Subjugation to Spanish colonialism succeeded in demonizing many of these sexual practices so that today, behavior considered taboo are some customs and rites which are deemed necessary and pleasurable by men and women among Philippine indigenous communities.

The discourse in this book is a necessary first step in recuperating what could be a liberating sense of sexuality and gender relations especially for Filipinas in the modern-day world. It is hoped that the discussions will contribute to a sound and healthy discourse on gender and sexuality in the Philippines and finally lead to making sexuality a public discourse—one that can be lived, experienced, and narrated by the men, women, children, and the elderly all over the archipelago, whatever their sexual preferences or orientations.
