Be The Change You Want To See In The Bedroom: Communication Skills For Better Dating and Loving On Campus!

In today’s hyper-sexualized media world and “Ten Ways To Knock His Socks Off” magazine headlines, it’s more confusing than ever figuring out what you like and what works when it comes to sex. Add to it that many adults (because so many of us grew up masturbating silently so we wouldn’t be discovered) have conditioned themselves to be “sexual ninjas” who don’t make a peep in the bedroom, never asking for what they want or asking us what we want. It’s no wonder dating and especially sex have become guessing games where everyone’s the loser.

Join sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko as he lifts the “No Talking” ban in the bedroom and walks us through the communication skill-sets essential to creating the lovelife you’ve only dreamed about. With pragmatic and memorable rules and guidelines, Reid will reveal just how easy it can be to make talking about pleasure, boundaries and safer sex second nature and fun! Reid will also discuss ways you can figure out what feels best to you, what kinds of bedroom activities you might enjoy even if you’ve never dared try them, and how to take the guess work out of figuring out what feels best for your partner. There will also be an extensive question-and-answer period where students are encouraged to ask Reid anything.

All genders, sexual orientations, and curiosity levels welcome.

Non-Conservative Sex: From Taboos to Queer to Kink to Poly and More!

What is “out of the box” these days when it comes to sex? What if you think what turns you on isn’t “normal?” The good news is thinking about all types of sex and wanting to explore “other things” is normal and healthy! However, talking about our desires, knowing where to go for good information, and learning how to explore new things safely can be daunting. It’s not like you can ask your Dean or the graduate TA, right?

Join sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko for a candid conversation about the “other” sex that’s out there. Reid will walk us through an overview of “non-conservative sex” as well as ways you can safely explore your sexuality solo and with others! Topics will include: taboos and fantasies, queer sex, kink and BDSM, open relationships,  threesomes and moresomes, fetishes, masturbation and celibacy. Reid will also discuss tools to figure out what turns you and your partners on and tips for how to ask for what you want. You might be surprised to discover what turns your crank is more common than you think and that sex doesn’t have to be a shameful thing!

All genders, sexual orientations, and curiosity levels welcome!

REID’S “STADIUM SHOW”

Reid’s “stadium show” presentation is designed for schools who regularly bring well-known musical acts or big comedy names to their campuses for large audience events. If your campus would like to entertain hosting a campus-wide, sex edutainment show for audiences of over a one-thousand students, let Reid know. He currently has 2 one-man “sex ed standup” shows that weave his personal life story and observations with sexual assault prevention approaches and inclusive, consent focused sex education. These shows, and their titles and content, are meant to intrigue and attract much of the student body who are starving to feel confident and safe about sex, are already in the habit of attending big “everyone one on campus is going” shows, and who will use the excuse that “it’s a comedy show” to camouflage their desire for sex information.

What Are Students Saying About Reid?

“I am a student at Sweet Briar College and recently drove to Lynchburg’s campus to attend Reid Mihalko’s lecture “How To Be a Gentleman and Still Get Laid.” I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the opportunity to attend, and to thank you for supporting this.

In three years at Sweet Briar, I have never attended a lecture on my own campus or any other that was so informative, or that promoted such refreshingly candid discussion of important issues. Reid Mihalko’s message struck me as extremely appropriate for a campus community to hear, as it is fundamentally one of self-respect and respect for others. I very much admire Lynchburg College’s willingness to sponsor this lecture, and hope that you will continue to promote similarly edifying events in the future.”

“…we spoke last night after the presentation. I just wanted to say that your presentation was inspiring and entertaining. I also wanted to say that I talked to my bf about the tips you gave on communication in and out of the bedroom and he was very receptive. Hopefully we can take what your advise and use it to enhance our relationship further.

I will definitely be recommending you come back next year and hopefully your presentation can become a mainstay at Georgia Southern!”

Yale University logo“To be honest, I mostly came to Reid’s presentation out of morbid curiosity. What teenager doesn’t want to sit and listen to someone spend two hours telling her how to have better sex? But my attendance at the talk was also partially motivated by my eagerness to see if Reid could put on a fun, engaging and, yes, sexy performance without undermining the importance of respect, consent, and safety in sexual encounters. Having spent years educating my fellow teens about dating violence, I know how vital it is to keep a presentation enjoyable, but not too goofy that it gets in the way of serious subject matter. It’s a fine like to walk, and I wanted to see if Reid could walk it.

Well, he walked it. The audience was engrossed from start to finish — most didn’t even notice it was nearing 1:00 AM. But not only did Reid convey information about how to make sex better, he did it while seamlessly incorporating how to make it smarter, too. He interwove the theme of taking care of oneself and others into nearly every slide and presented in a way that made it extremely attractive to students. There is a myth that respect, consent, and safety are “uncool” and get in the way of fun sex; Reid busted it without being preachy, and students left the lecture hall believing that all three make sex even more worthwhile.”

What Are Administrators Saying About Reid?

University of California Santa Barbara logo“We have never had a crowd of fraternity men attend a CARE event in such numbers – and actually stay engaged the whole time! Using a combination of humor, personal stories and research-based evidence, Reid got a group of 100+ students to sit up, turn their phones off and pay attention for two hours. He was able to navigate the difficult topics of male privilege, rape culture, consent and masculinity without losing anyone in the audience. Reid uses a sex positive approach to bring men into this crucial conversation as part of the solution, giving them a space and a voice in violence prevention efforts. You know an event has been effective when students and staff are continuing to talk about it weeks after the event, and Reid has definitely sparked discussion about positive cultural shifts at our campus. Thank you, Reid!”
