The media hype and the political circus that followed Dr. Hayden Kho’s scandalous sex videos with his ex-lovers had brought pornography right smack into the Filipino livingroom, with TV broadcasts, newspapers, websites and politicians jumping on the fray for ratings, media mileage, and advertising.

The barrage of interviews and news broadcasts in primetime has turned “sex scandal” into a household term, with even young children talking about the issue in school and in their homes. Instead of curbing the spread of the Hayden videos, the media attention and political drumbeating has even aroused the curiosity of people young and old  and — they may even hate to admit — they watched porn.

Consider the case of this group of young children who were caught by police watching the pornographic Hayden Kho videos in a public computer in Cebu City.

Sunstar reports, Minors watch sex video:

POLICE confiscated a computer unit after finding out that it was used for a public viewing of the Katrina Halili-Hayden Kho sex video in an interior portion of Barangay Kamagayan, Cebu City last Friday night.

For a fee of P1 each, a crowd that included minors watched the video on a website.

Investigation and Detective Management Branch (IDMB) Chief George Ylanan of the Cebu City Police Office dispatched a team to Kamagayan, after receiving a call from a concerned citizen about the public viewing.

When a police team led by SPO1 Filomeno Mendaros arrived in the area, they spotted 25 people, including minors, gathered around the computer, watching the video.

The police, however, failed to arrest any of the viewers because they ran away. They brought the confiscated computer to the IDMB office at Camp Sotero Cabahug.

The City Anti-Indecency Board (CAIB) wants Barangay Kamagayan officials to do something about the incident.

Hayden Kho DVD videos now available in streets
The scandal has reached such proportions that the Hayden Kho videos have become bestsellers in the pirated DVDs market. These videos can now be bought in all cities and towns in the Philippines in DVD format, and knowing the practice of this trade, these DVD traders don’t choose whether they will sell these DVDs to minors or not.

The police is now fighting the spread of the videos on the street level.
