'Les fesses' is a mainstream noun, while 'bum' is slang (with these days a touch of euphemism about it). Wouldn't you think 'buttocks' would be a better match? Just listen to Tom Hanks saying the word in Forrest Gump for practice!

Hi Lucien,

I have changed ‘les fesses’ for the buttocks.

Thank you for pointing this out...
