Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution in Turkey is legal and regulated. Brothels are also legal. However, many local governments now have a policy of not issuing new registrations, and in some cities, such as Ankara and Bursa, brothels have been demolished by court order.
Strips clubs are also present in current Turkey. Strip clubs must also be licensed and strippers must be registered and have regular health checkups. All persons entering strip clubs must be at least 18 years old.
Based upon reports and figures collected by a non-governmental organization, there are around 118,000 females working as prostitutes in Turkey.
The majority of the hookers are street workers. Over 100,000 females work as street prostitutes across Turkey.
In addition to the street, there are 15,000 sex workers who are officially registered with the government, and an additional 3,000 prostitutes working in brothels located in 55 of the 81 provinces of Turkey. There are reports of whores working in the brothels until the age of 60.

Turkey is considered to be quite safe for gay and lesbian travelers, and violence against homosexuals is quite rare. There are no laws against homosexuality in Turkey, but same-sex relationships are not recognized by the government and revealing your orientation openly is very likely to draw stares and whispers.
Turkey has got a traditional bisexual or hetero flexible culture taking its root from the history. The classic gay relationship in Turkey is between real gay men and bi-curios men. In this culture the bi-sexual men would never consider themselves as gay - or even bi-sexual, and the gay partners are mostly expected to be more feminine/queer. Hetero-flexible/bisexual guys are supposedly top (aktif = active is the common word in local culture) and do not have sex with each other. This culture can be defined as buggery or sodomy in the western meaning. As a reflection of this bi-sexual culture, there is a big transvestite & transgender society in Istanbul and in other big cities of Turkey. In the last 15 years gay culture has been westernized rapidly, and the interactions between gays themselves have become more common. In fact there is still not a sharp distinction among the sexual orientations. The border-line is very transitional between straight, bisexual, gay, queer, transvestite and transgender people.
Other Adult Services
Dating in Turkey can be a bit tricky due to cultural differences, so your best bet is to sign up for a dating site before your trip so you can meet a few locals ahead of time. AdultFriendFinder.com, for example, lets you meet local members in Turkey and get to know them on a personal basis before you arrive. Take advantage of features like live chat rooms and member webcams so you know who you are chatting with before arranging a face-to-face meeting. Since time in your destination may be limited, get to know each other’s desires beforehand so when you do meet, you can skip the awkward introductions and start having some real fun.
Transsexuals and Shemales
It is hard to be a transsexual in Turkey. Representatives of sexual minorities face challenges if they don't hide their orientation.
Sexual Services for Women
Turkish men are handsome and can be quite seductive. It won't be a problem for a single woman to find a partner during her vacation. But you should ask about his intentions first, because some of them are really serious and may not understand if your intentions are different.
Sleeping and Girl Friendly Hotels
Lots of hotel tolerate prostitutes and even invite them to work on their territory for a fee. When checking in you may see hookers either with clients or by themselves sitting in the lobby or in the restaurant. Sometimes night butterfly may come knocking on your door.
Big cities in Turkey, especially Istanbul, are not immune to petty crime. Although petty crime is not especially directed towards tourists, by no means are they exceptions. Snatching, pickpocketing, and mugging are the most common kinds of petty crime.
Avoid dark and desolate alleys at night. If you know you have to pass through such a place at night, don’t take excessive cash with you but instead deposit your cash into the safe-box at your hotel. Stay away from demonstrating crowds if the demonstration seems to be turning into an unpeaceful one. Also in resort towns, when going to beach, don’t take your camera or cell phone with you if there will be no one to take care of them while you are swimming. If you notice that your wallet has been stolen it is wise to check the nearest trash cans before reporting the loss to the police. It is often the case that thieves in Turkey will drop the wallet into the trash to avoid being caught in possession of the wallet and proven a thief. Obviously it is highly likely that your money will no longer be in it, but there is a chance that your credit cards and papers will be.
