With apologies to Ginuwine, we'll never be able to hear "Pony" again without picturing Channing Tatum's sexy moves from Magic Mike. Tatum is reprising his role as the stripper who just wants to weld unique furniture (we all have our dreams) in Magic Mike XXL, which comes out July 1. He and the boys aren't the first ones to take off their clothes slowly and seductively on film, though. Hopefully, they won't be the last.
Perhaps you need some more smooth, seductive moves to properly titillate you in anticipation of the second coming of Magic Mike. Or, maybe you just enjoy the fine art of a good striptease or burlesque performance. We were more than happy to put our noses to the grindstone and pour through cinematic history to find the best stripteases ever committed to film.
Click on through to watch. And remember: You can leave your hat on.

Channing Tatum, Magic Mike
If you listen very closely, you'll hear that "Pony" has an underlying beat of heavy panting. Feel free to sync yours to it while watching Tatum's performance.

Salma Hayek, From Dusk Till Dawn
Well before Britney danced with that snake, Salma Hayek gave a seductive performance with a serpent in this Rodriguez / Tarantino joint.

Final scene, The Full Monty

Natalie Portman, Closer
"Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off, but it's better if you do."
