In the pharmacies around the brothels in Karaköy, Istanbul, there used to be a poster advertising Viagra. It showed a pretty, perky girl sitting up in bed next to an exhausted-looking gentleman. She says, “Hadi! Bi’ daha!” (“Come on! Once more!”)

In March, 2014, there was an election. The biggest party, Akparti, had a massive poster campaign. In the electorates in which Akparti’s candidate was the incumbent, huge billboards went up saying, “Bi’ Daha [insert name of electorate]”.

As in, ‘Why not let us fuck you again?’ The pharmacies got a visit from a party official and the next day, the Viagra posters disappeared.
