Turkish Sex Matters and Sexuality
The 10 Basic Varieties of Unfaithful Turkish Lovers
According to 'The Lying Eyes Club' Website, there are 10 basic
categories of unfaithful Turkish lovers/partners -- who are
motivated, in some cases, by strong positive or negative emotions and, in
other cases, by almost no emotion at all. The categories are: Mental Cheaters, Virtual Cheaters, "Testing 1, 2, 3" Cheaters, Physical Cheaters, Platonic Cheaters, Mulish or Spiteful Cheaters, Eye-for-an-Eye Cheaters, Multi-party Cheaters, Partner 'Pre-Approved' Cheaters, and Romantic Cheaters. And, they are characterized in the following ways...
1) Mental Cheaters (Beyinde Aldatmaları): The cheating is confined to
the mind of the cheater who imagines, but doesn't act on his/her
desires or fantasies. At worst, the cheater thinks of someone else,
while making love to his/her partner.
2) Virtual Cheaters (Sanal Aldatmaları): Involves encounters on the
Internet in Chat Rooms and such. Can be quite stimulating, but doesn't
involve anything physical, just yet. It's the first stage for those
wanting to test the cheating waters.
3) "Testing 1, 2, 3" Cheaters (Deneme 1-2 Aldatmaları): The cheaters
actually meet face to face, but don't have sex. Gives them a chance to
measure their guilty consciences. If their guilt-complex meters read low, of
course, then their next step is sex.
4) Physical Cheaters (Fiziksel Aldatmaları): Sex is the only goal/aim
for cheaters in this category. And... because they don't let their emotions get involved, this sort of cheater may not even consider 'pure sex' to
be 'real cheating'.
5) Platonic Cheaters (Platonik Aldatmaları): Cheaters of this variety
remain discreet and somewhat distant -- always demonstrating 'good
taste'. They may actually be in love but they don't become physically
involved with the object of their affection.
6) Mulish or Spiteful Cheaters (İnat için Aldatmaları): In this
category, cheating arises when one partner is overly jealous of the
other. The object of the jealousy feels smothered -- and reasons
silently, "Well, since you already believe me guilty of cheating, and
don't seem to trust me anyway, I might as well go ahead and cheat for
7) Eye-for-an-Eye Cheaters (Kısasa Kısas Aldatmaları): A revenge cheater is unfaithful with the first willing person he/she
encounters, after learning that his/her partner has cheated on
him/her. "If you can do it, so can I," is the motto of cheaters in this group.
8) Multi-party Cheaters (Multi Aldatmaları): Refers to those unfaithful ones who cheat with several people at the same time -- and/or who cheat with
the partners of other cheaters. It is in this category of cheaters
that Pınar Altuğ falls -- because she neatly 'completed the square'
consisting of husband Umut Elçioğlu, Tony Teodoridis, Can Tezal, and
toy-boy Yağmur Atacan -- which gave her bragging rights over competing
cheaters, and won her the Poster Girl spot on the Lyin' Eyes Club website.
