The Hottest Male Strippers in Pop Culture

Updated May 23, 2019 1.9k votes 382 voters 24.2k views27 items

It's no secret that plenty of actresses have played memorable roles as strippers in hit movies. But what about us girls? Hmm? Where's the fun for US? This list of the hottest male strippers in pop culture is (woefully) too short, but here's a gif to get through the lonely nights. It seems unfair that we women are short-changed when it comes to guys taking it all off for us on film, TV and elsewhere. The good news? We're about to hit the jackpot, so get those dollar bills ready!

As of August 2011, Steven Soderbergh was set to direct a male stripper movie called 'Magic Mike.' Yes, you read that right. And the cast? That is the part that will blow your mind, and send you scrambling to purchase tickets when it comes out in 2012. Scrambling, squealing and FLIPPING out. Don't believe me? Okay so far, the cast of strippers for this one includes Channing Tatum (who actually worked as an exotic dancer before he hit it big in Hollywood - the movie's based on his real-life experiences), Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey.

So, without further adieu, I present for your consideration a list of the hottest male strippers in pop culture - ever. And yes, I included the cast of 'The Full Monty.' They deserve it. Sure, it's not the Chippendales, but it's a great, great movie.

Ladies, did I miss any smokin' (guy) strippers? If so, please add them! Be sure to vote for your absolute favorites, too. I suspect Joe Manganiello, aka Alcide from 'True Blood,' may rise (ahem) to the top quickly. Or even Chris Farley! He gets a spot on the list for most hilarious stripper - ever.

    Patrick Swayze's portrayal of a Chippendale's dancer in the 'Saturday Night Live' skit with stripper hopeful Chris Farley is one of the snow's funniest-ever skits.

    Will star in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" male stripper movie. The film is said to be (loosely) based on Tatum's own experiences as a male stripper. He'll be a mentor to Alex Pettyfer's character, "The Kid."

    Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is yet another 'Jersey Shore' cast member who totally deserves a place on this list of pop culture male strippers. He shows his abs at any moment, for any reason. Wanna-be stripper, for sure.

    Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore' certainly deserves a mention on this list. While not actually a professional stripper (that we know of), he has shown "wanna be" tendencies while clubbing. Time and time again.
