don't worry i found the answer

Philippines
Some years ago, former Manila mayor Lito Atienza banned the sale of condoms in the city's convenience stores The Philippines, being a dominantly Roman Catholic nation, has its religious leaders taking the same stand that the religion has – against their use (see above). Despite this, condoms are sold in other convenience stores in other parts of the country and that 73% of its citizens use them, and a condom company even has family planning services advertised on local television.[19] The ban on condom sales in the Metro Manila area has since been lifted, and condoms are currently available for over-the-counter purchase in some drug stores in the Manila area.

You can buy condoms anywhere, however the statistic that 73% of the locals use them is a lie. I don't think many people use them as there are many unwanted pregnancies here and single mothers. They are pretty much optional when having sex with someone here. If the guy doesn't want to wear one he doesn't have to. The woman here do not or cannot say no. I've never been forced to wear one and most guys I know that live here don't use them either. I think guys here just get used to not using them and don't care about the STD's that can result as you can just get over the counter medication without a prescription here so its not like you have to do the walk of shame into the local medical clinic or doctors office like you have to do in a western country.

In my experience, about half the girls in the Philippines ask you to use condoms and the other half doesn't mind if you don't. But even among the half that does, only about half of them are ardent about it. Many of the ones that ask you to use a condom will let you do it without a condom but tell you not to "cum inside" them. But of course, even if you cum inside them anyway, they just accept it.

Well, when I went crazy with sexual liberation from getting away from the states where I got almost no sex, and also Korea where I worked briefly, same scenario, when I arrived in the Philippines I banged every which way and that; often inebriated to the point of not caring about whatever ramifications happened after a tryst with a girl I picked up from the bar or where ever. I got complacent not using condoms as the girls don't care if you use one or not, and of course it feels better. Also a major influencing factor is the over the counter medicines you can buy here. If I caught something I could just self diagnose myself and buy the medicine I needed without seeing a doctor and not having to do the whole "walk of shame" bit.

So that was a few years ago and there was really no regularity. It was more luck of the draw, like russian roulette. Basically my word of advice is that anytime you choose to have sex with a bar girl or a freelancer asking for money, there will be a higher probability that she will have a STD, factoring in the amount of men she has sex with and lack of STD education regarding known symptoms. The girls literally have no clue about STD's and many will not get them fixed if they do have them unless it is really affecting them. Men know when they catch one within a few days usually, woman can go weeks or months without showing major symptoms.

Anyways, considering the amount of girls I have slept with here I would say somewhere between 5-10% had a STD and I caught it. They might actually have had a higher rate, but when I am thinking straight I cleanse myself immediately after having sex with an antiseptic now so I am assuming this eliminates the problem. Almost EVERY TIME I caught something it was because I did not wash my dick after having sex. :!: :!: :oops:

So the lesson learned is buy a small bottle of hydrogen peroxide and after having sex with a chick, cleanse yourself thoroughly with it and for the most part you will be fine. I've also developed skills since living here which enable me to intuitively sense and perceive girls who are sick, so I haven't had any problems in a while.

At the moment I am somewhat celibate for personal reasons, mainly economic and spiritual, so I haven't been rolling the dice as of late.

The tropical heat here seems to make one more susceptible to catching these kinds of things as well, thats why keeping oneself clean is really important if you are going to mess around with whores here.

Also I think ones own personal health plays a role in regards to catching various illnesses. I'm relatively healthy and don't get sick very often so I'm sure that helps.

Ah I see....You can get hepititas B and it isn't curable. There is a vacine for to prevent it, but you're best using condems. The long term consequences are liver damage.


Lonely planet says that 20% of people in SE asia have it. God you wouldn't believe the amount of diseases that are in these 3rd world countries. Lonely planet lists several pages of them.

Did you guys get vacinations for typhus, and all the other shit?

I haven't had any vaccinations since being shot with a bunch of air guns while in Navy boot camp, circa 93. I don't know what I got there, but haven't really had any major illnesses. I did catch the TB virus while in the Navy, I think I picked it up when I was messing around with the girls in Thailand while our ship was docked there for R & R. I had to take some kind of medicine to kill the virus for 6 months.

I think anywhere one lives in the world will have some kind of dangers too it. You can't get overly paranoid about it, or you'll never enjoy the other experiences life has to offer outside of typical western countries. But if you're really worried, I suppose you could get whatever shots are recommended before going to that particular 3rd world country.

Yeah, TB is common in asia.

I would definitely get some vaccinations before I go. TB has been virtually wiped out in most 1 st world countries.

Diseases are one of the disadvantages of living there, but you can get vaccines here that will deal with whatever problems you may find.


Hey, thanks for the information.
