The Magic of Males?

In addition to the glorification of the built male body, Magic Mike posits stripping as a profession, as something one can “have fun, [and] make safe choices” (from: (Un)feminist guilty pleasure: I don’t want to critique Magic Mike) doing. These men take agency of their sexual potency and capitalize off of their virility. Would this same strategy work with a movie centered around female strippers? How might it be different? The same?
