What’s Wrong With Penises On Screen?

In the article ‘Magic Mike,’ Junk in the Face and Female Gaze written by Don Stewart, author Tracy Clark-Flory points out “how little junk we see” in the film Magic Mike (2012) and in other pornographic screenings as well. She states, “That seeing male strippers is seen as something ‘naughty’ – like eating ice cream right out of the carton,” and calls watching naked men on screen “taboo”. Stewart credits history as the reason why Western Culture has concealed male sexual pleasure from the mainstream media because it was too much for the female mind. Do you think, after seeing Magic Mike society will eventually accept revealing the male “junk” more often, or is Magic Mike just one of few exceptions? To add, would you call Magic Mike progress concerning gender and sexuality?
