Sexy Talk with Erik Santos
FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo (The Philippine Star) Updated September 22, 2010 12:00 AM
While his contemporaries (Mark Bautista, Christian Bautista, et al) have loosened up and thrown clothes and caution to the wind, Erik Santos insists that he’s not ready to pursue that “daring” direction yet, even if he’s marking his late 20s on 10-10-10.
“Is anybody stopping me from going sexy?” Erik asks. “No. Basta wala pa lang ako sa kondisyon.”
His advance birthday concert set for Sept. 24 and 25 at the Meralco Theater is titled The Power of One (with Regine Velasquez and the UP Singing Ambassadors as guests on both shows; and Martin Nievera and Rachelle Ann Go on the first night, and Piolo Pascual on the second night), so you wonder, where does his power emanate from?
“My throat,” says Erik, joking. He means his singing voice, although his fans are convinced that Erik spices that up with his own brand of sex appeal.
Will he show a little flesh in his show?
“Well, there are ‘surprises’,” Erik promises. “You will be surprised.”
Unlike Gary Valenciano who, observed Funfare readers, acted “dainty and demure” in a previous “sexy talk,” Erik is playful in a teasing way, not putting on a “saintly” posture at all.
What is sexy to you?
“It’s not just physical but overall. A woman may not be physically beautiful but if she knows how to carry herself, she can be sexy.”
What makes you feel sexy?
“I feel sexy when I am about to go to sleep. I wear only boxers shorts with nothing underneath, covered by a comforter.”
What’s on your mind in a moment like that?
“Hmmmmmm…nothing obscene; just a little pampaantok.”
Name three women who are sexy to you.

Sexiest sound (musical instrument).
“Saxophone. Kapag naririnig ko, para bang nakikipag-sex ako. That’s why I love listening to Kenny G.”
During your intimate moments with somebody, do you play Kenny G’s CD as musical background?
“No, I don’t. Moaning lang ang maririnig mong sound. Hahahahaha!”
“Those by Kenny G pa rin.”
“Eleven Minutes by Paolo Coelho. It’s about a girl who aspires to be a star but ends up a prostitute.”
“The Phenomenon (1996), starring John Travolta.”
