"It is related to a harem, and is a place of cruelty, debauchery and odalisques."
Can someone tell me why exactly cruelty? At worst its a place to have sex in... just not cruelty. I'll change that... LeinaD natipaC 16:32, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

- "At worst its a place to have sex"? Let's see, the women in the harem were generally slaves as were the attendants who probably did not volunteer to be castrated. Isn't it at least possible there was cruelty involved?
How is the word "Seraglio" pronounced, and should we include that at the heading or not? Sylocat 17:12, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
- pronounce as: Sera leo (the g is silent) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:06, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
- I don't. They are two separate topics. Beorhtric 10:25, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Both Kizlar Agha and Kapi Agha redirect here, but the article doesn't address those terms or appear to be related to them in any way. I think that's bad and something should be done about it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:57, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
