‘Coz we all just wanna be porn stars

I’m not wont to be easily swayed by the bandwagon; even so let me write something about the not-so-recent media hullabaloo involving a celebrity cosmetic surgeon and several women immortalized in a collection of, according to reports, around forty sex videos that documented his virility and talent in giving cunnilingus, of course the favor has to be returned, and these women giving the exhibitionist doctor a head, excuse my language, fellatio sounds more dignified, I believe.

Sex in the Philippine society has always been hushed, downplayed, “subtle-ized”. This does not, however, preclude the fact that most Filipinos, if given a chance, would unleash their repressed sexuality, orchestrating it to an extent that approaches the tradition of the theater, the circus, the American wrestling. The advent of technology chipped off the rocks that kept the water behind the dam. Lo and behold! We’re flooded with sex videos, ‘scandals’ we call it. The secrecy and the clandestine nature of these acts, almost the criminal element of it, make them very popular.

Although the production value is often amateur-ish, the acrobatics not at all breath-taking, and the actors not consistently appealing, we are often drawn to them because they involve real people – people whom we want to shame because of their guts to publicize the most private aspect of one’s life; while at the same time we fancy the idea of us being in the video, of being the subject of the steamy acts, the object of a hidden public’s fantasy.

For inasmuch as we all want to be a rock star, being a porn star is next in line of our someday-I-want-to-be list albeit secretly.

We ostracize Hayden Kho because he has done something we wished we could’ve done. Senator Revilla, a womanizer himself, expectedly spewed a fiery speech against the doctor, a fury more of an expression of defeat and envy than the aim of helping Katrina Halili and Kho’s victims. Revilla’s record of having the most number of conquered women in Philippine show business, second to his father, Revilla Sr., has been broken by an obscure boy toy of a plastic surgeon to the stars. What can be more humiliating than that?

It is pathetic how we use so much energy discussing this issue, a waste of precious airtime. We can just go silently with the case, punish Kho if indeed he erred, and go on with our lives.

After all sex, minus all the garb and frills, is just about having orgasm.

  1. Same here.I go against the current too.Dr.Kho did not leak those sex videos out for public consumption (which are already 2 years old, by the way). These were supposed to be his private sex diary. Eh mga usyosero at usyosera din naman ang karamihan sa atin kaya ayan pinagpipyestahan ang mga videos na iyan hanggang ngayon.Ho hum! I ve been there ,done that..and at 54, I know what it’s all about.
    I am a free spirit and I didnt think less of anyone involved in those videos.
    Kung tutuusin, mas malaki pa nga ang naging kasiraan ni Dr.Kho kaysa kay Ms.Katrina Halili kaya for sure, hindi siya ang nagpakalat ng sarili niyang videos. Ito namang si Ms.Halili, parang rape victim kung umarte eh nagenjoy naman siya ng todo.Tapos sasabihin binaboy siya. We all get what we deserve, that’s my motto in life.
    Magpakatotoo kayo..that’s all I can say to you (Bong Revilla, Ms.Halili ,Lolit ,et al).

  2. Hi John, the DVD is in great demand here, it was reportedly sold at P200 here is Penang. I just saw its headline in today’s local daily.
