Rumor has it that she is a sex goddess… wittingly gets her way into your sexual consciousness… rumor speaks of her loud and daring character. Her words are orgasmic.
But if you really want to know how this brilliant but passionate genius came to be the most charming sex therapist in the Philippines then you have to read these facts:
She received her A.B. in Psychology and was one of 7 Magna Cum Laude among the 2500+ who graduated from the University of the Philippines that year and was adjudged Most Outstanding Graduate for 1973 by the U.P. Alumni Association.
She was elected into membership of the International Honor Societies of the Phi Kappa Phi and Pi Gamma Mu.
What is remarkable despite all these achievements is that she is a good listener and extends to everyone regardless of shape, length of penises, status of virginity, economic class, ethnicity, gender and all. She never stops learning, understanding and sharing. No amount of educational training alone could develop the intelligent heart she possesses.
Please pass the word.
