“Free Sex” at 2019 Dinagyang Festival

“Free Sex at 2019 Dinagyang Festival.” First of all, what has The Crusty Old Expat been smoking? Frankly, nothing. However, I have been reading an article by Glenda Tayona over at the Panay News this morning that perked me up.

 A NGO, nongovernment organization, is giving away free condoms during this year’s Dinagyang Festival.

In contrast, smoking in public during the annual celebration can land you in jail.

However, “free sex” at the Dinagyang Festival, along with no curfew restriction on drinking beer, is reminiscent of heathen Roman orgies over a thousand years ago.

Now all they need is a vomitorium.

OK, so sex and public drunkenness are deemed more permissible than openly smoking in public? While I’m not a smoker myself, something seems askew on Dinagyang’s moral compass.

The “Planned Parenthood of the Philippines”, the Family Planning Organization of Philippines (FPOP) Iloilo Chapter, is giving away the free condoms.

During the 2017 Dinagyang, 70,000 condoms were distributed, said Mona Lisa Diones, FPOP Iloilo program manager.

FPOP Iloilo gets its supply of free condoms from Save the Children, also a nongovernment organization, the Department of Health and other organizations.

The distribution will be until Sunday.

Then, evidently, the free sex will end.
