I attended the Invitational Screening of Crisaldo Pablo's new digital movie "Quick Trip" together with some of the "movers and shakers" of Philippine Independent Cinema: Armando "Bing" Lao (Screenwriter of Serbis), Emman dela Cruz (director of "Sarongbanggi") and Raymond Lee (producer of "Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros).
The movie's lead character, Toffer Barretto was a refreshing and a sensitive actor while the other actor Andro Morgan will create cinematic history with his daring and actual ejaculation on screen! For sure, this controversial scene will be deleted in the film's regular commercial run.
Aside from the film's "historic" sexual act and several funny and realistic scenes, I find the narrative of the story simple and very cohesive making this digital feature Crisaldo Pablos's best film so far.
I took this photo of "Himala" from my phone at the Ishmael Bernal Gallery of the UP Film Institute. I have been a fan of this film even before I learned to appreciate the aesthetics of filmmaking.
The performance of Nora Aunor as she claimed "Walang Himala" was just so powerful for me. I was barely two years old when this was first shown. But the magic of that cinematic moment resounded to me way up into my adult life.
And even for that short moment, I think Nora Aunor should forever be a treasure in the history of Philippine Culture.

Tula ni Lex Bonife
Kagabi, maganda ako
Sa mga hiwa-hiwalay na hugis ng dilim
dahan-dahan akong naglalakad
Suot ang aking makulay at mapanuksong bikini,
Ang kanilang mga mata'y uhaw na sinusundan
Kagabi, maganda ako
Nilapitan ko ang isang lalakeng naghuhumindig ang mga braso at bisig
Ngumiti, nilapit ang kanyang mukha sa aking tenga.
Nanghina ang aking tuhod at ako ay napaluhod.
At dahan dahan kong hinarap ang kanyang malaking sikretong
tinatago ng malambot na tela ng kanyang boxer shorts
Kagabi, maganda ako
Dahil ayon sa aking 6 footer at morenong kalaro,
Kahit dumadami na ang mga lalakeng pilit na inaaninag
Walang pa rin tigil sa pag-ungol ng "Shit, pare"
Ako'y nagising yakap ang aking unan
Matigas ang ari, ako'y tumayo at humarap sa salamin
Binati ko ang kulubot na linya ng aking noo pati na rin
ang aking nagmamalaking tiyan
At ako'y ngumiti, ang sabi ko lang "Kagabi, maganda ako"

This interesting study about gay bashers was quickly mentioned in the book that I am currently reading “Phantoms of the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind”, a brilliant book on experiments on neurology by V.S. Ramachandran.
In this study, the “straight gay bashers” and the “straight men who didn’t have problems with gay men” were asked to watch a “Man to Man” Pornography. And the result? The gay bashers significantly have bigger erections than the straight men who are not prejudiced.
If you’re curious how erections were measured, they used a device called penile plethysmograph, which measures changes in the circumference of the penis.
I’m thinking, what could this study actually imply?
First, since penile erection could both be a conscious or unconscious effort, it is possible that the formation of prejudice against gay men could simply be an unconscious effort -- meaning even before the “gay feelings” among “gay bashers” could be acknowledged, these “gay feelings” could have been repressed at an unconscious level therefore, their prejudice isn’t something that they have created with full awareness.
Two gay men like me, should learn to understand the straight who overtly hate us just because we are gay. We need to create a friendly and caring atmosphere with them so eventually, they could learn to accept their highly probable hidden “gay feelings”.
Don’t you just love the idea? The straight men who hate us gay men, are essentially gay men themselves. They just need a little support, understanding and a lot of love.

Being an advocate of gay sex in media, I immediately found the opportunity to insert gay sex in this video.
Viva Hot Men Mcmiel Dennison and then a new member, Ethan Zulueta were chosen to do the gay scene. The video's director, Rico Gutierrez being a straight guy asked me to be the floor director for this gay sex scene as he felt Ill be more comfortable guiding the actors.
I coulc barely remember anything as it happened almost half a decade ago. But if there is one thing that I could assure everyone, Mcmiel's package was a gift from the heavens!(hehehe!)
Anyway, the video sold like a hotcake. But from the feedback from many people (especially the straight ones), they were disturbed by the gay sex scenes woven all thorughout the material.
So, in the next installment of the Sex Guru, the M2M gay sex was deleted.

About two days ago, I finished "Makawala" (To Escape), my fourth screenplay.
This film tackles many themes that I find interesting in our society: the incompetent public school education; the corruption of educational system even among teachers and students; family sexual abuse, pederasty and the diaspora of parents to become domestic helpers abroad.
This screenplay is for the new film of critically acclaimed director Paolo Villaluna (Selda, Ilusyon) and is scheduled for shoot next month.

* I am against unguided children being exposed to sexually explicit materials. Adult content and materials should be distributed properly to its intended audience and this must be strictly implemented by the government.
* I am clearly against the use of children in any pornographic materials and the exploitations of innocent adults in performing pornographic situations whether for private or public consumption that may be against their will.
* I am against the distribution of pornography peddled on the streets for everyone to see. (This is illegal, as these are all pirated copies)
But some provisions of this law clearly violate the Human Rights.
SEC. 4. Punishable Acts. - The following acts are declared illegal andpunishable:(a) Producing, printing, showing, exhibiting, importing, selling,advertising or distributing obscene or pornographic materials in allforms of mass media;
Obscene being defined as:
"Obscene" refers to anything that is indecent or offensive orcontrary to good customs or religious beliefs, principles or doctrines,or tends to corrupt or deprave the human mind, or is calculated toexcite impure thoughts or arouse prurient interest, or violates theproprieties of language and human behavior, regardless of the motive ofthe producer, printer, publisher, writer, importer,seller, distributoror exhibitor such as, but not limited to:(1) showing, depicting or describing sexual acts;(2) showing, depicting or describing human sexual organs or the femalebreasts;(3) showing, depicting or describing completely nude human bodies(4) describing erotic reactions, feelings or experiences on sexual actsor;(5) performing live sexual acts of whatever form.
The law clearly prohibits the expression of sex in ALL ITS FORMS. Hence, nude human bodies, human genitalia and EVEN erotic feelings and reactions should never be conveyed in a message whether through visual or through text.
What is an “impure thought”? Where does the concept of purity and impurity come from? Does this come from the religious belief that “sex is impure” and must only be shared between married people? Following this religious imposition, does that mean that all forms of sexual expression outside marriage is “impure”?
With this phrase, this law begins to sound like a “silly” phrase from a religious material.
Is it rightful for anyone to have the right to prohibit us in how we perceive visual and auditory messages?
And what is wrong with a material whose intention is to stimulate prurient interests from an educated and a responsible adult? Every adult person has the right to enjoy their sexuality, as long as they do not force anyone or entice a minor into consuming the sexual act with them. The enjoyment of one’s sexuality is a birthright of every person and that includes the consumption of “adult oriented” materials.
The basis of this provision obviously comes from religious principles that “sex is sacred” and “sex should only be consumed between two married people”.
This “lawful version” of a “biblical imposition” is questionable because no religious principle should ever be imposed on anyone.
This could be a clear violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 18 -- Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Section 4 (c) Showing, exhibiting, selling, or distributing obscene orpornographic movies in whatever format, whether produced in thePhilippines or abroad, in any restaurant, club or other places open tothe public, including private buildings, places or houses where theviewers are not limited to them owners thereof and the members of his family;
Why should a group of adults with their full consent be prohibited from viewing OBSCENE and PORNOGRAPHIC materials even in their own private residence?
Section 4 (d)
Writing any obscene or pornographic article in any print orelectronic medium;
Why should anyone be prohibited to write anything about sexual expression, when Sex is an integral part of our physiological, psychological and sociological expression?
Is this not a clear violation of Article 19, Universal Declaration of Human Rights? “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
