Oil wrestling is the hottest sport in Turkey.
In the United States, two lubed men mounting each other in a park would probably be perceived as gay. Luckily, that’s not the case in some other countries. In Turkey, for example, muscular men often lube up and grapple in the grass while thrusting their hands inside their partner’s leather trousers.
Although to the untrained eye it may look strange; it’s actually a sport known as oil wrestling or grease wrestling (Yagli Gures in Turkish). Oil wrestling, Turkey’s national sport, is a combat sport in which men douce their bodies in olive oil and then attempt to mount and pin their opponents, there’s no penalty for holding.
