How do we react to this?

In anticipation for the show to start, the women in line hoot and holler at Tatum as he walks into the club. Inside, the women react barbarically to Tatum’s dance moves. Are the results of the women’s behavior enhanced by the situation they are in – safe (not actually having sex), taboo (hardly see men dance like that), and a group activity that arouses their curiosity?

Quotes to ponder:
“Women are so used to seeing the female body equalized on screen – from the point of view of the male gaze – that we don’t even know how to react to the sexualized male body?”

“Ladies-only male strip clubs exist primarily for groups of female friends to get a li’l wild ‘n’ crazy – in a parodic way – not for individual women to pursue their carnal desires”
