So, the premise of oil wrestling is this: first, get greased up with olive oil.
You need lots of oil.
This man may or may not be oiled enough.
This man looks suitably oiled.
Grab a friend.
Join a team.
And then start wrestling.
The goal is to get a hold on your opponent’s kisbet, or specially made pants.
Seriously. The most effective way to win is to you shove your arm down another man’s pants.
It’s actual wrestling. See?
It just ends like this.
Sometimes winning looks like this.
And sometimes it looks like this.
Yay! You won!
But wrestlers don’t hold grudges.
Opponents can still be friends.
So, thank you, Turkish oil wrestlers, for existing.
