Boot-y-licious

Like many magazine headlines, this has a double meaning. Booty (used in singular form) means buttocks (used in plural.) Booty can also mean sex, as in the expression booty call. To say a woman is bootylicious is to describe them as very sexy. The expression is a "portmanteau word" that is created by combining booty and delicious. Here, the term is used jokingly to describe a sexy and very expensive ($880) pair of boots.

From Vibe Vixen Magazine, Fall 2005
