Okay not to ask whether this is Paleo (LOL :). Can anyone attest to the practicality and precision of this product??!! Marketing hype or really useful?

http://www.shewee.ca/ Shewee - the revolutionary device that is changing women???s lives.

No more crossed legs or uncomfortable squatting. Maintain your privacy and banish bare bottoms! Stand up at public toilets to avoid unhygienic seats and smelly port-a-cabins. Hike/climb/ski/jog off the beaten track, miles from the nearest toilet. Travel the world with the comfort of home in your pocket. Stand to pee - the ultimate in personal hygiene.

This question is for girls - and they can drop their pants and begin whizzing anywhere they want to!

So you're surrounded by people and you just drop your pants a bit and begin whizzing? I don't know what special privileged you girls think we guys get....but doing this is a good way for one of "us" to get thrown in jail...

Agreed. Menstrual cups seem to be the biggest DUH to me, simple obvious cheap, and yet they're totally taboo. Heaven forbid a woman stand to pee!

Nemesis, have you seen the "picnic pants" on Etsy? Might look a little weird with REI hiking gear, but I think they are pure genius. If you wear a skirt and these pantaloons with an open crotch you can pee anywhere without having to show off your business. http://www.etsy.com/listing/81534965/picnic-panties-bloomers-peek-a-bloomers

It isn't that hard to do once you figure out the correct angle to lean. This is another one to practice in the shower before taking it out for a field test.

I like the pun, ha. I think they might be main stream if it was easier to talk about without people thinking you are weird. Pee sticks, menstrual cups, and eating raw meat...all things I wish I could openly talk about with people without them thinking I am a nutbag.

I agree, squatting is the ideal position for pooping, peeing and having a baby, but can't always be done when you're at a festival or event surrounded by people. With these pee funnels, you can unzip your pants, put this thing in and do your business, all without having to reveal your butt and vagoo.

Ditto Anna's comment. My friend had a kidney condition such that she could not go but very short outings without needing to use a public restroom. Saved many accidents and potential health hazzards for her with nasty toilets.

No personal experience but a friend has tried it. It caused giggles amongst her friends but it does work.

yes i have seen them years ago, if it were a good idea it would be main stream, pardon the pun.

Yup, I bought a 3 pack from a different company a while back (GoGirl!). Haven't been able to get the hang of it without piss dribbling out the back, lol. I recommend practicing while you're in the shower!

We used them in Iraq when we were on long (12+ hr) convoys and couldn't stop. (Men had the "luxury" of peeing directly into Gatorade bottles...) I agree on the practicing while you're in the shower comment. It takes some getting used to because if you REALLY have to go, it might get messy because the "cup" part may fill up before the tube is able to empty it out.

What is wrong with squatting down? Peeing standing up must be 1. uncomfortable 2. you have to aim well or 3. you have to clean up all the time

Instead of some shewee they need to introduce heated toilet seats, like in Japan. Nice, warm and comfortable!

My sister was trained how to pee standing up as part of her survival and evasion training in the Air Force. They didn't use any devices and she claims it isn't that difficult to do.

I feel like I could have really used this during my drinking days in college. No more squatting behind dumpsters in the alleys!!!

There are many FUDs(female urination devices) out there. GoGirl, p-mate, freshette, urinelle, and others. I personally own a GoGirl and the p-mate and love them. It is easy to stand and pee with them anywhere. It is alot easier to use it if you have a long zipper and wearing boxers, so then you can insert the device through the fly and just pee. Its easy and comfortable, once you start to stand and pee you wont want to sit again.

I use the Pstyle and love it. When tailgating and having to walk into a terrible Porta-Potty I can just pee in the urinal provided for the guys.

The only time I worry about using it is out hiking because I do not want unknowing people seeing this girl and thinking I have...male parts...but who cares I do not really know them anyway and usually can find a very private place. If I was still in High School and College (party age) and attended field parties I would be squatting instead of trying to explain. I would not want that confusion during those years. I am way past field party age now though.

It comes in handy when going into public restrooms and has been useful when needing to "go" on a long trip with no close restroom available. I have even used it to privately pee in a bottle while hubby continues to drive on those long trips where we are hitting the coffee to make good time. Pack some good Paleo foods and one can leave Dallas at 7AM Saturday and be in San Francisco 5:00 PM Sunday, stopping to sleep a bit too.
