Has anyone seen this? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br><a href="http://www.go-girl.com/eshop/10Expand.asp?ProductCode=01" target="_blank">http://www.go-girl.com/eshop/10Expan...ProductCode=01</a><br><br>
Has anyone used it????<br><br>
I will be spending considerable amounts of time overseas for the next few years (particularly in areas where it may be difficult to find clean bathrooms), and I'm wondering if this works... it seems like it could definitely be a life-saver...<br><br>
So, anyone????

I would totally pee all over my leg lol<br><br>
I do know some ladies that go camping a lot and swear by using a ripped up cup to help them pee in the woods standing up.

Never tired that product.<br><br>
Here is a blog that explains how females can pee standing up without extra equipment.<br><br><a href="http://kbannerman2.blogspot.com/2009/07/how-to-pee-standing-up-guide-for.html" target="_blank">http://kbannerman2.blogspot.com/2009...guide-for.html</a><br><br>
Talking about pee made me have to go and since I currently have the house to myself (no kids walking in on me), I decided to give it a try. I didn't do too bad for a first try.

I haven't tried that particular model, although there are a bunch of them out there - the one I have is the Travelmate. I found that my body just does not want me to pee standing up, particularly with clothes on... the training that tells me not to is deep seated and very hard to overcome. Well, that and I'm pee shy and usually trying to use it in a situation where I am somewhat visible. It might be better inside an actual bathroom, I'm not sure.<br><br>
But then I'm not personally bothered by dirty bathrooms... I'm going to pee there, not serve dinner.

The problem, as someone noted in a comment on the above blog post you linked to, is the difference in male & female "equipment." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> The men can just unzip, whip "it" out of their unzipped fly, and pee. Women have to either be undressed or be commando under a skirt.

Agreed. However, if my problem is lack of a bathroom not lack of privacy I could make it work. For example hiking or camping.

Whatever happened to good old-fashioned squatting? I work outdoors and do this all the time. As long as you can back up to something like a tree or car tire and only pull your pants down to mid-thigh, the most anyone would see is the side silhouette of your rear.

What is appealing to me about the idea of this is that it could potentially be used in urban areas where there may be bathrooms that are private, but so filthy (and without Toilet paper, sinks, or soap) that even squatting over them could be difficult... or in places where it's difficult for a short girl to squat over a gross toilet without touching it... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Bolt.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bolt">

Ahh, gotcha. I think I'd still choose the great outdoors (even the urban outdoors) over a questionable toilet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Why would I even want to pee standing up? And how would I hold that between my legs and pee and be comforable. I'd rather squat, I'm not a man nor do I feel the need to pee like one.

Having gone on hikes where decent peeing behind trees were at a premium but ones where dh could easily stand by to pee were all over the place, that's why it would've been nice to have an option to not have to drop my pants all the way.<br><br>
Then, too, I have to drop my pants down really far to feel comfortable peeing in a squat.

You know the snot-sucker bulb thingies? The kids broke one in the tub the other day... I was left with a small, flexible funnel that looks like a smallish GoGirl... So I said, hmmmmm.... and tried it, and it worked perfectly! I only had to unzip my fly, the opening fit perfectly on the lady bits, no drips, and I could aim-- all on the first try!<br><br>
I thought about posting, but I couldn't figure out where to put it (frugality? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">) so I decided to wait for a thread to pop up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">

Ahh! there is it! I used to do this when I worked outside in the desert amongst construction workers. It ain't perfect, and you gotta be good at it, (and have to have a decent volume of pee), but it can be done - minimal booty baring, too. Practice in the shower. Heh.
