The Strangest Thing I've Seen Today Is GoGirl

Product Features

  • Allows women the convenience of going to the bathroom standing up
  • Reusable can be washed with soap and water
  • Includes a reusable storage tube with a baggie and tissue
  • Made from medical grade silicone that conforms to your body
  • Pink tube with lavender GoGirl
Browsing around Amazon today looking for medical supplies for my work, I came across this actual item for sale and it's specifications. I'm intrigued...are people really going to buy this? And would it really work? I'm imagining the logistics of an actual visit to the ladies room out on a shopping trip. Do you take it to the sink and wash it up right in front of others? Do you really wash it in the sink? Or do you tuck it in its baggie and take it home with you? What if you need to use it again before you've gotten home to wash it?

I read the reviews, which there were 6, and they all gave 5 stars. Turns out, most of them are using it as a camping aid. Whodathunkit? Evidently some woman who hates it that men have it so easy in the woods!

If you happen to decide to use it in a public restroom, then it all comes down to...are you a sitter, or a squatter? You don't of course need to tell me, I'm just saying...

6 backward glances:

ha ha... I saw this on the TV a few months ago. The show was about ads in Europe that we don't often see in the US and one of them was for this product! Apparently it is rather popular in Europe where there are several stand up areas for me to pee - in public - but nothing for women. CRAZY HUH? I can't believe you found it at Amazon!

maybe that would be good for my food storage- you know. So funny

I am so buying it for camping....then I don't have to go to the porta potties...I can pee like a man....ANYWHERE!!!!

Amy said...

it does sort of sound kind of cool, doesn't it? the minute i think of camping, i think of porta potties and peeing over a log - all highly distasteful. it's less than $10; can you go wrong? hmmmm.

I tried using a bit of a/c hose once when camping for this very thing. It was messy to say the least.

Maybe it would make peeing in a sample bottle eaiser? I don't know what size sample bottles you get in the States, but in the UK the neck of the bottle is about 1.5" wide - not easy to aim for when 9 months PG!
