Slideshow from the annual oil wrestling tournament held in Turkey.
How fun is that!
I thought that kırkpınar (Yağlı Güreş was my own dirty little secret. :tongue: It's the most manly of sports, yet with the gayest appeal.
For those that don't know, kırkpınar is a national sport in Turkey, where there is a huge festival once a year and the end of June / beginning of July. It springs up from an old legend, where 2 soldiers wrestled (I think until total exhaustion, or possibly death) and is commemorated every year, near the same spot (the actual spot is supposedly in Greece). Picture unscripted WWE, with oil-covered men. OK, now picture them in tight leather capri pants. OK, now picture that one of the goals is to get your hand down the tightly-tied-at-the-waist-to-avoid-this-happening pants. To win, you have to either hold someone over your head, or down on their back, making them "see the stars" (face the sky in defeat), for three seconds. Since they're covered in oil, and wearing the also oiled leather pants, the only way to get a "grip", is to work your hand down the pants of the other guy, make a fist while it's in there (NO grabbing of anything is allowed, as it's "unmanly"), which effectively makes a handle with which to pic up the other guy, and throw him around.
Hmm, I'm breaking my own little rule. I didn't search, because now that I'm writing this, I think I may have done this little run-down a year or two ago. Either way, it's worth checking it out.
One could become severely addicted to viewing these men engaging in this sport.
For hours more of excitement visit google.com and then check the images.
Or, just drop by these festive sites: Turkish Wrestling Home Page!
Turkish Oil Wrestling / Kirkpinar Wrestling / Yagli Gures
Turkish oil wrestling -be sure to click on Legende up on the top bar and then watch as an entertaining story unfolds (provided of course that you keep clicking Next, otherwise the story stalls) Has sound too!
I totally forgot about that site. Yeah, and the "forty springs" that appeared, is where the name kırkpınar comes from... kırk - 40, pınar - spring
I've seen some videos on You Tube of the wrestling they do and its very homoerotic. They have there hands way down these guys pants and they have to be holding on to the others guys cock and balls very hard.
OK, one last note. Lawrence Grecco put out a limited edition book (not sure that it's still available) a few years ago. Lawrence Grecco Photography :: Turkish Wrestling At the time you had to be on a reserve list, and I got a copy when it was first released. Some very nice images in it, and you'll see a lot of them around the net when searching the subject.
Well, that's what we like to think, but as I wrote above, doing so is considered "unmanly", and can technically, get you thrown out, and really, in THAT crowd, I'm sure the last thing you want, on national TV, and it that hyper-macho setting, is to be called out, and thrown out, for copping a quick feel.
Seems to me having someone elses hands down my pants
would definitely get me hard as a rock and any stimulation would
likely result in the guy's hand getting a "turkish" bath! LOL
Sounds pretty horny to me!
Am I the only one who would react this way?
Afterwards I'd definitely feel more relaxed!
This had to be invented by a gay man.:tongue:
Turkish Oil Wrestling was featured in the 1964 movie Topkapi, one of favorite 60's movies. Topkapi (1964)
