MANILA, Philippines – Administration candidate Gilbert Teodoro served notice to the public about his health, but remained mum about his sex life.

Together with Senator Richard Gordon, presidential standard-bearer of Bagumbayan party, Teodoro faced health professionals in a recent forum in Medical City in Pasig City and answered queries on his physical condition.

But asked if he still has a sex life despite the heavy schedule of the campaign, Teodoro said, “That is within the protective sphere of privacy.”

Gordon, however, quipped, “You don’t want me to brag here, do you?”

Teodoro disclosed to the audience that he was hypertensive and has high blood sugar for which he was taking medicines. He also said he needed a checkup for his gallbladder.

“I have a good fortune of inheriting a lot of things from my parents, including hypertension and high blood sugar, for which I take maintenance medicine everyday. Aside from gallbladder that needs to be taken out as soon as I have time, I’m okay,” he said.

Gordon said he was stricken with a sore throat that he got from campaigning, but apart from this, he was physically fit. He said his doctor, who was among the audience, could attest to his physical condition.

During the forum, Teodoro also said he favored government funding for both natural and modern methods of family planning. Gordon, however, said the government should not spend money for condoms. He said the government should instead use the money for education.
