We are proud to be the UK stockists of Ohnut. You will find lots of information and some videos on our product pages but here are a few more FAQs.
How does Ohnut work?
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!
How do I care for my Ohnut?
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.
What is Ohnut made of?
Ohnut is currently made of an FDA approved body- and skin-safe polymer blend. It’s a thermo-set material that is BPA, phthalate, 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 Ohnut decided to their material to be easily integrated with any preferred lubrication. 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. With Ohnut’s material, it 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).
Can I use Ohnut with a condom?
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.
How does it feel physically for a male partner?
While Ohnut can be used by penetrating partners of any gender, feed back from men includes not noticing the difference and feeling like full penetration, while also enjoying it’s 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.
Will Ohnut fix the pain I have during penetrative sex?
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 Health Physiotherapist.
I have just had Genital Reconstruction Surgery can Ohnut Help make sex more comfortable?
First of all, congratulations!! And yes, Ohnut can accompany pelvic floor physical therapy and/or dilator therapy for post-op GRS surgery. Let us know if you have any other questions.
Can I use lubricant with my Ohnut?
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 oil based and water based lubrication. We always recommend Desert Harvest or YES lubricants due to their unique quality and formulation.
