Menarini Philippines promotes its Commit to Control PE advocacy campaign via "Happy Wife, Happy Life"

Couples are expected commit to meeting each other's physical and emotional needs to build a lasting marriage. The foundation of a marriage is a solid commitment of unconditional love, and romance is an outward expression of that love. While physical intimacy with one's partner can be an opportunity to deepen love and affection, it can occasionally be a source of great stress.

Last Saturday, I attended Menarini Philippines' "Happy Wife, Happy Life" event held at Seda Hotel BGC. The said Commit to Control PE campaign is directed at making couples more comfortable about discussing their intimacy concerns with each other. It is a sequel to the awareness campaign on Premature Ejaculation launch in Manila early last year. See article here.

While Premature Ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction in men, it remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. PE is characterized by a lack of perceived control over ejaculation as well as negative personal consequences, such as distress or interpersonal difficulty, which leads to a decrease in sexual satisfaction.

Celebrity host RJ Ledesma opened the talk with the guest bloggers answering a survey on physical intimacy. Individual clickers were provided for guests to key in their answers. The real time results to each question were then presented and some items revealed interesting data.

Dr. Dennis Serrano was also there to talk about the “basics” of premature ejaculation in order to give the guests have a better understanding of this condition.


Sex and relationship therapist, Dr. Margie Holmes, gave a talk on various aspects of a relationship between couples. Relationships tend to grow under positive conditions according to her and this means that a couple needs to have fun together, have sex together, laugh and enjoy one another’s interests. “Love that lasts is better”, shared Dr. Holmes. "Sex is a three-letter word. But in truth, what you really need, to convey its true meaning, are four letter words like love, give, lust, and LAST(ing love)."

Dubbed as the world's largest Italian biopharmaceutical company, Menarini introduced Priligy (Dapoxetine), the first and only drug specifically developed Premature Ejaculation in the Philippines. Men with clinical diagnosis of PE aged between 18 to 64 years can take charge and address premature ejaculation (PE)issues.

Dapoxetine can help improve control over ejaculation and sexual satisfaction for the couple. It may be taken on-demand just one to three hours prior to sexual activity with a full glass of water.

Menarini's dapoxetine is clinically proven in studies involving over 6,000 men worldwide and is now approved in over 50 countries.

Dare to Dream was a Blast!

I was excited as much as my daughter to watch the Disney On Ice "Dare to Dream" show last January 4th. The theater production started with an enthralling number from Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.


Snow White and The Seven Dwarves story soon followed shortly. She hides with the group of seven adorable dwarves and is pursued by a jealous, evil queen who feeds her a poison apple. In the end, the handsome prince awakens her with a kiss and they lived happily ever after.

The second part of the performance was about Ella's life. Cinderella is a classic fairy tale about a servant step-daughter who wins the heart of Prince Charming.

Cinderella, treated as slave by her stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella, dreams of going to the Prince's ball. We all love the colorful costumes, props and scenes especially the magical coach she had ridden to get to the ball.

Tangled was the third leg of the show that I love the most! The aerial performances of Rapunzel and Flynn were outstanding!


This version of the Rapunzel story was visually stunning! My daughter and I watched the film years ago and seeing it on stage still worked for me just as it had the first time I saw it on film. 

It was really funny how on-the-run Flynn Rider comes into Rapunzel’s life, how he agrees to take Rapunzel away from Mother Gothel’s tower to see the lanterns. We were as eager as Rapunzel to see a group of floating lanterns filling the sky.


Maximus the horse was also a scene-stealer.  It helped make this opposites-attract love story click perfectly as well!


The finale was such a spectacular one! It was a grand production seing princesses Rapunzel, Tiana, Cinderella, Aurora, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Snow White and Mulan do the ice skating lifts, spins and footwork in aa graceful manner.







And our magical experience was capped with Snow White and Prince Charming photo-op.

My family and I had a great time watching Disney On Ice "Dare to Dream" show. Special thanks to Magnolia Chocolait and Yehey! Digital Group for bringing out the kids in all of us!
