You GoGirl

Since potty training Lucy, Matt and I have had some *ahem* interesting conversations about women and using the bathroom. It went something like this...

"Ugh. When is this GIRL gonna learn how to not make such a mess when she pees?"
"Sweetheart. That's how women pee."
"It goes all over the place like that? She can't just pee like; in a stream?"

"Nope. That's called GIRL PARTS."

It has been aggravating to go from training a boy child to a girl child because you do actually have to go find a bathroom rather than advising them to find a tree and drop trou...

But then I just saw this:

I don't think I need to go into an anatomy lesson to teach you how it works. But it is designed so that women don't HAVE to sit to pee. They are pitching it as a device to make it more sanitary, like you don't have to sit on that NASTY toilet in the bathroom in the gas station in Skanksville USA. Just whip this baby out, stand up like a man and sweet, sweet relief is yours.

And I have to be honest. I thought about/am thinking about it. It is totally ridiculous. But that child has to pee about every six and half minutes. Plus, it might come in handy sometime. It is a COMPLETELY ridiculous product. But is it? I think I would use it. I hate dirty bathrooms. And I have some special peeing issues myself. Dangit, now I AM thinking about it. I mean, you can pee. Anywhere? Go check it out yourself:

GoGirl Their tagline is "Because life's greatest adventure shouldn't be finding a bathroom." Good advertising at least.

Ok, so I like the idea...BUT what in the world do you do with it after you use it? You have to still lug that thing around with you. Ewww.

Do it! And then put up a product reviewon your blog. Actually, the more I read on their site, I'm thinking this would have been really handy during my marathon training. When you're pulling an 18-miler on the backroads of West Texas...

Also, I totally dare you to buy the "GoGirl" baseball cap.

It actually does come with tissues that I guess you can clean it up with and then you put it back in the canister.

It says on the site that "urine is sterile." so I guess we shouldn't be grossed out? I have no idea. but I sure wouldn't want that thing rolling around in my purse!

Maybe a baggie until you can clean it?

You know that only counts for boys right? :)

Hilarious. Love it. Let me know how it works!

Hey ladies- My name is Cydney and I work for GoGirl.

Leslie- thanks for the Love!

As for the Questions:
-After you're done, rinse it out when you can, and then you have three options: 1)throw it away 2) rinse it out and store it in the biodegradable bag that is included in the packaging 3) rinse it out and fold it back up to fit back into the tube.

The GoGirl is made of medical-grade silicone, and can be used again and again, if you want. to.

Thanks for all the support ladies, the response has been overwhelming! xx

I can tell you that it does work too! I have one. My dad brought it up at a party about girls peeing standing up and I made it my mission to test one out because I hate dirty bathrooms. I actually did a review on my review blog for a Go Girl and it worked.

My friend naomi sent me the "she-wee" when I got pregnant. She's from England. Exact concept. I never actually used it...still have it though and use it as a conversation starter with girls. Hilarious.
