Turkish-German actress Sila Sahin has stepped forward as Playboy’s first Turkish covergirl and Muslim’s are pissed! She appears in the May issue of German Playboy magazine.

 “For me, these pictures are an act of liberation from the cultural constraints of my childhood,” says Sahin. “I have tried to please everybody for too long. With these images I want to show young Turkish women that it is OK to live the way they are; that it is not cheap to show skin; that you should pursue your goals instead of bowing down to others.”

 Attention Muslim misogynists: She is woman… hear her roar!

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal.

I must say you have done a superb job with this.
In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
Outstanding Blog!

"Also, I did not say there was anything wrong with the naked body or sexuality."

I never said you did. I'm saying her actions are meant to dispel this notion.

As in, " With these images I want to show young Turkish women that it is OK to live the way they are; that it is not cheap to show skin..."

Personally, I think it's great what she did, and if people don't like the way she chose to express her sexuality, that's a matter of subjective taste. I, for one, say if she wants to do it in this way, why not? What is the difference between men choosing what is appropriate in a sexual context for women, and other women choosing it for women. Why not let the choice lie with the individual? Are women some how lacking in the mental capacity to decide for themselves?

There are many intelligent women who do enjoy sexuality in this way. Nina Hartley, for example, is one of them. She writes books on Feminism and is a prominent humanist. She also has big fake books and stars in mainstream porn. She is very much aware of feminist theory, heck she writes it, but she still expresses her sexuality in this way, one that many deem is "male centered."

Quoting MyMelody:
I would most certainly support this woman in her endeavor if she looked any other way. I support people who wish to dispel the notion that there is something innately wrong with the unclothed human body, or sexuality and sexual desire.


MyMelody - you're probably in the minority of supporters (if she weren't so attractive). And I feel the same, but my point was that most people put way too much weight on a particular standard of beauty. Also, I did not say there was anything wrong with the naked body or sexuality. I'm for both personally. I wish we didn't make such a big deal about it. My point was that if a woman wants to make a strong statement and try to make a difference, there are more effective ways of doing that. Posing nude for a magazine that caters to a majority male population seems a bit off the mark.

Quoting Stacey B:
So what if she wasn't so beautiful?? Would everyone be as supportive of her baring her naked body? I kind of doubt it. Here we go once again, rewarding our western ideal of beauty and putting on display in a men's magazine. How about she speak out against something important and make a difference? That would be stepping forward!

And for me, this is very important. The notion that sexuality and exposure of the body is bad, is one that leads to, in many cases, violence against women. Who doesn't remember at least one incident where a woman's sexual mistreatment was excused because she was dressed too "provocatively"? Or she displayed any kind of sexuality? Also, It may be a men's magazine, but I'm finding her pretty arousing too. ;)

Quoting omnia vanitas:
Going from a second-class citizen to a mutilated object is hardly any better, and it's not helping any Turkish women to be treated more like human beings either. Anyone who thinks this is "empowerment" is a fucking idiot.


Mutilated object? Are you smoking the cheap stuff? I don't think you can be the judge of whether she feels empowered or not. I think that's up to her. Feminist doesn't have to equal frumpy or sexless. Maybe Playboy should do a pictorial of college professors.


Gotta love the whole sexy nerd thing! ^_^

Why is she a mutilated object? Is it because she is being openly sexual? Because she is not confining herself to a type of sexuality you deem proper? Because people will, no doubt, become aroused at her visage? (As if she wasn't aware of this).

Do women not merit respect lest they are asexual?

Most women are sexual beings: mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, duaghters, cousins all. Methinks, it's about time that the public at large come to terms with the fact that women are sexual, sometimes openly sexual and sometimes it's part of the job description, yet, despite this, they still remain individuals with thoughts and feelings and ideas. Those things don't go away when one poses for "PlayBoy."

Sexuality and humanity are not mutually exclusive concepts. And if a jerk ever treats people in the Adult Entertainment Industry in a manner that dehumanizes them, then the issue lies with that individual jerk, not the sex workers, playboy models or cam girls. We shouldn't strive to bar women from certain legal actions because they lead to arousal. We should strive to change the notion that, because a woman can ignite sexual feelings, she is to be reduced to an object and treated poorly.

You may see an object, but I just see a nude human being, who is comfortable in her sexuality...and dare I say sexy? ;)

Anyway, I leave you with some wisdom from Atheist/ Feminist author, and one hell of a porn star, Nina Hartley from her interview with "The Humanist":

"In a nutshell: my body, my rules. Other women don’t get to tell me what’s “right” for me, just as no imam, rabbi, priest or minister gets to tell me what to do with my body. You don’t know better than I do what I need, so don’t presume to. If I need your help, I’ll ask for it, thank you very much."
