Not very long ago, Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda set the social media world abuzz when a video surfaced of him and his girlfriend making love.

He later apologized for the leaked private video and said his computer hard disk drive was stolen.

I asked: What are your thoughts on sex videos?

Here are some of your replies.

From @SpeedGrapher82: Sex videos can be a turn on for some, but if you don't want a scandal, it's best not to leave any evidence.

@run_iho offers a practical answer: People should learn how to encrypt their hard drives. Use Bitlocker if you are using Windows 7 or later.

@logical_chaos: Sex videos are nothing new anymore. We have been desensitized. The scandal will go away after a few days.

Ruth Soldevilla: Ano pa ba ngayon ang hindi nananakaw, nagiging viral at hindi na-scandalize. Nothing new.

Noypi says: Hayden got a lot of flak because the cam was hidden and he got lots of women. For Chito, it was consensual to have the video with his woman. This is just the "in" thing for most of us Pinoys. A good accidental diversion for the inept politicians we have.

Vanessa Vallescas Lafavilla: People should do whatever they want to do. With that, there are always consequences and responsibilities. So whatever floats your boat.

Marvin Margelino: As Mr Boy Abunda stated, there is love when they're making that video. And when a private love making video becomes public it becomes porn.

Queenygold Tribunalo: Lesson: huwag makipagtalik kung may camera. Kababuyan yan!

To which Melai Guevarra responds: Hindi naman kababuyan mag-sex sa harap ng camera unless you do it in exchange for a certain amount. Taking videos is fun in a way. Kanya-kanyang satisfaction yun eh.

Mario Padillo: Kababuyan? I don't think so! Are we all created from kababuyan? It's a healthy pleasure, ask your open minded parents.

Ays Espiritu: It’s an intimate moment between two consenting adults. It’s a private video and doesn’t need to be spread. If they posted it themselves, fine. But it’s not. We should respect privacy.

Sidney Pilapil Sargento: Normal lang naman ‘yung ginawa nila as partners. Naging malaswa lang kasi kumalat sa publiko, samu’t saring salita na ang naglabasan. Walang mali sa ginawa nila. To Chito Miranda, sana hindi nyo na lang kinuhanan ng video. Kawawa ang girl, lalo na ang buong pamilya niya. I’m sure kahit kapitbahay at kasambahay nila eh napanood na ang video.

Ang Una Kong Pag-ibig says: Pity for the guy who uploaded it, maybe he’s haunted by his conscience now!

@Mike_Doria: The one who posted it and the ones passing it around should be sued. People should learn to respect privacy.

@jeffcrisostomo: Sex between consenting adults is a beautiful human act. Turning it into an object of ridicule by leaking a video is disgusting.

Jonathan Domingo: Our judgment of others reflects on us more than on them.

@lexbonife: The more we make a big deal out of it, the more it shows how sexually fractured we are.

@davedamalerio: Have a mental picture stored in mind rather than taking a video of an intimate moment with your partner. It might be leaked.

Some of our viewers question the need to take sex videos in the first place.

@mynameisErikaDC: I don't understand why some people feel the need to document their private moments. Why take photos or videos?

Yves Rapiz: Is there a need to video this kind of intimate moment? I mean, why do they insist to capture it, when they can possibly nurture that moment between themselves. Then, they will suddenly react when it goes viral.

Esther Jill Delos Santos: Sex is a practice of intimacy between two people, why should they have to put it on cam? Evidence that they had sex? Hindi pa ba tayo natututo sa ibang tao, o artistang nasisiraan nang puri dahil sa pagkaka-publish nang mga ganyan video?!

That’s it for today.
