Ever heard of Turkish oil wresting?

Well apparently it’s Turkey’s national sport. The sexy beefcake wrestlers, known as pehlivans, lube themselves up with olive oil, and put on a hand-stitched lederhosen called a kisbet.

The wrestling match is won when the wrestler takes control of his opponent by putting his arm through his opponents kisbet. Lets just see what these sexy Turkish men look like when they douse themselves with olive oil! Enjoy!
