Magic Mike XXL is actually based on the experiences Tatum went through as a stripper. The setting of the film is identical to what Tatum underwent when he was invited to a stripping convention back in the 90s.
The star said he had hoped that the convention would be a collection of many strippers sharing their skills in an exhibition.
Contrary to his expectations, it was nothing different from his usual erotic dance performances except that they would perform to a huge crowd of about 2000 ladies. "I have no idea why it's called a convention," he said.
"The 'convention' was not strippers peddling stripper technology or anything like that. It was just a big show with 50 to 70 strippers and 2,000 to 3,000 women. It was crazy. They attacked me every night."
