Which is all just another way of saying: I feel justified in having gone to see Magic Mike. They can make you question yourself: Why can’t earn more money/network better/find yourself fawned over by some buxom assistant?

I met a guy on a dance floor in 2006 – he was busting out some seriously rhythmic and impressive moves — and then we started dating, and then we had sex, and it was most mundane experience of my whole entire life, one that soured me on the idea that guys who move well in life will do so in the bedroom.
