Why Yoni Magic?
My Little Yoni was founded by Ariel Saint White, with help from leading OBGYN Debra Wickman, with the goal of eliminating shame surrounding the vulva. After talking to hundreds of parents and seeing how much they struggle with tackling conversations with their kids related to anatomy and sex, we expanded our mission to include comprehensive sex ed for families nationwide. That's how My Little Yoni became the first superhero who makes difficult conversations easier and fun, all while busting shame and celebrating the life giving magic of Yonis.
It’s no secret that sex ed in America is broken, and has long been the basis of an ideological tug-of-war. Fewer students receive comprehensive sex education in the US now than at any time in the past 20 years. With only 17 states requiring that information to be accurate, much is left up to interpretation and information gleaned from anything found on the internet — including porn.
Sex ed in America particularly fails women, whose bodies and sexuality are typically surrounded by shame and confusion. What if sex and female anatomy were normalized in childhood, girls grew up with an understanding of the changes in their bodies, boys recognized that the female body was to be respected, and consent was embedded within the fiber of our society?
By providing accessible, doctor-approved sex education and tools to moms and kids, My Little Yoni aims to create systemic change at the root level, providing parents and children with comprehensive sex ed that empowers better choices and shame-free development. My Little Yoni has completed writing a 10-book series covering all the topics kids usually don’t learn about until it’s too late including: accurate anatomy, consent, periods, how babies are made, LGBTQ+, and more.
My Little Yoni shares free education to our online community of 10,000 and is beloved by sex educators, OBGYNs, psychologists and parents alike! We want to expand this impact by bringing this important 10 book series to the world adding to our suite of empowering products, which already include handmade art dolls and collectible charms. The Yoni Magic book series will help empower families across the country, and for every series purchased, one book is donated to a family in need.

Benefits of Early Sex ED
There are many benefits to teaching kids comprehensive sex ed, here are just a few:
- Kids grow up more informed and body positive - By teaching proper anatomy and how their body works, you are showing them there’s NOTHING to be ashamed of and helping them understand themselves better.
- Better Parent/Child communication - because you start having these conversations by reading these books, kids are more likely to go to you for their questions in the future! It’s not a one time conversation but an ongoing series of conversations over time.
- Kids start learning to recognize boundaries - Your child is more likely to understand appropriate and inappropriate behavior. They are more likely to speak up when they need to and to respect other people’s boundaries.
-Healthy Gender Identity- because gender is widely discussed in s*x education, you allow them time to understand their gender, learn, and grow up feeling comfortable in who they are!
- Kids grow up to make smarter & safer decisions - they are more likely to make smarter sexual decisions later on in life & will likely be older than average when engaging sexually for the first time.
