I am astonished when I read reports about Turkey as an Turkish Business Man. These are mostly true. Turkey actually is a wonderful country. I have many foreigners friends and all of them were fall in love with Turkey but none of them didn't try prostitude sex in Turkey. If you wish to have a affar in Istanbul I strongly suggest that just try to flirt normal Turkish girls. Most of them are admirer of foreigners. I was in many countries and I tried to have sex in many countries and I was cheated many countries. There is a sex industry in the world as well as an indusrty to cheat the males looking for sex in ewery country. You gentlemen tell me your city I will tell similar experience to you from your city. I don't want to say Turkish people is innocent but dont forget you push to botton first looking for sex going to commisioners. Try Turkey normal way you will have only normal problems but higher fun. Thx

Dear Pussy lover.
Me and my friend were in turkey for the business trip in march 2008, and from the moment we reached Istanbul airport, we were cheated by airport people, I have been traveling so many countries for business and also for entertainment, but I have never found such mentally criminal people and thugs, any where in the world, from taxi driver to shop keeper from bars to night club or anywhere, even govt. offices, all will try to cheat you.
In the airport we bought mobile sim, they cheated us, inside the airport we exchange money they cheated us, outside the airport the taxi driver he cheated us.
When reach hotel near hotel gate there was a guy trying to sell some watches and trying to cheat us. when I want to buy mobile charger which is around $3 to $5 in any country but they charge us $15. All the taxi drivers will always choose wrong road to go anywhere. 15 min drive they will make it 30 to 40 min just to charge extra money.
In the market suddenly you will notice somebody is following you and will try to talk to you and if they found you are interested in talking then they will ask you if you want any girl, and one time we said yes we want then he bring us to a bar where two Russian whore were bring to sit with us and immediately the waiter bring 2 ladies drink without asking us. and then later asked us what we will bring, we ordered normal beer. Suddenly I notices the person who bring us to this bar he was talking slowly something with the bar manager.
Then I realized something is happening, so I just ask the waiter how much is one drink, because they did not bring any menu card or books for the snacks. then he said not expensive,by that time the ladies finished their drinks in one sip and the waiter brings another 2 ladies drinks immediately. then I said what is going on? By now I was aware that we were already cheated and now we will be in trouble. I asked the manager to bring the bill, then he bring the bill of 430 Lira which is equal to US$400/- just imagine we did not even touch those women (they are not girls) very old women around 30 to 35 years of age. We know that we were already ripped off and we can't do any thing now, so just gave them the amount in bill and went out from that place and the guy who bring us to that place was disappeared.
Then we wanted to go another city for business purpose and went to travel agency and after buying ticket requested them to book 2 rooms in 4 star hotel they showed us in the computer very nice hotel and beautiful rooms and also charged us $160/night each room but when we were there we found that hotel was not even 3 star.
These are only few of the so many cheating that we were faced during one weak stay in turkey.
So please stay away of this fucking country, if you see properly to all the local people's face, you will find 90% of the peoples face looks like criminal, no politeness in their face, they think they are Europeans, but I think they are shits of Europeans. (Review # 24122)

I visited Istanbul for the 2nd time in June of 2008.
Let me tell you, I don't just say I've been everywhere, I actually have visited over 90 countries.
Turkey and in particular Istanbul is filled with dishonest, thieves who will attempt to cheat you at every opportunity.
From cabbies, to restaurants, cafes, merchants, Hammam operators and just about anyone else who notices that you are not a local.
There was a man here on WSG who complained that Turkey should be categorized under Europe. Well that is exactly part of the problem. Turks think they're European and the high prices here are even higher than Europe but one look at the streets, the people and the infrastructure and most importantly the mentality of the people will quickly tell you this a one messed up middle eastern country which nothing more than a wanna be Europe, which it never will be.
Taxis and everything else is very very expensive. 30 dollars for typical rides. Everyone asks for Euro, and that is not even the currency of the country. Cars have European Union format license plates but they are not even admitted into the union yet and they never should be. The sad part is, if these people tried to be honest and give people a fair shake they would actually make more money, but alas the criminal mind is an inferior mind.
As for women, the bars in Taxim are nothing more than brutal clip joints run by thieves. I can see how Russian girls would fit into these picture as Russians notoriously have no trouble with a life of crime.
As for the famous local whorehouse called (Genelev), it is true that it exist and it is true that the price is 30 liras for full service, however there is cop at the door, checking Id's and if you are not a Turkish citizen, you are rudely turned away. The cheap local whorehouse is strictly for Turks only. There is another cheap whorehouse across the street from Genel Ev, but the same story, Id's are checked and non Turks are absolutely not welcomed.
I am disgusted with this terrible country filled with thieves. Not being able to enter local whorehouse was the last straw.
I have been faithfully using WSG for a long time and its an excellent and irreplaceable source. It has led me to the right path to women in cities all over the world, so I felt I owed it to the readers to warm them about this terrible place called Turkey. (Review # 24104)

Guys, Sorry to read the reviews but I guess you are all bunch of amateurs in this scene. I am Turkish and have been living and traveling in this part of the world for a long time. Istanbul has great choice of girls. Don't be pathetic to talk about these rip off nightclub experiences. They exist in every country. When you see the guys outside chasing you, you should understand that you should only go there with a Turkish friend, unless you are Van Damme or Smith. (Review # 20639)
The best girls as is the case in the world is from Russia and Ukraine. The best ones are of course from high class mamas, whose phones cannot be given here, and who don’t answer calls unless they know your number. Incredible models come here. They charge anywhere from 200 - 1000 Euros depending on their beauty and professionalism.
Some Turkish models also work the same way, but going up to 5000 USD if they are famous. If there is a wish there is a way. Stay in 5 star Hotels, ask concierge or the doorman (politely and quietly). Does it once, pay more, but do something you should remember. You can get lucky in Bacardi, but going all the way, the hassle, especially if you don’t know the people, why bother? Or just go to Reina, Sortie, Anjelique, Supper Club and try your chances with the girls in the bar. Or even better just go to Kiev, Minsk or Moscow and see what the world is all about.. Good luck, Someone who has been there, done that. And still doing it.

I read all the tips below when staying at the Hilton downtown Izmir today, and decided to try asking around outside the hotel. First I asked a few taxi drivers, but they were not very helpful. Then I noticed an old "shoeshine boy" in a corner and asked him. "yes yes, I can arrange girl". (Review # 20245)
He promised me a nice Turkish girl and I gave him a note with my room number and 40 Turkish lire (30$), after which I walked up to my room again. After 30 minutes there was a knock on my door! Guess what, there was indeed a nice looking slim young Turkish girl standing there with a smile. I gave her 100 Euro and she gave me an hour of full service, oral vaginal and anal. Very good indeed! Maybe I was just lucky.

God bless you, guys, for the information provided. I just arrived to Istanbul today, July 10th, 2007. Before heading out on the town I read these postings, which were so true!!! I took off from my hotel, the Hyatt in Taksim; within 5 minutes walk I spot my first assailant. A shady looking dude who sees me and identifies me as tourist. I was wearing shorts, need to say more? The only men wearing shorts in Istanbul (mind off the 90F 30C weather) are foreigners. This is about 1:30 AM. My assailant crosses the street. I see him out of the corner of my eye and watch for his shadow approaching. Not that I mind a physical fight, in fact I kind of would like to beat someone's ass here in this motherfucker place, but knives are difficult to fight, unless you are karate kid. I cross the street to identify the predator. He follows me. (Review # 20092)
One minute later he passes by and says "not Turkish?" I responded "fuck off". I was jaded after having read these postings just minutes before. The guy ignores the rejection and proceeds with the hook: any girl 50 Euros a night, just come with me to Playhouse. Yeah right. I asked him if he speaks English. Of course, he replies. I say "then fuck off". I fended off a few predators that way. Believe me, in the course of an hour walking around I encountered about 7. Then I met Jan. The dude asks me for a light, I say no. He goes on and starts walking alongside in a non-threatening way and starts telling me about himself, how is from the South of Turkey, half Kurdish, bla bla bla and he is visiting. Yeah right. He tells me about his father and how life is short and how he lost him. I immediately identified this as a class one predator.
I let him go on out of curiosity see how he operated. We keep walking and he tells me there are a few good bars around the corner. I follow him. He stops at a traditional music open air pub with some dudes playing good Kurdish music. He asks me if we should have a beer here. I say yes and we sit down. He orders and to my amazement pays, 10 lira (about 6 USD) for the 2 beers. I finish my beer and ask him if he wants another one. He declines. I order one for me. I smoke his cigarettes. Life is good. I have made a friend. I finish and ask again but he says we should go somewhere else.
He takes me out of the circuit into one of the Russian girls bars that you guys forewarned all of us about. I had bitten the hook, or so he thought. He had invested 3 USD on me, and a few cigarettes, and his investment was about to pay off. Upon seeing the scene (all these bars are the same, about a dozen hot and not so hot Russian whores and a boring dancing girl) I tell him I do not like it. He insists. I ask him how much for a beer. He says only 20 Lira (about 15 USD) each. I say "fuck it", and I get out.
At this point, my Turkish-Kurdish friend makes a cell phone call and to my amazement he speaks in Russian. Oh well, I happen to speak some Russian, after 4 years of taking it in college and hear him tell his friend "I am telling you, I tried, we are going to the one in the corner". He hangs up and tells me there is one where he knows the people and is not so expensive. Just around the corner from the last one. I laugh to myself and tell him it is late and I got to go. He insists and then tells me he is short of cash and if I can "lend" him 50 Lira, which then went down to 20. I said politely "no". When he insisted again, I put on my best Russian accent, looked at him in the eye and said in Russian " Dude, I am not giving you any fucking money". He just stared blankly at me as I left. Thanks again, guys...

Beware of cheats or rather thugs I was in Istanbul in May a smart young man starting talking to me very pleasantly offering to show me a good Pakistani restaurant nearby. Then he said he had a cafe with nice Russian girls only USD 30 for 23 hours and USD 50 with room. I got interested to see the place so I could go there later. He walked me thru small streets to a small bar mostly local people sitting there with some girls. (Review # 19452)
I just wanted to know the place but he sat on a table to introduce me to some girls. 2 Girls came average 56/10. He asked me for drink I refused and asked for water he got a soft drink for himself and the 2 girls were served a small glass of some drink. Then he introduced me to another girl she asked if she can order a drink (none of the earlier served drinks were asked from me) I said ok. Then I wanted to leave. He said I had to pay the check and he took me to another table where the hotel manager / bouncer joined in. They presented to me a bill for YTL 850 (US$ 700)! They showed me some printed menu card (printed only for such catches like me) listing YTL 250 for 70 cl Champaign bottle I protested I was here only to see the girls which they said charged USD 30 also I did not order any drinks for any one except one girl and water for myself.
Moreover even if I had to pay 1 bottle 70 cl was more than enough to cover all 3 small glasses. They said “No” separate bottle was opened for each glass (I never saw any separate bottle being opened). Well I said I did not have any money except YTL 300 they pushed me and I had to draw all Turkish money from my wallet it was YTL 295. they asked me to show them my wallet and promised that if I did not have any more Turkish money they will let me go.
Well I had few hundred dollars in my wallet but no Turkish money while they assured. They are only looking for Turkish money and no other I could not trust them so I resisted showing my wallet.
After much haggling they settled for YTL 350 (250 for 1 bottle champagne and 100 for soft drink and glass of water). When I took out my wallet they snatched it and took US$ 200 in addition to YTL 295 already with them. I just left and walked out Lesson sur do not trust anyone but more important as soon as you enter any pub or bar or any such place first insist to see the menu card!!

Dear Fellow Mongers:
Despite reading the guide I did fall in the Istanbul trap. I was lured by one of the touts to a small bar in Taskin area and after a drink and two drinks for the girls. I was given a bill for 590 YTL. Gave the big bouncer everything I had 290 YTL and ran since he wanted me to actually go to the ATM machine and take some more money out.
Guys, keep your dicks in your pants when in fu--ked up Istanbul. Was in Frankfurt before I got here and had gone to the palace. That is heaven on earth and safe and nice. Had 3 girls in 3 hours for a total of 225 Euro and they were 9s and 10s, seriously one German, one Czech, and one Romanian.
The German, Mandy was definitely a 10 in looks, body and service. So, guys, be very careful in Istanbul. I thought I was always careful, but when your little brother starts thinking, nothing matters. (Review # 18528)

Hi Guys! I am a Turkish citizen residing in Izmir, Turkey. I love traveling around the world and having benefited from the comments in this site in places like Czech Republic, Ukraine and Thailand. I guess I owe a guide to the travelers to my country from the eyes of a citizen.
First of all, I regret to see that Turkey is listed amongst the other Arabic Middle East countries. We are geographically and culturally (particularly west part) a European country. Anyway, you will decide when you visit here.
General Info about having fun, nightlife and sex anywhere in Turkey: For an American or a North European Turkish, it is a cheap paradise in general if you act carefully. Don't bother using public transportation... just take a taxi unless your way is too long. Make sure the driver activates the taxi-meter so that he won't be able to fool you.
Food, transportation, textiles, accomandation. etc. are quite cheap but not the night life. In Istanbul you will find several best clubs in Europe but the entrance fees and drinks are not cheap at all. You pay around 20 Euros for getting in and 10 Euros for a drink in a high quality local bar. I am 30 years old and I have never needed to go to a strip club in Turkey and I have heard many stories like getting ripped. So especially if you look like a foreigner from 50 meters, beware of the strip clubs!
But don't worry, you will find what you're looking for easily.
1) Easiest and Cheapest Sex: Kerane --- is the Turkish word for whore house or red light district. You won't have your best sex ever but if you don't wanna go back without scoring, it's worth a try. There are Keranes in every city in Turkey. Just tell a taxi driver and he'll take you there. You won't pay more than US$30 for the most beautiful girl with full service there. Kerane is in Karakoy in Istanbul, in Tepecik in Izmir. It costs at most 10 Liras (5 Euros) from centrum in Izmir.
2) Massage Parlours in Hotels: I don't know any of these in Istanbul but in Izmir, you can visit Hotel Ismira (right accross Hilton) or Hotel Marla all located in the centrum. They are clean 3 - 4 star hotels, just step in and ask for the massage room. Don't be shy, you're just there for having a massage for health and everyone pretends as if they don't know what's really happenning there! :)) A relaxing massage with a blow job at the end will not cost you more than 50 Euros. If you behave nice to the girl, you can go further with her. These are the 2 hotels I know but there are surely more, don't hesitate to ask a taxi driver or the receptionist of your hotel.
3) East European Call Girls directed by pimpers: These are my favorites. I think they are the most beautiful and hottest girls in the globe. You will definitely find some goergous ones in night clubs like Broadway or some others but as I said, why go there and spend 500 Euros in one night? The correct way is again to ask your receptionist (if you treat him well he will become your best friend!) Or if you're staying in a very good hotel like Hilton and you can't ask this, there's a taxi driver would love to help you. They surely have contacts with the correct pimpers. But never ever go to a strip club even if the taxi driver offers you so. Tell him you want the girl to your room. If the girl that comes does not attract you, send her back and ask for another one. You will pay around 100 - 150 Euros for 2-3 hours but believe me it's worth it!
4) Try your chance on the streets. In fact this should be the last option. If you're so shy to ask the receptionist or taxi driver, you can try to find your love of the night from street hookers. But be careful with 2 things: Don't walk alone in dark streets at late night. And the second thing, beware of the transsexuals. I would say 50% of the street hookers are transsexuals in Izmir streets. Talk to her even though her English is so poor and try to figure if she's a real girl or not from her voice. You will find most of them in Alsancak Area in walking distance to Hilton. Their price would be 50 Euros at most. You will understand easily that she's a hooker from her cloth, and all the cars are stopping for her.
5) The best and the most joyful way: Forget paying for sex and try to pick a local girl. This is also mentioned in some other reports. Especially in Izmir, you will find the most beautiful, free minded and multi-lingual girls. You will hardly believe that you're in a Muslim country. If you can be distinguished from your look as foreigner and if you're blonde with colorful eyes, you will have a great chance of catching a one nite stand from a local bar. These bars are again all located in Alsancak area where your hotel most probably be. Start walking on the seaside... have a look at the pubs (there around 50 pubs in just a 300 meter street), get into one of them that attracts you. They all have standard menus so you won't get ripped.
If you feel like a girl is staring and smiling at you, don't be shy and act the same. At the end either she will make the first step or you. Just be careful if the girl is with a boy next to him. This could be her boyfriend or brother or someone else who feels like he's the guard of her.
On the seaside I can recommend you pubs like Sirena, Lala, Venezia, Fýstýk, Play, and Sunset. Just very near to these pubs ask for Kýbrýs Sehitleri Street. This area is the shopping center in the day time and there are lots of bars and discos at night. There is a variety of choices for every music taste. You can go to Kybele, Bios, Kemancý for live soft rock, Club 33, Rush or Velox for dance music. The tactic is the same everywhere: stare at her eyes, catch her smile and talk to her! Believe me you won't regret!
Last Hints: From June to September it's incredibely hot in Izmir and you will hardly find action if you stay here in the weekend. So rent a car or take a bus and go to Cesme (the summer resort). It's just 1 hour from Izmir on the highway. Believe me, the night life is not less than Ibiza but you won't find sex with money there. But you will definitely have fun. Kusadasi is another alternative which is also 1 hour away for weekends in the summer time. There you will have more chance to find sex with money (especially Russians).
So I hope I am able to help you in your journey to Izmir. Have fun!

I was in Istanbul again last week. Was there in February and got a very gorgeous girl from Bacardi and thought I would go back there again to try my luck. The girls in Bacardi was not good anymore. By the way, I realized now that Bacardi have double standard where the drinks and fruits cost 30 Ytl and the drink for the girl is 20 Ytl for local Turkmen but for visitors from other countries, it jumped to 50 Ytl per drink for the girl. If you bring a girl with you, the bouncer at the door will insist on 20 Ytl tips while if you are a Turkmen, you are only oblige to pay 10 Ytl. There you go guys! Your favorite club's double standard. I was there on my first night and did not get anyone, so I went to Seranda and see no one.
Then went to Balance Disco in Altin Ishik hotel right on the corner from Seranda. Saw this blonde girl with big tits giving me a serious stare from the dance floor. I went up to her and she told me her name is Karina from Moldovia. We agreed on US$100 and the room was 70 Ytl (US $50). Went up to the room and when she took off her clothes, her 36 DD turned into a B cup! It's all the padding on the tube top she's wearing. She gave me BJ with condom but her vagina smells so I was quite turned off five minutes into it. I force myself to finish quick and get the hell out of there. See my other posting on the night when I get a girl from Seranda whose name was Lisa from Moldovia, which turned into the rip off experience.
By the way, I went to all the places the posters of this board recommended and spent some serious entrance and drink fees to check out the scenes (Bacardi, Seranda, Balance, Gold Can, Big Pub, Irmak Restaurant). I must say that Bacardi have the best quality girls but their girls are not even that good anymore compare to what it was over three years ago. I met a regular there and he told me all the hot model-looking girls, give their numbers to their regular clients and stop going to Bacardi and just work through phones and word of mouth referral from their regular clients to land new clients. Plus there is one guy who is a host at Bacardi, he is tall but hunch over and look like Elliot Gould, the actor. He was nice to me at the beginning and try to get girls to come sit with me but I declined and told him that I did not see anyone I like just yet. Half an hour into it, he got mad and screamed at me in Turkish to get me out of the table he was watching over. I was ready to leave but another host ran over and took me and sit me on another table far away from the stage. Nice treatment to the customers, guys!
Anyway, by 4 AM I did take one girl from Ukraine back to my hotel at the Hilton, which by the way have no problem with girls going to your room. We agreed on US$150 and a cab fee back for her for 2 sex. But she left after we did it once which I did not push for the second time because it was already close to 5 AM and I felt like sleeping by then. I went to Bacardi for 3 nights straight and only bring girl home once because I was horny and did not want to waste my nice hotel room. But the truth is, the girls there are not that hot anymore. In conclusion, I would rather be in London, Amsterdam, or Montreal and pay more to get better quality girls who provide much more liberal services and avoid all the hassle, legworks and bad treatments than to go back to Istanbul again and deal with Bacardi.
I was also at Irmak but in the restaurant section, which is in the middle of the alley. A fellow monger warn me never to go to the first club, which was upstairs and the one next to the restaurant because they really fuck with the tourist there and jacked up the drink price up to obscene amount (US$500 for a champagne drink with a girl). Be careful guys! But if you go to Irmak restaurant, which actually have very good food, there are girls sitting around giving you the look, which you can invite over to your table and negotiate the price with. It was a bit unnerving because it's brightly lit there but at the same time, you see the merchandise you are buying very clearly. My friend told me never to pay more than US$100 if you get someone from Irmak. But I was not that into the girl so I just ate dinner there and did not get anyone. By the way, be careful and mind yourself while you are in there because the place is run by Russian mob. You can feel the vibe soon as you walked in there.

There's a good amount of street action going on in Alsanjak but after 11:30 or so, you need to be careful because it turns into all TV's. Before that though you can pick up a girl for about US$50 - 60 and then they want to go to one of several houses in the area that are set up for them. I did that once and did not like it. After about 10 minutes in the room, they started beating on the door and the girl told me to hurry. Next time I picked one up, she agreed to go to a hotel but a small hole in the wall... one where it was another $20 for the room. Well worth it because I got an hour out of her for $60 and then threw in another $20 because she treated me good... so $100 total.
The streets to find them runs in front of the World Park. They like to hang out near the bus stop on the road between the McDonald's Circle and the World Park Fountain. You can tell which ones they are because they will scope you out hard when you drive by and all you have to do is pull over and they will come up to the car. They don't always speak English so it is a good idea to just write down what you will pay. Everything else can be worked out with body language :)
If you don't feel like driving around, then the bar across from Hilton called "Scavengers" has some Russian action working the bar occasionally that will cost you $100 and you have to be staying at the Hilton.

Hi everybody. Istanbul is like every other big city. If you don't want to et ripped off, you have to play but the rules. For example, if you go to grand bazaar, negotiate. Learn a few Turkish words and try to look familiar with Turkey, this should help a lot. When you get into a taxi, ask them to turn on the meter.
Most taxi drivers are friendly, if you ask them to take you around like a tour guide and help you get into hotels, bars, etc for not so much of a money, they might accept. I haven't been to bacardi and I did not heard about it but Seranda is pretty good.
Entrance with a drink is 30ytl (about 20$). The girls are dancing on the dance floor, make your pick and take them out. It will be about 70YTL(hotel) + 150YTL (girl) + about 50YTL for Seranda will be around 270YTL ($180) You can get girls cheaper if you can find a trustworthy pezevenk (to find a trustworthy one, your chances are very very slim but maybe a friend or a driver or a bellboy for a 10$ tip may help you) without paying to the club.
I know a pezevenk and I get girls for $80-90. But I am a returning customer. I used to pay about $100 in the early days.
If anyone calls you and tells you if you want to find girls, do not have with them. When you o with them they take you to a club and it is a rip off. You might even get your butt kicked so watch out. You can contact with me if you need any help in Istanbul. (Review # 15265)

Went to Bacardi last night and it definetely ıs a save place. I was the only foreıgner ın the entire place except for the about 50 Russian girls. You pay 30 YTL/ 20 Euros for the first beer and 10 YTL for every beer after that. It was interesting to see how ıt works in Turkey but to go there ıs only worth it if you take a girl home.
There's plenty of selectıon. I would rate the gırls from 5 to 8. All Russıan and most of them blonde. Don't show up too early - ıt get's going around 11. Before that there's only guys ın there. Then all over a sudden the gırls come ın, get on the dancefloor and people pıck theır favorıtes. So you better be there when thıs happens to pıck the best lookıng ones. But even ıf you show up later there's no problem - girls outnumber the guys.
One more thıng: be careful in other places (Taksim). There's a lot of touts around and they've tried to play all the well known tricks on me. Askıng for the tıme, a cıgarette etc . (Review # 14215)

I just came back from Istanbul on Feb 20th 2006. Anyone who want to travel to Istanbul for sex better read this posting to avoid being ripped off.
Istanbul is a city where it's inhabitants treat foreigners like a walking ATM machine. They will attempt to part you from your money with any and every way or form possible. It's up to you to minimize the damaged done. It's just the nature of the beast.
If you understand that rule of the game, then you can proceed with the fun this city have to offer.
First off, I enter Istanbul with the references from previous listings on this board.I must say some of these listings are old and misleading.
Altin Ishik hotel is nowhere to be found. Asking the taxi drivers only prompted shrugs of indifference and puzzled look from the largely non-English speaker taxi drivers. I went to Big Pub and let me tell you, the girls ther e are either old or homely and the younger ones are not up to par for my taste.
Anyone is in for a quick fuck is probably okay with it but why travel this far to fuck someone uglier that the ones you can get back home and pay for it to boot?
Having said that, I ended up at Bacardi Bar, apparently the high end and famous bar in Istanbul to pick up Eastern Euro girls. I was there the first night and asked two girls to sit down and negotiate, I went with the second girl. All I had to drink was a cup of tea and the bill come to 70 Lira! Plus 5 Lira tip for the host who was not satisfied with it even though he did nothing much in term of service.
I was bilked out of another 20 Lira at the coat check counter claiming that I have to pay 20 Lira for the girl's coat being hung in the coat check rack.
Then we went to the hotel of the girl's choosing wher e the reception proceed to hustle $ 60 US dollar for the room, contrary to the girl's info that the room was suppose to cost only 60 Lira.
At this point I need to inform readers that all the hotels at Aksaray-Laleli area Prohibit you from bringing girls back to your room, especially the Russian girls, because they know the girls are hookers and they are barred from all the hotels especially the higher end ones in the area.
So make your travel arrangement accordingly and avoid booking into hotels in the Aksaray-Laleli area. Thats' why I have to go to the hotel of the girl's choosing and continued being screwed out of my money.
This first girl I am with, is a money milker, once we arrived, she asked for drink that I have to pay, which is totally overpriced. I can guarantee you that she will get some cut from the hotel from the room fee to the drinks and other expenses I paid for bringing me to their establishment. The girl asked for $ 200 US but I bargained down to $ 150 for 2 hours. The sex was tame with condoms for all activities.
At the end of the session she have the nerve to ask for tips (read: milk more money from the foreigner)which I was totally disgusted by. After all is said and done I spent over $ 350 US dollars plus all the unnecessary hoop-jumping , which is pretty much the going rate for a shag in the US without all the annoying legwork.
To the Credit of Bacardi Bar, all the girls there, or 80 % of the girls there are hotties.
A week later I went back to Bacardi Bar because I spotted a really hot supermodel type the week before but she was snatched up so quickly that I did not have a chance to ask for her in previous visit.
The way it work in Bacardi Bar is that you go in, sit down, the host ask you for your drink and proceed to bring some pistachio nuts and lame cut up fruit on a plate along with your drink to your table. The girls will be dancing on the stage. If you see anyone you like, tell the host and he will bring the girl over from the stage and you will conduct your business with her.
I finally saw the girl I like so I quickly asked her over before she was taken by other patrons. She asked for $ 200 US for 2 hours and I tried to bargain but she was playful but adamant with her price. I didn't want to waste anymore time so I agreed and asked for the check. The check arrived but this time it's 80 Lira! It looks to me that the host is making up the number of the bill as he goes, seeing that I am a foreigner. I asked for explanation , he act upset and walked away. I didn't want to waste anymore time at that bar so I paid the bill plus 5 Lira tip to the dickhead and left. I must add that the waiters in that place were annoying and shameless!
They kept coming to my table and ask for tip even when the did absolutely nothing! This goes back to the earlier explanation on how the visitors will be treated like a walking money dispenser machine!
They are like those annoying flies hovering around your food when you are eating. Back to the girl, now at the coat check counter, the bouncer ask for the fee for handing over the girls coat, this time they asked for 10 Lira, instead of 20 Lira like last week. This goes to show that these guys are making up numbers as they go. You will then proceed to take a taxi from in front of the club to the hotel of the girl's choosing.
Usually, the taxi short ride is 5 Lira around Aksaray area and they don't bother to turn on the meter. This time around though, this fat fuck of a driver have the balls to ask for 10 Lira for that short drive. I want to argue but since the meter was off, they can charge anything they want if you didn't negotiate the rate ahead of time.
The hotel charge this time around is 70 Lira. By the way, you need to bring your passport with you if you want to go to the hotel with the girl and leave the passport with the hotel clerk when you go and do your business.
If you don't have passport, you can't get to the room with the girl.
I guess this is to prevent you from skipping or causing trouble with the girl. I am very wary about leaving my passport for fear of what they can do with it.
US passport is like a gold commodity in the Turkey black market, if you are not aware of that fact yet. Overall that night, I spent roughly the same amount as the previous experience the week before. This time though, I had a hottie who look like a supermodel for a couple of hours who is amazing in bed.
The moral of this posting is:
If you go to Bacardi Bar, first off, ask for the menu price, ask for all the prices of items your want order before you order them; and when the bill come and it's over priced by 400%, demand explanation from the host.
If you are going to do this, know in your head that you will be milked out your hard earned money anyway they can and it's up to you to minimize the damaged using your intelligent against their well honed tricks.
Once that ground rule is established in your mind, you can start to relax and enjoy the ride. Hopefully not get taken for a ride too far off.
It's time to be proactive and not fall victim as the stereotypical dumb rich tourist from the west who is ripe for the milking! For my money, I would go to London and spend less on the same quality girls with less legworks and not being put off by the greedy people in the system.
One last thing, do not speak to anyone on the streets of Istanbul who call you or try to speak to you. Nothing good will come from answering their call or inquiries!
Avoid Grand Bazaar with it's overinflated prized items and opt for smaller shops elsewhere if you want to shop in Istanbul and not getting taken for a ride and regret it on your way home.
Good Night, and Good Luck! (Review # 14130)

Hi there I have been to Club Bacardi twice. I have heard from various sources that it is a reliable establishment before I gave a try. I was told you dont get ripped off there which I did not in either of these occasions, but it is an expensive place anyway. The cover charge is 30ytl which includes some snacks and fruits but they put this in your bill, so you dont pay for this untill you leave. It is a huge saloon, there are women dancing in the middle and at the tables and all are working girls. There are almost exclusively from ee do not expect to get a Turkish girl there.
There are maybe 50+ girls around and they know how to dress to the occasion, I got a hard on immidiately there. The catch is that you can not approach a girl and talk by yourself. You tell the waiter and show the girl to the waiter, The waiter goes to the girl points you to the girl and the girl comes over to your table.
They charge 30ytl for this service. Even you dont like the girl after you talk and tell her you will not take her to a hotel, it is 30 ytl in your bill. Meanwhile girl would ask you to buy her a drink which is another 30ytl. It was kind of dark inside, and the first girl I had in my table did not look as nice from close range. So I had to pass her and got another girl to come to my table for additional cost of 30 ytl. Then you talk to the girl and the girls that I talked charged 200 ytl for two hours minimum and they were strict about going to a hotel of their choice. And although my car was parked within 50 meters of the club they insisted on taking a taxi.
Also note that when you are leaving the club the girl picks her coat at the door and the door man charges 10 ytl for that. And you have to pay another 10 ytl to the taxi for a few hundred meters drive to the hotel. Now you are in the hotel. In these 2 occasions the girls took me to the same hotel its name is Koza I think but I maybe wrong? The hotel works exclusively for this purpose and they charge 60 ytl for 2 hours. They have a channel that a porn movie is on. So you are looking at at leat 370 ytl (close to 300$) for 2 hours of fun and if you dont like the first girl you invited and need to invite more than one girl to your table it is even higher (60 ytl for each extra girl approximately).
On the positive side the girls in bacardi are kind of upscale and they are not forced into the business. The girls i talked to were mentioning about taking a break and go back to their home for sometime especially during the ramadan month when the business is very slow. So it seemed to me they had a full control on their schedule and career. so you are not getting into some human tragedy. Enjoy

- Izmir Travel Report Dated Added: Mon Jan 16 2006 Submitted by: John
Hi, I had a wonderful time and experience when I was in Turkey 2 years ago. I met a Turkish girl in a local bar in Izmir, her name was Buse and she was 21 years old. I told her I was American and she got interested quite fast. We started to talk a bit and the day after we started to date each other.
After 5 days I took her to a motel and we had sex! Oh boy, she was amazing! She gave me a BJ and you wont believe it this girl took the whole load in her mouth. I warned her while she was blowing me that I would cum but she didn't bother. But she didn't swallow. She spitted the cum out of her mouth.
For this I went down on her with my tounge and I can say Turkish pussies taste like delight. Today, I still have contact with this girl by email. She keeps asking me about America and so on... I'll tell you guys, these Turkish girls show you a very big interest if you are foreign especially if you're American. They seem to like guys from America in my opinion.
So if you wanna have good time and good sex, I definitely recommend Turkey. The girls over there are easy to catch, like I said... especially if you are a foreign man. (Review # 13722)

Referendum for brothel--mid-December, 2005
Melih Gokcek, mayor of greater Ankara, told Hurriyet that he was going to ensure the demolishment of the Bentdere brothel, adding that he would call for a referendum should the Ankara Governor’s Office demand special planning permission for the relocation of the new brothel. According to Gokcek, the Bentdere brothel will be demolished in June next year.
If Gokcen’s plan is undergone, hundreds of citizens could be called on to take part in the brothel referendum. While officials state that it would be legally impossible for such a construction to take place without specific residential planning for something of this kind, Gokcen said, “It is up to the Ankara Governor’s Office’s to decide whether the brothel should be moved to another location or not, or whether a new brothel should be open at all. But if we are asked to have specific planning for the brothel, we will ask whoever lives in the area where the brothel is to be built. I am a strong believer in democracy and human rights.”

Dear Gentlemen: It is my duty to inform you about the way it works in Turkey. Let me start to explain to you about my experiences in this big city. First I arrived (my age is 22 years) on my own in Istanbul... for me this was the first time here, and I moved directly into my hotel. Afterwards, I talked with a guy who informed me about LALI and Aksaray... that these areas were dangerous. I became interested and I thought, Wow, this could be interesting. When I arrived in Aksaray, a guy on the street said to me, hey!... you looking for girls? Come with me... I said okay, let's go.
We went to a club... actually, very dark inside... and they pushed me to order drinks. When I asked for a price list, a cola was 10 mil. We had like, 4 cola and they presented me a bill of 160 mil! I had a lot of problems and I wanted to fight with them, so at the end, I paid 40 mil. What I want to say is that they always try to rip-off tourists for 800$ and shit... This happened also to other friends of mine. When I went to police, they said yeah, we can't do anything against these guys... even they are afraid, the officer said. So people, be aware... the police said to me: go next time to BACARDI BAR IN AKSARAY... there it is safe.
I went there and I became friends with the Manager. We talked about what happened to me. Now, I always go to Bacardi... sometimes just for a talk with this guy. They are always correct and friendly. Prices are: For a Beer and Fruit: 20mil; and girls are about 150$.
Buy... You get young top girls. When you look at them, you become horny... seriously !! This happens to me :-) I will visit this club this Sunday.
Take care in Istanbul! Bye bye.

The area near the Galata Tower was lousy. It was difficult to find the Zurafa Sokok (street). Start at Galata Tower and look towards the water. Go downhill from Galata Tower on a main street, and then to the left down a narrow, steep cobblestone street. A digital photo store is on the corner where you should turn left. In front is a sign that says something about "fotography not allowed" in Turkish. Worth seeing, but I wouldn't screw anything in there.

Hello All! Seems you guys are having trouble finding fun and or ending up disappointed here in Istanbul. First, Istanbul is a city where everything is possible... you just have to know how to find it. When I say everything, I really mean everything... the city is a real world city in all respects: You can get ripped off, find a goddess to sleep with, and find everything from vanilla to extreme kink...
Unfortunately, good sex in Istanbul, like anything else of quality, costs the same as in European cities like London, Paris, Vienna, etc... So if you want top quality, you have to be willing to spend the money. If you know how and are willing to shell out a couple of thousand bucks, you can even get a real professional model... So, if anyone is coming here and looking for cheap sex, forget it... unless you are lucky enough to hook up with a local girl, and get her attention enough to bed her (which is very possible, if you go to lively joints where local girls are, and you don't look and act like an ass).
I have had all kinds of fun with local girls (non pro, and without paying)... had sex in bar/club bath rooms, at hotels, and at their place. So before spending your cash, try to find out about the city... This city has been in the top 10 world cities to live in several times in the past 5 years. It has one of the liveliest nightlife's in the world. (I travel 3 to 4 days a week throughout the world, and should know)... Have fun, and don't get ripped off...

- Mersin Travel Report Dated Added: Fri Sep 16 2005 Submitted by: NathanR
I was on holiday with my best friend in Turkey. A town called Mersin. Not touristic at all. If you want some nooky there, drive towards KARACAILYAS (the same road that goas to Adadana). Just before KARACAILYAS (a village) there is a a place called "Asphalt Chantier" .... they repair roads. Well, just in front of this, you turn left. At the next junction you go left again ... and then you will know it because there's some sort of valet service. In summary, you will find there: ... a lot of mediocre and old birds ... maybe I was lucky, I don't know ... but I had the fuck of my life. A beautifully big-titted young bird who was really lovely. Walked outta this compound feelin weak on ma legs (seriously).
Anyway, if you are in Mersin and you want more choice ... then you should go to Kyzkalesi (Korokos is the old Greek name) about 70 KM west along the coast. This place has prostitutes from all over. But you need to know where to go. I recommend Hotel Holland, Hotel Delphi .... Had such a good time ... that I can't remember the last Hotel name.

Traveller, Whatever happened to you can happen anywhere in the world..Similar situation reminds me when I was 20+ years old and visiting Athens. I can see you are upset for what happened, but hopefully will not happen again. Do not get upset with all Turks, or any other nationality, because you were not smart enough to see what would be the next in a situation like that. You were horny and just thinking about women, not anything else. Like they say, in men's body there is only enough blood to fill either his brain or his penis.

ISTANBUL BIG-MONEY SCAM ALERT!!!! Please learn from my costly mistake. The Taksim Square area of Istanbul is rife with clubs that are thinly veiled criminal enterprises designed to wring large sums of cash from unsuspecting single-male tourists.
Here is how it works: You are in Turkey, don't speak the language, and head out alone at night for a bar, or maybe a good time. You're walking down the street, and a friendly man about your age asks you for the time in the most casual of ways. "Oh, you speak English?" he says. He strikes up a conversation, and says he's heading out for a beer, would you like to join him? He says he's a family man, has a wife and kid. You're new, don't speak the language. He comes off as a good guy, a local, who speaks the language and can show you a cool place. What the heck, right? He takes you to a "club," and before you know it a couple of scantily clad young Ukranian women are at your side chatting you up. Before you have time to figure out what is happening, a burly manager with all the charm of a Mafia thug presents you with a bill for around $800 -- for the ladies "drinks." Your companion laughs when you tell him it is too much. "Istanbul is expensive. Don't worry. Have a good time." But it soon becomes clear that your new best friend is actually in league with the club, and is not just Joe Turk out for a beer.
Two big men led me to an ATM machine and demanded I withdraw the money. In my panic, I did. I felt threatened, and didn't want to get beat up. I was so embarrassed about the situation that I didn't call the police. And from what I have read elsewhere, the clubs know you're in town for just a few days and that you probably won't stick around to prosecute. So PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do not take up anyone on an offer to join them at a bar, particularly near Taksim Square. You will be out more cash than you know. The club -- may it go to Hell! -- where I got snookered was called CITY NIGHTS. But there are many others in the same area running the same scam. BEWARE!
