Since Money was a big motive, two ramifications come to mind.

One families likely made it compulsory for the boy to compete. He was treated like a whore with his family as his pimp - trade your naked body for money which I, as your pimp, will keep.

Second, there could well have been follow-on abuse if he didnít win. He could be accused of not trying hard enough and being too distracted by his humiliation. We all can imagine where that can lead as the parents try to help him overcome his humiliation in prep for next years race. Maybe keep him naked in public as much as possible to get him used to it.

That continual humiliation technique has been threatened many times by Mothers in posts on this site when the boy resists. While there may be some truth in this helping him overcome humiliation since now his life is nothing but humiliation, there is certainly evil in it as well. And I would think negative repercussions to all relationships between the abusers and the boy.

John, you may be comforted to know that there are lots of Philippine people who say the same thing:

Thanks for the links, George. It is nice to know my reaction is not out of left field because I am an American and am applying my cultural values on another culture. While that is true, it is nice to see people in their own country condemning it.

In fact, the organizers of the event in San Mateo were tried for child abuse in 2011:
