Lodi High School teams up with Hope House to bring  nationally-renown healthy dating expert and author on May 12.

Before you kiss, do you ask? Will it ruin the moment? Will you feel like an idiot? Most people do not ask their partner before engaging in intimacy. Yet, the far majority of individuals love being asked! Why? Nationally-renown expert and author, Mike Domitrz, explains that “Asking takes away all the pressures and eliminates potential confusion. Plus, when you learn how easy it is, you discover how sexy and romantic asking can be.” Domitrz will be speaking at Lodi High School on Tuesday, May 12 from 10:15-11:15am.

Asking isn’t just about having more fun. “The greatest reward of asking is that you are giving your partner the opportunity to say whether he or she wants to do what you want. You are giving your partner complete respect. Asking protects both of you from being involved in an uncomfortable situation or even a sexual assault,’ says Domitrz.

Known for his interactive, humorous, and hard-hitting approach with audiences, Domitrz inspires by providing simple solutions. Domitrz’s critically-acclaimed book, May I Kiss You? A Candid Look at Dating, Communication, Respect, & Sexual Assault Awareness is being used as a model by people of all ages around the world. Inspired by his sister after she survived being sexually assaulted, Domitrz has traveled the country for over a decade sharing with people of all lifestyles and backgrounds. He has spoke with professional athletes and is often utilized as a media expert for TV and radio shows.

Through a community education grant, Hope House of South Central Wisconsin was able to co-sponsor Domitrz’s appearances at 3 Columbia County High Schools: Lodi, Wisconsin Dells, and Portage.  To learn more about Mike Domitrz’s upcoming presentation of his ““Can I Kiss You?” assembly and Train the Trainers student leadership program, call Jess Ritschke at Hope House, 608-356-9123.
