A few months ago, I was out on the road with my then-beau and we both had to take a leak. Of course, since he’s a dude, he was able to pull over, whip it and wizz it, while I was stuck in the car mad because I wasn’t in the mood for pissy-pants (yes, I’m a horrible squatter, plus I had no wipes). Therefore, I decided to just hold it until we got to a location where I could pee in comfort. At that very moment, a bulb went off and I told my boo-boo-stank-stank that I wanted to invent some type of urination tube that would enable women to tinkle like men when we were out on the road.
After laughing hysterically at how angry I was that I couldn’t just turn to a wall or stand behind a tree to drain my tank, he told me he thought it was a good idea. Okay, I may be onto something here, I thought. Fast forward a few months later, and I’m IG-surfing only to come across a flick of an object that looked strikingly similar to the invention that I’d concocted in my head. Pause. Somebody done stole my damn idea! Just to be sure, I did some digging. A SheWee, that was the name of the thing. I was pissed! (Granted, this product has been on the market for over a decade, but still…I’m mad as hell.)
And come to find out, this SheWee thingy isn’t the only female urination device (FUD) ready for sale: GoGirl, Whiz Freedom, PStyle, Urinelle…yeah, so much for my bright idea. (Shrugs.) Despite my anger that some genius(es) beat me to the punch, I still think these magical little faux wieners are brilliant ideas and perfect for us gals when we’re out-and-about and need to take a quick leak without the fear of pissing in our shoes or wetting up our underpants.
So, how do these things work? Well, you just attach the cupped-end to your va-jay-jay, aim the tub at your chosen destination, and let her rip!
Cool, right? But the real question is: Would you use it? Leave your comments and take the poll below.
And just in case you need a visual, here’s a look at a few chicks from BuzzFeed trying out the SheWee for the first time.
