Turkish Baths...for HeyJoe



A person taking a Turkish bath first relaxes in a room (known as the warm room) that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before splashing themselves with cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage, bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.


Notice that in both of these pictures there are men scrubbing the women. THAT is why I don't go to the Turkish Baths. Well, that and the nakedness. I put "clean and decent" pictures on the blog. Believe me...I've seen some nakedness, and I want no part of it.

I firmly believe in the truth of the old saw: "Why is it those who most flaunt their naked bodies are those we'd least desire to observe naked?"

actually, in the "real" women hamams, there are no men... the ones that have men scrubbing women are for the westerners --who tend to be loose;) after all, hamams were a communal meeting place for the ottoman women, who were not supposed uncover their head before other men, let alone their bodies. that would literally cause murder.
that said, i don't think you'd enjoy the big ladies that scrub you in the women baths. they only wear underpants (normally,other women wear bathing suit), well. you get the picture: old, fat and naked.. it's scary enough for me not to go again:)

Natalie said...

derya - girl, you made me laugh. folks...this comment is straight from a turk! and even she is scared to go. you can bet i'm not getting anywhere near the place!

As Drew Carey said, "If you don't have a good body, cover it the eff up."

That being said, the Turkish bath looks like some kind of bizarre game of "half naked four-square twister" administered by a dude in a kilt.

So those are my choices, half naked guy in a kilt or fat, nearly naked ugly women?

I'll stick to porn.

Don't delete this.

And what the hell is kilt-boy pulling out of suds-boy; his lower intestine?

Gina said...

I think just walking through a car-wash would have the same effect.

Natalie said...

witty - that is rare! amazing.

heyjoe - you crack me up! so kilt-boy has a hand towel like thing. he gets it all sudsy and then squeezes the suds onto the bather. that is what he is doing. it is not actually a body part of suds-boy, but let me tell you that visual image will forever be stuck with me now. and i laughed so hard last night that i almost wet my pants thinking about it. so thanks.

gina - i agree. i think i would rather be slapped by the car wash parts than by a half-naked man or woman.
