Hmm...
 
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 derričre, so can I take it from Douglas īs reaction that the term is not quite as complimentary?

Very common in women over 40 ...(sometimes earlier!) as happens with men īs 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."
