Istanbul Ts Nightlife


Recommended Posts

So I went to Istanbul last year for a trip and decided to explore the local scene. I thought I would pass on the info for those who might be interested. I didn't know if this should go in Asia or Europe, so I put it here.

I think it is a beautiful fun city and there are a lot of shemales there but I wouldn't recommend it for a mongering trip as its expensive compared to Thailand and not as much variety. But if you end up in the city on business or a lay-over, there is some fun to be had. I didn't take anyone as I was there free for only one night but I think the going rate is about 100 Lira or about 50 euro for short time. It may be more if they thinl you are a rich foreigner.

All the venues I visited were in the Taksim area (downtown area) and easily walkable from one spot to the next. I went on a Thursday night, so it was a relatively quite night.

The map below should be a good guide. (The spots are approximations, so the actual locations may be off a little)

The first place is called the Marilyn 1001 Disco:

There is obviously no stall in front when it is open. This is a mixed venue with 10-15 ladies and shemales mixed together. I had originally thought all the ladies were of the third type as they were all relatively tall but I was proven wrong when one of the tallest ones, a blonde with big tits flashed her shaved pussy to me and informed me otherwise.

Apparently the place has a mix of local shemales and gg from east Europe. Rather strange mix but fun for a night. Entry fee was 15 Lira (includes your first drink) and a beer also costs 15 Lira. The ladyboys looked alright but nothing to write home about, generally taller then their Thai counterparts.

The next place was a smaller bar venue called No Name bar. The place had 4 or 5 shemales there. They were generally pretty average looking except for one absolute stunner. To be honest she looked so good I wasn’t even a hundred percent sure she was a shemale.

The bar looks as such from the outside:

Finally, when I was wandering around the backstreets of the Taksim area, I strolled down a street with two buildings with what I thought were ladies sitting at the windows (all of them). I didn’t pay much attention until a number of them made cat calls to get my attention, then I knew I had wandered into what was apparently a shemale redlight area. The ladies were of varying quality, some real rough heads, and some that were acceptable. I was thinking of popping in to have a go at one but I was gunshy as I am not sure how everything works.

They objected to me taking a photo of the building as the police tends to crack down hard in conservative Turkey. But here are some picture of the streets leading into the area:

Very interesting and informative Zaronxas. Thanks for the report. I've been to Istanbul. I had no idea there was a scene there.

I think there is a huge scene actually. It's just more under cover because it's a socially conservative country.

Great thread Z! :happy0065:

Big tools in Constantinople!

For the time being will leave this thread here so the guys who have replied can find it easy.

But will eventually move it to Europe mainly cause our Europe section is embarrassing and need some threads there.

Hey Guys, if you have info about the Ladyboy Scene in any country, please start a thread!

To be honest the ladies above live in the European side, so Pdogg can

No so fast pdogg.

Half of Istanbul is in Europe and half in Asia. Before you go moving the threat zaronxas has to tell us what continent he found these ladies. :acute:

Good point.

I'll say though, these ladies are all on the European side of town. Also, most of the fun areas are also on the European side.

Now this is an interesting thread and confirms a hunch of mine. Sometimes I use Cam Frog, and I have noticed on the Turkey section there is nearly always a shemale chat room active. The only other country with transsexual rooms is Thailand that I am aware of. So I guessed there must be some type of bigish scene there, and this thread has confirmed that.

Excellent reporting zaronxas. :good:

Istanbul is a city I have considered visiting, for a variety of reasons. But this thread is gold dust, and a complete surprise. Was thinking of travelling in female company, but this suddenly alters my thinking.

Might persuade 'katoeylover' to be my wingman (or vice versa!)

Well since i can see Turkey from my window( rhodes is only 9km away) every day,and never been there yet,after this report about the ladyboy scene there i got interested to pay a visit just for a weekend.

So after a few calls i did to some friends i have there for info about the ladyboys there i change my mind of going there.

Most of the hookers there and many of the lbs are all control from the russian and turkish mafia,also the turkish police many times raid some of the places they are...there also many lbs who "work" on their own,but most of the nice ones

pay protection to the mob.

Unless somebody knows well Instanbul how to go around,then i wouldnt try to find those area on my own.

The best is to stay on a nice hotel,where they can arrange to have the lb or a gg to come to ur room...also u can make an appointment through vicesisters

Good advice Panic.

I've been to Istanbul a few times and I can confirm it can be a VERY dangerous and dodgy place especially if you are in the wrong areas at the wrong time looking for things...well..., you know what I mean. Be careful if you go. They can pick you cleaner than a Christmas turkey...so to speak.

There are loads of TS on various websites, so knew there was a scene there somewhere.

I often thought about getting some "room service" whilst there with work....

But I'm fucked after working the flight, and save my cash for LOS.

Well, as a person from Istanbul, I can say that there IS a big scene. GGs are harder to come by on p4p scene. Almost all freelance streetwalkers are TS actually. They're mostly off from the definition of LB, but nonetheless.....but just as you have to be careful with freelancers in Pattaya or the front of Nana Plaza, you have to be careful with them too. There have been reports of theft, scamming and sometimes assault.

 

That Club 1001 is said to be closed now. And the place named No-Name is a gay bar, where TS also frequent. Actually, this is the case with many gay bars. As for living in a conservative society, even the most un-homophobic friend/acquintance seeing me getting out of one of those places might be a lil' problematic for a straight-acting dude like me, who keeps his fascination with LB's secret as it comes, I never go places like that. Also many a TS bars in the scene can be scamming places, just as some "upstairs venues" in Patpong. You can have an outrageous bill for a few beers and nuts. Actually this is also the case with GG joints of the same setting too. 

 

So to speak, many TS girls have their own websites, some of them even can speak English and have English info on their sites. I don't think their English would be good, but you can expect some company. In Istanbul, most of them stay around Sisli area. There are also close to Bakirkoy, Findikzade areas, Beylikduzu at the far western Istanbul, also around Kadikoy in Asian side, and Kartal, the eastern end of Istanbul

 

Other big Turkish cities Ankara and Izmir has plenty of gals too and many many of the big city TS girls flock to the southern beach resorts in summer.

Istambul I come !

I am booked to Istambul June 5 - 8 ( 3 nights) I will stay in a gay friendly hotel on Taksim square , so not to far where the action is (supposed to be).

I have gone through all the escort websites , there you can find phantastic looking shemales ( the question is if their pics are real ??),but at ridiculous prices, read all accessible reports, including the valuable one here and hope to be well prepared for a few nice turkish shemales , or what ever you call them.

What I found out that the attitude of turkish men against shemales seems to be a lot like the behaviour of Philippine mens.They also want to fuck them or let them do a blow job but if posssible without getting in touch with the cock of the ladyboy, not talking at all about sucking a ladyboy or let the ladyboy fuck them.I have made many ladyboys quite happy by satisfying them the same way they did to me.

I wonder now how this will work in Turkey.

I have the adress of a few bars where one should find shemales (No name Bar, Sahra Bar,etc)but also heard that there is a great street action around Istiklal and Tarlabasi street as well as on Bagdat street and around Fenerbahce stadion.

Maybe Juzirneym has a few more new informations ?

Staying in a gayfriendly hotel also hope to get some information and help from the management (lol)

Turkey getting cheaper ?

On page one of this thread 100 TL have been converted into 50 Euro, todays exchange rate is 2,95 TL for one Euro, if the going rate of 100 TL is still valid it should be only 33 Euro per shot, that comes already down to Bangkok or Phuket prices ( 1500 Bhat ST)if

prices in Istambul have not gone up last two years .

Hopefully I am right ! lol

Website pictures: Some are real, some are not. Actually most like a touch of photoshop on their pics.

 

Turkish men & TS: Well, the part: "They also want to fuck them or let them do a blow job but if posssible without getting in touch with the cock of the ladyboy, not talking at all about sucking a ladyboy or let the ladyboy fuck them" is what they say...but in reality they do be the bottom. Actually on local TS forums, the most asked questions are: "How's her tool like?", "How does she top?" Although there are many guys who only top and avoid the cock (including myself, I sometimes caress it though), there are many who return the favor fully. Even there are many guys only getting shagged and not the other way around. Mostly it's the closet gays' façade. If a guy is seen with a TS on the street, he can fake being with a woman (a GG one at that if she's convincing enough) whom he's fucking...but in reality he's the one getting it. 

 

So, you'll have no problems of getting laid on both sides. There are bottom only girls though, but they write that on their websites.. The words in Turkish for top and botom is "aktif" (active) and "pasif" (passive) respectively.

 

Prices: Recently it goes from 100 to 200 TL, but many will want tips. And there's this double pricing thing depending on your nationality according to some girls. Negotiate beforehand.

 

I'd personally recommend meeting through websites and phones than the street walking action, a little seedy I think. And there's this "dating" site I recommend http://www.shemaleturk.com has an English version, but only partly translated, most left in Turkish, and its mobile site is kinda unstable, getting your profile mixed-up (e.g. my sign switched from libra to scorpio, then sagittarius, now back to scorpio, though I am a libra), etc.

 

The terms used on the site (and in general) are as follows:

Pre-op TG: Travesti (just like in Brazil)

Post-op TG: Transseksüel

Transvestite / Crossdresser: CD

 

The area between these can be somewhat blurred. Sometimes "Transseksüel" can be used by a pre-op too. On escorting sites, the keywords are "ameliyatlı" for post-op and "ameliyatsız" for pre-op. "ameliyatlı değilim" means "I'm not operated" so, this is also an indication on that.
