Metro's Love and Sex with Doc Rica on FYE Channel on Kumu To Talk About Relationships and Intimacy

Metro's new show on kumu will talk about relationships, intimacy, sexual health, and everything in between. Hosted by sex therapist Dr. Rica Cruz, this is a show that you all have to see!


What are the new rules of dating and intimacy? How do you actually date while you’re in a lockdown? Starting this Thursday, 9PM on FYE Channel on kumu, Metro will talk about these issues on love, sex, and relationships in our new show Love and Sex with Doc Rica!

Hosted by sex therapist and media personality Dr. Rica Cruz, the former Metro.Style love and relationships section editor and host of The Sexy Minds and Conservative Ako podcasts will shed light on issues on sexual health and wellbeing along with special guest experts and personalities.


Relationships in the new normal

There hasn't been a better time than now to talk about sex and relationships, especially with the new challenges brought about by the pandemic. In a study from the University College of London, 22% of adults share that they have experienced a complete breakdown of a relationship in the past year. 

Interestingly enough, it was shown that young adults (18-29 years old) had significant improvements in their relationship compared to adults aged 30-59 and those aged 60 and above; though the other groups have maintained that their relationships have also improved. This could mean that the new normal of working from home could have given opportunities for more time together for couples. 

Expert advice from Doc Rica

Doc Rica is someone who is not afraid to talk about difficult topics—especially sex. She is a sexologist, a sex therapist, and a media personality who is often invited to talk about sex. The former Metro Love & Sex editor was also the featured speaker in last May's successful Metro MomCon in the Sex and Cocktail segment with host Delamar Arias. 

Her expertise focuses on Filipino sexual behaviours with an emphasis on sexual pleasure and relationship satisfaction. She opines that sexual empowerment for Filipinos is sexier than sex.
