Kiwi - Ending painful sex

An exploration of pelvic health.

Kiwi - Ending painful sex — © The Pelvic People - 2023

Pain during sex is far too common. The Pelvic People and designer Nienke Helder take a science-backed deep dive into entry pain. They showcase their unique research and design process, resulting in Kiwi: an innovative solution that makes progress feel good. Like, really good.


Learn the ins-and-outs of entry pain (no pun intended)—from its root causes, to current treatment limitations, to how it affects those who experience it (and the people who love them).


Discover the expert perspectives that shaped Kiwi’s development, the science behind its design, and the challenges we faced along the way. Take a journey back in time to the early sketches, 3-D models, and questions about missing research.

Get inspired

Our hard work culminated in an innovative product that we are excited to unveil. Clinician-recommended, science-backed and designed with dignity, Kiwi was made to relieve entry pain in a way that feels good. Come see for yourself the future of pelvic health. We are just getting started.
