The Department of Tourism of the Philippines recently launched their new campaign on "It's More Fun in The Philippines" (You can learn more by clicking the link here). Since its start last January 6 2012, the campaign has gone viral over social networks and blogs, with numerous Filipinos sharing their own reasons on why Philippines can be a premier destination due to its places made more fun by its fun Pinoy people. Even my friend Rocky has created his own versions (memes) of the campaign for one of Manila's gay clubs (See link of his blog here).
So how are gay bars more fun in the Philippines?

Blind dates. More fun in the Philippines
You get to choose your guy. But you get to pay for your date.
Gratitude (or gratuity or gratuitous showing). More fun in the Philippines
Thousand peso bills go a long way.
Stage Plays. More fun in the Philippines.
A half-naked man is always at the center of the stage.
Finding love. More fun in the Philippines
For matronas, lonely gay guys, bar girls and especially, the #1 tourists: Korean women
Just a few notes:
1. I am NOT promoting sex tourism. "Off-ing" the men or taking them out of the bar is very expensive, to restrain the customers. Some bars don't allow it at all. Besides, a lot of the guys working here don't see themselves as sex workers (they're only working there as entertainers).
2. The ones shown above are what we can claim as more fun in the Philippines. I've tried to consider others but failed. For example, "angry birds" can be fun in the Philippines, but it's more fun in the more risque gogo bars of Bangkok and in some cities around the world. Manila does not even have imitation sex on stage, sorry.
What other ideas do you have? Is it really more fun in the gay bars of the Philippines?
