Sitting On A Urinal Out of Desperation

January 9th, 2014 | Stacy Kwan

Since the website launched and I started writing a blog discussing the trials and tribulations of being female away from the comforts of home, the mail started pouring in. Some has been positive, some negative, some perverted, and some plain weird! Along the way, many have sent pictures that match the descriptive words above. Some of these pictures are of girls sitting on a urinal.

Yes, I said SITTING on a urinal!

For the life of me, I cannot fathom sitting on the lip of a urinal with my bare skin touching any part of the porcelain and the only logic I can lend to this scenario is that desperate times call for desperate measures.

Woman Sitting on a Urinal at a Concert

Someone snapped this picture at a concert, and it’s seems to be pretty clear this is not a posed shot of some girls in a college dorm in a controlled environment, but one where the lines to both the women’s room and the stalls in the men’s room were too long and the only option available was to back in to the urinal.  All I can say is, poor thing.

For all the Go-Girl fans and women that use a funnel, this is the perfect example of what happens when you forget the FUD – you are SOL!  The one-day investment into learning how to pee standing up pays lifetime dividends – dividends this woman in that exact moment likely wishes she had made.

Popping A Squat Because She Cannot Use A Urinal

January 25th, 2013 | Stacy Kwan

Think for a moment how many events the average woman attends in her lifetime where the ability to pee standing up would be faster, cleaner and easier. Dozens, easily. Hundreds, for sure. Thousands, possibly.

The mall, the movie theater, hiking, camping, bonfires, concerts, clubs, ball games, and probably dozens more.

It seems where women typically have the hardest time are at large-scale music festivals where there are porta-potties and the bushes, and not much else. On occasions, the show organizers wheel in portable urinals, and this solves the problem for men, but as you can see here, the lack of Stand2Pee knowledge promts these gals to pop a squat right next to the available urinals for the simple reason – they don’t know how to pee standing up. It is a problem with a solution, and it does not come in the shape of a funnel!

Stand2Pee Hate Mail From Scared Men

January 16th, 2011 | Stacy Kwan

When we launched the Stand2Pee website and announced we had produced the first instructional DVD that teaches women how to pee standing up, it was a given we would get a lot of mail, good, bad and not much in between.

The thought of a woman peeing standing up is seen as liberating by many, perverted by some and against God’s will by others. Let’s face it, this is a very polarizing subject, but any idea that some of the venom we would receive…The hate mail began immediately after the press release and only increased as got press coverage and I did radio interviews all over North America, from San Francisco to Toronto, from Juneau to New Jersey.

Clearly many men are threatened by the thought that their precious urinals are no longer their exclusive domain, while others are just afraid of change. Of course not all the mail is negative, in fact, we get at least one positive email a month. That’s a joke, folks!

Here are some of the emails and my responses:

“For a woman to stand to pee is unnatural. This is disgusting and you are disgusting…”

“A woman standing to pee? Is this a f***ing joke”

“Give up the penis envy you (ethnic comment) bitch…”

“If I ever see you at a urinal I’ll f*** you up…”

“God meant women to squat, I hope you burn in hell…”

And these were the civil comments. This shows me we are making a splash, so keep it coming!

Really now, nowhere is it written in stone that women must sit/squat and men stand. And if someone can find it, I am here trying to change it. I am sick of the debate between Man and Woman that ends with them woman saying, “Well, the only advantage you men have is being able to pee standing up.”

I and now 1000′s of women are now living proof that the debate above is dying pretty quick!
