It’s fun having choices: decaf or regular, hair up or hair down, spider maki roll or spicy tuna roll… and now you can choose a device to pee. Whether you’re at a concert, in the woods, or just need to pee next to a parked car leaving a club one night, portable urinating devices allow you to keep some dignity when peeing au natural, and prevent your clothes from getting urine splash stains—it’s gross but true!
- Uriwell is a compact portable urinal that has a unisex adapter (thus, comfortable for both men and women). I don’t think this one is for me. It may be flexible and small, but I don’t think I can keep a personal toilet discrete in my everyday tote.
- The P-Mate works because it’s funnel shaped to fit any woman’s body. The P-Mate website gives excellent (easy) instructions on how to use the product. Unfortunately, the P-Mate isn’t reusable—which is why they are sold in packs of 4 or 8.
- The Shewee is a plastic funnel similar to the P-Mate, but is reusable. As the website points out, a reusable Shewee is still hygienic—apparently, urine is sterile after leaving the body. So all you have to do is give it a shake, place it in a plastic bag, and wait until nature calls. Plus, the Pink Shewee for Breast Cancer Awareness, the Shewee traveling case, and the Extension Tube (in case you’re on a boat or have layered clothes on) make me like the product even more.
