Sex education is something that’s sorely lacking in the Philippines. It’s the reason why teenage pregnancy is spiking in the Philippines, with over 200,000 Filipino teens getting pregnant every year. The taboo around sex education, sexual health, and sex overall is causing more harm than good. It’s why some are still embarrassed to buy condoms at the convenience store or to talk to their doctor when things down there aren’t working right.

That’s where Dima.ph comes in. The new e-commerce business is focusing on giving Filipinos the information and products they deserve without shame or embarrassment. Can’t get it up? The site has Kadagra for that, a generic version of Viagra usually used to treat erectile dysfunction. Sure, laugh a little. But it’s a common enough condition that men experience. Yet our lack of openness about sexual health has some poor guys trapped in celibacy, when they can just order Viagra to solve their little (or not so little) problem.

For women, Dima has a number of birth control pills in its online shop, with some as low as P50 per pack (good for one month). With Dima, “Dima-bubuntis.” (See what they did there?) There are also pregnancy tests, UTI treatments, and antibiotics for yeast infections and bacterial vaginitis to save yourself from a red-faced visit to the drugstore.

The online shop is centered on being discreet, understanding the nuances of Filipino culture and its complicated relationship with sexual health. Products are packaged discreetly, stapled shut with no text or logo on the package. Dima is all about providing customers with medical information, prescriptions, and products judgment-free.

For women, you can even consult OB-GYNs online for just P600 per booking. There’s also a free option, called Ask Dima, where you can have quick Q&As with Dima’s doctors. At least online, you can save yourself from the discomfort about talking about private situations free of awkward eye contact.

Look, we get that everything from erectile dysfunction to sex can be an uncomfortable conversation, especially in this country, but sexual health is a huge part of overall health. So if you have any concerns, give Dima a try. And own your body.
