How does a character help create change?
My Little Yoni brings women’s topics to the forefront of the conversation. Imagine having a MLY in your office, and having conversations around cycle awareness with your colleagues. Or having her in your living room as a source of honest conversations with friends about the importance of pleasure and play. Or imagine utilizing her as a tool to teach kids about anatomy and sex in a shame-free way. My Little Yoni helps us strip away taboos surrounding vaginas and replace them with a narrative that drives positivity, play and progress.
I’m a dude. How does that work?
At My Little Yoni we have male fans, advisors, supporters and investors. They understand that playful, progressive messaging about the vagina isn’t just for women - we must partner together to create a positive future. That’s why MLY’s initial content – which has been met by praise from everyone ranging from fortune 500 CEOs, celebrities, parents, educational psychologists, educators and more—features kids of all genders, discussing the role of My Little Yoni as a new super hero.
We believe that normalizing the vagina early in life in non-sexualized contexts helps all genders relate to each other in adolescence and beyond in a healthy, informed manner. My Little Yoni’s goal is to change the current narrative of disempowerment and shame to one of play, joy and self-love.
Along with our male allies, we have developed strong perspectives on why healthy partnerships between the sexes - which starts with positive education - must be part of the post #MeToo culture. These are issues that affect all of us and as such, it’s important that both women AND men talk about the solutions.

Do you integrate the use of the Sanskrit term "Yoni" and Hindu teachings into your programming?
We use Yoni primarily as the name for the character and use it to provide a distinction in thinking about the meaning of words — the fact that Yoni means ‘sacred gateway’ for example, and encompasses the entire reproductive system including outer genitalia and inner organs. It’s a real and unique word we feel is important to spread in the lexicon.
My Little Yoni— the character — teaches proper anatomical terms and follows sex ed guidelines. On top of that, leading OBGYN, sex educator and phd psychologists & researchers verify and approve all of MLY’s content.
At MLY we do have advisors, customers & donors of Indian descent who appreciate our use of Yoni & see it as appropriate and empowering. They understand that it’s an ancient Sanskrit word, which we always explain when teaching the origin of the word.
Something rare about the superhero we’ve created is that our demographic spans across race/ gender / economic and even some religious lines. We have black moms from the coasts, christian moms from the midwest, Asian moms from Singapore, Latina Moms, celeb moms, and more.
What is Yoni Magic?
Yoni Magic is both the title of our original book series and the super powers that a Yoni has. Often these powers aren’t known by humans with vulvas, and this leads to misconceptions and problems such as shame, negativity and embarrassment about the vulva. My Little Yoni wrote an all-new book series called, Yoni Magic covering all the important topics we need for healthy sexual development. The Yoni Magic book series was one of Kickstarter's staff picked "projects we love" and raised 200% over it's initial fundraising goals, showcasing the need for this doctor-approved book series. Go to our shop now to purchase the entire book now, and for every book series sold, one book is donated to a child in need.
