Selling Sex Short: Stripper Movies

1 Comment

The Movie Magic Mike came off as a low budget film, and an introduction. It seems the time has come when women can go to the theater and watch the same thing men did in the movie Show Girls.
I have had the opportunity to see both films and I can tell you this, both are not equal. The plot for Show Girls was a woman hoping to rise to the top and doing so by betraying another girl. It was about sex and stripping, nudity, and fantasy. Magic mike was a plot about something, mostly stripping, but not much else. The film lacked in base. In fact it lacked in showing one full session of stripping, and looking around me the ladies, and gentlemen needed the view. It seems that women in their forties and fifties are looking for love in all the hard places. That was the draw. Most younger women would have no clue how big of a deal this movie was. Since previous ideals of male stripper movies have been bashed hard in the press. Saying women were not going to go see such an thing. It would surely never play in any Muslim country. It may not even carry to heavy Muslim areas of Europe, but for women here it makes for some nice eye candy.
Just don’t go looking for content. The movie never gets off the ground. A young woman working as a nurses aid who’s brother gets into stripping, and his friend who makes it all happen. With no struggle or plot. To the end where the sister and friend decide to spend seven hours doing, well the movie ended there. It was a struggle to get content from the movie other than some stripping, aging, and drug use.
I would have rather watched Show Girls again, f just for the cat fight. The men are hot and the movie does provide some scenes that are a bit risky, but nothing to go over the moon for. But as an atheist who wants sex out of the closet, and back where it belongs. Which is on the discussion table of society, it was a move forward. I hope in the future we can deal with the fact women are sexual just as much as men, and we are allowed to enjoy it.

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing the next Woody Allen film To Rome with Love.
    I saw ‘Midnight in Paris’ three times when I was Brussles at the end of last year. If ‘Rome’ is half as good it will be excellent.

    Best sex in a film: Mulholland Drive. Auburn. Hey ho.
