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.
