Ash Ketchum. He's an ass man.
— Popular demotivator

This is nothing against the Japanese, but they are a pervy crew. Metal Gear Solid is quite possibly the perviest game series ever. Can you please splice in some of the boss battles against the Beauty & the Beast crew from MGSIV? It's literally CAMERA UP THEIR ASS the entire time.

"That is undoubtedly one of the most lovingly-crafted derieres I've ever seen in a video game. I'm kind of curious about how many man-hours went into sculpting and perfecting that particular part of Dagger's model, but not sure I'm prepared for the answer."

Brian: The lewdest entrance I've ever seen.
Vinny: I'm not—(snickering) I'm not trying to...I'm just describing what I saw: It was an entrance designed to show off her asshole. Not just her ass, but her actual tunnel.

Bad writers of female characters and Joel Schumacher, the nipples don't make a person. That's a very odd thing I have to explain, but this [points to chest] doesn't replace this [points to head]. I'm sure for some very desperate people it does, but for the rest of the thinking world that wants to be entertained, it really doesn't.

If it was up to me, I would've named this movie Angela's Ballsack...'s Ass and the Mystery of the Constant Close-Up Shots of Her Ass. No, really, why do they keep doing that? There's a difference between fanservice and having an uneasy paranoia that your audience may forget your main character has an ass. Woah, there it is.
Demolition D+ on Expelled from Paradise

The camera glides up, down and around these women's bodies like a giant tongue.

Asuka:“Ow! Watch it, Third!”
Shinji:“I’m sorr-“
Asuka:“I bet I could fling you off this spot hard enough to hit the roof of that truck, Third Child. What gives?”
Shinji:“Um… I wasn’t watching where I was going?”
Asuka:“….you were staring at my ass again, weren’t you?”
Asuka(smirking wickedly):“Good.”
A Crown of Stars, chapter 48

A small part of his brain was concentrating on not dropping the hot pot on his feet, because most of it was trying not to drool helplessly over the way Asuka's long, smooth legs disappeared up under the hem of the towel, mixed in with memories of last night that said sight triggered.
Shinji Ikari, Advice and Trust, chapter 3

Her tight blue shirt made her not inconsiderable curves very apparent, and the yellow and red shield emblem with the "S" inside it on her chest only served to draw the eye to that area.

Oh, for fuck's sake, movie, her face is up there!
Some Jerk with a Camera, on the shot of the first aid nurse in Escape from Tomorrow

Elliot: So I know what you're thinking...
(switches to J.D.'s perspective as he stares at her behind)
J.D. (voiceover): Your butt looks like two Pringles hugging...
J.D.: No you don't.
Scrubs, "My First Day"

The camera follows the swaying ass of SEXY OF NINE with all the dedication of a bum-sniffing Doberman.

I hate to see her go, but I love to watch her leave!
Jerry "The King" Lawler, when Ivory, who is down to bra and thong, is running to the back after Tori (Terri Poch) has defeated her in an Evening Gown Match, WWE SmackDown, August 26, 1999.

The framing of all these events makes it clear that the reader is supposed to find this arousing. […] There’s a lot of tonal dissonance going on here, because while the art frames everything as sexy, the plot treats it all as disgusting, at least in the first half.
