la-bare-film.jpgBuff hunk Joe Manganiello, also known as Big Dick Richie in Magic Mike and Alcide Devereaux in the HBO hit series True Blood, explores male strippers in his directorial debut film.

La Bare is a "shocking, hilarious, and heartfelt" look at the work of real-life male strippers and how entertaining a crowd of ravenous, horny females is ten times harder than arousing a group of men.

In a statement provided to Vulture, Manganiello opines:

"I can't express to you how many times I've heard, 'We've seen it all.' 'There's nothing new.' 'Everything is recycled.' 'Nothing is shocking.' Blah, blah, blah... But I guess I just never really paid attention to the chatter until I made my first feature film.

"Soon after filming, there were the bands that had pulled their songs from the film despite the protests of their record label, the ban of our art/posters on bus stops and billboards due to it being too risqué... And then came the wait for the MPAA rating... And with that, the realization that I indeed had found something new, something fresh, something shocking to show the general public."

Watch the trailer for the new film below and as Joe says, let the conversations begin!
