Paying for Sex in the Philippines: One Man Tells All


A Note from the Editorial Team: When we first received this post we faced a quandary: While we do not in any way shape or form wish to promote or glorify sex tourism we do strive to provide a platform for those willing to express an opinion. It was on this basis that we decided to publish the following article. Please note that the opinions express by the contributing author do not necessarily reflect those of the site or it’s staff

The Philippines is an island nation in South East Asia. With 7,107 islands and beautiful scenery, it has all the hallmarks of a tropical paradise. The Philippines is also a Catholic country colonised by the Spanish who brought their religion with them. You’d think that a Catholic country would be inhibited, repressed and boring. The reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

After 15 hours sitting in a plane, I walked into the humid city of Manila, capital city of the Philippines. It was 9:30pm. The city roared around me like only Asian metropolises  can. In the distance, motorcycle engines revved and distant dance music throbbed. I caught a cab and found my friends in a bar. We drank, talked and laughed. Around midnight, we left.

The next morning, we began the journey to the islands. We zoomed past towering coconut trees, green rice fields and rickety motorcycles on the highway. After a few hours, we climbed onto a wooden boat to cross to the island. Bright blue water reflected the bright blue sky above.

That night, I got my first taste of Filipino nightlife. Put simply, it was absolutely outrageous. If you have ever envied rockstars for their raving female fans, you will LOVE the Philippines.

“In the Philippines, you’re a rockstar without being a rockstar.”

What do I mean by that? You’ll have more opportunities to get laid than time to make it happen. For example, take the bars near where I’m currently living. I walk in. Instantly, I’m approached by gorgeous Filipino girls. They smile. They chat. They flirt.

Of course, they’re doing it to make money. These girls are prostitutes. For as little as 2000 pesos ($50 USD), you can take one of these gorgeous girls home for a whole night. You can even grab two girls. Or three. I even heard of one guy taking 10 girls. In the Philippines, you’re only limited by your imagination.

One thing that blew me away when I first arrived was how normal the whole deal was. You walk into the bar, you buy a drink and various girls approach. Some are outgoing and flirty while others are shy and refuse to speak. Some of the girls are forced to talk to you by their ‘mamasan’ (female pimp) while some will chase you around the bar.

While all this craziness is going on beside you, numerous girls strut their stuff on the podium. It’s like any strip club back home, only the girls don’t get naked.

When you find a girl you like, you give half the arranged amount (1000 pesos) to the mamasan. You grab the girl’s hand and leave. You’ll give the other half to the girl in the morning.

It’s up to you what to do now. You can go straight back to your hotel and get it on. You can hit up another bar for another girl. You can go dancing at the disco.

“The main thing to understand is that you now have a girlfriend for the night. That’s what it feels like – it doesn’t feel like you have paid for sex.”

It feels like you have a Filipina girlfriend. It’s hard to explain. Visit the Philippines and experience it yourself.

To those who scoff at prostitutes and refuse to go near them, please stop. It’s not just the prostitutes – it’s practically all Filipina girls. These girls are poor. Not “can’t buy a bus ticket poor”, but “can’t find food for dinner” poor.

Because of this, if you’re a foreign guy, you hold a winning lottery ticket. You are a walking dollar sign and you’re a ticket out of poverty and desolation. This means that you attract attention. In the Philippines, you’re the prize.

Besides, you have a lot to offer these girls, even if you don’t wind up marrying them. At the very least, you’ll be adding excitement to their lives.

You can meet girls anywhere here. On the internet. In cafes. At the mall. In bars. Some of them are bar-girls, but most of them are normal girls. So long as you’re not a complete retard, you can date whoever you want. If you wanted to sleep with 3 different girls a day for an entire year, you could do it in the Philippines.

Debauchery-aside, it is refreshing to live among people who are more relaxed about sex in the Western world. All too often, we let movies, music and society condition us to think and act in certain ways when it comes to sex and relationships.

I think that to some extent, we have forgotten who we are as sexual beings. Like animals, we all just want to “do it like they do on the discovery channel”…
