Day 1035 - Introducing the Female Urination Device

Don't take life sitting down!

Ok ladies - it's the moment you've all been waiting for - you no longer have to sit down to pee.  Isn't that exciting!

Just when you think there is nothing left to blog about you come across this little gem.  Apparently there is now a Female Urination Device (or FUD for those in the know) which allows a woman to stand up and pee.  You just stick the cup "underneath yourself" and a funnel sends your pee upwards and outwards much like the male penis.

Are you serious?! You go girl!

As a Deep Fried woman of the world I am always looking for tips and tricks to help make the transition into middle age that little bit easier.  Usually I focus on make-up, wrinkle reducing creams, handbags, hair dyes and youthful activities, but today my focus is on never having to squat behind a tree or hover above a smelly road-side toilet ever again!

Man I wish they had these things when I was at Uni. The amount of times I ditched the hour long wait at the ladies toilet at concerts and wandered into a men's cubicle instead.  I could have actually lined up at the trough with them!

Yes, it seems this little device comes in many forms. You've got the Go Girl, the She Wee and even the Travelmate.  Turns out it's not just for camping. It seems we should all be carrying one of these little reusable devices in our handbags (ewwww).

According to Shewee "When positioned securely under the crotch, and with underwear pushed to the side, Shewee directs urine away from the body to a suitable place, such as the toilet, a container or a conveniently located tree!"

According to Go Girl "Simply put, Go Girl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It's a female urination device that allows you to urinate while standing up. It's neat. It's discrete. It's hygienic."

When Ya Gotta Go (dot com) suggests it's great for female bikers, camping, hiking, boating, fishing, in the snow (can you write your name?), international travel, for female truckers and even for medical reasons (interestitial cystitis).

Makes you wonder why we haven't all got FUDs in our handbags right next to our lipstick, sunglasses, panty liners and bandaids!

You see. You really can learn something new every day.

Happy Sunday!    


  1. I saw the Go Girl back when I was on the road a lot with bands. And I totally would've been all over it (nothing says creepy like a gas station bathroom) except, um, really, carrying it around? Sounded just as gross.

  2. I know, it's the shaking it off and putting it back in the handbag that gives it the "ick" factor ...


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
