MAPANGAHAS ang Men of Provoq!

MAPANGAHAS ang Men of Provoq!

VIVA most probably thinks Viva Hotmen is dated and pass� so they have a new name for their current sexy hunks of ten � Men of Provoq.

The boys have their baptism with their initial video, Provoq: Voyeur.

And if you�re wondering what it carries and what it�s all about, the video cover itself carries a teaser: "Ten most provocative Men in their most private moment."

The Tagalogs have an apt word for it � "mapangahas." Yes, it�s a tease.

It seems that director Monti Parungao and his assistant RS Francisco (of Sibak fame kaya?) know their target audience with this "strictly for adults, strictly for sale, not rental or public exhibition" note.


It seems that only Justin de Leon is a carry-over from the Viva Hotmen of the recent past with his other videos (Erotika, Sex Guru) and films (Pinoy Kamasutra with Katya Santos, Reyna with Keanna Reeves).

Justin is the Rockstar, the fifth in this collection of macho tales.

Two "college-boy" faces are familiar to us � Johnron Ta�ada and Chester Nolledo who are in the cast of Mel Chionglo�s Twilight Dancers.

Johnron has some titles behind him � Mr. Globe Philippines 2005 and Man of the Year 2005, first runner-up.

He at 20 has a better physique now � with a bigger chest and a 29" waist. "Noon, may baby fats pa ako," says Johnron who finished his Marine Transportation studies at PMI. Mell Navarro is his manager.

Chester Nolledo was earlier in the stage revue Ilusyonada with IC Mendoza in the title role, which Soxy Topacio directed.

Johnron is the Kanto Boy lost in the world of sex and night, the third episode while Chester, the College Boy, all by himself in his room.


Mark Anthony Logan at 23, hails from Taytay, Rizal. He�s 5�11" and he models, a talent of George Roca.

It took him three hours to shoot his episode, Yuppie (the 7th), in the Viva office. From suit stripping to his birthday suit before a computer is indeed a private moment for him.

Tall (6�2") Raymond Lee doesn�t cook but models but he�s the Chef, the 8th in the collection. He is a talent of Emil Sandoval (yes, the actor).

The impressive collection also varies features on the Weekender (Josh Morales) who is romancing with Nature in Wawa Dam, a kept Bachelor (Dennis McIrwin) in a mansion, a Stripper (John Miller) in his rented room and a Masseur (Gabriel del Rosario) plus a Hiphop Bro (Niko Arellano) who seeks the love and care he misses.

Of course, these hunks have their "props" � Hazel Cabrera, Maricar dela Fuente, Anna Scott, Mara Daniega and Scarlet Garcia.

These weekend nights, the video collection will be launch in some Makati bars.


TODAY: The press launch of the Nora Aunor website at 4:00 p.m. at the Mowelfund Plaza at 66 Rosario Drive, New Manila, Quezon City.


ONE-LINER: I love mornings � it makes me think of the value of life. It asks me to live not yesterday�s sorrows nor tomorrow�s dreams but today�s blessings.
