Dating the Reality and the Illusion with Reid Mihako

What I found particularly impactful:  your insight into women and your enthusiasm in conveying it. Most men simply don’t have your insight.

Your talk was about how to have “hot sex with your clothes on”. You cited an example of a man exciting a woman, then taking her out (postponing immediate gratification to get to a bigger payoff later). You spoke about how, if a man really wants to make love to a woman, it involves not merely her body but her mind. I think these female fundamentals escape most men.   You’ve got it down!  So, my best to you in spreading the word.

Chris from San Mateo had this to say about Speed-Flirting:

Thanks for your awesome class!!! I had fun… but I didn’t know how well it worked until the next evening (last night!) when a woman walked up to me, engaged my attention, I engaged her attention, I navigated a period of apparent uncertainty in her and kept her talking till she became more comfortable, we connected, I offered my phone number and she accepted! Wow!!! I don’t think it would’ve turned out that way before the class.

Reid Mihalko’s Sex Educator Showdown!

2hrs, Co-ed workshop for college students, organizations and gatherings – all orientations, all relationship styles

Promotional blurb: What better way to learn about practical sex education that you can actually use than to watch two sex educators literally go head to head? Let’s face it, sex is one of the few things we’re not allowed to learn by watching others. You go to a fancy dinner. You don’t know which spoon to use. You watch to see what spoon everyone else uses… But don’t know what to do how in the bedroom, or want to add a few tricks to your repertoire? No such luck!

In this entertaining, informational, guaranteed-to-be-funny and friendly “competitive” throwdown between Reid and a local sex educator, we’ll let the audience watch, take notes, ask questions, and, when the dust finally settles, meet these extraordinary educators and mingle with like-minded people.

Topics to be covered:

  • What sex educators do under the covers and how
  • Their best tips and tricks (and probably not the kind you read about in Cosmo)
  • Their favorite, black belt sexy-sexy time moves!
  • And much, much more…

Who this workshop is for: College students and organizations looking to empower and “edutain” their groups with practical, informative, and humorous sex and relationship advice in a friendly, non-threatening format.

Hands-On Energetic Sex

2.5-hr workshop, co-ed, couples/singles, all orientations.

Promotional Blurb: Perhaps you’ve heard of Tantra and remember reading somewhere (last month’s Cosmo?) something about “expanded orgasms,” but think that kind of stuff is only for people like Sting, yoga instructors or Jedi.

Maybe you or a lover has had ecstatic experiences in the bedroom involving post-orgasmic spasms that seem to have a mind of their own, but these spasms come and go infrequently enough that you can’t tell if they’re real or not.

Maybe you or your lover get these spasms all the time and you’ve since named them “the twitchys,” and when you told your friend the Kundalini yoga instructor about ‘em, they lit up and told you those spasms have a Sandskrit name called Kriyas (which you promptly forgot ’cause you don’t speak Sandskrit).

Whatever your level of experience with sex that seems to be “more than just sex,” join world renowned sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko for three hours of humorous and informative instruction, sex education, and live demonstrations on this esoteric (and yet more common than you think) realm of sex: Energetic Sex.

Who this event is for: For groups looking to expand their definition of what sex can be in a fun, informative way that is “explicit” while still being fully-clothed.

Reid demonstrates an energetic orgasm and what he calls "Tantric Twitchies" (Kriyas) for the audience with the generous help of Amber Seitz at a workshop in Oakland

The Ergonomics of Dynamic and Dynamite Sex workshop

2.5 hr workshop, co-ed, couples/singles, all orientations. Watch and ask questions.

Partial promotional blurb: Ever had an enthusiastic love making session that was dynamite, but left you feeling sore the next day? Perhaps you have an exuberant lover who leaves a smile on your face but your back in need of chiropractic care? How about that special someone who takes a long time to climax and always seems to be “almost there” right when your arm and wrists begin to fatigue…

It’s possible that your “problems” are due to what world-renowned sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko refers to as “poor sex posture.” Whether you’re like a golfer who suffers from bad form or like an overworked porn star with “hand-job elbow,” this workshop will improve your love life.

While we might laugh that “we should be so lucky,” at complaints of too much sex, and as much as it would be “cool” to tell our friends we threw a disc making love, who can really afford an injury in this day and age?

In today’s sit-at-a-desk-all-week, work-extra-hours-to-save-your-job workplace, we unconsciously bring our stress and bad postures home to the bedroom where they wreak havoc on us. We know that ergonomics in the workplace have positive impacts on performance, so why not apply it between the sheets?

Who this is for: This is an excellent workshop module for beginner, intermediate and advanced sex-positive groups, communities and gatherings, or sex educational trainings where the goal is to create a learning environment free of shame. This is also an excellent offering for any community leader or event organizer who is interested in hosting an exciting draw for an open-minded public, or who is looking to provide something new for their community, gathering, conference or expo.

The Ins and Outs of Hand Sex

2.5 hr workshop, co-ed, couples/singles, all orientations. Watch and ask questions.

Partial promotional blurb: Do you wish you had more tricks and know-how when it comes to using your hands on your lovers? Feel confident when it comes to your usual “hand-jive” routine but want to add a few new surprises in your bag of tricks? Perhaps you get good grades from your sex partners when it comes to love making but their genitalia and erogenous zones still mystify you?

In today’s “Insert Tab A into Slot B”-centric culture, Hand Sex is one of the most overlooked and untapped sources of pleasure. And unlike your standard “go-to” sex equipment, God gave most of us two hands with five digits each, which, when you do the math, equals way more than just doubling your pleasure!
Join world renowned sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko for an entertaining, low pressure and informative workshop on how to make love to men and women using your hands.

In this 2-hour workshop, complete with live demonstrations where all you have to do is watch and ask questions, Reid will cover:
  • How you can transform your hands into one of your best sexual assets!
  • Ways to utilize the millions of nerves in your fingers to “listen” to and track your partner’s sexual response so you can access better information and make him or her squeal
  • Several of Reid’s “best practices” for accessing and stimulating the erogenous zones for both sexes
  • Reid’s best kept secret of Hand Sex: how to use pressure and your own body weight to drive your partner crazy!
  • How to take the sexual equipment you were born with (and are probably most familiar with) and map out what you already know onto someone else’s plumbing so you don’t have to think!
  • Safer Sex hand hygiene so you can go mano y mano with confidence…
  • Ways to use verbal communication during love-making so that your partners can better relax and leave their pleasure, literally, “in your hands”

Who this is for: This is an excellent workshop module for beginner, intermediate and advanced sex-positive groups, communities and gatherings, or sex educational trainings where the goal is to create a learning environment free of shame. This is also an excellent offering for any community leader or event organizer who is interested in hosting an exciting draw for an open-minded public, or who is looking to provide something new for their community.

Iron Slut Sex Educator Showdown!

2hrs, Co-ed workshop for adults – all orientations, all relationship styles. Watch, ask questions, laugh and learn

Promotional blurb: What better way to learn about practical sex education that you can actually use than to watch two sex educators literally go head to head? Let’s face it, sex is one of the few things we’re not allowed to learn by watching others. You go to a fancy dinner. You don’t know which spoon to use. You watch to see what spoon everyone else uses… But don’t know what to do how in the bedroom, or want to add a few tricks to your repertoire? No such luck!

In this entertaining, informational, guaranteed-to-be-funny and friendly “competitive” throwdown between Reid and a local sex educator, we’ll let the audience watch, take notes, ask questions, and, when the dust finally settles, meet these extraordinary educators and mingle with like-minded people.

Topics to be covered:

  • What sex educators do under the covers and how
  • Their best tips and tricks (and probably not the kind you read about in Cosmo)
  • Their favorite, black belt sexy-sexy time moves!
  • And much, much more…

Who this workshop is for: Adults who enjoy quality “edutainment,” and organizations looking to empower and entertain their groups with practical, informative, and humorous sex and relationship advice in a friendly, non-threatening format.

Healing the Wounded Feminine: Advanced, 3-Day Workshop for Sacred Sexuality Practitioners

3-Day Intensive Training, Co-ed, men and women in the sexual healing feild

Partial promotional blurb: As sacred sexual practitioners, “healing the Wounded Feminine” is not just the grand calling of bringing the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine into full integration on Earth. It is also the intimate journey a healer accompanies their seekers on, a journey of releasing traumas,  nurturing the capacity to transform pain and receive pleasure, rediscovering one’s voice and sexual agency, and eventually awakening to one’s own divinity.

And this journey is not without its challenges for the initiate and pitfalls for the experienced practitioner.

As mid-wives of others’ transformation, we know all too well that most seekers will not know how delving into, stirring up, and beginning to confront their shadow sides will manifest. It is our responsibility as their teachers and guides, as best we can, to midwife our clients through their emotional and psychic upheavals with compassion and supportive grace. But even the best and most experienced among healers can experience unaccounted for difficulties and challenges.

Whether you are a daka or dakini who has leanred “the hard way,” someone who’s still struggling for better tools, or one of the “blessed” who’s career in healing the Wounded Feminine, so far, has had few upsets, this is 3-days that you will not want to miss!

Who this training intensive is for: For anyone already working or thinking about working in the sexual healing field looking to augment their skill sets. For anyone working with rape, incest and other abuse survivors.
