I took a snapshot of this rather strange looking poster ad at while driving at a busy suburban avenue. I stopped momentarily, took my little camera out of my car’s glove compartment, took the shot while the car behind me likewise stopped, wondering what was going on. What’s the deal with this ad ? Is it meant to alleviate the peer pressure of preserving one’s virginity or provide assistance in consummating that yearning to break such virginity ? I remember my all boys Catholic high school days back in Pinas, when a retired judge who came to speak at our retreat spoke about being patient with sex. “Don’t rush” he said. ” when you eventually get married, you will find sex boring “ πŸ™‚ We thought he was sucking up to the priests who were listening, making them feel better πŸ˜‰

I didn’t call the toll free number πŸ˜‰ but it does bug me to think that young folks nowadays, especially young women equate virginity as being uncool, nerdy or a symbol of being undesired. On one hand there’s also that hypocrisy of society, especially in the eastern culture, where men go on a rampage sowing their oats in their younger years but put a premium on marrying a virgin. I heard than in some middle eastern cultures, marrying a non-virgin is ground for instant divorce. The west says that what is good for the goose is also good for the gander. Anyhow, I’m not here to moralize but suffice to say family has a lot to do with reinforcing values to our children. Help lines are there for a reason, because kids have nowhere to turn to and perhaps no one to trust with their problems.


Concerned about her relationship, a woman approaches her doctor and says, “Doc, I’m getting married this weekend and my fiance thinks I’m a virgin. Is there anything you can do to help me?” After the doctor stops laughing he says, ” Medically, no, but here’s something you can try. On the wedding night, when you’re getting ready for bed, take an elastic band and slide it to your upper thigh. When your husband puts it in, snap the elastic band and tell him it’s your virginity snapping.” The woman loves this idea, and knows her hubby-to-be will fall for it. They have a beautiful wedding and retire to the honeymoon suite. The wife gets ready for bed in the bathroom, slips the elastic band up her leg, finishes preparing and climbs into bed with her man. Things begin to progress and as her hubby “slips it in”, she snaps the elastic band. The hubby asks:”What the hell was that?” The wife explains, “Oh nothing honey, that was just my virginity snapping.”The husband cries out, “Well snap it again, it’s got my balls!”




This time I won’t be talking about the Pacquiao-Margarito fight. I’d be watching the PPV fight on HD for sure and I’m betting for the Pacman to beat Margarito to submission. I’d like to talk about Teddy Atlas – boxing trainer and ESPN sports announcer who for the last 6 Pacquiao fights with Marquez, Diaz, de la Hoya, Hatton, Cotto and Clottey – never got the winner right. It is unbelievable how the man never picked the Pacman to win but still continues to have the balls to predict and analyze boxing match ups. I have never seen a sportscaster show so much disrespect for Pacquiao’s talent than this guy who has written off the Pacman in all of his major fights. If he was a betting man, he could have lost his house by now. Perhaps it is envy of fellow trainer Freddie Roach who pockets a cool $1M for every Pacquiao fight making Atlas look like a little leaguer. For the last 5 Pacquiao fights his theory of the bigger man having the advantage had been trumped badly yet he continues to pitch the same dimwitted theory over and over again. I feel like Atlas is dying for a Pacman loss so he could say “ see – I told you so !” If that day ever came he could put a stop to his embarrassing losing streak, redeem some credibility , and say ” Alas, at last – Atlas is right

  1. That’s a pretty weird poster. I also heard they have this posted in other cities. We still about honor killings these days which is pretty sad.

    I like the quote. we should tell that to George Bush πŸ™‚

    I never liked Teddy Atlas. He just blabbers on with no sense.

    • yes, the poster is also found in other big cities in the US.
      When someone dies because of the issue of purity it is indeed sad.

      Atlas is not a boring announcer but his bias against Pacquiao definitely shows.

  2. Peer pressure can be too much. But you can pretty much ignore them and be on your own, sticking to your own rules. No need to follow what everyone says.

    The joke is nasty but quite hilarious. As for the quote , it is so true. I am not a fan of martial arts at all.

  3. I think sex is only boring when couples do it only in one position (usually missionary) all the time. It helps when one is “imaginative” and “spiced” it a little bit. >: D

    The quote is apt to tell to the modern “Crusaders”.

    • LOL … the retired judge was probably speaking of his own predicament at the time he spoke πŸ˜‰

      Know what , I ‘m thinking – it’s high time to leave Afghanistan. It’s been too long.

  4. the culture here in the western world puts little stock on virginity. that’s all i would like to say on this subject – slippery slope kind of thing.

    Pacquiao has another fight? Is he physically ready for this? Who is this guy? Is he a titled contender like Pacman? Is it gonna be in Vegas again?

    Sorry, my whole universe revolves around one sport at the moment – MLB – our SF Giants just bagged the NL West pennant. GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • you said it best and that’s why I didn’t talk too much about this slippery slope πŸ˜‰

      Yes, he’s fighting the biggest guy in his career so far but he is still favored to win.

      Congrats. I just follow ex Blue Jay Roy Holliday who’s with the Phillies now. He had a no hitter against the Reds in their first game. Hope the Giants don’t meet with the Phillies hehe πŸ™‚

  5. Truly, an odd ad.

    But it gets attention because is offers a solution to a perceived problem.

  6. You didn’t call the toll free number?

    I guess another sure win for the Pacman.

    • LOL, I did not πŸ™‚

      The odds are in favor of the Pacman again. If I were the Pac I’d quit boxing. Not sure if he can achieve 100% concentration this time being already congressman. On one hand it is preferable for this fight to happen early in his political, a few moths after his election to office.

  7. ‘ I heard than in some middle eastern cultures, marrying a non-virgin is ground for instant divorce.’

    Wha? You mean the guy stops the sex act upon finding he can easily go in, calls 911 to report the incident ?

    • if you are asking how the court can have evidence of the woman being non virgin, then I don’t know. Perhaps the man’s sworn statement is good enough πŸ˜‰


    I have a more “liberal” approach when it comes to this kind of topic. Pero mahirap magsalita… mas madami pa rin ang mga impokrito’t impokrita… hehehehehehehe

  9. Why would a virgin need help? There has to be someone out there in cahoots with a sex maniac preying on virgins – willing to pay big bucks, hehe….

    Teddy is washed out and his bruised ego can never be resurrected regardless if Pacyaw loses one of these days; he’s been wrong so many times.

    • A matchmaking service – that would be pretty gutsy πŸ˜‰

      Very true. Atlas better stick to commentating on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights analyzing relatively unknown fighters duking it out in the ring,

      • Why won’t an undercover CMP or some detective call the number and check what’s it all about, just a thought.

        Btw, I’ll get my refund on the Pakyaw/FW fight this saturday. The Sports VP for Station Casinos saw me thursday nite and he’s willing to give my bucks early. Word here is that FW is facing prison time BUT with his resources; he’ll most likely sorround himself with few highpowered esquires, what else is new.

        • wow.. took you that long to get your refund ?? With FW into this big time imbroglio with the law I doubt if he can fight Pacquiao anytime soon, more so if the Pacman wins against Margarito πŸ˜‰

  10. Help call for being a virgin? Can’t keep up with all these changes! πŸ™‚ But very strange and suspicious indeed.

    Oh, I hope that Atlas was the husband in the virgin-elastic band joke! πŸ™‚

    • It”s odd – isn’t it ? I wanted to call to find out but my wife told me not to be tsismoso hehe πŸ™‚

      LOL on Teddy Atlas.. He is one of those sportscasters who think that Pacquiao is on steroids. You can read between the lines when he talks about the drug testing brouhaha on the failed Pacquiao and Mayweather fight. 😦

  11. Well, I just hope we can’t find that ad here in the Philippines πŸ™‚
