Dating a turkish man
He justified watching and sharing the video by saying this: “This is not private but public, because he was not with his wife. We cannot view adulterers as victims.” The question begets why the Turkish government is so obsessed with sex.
I’m trying to convince a single friend who has lived in Turkey for two years to let me document her hilarious (and sometimes scary) Tinder adventures, which include one man calling her a “prostitute” after she told him she is posing nude for an artist. In terms of sexual politics, Turks veer much closer to the ‘conservative’ dial than the ‘liberal’ one.When I would be cooking, he would come and stand next to me and just stare. Universities too have mostly same-sex housing for students, and women can only sit next to another man on intercity buses or trains if he is her partner.This means that women and men don’t interact in all aspects of the word growing up and then, naturally, have skewed outlooks on dating and sex.Men see women as possessions and as many women grow up being treated like princesses, they develop unrealistic expectations of men.And as women are told that ‘sleeping around’ is sinful, they either don’t do it, do it in secret, or shame women who are more sexually liberal than them.A Turkish male friend once told me that one night stands are not really a thing, and especially not for women (no big surprise there).
Another Turkish male friend told me that although men and women can be friends, growing up in large mixed-sex friendships groups is a lot less common than in other parts of the world.
Turkish Airlines has previously gotten into hot water for banning red cosmetics to be worn by stewardesses as this “impairs the visual integrity of the intended look” (read: is too sexy).
A few months ago, as reported in , the Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç was up in arms about what he termed “moral corruption.” Besides making such ridiculous statements as “women shouldn’t talk about unnecessary things on the phone,” he also claimed that TV shows have turned youth into “sex addicts,” and encouraged men to not be “womanizers” and be more “chaste.” Late last year, Erdoğan went on record about an opposition leader’s affair, which was caught on tape.
It could be out of either envy or obsession caused by self-suppression.
Because they can’t openly express their own sexual problems or desires, they meddle in other people’s lives and probably live vicariously through them.
Some of the rules include showering after intercourse, no sex during menstruation, and that a man must have sex with his wife at least once every four months (this is considered to be a wife’s conjugal right).
