By now, I’m pretty sure you’ve seen or heard of Gangnam Style. It has become a global phenomenon and everyone jumped on the bandwagon including the MOCHA GIRLS (GANGNAM STYLE VIDEO). Ever since Gangnam Style conquered the net, people still kept mishearing the lyrics Oppa Gangnam Style to Open Condom Style. Since I love condoms, I decided to make a sexy parody ad – Open Condom Style with the Mocha Girls. The video is now 4th most popular on youtube reaching 130K views in 2 days. Some people loved it they thought it was fun and sexy. Some people hated it and accused me of promoting sex.
I am not promoting sex. I am promoting SAFE SEX, especially among the youth. According to United Nation Population Fund Agency (UNPFA), the Philippines has the highest teenage pregnancy rate among 6 major ASEAN economies. Birth rates for women aged 15 -19 rose over 70 percent in just 10 years. The numbers continue to rise steadily every year. There’s also an alarming increase in HIV/AIDs cases in our country. According to the United Nations’ Development Programme (UNDP), the Philippines is among the seven countries worldwide to have increased by 25 percent or more its HIV cases since 2001.
Just recently, a 19 year old girl tweeted me and confessed she had sex with her crush whom she barely knew. She’s worried because her period is delayed. They didn’t use protection, instead they used “withdrawal method” aka “pull-out method” or “pull and pray”. Contrary to popular belief, withdrawal method is NOT safe. It does not protect you from sexually-transmitted diseases and it’s not the best form of birth control.
A lot of teens don’t use condom because they worry about lessened sexual pleasure. They also fear that their partners will feel offended and would disapprove. We made the Open-Condom Style video to send a message to the youth that condoms are COOL. Don’t ever have sex without a condom. It’s better to protect yourself than be sorry.
