It was a simple one with her shirt unbuttoned, her bra exposed underneath. She did it in response to a thread encouraging newcomers to post their photos. There are 56 replies to that thread, a glorious cascade of diverse female bodies in various states of undress. Fair or dark-skinned, slim or chubby, small or big-boobed, the list of juxtapositions goes on. One thing is clear: all of these women are in control of how they are presenting themselves. The influence of the church runs deep in the Philippines, from its opposition to same-sex marriage to the limiting roles it assigns women, and its potentially damaging policies towards family planning.

Despite increasing sexual liberalization, virginity and its loss persist as contested and highly gendered concepts in many parts of Asia. According to theories in feminism and sexuality studies, virginity may be socially constructed as either a gift, a stigma, an act of worship, or a process. We synthesize findings from quantitative sources and original qualitative data from focus groups and interviews with Filipino women and men. Filipina women expressed disapproval of sex for unmarried women, but less for unmarried men, and placed less importance on male virginity. The evidence indicates the presence of a sexual double standard and supports the argument that women themselves may endorse cultural belief systems that restrict female sexuality. Female virginity was dominantly constructed either as a gift an embodied resource given by women to men or, more often, as a prize to be claimed by men from women within the context of heterosexual marriage.
Lesslie Polinesia. Age: 23. Hello there I'm standing aline staring at my surroundings, but my mind keeps drifting back to how good a man is when we are together. It's the simple things about man that turn me inside out; but, when we kiss, I burn raw... deep down inside. I crave that next kiss; the one that always leads to more.
PIP: Very little is known about Filipino adolescents. Professional opinion varies enormously as to what is to be considered normal and abnormal. What brings on puberty is a controversial topic.
Sexuality in the Philippines encompasses sexual behavior , sexual practices, and sexual activities exhibited by men and women of the Philippines past and the present. It covers courtship strategies for attracting partners for physical and emotional intimacy , sexual contact, sexual reproduction , building a family, and other forms of individual interactions or interpersonal relationships, as set and dictated by their culture and tradition, religion , beliefs, values and moral convictions, psychology , foreign influences, and other related factors. Although Westernization and globalization have influenced Filipinos who live in the metropolitan areas, the overall culture remains quite conservative in its sexual values. There are provisions and policies in the constitution of the Philippines which promulgates that the sexual act should happen only within the framework of married life between a man and woman, because this personal human expression is solidly connected to the family unit and to society as a whole. As a predominantly Christian country, the Philippines considers that the only sexual behavior morally and legally acceptable and appropriate is heterosexual intercourse within a monogamous marriage, with the exception of polygamous marriage as practiced by some Filipino minority groups and by Muslim communities in the Mindanao , southern, and southwestern regions of the Philippines, as long as the men of these population are financially capable of supporting their multiple wives.
