    Hello everyone,

    I am new at this site, however I read out that some people have visited Istanbul alone but they could not find anything or see any sign of gay life in this metropol.
     
    I myself was there 3 week ago on a 3 days tour by sensationtours.com.tr

    It was unblievable... I met almost 20 young horny men and slept with at least ten of them. I will explain shortly.
     
    Many Europeans visit Istanbul because:
    1) Istanbul/Turkey is not far away geographically and there are now many cheap flights like EasyJet, Pegasus, Sunexpress
    2) Turkish men are orientally very good looking and masculine. Population is very young and dynamic.
    3) Turkey's legal structure is very gay friendly
    4) Turkey, especially Istanbul is a modern city with a mx of many Western and Eastern features.
    5) Turkey is not expensive
     
    Most important of all, they visit Istanbul because of:
     
    1) Its deep historical heritage from Hellenistic times to Byzantine and Ottoman
    2) Istanbul's unique location on two continents: Asia and Europe
    3) Turkish men who love having sex (eg: strong like a Turk)

    I myself having visited Istanbul for the first time in my life can admit that Istanbul is a gay paradise with its crazy gay night clubs, Hammams, and especially its horny handsome men. Population is so young and dynamic (almost everyone under the age of 35). Turkish men seemed to me very comfortable in same sex relationships. They would simply but still intimately do it if they like your personality, sense of humour and outlook. Money for sex is not wide spread.

    Istanbul with its location on two continents, its rich history is the official European Capital for Culture in 2010 and soon will surely become the capital of gay fun in Europe and Middle East.

    Lots of love and Happy New Year to you all.

    James

    Turkey's legal structure is gay-friendly? icon_confused.gif I've never heard/read/seen anything like that before. If the EU was telling Turkey to clean up their women's rights problems before being considered for entrance, how can their gay rights issues be anywhere near friendly?

    Maybe that sounds a bit abrasive but I'm actually curious as to what you mean. I think Turkey looks like an amazing country and I'd love to visit, but not because it's a gay-friendly place.

    As l see you were there 3 days? Well visiting as a Tourist is very very different from living there l can tell you from my experience.
    The historical sights are really something but the Gay life is not so easy as you make it!

    Well, I've heard the opposite about Turkey. I will quote from a friend who went there recently: "Istanbul is a traditional Muslim country where women are largely absent or silent and where men are a little aggressive and certainly not gay. It is all hidden. And when I went to the gay disco it was full of what I call weekend prostitutes - guys who lead ordinary lives until they think they can earn money and suddenly turn to renting. And, to be honest, the guys who were at the gay places were not as handsome as the guys on the streets - I particularly liked the Kurdish guys, but they were only really available to buy. And the streets were full of men trying to get money out of me - I wanted to have a t-shirt printed saying, "I do not want to buy a carpet!"

    I was in Turkey a while back
    and it was typical of a repressed religious society
    where sexuality - especially homosexuality is kept under cover

    Not that there isn't any
    as a matter of fact when you repress something it usually shows up
    in unexpected places

    Here is a time worn sport that remains in Turkey
    and it Reeks of homoeroticism

    Take a look icon_cool.gif

    One thing you need to know ...

    Do not say hello to people on the Street
    Istanbul esp near the tourist attractions is FULL of people trying to sell things
    Just a hello means .... I'm willing to buy something

    That goes for all of the developing world. When they attack, just keep saying 'no'. Or "no English" whichever works faster.

    I was in Istanbul last April and May. The gay clubs were fun and the people were friendly. There was a park across the street from hotel, at Taxim, that I would go to read at, and I discovered quickly that it is a cruisy park with some very attractive guys of all ages. If anything I would say that Istanbul was very gay friendly but I wouldn't go around flaunting it, like anywhere else.

    Do not talk to anyone on the street who approches you even if they are dressed in a suit and tie. I was hit up at least 5 times in the first 1/2 hour of leaving my hotel room on one sort of scam or another. Also, be carefull of the shoe shine guys. They pretend to drop an item from thier shoe shine kit, and when you pick it up to give it to them you can't get rid of them. I fell for it once, but saw it happen several times during my stay.

    All in all I would recomend Istanbul to any friend who wants a little culture and history combined with a fun gay nightlife.

    Istanbul Istanbul Istanbul cradle of unforgetable moments,

    If you compare Istanbul to another city first plus of Istanbul is ''Men are very handsome and very strong, and more ...

    Istanbul is a really one of the gayest city I have ever been.. I was born in Netherland and I lived many years in Amsterdam .... everybody says Amsterdam is the Capital of European Gay Life , do you want to know my thoughts just fuck it.. If you would be in that club where I met with ''Tarkan'' you could understand what I mean......

    Istanbul have different faces but If you go there by true travel agency they take you to right places at the right time and so you have the chance of the catch real Gay Life as you never seen before.. There are alot of pushers for everything thats correct but is this important point to not go somewhere? Why do you go there for, having rest or for a old man holiday? If you want to go somewhere to have real gay fun I reccomment Istanbul go and have some fuck and look will you be able to walk next day?...

    Ps: Be carefull dont fall in love becuse turkish men are very well as a hard fucker and lover but they are not very comfortable for a long relationship because nights are fast and they are reallly handsome so be sure he will find another one in a few days and forget you totally....

    Stay Happy Live Longer Happy New Year
