The dukligan or fertility hut is located next to the Cafe. In traditional Ifugao practice,couples stay there for a month so as to mate. If the woman fails to conceive within that period, the man is allowed to sleep with another woman without forfeiting the marriage. Same goes with the woman, she can sleep with another man to find out which of them is infertile.Talk about ingenuity in the absence of technology.
