If you follow Roxane Gay on Twitter, you should have seen her excited tweets about Magic Mike XXL. Besides her many tweets, Gay also penned a hilarious recap of the movie for The Toast.

If you are a human with access to the internet, you are probably aware that Magic Mike premiered this weekend. You are probably also aware that it involved mostly naked men, several of whom are very, very good-looking, and one of whom is a very excellent dancer. But here's the thing--did you also know that there's a thing called pornography? Because that exists, too, and if you're into naked dudes, you should probably just watch that instead.
