The world of male stripping isn't all adoration, sexual perks and easy money, as Francesca Steele finds out when she meets a few of the industry's titans. When asked recently about the allure of being a male stripper, Channing Tatum, who plays one in the upcoming film Magic Mike, laughed and said, "Money, girls and a good time". Why do men strip? Why the hell not? Not for them the ominous low-lit venues and sexual vulnerability of female stripping; when it comes to men taking their clothes off, they're the ones in charge. Tatum himself actually used to be a stripper before he hit Hollywood, so he knows a thing or two about a world that, despite requiring its participants to shave their legs, oil their chests and quite literally expose themselves in the most nerve-wracking way possible, still seems to many of its new recruits like the best job in the world. In Magic Mike, the boys leave the stage with wads of twenties stuffed between their thighs, and girls lining up to go home with them.

"Magic Mike" reminds us that there's very little that's sexy about banana hammocks and air-humping
As the lights dim there is a brief hush. The glass clinking and chatting subdues in the darkened room and women take their seats for the show. Women customers are singing along, and some stand and clap as the host takes to the stage. Erotic dance is one of the most contentious issues in feminist debates today, both within academic contexts and within feminist activism and political activities, and is a source of fascination in media and popular cultural representations.
Onstage was an overly tanned dark-and-handsome type dressed like a race car driver. He slowly unzipped his onesie while popping his knee to the throbbing techno music, which was accented by sounds of a car engine revving. It simply shows male stripping as it so often is: goofball, absurd and sometimes repulsive. That raises what is surely the most critical question of our time: Why is female-oriented male stripping so often unsexy? As far as I can tell, female patrons are typically cracking up, shielding their eyes in mock horror or cartoonishly objectifying male dancers as a performance for their friends.
