The Soccsksargen EXperience Tour for Bloggers must have already made an impression in the Philippine blogosphere that by the time we have started planning for its 4th installment which is still due in September this year, I have already received enquiries from bloggers.
The SEX Tour was started out in September 2010 by GenSan News Online Mag & GandaEverSoMuch as an alternative activity for a group of Manila-based bloggers who flew to General Santos City at that time but were left with nothing to do since their original reason of coming here, the Tuna Festival was moved to a later schedule.
Guided by the success of the Soccsksargen Summer Safari in May 2010 participated in by more than 20 bloggers from Cagayan de Oro, Davao and GenSan, we immediately devised a similar albeit simpler tour package for them and called it the SEX Tour, short for Soccsksargen EXperience Tour.
Needless to say, that initial SEX Tour was such a smashing success that we followed it up with a SEX Tour 2.0in February 2011. A 3rd version, the SEX Tour Tresin September 2011 was also hatched.
All these three SEX Tours did wonders in promoting South Central Mindanao by highlighting its eco/industrial tourism potentials, OTOP products and services of world-class calibre plus its bounty of heavenly gastronomic delights!
(We will be sharing the blog posts from the participants of the SEX Tour Tres in a future feature so watch out for it.)
And now for SEX Tour 4.0, we are expanding the itinerary to include more pitstops and adventours on a larger scale!
This time, as organized by Project O! Consultants, SEX Tour 4.0 will traverse 3 Cities (Gen.Santos, Koronadal, Tacurong) and 3 Provinces (Sarangani, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat) and will run from September 1 to 5, again right smack during the ATOP 2nd Best Festival in the Philppines awardee, the Tuna Festival!
So to keep everyone informed and even more excited, here’s the official teaser, the SEX Tour 4.0 poster, created by young Wizard designerJune Raye Prudente, a blogger from Polomolok, South Cotabato.
A registration fee of a measly P2,000 is the small amount required for each participant although we are limiting the number to 25 bloggers at the most. We have already pre-chosen 10 bloggers initially and will need to look only for 15 more.
Transportation fares to and from General Santos City plus expenses on hotel accommodations from September 1 to 5, 2012 will be shouldered by the participants themselves.
Check out GenSanHotels.com for very affordable lodging houses in the city. We can also assist you in scouting for the best places for you to stay while here.
Meals, snacks and water are all complimentary and will be provided by the SEX TOUR 4.0 partners and pitstops. Each SEX Tourist will be given a SEX Tour 4.0 Kit.
If you are interested in joining, just leave a message below detailing your reasons as to why you want to be part of the SEX TOUR 4.0. Along with those is the vow or promise to BLOG about each major pitstop of the tour afterwards. Be sure that your messages are convincing enough to make us laugh, cry, scream and eventually choose you as one of the official 25 SEX Tourists for 2012!

Woah. I hope I’m not too late. I’ll still give it a try though.
I would love to join the SEX TOUR 4.0 not only because I haven’t been to these parts of Mindanao but because I want to show other travelers that this part of the country should not be something to be afraid of. Aside from promoting these provinces’ tourism, I aim to let other people know that there is more to Mindanao than what is wrongly depicted by the media.
Since the Internet is one of the easiest and fastest ways to share travel experiences, I would, of course, blog about all the destinations that this tour plans to include. And this is certainly a promise. 😉
Hi Sir Avel, yes, we are two individuals working together behind Pinas Muna, myself and Ed. Our blog is a product of our synergy and combined talents (photography, writing, mapping, technology, etc). We do travel together to have two perspectives of the places we visit and write about. 🙂
@Ramil, thanks for the info. 🙂
Hi Sir Avel, we would like to express our interest in joining Sex Tour 4.0. We already have confirmed flights to GenSan for the Tuna Festival and would like to take this opportunity to explore other parts of Soccsksargen and share this experience through our blog and FB pages. Thanks and best regards, Ramil & Edgar of pinasmuna.blogspot.com
@Ramil Delos Reyes, hi! Will announce the approved applications soon. Thanks for expressing interest. By the way, two of you own pinasmuna? 🙂
Guys! We will be finalizing the LIST OF ACCEPTED APPLICANTS to the SEX TOUR 4.0 in a few days. Watch out for it!
[…] According to Ms. Michelle, “The main activity center will have ample parking spaces for all vehicles this time.” NOTE: Gumasa’s White Sand Beaches will be a pitstop of the SEX Tour 4.0 for Bloggers. […]

Sex Tour has been successful and made some noise in the blogging community for the past three ‘installments’ (naks parang movie lang). I’d want to join Sex Tour 4.0 together with my crew (Byahe Ta Bai of Mindanao Travel Channel – Mark Cabrera, Juy Nacorda and Andrew dela Serna).
We don’t just blog about it… we would also feature this event on Mindanao Travel Channel. We will also post the episode on our YouTube Channel. Oh diba, may media coverage na ang Sex Tour! :P)
Hope the four of us will be included!
Wow! Excited to meet other bloggers na and have SEX fun again!
Don’t count this message as an appeal to join yet, I will do a separate message for why I REALLY WANTED TO JOIN!!! OMG!!! I JUST WANTED TO EXPRESS HOW I’M HAPPY THIS FINALLY CAME OUT . I ENVY YOUR ORG. FOR THIS, I SAW YOU FEATURED IN MINDANAO CHANNEL IN SKY CABLE AND I WAS SCREAMING, I MUST FIND THIS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THUMBS UP TO YOU! MY GOODNESS! I WANNA HAVE SEX! HAHA
Hi Sir Avel! We’re actually friends on Facebook for some time now and I have been watching out for your announcement for this year’s SEX TOUR 4.0!
Some of the reasons why I’d love to join:
– I’ve never been to any of the places slated for this year. I’ve only been to Davao (will be joining DFAT this year too btw!)
-I would love to prove to my fellow Ilonggos that it is super safe to “lagaw/laag” in GenSan, etc!
-I promise to blog about all the experiences, etc! I’m a blogger so it’s already a given! LOL!
Hope and pray that I’ll be one of the chosen ones! Salamat guid! 🙂
What an attention-grabber acronym for an organization of bloggers. Good luck to you guys! 🙂
I’m interested Sir Avel. 🙂
i like to join SEX Tour 4.0 because
a. I haven’t been to this part of Mindanao. I’ve heard alot of great stories about SOCSARGEN area but don’t have the chance to do so.
b. I really enjoy joining festivals — joined pahiyas, kadayawan, maskara, black nazarene; so I guess it’s time to check out Tuna Festival!
c. meeting new friends from the south
d. I want to photograph this part of Mindanao!
e. and I promise to blog about my experience
hopefully I’m in! =))
hahaha! I hope I can join! Thanks for citing me Sir Avel!
