When it comes to sex, everyone’s experiences are different.

Last May 16, the stars of the upcoming Vivamax series “High (School) on Sex” – Wilbert Ross, Katrina Dovey, Angela Morena, and Denise Esteban – opened up about the first time they discovered sex during a Zoom conference.

“I don’t know, but it came very natural to me. It’s more of a friend’s thing, like my friends exposed me to it more than my parents did. Never naman tinago ng parents ko but I don’t think we ever talked about it directly,” Katrina said.

Wilbert remarked: “Nagse-share lang yung classmate ko tungkol sa Sugar G tapos na curious ako. Pagkatapos ko ma- curious, may nakilala akong babae na taga ibang bansa and tinuruan niya ako ng mga bagay-bagay.”

“Natutunan ko siya sa school. Yung teacher ko nagtuturo and out of curiosity, nagkukuwento na yung mga classmates ko ng porn stuff. Then mas naintidihan ko siya noong hinayaan ako ng tita ko na manood ng porn sa Malaysia. Doon ko siya talaga na discover,” quipped Angela.

Denise said: “Mahilig ako manood ng mga movies so doon ko siya unang na discover. At medyo curious ako so nag search ako sa mga porn sites.”

Vivamax brings lots of laughs and loads of sexy time in its new series, “High (School) on Sex”, pronounced as High On Sex, premiering on June 5.

Directed by Vivamax’s hit director GB Sampedro (Kaka, Crush Kong Curly, Kinsenas, Katapusan, Doblado), it follows the sexual awakening of five senior high students at Harmon Catholic University – Gibo, Wes, Mavic, Issa, and Karla. He described the series as “daring.”

“It’s daring pero tama lang sa age na pinoportray nila. It’s not daring na pang matured audience. They were personally handpicked for this movie at lahat naman sila ay nakakaunawa sa theme ng project,” he said.

Angela Morena

Gibo, played by Wilbert Ross (Boy Bastos, Crush Kong Curly) is a scholar with a high libido. He’s been holding on to his girlfriend’s promise that they would “go all the way” after Junior High, only to be left high and dry when she flies abroad. Gibo then turns his attention to his hot teacher and every boy’s fantasy, Mrs. Salva, played by Rob Guinto (X-Deal 2). Their illicit affair is going to be one for the books.

Wes, played by Migs Almendras (The Broken Marriage Vow, Glorious), wants to explore his sexuality. Gay or straight – anyone is welcome to get into bed with him. Nothing is going to stop him from being sexually authentic to himself. He gets the moniker “The Fluid”.

Denise Esteban

Issa, played by Denise Esteban (Doblado, Kaliwaan), has the reputation of being a slut. She embraces this image, even if she is actually a virgin. She and Gibo have been friends since childhood.

Mavic, played by Angela Morena (X-Deal 2, Iskandalo), is seen as a virgin, but the truth is, she is not as innocent as she looks. She may not have gone all the way just yet, but you’ll be surprised at what she has already experienced in sex.

Karla, played by Katrina Dovey (Doblado) is Gibo’s ex-girlfriend who suddenly returns from the U.S. She comes back carrying a huge secret.

As the five students gain knowledge from their classes, they also gain experiences that help them navigate their questions not just about sex, but also about identity, family, and love. Joining them are colorful characters from the Harmon Catholic University that would make their lives even wilder – Marco Gomez, Micaella Raz, Andrea Garcia, Juami Gutierrez, Katya Santos, Sheree Bautista, Mark Carpio and more.

The creatives behind “High (School) on Sex” could have chosen a more subdued title, but director Sampedro points out, “Ibang panahon na tayo ngayon eh. So, dapat pinag-uusapan nga natin iyan para aware ang mga kabataan sa kung ano ang mae-experience nila sa buhay nila. Pero siyempre kailangan may mga iko-consider din tayo sa paggawa ng ganitong series.” He also said that they interviewed students for this series, so it is based on reality.
