10 times Filipino entertainment site Bandera went too forthright with their headlines

Talking about sexual and other spicy topics in a straightforward manner is somehow still taboo in the Philippines. But, consider Bandera different. Surely, INQUIRER.net’s Filipino entertainment site (and POP!’s sister title) has a way to make readers engaged. There is nothing wrong with this; however, some still find it kind of surprising.

For what it’s worth–it is entertainment, after all.
