GoGirl — Love It or Leave It?

I envy guys for being able to pee anywhere — especially when I'm camping or attending an outdoor festival or something. But what stops me is the whole drip-drying issue, not the lack of a special tool, which is why I find the GoGirl feminine urination device ($7) a tad puzzling. This silicone funnel comes in a cute tube and creates a watertight seal so you can "go anywhere" with no mess or fuss. The tagline: "don't take life sitting down." Do you think this is empowering or just plain silly?

ummm no! I'm not a wilderness kind of girl anyway. My idea of camping is a nice camper with a bathroom! ;)

i don't know about you guys, but i can't pee in a straight line. it gets all over my thighs and runs down my legs. it all depends on person's anatomy.

it seems not very hygiene friendly. you'd have to either clean it and store it (gross) or buy a new one every time. I'd rather squat outside.

Oh I forgot to mention about how it would be more convenient to use this funnel than have to take half of my gear off so I could squat to pee.

I wish I had this when I was in Iraq, even in clean portapotties the seats would heat up so badly you couldn't even touch it. I don't want to mention the dirty portapotties. This is a great idea, I would probably throw it away after using it though, unless I knew I would need it again in the near future.

I agree, it's not like our pee shoots all over the place- we can pee in a straight shot. Is this designed by a man?? I can't shake dry like a dude can do--- hah ha funny visual with my brain trying to picture that right now though!

Peeing standing up isn't so hard. I'd rather do that in the nasty pub loo than break out a funnel.

I don't think this makes any sense. No one would use it in plain sight of other people, and no one would empty it in public, either. So if you're in a place where no one can see you and where pee can be spilled, why not just squat?

It seems like a really convenient product but I feel a little offended by the tag line. I feel like it implies my anatomy (which as a woman means I have to squat) is some how inadequate and something I shouldn't "take sitting down".

I think this is pretty neat. I peed in a shrub outside for the first time about two weeks ago. My boyfriend spotted me in case there was a raccoon or something. If I had this thing it would have been no problem!

I would keep one in my car for absolute emergencies- like if I were trapped in traffic gridlock on a bridge or something and DYING to pee. I'd much rather pee in a weird cup thingy (though I'd prob. throw it away after) than 1) give myself a UTI from holding it too long 2) peeing my pants 3) spraying everywhere trying to pee in a water bottle. Sorry to be graphic, and I know it's kind of awkward, but in case of an emergency, I wouldn't be too weirded out to use it.

I don't think it's a bad idea at all... It would have come really in handy in so many situations where i thought i was going to burst, and i HATE squatting. It's small and flexible, and i guess i just dont find urine to be the end all of disgusting. I don't want it on me, but i'm not going to wither up and die if i have to rinse it out of something. Another thing is... why would you HAVE to drip dry? I've never in my life drip dried, no matter how I peed. If you have enough room to carry this little tube, you have enough room to carry something to wipe with. We aren't talking poop here, we are talking a little urine. sheesh.

You know, initially I was kind of put off by the idea, but then I thought of an experience I had where it would have been very, very handy. I recently ran a half-marathon, and for those who do not run races, stomach troubles seem to run rampant the mornings of races. So I stood in the huge line for the port-a-potty pre-race and finally got through the line after 20 minutes, and when I went in to the stall someone had literally pooped on the seat. It was awful. I didn't have time to get back in line pre-race, so I squatted over the seat and had to pray that I didn't fall. It was awful. I may get one of these for future races.

It's not a bad idea. I just don't have many times in life where I would really need it. There have been some in the past though. I'm just not sure that I would remember to have it with me all the time.
