If you allow almost any Turk to obtain a platform they will lecture you about the chastity, respect for values and woman within Turkish society and contrast it to the decadence of Western civilization. However according to the German-Turkish writer Seyran Ates, sex with one's wife has been reduced to something perfunctory, with Turkish husbands openly going to brothels for enjoyment. Not only that but according to Wikileaks in Turkey those brothels are populated mostly by either Turkish or foreign infidel/gavur woman forced into prostitution. Thus it is obvious which civilization is the more moral one.

TITLE: Those who force children into prostitution
BEGIN TEXT: Sabah, for the past two days has been publishing a sad story that turns our stomachs. This is the story of kids who were dragged into prostitution. Girls as young as 12 and 13 are being sold in front of police in Istanbul. They are somehow being taken out of state- controlled centers and being dragged into prostitution.
These poor girls could be our daughters.
... Meanwhile, I learned that the person behind the child prostitution is
Serpil from Kayseri. Her real name is Cemile Aydin. She is
involved in child prostitution.
Authorities took action 23 times against this woman and her brothel where she employs children. It was raided most
recently on October 9, 2005. She was captured while forcing
girls to prostitute themselves. This house was raided again
late last night. She was released by the court in which she appeared. Child prostitution is the biggest shame in civilized countries, but it is openly conducted in Turkey. And one of those who are responsible for this is wandering freely, despite the fact that she was captured 23 times.

TITLE: A raid on a brothel
BEGIN TEXT: Some time ago, Sabah published reports exposing
the prostitution scandal in Beyoglu. This situation brought
to agenda indeed has been disturbing to those who have lived
in Tarlabasi for a long time.
People living in that neighborhood and hotel owners many
times filed official complaints to the Istanbul Governor's
office and the Provincial Tourism Director. They asked
officials to stop what was going on. They even gave the
addresses of the houses involved in prostitution. Later
came the comedy. The Governor and Provincial Tourism
Director referred the issue to the police.
The police first collected the women working on the street
and transsexuals. Certainly, prostitution did not end.
There was a need to carry out an operation on the brothel.
They applied to the prosecutor, who gave the go ahead for a
single search. The operation was then carried out. Let me
read the rest from the official document that was prepared
after the operation. "When we went to the buildings numbered 18 and 24 on X Street, and numbers 9 and 14, we noticed that their doors were closed. We rang the bells many times, but nobody responded. We concluded that there was nobody inside and we did not conduct a search." Policemen in official uniforms knocked on the doors of the brothels and when nobody answered the door, they decided not to conduct an operation.
What were the policemen expecting? Were they expecting someone to tell them, "Welcome. Let me offer you something"? END TEXT.
