Take a few guesses at what you might think a "Belfie Stick" is. Go ahead, have as many guesses as you want. It's probably as bad or worse as what you think it is.

You may have heard of the selfie, it's a photo that a person takes of themselves. Many products, like the selfie stick, have been invented to help those poor unfortunate souls looking to take the perfect selfie. But what, you may be asking, is a belfie?

Sadly, a belfie is another kind of selfie. It's a behind selfie, taken of the derriere and supposed to look like a casual over-the-shoulder shot. However, if the person doesn't have a mirror, then what are they to do? Not just anyone can take a belfie, those are next-level skills.

Well, they could always use the Belfie Stick. Welcome to 2015, everyone. Let's all shake our heads together.

The Belfie Stick is the newest selfie helper to hit the market. It's a bendable, poseable titanium steel stick that was specifically designed to help you take the best butt shot possible.

Interestingly, the Belfie Stick wasn't created by a frequent user of belfies. Instead, it was invented by a social media site, ON.com, that saw a big upward trend in belfies.

"Our users are our biggest indicator of selfie trends being that it’s the type of photo they post most often," ON.com’s chief technology officer Kevin Deegan said. "We’ve noticed a huge spike in users taking butt selfies in recent months so the natural next step was for us to develop a device to assist our users in taking one."

ON.com polled over 10,000 members of its community before coming up with the Belfie Stick. They discovered that a lot of people wanted to take the perfect belfie but found it really difficult to do. So, according to the needs of the community, ON.com created the Belfie Stick.

The Belfie Stick is now available for preorder here for a mere $79.99.
