broken heart through that door / Sit yo sexy ass on that couch / Wipe that lipstick off of your mouth.”

Who uses sexy ass?

As noted, sexy ass can be used in one of three ways. It can convey an actual “ass” is sexy, characterize something is sexy, or describe an individual as sexy.

Got a nice car? It’s a sexy-ass car. Think that woman over there is hot? She’s a sexy-ass woman. It’s used either as an honest compliment or in a playful, joking manner. Doesn’t matter if it’s got legs or four wheels, it can all be sexy-ass.

Sexy ass in the latter, individual sense is common in Black slang and hip-hop. Hip-hop sings the praises of all three types of sexy ass in songs. Even Britney Spears got some sexy ass in her 2011 single, “(Drop Dead) Beautiful”: “I just want your D / Boy, come over here with your sexy ass.”
