‘Can I Kiss You?’: Critically acclaimed program coming to Joint Base San Antonio

By Larry Coffey Navy Medicine Education andTraining Command Public Affairs

The San Antonio-area Navy Sexual Assault Prevention team is hosting a lively and unique program April 1 called "Can I Kiss You" as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month activities.

The program features critically acclaimed speaker, author and executive director of "The Date Safe Project Inc." ( Mike Domitrz, described as an interactive and entertaining expert on dating and intimacy.

Two presentations are being offered at here and one at JBSA-Lackland. The 8 a.m. session is open to Navy Master At Arms students only and is being held at JBSA-Lackland's
Carter Hall at the Security Forces Academy, 1325 Harmon Drive.

The 1:30 p.m. session at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston is open to all branches of the military and is being held at the Student Activity Center located across from Medical Instruction Facility 3 and 4, next to the Navy student barracks. The 6:30 p.m. session is for Navy Hospital Corps students only and is being held at the MIF 4, Anderson Hall Auditorium.

Navy San Antonio and Houston-area Sexual Assault Response coordinator Seletha Willis said the Navy is limited to offering one presentation to all service members due to space.

"Mike Domitrz is a very dynamic and entertaining speaker and will be presenting this program to all 15 Navy bases in the southeast Navy region, including Guantanamo Bay, Cuba," Willis said. "The Navy was only able to bring him in for one day. The program is required for Navy students in the area, so due to the time and space constraints, the only option is to open one showing for all branches of the military."

During his presentation, Domitrz teaches audience members how to ask for what they want sexually or intimately - without having to play any of the games.

"Before you kiss, do you ask?" Domitrz said. "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? 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 reveals a fun and revolutionary approach to ensuring each person's boundaries are respected, according to information provided by The Date Safe Project.

"While he presents one of the cleanest shows, Mike holds nothing back. Males and females from all cultures, backgrounds, sexual orientations and diverse populations appreciate his sincerity and honesty."
