    His "sitter" is what he sits on. That's the euphemism for his rear end/buttocks/bottom/ass, depending on your normal word. I don't see it as much of a metaphor, though.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
