There is a prayer rally for those that do not support the Reproductive Health Bill (#RHBill). A banner stands out among the throng of rallyists. “Yes to Saved Sex. No to Safe Sex”.
A lot of tweeps are asking what is #savedsex? @raggster surmised that it is ” abstinence. “Saving” sex for infertile periods. Unfortunately they didn’t quite think that tag line through. =/”. While it clearly means abstinence, the organizers did not label it as such. It could have been intended to be catchy but fails to deliver the message. Some think it is saving a file as jpg or .mov to a thumb drive . Clinton Baud asks “Does that mean sex where you can pause it then you can resume it later? LOL #SavedSex” nope, REBOOT. Bwahahaha” while another @garrickbercero thinks #Savedsex is the best kind of sex. That way, when you die, you will always respawn in the middle of intercourse. It also sends a signal that “no to safe sex= yes to AIDS, yes to teenage pregnancy, yes 2 abortion, yes 2 more streetkids, yes 2 more informal settlers, etc” says @wenchie318.
@MochaUson thinks “Saved Sex” doesn’t make teens have less sex. The Philippines has the highest teen pregnancy rate in Asia.
@mapdl adds ” saved sex is simply doing what is right. To value the gift God has intended for married people. #SavedSex #NOTORHBILL”
@jabjimenez suggests ” Ergo, banner shld have read “yes to saved sex, yes to safe sex.” #justsaying #passRHBill”
Most made fun . @bethangsioco asks ” If one wants to save sex, when does one deposit it? Hehe” @garrickbercero adds ” #Savedsex is the best kind of sex. That way, when you die, you will always respawn in the middle of intercourse.”
here is what others thought about #savedsex
