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.

Stand2Pee Satisfied Customer Email

January 20th, 2011 | Stacy Kwan

After my post a couple of days ago, I got a number of emails bashing the bashers and offering some love for Stacy Kwan and Stand2Pee, so thanks!

Here is part of an email from a gal who appears to be a rather satisfied customer:

“You know, I didn’t want to learn how to pee standing up until my friend prodded me into doing it because she said that I would need this sometime when I least expect it.  So I decided to buy your DVD after procrastinating for a few hours and a few glasses of wine.”

“Sure enough, several weeks later I was hiking with a group of friends on a chilly December afternoon. We had all had something warm before we left and had water along the way, but the coffee was the kicker and about an hour in one my friends really had to go.  The trail was sloped and uneven, so my friend took a good minute getting settled before she squatted. My turn came about an hour later and I was debating whether to squat or just go for it and freak out my hiking mates. I decided to stand and was able to pee neatly and cleanly without getting anything on my pants. Yes, my friends were freaking amazed, you should have seen them howl!”
