Get Lewd, Philippines

Filipino social media was all abuzz when pictures of a Liberal Party birthday celebration were spread all over the place. At this celebration of Congressman Benjie Agarao, sexy dancing girls called the Playgirls suddenly came up on the stage and did things that should have been done only in shady strip clubs. It was claimed to be a gift from MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, which he later on denied.

Tolentino’s reactions seem to betray an inability to realize that sexy performances are considered immoral by other Filipinos.

Sadly, though, this is only the latest among the government gaffes where lewd shows have become part of activities. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is guilty of holding a similar show one time.

There was this town celebration where there was a bodybuilding contest. But something was wrong with the picture:

Ironic_Marian_backdrop

Sadly, this contradicts what one of our most controversial politicians have claimed about the country.

titosottoconservativetayo

Yes, it seems Filipinos, when they have a special event, don’t know anymore how to celebrate with decency. It’s like a stripper show is part of “normal celebrations.” If we have sexy dancing girls on TV, who, knows, we might have it at children’s parties, too.

But onto theories. The talk is that politicians as well as police are paid to protect sex dens from closure. The presentation of Playgirls at Agarao’s birthday is probably payback for something like this. But even if it was not like this, it is certainly embarrassing that “dignified” politicians would turn to kalaswaan as their preferred form of entertainment.

Of course, sex dens have been all over the place. There was Alibangbang that existed for a long time in Cubao (it became Bangbangali and moved). And all over Cubao, as in Ermita, Marikina, Makati, indeed wherever there are Filipinos there are likely to be sex dens. When the American bases were around, Filipinos in the area were only happy to sell their bodies for the Joes’ dollars. Yet even when the Americans left, those joints are still around (as in the case of Jeffrey Laude). Anyone remember Adam Carolla highlighting that the Philippines is known for Sex Tourism?

But think about that. We not only have a nation whose women are commercially sexualized, but that sexualization exists alongside the fact that many Filipinas abroad are sex workers. Remember when there was trouble in Libya and trouble started in Syria, many Filipinas who were at risk of being caught in the crossfire were not only helpers but even sex workers. Many of them are even undocumented.

This episode with a Liberal Party “party” has served to remind me of the dire straits many Filipino sex workers are in, and that this is common among Filipinos abroad. Consider the headlines below I gathered to demonstrate the point.

The horror of being a child sex worker in the Philippines exposed as boxer Manny Pacquiao joins fight against vile trade that destroys lives of 100,000 Filipino’s youth

The Fatherless Children of Filipino Sex Workers

The Innocent Victims Abandoned in Sin City

500K Filipinos engage in Prostitution (2013 article)

What I learned by being a Migrant Sex Worker

With all the above, I doubt the priests can rightly call the Philippines a “god-fearing nation.”

This only lends support to my theory that the Filipino identity is actually centered on anything dysfunctional. If you are non-dysfunctional, have healthy control over your sex life and aren’t clamoring for “malaswang” shows like the above, then you might be branded as unpatriotic.

That many people are outraged by this gives hope that we can still turn things around. But with politicians taking lewd shows and treating them like normal things, we can be sure that the people in place right as “leaders” are not leading at all. They’re just pandering to constituents with connections (KKK) and not doing anything to solve the problem. If you have an official like Tolentino who says “motorists are free to video MMDA enforcers” one day and “Motorists who video enforcers can be charged” on another, and then comes up with a show like the above, you know we shouldn’t take this moronism quietly.

Tolentino is a Sex Pervert. He wants his Sex Perversion to be on the news. So, he sent Sexy Dancers, to Agarao, as his birthday gifts. Like his fellow sex pervert, Agarao was pleased to exhibit his Birthday gifts to his guests, who were also sex perverts. Agarao was very much happy to let his guests, be entertained by the sexy grinding/dancing girls. Roxas and Aquino , may have been pleased also, by the entertainment. Our media is not the only one perverted, already. The Minds of our political leaders; most politicians and most public officials of the Aquino administration;… Read more »

This is what I always say. ‘The Philippines is the Mexico of the Far East. Similar in self-serving and arrogant attitude and way of life—influenced by the Spanish aristocracy.’

@Aeta: I have some Mexican friends. And, we compare the behaviors of our public officials and people. They are almost similar. Corruption in Mexico is prevalent. The Drug Lords buy these Mexican public officials. Sexy dancing girls are not as widespread in Mexico, as in our country. The Roman Catholic Church influence on the Mexican people is still strong. They are devoted to the: “Our Lady of Guadalupe”. The mother of Jesus Christ, allegedly appeared to a certain: Juan Diego, and left her portrait on Juan Diego’s “tilma”. This happened in the 18th century. The “tilma” and the Virgin Mary’s… Read more »

@68Toro007hayden9999.99,

Yup, it’s very very similar. Corrupt country, corrupt people, corrupt culture, and corrupt value system. Both country’s people only means of escape is to ‘cross the border’ to the U.S—legally or illegally (Mexico); or, working as OFWs or migrating (legally or illegally, as well) to other countries (Philippines).

You clearly do not know anything about Mexico. There are similarities, but the PH is in a worst position in almost anything. And the arrogance they display is a result of the native social status imbalance. Spanish aristocracy do not make stupid displays, usually.

This no longer has anything to do with the Spanish and American colonizers. This has something to do with the colonized minds who think they are now bosses and could do anything with impunity. And being sex perverts, they do not care what the public thinks. It is bastusan of the public without any equivalent in the world.

It is a very sick society. I recall going to a wedding reception where I found myself sitting in a table of 12. Four apparently knew each other, and as gathered from the conversation, they were suppliers to AFP, PNP and DPWH. Eight of us in the table ended listening to the conversation of the four. The conversation came to them comparing notes about a certain captain who was assigned to a critical position in the Purchasing unit of AFP. The captain was top of the class in PMA and quite idealistic. He was a problem to them because he… Read more »

30% are whores? Its more like 10% are not whores.

They cost more like 50K.

@Dr. Hefmore Weiner

“Its more like 10% are not whores.”
I will not argue, you may actually be closer to the truth.

“They cost more like 50K.”
If you are talking of “real value”, I will have to agree with you 100%. But, because I was shocked at the amounts, since then I have already been able to check with two guys who are on the know about these things. The peso amounts are correct: 500k to 1m.

I am shocked if those amounts are true.

That would mean that EVERYTHING is 100% out of control.

@Add: That’s they call the : “soft/tender touch”. It is not done only here in the Philippines. It is done worldwide. The U.S./C.I.A. use it to “blackmail” leaders. The Russian former KGB(now NKVD), called these: “baits or swallows”. Pretty girls, who are indeed spies. You can view it, on the movie of James Bond: “From Russia with Love”…how these “high priced beauties” operate, for their clients. After all, if you are a hot blooded male.

Yes…Tolentino and Agarao are just showing and giving hints to the Public, what they are getting regularly from government contractors. And how they are spending your tax money…it is very disgusting on these evil people. However, it is the way they are doing at present…The Aquino administration is full of corrupt and sex perverts…

I heard they turned a blind eye to it. Their heads are far deep up their asses that they can’t see what’s ahead of them. They are probably busy stuffing chicken nuggets up their ass too. It’s too funny that the outrage is mild.

Que Horror. Whether or not it is a gift or not does not really matter. It should not have been done in the first place. I don’t quite approve calls for Tolentino to resign for some reason at before. But his frequent absence at work and now this, I think he should have not been given the MMDA chair at all. So I’ll say it, Mr Francis Tolentino, as a tax payer and your “boss”, I want you to tender your resignation immediately. I also request that you reconsider your plan to run as senator. Same goes for Mr. Benjie… Read more »

We all have a perverted side but this is just beyond perversion and stupidity.

I don’t get why some people are surprised that I only voted 1 person in the last national election and only two in last local elections. It’s simple. they don’t deserve my vote.

Unfortunately the Philippines is a sexualized society, meaning that the only thing that matters is lust. Ika nga “sex sells” and it’s very sad that Filipino society is indeed sexualized. From noontime shows to simple conversations, sex is the number one topic. I’m not saying sex is bad. It’s actually a basic human need. But it has not to be perverted or making it an obsession. Sexualization reduces a person into a sex object meaning he or she is only worthy if she’s oozing with sex appeal. Her intelligence and inner character become useless. The American Psychological Association defines sexualization… Read more »

Kung may natitira pang paggalang sa sarili at sa partido nila, dapat pinapaalis na ni PNoy ang mga pasimuno at sangkot dito. Paumanhin ngunit ang mga ganitong gawain, lalo’t sa isang samahan nang mga nais mamumuno, ay di dapat hina-hayaang tumagal pa at baka pamarisan pa.
