On Magic Mike (and porn)

Saw Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike”: the first half is hotter than any gayporn I’ve watched this year (and I watch a lot!). I mean… Channing Tatum’s butt and Alex Pettyfer’s torso alone make for the perfect wet dream. Which begs the question: what is more erotic? The cheap (and repetitive) acrobatics you may watch for free on any tube site? Or the dramatic tension in a ‘mainstream’ movie (the tension between what you get to see and what you’d like to see. Between desire and fulfillment… Or lack thereof)? Pictured here Channing and Alex in a promo pic for © “Magic Mike” (courtesy of Entertainment Weekly)
