Myisha Battle is a certified sex coach and expert. Through sex coaching and her sex-positive podcast, Down for Whatever, she provides accurate sexual information, instills pride in difference, and encourages the quest for sexual satisfaction no matter a person’s race, gender, orientation, ability or age. She empowers her clients and listeners to embrace better sex for a better life.
Myisha has always been interested in talking about sex which is portrayed in her background. As a middle schooler she served as a peer counselor and often found herself mentoring classmates about their sex lives. In high school she volunteered at an HIV/AIDS clinic, and in college at San Francisco State majored in Health Education with a focus on sexual health. A study abroad stint in Amsterdam garnered her a Gender & Sexuality certificate and a whole new perspective on sex. After receiving her Masters from The New School in New York City she underwent sex coach training and is now a member of the World Associate of Sex Coaches.
The Fullest is honored to have Myisha as both a contributor and an influencer. We asked her to share with us the seven things making her life better at the moment. Here is what she had to say:
1 | My boo– My partner has been a huge source of support for me while I’ve been building my business this year. It’s an understatement to say that I couldn’t do it without him.
2 | Badass women– I am blessed to be surrounded by a community of badass women who not only keep me motivated and inspire me… they drink with me too!
3 | Good Citizens by Thich Nhat Hanh— This book examines how being mindful daily is key to being a good citizen in society. It has helped me prioritize mindfulness in all aspects of my life.
4 | Thrive Market— A lifesaver in my household for ordering bulk natural food items. We don’t own a car, so replenishing staples can be a real bummer! All of the products on Thrive are healthy and natural… and cheaper than going to the store! They also donate memberships to low-income families.
5 | Yoga– After reading an interview with Jessamyn Stanley, I decided to approach yoga differently than I have in the past. I use it as a means to center, come home to my body and wring out stress.
6 | My vibrator– When I’m stressed or when my partner isn’t down (or if I just want to keep O-ing), my vibe is my friend.
7 | Pregnancy Tea from Scarlet Sage— No, I’m not pregnant! Drinking this tea daily (which contains raspberry leaf and nettles), and taking magnesium during my period have been true lifesavers for relieving menstrual cramping.
