Jamilla Obispo, Angeli Khang voice thoughts on the phrase ‘sex sells’

“Kapag napapanood ng mga tao na something sexy na mas nagiging focus na sila. Mas nagiging– pinapanood nila, sinusubaybayan talaga nila.”– Angeli Khang.

On September 2, Viva stars Jamilla Obispo and Angeli Khang share their thoughts on the phrase ‘sex sells.’ 

At the media conference for the last three weeks of ‘Wag Mong Agawin Ang Akin with the press, including LionhearTV, Obispo talked about the demand for the sexy genre, citing how the audience evolved.



“For me, katulad nga ng sinabi ni Direk, kung paano mo–how you describe it, paano ko. I mean tanggapin na natin, let’s face it, iba na ‘yung demand ng tao ngayon. Kumbaga parang, nagbabago, kumbaga nag-eevolve na siya, ito ‘yung namamayagpag ngayon, itong sexy films kasi, ito ‘yung time niya talaga.”

She also considered the sexy genre as an art form, reiterating that it’s the era of erotic content.

“I think sex is a form of art di ba? Kumbaga parang art din ‘yan eh. Kumbaga, ang ginagawa namin ay ‘yung acting namin, art din ‘yan. nandoon din siya kasama din siya doon. For me, dapat din lahat may freedom, ganyan. 

“Ayun kumbaga ito na ‘yung demand ngayon eh. So kahit manood tayo ng ibang streaming app chuva diyan, kapag napanood mo mas grabe pa ‘yung kanilang love scenes actually, ayaw ko na lang magbangit ng titles, pero kumbaga ito na ‘yung era niya.”

She also pointed out that portraying intimate scenes is a part of her craft in acting.

“Yes, of course, in this way, kumbaga ito ‘yung point ng ano ko na nagagawa ko ‘yung craft ko, of course, acting, iyan ‘yung first love ko ever since. So nakakasama na lang din talaga ‘yung love scenes doon, sex scenes doon, siyempre, kung mahal mo ‘yung ginagawa mo parte ‘yun doon. Kumbaga it’s a good thing for me yes.”

Khang agreed with Obispo, citing that the sexy genre helps pull focus to the story they want to tell as artists.

“First thing, it’s not a bad thing kasi, everyone does that, ‘yung mga sexy scenes, hindi lang napo-portray. I think napo-portray siya noon noon pa, I think it’s not really a good, good thing, kasi a movie could go on without a sexy scene, pero tama nga ‘yung sinabi ni Direk and ni Jamilla na in-demand na siya ngayon, and to be honest, kapag napapanood ng mga tao na something sexy na mas nagiging focus na sila. Mas nagiging– pinapanood nila, sinusubaybayan talaga nila.”
