Women Peeing At Music Festivals

February 11th, 2014 | Stacy Kwan

One of the worst places for a woman to need to pee is at a large concert or music festival. Beer is flowing, the music is pounding, people are everywhere and lines to the bathrooms or portable toilets are a mile long. So what’s a girl supposed to do when her beer has reached the point of no return and needs to exit the body as soon as possible? There are basically three options – wait in line for a soaked, stinky facility, hold it or find a place to squat. All three options pretty much suck.

As much as I hate to admit it, events like this are where those creepy cardboard funnels make sense. No skill or thought involved, just pay the money, shove it under there and let her rip, vagina paper cuts be damned.  Never mind that the collective souls using these out of desperation have left a mound of cardboard to be sent off to landfill, killing countless trees.

This is where women need to stop being so damn tragic and start being pro-active, maybe with the help of concert promoters and telling women there is an alternative to having to get into a humiliating position. Many concerts in Western Europe bring in portable urinals for men – walk up, unzip and go. Women have no simple alternative, unless they are Stand2Pee graduates, and many women wind up like the poor girl below, squatting in the piss-soaked mud next to a perfectly functional urinal that she doesn’t know she could use very easily IF she learned Stand2pee.

Female Urinary Device or

The Debate: Why learn to pee standing when I can use a device to assist me, a FUD, or as some affectionately call a Female Urinary Device?

P-Mate, Go-Girl, Urinelle, She-Nis, you name it, I’ve tried them. Out of curiosity, I ordered these products to try to see the effectiveness of these devices when I was tired of having to pop a squat to pee.

The P-Mate, which is very similar to the Urinelle and other products that go by different names, seemed a bit flimsy, since it is just cardboard. My first impression: Gross, uncomfortable, flimsy, the paper material of the P-Mate felt uncomfortable against my skin – I thought I was going to get a paper cut!

It dripped when I was finished peeing, and then another
question came to mind: where would you toss it if you were out
camping or hiking? In the bushes? Would you put a pee-soaked paper product in your pocket? Then it would become trash and litter! Also,
if you needed to pee for a long time, the product seemed to get flimsier
because of the paper material. The funnel gave no trajectory for the pee
so it basically landed near my foot. Finally, you need to always buy more after you run out. It seemed to do the trick when in need, but after I had finished, I did not feel *clean* down there if you know what I mean.

All in all, I would not want to carry around a filthy funnel after having
used it and I sure wouldn’t feel comfortable tossing it in the trash and contributing to suburban landfill.
