    When hetro-people watch other men they call it sports. You really want a “milk shake” not a “cigarette”.

  • CattyNineTails

    Mmmmm, turkish wrestler salad !

    Can I toss it before I serve it ?

  • Ben L.

    No words. Only sighs and moans.

    Two observations:

    1) When gay people do that it’s called “PORN”; and
    2) I think I’m gonna need a cigarette!

    I’d thank you, but I’m told I need sensitivity training before I can comment further (seriously). ;-)

    I’ll gladly take em off your hands—-no pun intended.

    I think the Olympic Committee should take up the Zen of Closet Watching.

    I know just the Turkish wrestler to fix that!

    All that greasin’ seems to make the wrestling part more challenging, but It does also appear to have some ancillary benefits, if applicable. Straight, gay or bi it looks like they’re into it sans the timidity and the awkwardness – not to mention the insufferable patronizing smugness – that is now so often part and parcel of our media saturated, superficial, obsessively self-conscious & self-centered “Western Civilization” and that’s ok with me too. I’m usually the last to know in any case. But this process of “getting to know” across cultural divides can be interesting, educational & stimulating and allows some of us to get familiar on a respectful “person-to=person” basis before dealing with more intimate issues, without making too many misguided assumptions;)

    Isn’t that ridiculous? Both freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling will be excluded from the 2020 Olympics. Wrestling has been a core Olympic event for more than 2,700 years but apparently it’s not as important as golf. Wrestling is being dropped so that they can add golf!!!!! Idiots!!!!!

  • PLAINTOM

    They have removed Greco-Roman wrestling from the Olympics , I think you just gave me an idea.

    Pfft. On behalf of all the Bi people who do not have a bug lodged firmly up their asses, I’m sorry you have had to endure that.

    I know the post to which you’re referring… it was perhaps inelegantly put on your part, but undeserving of the extreme opprobrium and scorn that was heaped upon you.

  • Tor

    Thank you thank you thank you

    Or she’ll send you out for some olive oil :)

    Sorry, Beccam, but I was told last week by the president of a bi group that every time I’ve tried to help, or even mention, bi people over the last 20 years that I’ve been out, I’ve harmed their movement even further. So, I’ll no longer be harming their movement.

    C’mon John! How is someone supposed to not click on the link?

    I’m straight…and those pictures were….whew!…(*loosens collar*)…sweet jeebus those pictures were HOT!

    Now I gotta make sure my wife doesn’t read your post, otherwise she may look down on the sagging, pot-bellied, sour-cream-and-onion-potato-chip infused man-mass known as her husband.

  • MyrddinWilt

    If Google didn’t know John was gay it would have taken him to the female oil wrestling league first.

    Those are some fancy wrasslin’ pants!

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Funny, that’s how it usually goes for my wife and me, too. No kids though.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    That’s how my husband and I imagined our Saturday nights would be when both of the kids had dates. The reality was playing an old movie and sleeping on the couch.

    Thanks John, Priceless!,

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    You can add “…or if you’re Bi” to that list, by the way.

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Ay caramba!

  • OtterQueen

    Straight chick here (well, okay, mostly straight). Does nothing for me. These guys are over-developed and too skinny. I can’t help it, I like my guys with a little paunch!

  • Ninong

    That move is well known to American wrestlers, too. It’s called “checking his oil.” Seriously.

  • juicyfruitgum

    straight woman thank you! thank you! sweet baby Jesus they are beautiful!

  • http://AMERICAblog.com/ John Aravosis

    LOL I think I read about this once. Her post is hilarious.

  • Drew2u

    lemme guess: Turkish oil wrestling?
