Wohoho. There goes the rhetoric.
Well, what do you know? It seems sex always manages to show up even in places of the high and mighty. Good thing King Solomon had a thousand concubines. Mighty strong gonads, you got there Maestro. The pattern has not been broken, however. Perhaps it comes with the terrain: Political power attracts all the beautiful women. Or is it just because of the excessive overflowing of money. And every politician worth his salt should be humping and pumping. What a concept! For a greater Philippines!
