Outsourcing, the Philippines, and the Future

Monday, September 25th, 2017

The Philippines is one of top countries when it comes to business process outsourcing companies or BPO companies. First-world countries like the USA, France, and Australia are some of the biggest patrons of the BPO industries services. This makes our top rating quite a big deal for the country. But what is it with this industry that makes it such a hit with well-developed countries? More importantly, what could be lying ahead for the industry?

The Statistics

Asean Briefing reports that the surge in the local BPO industry’s development is due to the country’s relatively low cost of living. Other factors cited are the young, educated, English-speaking Filipinos who make up the workforce.

This ultimately made international reports cast a majority vote that the Philippines is the next up-and-coming top outsourcing choice. The Philippines even replaced Mumbai, one of the oldest and top go-to sources for BPO needs, as the 2nd ranking BPO service provider in 2015.

The industry is currently responsible for 9% of the country’s GDP growth. It is currently employing over 1 million Filipinos. But such number is projected to increase, with an expected 1.3 to 1.5 million more to be employed over the next three years.

The Benefits

Constant patronage of our BPO industry’s services by well-developed nations could only be credited to the numerous benefits.

Cost Effectiveness

BPO service companies are often technologically updated. with experts ready to lend their specialization to companies. Their services cost less expensive. This is if compared to hiring and paying salaries to in-house employees.

Aside from these lower rates, the vendee company won’t have to worry about providing additional space.

Better Focus on Business

Vendee companies can now focus on more “core” business matters. They no longer have to worry about who’s going to do what. No need to be anxious about how they’re going to improve their customer service, for example. Instead, a business owner can concentrate on strategizing for their next campaign or on how they can improve their product/service.


The cost-effective services these BPO service companies aren’t just about getting the job done. Part of their services include constant adaptation to evolving technologies and consumer demand. With their always up-to-date knowledge, skills, and tools, vendee companies can be assured that the service they’re getting is the latest.

Things to Consider Now

It’s been made clear; the BPO industry is a blessing to businesses. With all its positives, though, come some not so favorable thoughts to consider.

Changing Socio-political Landscape

The USA, one of the BPO industries biggest patrons. The country has changed administration and current president Donald Trump’s “Buy American, hire American” platform may endanger the current flourishing of the outsourcing industry.

Trump wants what offshore services formerly provided to be handed over to American workers. Foreigners who want to provide offshore based services now have to acquire specials visas.

As for the local BPO scene, President Rodrigo Duterte has been very vocal about his stance on lessening the presence of the US in the country. Given that the US is our biggest source of BPO-generated income, 64.7% as of February 2017, having to cut or at least lessen ties with them will undoubtedly impact the Philippines’s status as a top investment destination.

The country has definitely got a strong hold on BPO clients, and as things continue to change in an ever-evolving world, business process outsourcing companies can only be optimistic in what lies ahead for the industry. For now, the best step BPO companies can do is to continue to provide the services that catapulted the Philippines into success.

Making a Masturbation Travel Kit

Monday, September 25th, 2017

When a man is in his own comfortable home, he can indulge in a little masturbation with basically no preparation. Everything he needs is right at hand – and that means more than just his own hand. But what about if a guy happens to travel? Now, granted, masturbation really doesn’t demand anything other than that aforementioned hand, but most men tend to employ some other resources to make the experience even more pleasurable. And since masturbation can help both a man’s general health and his penis health, he doesn’t want to refrain from the experience when feeling aroused and alone while on the road. As this is the case, it can pay to prepare a little masturbation travel kit for any trips (especially long ones).

With that in mind, the following tips may come in handy when planning a personal kit.


- Bring lubrication. One of the fun things about staying in many hotels is taking advantage of the personal care products they provide, such as shampoo and conditioner. Many hotels also provide a body or hand lotion, which many solo male travelers use when feeling the need to relieve an insistent erection. But guys may be better off packing a supply of their own preferred lubricant. Penis skin is enormously sensitive and may react negatively to unfamiliar ingredients in the hotel’s lotion. Besides, some hotels don’t provide lotion – and, of course, many trips don’t involve a hotel stay. Sure, a guy who’s visiting his sister can ask his brother-in-law if he has any lotion he could borrow, but the brother-in-law is going to smirk knowingly as he hands it over. And good luck finding a lubricant on a camping trip!

- Bring condoms (especially if camping). Having a condom on hand is a good idea in the event that a guy finds some partner-based fun, but it can be a plus when masturbating, too. This is especially true when camping, as it is easy to forget to pack some tissues – and so clean-up will be easier with a condom.

- Pack toys. More and more men are utilizing sex toys in their masturbation routines. So if a dude favors a cock ring, dildo, penis sleeve, silicon vagina, etc., he should bring them along. One warning: if flying, it may be preferable to include these items in checked luggage, rather than run the risk of them being pulled out of a carry-on bag during the screening process.

- Include stimulating material. Men who typically masturbate to porn may want to include material – or a way to access material – while packing. The easiest way is to include a laptop, tablet or smartphone that can be used to access the adult sites of preference. If that’s not an option, purchasing magazines or books with sexually arousing photos and/or stories may be the route to take. Some men may instead prefer to print out material from some of their favorite online sites. As with toys, packing print material in a checked baggage may be a better idea than stashing them in a carry-on.

- Pack a penis health crème. A masturbation travel kit definitely needs to include a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) – not because the crème is used during masturbation but because it is needed to keep the penis healthy before and after masturbation. Many men end up treating their manhood rather roughly during masturbation, which can require the application of a crème with soothing, moisturizing agents like Shea butter and vitamin E to help repair raw, sore penis skin. All that rough handling may also damage the sensitive nerve endings on the penis, “deadening” the feeling. A crème with L carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient which helps restore lost sensation, can help relieve that unwanted numbness that impacts the sensations a man feels when masturbating.
