5 Men I Find More Appealing Than The Magic Mike XXL Guys

Magic Mike XXL came out and I was like, "Huh?" I did see Magic Mike and was probably the only person who was like, "Where's the plot?" (I wrote about my feelings on it here.) If I'm spending $7+ to see a movie, there better the hell be a plot.

And I just....look, male strippers have never excited me. Maybe this makes me a prude. Fine. But there are so many other men who intrigue me even more.

I also find it amusing when strippers gyrate and do their funny stripper moves.



I just want to shout, "Weeeee!" Or "penis" like I have Tourettes or something. Not press dollar bills into their spandex pants.


Here are men I find more appealing than the Magic Mike guys.


1. My husband.



I mean. Duh. Or any guy in the military. If you are risking your life for your country, it's much sexier than doing lap dances.



2. Nerds.



I love them. Love them. Love them. If one speaks science to me, it's a turn on. I've always loved the nerds.



3. John Krasinski.


He's awesome and he's a genuine nice guy. Nice guys don't finish last in my eyes. I never went through that bad boy phase.



4. Tyrion Lannister.


What? He's awesome. And he always pays his debts.


5. Gilbert Blythe.




I'm still bummed that Jonathan Crombie, who played Gilbert, passed away. He did such a great job portraying the character.



So yeah. Magic Mike men aren't for me. But if you're all for defending your country? Or if you're sarcastic and save me when I'm hanging off a bridge, I'll find you more interesting than men with abs and terrifying dance moves.

  3. I have no interest in paying to see this movie unless it's $1 from Redbox and it's good to know I'm not the only one. There are so many men I find more attractive than the guys in Magic Mike and John Krasinski is definitely on that list.

  4. I couldn't stand the first one so I likely won't see this one. I honestly watched the first one because of I liked Matt Bomer from White Collar. His character in Magic Mike character not so much.

  5. I thought I was the only one that found Magic Mike ridiculous. I'm so glad I'm not alone!

  6. Gilbert Blythe!!! I LOVE Anne of Green Gables so much!

  7. Honestly, I never saw the first one, so I probably won't see this one. I do love that Tyrion is on your list though!

  8. I never saw the first one and didn't even realize there was a second one until today when I was buying my movie ticket for Inside Out. This is a great list.
    Surely I've told you that Peter Dinklage's mom was my art teacher, right? And my mom knows her. Peter came from my township but I don't know him, sadly. Just his mom.

  10. HAHAHA can I please just tell you I just read about 11 super-serious blogs that covered everything from racism to breastfeeding issues to retirement and beyond....and then I got to your blog and it made my whole Saturday ok again.

    I am crazy about military men (obviously) and have an addiction to Sheldon Cooper.

    Thank you for lighting up my weekend with your awesome post!

  11. These are wonderful. Ross Geller was my boy. MY BOY.

  12. So I'm not the only one who thinks male strippers are utterly ridiculous? And I'm far from being a prude!

    ReplyDelete
  13. :O I loved the first Magic Mike - haven't seen this one yet but I can't wait. I agree nerds are rather delicious but i'm not going to lie - the first magic mike was hot hot hot :D

  14. So I'm going to name drop here, but I hung out with Channing Tatum one night back in the days, and OMG that man can dance and I love me a boy who can dance. And he's a really nice guy, not a douche at all. But I totally love Gilbert Blythe. I wanted to marry him when I was a kid... HAHA

    ReplyDelete
  15. Too funny! I haven't seen either of the Magic Mike movies and have no intentions to... just not my thing! I love your list. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I haven't seen the first one and really have no plans to

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't get what people see in Channing Tatum.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have never seen any of the Magic Mike movies and have no interest in doing so. Male strippers do not do anything for me either.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ha! Great post. I haven't seen the Magic anime movies but it gave a good laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I didn't hate the Magic Mike movies, but I didn't necessarily enjoy them either. I will say, however, that I find Joe Manganiello extremely sexy, but I thought that well before Magic Mike was even a thing aha.

    P.S. Movie prices are $13+ here in Australia (ridiculous!), so I /really/ don't go unless it's something I know that I'm going to love.

  21. So I'm in the gang of disliking male strippers..Enjoyed reading much better men , we can adore.

  22. Hahaha .. Rarely happens that Husband Comes on Number 1 position on Wife's wish List ! Chandresh

    ReplyDelete
  23. Omg lol such a good list my husband happened to be military so yup I totally approve of that. Thanks for sharing.

  24. I don't need a stripper in my life but Magic Mike would be fine by me. I also wouldn't mind Matthew McCaunaugh

    ReplyDelete
  25. I actually never saw this movie. Prior to dating my current bf, I hadn't been to the movies in like four years lol. But male strippers are definitely not my thing and my future bridesmaids already know, if they bring one, it won't turn out well.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ha! I didn't care for Magic Mike. Oh, I definitely like the nerds. They are too cute

    ReplyDelete
  27. You seriously crack me up with your humor. But I'm with you on the nerdy guys, they're the hottest to me, especially hot nerds that don't know they're hot.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I literally have ZERO interest in seeing magic mike... oiled up gyrating men... yea not appealing whatsoever lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. I saw the first Magic Mike because of all the hype - so I needed to check it out for myself! But I agree, a movie must have a plot to keep my attention and be worth the theater ticket price.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Tyrion is greater than all! I find him more appealing than almost any other character in Game of Thrones or any character in anything.

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL, that's funny. I like the Magic Mike movies but I agree with the men on your list as well.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I saw both movies and they were both good fun and laughs for a girls night out.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My list would be: 1. My husband, 2. My husband, 3. My husband, 4. My husband, 5. My husband. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love Channing Tatum, but I haven't been a huge fan of the Magic Mike movies. I'm also a huge fan of Tyrion Lannister! lol Good picks ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. My list would only consist of one. My hubby - married 16 years and will always be the only one I have eyes for ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yasss girl, military men and nerds!! I'm right there with you! I did see the first movie and it really didn't do much for me. I too, found the lack of plot disappointing. I never did see the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I agree with your list of appeal men (especially my HUSBAND!). Although I did enjoy magic mike. Maybe it was because I went with a bunch of girlfriends and we had a great time or maybe it was Channing Tatum (yum!) lol! It wasn't a block buster but it was entertaining

    ReplyDelete
  38. I haven't seen either movie! I felt so out of the loop, but I'm glad I am not alone. I like nerdy boys too! Glad I married one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I know so many women that we so very excited to see the movie magic mike. I was curious at first but very glad that I didn't waste my time.
    Haha! I'm so happy I'm not the only what who thought Gilbert Blythe was super cute. :D
    Great list and really fun to read!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I've seen the Magic Mike movie and wasn't really impressed lol I like the nerdy boys as well!

    ReplyDelete
  41. hahahah. I have to confessI think Tyrion Lannister is very charming!

  42. Have you seen the new Anne of Green Gables series? "Anne with an E".. my daughter and I just watched it and it was very well done.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've never seen the movie nor heard of it. Lol. I find nerds very appealing.

    ReplyDelete
  44. How can you not find channing sexy? I think its his baby face. But, sexier than that is a man with a beard. Like a legit beard. MMMMM I love beards lol

    ReplyDelete
  45. I totally agree with you! That movie totally lacked a plot! Out of your list, I can definitely agree to your third choice! He's amazing and have you seen his interviews where he talks about his wife Emily Blunt and his two daughters? He's soooooo sweet!

  46. I honestly don't know anything about this movie. haha! But based on that gif, I will never want to watch one.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'll go for Tyrion Lannister. Not only he pays his debt, he is cunning and well connected.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I definitely agree. I'm not interested in buff men like that. I definitely prefer the nerd guys.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This was a nice read. I think anyone serving in the military is appealing too. It's not easy to serve, I should know. I want my men smart as well, they should be able to carry a good conversation, references to my fave shows, movies, or books are a huge plus!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am alot like you and strippers are a huge turn off. My first husband was in the military and I have to say a man in uniform is pretty sexy. However, after a deployment and cheating, I ended up moving back home. I went after a computer nerd the second time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm with you. My husband spent 20+ years in the military and that is by far more attractive than a lap dance!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Is it terrible that I haven't watched the movie? I love a man in uniform...thats why my hubby is perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  53. ha! Best thing I've read on the internet all day! I like how you started it off with a picture of your husband. And I second the geeks. I married one!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Those were some good choices, but im sure some women would disagree. It's sweet that you listed your husband on their and who doesn't love nerds.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This post is hilarious it gives me a big laugh today badly need it seriously. I enjoy it so much the pic #4 is that the guy on the Elf movie? When buddy says your an elf!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh yeah, those Magic Mike men are not for me either. And just like you, my husband is way more appealing than them. Ha!

  57. This is an interesting post indeed. I do find John Krasinski sex but I have to agree that men that are going to be there for you are more appealing to most women than the muscle men. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the nerds and Tyronian Lannister and John Krasinski and the Magic Mike Men. I don't discriminate guys that I think are hot based on what they do. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Totally love this post! I have never been a Magic Mike fan and have always love Tyrion Lannister and the actual actor's personality. Very interesting read, and enjoyed every bit of it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hehehe I'm with you on this! There's something quite appealing about Tyrion Lannister! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm with you, none of the guys from Magic Mike did it for me either, but Olivier Giroud did, prem footballer for Arsenal and super fit!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm with you I find nothing sexy about a man wearing a leopard thong lol A piece of bark is far sexier to me :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. First I love that your husband is first on the list of course :)
    I also Liked nerds and John from the office, we are similar I always like the good goofy guys. Bad guys do bad things after a while and the Magic Mike stuff just makes me giggle lol

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm totally laughing at the Tyrion Lannister thing. I do love me some Channing Tatum though- not the Magic Mike version but the version of who he is when he is talking about his love for his wife and kids.
