This is based on a local folktale about the Tambaloslos. The stories differ very little from each other, men or women would get lost inside the forest and they'd be trapped walking around in circles unless they start to wear their clothes backwards. If they fail to do so, they'll be ravaged by this lust demon. Once, he angered the mountain god Gugurang because of his perverse ways that the god cursed him with privates so grossly enlarged, the demon would have difficulty to use them. He may have been punished but some say he still lingers in the forests tricking people to lose their way till he can pounce on them. This work is part of the Folktale and Folkore series.
