For over a decade I assumed that I was unrelatable in my experience of painful sex, and yet the moment that Ohnut became a vehicle for conversation, I couldn't believe how alone I wasn't.
Ohnut Founder & CEO
Inventor by Necessity
People are always hesitant to ask me why I created Ohnut. Because I needed it! For me, doctors dismissed my concerns for over 10 years… 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.
Sex is one of the greatest ways we connect as humans
Sometimes it’s life-affirming, sometimes it’s a lazy Sunday “I love you,” sometimes sex is a hilarious foray into the weird sounds our bodies can make.
But also... sex can make or break our self esteem if something isn’t easy, doesn’t feel good, or goes wrong. And many of us grow up learning that pain during sex is normal, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
