OHNUT

SAY GOODBYE TO PAINFUL SEX

Our Story

People are always hesitant to ask me why I created Ohnut. Because I needed it! I always assumed sex was supposed to be painful sometimes, so for years I worked around it and never spoke up… until finally the physical discomfort from sex made me feel like a failure—to myself and my partner. So when I came up with the crazy idea to put a pink frosted donut on a penis… everything changed.  I experienced not only physical relief but an emotional upheaval. I finally realized that it wasn’t my fault.

Hello Ohnut

Soft, stretchy, and oh-so-comfy, Ohnut is a simple and convenient way to adjust when penetration feels too deep (eep!). Made of 4 interlocking rings, you can customize the depth—without sacrificing sensation.

Explore adding and removing rings at any time with any position, so that both you and your partner can focus on what matters most—each other 🙂

Ohnut is an intimate wearable that can help you manage and potentially reduce pain during sex by allowing you to easily customize how deep penetration goes.

Worn externally at the base of a penetrating partner (e.g. on their shaft or on a toy), Ohnut compresses down to act as a soft buffer during sex. Each set comes with 4 linking rings that allow you to make simple adjustments, so you and your partner can not only discover comfort but also what depths feel really good—for both of you.

Ohnut is designed to feel just like skin. It’s so comfortable (like a gentle hug) you and your partner will barely notice it’s there. BPA, phthalate, and latex free your Ohnut is made from FDA approved body-safe material. ‍

 

Painful sex (or dyspareunia) can happen for a whole range of reasons, including:

  • Endometriosis
  • Adenomyosis
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammation
  • Pelvic floor muscle spasm (vaginismus)
  • Menopause (genitourinary syndrome of menopause, or gsm)
  • Cancer treatments (including chemotherapy and radiation therapy)
  • Chronic pain (vulvodynia)
  • Post-surgical vaginal swelling
  • Postpartum pain / sex post baby

IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT SIZE, BUT SOMETIMES IT IS.

Think about the condoms you and/or your partner normally use—that’ll help narrow down which Ohnut will be most comfortable!

Classic: “Standard” or “regular” condoms; Lifestyles Snugger Fit, Slim Fit, or similar

Wider: Trojan Magnum, Durex XXL, or similar

Worn externally by a penetrating partner at the base of the shaft (or object of choice), start by linking 3 stackable rings. Lube up. Slide Ohnut down. During penetration Ohnut will compress down to act like a buffer. Remove or add rings as you choose. Explore! Need to know more? Click here. 

Ohnut is currently made of an FDA approved body- and skin-safe polymer blend. It’s a thermo-set material that is BPA-, phthalate-, silicone-, and latex-free.

Note about material: The original Ohnut was designed in silicone, which therefore made it incompatible with silicone lubrication. Silicone lubricants are generally recommended by the pelvic health / medical community for their long lasting quality (having to reapply water-based lubrication during a connected moment can be very disruptive). However, silicone lubrication will degrade silicone products, therefore we decided to adjust Ohnut’s material to be easily integrated with medical recommendations. In regards to permeability, our manufacturing experts have informed us that, in general, most plastics are permeable, with the amount of permeability depending on what size molecule and under what pressure. Ohnut’s material is not permeable with the amount of pressure applied during a couple’s use. However, as a precautionary measure, we recommend that Ohnut is not shared between different partners. Our material is also not considered ‘hygroscopic’ (water absorbing).

While Ohnut can be used by penetrating partners of any gender, feedback from men includes not noticing the difference and feeling like full penetration, while also enjoying its additional use for foreplay. Some men may feel a slight “hug” sensation. The majority report that sex is more satisfying because they’re not as worried about causing their partner pain and their partner isn’t as worried about being in pain. This generally results in a feeling of confidence, of letting go with one another, of enjoyment. Don’t just take it from us, though — click here to hear what one male user had to say or check out our reviews!

Ohnut is made with a soft material that stretches to 8 inches (20.3cm) in width. When all 4 rings are stacked together, Ohnut’s uncompressed height is 2 ¾” (7cm). Externally, each ring individually is 2″ (5.08cm) wide and 1″ (2.54cm) tall unstretched. Internally, the smallest opening unstretched is 3/4″ (1.9cm).

Male preference and size of origin may vary widely. So! If Ohnut feels too tight, store the rings wrapped around a water bottle that is 3” in diameter (also serves as a great drink koozie) for at least a couple of hours. This will temporarily stretch out the rings. Let us know how this works for you.

If you feel discomfort at any time — speak up to your partner, take a break, and listen to your body. Ohnut is not a medical device and does not prevent or cure any conditions — so it’s a good idea to consult with your clinician. You may also consider visiting a pelvic floor physical therapist.

First of all, congratulations!! And yes, Ohnut can accompany pelvic floor physical therapy and/or dilator therapy for post-op gender reassignment surgery (M > F). Let us know if you have any other questions.

Yes! You’ll just need to put the condom on prior to putting on your Ohnut. Be sure to use additional lubrication before sliding Ohnut on.

Lubrication is essential to the Ohnut experience (do not attempt use without it!).  Since Ohnut is made from an FDA-approved family of polymers, it is compatible with both silicone based and water based lubrication. Oil based lubes are not recommended, including coconut oil, as they can degrade the material and cause your rings to tear. 

Coconut oil (or any oil-based lubricant) should not be used with Ohnut, as it can degrade the material and cause your rings to tear. We cannot replace damaged rings that have been used with oil-based lubricants. Water- and silicone-based lubricants are great, though!

Make sure to store your Ohnut linked together in its bag between uses. Hand wash your Ohnut with mild soap and water after use and allow to air dry. Save your dishwasher for the dishes.
