Men have it easy when they travel or do something outdoors, particularly when it comes to relieving themselves. As long as they’re out of sight behind a tree or something, they can quickly go to the bathroom. Women, on the other hand, don’t have it quite so easy. In fact, if there isn’t a toilet or bathroom around, things can get complicated real fast.
Look, travel isn’t always glamorous anyway, not to mention when you’re outside sweating or fighting off mosquitoes and the like. Couple that with unsanitary public restrooms, poor facilities at camping sites, and foliage for miles and, well, it’s a recipe for disaster.
The GoGirl Female Urination Device solves many of those problems. How? It’s designed to cover and support a female’s nether regions so that they too can pee standing up. More importantly, it’s a more hygienic and dare we say private way for women to relieve themselves while outdoors.
It’s made of medical grade silicone and comes with a carry container. It’s also reusable, which means after a quick wash with soap and water you can stick it right back in your purse or backpack. Furthermore, there’s a baggie and tissue included in the storage tube with the female urination device.
According to those who have used it, you do not need to squat or lean to relieve yourself. Instead, you can place the GoGirl where it needs to be and pee standing up just like a man would. The plastic repels liquid quite well too, so when you’re done, you can just shake it off and clean it with some tissue and hand sanitizer or soap, at least until you can get to hot, running water.
It’s an excellent solution if you’re traveling, hiking, climbing or even boating and you know you may not have time to make it to a bathroom or public facility. Plus, who doesn’t want to pee standing up? That’s a rhetorical question, by the way.
