Only a few weeks after they first met online, “I decided to go to Philippines to meet and visit Ivy in person,” Khai said. But even before Khai’s coming over to visit Ivy, Ivy already fell for Khai.

‘They gave me a selection of girls to choose from, between the ages of 11 and 17. I told them I was interested in having six girls, two every night – 15 and 17, 11, 13 and then younger.

DAVAO CITY (Minda News/18 July) — Perhaps the most alarming result in a 2013 study on youth sexuality by the UP Population Institute and the Demographic Research and Development Foundation is that in Region XI, three in four youth feel invincible to AIDS.
The Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality (YAFS) studies, which interviewed 19,178 young people that represent all sectors in the society, also showed that the youth’s sexual debut is getting “younger as indicated by the mean age at first sex.” For males, the decline went from 18 years in 1994 to 17.2 years in 2013; females from 18.6 years to 17.4 years.

YAFS also showed an increasing proportion of male youth who engaged in early sex—from less than one percent in 1994 to 4.1 percent in 2013.
And most of these premarital sexual encounters (at 80.2%) are unprotected.
Philippine laws are plenty to combat these crimes against children.
A foreign journalist working with Philippine police and an American non-government organisation (NGO) has exposed more of the under-reported underworld of the Philippines’ underage sex industry.
