This post contains affiliate links

Ohnut is a body-safe wearable device invented by Emily Sauer, who experienced a decade of painful sex. Some of the technical terms for pain during sex are “dyspareunia” and “Genito Pelvic Pain Penetration Disorder” (GPPPD).

Ohnut is a beautifully simple solution that works by allowing you to easily customize how deep penetration goes. The device is placed externally at the base of your partner’s penis or on a toy. It compresses down to act as a cushion during sex. Ohnut comes with four linking rings so that you can adjust the depth of penetration for your comfort. A lubricant – water or silicon-based is considered essential to using Ohnut.

The device is stretchy and made with FDA-approved materials. It is BPA, phthalate, and latex-free.

Based on product reviews, women who are using the device were experiencing painful sex due to a range of conditions, like endometriosis, adenomyosis, post-birth changes, and vaginal wall changes due to radiation. Other reasons for painful sex include pelvic floor dysfunction, interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome, uterine fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, scar tissue/pelvic adhesions, ovarian cysts, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, gender affirmation surgery, gynecological cancers and treatment, tilted (retroverted) uterus, and stress/trauma.

Women shared that by using Ohnut, they were finally able to experience pain-free sex. Common themes included being able to let go and enjoy sex and that their partner’s pleasure was not in any way diminished but enhanced. The company claims that the majority of men who use Ohnut enjoy sex more because they are less worried that they are causing pain to their partner. Using Ohnut, women and partners feel freer to enjoy sex without pain and discomfort.

Ohnut is not a replacement for pelvic floor therapy or other treatments for painful sex. You should always consult a healthcare provider if you are experiencing painful sex. If your provider is dismissive of your symptoms and concerns, find another who will listen and offer treatment options.
