    Has this ever happened to you? You’re just living life, minding your own business, when –suddenly — you remember you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping!

    And it’s never for that one person who is easy to shop for, either; it’s always that one who has everything, so you never know what to give them except your continued friendship or something.

    That may have been last year, or the year before that, or the year before that, or the year before that, but not this year! No, this year is different. This year is special. This year, give that person who has everything the gift they can really get behind: The Buttress.

    “The Buttress is an all natural latex pillow and support in the form of a big and beautiful booty,” said creator Jiayang Guo in an emailed statement to NextShark. “It’s not just in the shape of a booty, but it also comfortably cradles the head and is great for all kinds of sleepers.”

    A quick look on the website shows the Buttress’ benefits: it’s made of natural latex from tree sap, is 100% biodegradable, hypoallergenic, and dust mite resistant. The plump pillow’s site claims it’s ergonomic for all sleeping positions, including “face buriers”.

    As for the idea behind this glorious gift? The website elaborates:

    “One day not too long ago, while laying down to take a nap after speaking with his woman, our founder felt like he would sleep a lot easier if he had his hand placed tenderly on her butt.”

    “Light bulb!”

    Guo, who came to the U.S. when he was 5, wants to live the American dream — a chicken in every pot and a butt in every bedroom, to boot(y). Like many great works of art, the Buttress was inspired by a woman, his girlfriend, who had sadly moved away. Guo says the Buttress, “along with her undies and her favorite perfume”, is of “great comfort” to him.

    So if you’re looking for a cheeky gift for that special someone, look no further than the Buttress. Your gift will definitely won’t go bottom up, as they’re gonna love it — no ifs, ands, or buts.

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.

    However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.

    We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way.  Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
