release of sexual tension; achieving sexual satisfaction

"Pagpaparaos" generally pertains to achieving satiety with regards to your sexual urge or appetite. It's like saying "getting it off"...in erotic Tagalog text, this word is used to describe the act of satisfying your urge by having sexual intercourse (usually with someone who isn't very much willing)...the word has acquired quite a sinister "evolved connotation" as it is often used to describe the forceful act done by sex offenders...also to describe the act of self-gratification...

Rather kinky stuff, ain't it, comrade :-)

Pardon me Marcus, but I believed that the terms in question are used in common conversational Tagalog, and so it was to my judgement that the question (as well as the the two other questions) should be relegated to the \"easy\" category. Please be advised, thanks!
