Go Girl
I know all or at least most of you read MckMama's blog. While I was reading last night I saw this in one of her posts. Anyone know what it is?? Go Girl is a female urination device. Can you believe it? Are you shocked too? Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to pee while standing up. It’s neat. It’s discreet. It’s hygienic.

I must admit the color is awesome, but I don't know how much I would enjoy standing up while I pee. Sitting on nasty public toilets isn't one of my most favorite things to do either, so maybe I should try this.

MckMama said that she has actually used a Subway cup in the past during an emergency. I remember one night a friend of mine cut the top off of a bottle of water and used it. It wasn't the most ladylike pose I had ever seen, but she had to go. When you have to go, you have to go.

The website says:
If you camp, you’ll love GoGirl. If you ski, you’ll love GoGirl. If you boat, you’ll love GoGirl. If you travel, you’ll love GoGirl. If you just want to avoid the germs you find in nasty public toilets, you’ll love GoGirl. GoGirl is for active women of all types and ages.

Oh and just in case you want to know how to use it:
Ready, set, go!
Just adjust your clothing, and hold GoGirl gently against your body to form a seal. Aim and urinate. GoGirl’s a snap to use. But we suggest you practice at home a time or two at home, so you’re confident and ready to go, wherever the urge strikes. If there’s leakage, you’re not sealing it against you. Try again. The second time’s a charm.
GoGirl’s economical enough to be considered disposable, but some women choose to use the product again and again. Use the enclosed baggie to dispose of the product after use. Or use it to store GoGirl until you can clean it.
Urine is sterile, and GoGirl’s medical grade silicone is germ resistant, but the product can come into contact with bacteria during use, so take care in cleaning. It’s sturdy enough to stand up to multiple washings. (One enthusiast gleefully reported that GoGirl stood up to her dishwasher.)
You’re ready to go again!

Ummmm I won't be putting mine in the dishwasher, but I will be ordering one.
Yes, thats right I am going to try it out and then report back to you.
If you try one in the meantime let me know!!!!

I have seen this before. Looks interesting and makes sense. I've seen friends too in awkward positions because they had to go and we were nowhere near a bathroom!
