                             ANGELA MORENA 


DENISE ESTEBAN and Angela Morena, new willing and able sexpots, play contrasting characters in the new series directed by GB Sampedro that starts streaming on June 5, “High (School) on Sex”.   

It’s about high school students and their misadventures involving sex.

Denise plays Issa, a student who has the reputation of being a whore, but the truth is that she is still a virgin. 

Angela plays Mavic, who has the reputation of being a virgin, but the truth is she is not that innocent anymore and has enjoyed experiences in having sex. 

In real life, how did they learn about sex, the birds and the bees?  

“Ideally, you should learn it from your parents but kadalasan, we learn it from our friends, our classmates,” says Denise. 

“Kami ng friends ko, nanonood kami sa phone ng porn. And when Vivamax took me to do sexy movies with them, I did my own research by watching porn sites which are now so accessible.”  

“Ako naman, I learned it from my teacher sa school, she explained it to us,” says Angela. “Also from my classmates. Then when I was with my aunt in Singapore, she allowed me to watch porn.”  

Do they think sex is dirty? 

“Sex as a word is not really bad,” says Denise. “Kung walang sex, di wala rin tayo rito sa mundo. 

"I think we should talk about it more openly para clear sa kids at hindi nila bigyan ng ibang interpretasyon. Kaysa kung itinatago sa kanila, lalo lang sila naku-curious.” 

“For me, dito lang naman sa Pinas nagiging big deal ang sex at madumi ang dating.” says Angela. 

“Sa ibang cultures, hindi naman. So sana matanggap ng mga tao na ang sex is just normal in our lives, basta nakalagay sa tamang use and context.” 

Do they approve of pre-marital sex? 

“I was brought up by my parents sa belief na you should give yourself sa kung sino lang ang mapapangasawa mo,” says Denise. 

“But now i ve learned to understand the opinion of other people. Kanya-kanyang paniniwala naman yan.” 

“Traditional culture yung belief na sex is only in marriage, dapat sa asawa mo lang,” says Angela. 

“Some people think sex before marriage is parang immoral. But we’re all entitled sa sarili nating paniniwala, so I just respect the perspective or choice of other people.”  

Since their movie is about high school life, did it bring back memories of their own high school days? 

“Masarap ang high school kasi dyan mo unang masusubukan ang lahat,” says Denise. 

“I really enjoyed high school and dito sa movie, best friends kami ni Wilbert since childhood pero hindi niya ako pinapansin kasi si Kat Dovey ang gusto niya. 

"Mahihirap ang eksena namin ni Wilbert kasi sobrang hahaba ng linya and tapos, sunod-sunod ang delivery so we have to memorize them all.” 

“Doing this show is like experiencing high school life again and I remember the time I joined the intrams as a volleyball player,” says Angela. 

“But I was not able to relate with my role kasi napakabigat nung karakter ko. Maraming pinagdaraanan, kaya lagi akong naliligo after each shoot, kasi ayokong bitbitin ang character at baka maiuwi ko pa.” 

Do they prefer a partner who’s considered good in bed? 

“At this point, wala akong iniisip na ganyan,” says Denise. “I’m just totally focused sa career kasi nagsisimula pa lang ako.” 

“Ano ba basehan kung magaling ang isang tao sa sex?” says Angela. “More important for me is may love between you two and you satisfy each other. Kahit hindi siya magaling, okay lang akong magturo kasi I like being dominant.”
