Science, Sex and Society

Rock Ed Radio invites you to a healthier discussion on sex. The phenomenon, the realities, the mysteries and the science of sex. What has been giggled about, frowned upon, kept secret, kept sacred, argued about, debated on, ignored (!), avoided, should really just be talked about frankly and comfortably. We all have our opinions on the sexual act depending on our religious inclinations, moral lines, traditional upbringing, media exposure, literary encounters - but do we really accept its reality?

Does sexual attraction start in the brain?

Is sex just biological? Do we understand the social implications of our attitude towards sex?

Hmmm.

Without the usual giggling, disrespectful perversion, or porn attitude, without the moral highground please -- let's talk about this. Subukan lang natin.

After all, we usually make better decisions when we are more informed.

Post questions or comments here before June 10 so we can include your thoughts on the show.

bakit takot na takot ang mga Pilipino sa sex? at bakit dumadami pa rin ang populasyon natin kung ganoon? at baket masama ang contraceptive? at baket nga nakakahiyang pag usapan ang sex?

ok tong discussion ng sex. sobrang konektado dun sa discussion last week on gender/sexuality. pagdating sa "literary encounters", locally, si lualhati bautista lang ata ang nagsusulat openly tungkol sa sex. mabuti nalang napublish yung forbidden fruit na anthology ng erotic writing. sobrang bibihira mga ganyang libro.

How do you explain it best when your child, who is below 10 years old, asks you about sex?

i'm 15 years old and i know how sex and social life combine. 'yung kabataan ngayon talagang atat sila for sex kasi, it became, sort of, a trend. parang inggit sa ibang tao, pati na rin sa paguudyok. masyadong masama na ang psychology ng kabataan ngayon, lalo na pagdating sa sex. so, as part of the youth--and younger--sana maturuan na--kaagad--ang kabataan natin ngayon. kaunti na lang ang rumerespeto sa halaga ng sex at respeto sa opposite gender. abstinence and respect, that's what we ONLY need; pati na rin 'yung mga mas nakatatanda--ng ilang taon lang o mas marami--, mag-isip din tayo. sex MUST be MUTUAL.

PROPER SEX EDUCATION

feeling ko yan ang tamang sagot sa mga problema natin.. matanong ko nga, bakit ang pinoy mahihilig sa mga sex scandal? pati phone nila ginagawa na ring instrumento ng "kamunduhan"...

sabi sa isang article na nabasa ko dati, mga pinoy daw number 1 searcher sa google ng mga tags na "sex scandal".. i dunno if its true..

can't wait 'til sunday.. mukhang masayang usapan 'to! dapat twice a week na lang rocked kahit hindi na pahabain yung oras.. hehe..

Bakit kaya minsan pag may ibang nakakarinig seaman or nagsa saudi ang asawa mo, agad agad na iniisip ng ilang tao eh manglalalaki ka na agad? Talaga bang hindi kayang mag abstain ng tao sa sex? Kala siguro ng iba na di nila kayang mag-isa(pun intended).
Bakit nakakahiyang mag masturbate? Mas maigi naman yun kesa mang rape ka or mag rent ka ng hooker, diba? Wala ka naman sigurong ikakahiya kung ikaw lang mag isa in the privacy of your own home/room.
Meron kayang aamin sa atin na magsasariling sikap sila kung kinakailangan?(Sabay taas ng kamay ko).
Sana makanood/kinig ako sa Sunday, after all, this is one of my favourite topics!

yeah, i agree on proper sex education, especially in public schools. i believe they should start at around grade 5 or 6, the age when most kids start to learn about sex...when they learn that it's not just bees and flowers or hotdog/eggs and pan...hehehe it is important though, to educate them about the consequences...

i was the one who taught my younger brother about this. hehehe 8 years aming gap and my mother pushed me to do so...hehehe

anyway, i believe sex is majorly biological. it is an innate need to reproduce. we are basically animals eh...

hay, sayang. i hope i can listen to this sunday's rock ed...duty na naman po ako, ER pa...waaaahhh!!!

'.. bkit kapag sex ang topic umiiba ang reaction ng mga tao?.. especially, ung mga mas matatanda. to think na they were matured enough para s gnung bagay.bkit iniicp nila n ung mga kabataan ndi p dapat pinag-uusapan un? ndi b parang mas ginagawa nila taung mga mangmang?




.. question lng, what's the difference between SEX & L0VEMAKING? is there really a difference?

.. i have this frnd kse, well nkwento nia lng sken. about her frnd hu had a rel with a lesbian. i don't know if my buddy's frnd had sex with that lesbian pro sbi nia ndi daw matatawag n LOVE MAKING ang pakikipagsex s isang lesbian. SEX lng daw ang pedeng itawag dun.

Chuck said...

ika nga ng mga kumakalat na text messages..

"ang relationship ay parang spaghetti at ang cheese ay parang sex.. kahit wala ito, pwede mo pa rin syang kainin, lalo na kung mahal mo ito.. ang cheese bonus na lang yun.. eventually kapag na namnam mo na ang sauce ng relationship, you'll realize na ang cheese is quite important but not priority... just like sex, kung cheese lang ang habol mong matikman sa spaghetti, eh di sana lumamon ka na lang ng isang keso de bola 'di ba?!"

share ko lang.. flooder na ba ako dito?! haha.. pasensya ma'am gang at ser lourd! hehe..

are condoms really that effective?

radiogal said...

ako 21, technically virgin pero sa thoughts hindi, so, walang virgin virgin pagdating sa usaping sex. kung sa edad ko at sa mga kaedad kong nagsasabi at nagkukunwaring embarassed sila sa usaping sex pero pagdating naman sa mga kwarto nila iniisip rin nila yon. baket sila mahihiya? yung mga nahihiya, sila pa ung unang nadedehado...

mahirap siguro para sa magulang ang sabihin sa anak na sex is bad kung kaya nga sila may anak kasi nag sex sila? so matagal na tayong nakahati talaga sa topic na ito....

Sex is what our parents, the society, the educational institutions and religion failed or deliberately avoided to teach us. Why is it easier to speak about sex using terms that are in English. Like the its easier to say "vagina" than its Filipino counterpart. We are ashamed of speaking sex in our own context and tried to use another. Sex becomes dangerous if we don't understand it. People should be taught about sex and it should be in a right place at the right time and with the right company. Some people would think that they are "open-minded" and be comfortable discussing sex with his/her peers in inappropriate situations but are only initiated by perversion (it becomes perversion if we are in a more "traditional" context). If understand sex and aware about its consequences, then issues about sex doesn't become "threatening" to talk about.
