Its a known fact that men in the Afghan city of Kandahar not only indulge in gay sex but also marry men, a guy from there confirmed this, I even got a proposal from him, he admitted that they prefer men to women, rather casually, marriage to them not being uncommon or frowned upon, and thats one of the reasons why the taliban invaded Afghanistan it was one of the major vices that had become the norm in the city besides the other problems with warlords etc. that the country was suffering from. Infact the Governer or some kind of ruler of Kandahar had openly married a younger man that actually drove the Taliban into Afghanistan, now that they are gone I can well imagine what is happening there. Crazy! Just a factoid for you all.

Wow, I never knew that!
Maybe it's because, unlike the women, they actually get to see what they're marrying!! Big grin

I remember seeing or reading about this a while ago. The question that immediately came to mind was, how on earth did they get away with this considering the ultra strict version of Islam imposed on Afghanistan? Are these people even religious, and do they find justification for this in the Koran? Or do they simply not care?

Reminds me of that Purcell air, "What can we poor females do?".

I think they do not care, thats the impression I got from the guy I spoke to, it was like no big deal to him, when I told about it being a Sin and all he was like, I know but anything goes. If you meet these people you'll get the answers yourself, sadly they're not really following Islam in its true spirit, it's sad because they're nice people dont know what get's them to deviate from the norm to such an extent, ofcourse not all Kandahari's are such. By the way this practice had become non-existant during the Taliban era.

With respect, I guarantee you that's not the case. Sexual and emotional intimacy is human nature irrespective of whatever repressive religious institution is scrambling to stop it. Whether it's Kandahar,Afghanistan or Tupelo, Mississippi, you may rest assured there are gay men, there is gay love, there is gay emotional commitment...and yup! there's gay diddlin' goin on.

Im sure the practice was still carried out even when the Taliban were in power, but it was not open like the Sodom like scenario that was being created in Kandahar before the Taliban, according to reports not a single young boy was safe from being raped, and no one discouraged it either.

Airmale is right !
I took a train ride through Pakistan in 1991 and ended up in Peshawar. I found that as I got further North - near Quetta and Peshawar - men were propositioning me left, right and center on trains, buses and various other places. There is definitely a gay subculture that exists in that part of the world !

Incidentally, the men (and women) in Northern Pakistan are incredibly beautiful.

I was seeing a TV show on Afghanistan and they were commenting that during the Taliban regime they punished (suspected) homosexuality with public hangings. Airmale u also mentioned that some city in Iran was also very popular with homosexuals (surpringly it was not Tehran), I wonder if Saudi Airabia has a gay hotspot (that would be funny).

Every last one of my acquaintances, friends, co-workers etc., that hail from every inch of the Mideast UNANIMOUSLY admit that male bisexuality is extremely common and very widespread (but more underground in some places more than others). I've talked to guys from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Bahrain, etc., etc., and they ALL have told me this.

Bisexuality must REALLY be strong amongst Pakistanis, Egyptians, Palestinians, and Israelis. Here in NYC, we have a lot of taxicab drivers from those places and I can't begin to tell you how many times I've been propositioned during a taxi ride from a few of the Manhattan nightclubs I work at.

I'm not kidding when I say the Pakistani and Israeli taxi drivers seem to be the most homo-horny. It's so bizarre because on one hand, they begin babbling about their wife and kids, but before the ride's over they'll ask me if I "feel like getting a "nice big discount" off of the fare if..."

Yep. Pakistanis and Israelis are out there for all you gay guys (especially if you're in and around New York).

Blatant same-sex horniness in certain locales is a direct result of thick cultural repression..

I remember when I lived in Key West, during Spring Break the most likely frat-boy types to wander down to the gay end of Duval Street late after midnight to 'take a walk on the wild side' were the ones from the staunchly conservative Christian schools in the Midwest and South.

The first point I make is the hypocrisy of it all. The second is...why the hell did I leave?

I recall reading a story in the washington Post earlier this year about Taliban discipline. They used the soccer stadia in larger cities for public executions and forced amputations. They would do this in front of stands full of people! The gay dudes must have kept a really low profile while those monsters were in control.

I heard from this soldier who was captured by the Iraqis during the Gulf War that some of them were forced to have sex with Iraqi soldiers. Apparently the British soldiers were so humiliated about it that they never reported it or talked about it afterwards.
