Introducing the World-Famous Turkish Oil-Wrestlers - Part I

Everyone's heard about them, at least once or twice in their lives. The Turkish oil wrestlers. Some wrestle very harshly - well, after all it's a men's game. For some, they're disgusting, for others they're sexy and for all it's interesting anyway. For those who are new to this, you may not believe your eyes after seeing what these hunks (they're called 'Pehlivan's in Turkish) do especially (1) when they can't bring the opponent down, (2) how they comfort each other while resting after the fight.

There are also two videos at the end of the post just for your information (be sure to click the title to see all the photos and the videos or click the more link at the bottom of the second photo) and
