Most homo-erotic sport of all time:Turkish Oil Wrestling
Oil wrestling (Turkish:yağlı güreş), also called grease wrestling,
is the Turkish national sport. It is so called because the wrestlers
douse themselves with olive oil. The olive oil is applied to every inch
of the body and is designed to prevent your opponent getting any sort of
grip as you grapple.
To win, you need to flip your opponent on to his
back. The wrestlers, known as pehlivan (meaning “hero” or “champion”)
wear a type of hand-stitched lederhosen called a “kispet” (, which is
traditionally made of water buffalo hide, and most recently has been
made of calfskin.
No wonder why the gays are so into this sport, greased masculine men
are wrestling of course. But infact, oil-wrestling has nothing to do
with “gay culture” whatsoever. Turkish people have been usually
remembered during thousands of years as a warrior nation on the lands
which they conquered.
The preparations for the war of Turkish army were
mainly sports and wrestling. The origin of the Turkish wrestling is
based on the era when the Hun Empire was established. At that time the
wrestling was organized as “Karakucak”. After the Ottoman Empire passed
to Rumelia, it started to be organized as greased wrestling without
losing its self and soul and became an extant tradition.
Allthough, oil wrestling is not welcomed to be associated with the
gay culture, it definetly attract gay audience. Especially the “bear
lovers” come to Turkey for Kırkpınar Oil Wrestling. Traditionally, the
Kirkpinar Wrestling is organized at the last week of June each year in
Edirne (Northwest of Turkey).
The majority of these Turkish oil wrestlers are definitely heterosexual.
The biggest mistake any Gay tourist can make is to assume these oil
wrestlers are gay and make a move on them. It is a recipe to get punched
in the face or worst, so please respect these men and do not make
In Turkey, and much of the Middle East, men have grown up
being very physically close to each other (due to the cultural
separation of the sexes), but that does not mean they are gay or open to
gay contact. Always remember the golden rule to be safe in Turkey if
you are gay: Unless they make a move and initiate a gay encounter, do
NOT assume they are gay, and do NOT make the first move.
