Thanks to the 2012 movie Magic Mike,
and its follow-up Magic Mike XXL
in 2015, male strip clubs seem to be more present than ever. Hunk-O-Mania is just one such operation, and it has shows in 19 cities around the country. Another show, Thunder From Down Under, hails from Australia and has two troupes of men touring the country, as well as one permanent residency in Vegas. Then there’s Magic Men Live
which begins touring in April. And these guys clean up — on any given night, Roddy told me he makes upwards of $500 in cash tips. Male strip culture is more popular than ever. And the people running these clubs are surprisingly tuned in to what women want.
