Trivia

Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer allegedly did not get along on set.
In the scene where Dallas (Matthew McConaughey) finally strips, there is a point where he rolls away from all of the women holding his crotch. This is because the extras got a little bit too excited and accidentally ripped his g-string. Instead of stopping the dance, he just incorporated it in.
The film is loosely based on Channing Tatum's experiences as a male exotic dancer before hitting it big as a movie star.
To keep their physique, Joe Manganiello and Channing Tatum would lift weights in the parking lot between takes.
The character of Tarzan, portrayed by Kevin Nash, wears a knee brace during his routine and goes with the idea that stripping is all his character knows and is doing it past his prime. This wasn't in the script but came about when Nash showed up on set with the brace on and explained that he wouldn't be able to do the routine properly unless he wore it. Kevin Nash is a professional wrestler with a history of knee problems.
The role of Brooke was offered to Jessica Biel but she declined.
Channing Tatum originally wanted Nicolas Winding Refn to direct the film but Refn had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts with Only God Forgives (2013).
Cuban actor William Levy was offered a role but declined.
Aside from music at the parties and clubs, there is no score in the film except for during the boat ride to the 4th of July sandbar party when Cloud Contol's Just For Now plays.
Director Joe Johnston can be seen as one of Mike's phone contacts.
