Magic Mike, in the words of New York's David Edelstein, is Steven Soderbergh's "latest parable of how capitalism transforms sex into a soulless commodity." It is also the movie in which Channing Tatum strips. He's not the only one getting naked: Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello — everyone loses their clothes, repeatedly, throughout the movie. This is the point. And so to help you truly understand Magic Mike, to really boil the film down to its essence, Vulture tallied all the various instances of nudity and made some charts. Thongs! Math! It's all waiting for you below.

And the totals:

Bare Chests: 59
Bare Asses: 3
Bare Breasts: 4 (two each from Olivia Munn and Mircea Monroe)
Thongs: 14
Penis Pump Money Shots: 1
Shadow Money Shots: 1
Assless Chaps: 1 (McConaughey)
Marilyn Monroe dresses: 1 (Tatum)
