UD to Host Author of May I Kiss You?

The University of Dubuque will host author and speaker Mike Domitrz on Monday, October 11. The event is a part of the UD Wellness Program for students, faculty and staff. The event is funded by a NCAA grant designed to help campuses bring in speakers to educate students in handling difficult issues. The program will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church, beginning at 7:00 p.m., and is free and open to the public.

Mike Domitrz - a leading authority on consent, healthy dating, and sexual assault awareness - understands that students want to be entertained. They want a compelling and powerful program that each of them can relate to in a meaningful manner. For this reason, he takes each audience on a journey from hysterical laughter to hard-hitting questions followed with thought-provoking answers.

Domitrz has a gift of knowing how to relate with each person in the audience, males and females alike. He even encourages students to argue against his views and ideas. Throughout the event, he will reveal a new and fun approach towards respect that will change each student's outlook on dating and intimacy.

His most recent book, May I Kiss You?, offers an in-depth look at the realities of dating and intimacy. While most people simply - make their move - on a date, Domitrz reveals why "asking first" makes all the difference. Domitrz's candid advice, real-life scenarios, and innovative exercises will alter people's approach to dating while adding romance, building respect, and heightening their awareness of sexual misconduct and assault. From teenagers to mature adults, people of all ages are turning to this innovative, respectful, and fun approach to dating.
