Sex and Dating U.: What High School and My Parents Never Prepared Me For!

You did it! You escaped your parents, put those high school halls behind you and now you’re free at last! Unfortunately, you’re realizing just how poorly Cosmo magazine and MTV have prepared you for the dating and sex’ing scene on campus!

Join sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko as he gives you the crash course in dating, relationships and sex on campus! He’ll cover a wide variety of topics, including pragmatic advice on sexual anatomy and health, navigating crushes, falling in love, dating, breaking the ice, breaking-up, drinking and sex, orgasms, improving relationship communication skills, and how it all fits together. There will be an extensive question-and-answer period where students are encouraged to ask Reid anything.

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.

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!

A Case for Show-N-Tell Sex Education: Why Visual Learners Today Are Screwed When It Comes To Sex, Dating, Porn and Relationships

On today’s campuses, the majority of students grew up experiencing federally funded, abstinence-only sex education. There is also a greater percentage of students today in school than ever before who’ve grown up in families where relationship and communication skills were “less than sterlingly modeled.” These young adults are also the “digital native” generation, those who’ve only ever known a world with internet and cellphones.

The visual learners among us turn to internet porn to round-out their sex education without realizing that pornography is horrible teaching medium. Add on to this the casual, rebellious streak inherent in most young adults, and social freedoms that come with college life, and you’ve got a situation ripe for sexual miscommunication, relationship anxiety, peer pressures, and low relationship self-confidence and sexual self-esteem.

Join sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko as he makes a case for “Show-N-Tell” sex education, why it’s so controversial and yet so needed, how learning styles can be leveraged to improve sex education in today’s sex negative culture, and how easy it is to empower men and women today with frank, pragmatic sexual health information that releases shame rather than reinforces it.

From Straight to Bent to Queer: A Personal Sex History Revealed

What’s it like growing up the captain of every sports team you ever played on, losing your virginity to your high school sweetheart and on track to getting married, only to realize during college that you’re sexuality and relationship style is a waaaaaaaay more complex than you were ever raised to believe? Join sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko as he shares his personal coming out journey, a sexual renaissance that began in college, lead to a year in a sex and love addicts 12-step program, and climaxed with bringing his boyfriend AND girlfriend home for Thanksgiving!

Filled with lots of laughter, Reid will share how he handled sexual shame, figured out what kind of queer “his queer” was, his take on sex addiction, and how and why he came out to his parents and friends, as well as sex and dating tips for queer folk.

Doin’ The Nasty: From Basics to Black Belt Techniques In The Bedroom and Beyond!

Everything I Learned About Relationships, I Learned From Dating Several People At Once: Useful Lessons on Relationships From A Polyamorist

Open relationships aren’t just for “playing the field” anymore. For some, dating several people at once is an effective strategy for narrowing it down to one; for others it’s just plain fun and a great way to discover what you want out of relationships to begin with. And, for some, juggling multiple relationships is the way they want to live and love… No matter what your relationship self-expression is, the skill sets that allow anyone to have several romantic relationships running smoothly and consensually (polyamory) are the same skill sets that it takes to have one relationship work well.

Join sex and relationship Reid Mihalko as he shares his personal journey of relationship self-discovery from monogamy to polyamory, and how loving more than one person at once helped him save his friend’s monogamous marriage. Reid will cover the basics of open relationships and dating as well as how you can use the skills essential for sustainable open relationships to enhance and improve all your monogamous relationships and your dating. From monogamy to swinging, from long distance relationships to moving in together, from to hooking-up to getting married, Reid will illuminate in this humorous and insightfully pragmatic talk, how you can get your PhD in love and relationships!
