Urine Your Way

Seeing this article (via Feministing) on a new female urinal propelled me to do some research (I googled “female urinal”), and discover that there are a ridiculous number of systems available for the standing inclined.

Unfortunately most are creepy and little better than jugs or bedpans.  It reminds me once again of sorry state of female-oriented design, though in this case it’s not that the product isn’t woman-friendly — it’s pretty un-fun for a girl or a boy.

A+ The Feminal Female Urinal! This one at right is my favorite though, The A+ Feminal Female Urinal.  First, one can’t help but groan at “Feminal,” so kudos for that.  Then there’s the accompaning text:

It allows a woman to urinate in any position: reclined, seated or standing. Replaces bedpans for those with limited mobility.

Now I realize by “reclined peeing” they mean people who are bedridden, but my immediate notion is of women setting up cots in their bathroom so they can finally pee while horizontal.  Now they can live the dream…

Thank you A+.  Thank you.

    Ever been stuck in a vehicle for a reeeeeally long time? Well, I have and I would have given my right arm for on of those things. Guys have it so easy, they can just jump in the back and grab a gatorade bottle; Meanwhile we’re one vagal maneuver away from being forever know as Betsy Wetsy!

    one more thing…there is this device called P-Style which allows a woman to pee anywhere she wants with her pants up. It sounded weird to me at first, but I do a lot of camping, hiking and fishing on boats in the middle of nowhere and it’s really convienent. I mean it seems awkward to pee like a guy, but you have to admit at some point in our lives we have all had the same envy of guys having it easier when nature calls. If you have to pee outside squating is just as awkward… especially when your butt is exposed to the elements (i.e. frostbite, snakes ect…).

  • I’m all for products that ease peeing, but I think the diversity of strange solutions to this need show that the optimal design has yet to be achieved. They’re all just so…weird.

    These devices are great when you are camping in really cold weather and you don’t want to go squat in the woods or walk to the distant restroom. Roll out of your sleeping bags, use your urinal and roll back in. A must have for female campers.

  • The conventional system is more practical and comfortable.
