The Cost of Sugar Dating Philippines
How much a sugar daddy should pay and the contribution a sugar baby must give in sugar dating Philippines are some of the most common questions out there. Before the sugar relationship kicks off, these are the things that both the baby and the daddy need to discuss on the first date without finding it awkward.

Ready to tackle teen sexuality?
Hyacinth Tagupa October 16, 2020

This year’s celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child (Oct. 11 and 12) focused on the call to end child marriage, a practice that remains legal and customary in some parts of the Philippines. Inevitably, the discussions also highlighted the alarming rate of teenage pregnancies in the country.

Adolescent Sexuality: Talk the Talk Before They Walk the Walk
Adolescence can be tough enough to get through without questions of sex, sexuality, and sexual identity. But adolescents are humans, too — no matter how alien they may seem to their parents at times

The Birds and the Bees and Developing Sexuality
It’s no surprise that the most common phrase used to describe sex and sexuality – ‘the Birds and the Bees’ – refers to nature. When we hear it, we know it means explaining the mechanics of sex to young children

Adolescent sexuality
a stage of human development in which adolescents experience and explore sexual feelings. Interest in sexuality intensifies during the onset of puberty, and sexuality is often a vital aspect of teenagers' lives

The age of consent
The age of sexual consent in the Philippines is 12 for all, but contacts with minors (under 18) are an offence if the minor consents to the act for money, gain or any other remuneration or as the result of an influence of any adult person.
It's this that makes it effectively illegal for anyone over 18 to have sex with one under 18, Republic Act 7610, section 6

Too young to marry
Mara Cepeda September 01, 2019

When Fatima woke up three days into the new year, she had no idea the day would end with her becoming tied for the rest of her life to a man she barely knew. Fatima learns her relatives have sealed her marriage to a stranger 8 years her senior. And her mother Isha – a child bride herself – was powerless to stop it
She was 14 years old. In 7 months, Fatima will be a mother. The child will be born after she turns 15
Anywhere else in the Philippines, young people like Fatima are permitted by the Family Code to marry only after reaching the age of 18. Muslim minors are an exception. Presidential Decree (PD) No. 1083 , or the Code of Muslim Personal Laws, allows Filipino Muslim males the right to marry at the age of 15. Muslim females, provided they have begun menstruating, are allowed to marry as young as 12, provided there is permission from their male guardian, or wali.

Fallen Angels. True cost of sex tourism:

Philippine’s fatherless kids of Angeles City Streetwalkers

Angeles City in the Philippines is a well-known sex tourism destination. There used to be an American air base here, but now it’s popular among mainly retired men who travel in search of sex for sale. Hundreds of local young women work in the bars and night clubs offering additional services for the money they desperately need to make ends meet and feed their families.
The real victims though are the sex workers’ children, conceived by foreign travellers.

These children immediately stand out in the crowd, being of mixed-race here almost certainly means a child is the product of a liaison between a sex tourist and a call girl. They may stand out but they’re not unusual, within their communities there are many children of the sex trade.

E.g. extract:
It continues a special dispensation granted last year for the duration of the Year of Mercy, which finished Sunday.
"I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life. In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God's mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father," the letter states.
"May every priest, therefore, be a guide, support and comfort to penitents on this journey of special reconciliation," the letter continues.
"I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion."

Philippines students develope a program allowing the visually impaired to read text messages.

Thanks to a new invention by university students in the Philippines, blind people may be able to use mobile phones with much more ease. Engineering students created a mobile phone for the visually impaired by putting a braille pad on the console to help them read and send text messages. One of the country's largest mobile phone networks is now looking into developing and distributing the braille units at an affordable price.

Deaf and Dumb

"Deaf and dumb" (or even just "dumb", when applied to deaf people, who do not speak) is an archaic term that is considered offensive.
Many Deaf people do not use a spoken language, thus they are technically "mute". The word "dumb" has at least an archaic meaning that means "mute". Of course, the word "dumb" also has another more common meaning now that implies stupidity, which is certainly not applicable to most Deaf people.

Given the long history of deafness, and the fact that Deaf people have been incorrectly assumed to be mentally deficient just because they do not speak, you can imagine that most Deaf people do not appreciate being called "Deaf and Dumb".

Jay explained about Globe warns of new text scam

Jan 31, 2013 Globe Telecom, Inc. advised postpaid subscribers to be cautious of text scams which entice people by telling them they can get discounts or rebates on their monthly bills. "Subscribers are requested to validate unusual texts and calls especially if they do not come from official four-digit Globe numbers," the telco firm said in a statement. "Texts and calls of this nature have a primary motive of asking for personal information, soliciting money or prepaid load, or using your account to purchase items online." One of those circulating "promo" messages reads: GLOBE Postpaid: Congrats! You're the one selected postpaid plan given P150 discount billing, to get your P150 discount billing just text 150 send to 2916XXXXXXX. Globe stressed that adding a "2" before the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient results in a Share-A-Load transaction, which means the victim would have transferred the amount to the scammer after pressing the "Send" button. "It is best not to respond, and immediately report suspicious texts or calls to authorized Globe customer service channels," the firm said.
