Sex in Georgia

By on February 2, 2016

 

I was single again when I decided to go to Georgia for longer. My friends, the dating experts for divorcees, welcomed that with a smirk and a question how I was going to handle these things. Some of my buddies were quite convinced I would go for multiple affairs with some beautiful and mysterious women of the East. And some of them even wanted my advice before their potential “sex tour” to Georgia.

I had no fixed plan. I had no ready answers. I didn’t want to be like Hank Moody – just drink, smoke and bang everything what moves. A sort of Polish-Georgian international intercourse, if you know what I mean. Quite the contrary. I was like a bearded monk aspiring to be the next orthodox saint. I didn’t believe my Father when he told me: “You’re 30 now. The best 10 years of your life is now. Make the most of it!”. I was working, sightseeing, daydreaming and writing about Georgian society, history, culture, relationships.

Planet Georgia

I was watching all those Georgian women in Tbilisi, Batumi, Kutaisi or in the country. I was observing and writing about their relationships, jobs and challenges they take on. That’s how “Love in Georgia” (published only on PolishGeorgian site) was born. You can treat this text as an introduction to the topic of interest of all liberated and spoiled inhabitants of the filthy West. Sex in Georgia. A taboo, a myth, something, nothing? Does it exist?

It seems that the sexual revolution has not reached Georgia. Its last stop was in Transcaucasia – the outside world and maybe in capital city – Tbilisi. In Georgia there’s no sexual freedom like in “old” Europe or debauchery that is so well-known in the western world. Georgian women wear modest clothes and many families think they should be “used” mostly for child-bearing. After fulfilling their role as mothers, there is no need to keep the sexual relation. At least that’s how it works for women. Men are a different kettle of fish. Probably most of them have some “adventures” outside the family home.

It’s very hard to be a woman in Georgia. It’s hard to live being ensnared in such prudish, conservative and chauvinistic society.

It’s enough to go to any Georgian city, town or church. You’ll see mostly young women there. Dressed in conservative and “safe” clothes. No overdoing it, no low necks, no sex appeal. Men look totally different. A lot  of them are Macho types sporting gold neck chains and paunches. Sometimes the view is funny to see True Caucasian Warriors in old banger. Focused on chasing European female tourists, luring them with their mythical, Georgian charm.

Sex in Georgia

The Internet is full of the buzz created by expat women and female volunteers from Europe: they usually claim everywhere they go, they are being hit on by randy Georgians. The women have told stories about taxi drivers who repeatedly tried to ask them out or were bragging about their affairs with Russian and Ukrainian girls.

In Georgia, a rumour has it that all Slav girls are unsatisfied sex-machines, and even Samantha Jones (“Sex and the City”) is an innocent angel when compared to them. Even young boys know that!

Well, men are allowed to enjoy themselves during their teenage years. Very often their caring fathers buy sex with prostitutes before their sons turn 18. Paid sex in Georgia is readily available. Simple. All you need to do is to go to one of Tbilisi districts, Saburtalo, or somewhere near the main road. Many Thai massage salons in the centre offer the exact same services. They are located at the back of Rustaweli Avenue. Not sure how to start? Ask a taxi driver or go to the seaside: Batumi or Gonio. There you will find plenty of call girls whose main target are Turkish tourists. A few years ago the media mentioned about paid sex in Georgia that most of the girls are from Uzbekistan or Dagestan, sometimes from Chechnya.

Contrary to men, women in Georgia usually don’t get a change to try the forbidden fruit; they usually don’t engage in relationships in their teenage years, but are directly transferred from their family homes to their husbands’ homes. There is nothing in between. It’s seems that a husband is often the one and only sexual partner in their lives. Many women get pregnant when they are 13 or 14 and this is still a problem at Georgian countryside. Young Georgian newlyweds don’t care about the rubber. No sexual education, no protection. However, Viagra had been a bestseller in pharmacies. At least it was so till September 2014 when the blue pill ws still an over-the-counter medicine.

That is why so many young and talented Georgian women prefer to get good education, a scholarship and study abroad. It’s the only chance to break the chain, at least for a while. However, they are so much attached to their homeland that they always come back. As a result, those young and educated women go back to their traditional families, assume the traditional female roles and then raise another generation of men who will dominate women in the future. A never-ending story.

In 2014 and 2015 in Tbilisi held a few conferences on domestic violence and women’s rights. These issues need to be discussed, but the idea is still quite new to some people. Also the Orthodox church officials’ reaction to that remains unknown.

It’s not easy to say what a man should do to successfully hit on a Georgian girl. The local women think of foreigners as a temporary and changing element. They are aware that they don’t want to stay there for good. Georgian women don’t think much about us – they assume we are the same as their men. Also the Georgian people believe they should defend national integrity and strive to keep genetic continuity. Not having much choice the expat men and women date each other only. A closed circle.

Sex in Georgia. Fast romance, young couples, fast divorce. Nowadays everything is changing and everything is liquid. And plenty of small children, even thoughall the Georgian institutions claim the population is shrinking and more than 160 towns are endangered. It’s really hard to imagine an average Georgian woman as a promiscuous vamp.

Beautiful Caucasian girls are like creatures from another planet. Innocent, pure, unaware.

I still don’t know if it’s good or bad.

        So I guess you are publishing your thoughts, as a writer to writer I would suggest you write that in the beginning not to make other people read your thoughts while searching for real facts.
        I’ve leaved in this country for 3 years, even got Georgian name there, I made “real” researches on traditions and actual activities in 6 regions of this country and most of the things you say are biased and shadowed views and nothing more.

    As a Georgian guy I find this post interesting, but there is nothing new in it. First of all, it should be mentioned that there was a great influence of USSR on Georgian people (because as you know – “there was no sex in USSR”) and another important factor is the traditional mindset. Everyone agrees that being a “Georgian woman” is tough, however the time is changing and the next generation is more developed in this aspect. For instance, there was almost no night or “club” life in Georgia several years ago. Today you can notice a rapid growth of underground clubs (of course you can not compare it with Berlin or other European cities but that’s something for the start) which is a good sign.
    Just about 15 years ago, it was dangerous for a woman to walk on the streets alone after 10.00 P.M not mentioning the fact that wearing shoes on high heels or mini skirt was considered to be a “sin”. These days, you can see that there is more freedom which is a positive sign, so I would say that we are on a right path. I bet that in another 10 years there will be a totally different situation.

    Interesting post! I happened to be in Georgia this year and I met a lot of Georgian girls. Being 20, I probably had the chance to meet more women in their late teens. I actually met a girl aged about ~16 with whom I met up with for a coffee. She lives in Rustavi, but goes to school in Tbilisi (which is ~40 min away). She told me how in her age it’s a problem that many girls are getting pregnant and boys just want to date them for sex. These are not the marriages that you mentioned, this is just normal teenage relationship drama. While it may be a general rule that Georgian women/girls are prudish, I would definitely say that there are plenty of “liberated” girls, as long as you look for them.

    Yes, it is tough to be a woman in this country: you have to fight for freedom and equal respect with everyone: parents, taxi drivers, bosses, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours. etc. But we do fight and mostly we succeed. There is a whole new generation or two of Georgian women who do not get “transferred” from their parents’ homes to their husbands home; have normal sex lives and so on. And most women have good jobs and are financially independent.

    And when it comes to modest clothing: seriously, do you go out in Tbilisi?

    Hey, author, liked your story. It describes truth, I believe but in some cases.
    I’d add that we have cases when a boy is going very far from country, family and then a girlfriend is also following him in the migration. Then they’re getting married and living there. Why? Just because boy’s parents didn’t like a girl “for their boy”.
    But in some moments I thought you’re creating “legends”. I mean male and female faces in a church. Often that’s facade, believe me… But that’s what you saw and probably believed, so, what can I say…
    And one more, as you’re saying Georgian women are going abroad and coming back, rising boys who will dominate women in the future and it’s an endless chain? No, no and no! Have you speak some Georgian girls who’re studying abroad or have come back already and continuing their life with families? Do you know what they’re thinking? How was their life abroad and how they changed after that? I missed this part from your story. Thank you

    Cześć! I say this to draw attention to the problematic pairing of ‘Hi’ and ‘Gamarjoba’ in your description. Which is a symptomatic manifestation of what is wrong with this particular entry. The chief problem here is not the Orientalist perception of the sexual landscape of Georgia, (which is super problematic and not really worth taking apart) but the notion, both explicit and implicit, that the West is a space of sexual liberation, which is simply untrue. You are wrong on both your ‘Eastern’ and ‘Western’ fronts. Mostly because the line between these imaginary spaces is fluid to non existent. Literally the very same picture you paint about Georgia can be painted of Poland (I only bring Poland into this because you both mention it as your place of residence and simultaneously efface it by substituting it with a generic notion of the West.) In other words, you could say that Poland is relatively sexually backward compared to its ‘West,’ oh say, Germany. I am trying to draw attention to the very real superiority complex inherent in this post which stems out of imaginary!!! cultural geography. I would advise a bit more self reflection before all your future ‘anthropological’ endeavors. And lest I leave you hanging, here are a few suggestions, because ‘personal observation’ will simply not do as the basis of the aforementioned self reflection. Start with Foucault’s The History of Sexuality and his ideas about the ways in which the Victorians (and those before) shaped the pan-European sexual consciousness to create a repressive system which effects Europe and the world to this day. (Freud is also useful here but let’s not overburden ourselves) Then, move to Susan Layton’s excellent Russian Literature and Empire, and hopefully you will see the ways in which you are reproducing an orientalist gender bound narrative of sexuality in the Caucasus, something with a much more storied past than this post. And finally, you might want to Google Zizek’s video on the fluidity of the European boundary. (I’m too tired now to do it for you) This is the notion that for you Georgia is the backward East and Poland is Europe, and for a German Poland is the backward East and Germany is Europe and so on until you reach the Western shore of Britain, or hey, maybe America. If you have the time throw in some Said in there. The point is to think about how superiority is produced and reproduced through imaginary geographies. And when you are done reading and reflecting, your expression of your personal experience might gain some much needed context. Otherwise, it is in danger or retaining a purely masturbatory character. Best of luck!

      Thank You Shota for Your essay but this is only a blog, not the University :) It’s great You mentioned about anthropology, I studied anthropology of culture. There’s nothing in my article about it that Poland or everywhere else is better than Georgia. I don’t think that “european” and american sex revolution and side effects are better than everything in the “East”. This is not a style of my “way of thinking” – black and white, good or bad, East or West. No borders. Bigger picture. Good luck for You too.

    Very interesting article. From the Georgian women’s point of view it’s absolutely right and I’m surprised how well are the details perceived by the foreigner. It’s a very problematic issue, even if people know that the way they live is wrong, they can’t dare to change anything, especially it touches to women. To me I always have argues and fight with my parents, because they still think that 20-25 years old girl (before she gets married) must be living with them even if she has her own income; and they can’t realize that she’s an individual and has her own life. I don’t know how to fight with it globally. I’m 25 years old and it’s 2 years I live alone, they still ask me to return to home, that it’s wrong that I am not living with them and I don’t have morals. The first problem I think is in family, who forces female gender to be a slave and the only solution for the first time will be to be a rebel against this kind of family and then to society. It would be interesting what you will advice us to do with it, even an article would be interesting how this happen in Poland, for example. I don’t want to stop contacting with parents or to be rude with them, but I can’t see the other solution.

    Hello Nodar, you must be kidding, first off half of the story is based on personal experiences. I lived more than 18 years abroad, came back in 2014 and I realized that sexually for exp. Tbilisi, Gudauri, Kutaisi, Adjara ( Qobuleti, Batumi, Sarpi etc.) are almost at the same level as most of the European countries. It’s extremely easy to fined sexual partners and many of them are quite experienced, However, the first part ( the getting to know part ) is a little harder than in Europe,
    I could recommended few places to go if you want to, that would solve your problems and it might give you a different perspective about Georgian ladies :).

    Now to the last part, you’ve met me a few times, next time I’ll see you I’ll approach you so we can talk.

    While I recognize that the article does contain certain amount of truth and Georgia is quite away from being named as sexually liberated, still can’t get over the fact how much cliches and oriental views you use.
    To start of, can we just agree that you and every other foreign man should stop treating your arrival in Georgia as a potential sexual liberation! I am sorry to state the obvious: if no one wants to have sex with you that does not ultimately make this place sexually repressed and in the need of your liberation! After-all if your entire soul-searching experience was targeted to nail some Georgian girls(which it seems was) and that did not happen, this is not the problem of Georgia but rather yours.
    Also, I simply can’t skip the oriental phrases you use to describe Georgian women ” beautiful and mysterious woman of East” ” “Beautiful Caucasian girls are like creatures from another planet. Innocent, pure, unaware” seriously? Typical western attitude towards East and poor us unaware mysterious women. Why did you even come to Georgia? I am sure you had the same view before entering the country, but I assume with an ambition to sexually liberate us.
    One thing is true, getting laid for EVERYONE is not easy here, why? Well, because Georgian woman have much more to offer than sex, they are smart, successful, ambitious! If you have nothing to offer than your western oriental views no wonder that would be a turn off! After-all plain sex without any emotional connection is the most boring type of sex that there exists.
    Lastly, I am a foreign educated Georgian woman, I never tried to leave Georgia to break any chains, I did that far before with my education and ability to self-realize in my profession. I came back with the same ambitions and goals, to help myself and in that process my country! I have many friends who have done the same. BTW, I have sex with whomever I please but have certain standards of attraction, which involves person being interesting, that does not make me or any of my friends sexually repressed, that makes me smart and in total control of my body!

    Hello Nodar! Firstly, compliments on your blog, your posts depict Georgia and our culture in a very interesting way! It’s fascinating to read your posts. Secondly, I quite enjoyed this particular piece. The truth is, sex is still taboo in Georgia, and more so in the villages as you very well acknowledged. Reading all the aggressive comments was quite amusing, it shows that Georgian society is in denial of the existing problems. Yes, women nowadays are more independent and knowledgeable and tend to lead “western” type of lifestyle (again, mostly in Tbilisi). Some, who can afford it, even move out and live on their own. Yes, sex does happen, but mostly in a hush-hush manner. Yes, there are many who strive to break the chain, and opt for a more liberal lifestyle, yet the concept of moving in prior to marriage is still unacceptable for the society as a whole. Every time the Ministry of Education plans to introduce sexual education in schools our society raises with aggressive threats to overthrow the government and the Ministry is made to postpone the plans. Not to mention unwillingness to respect the rights of or even admit the existence of LGBT. But that’s a whole separate issue. One of the readers blamed USSR. That is ridiculous. Even without USSR Georgian society has always been extremely conventional and traditional in its beliefs. Church and its strict preaching further complicates the situation. My friend recently got married and the priest gave her a whole lecture after the ceremony how she must be obedient to her husband in all matters. We laughed hard and long about it. And then there is a whole separate group of Georgian guys (quite big one too!) who only want to marry virgins in the end. I would say one thing though, there are many young Georgian women who are open to relationships with expats, both long and short term. I myself dated and eventually got married to an American and quite a few of my friends did too. It’s just a matter of meeting the right person at the right time. :)

    I am female from Georgia and I agree with u, great observation. This post might get sharp responses from Georgian males and Its obvious why. The situation in Georgia is exactly as u described. Men can have normal sexual life before marriage, women can’t and if they do they are labeled as s..ts, majority of men searches for virgin girl to marry. I can even tell u more my friend was abandoned because her boyfriend found out she had sex with another men before she met him! That situation is changing slowly and it will take generations before it will but Georgia is getting there.

    You don’t even broach the über-complicated, extra-sensitive topic of gay sex (both male and female) in here. In some ways, it’s easier to get laid here if you’re gay than if you’re straight – don’t even have to pay. 😉

    I think you are correct on some of the issues, but, I would draw your attention on some aspects I think you did not get right: 1) educated Georgian girls coming back and raising another gen of morons. I strongly disagree, as those educated girls are the basis for change in our society, they push forward the agenda for women’s rights and other sensitive issues. I know as I have a privilege of one of them being my wife :) and 2) dressing up in safe clothes, may be true for villages and rural areas but not in the cities. Otherwise I agree on most of the points raised in the article.

    I think your image of Georgia is a bit exaggerated because you did not expect anything like that when you where planning to visit Georgia. To be honest, many of the issues that you have described are way less visible and disturbing than they were just about 5-6 years ago. The public image has not changed much, but real attitude did. Tbilisi and other relatively big cities already went past the usual image of woman, but problem does remain in smaller villages. I cannot say much about southern region as it is mostly inhabited by Azeris and Gypsies, but rest of Georgian villages do have major change in their attitude. If you are seeking for sex, go to bigger cities. You can hit on nearly any girl in Tbilisi, Batumi, Rustavi or Kutaisi. You might find it a bit troublesome in Telavi, Gori or Zestafoni, but you will understand how things work there only after you spend at least couple of months living in those cities. Marneuli? I would avoid that place at all!
    Young girls have no problems with having sex anytime they want, although they do keep an image of a saint for elderly people.

    I’m agree with you(a little bit), but it seems to be a bit superficial the way you wrote this article (no offenses, just my opinion). In fact, many Georgian girls have a regular sex with their partners or with some random guys, but they prefer to hide it, because of some traditions (apparently, or because they’re just cunts), and you’re right it has to be changed. Anyways, I hope things will change and you’ll have the opportunity to taste some cool and sexy georgian girls before you leave!

    Well, when Georgian girls refuse to have sex with “Europeans” just because of EU passports we are accused to be closed minded and so on. Lately, I see quite several “experts on Georgian sexual matters” making conclusions. This is one of such conclusions full of stereotypes created even before arrival to Georgia.

    I don’t think I’ve ever written a comment on a blog post, but it’s very hard to resist now. You seem like an interesting person, but your post is very offensive. You just called me the “creatures from another planet”. How would you feel if someone said that about you? :) Do you think you are not generalising? If you do, I’d suggest you take a sociology class, or at least try to look up definitions of words, before you use them.
    Yes, Georgia is more traditional than other countries in Europe, but that doesn’t mean we are from another planet. Yes, new generation goes to study abroad, but not to “break the chain” and have free sex which they can’t have here, but to get an education.
    You say it’s hard to be a woman in Georgia. Well I’ll tell you the news – it’s hard to be a woman everywhere in the world. Just like it’s hard to be black, or homosexual. Trust me on that, I am a woman, I’ve lived in many countries in Europe, as well as US. But more than that, I read a lot and gender issues are part of my educational background and my everyday job. If I were you, I’d try not to write things that I don’t know.
    My kind advise to you – do some research, read some more, get a little more education and try to choose right words before you write things, post things and say things.
    It’s true, everyone is free to say whatever they wish to, just don’t make fool out of yourself. But of course, if you want to, you can do that as well.
    P.S. I agree with some of the people who replied you here – the fact that you can’t get laid, doesn’t mean that women don’t have sex in general. :)
    Sorry for a very long comment. I just couldn’t resist.
    Have a nice day.

      Nino, there’s nothing offensive in poetic „creatures from another planet”. This is really cute comment. If someone said it about me I will be proud cause I live in my own world and nobody will change that. A lot of people tried :) Thanks You’re so worry about my sex life and when and where I get laid. Nice to hear it! :) Have a nice day too.

    I appreciate that you write this post in respectful and less judgmental manner towards the girls. Though, it is pretty much true what you say. Most of the fellows here bring different perspectives that times have changed and most girls are independent etc. But lets face the truth, who is liberated? those who have certain privileges to access education, information, who may even belong to different social strata, whose parents have privilege of being ‘educated’ and independent, Liberation comes for those also able to afford travel, to have different opinion and are given certain freedom to be financially independent (though, financial independence is not only to have a job, but to what extend one can sustain her life, without living at parents;s place for instance). What about domestic violence that is sky high? most of us even did not knew that certain abuse that Georgia women are exposed to is a typical violence, bulling and violation of our rights.

    1. There’s nothing bad in majority of Georgian women being modest.. I respect that they don’t roll in somebody’s arms right after the first meet, that’s how it should be. Sorry but your ironic attitude about sex life in Georgia seems like it goes much deeper than just “observation and research”, I get impression that this article was written by a desperate guy who failed to have normal sex life in this country..

    but still, it’s big mistake and very dangerous to forget about every “MEDEA” which sleeps in each “pure angel”…)))

    Very entertaining and very true. I mean, yeah there’s also the new generation, changes, blah blah, but what you have written here (as much as I want to use my Georgian Pride and deny all of it) is sadly true. Yes, there are strong independent women in Georgia with a different mindset than others, however, “others” are more in quantity.
    Anywho, I am Georgian and I approve 😀
