Both of us had been working crazy hours.

Farah in investment banking, Sarah as a gynaecology doctor.

We’d taken the day off to catch up and have a break from the relentless slog.

Over lunch, Farah was telling Sarah a story about a friend who had gone to buy some condoms in her lunch break and had turned round to see her boss stood behind her, smirking and clutching his meal deal.

It got us talking about how wrong everything with condoms was.

Garish packaging. Lairy marketing. Confusingly having them next to the pregnancy tests. Or embarrassingly, having them behind the counter. How men carrying condoms made them studs. And how women carrying condoms made them promiscuous.

Nothing discrete, stylish or particularly sexy.

And certainly, nothing aimed at women. We wanted transparency and realism about sex.

As a doctor with experience in gynaecology and sexual health, Sarah couldn’t get over how absurd it was that in this day and age, buying and carrying condoms is still a taboo. In the fast-paced world we live in, now more than ever our wellbeing matters, and that includes sexual wellness.

And that’s where we got the idea for HANX. Condoms that are stylish and safe. That people are proud to carry and have in their homes.

Sold in the places you usually shop as well as a subscription service that delivers to your door. Safe sex made simple and chic.

HANX is here to help you have a happy, healthy sex life.
