We are proud to announce our partnership with The Woodshed Orlando, Orlando’s Premier Playspace for many of our educational needs.

Whitni Miller is a sex educator and pleasure coach specializing in queer sex and relational communication. She uses Instagram and TikTok to disseminate pleasure centered, sex education to the general population. Additionally, she offers coaching 1:1 or couples to help reach their pleasure goals.

To Whitni, pleasure is not one size fits all. She sees pleasure as a subjective experience that can only be defined by the individual. Her main goal in working with clients is to help them find their way home to themselves. Because truth is something that can only be defined within.

Whitni is trauma-informed, kink-informed, and utilizes her yoga philosophy background to facilitate healing that empowers the client to own their pleasure.

“Why are you so determined to keep your wild silently inside you? Let it breathe. Give it a voice. Let it roll out of you on the wide open waves. Set it free.”
