Thank you for being so amazing.

There are days when I’m tired, or frustrated, and its thoughts of you and your devotion to having amazing relationships that get me back at my computer, planning ways I can help make your life and love better.

I appreciate your curiosity and your desire to create a more loving and intimate world for yourself and those you love. You keep showing up and making the changes that make the difference!

By now, you know I’ve got a penchant for “the meta”… Meaning, I love to point out what’s going on behind “the curtain” of how we subconsciously operate and behave as humans. And I like teaching about teaching, and geeking out about geeking out! Why? Because, when you love scouring the world for new ideas and skills, and taking those new skills and ideas and pouring them over all the “old ideas” and what we know about being human… Well, you end up taking things to a whole new, next level.

That being said, let me do just that for you around the often never talked about but incredibly simple and powerful world of… Appreciation.

Most people were taught that to get appreciation, they had to work really hard and hope. My approach can leave you and those around you feeling powerful, seen and heard… Leave them warm and loved with appreciation. AND, you end up teaching your loved ones (yourself included!) how to get their own needs met better so you don’t have to be a mind-reader!

Behold: The Appreciation Game!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q67k0YXiAAo

The Appreciation Game can transform how you get your needs met and how well (and quickly) you can fill your partner’d, friends’, co-workers’, and kids’ needs.

Would you let me know what you think? And what you appreciate about this topic?

Appreciation can light people up. The Appreciation Game can transform how you get your needs met and how well (and quickly) you can fill your partner, friends, co-workers, and kids needs. Reid Mihalko from http://www.ReidAboutSex.com and Cathy Vartuli from http://www.TheIntimacyDojo.com share.

Reid: This just in. You know who you are. We won’t say your name but you left this comment, “I never comment in these but I always watch and absolutely adore this channel.” You’ll be watching this video. We’re talking to you. You rock.

Cathy: Thank you.

Reid: Thank you for leaving your first comment or whatever comment it was and for watching these videos. We know who you are and we’re talking to you. You’re amazing. I’m Reid Mihalko from http://ReidAboutSex.com.

Cathy: I’m Cathy Vartuli from http://TheIntimacyDojo.com.

Reid: We don’t know what we’re talking about. We just hit record because we wanted to thank you. That goes to all of you who watch, who never left a comment, we like you too.

Cathy: We can talk about appreciation.

Reid: Appreciation. What would you like to be appreciated for, Cathy?

Cathy: I would like to be appreciated for my patience.

Reid: Really?

Cathy: Yes.

Reid: Cathy Vartuli, I would like to appreciate you for your patience.

Cathy: Thank you.

Reid: Thank you for being patient with me in times that I have tried your patience.

Cathy: Yes, you have. Thank you for …

Reid: That’s a lot.

Cathy: What would you like to be appreciated for, Reid?

Reid: I would like to be appreciated for shooting these videos when I’m often cranky and don’t want to shoot them because when we hit record, it changes my mood. I want to be appreciated for showing up.

Cathy: Thank you very much for showing up. I appreciate you, Reid.

Reid: Thank you. I want to appreciate you for showing up through my cranky pantsness to shoot the videos.

Cathy: Thank you. It’s worth it. It’s fun.

Reid: It is. That little game, what can I be appreciated for? I would like to be appreciated for, let’s just teach that.

Cathy: My old method was I go, “Well, I worked really hard.” I would kind of hint at things or I would appreciate someone else with the hopes of being appreciated back. It didn’t work a lot. Or if I did get appreciation, it wasn’t for the thing I wanted. I love this example. Reid’s like just go up and ask somebody.

Reid: Train your communities, your friends, your families, your kids if you have kids, to ask for appreciation by doing this, “I would like to be appreciated.” Then you reply, “What would you like to be appreciated for?” Their job is to tell you specifically what it is they want to be appreciated for and then you get present with them and appreciate them for that thing. Then usually, people will argue, “Oh, it doesn’t feel organic.” Listen, dropping hints …

Cathy: Is not okay.

Reid: In trying to get people to pick up hints and then appreciate you for the wrong thing, that just sucks. That’s not organic at all.

Cathy: It doesn’t feel very powerful.

Reid: Then you get resentful. Asking for things clearly but building in and this is where the kick back is or the payoff, when you role model for your friends and family and your community that it’s okay to ask specifically for what they want to be appreciated for, they will often come to you and be really specific about when they need to be appreciated which then you get to win, they win and then you can stop reading their minds and listening for weird hints.

Cathy: When our tanks are low, it’s harder to be kind and present and generous with people. I know when my tanks are low, I’m crankier. I’m just not as fun to be around for myself or others. When I ask for what in need and my tanks get filled up, I just feel good. Sometimes, if I see Reid being cranky, I’ll say, “Hey, do you need to be appreciated for something?”

Reid: I’ll say no. No. You didn’t get any of my hints. All right, maybe I…okay. I would like to be appreciated for such and such.

Cathy: Usually if I appreciate him for being amazing and awesome and incredibly generous with his time.

Reid: I’d be grudgingly feel just a little better.

Cathy: Make it genuine though. I’m not appreciating him just because, if you fake it, people can tell. Look for the real appreciation. The real genuine stuff.

Reid: If you’re really scrubbing the bottom of the boat because you’re like, “Oh my God, why don’t you just get it? Why do you always come to me with this appreciation?” The winning thread is if I appreciate them, if I really thank them for telling me what they needed, oh, they’re telling me exactly what they need. That saves me a buttload of bullshit later from them being cranky because I couldn’t figure out their hint. “Oh my goodness, I really can thank you. I really can appreciate you for needing appreciation about this thing that you brought me. Thank you so much.”

Cathy: And trusting, to be vulnerable and requesting something, that’s really heartfelt.

Reid: That changes relationships over time. Leave your comments. What would you like to be appreciated for right now?

Cathy: Come back. We have another video on a similar topic that’s going to rock your world.

Reid: We do?

Cathy: Yes.

Reid: Amazing.

Are you ready to take an intensive weekend of FEARLESS RELATING with three of the most dynamic relationship geeks on the planet today? Come blow your mind and open your heart with vulnerability diva Monique Darling, reality hacker Lawrence Lanoff and sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko.

If you could have anything, do anything, what would you choose? What do you really want? What is keeping you from having it? Is someone else better qualified? better looking? more financially stable? Do you have “problems”? What if every limit you have, every chain that binds you, is only there because you believe it is? What if the limits disappear, the chains dissolve?. Your life is alive with an abundance of possibilities, opportunities, and potential all you have to do is be willing to say “yes”.

So much of the fear and hesitation in life comes not from the self, but from fretting about what others may think,or what they will say or whom they might share it with afterwards rather than being able to enjoy the moment. Another set of fears come from passed-down beliefs that we accept without questioning them. 

What if you could make decisions and follow your heart…follow your body and your desires without worrying about what others thought? What if you were fearless in relating – first, to yourself and then, to others? 

We all have feelings of ferocity and tenderness, but we must feel safe in order to be vulnerable and intimate with another. Part of that safety is being confident in our own ability to say ‘NO’ and take a stand for our boundaries. Only then can we play in the realm of our true ‘HELL YES!’

Come join us for a unique weekend of exploration around such topics as:

  • How do we establish boundaries and create safe space for ourselves to explore with others? 
  • Shifting paradigms from blame, shame, guilt & judgement, to love, acceptance, understanding and presence.
  • Factors that promote or inhibit intimacy
  • The power of no and boundary (understand why your “no” says more about you than your “yes”)

In this workshop you will learn, play, and practice: 

  • To ask for what you want, skillfully, without attachment to the response.
  • To honor, respect, and be grateful for the answer “no”, and still be hopeful for the answer “yes”.
  • To be honest and vulnerable about your wants and desires without shame, without deflection, without armor.
  • To hold space for someone who has not yet learned these skills.
  • To own your fears, instead of them owning you.
  • To not be afraid to be the one who loves the most
  • To learn to be even more vulnerable when you want to isolate or close down.
  • Release shame and haunting memories
  • Modalities of communication: verbal and non verbal

You will gain tools and leave with the ability to relate with everyone in your life with more ease, grace, and blissful contentment from your own center.

Are you confused about dating, mating, and relating in the 21st Century? Dating, marriage and the reasons we stay in relationships have changed a lot since the days of our great grandparents. Join us for this humorous, frank and informative, intensive workshop where sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko boils down over 150,000 conversations he’s had about sex and relationships and walks us through his best thinking and advice on making sex, dating, relationships and mating work!
Participants will leave this interactive workshop experience discovering:

  • Tools to determine if someone is a good or horrible fit for you…
  • Communication Skills to ask for what they want and how to avoid past relationship mistakes…
  • A few of Reid’s, Monique’s and Lawrence’s “black belt” relationship tips and tricks!

Then, let Monique Darling, Consent Geek Extraordinaire, lead you through all of the tools, tips, tricks and how to uplevel the questions you are asking yourself and others to truly be able to find and live from your own “Hell Yes”!! Monique has been leading Cuddle Parties (just facilitated her 336th) all over the country, which are 3 1/2 hours of practicing this concept.

How amazing would it be to live life offering every “no” without apology and every “yes” without being ashamed? Learn that it really isn’t about anyone else, it’s about tuning in and taking care of you, and then you can relate with ease and joy with others, wherever they are at.

And Radical Self Acceptance Master Mind Lawrence Lanoff will, bring his own unique perspective from years of teaching inner inquiry, experiential exploration, and infinite curiosity into just how GOOD we can feel in our body. Lawrence will relate how the underlying framework of belief is a major influence of our ability to experience pleasure.

Learning better sexual technique will boost your sexual self-confidence, raise your self-esteem, and make you more confident and competent in sex and love! Being THAT kind of person is attractive in AND out of the bedroom! Part of the weekend will cover how to increase your sexual self-confidence ten-fold and start becoming a more attractive, self-expressed and fearless person in all your relationships!

Through no nudity, interactive, hilariously “edutaining” demonstrations, you will learn:

  • How to use fantasy to turbo-charge a lover’s orgasm…
  • How to listen to your partner’s body in bed…
  • How to create your own “sexual positions decoder ring” so you naturally “think” about lovemaking in an exciting, Kama Sutra way!
  • How to slow down sexual experience for greater pleasure learning to STOP judging ourselves and our partners
  • Understanding how to expand our own sexual energy and our PLEASURE Body
  • Opening to Full Body Energy Orgasms
  • Learning how to clear and tap into the central core meridians of the body
  • The different stories you and others are telling about your sexual identity
  • Developing Emotional and Sexual Safety for Intimacy
  • 5 tips that will give you oral sex super powers!
  • 3 Powerful Perspectives that will help you understand pleasure and orgasm, and how to give and receive both!
  • 3 ways to use your hands sexually that will drive your partner wild AND leave you feeling more confident as a lover!
  • 2 BIG differences between penises and vulvas, and 1 thing that’s the same that will make you 10-times better in bed…
  • And still more!

If you ever begin to understand who you are, you could not possibly ever compare yourself to another, to envy, wish to impress, to BE different than you are. For in the beauty, wonder, and awe at discovering how magnificent “your” puzzle pieces fit together, at the ever changing infinite ways YOU shift, dance, and weave together, each one so unique, so extraordinary, it would take an entire lifetime to only just begin to discover. Yet so often we abandon the quest of self discovery, to follow another, or to invest in relationships, doing what we have been told is the “right” way to be. The greatest freedom that we could ever express or imagine, is by simply giving ourselves permission to gently keep returning to us and we can transform the world by simply being 100% ourselves.

Come with an open heart and a willingness, a longing, to bring your stories into the light, so that they can stop you running away from your shadow.

There will be times, over the weekend, when the atmosphere will be sensual and energetically sexual. All activities and exercises will be guided and are always optional. You can participate in the workshop solo, with a partner and in small groups. All participants are asked to practice with each other, or by oneself, in whatever manner supports you best. Many options will be offered to support each individual experience.

This could be the last time these three fearless, relating mentors get together for a while, so set your sights on registering for this breakthrough weekend, and get a three for the price of one deal by paying only what it ordinarily cost to learn from just one of these facilitators.

So say ‘HELL YES’ to discovering ‘YOU’

Romance For The Rest Of Us http://reidaboutsex.com/romance-for-the-rest-of-us/ http://reidaboutsex.com/romance-for-the-rest-of-us/#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 02:41:41 +0000 http://reidaboutsex.com/?p=6349

Just Getting AlongReady for romance tips and insights that will help you delight your partner, open their heart, and maybe get you both lucky?!

Join Cathy Vartuli from http://www.TheIntimacyDojo.com as she asks sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko from http://www.ReidAboutSex.com for Romance tips and suggestions.

Cathy:  Welcome everyone, this is Cathy Vartuli from http://TheIntimacyDojo.com, here with Reid Mihalko from http://ReidAboutSex.com. And today we’re talking about romance.

Reid: Yes.

Cathy: Do you have a couple quick tips you can give?

Reid: Yes, I do! I teach a workshop on this. I think it’s very interesting when you start talking about romance. So my quick tips: Stop thinking about romance, like a “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus” thing because romance is easier if you don’t think about it as a gender issue.

Cathy: Right.

Reid: Mostly because, when you start thinking about things in terms of gender, it can really easily trigger people that you’re pissed off at. Like, not trigger them – well, it can trigger them too – but trigger you about, you know, “My four ex-boyfriends or my ex-girlfriend, they all did…” you know, fill in the blank.

Cathy: And you start comparing and contrasting.

Reid: Yeah, and then you’re just angry.

Cathy: Yeah.

Reid: So I like to think of romance from the perspective of something a little bit kookier. Go figure right? I come up with kooky.

Cathy: Reid? Yes.

Reid: Think about romance like you’re either a dog or a cat. Now there’s probably otters and penguins and things like that, but don’t go there yet.

Cathy: Any ostriches?

Reid: Yeah, that too. So the idea of… Think of romance from a perspective that you’re oriented like a cat, when it comes to romance. Or I’m a dog, and the distinction is… Because it has nothing to do with men or women, because some men are like this; some women are like this too.

A cat… What is romantic to a cat is anything that proves I was thinking about you before you walked into the room. All of a sudden, that kind of forethought is romantic. “Oh! You were thinking about me.”

Cathy: Can you give us a couple of examples?

Reid: I will, in a minute. Okay, and anything like a “dog” orientation is, dogs find it romantic, anything that affirms them or approves them, like you’re a good dog. That’s like “Oh, I’m a good dog.”

Now where the wires get crossed is, dogs – for those of us who are dog owners – they’re not thinking of us until we put the keys in the door. And then they’re SO happy you’re home! “Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! ” Best thing ever!

Cathy: (laughing)

Reid: That’s not very romantic to a cat. The cat’s like, “Why weren’t you thinking of me before you heard the keys in the door?” The dog’s like “What do you mean? You’re here right now! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Best thing ever!”

Cathy: (laughing)

Reid: The example, in a strict dating sense, is – and we’ll gender it for the example, right? – you and I have a date night.

Cathy: Uh huh.

Reid: And then… It’s date night, and we get together, and I’m like, “So where do you want to go for dinner?” and you’re like “(inhales) You didn’t even take the time to make a reservation.”

Cathy: Yeah.

Reid: Now as a dog, the reason I didn’t take the time to make a reservation is because I don’t know what you want to eat tonight, when we booked this, you know, however many days ago!

Cathy: Mmm hmm.

Reid: So I’m being thoughtful in that I am leaving the decision for the time of, so that I can check in and make sure that you get exactly what you want.

Cathy: So it sounds like communication could really help that, so if I know that you didn’t choose a restaurant because you were hoping that we’ll find something that really pleases me that night, I’m not going to be as frustrated.

Reid: Yeah. And if I know that, it’s actually not about what we eat….

Cathy: Right.

Reid: …but that I thought of you.

Cathy: Yes.

Reid: Then I might be able to beef up my end of it, and think ahead. Admittedly, a little harder for dogs, because we’re not normally thinking of you to begin with.

Cathy: Mmm hmm.

Reid: And that’s so unromantic. But we mean well and we’re very loyal. Like, in the moment, most of us really do really care what you want.

Cathy: Yeah.

Reid: So for those of you who are oriented like dogs, the flip side of this example is, you’re at work, you’re focused, you’re getting your stuff done, and your new lover or partner calls, and they’re a cat person, and you’re a dog, and they call and they’re like “Hi,” and you’re like “Yep? What’s up?”

Cathy: (laughing)

Reid: I just called to tell you I was thinking of you, and you’re like “Why are you calling to tell me that you’re thinking of me?” “Well, I just thought it’d be nice.” And then, “I’m busy!”

Cathy: Yeah.

Reid: And they’re calling to tell you that they’ve been thinking of you because thoughtfulness in that way is how they show that they care, and that’s romantic to them, but for a dog person, we’re like “What’s going on? I don’t know why you’re…”

Cathy: “Now you’re checking up on me?”

Reid: Yeah, like, “What’s up?” So when you can know which one you identify with… And think of it as a continuum. There are some people who are kind of in the middle.

Cathy: Yeah. I like affirmations. I like being told I did a good job.

Reid: Yeah.

Cathy: And I love it when someone plans ahead.

Reid: Yeah. It’s very thoughtful. So those are my quick tips. Figure out which one you are, and then try to figure out which one your partner is, or the people that you’re dating, which ones they are. The other thing is to check out the book, “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman, because it talks about different ways that you show that you care or like to feel cared for. And then if you’re in love with a cat person, you find out what their love languages are, and then do a bunch of those things before they get into the room.

Cathy: Mmm hmm.

Reid: And then if you’re a cat person in love with a dog, you basically find their love languages, and you tell them that they’re a good dog.

Cathy: In the moment.

Reid: In those languages, in the moment.

Cathy: So if they love receiving gifts, you’d give them a gift in the moment, and say “That was really beautiful, I appreciate it.”

Reid: Yeah, but you buy them a gift that affirms what they’re into and what they like.

Cathy: Yeah.

Reid: Not a gift that you think they would like. That doesn’t tell them that they’re a good dog.

Cathy: Yes.

Reid: So that’s my quick stuff on romance. Your mileage may vary, and know that I’m not thinking about you.

Cathy: (laughing) Thanks, Reid!

Poly PaloozaJoin me for Kamala Devi’s 4-day festival for free lovers: POLY-PALOOZA!

Want to experiment in community, connection and compersion?

PolyPalooza is an advanced, 4-day community building and educational festival focusing on non-monogamy happening in Desert Hotsprings, California, with Kamala Devi and nearly all her lovers on Oct. 9-13th 2014.

Here are my favorite FIVE “Top 10 Reasons” to join me from Kamala Devi’s (PolyPalooza’s creatrix) website…

Kalama’s Top 10 Reasons WHY free lovers don’t want to miss the opportunity to immerse themselves in such an intensive sex positive celebration of Non-Monogamy

My favorite five are…

10) HANG OUT WITH FAMOUS PEOPLE!

The entire San Diego cast of Showtime’s hit docu-series: Polyamory: Married & Dating will be there soaking, dancing, studying, eating, sleeping and playing together! (OK They may not be that famous, but they do ‘get around’ in the Poly world.) Where else can you access such intimate connections with people that have mad experience successfully navigating complex poly relationships. There will be dozens of role models and mentors who are eager to play with you!

9) GET NAKED!

Emotionally and physically. We are doing a Total Resort take-over so that we can soak nude in the mineral spring water pools! Sun decks and event rooms are a clothing optional environments. Since this is not normally a nudist resort, we will be closing it off to the public. We still suggest you cover yourself while walking to and from the pools, because there will still be hotel staff on the premises. All overtly sexual play is reserved for the sacred sexual play parties, Red Room of Pleasure and/or your private room.

8) GET ONSTAGE!

San Diego Tantra Theater will be putting on a live Polyamory performance art. We use song, dance, comedy and improv to entertain and enlighten you. This troupe is made up of artists, healers and teachers whose mission is to transmute sexual guilt, fear and shame into art, healing and liberation. And after an engaging journey we will open the stage for a community talent show!

2) MEET YOUR TRIBE!

Since Poly Palooza 2014 will be a wild fun whirlwind, we don’t really know what is going to happen, but one thing is certain: you will connect with a world wide tribe of love leaders! You may meet new friends, soul mates or friends with bennies. Whether you come alone or with your lovers, you are guaranteed to leave with deep bonds that will last a lifetime.

And the #1 reason to go to Poly Palooza… (drum roll…)

1) CHANGE THE WORLD!

You will be so deeply immersed in a utopic experience of love that you will forever change the fibers of your being. We will support you in creating a daily practice so that when you go home you can keep your heart open in any and all circumstances. This event will not only change your personal love-life, but influence the future of humanity!
