One question I've been asked repeatedly is when am I going to see Magic Mike. Not if, when. I know, everyone assumes since I am heavily entrenched in the erotic romance genre that I am a friend of the mostly-naked-male. And while I do love a mostly-naked-male, I'm not a big fan of male strippers. Or female strippers, for that matter, but that's a subject for another time.
I'll allow you a few minutes to retrieve your jaw from the floor.
It's true. I don't get down with the whole "flail around like a fool with a dollar bill in my hand to get the attention of a dude gyrating in a sequined banana hammock" thing. I might, and I stress MIGHT, consider visiting a strip club with a select few of my girlfriends who I could count on to compose themselves in the same aloof manner men feign when partaking of the pay-per-booty-shake. Maybe, but not likely.
I won't bore you with my very long diatribe about gender inequalities in regards to sexual behavior, practice, and overall societal expectations. Instead, I'll sum it up like this:
It's not hard to find a man who will get naked for you...FOR FREE.
No, really. There are an ungodly amount of men who will happily show you the goods with nary a moments notice. See a half way decent looking guy at your friend's birthday party? Wonder if he's packin' heat or pinky-hung? Crook your finger at him, lead him to a quiet room and straight up ask him, "Can I see your cock-a-doodle-doo?" 2 to 1 he drops trou before you finish your sentence.
"But these guys are built and hot," you cry. Built, sure. Hot, that's debatable. Time for shocked #2: I'm not jazzed up by any of those actors. I'm not saying you shouldn't be, as we all have our own preferences, but they don't float my boat.
So, in summary, I won't be seeing Magic Mike any time soon. But, if you're looking for some hot guys and are a fan of M/M erotica, I suggest the Holsum College series by Daisy Harris. Each novella is fantastic, and in contrast to the way Magic Mike hides the main attraction of man-bits, the Holsum College guys leave nothing to the imagination.
