Real Man Joem

I don’t know with you, but when I look at actor and ex-underwear model Joem Bascon, I can smell S-E-X. I see sweat, body hair. I get a whiff of a strong musky, masculine scent. Blemishes and all, Joem is oozing with real man imperfection and irregularity. And I’m oohing. That said, watch Lihis, as our dear Joem dizzy-dazzles in his moments in the gay-themed flick starting 11 September in SM Cinemas nation wide.

Beautiful Baller

Speaking of Marx, this model started out small in his field. Marx Topacio was a lanky teenager when he began playing for the San Sebastian College Baycats in Cavite City. His good looks were plus points then, as he was recruited to model clothes and more in the big city. Now, he’s one of the more in-demand models on the runway. He is also venturing into showbiz these days.


Romance. Erotica. There’s more to the story in the new indie flick Lihis as Jake and Joem explore gay relations and fornication and Marxist leanings.  In the movie, Jake and Joem play two activists who go up the [Brokeback] mountain and fight not only for the country’s redemption against the dictatorial regime in the 70s but also for their love for each other. Nice. Lihis will be shown in SM Cinemas from 11-17 September 2013 as part of the Sineng Pambansa National Film Festival All Masters Edition.

Fit Edward

On Throwback Thursday, model-actor-fitness-expert Edward Mendez dons grandpa underwear! He’s still looking hot and sexy, though. Edward has gone a long way from one of the first contestants of Mossimo Bikini Summit [the year Carlo Maceda won], to top-model status and a bit player in the movies and tv, and now as a “fitness -wellness consultant” for a “holistic fat reduction clinic.”

AVO and the Boys

DLSU’s big man Arnold Van Opstal [center] is naturally a hit in the sex-object category of this year’s UAAP batch of players. With his good looks and hot bod [plus height at 6’7″!], AVO is surely raking in admirers who only have wild and prurient fantasies of this guy.  Of course, it helps that rumors abound on his legendary large member.

Ode To Forbidden Love

Mark your calendars: 11 September 2013!

The much-awaited movie of love beyond the pale – Lihis will start its commercial run on said date, a Wednesday. Jake and Joem, of course, will provide the drama and the fireworks in this tragic story of two communist rebels who fall in love in the turbulent 70s.

Lihis is Director Joel Lamangan’s entry in the first Sineng Pambansa All Masters Film Festival exclusive in SM Cinemas nationwide this September.
