An estimated 75% of women have experienced painful sex. Painful intercourse, termed deep dyspareunia (dis-puh-ROO-nee-uh), is defined as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs during deep penetrative intercourse.
Painful sex can negatively impact a woman’s relationships, intimacy with her partner, and overall sexual self-confidence, as well as enjoyment of sex.
A new product designed by a deep dyspareunia patient seeks to relieve the pain from deep penetration.
The Ohnut Protector Ring is the first intimate wearable that allows the user to adjust the depth of penetration. Inspired by doughnut rings, the Ohnut features stackable, interlocking rings that can be removed to fit.
The revolutionary product is already receiving rave reviews from early adopters, many of whom have expressed that it has reduced pain and improved their relationships and intimacy.

How it works
Worn externally at the base of a penetrating partner, the Ohnut compresses down to act like a buffer and is customizable with four easy stacking and interlocking rings. The shock-absorbing, silicone rings have these added features:
- Comfort fit – designed with comfort ridges for both partners
- Durable – keeps condoms in place
- Versatile use – wear the whole time, or for foreplay or certain positions
- FDA-approved, body-safe material – phthalate, latex, and BPA free
- Compatible with both silicone and water-based lubricants
Who Can Benefit?
Anyone experiencing painful sex during deep penetration, whether all the time or in certain positions only, can appreciate the shock-absorbing and adjustable features of the Ohnut.
There are many causes for pain during sex that are often compounding, which may include conditions such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, fibroids, retroverted uterus, cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and ovarian cysts. Scarring from pelvic surgery, including hysterectomy, and medical treatments for cancer can cause changes that make sex painful. Even stress from a previous trauma can activate physical distress.
While it facilitates gentler intercourse, the Ohnut does not prevent or cure any conditions and is best used as a part of a multidisciplinary approach to sexual health, so consult with your doctor or pelvic floor physical therapist.
