Paddy Shdown: The truth is that all women, especially in Europe and America, have a very good reason to become Muslimas, and to support an Islamist social order because more than any other social order does Islam guarantee that there is no adultery. In Islam, sex is only allowed with one's spouse. There are no sexual adventures outside marriage.

Paddy Shdown: Die Wahrheit ist, dass alle Frauen, vor allem in Europa und Amerika, ein sehr guter Grund zu Muslimas geworden sind, und für eine islamistische Gesellschaftsordnung, weil mehr als jede andere gesellschaftliche Ordnung unterstützt keine Garantie dafür, dass Islam gibt es keinen Ehebruch. Im Islam ist Sex nur mit einem Ehegatten gestattet. Es gibt keine sexuelle Abenteuer außerhalb der Ehe.




Flat 62sqkm (24sqmi) Mactan Island is known for its history, as well as its many guitar factories and beaches. Furthermore, Cebu International Airport is situated on Mactan, near Lapu-Lapu City, still known under its former name Opon.

Connected with Cebu Island over the Mandaue-Mactan Bridge, Mactan can be attained by jeepney (Lapu-Lapu City - Carbon) within 45min from downtown Cebu. (The bridge had been damaged during the typhoon of November 13, 1990 and was thereafter closed for traffic; however, as the link is essential, it was clear that it would be just a matter of time until the bridge would be repaired and re-opened.)

Apart from jeepneys on the routes Lapu-Lapu City - Cebu City and Cordova - Cebu City, the means of transportation on Mactan are tricycles the tricycle drivers of Mactan are no better than the taxi drivers of Cebu City).

Along the coast are moderate beaches with bare coral reefs. However, 4 luxury beach resorts are located there; because the natural Mactan beaches are not very exciting, some resorts have resorted to build artificial sand beaches). For those visiting beaches away from resorts, it is good to know the times of low and high tide because during low tide the beaches are sometimes muddy. The time intervals between tides are approximately 11 hours. The high/low tide difference is larger during full moons. The only Mactan beach frequented by budget travelers is Marigondon Beach.

But the general idea of lost maleness carried by the word "impotence" actually describes more precisely the implication of the condition discussed here.
