You Go Girl!

Let's face it, when it comes to taking a whiz, guys have an advantage over the ladies.  If we are driving down the road and have to stop to pee, we can just stop some place, discretely whip it out and pee to our heart's content.  Women on the other hand, have always had to find a toilet to take care of those needs.

That is, until now.  Now women can pee standing up just like the fellas with the Go Girl urinary device. Yes, ladies, you no longer have to search for a bathroom, only to get there to discover it is disgustingly filthy. The Go Girl website advises women not to take life sitting down.  They say that the Go Girl device is perfect for active women, women who like the great outdoors, world travelers, and many others. 

I immediately thought of the 1970's and 1980's when I used to go to a lot of concerts at the old Capital Center.  It was built to be a sports arena, and had more mens rest rooms than ladies rooms.  Consequently, the lines at the ladies rooms were much longer than the mens rooms.  It was not unusual to have the women join our lines.  The Go Girl would have been perfect then.  Fortunately, Congress is working towards potty parity to make sure there are enough ladies rooms out there.

In all seriousness, I have some questions for the ladies out there.  Have you ever had the desire to pee standing up?  Is this something you could ever see yourself using?  The Go Girl website says you can keep it in your purse or pocket.  If you were to use the Go Girl, would you want to put it back in your purse or pocket?

  1. Waiting in long lines to use a bathroom facility can have serious physical and psychological effects on those women who suffer from Shy Bladder Syndrome (paruresis) - the inability to urinate in bathrooms when others are nearby.

    New national legislation needs to be introduced that will require at least a 2:1 ratio of women's facilities to men's.

  2. Thanks, Carol. Yes, I am aware of the potential problems women can encounter. My sister used to get a lot of urinary tract infections and the doc said it was because she would hold it too long.
