She what? I what?

[This is not a paid advert]

Everyone (especially the females) knows how uncomfortable is it to pee in a public place. Let's not even go to the big business. It is very bad to hold our outputs because when we got to go, we have to go or it affects our body. We often have to do weird positions in order to keep 'clean'.

Tyra Banks, in the Tyra Banks show, once said that we often don't remember to keep our undies clean. We squat, yes. But we never check if our undies is touching the bowl. Seriously, how inconvenient for us just going to the toilet so boys, never say your life is any worse. Besides, we are creatures 'cause we bleed for a week every month and not die.

So today, I came across this on lamebookshepee. If you are lazy, here's some cutouts.

Shewee is a moulded plastic funnel that provides women with a simple, private and hygienic method of urinating without removing clothes whilst standing AND sitting.

When positioned securely under the crotch, and with underwear pushed to the side, Shewee directs urine away from the body to a suitable place, such as a toilet, a container or a conveniently located tree!
 No more crossed legs or uncomfortable squatting.

 Maintain your privacy and banish bare bottoms!

 Stand up at public toilets to avoid unhygienic seats and smelly portable loos.

 Hike/climb/ski/jog off the beaten track, miles from the nearest toilet.

 Travel the world with the comfort of home in your pocket.

Shewee is great too, even if you're less mobile.

Undo trousers. Push underwear to one side. Place Shewee securely against body with outlet pipe directed away from body.
Aim urine to a suitable place – away  from feet, into a toilet or a container.
When finished, pull funnel away, wipe- liquid repellent coating ensures no drips.
Place reusable Shewee back into resealable container.
Tip! Practise with Shewee in the shower to find the best position for you.
On leaving the body, urine is sterile.
We doubt you'll need them, but here are some very detailed tips!
Make sure the Shewee is held in the correct position by not pushing the Shewee tightly against the body. Shewee should be used by being held outside the body at all times. We know it is automatic to hold it tightly against the body - for fear of leakage, however, if you can hold the Shewee with almost 1mm between it and the labia majora, this will ensure your body does not 'fill' the Shewee – therefore leaving more room for the urine to pass freely.

Another tip is to stand in the shower or bath (urine is sterile) and make sure the back of the Shewee (pointy end) is held against the perineum but that the top front section of the funnel entrance is away from the body (labia majora) by about 1mm. You should be able to see the urine going into the funnel and then out of the outlet pipe. If you use it like this – so you can see the urine come out of your body and into the funnel- you will be able to experiment the best position for you. This will also help you notice that however hard/fast you urinate- it will not ‘fill up’! Also try holding the Shewee under a full flowing tap and experiment with the angle you need to hold it to make it work best for you.

Doesn't it sound amazing? We could stand up while pee-ing like the males! No more dirty public toilet seats to worry about. Too bad it is only available anywhere else but SG. I cannot say Asia because they have it in Taiwan. They should totally sell their products at places that needs this the most (eg.C and M). Watsons, Guardian, NTUC, Sheng Shiong, etc should have these in stock for women who seek a better pee-ing experience. Period.

Oh btw, have you heard about iPad?
