He freaked out dating

They would carry on, yelling, laughing, but when I would enter the room, they would go quiet as I’m a lady and I demand a certain kind of behavior.

We then lived with another two guys, this time in their early 30s, one of whom was gay but had a ‘beard’ as being openly gay is still taboo in this country (but that is a topic for another time) and one who had no social skills around women whatsoever. The problem is that women and men are not encouraged—on a large scale—to live together as friends in a share house or even as partners before marriage.

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.

Vociferous journalist Oray Egin told that, “whenever I see a Turkish cleric of Islam talking about sex in the public domain, I immediately assume that it is a personal issue for them.

One thing I have wanted to write about for a while in this column is the view of sex and dating in Turkey.

I have watched (mostly) foreign and (some) Turkish friends grapple with dating and all its highs and—more often—lows, and have become endlessly fascinated with the subject.

Although it is not something I have to partake in, it is a subject that fascinates me.

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.

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.

Almost 98% of the population is Muslim and has to follow stringent Islamic halal sex rules.
