Gay Guide Philippines
The sauna culture in the Philippines is similar to that in Thailand, the main difference is that the Philippines is a catholic country, so gay men here are more reserved. The Philippines, like some other Southeast Asian countries, has an unfortunate reputation for prostitution and sex tourism. Prostitution in the Philippines is illegal.
