stea could have someting to do with standing
topygic could have something to do with topographical (as in a map or relief map)
some type of a map that displays the geography in an up and down (standing) manner?
EDIT:  I looked it up--very funny Frank LOL

Well, I know that callipygic means having a nice derri�re, so can I take it from Douglas �s reaction that the term is not quite as complimentary?

Very common in women over 40 ...(sometimes earlier!) as happens with men �s stomachs ... after lack of exercise for many years and a liking for beer and junk food ...  ;-) 
edit : Very nice idea, Frank !

There is this movie "The women." In one scene someone says about an angry model: "She has just finished anger management." The other person asks: "What does she have to be angry about?" Answer: "She is hungry."
