  1. Whoah! Is that a foul or the spoils of war?

  2. Neither. It's how the game is played. I saw this a while back. Pretty hawt. Not much gayer than any other form of wrestling, IMO. XD

  3. Except that in oh, almost every other form of wrestling I've ever seen, you don't get to jerk off or fist your opponent!

    Seems that this is just the only legal way these guys can have a little man-sex without being beheaded or hanged due to offending their religion.

  4. @ Anonymous: It's Turkey, not Iran. It's a conservative country, but the government's secular.

  5. @Rich: Tell that to their GLBT community and see what you would find out. Its all lip service.

  6. If you get a copy of the Lawrence Greco book "Turkish Wrestling" you get a good look at this sport which is more right of passage and king of the hill than you think at first glance. There are stars like gladiators who get paid serious money to show up. The costume they wear also indicates whether you have a bit of cash or not since the leather britches are custom made and cost a fortune by poor man standards. Most of the contestants wear canvas version with rope at the waist. The day begins with a virtual bath in olive oil which not only serves to save your skin in the hot Turk sun but it makes you much less prone to tears and gashes since this is hand to hand combat. Yes it is legal to put your hands down your opponents pants and yes you can grab whatever you like but the issue is not to stroke one out it is to get your opponent off his feet. That is the only way you advance in this elimination match format. These guys keep wrestling until they lose. You need skill but you also need mountains of endurance and balls of steel since many matches are going to put them at risk through the day. Don't forget to, when you get thrown down, it's not on a padded mat covered floor. It's to the hard dirt baked in the Turk sun. The grass is the only thing there to break your fall. Better hope there isn't a little rock or stick for you to hit. If you can do that all day I believe you deserve a finger or two to massage your anus as a little bonus and if you get to bust a nut who the hell cares. You'd never know it inside all those oily britches.
