Sex on the beach: Soon to be banned in Boracay?
Published on: Jan 7, 2011 - 9:53am

ABS-CBN News report


Boracay authorities are threatening to implement a "no sex on the beach" rule, after ABS-CBN News caught on camera two couples in various states of undress publicly making out on New Year's Day. One couple was said to be having sex on the beach, while the other pair was making out, with the woman's breasts exposed. Both pairs were allegedly foreigners.

John Yap, the mayor of Malay that has jurisdiction over Boracay, told ABS-CBN that authorities are thinking of a "no sex on the beach" ordinance so that other tourists would not be scandalized. "It's an isolated case and quite difficult to control but, if police had seen them, they would have been arrested for public scandal," the AFP quoted Yap as saying.

Host-actress Ruffa Gutierrez, who spent the holidays in Boracay with her family and friends, told ABS-CBN,"Bilang Pinay, I'm still very conservative kahit pa lumaki ako sa Amerika. Ayoko naman na gawin ng mga anak ko iyon--knock on wood--one day. So for me, it's just not right." ("As a Filipina, I'm still very conservative even if I grew up in the States. I don't want my children to do those things one day... It's just not right.")

    Soon there will be a law prohibiting tourists and foreigners from wearing two piece and low cleavage swim suit in Boracay. All disco houses will be closed after 12 midnight and any tourists violating this law will be punished 5 days imprisonment. I love that.

    Ruffa Guttierez saying stuff like that makes me laugh. Even if she wore a nun outfit, it still won't be convincing.

    well, that's abs-cbn news! sensationalizing everything to the max! alam ko common na yun sa boracay. nagkataon siguro na walang mahanap yung reporter ng abs at nakita yung 2 foreigners kaya kinuhanan tapos sensationalize na lang para maging hot topic. sabi pa ng reporter na 2AM new year ginawa yun at malinawag pa dahil sa ilaw ng hotels eh ilaw lang ng camera nila un eh.

    Hypocrites to think that only foreigners do this in Boracay, if they did it in broad day light then that something else, but so is a camera man taking shots at 2 in the am (its in the newsfeed the time). Why dont you go to quezon memorial circle, up sunken garden and lunueta park and you will see that even in broad daylight students do this kind of thing.

    Why is it going to be banned? Was it allowed in the first place? :prnrnAnd why do you need to mention that Ruffa "told ABS-CBN in a mix of Filipino and English"? Is that newsworthy?

    Kanya-kanyang taboo lang yan. Sa ibang bansa may nude beach. Sa ibang bansa holding hands lang bawal din. Ok lang naman mag-sex sa beach pero sobrang dami na ng tao sa Boracay, imposibleng walang makapansin. Puwede pa yan sa Palawan, sa Caramoan, sa Batanes, sa Mindoro, sa Bohol, sa Cebu...etc

    @marj, what kind of comment is that? are you serious? You mean, its not their fault that they can't keep their urges until they get back to their room... If they are dogs I will agree with you...rnrnand you said its the fault of those people taking the video? really? I guess you're not sober yet from your last night's drinking spree...

    @marjrnI'm pretty sure that 2 AM on a New Year in party-crazy Boracay is not exactly a time "when most people were asleep" already.

    Although I do not condone sex in public spaces, it's not as if only foreigners do it. Pinoys have sex on the beaches of Boracay, too. rnrnSadly, I cannot get over the anti-foreigner bias of the news report.

    The shagging was done at 2 am indeed, but there is no curfew for decency. I hope these horny tourists will be mindful of others' sense of propriety next time they want to do the deed.

    They may be having a private moment, but Boracay is STILL a public place. Private affairs should be kept in private places...

    The act happened at 2:00 a.m. when most are asleep. Its the nosy folks' (who took the video) fault around them not the couple's fault. I wish these nosy folks will take videos of politicians who do not follow traffic rules or traffic cops who receive bribes instead of these private individuals enjoying their private moment. And to Ruffa, what will you tell your children about Brunei?

    Kasi wala silang respeto sa isang Third World kawntree tulad natin at sa mga natives na nakatira dito (tayo yun!) Extension lang ng paghahari at pamamayagpag nila ang lahat ng lugar sa bansa natin. At tayo, na taga-rito talaga, are all too willing na pagbigyan lahat ang mga kauunguyan ng mga 'yan kahit na gaanong kababoy na ang mga ginagawa nila. Kasi tingin natin sa mga puti, lahat mayaman. Hahahahaha! Mga basurero na di man lang nakatapos ng high school ang karamihan sa mga unggoy na yan! Yun nga ang insulto eh, tayo takot na takot sa lugar nila, sila walang takot sa lugar natin. Aba eh, kung ganuon na din lang, wag na lang silang pumunta dito. Tutal hindi naman talaga tayo puntahin at we have managed so far.

  • sex on the beach cocktail
    Kahit may hotel naman iba pa rin ang thrill to do it on the beach at makisabay sa "pagpapaputok" ng mga fireworks overhead. Pero these foreigners have 7,100 islands to choose from, why choose the one with the most number of people at this time of the year to do the dastardly deed?
