Banning of sex toys in Baguio pushed

A 15-YEAR-OLD Scout councilor filed a resolution requesting Baguio City Government to ban the selling, availing and possessing of sex toys.

University of Baguio Science High School student Jayvin So said the increasing number of sex toys in the market, especially in adult shops in the city, pollutes the minds of the youth.

So takes over Councilor Philian Weygan-Allan as chair of the Ethics, Governmental Affairs and Personnel committee for a day.

“[Sex toys] do not contribute [any good] to the welfare of our community, especially to the welfare of our youth,” So said.

Other scout councilors agreed that sex toys should be inaccessible to minors.

Majority of the scout councilors for a day voted to pass the resolution.

Copies of the resolution will be submitted to the Baguio City Police Office, Department of Trade and Industry, City Treasurer’s Office, Department of Interior and Local Government, Association of Barangay Councils and City Social Welfare and Development Office.

So and the rest of the scout councilors took over the City Hall for a day as part of the Scout Officials for a Day program of the Boys and Girls Scouts of the Philippines.
