Manila, Philippines, January 8, 2010 – The Department of Tourism (DOT) expressed concern that it takes a serious action regarding the recent scandalous video footages involving two pairs of foreigners having sex on the beach and in the waters of Boracay on New Year’s Eve.

The DOT Tourism Assistant Secretary Domingo Enerio III said that there is a need for an ordinance that having sex in Boracay beach will not be tolerated.

Hotel owners and other establishments on the beach should post signs or a warning like “sun, sea, sand, but no sex” is a very nice slogan, Enerio said.

The ordinance would make it clear that it is okay to be happy, and enjoy while on the island but there are things that should be done privately in their hotel rooms.

Boracay’s image as a wholesome family destination must be protected by an ordinance, Mayor John Yap of Malay town in Aklan Province which includes Boracay told ABS-CBN News that the local government might impose ban on sex on the beach.

Malay councilor Rowen Aguirre did not see any need for a local ordinance as this is already covered under national laws governing public scandals and it’s up for the law enforcers to implement
