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.

Squat Toilets in China With Very Little Privacy

February 5th, 2013 | Stacy Kwan

As someone who has traveled to the parts of the world that have not embraced Western-style toilets, let me tell you first-hand, it is tough to be a girl at times.

As we outline in the Stand2Pee video, the ability to pee standing up comes in handy many times each day when confronted with glorified holes in the ground that women are expected to use without question. In some cases there are no doors or partitions and you have women, often times, many of women popping squats next to each other…lovely image, huh?

A Facebook follower sent me this link below of public toilets in China where they put thigh-high pink partitions around these floor toilets, offering just enough room to straddle and squat. Honestly, I’m not sure how I would personally handle this situation. There is not enough room to stand and aim, so I suppose I would have to conform and deal with my cramped surroundings.

My belief here is that if Chinese women are willing to use this type of facility with limited privacy, they would be willing to use urinals with partitions, provided China begins teaching girls how to pee standing up.

Women Can Use Amsterdam Urinals

November 30th, 2012 | Stacy Kwan

In the past year I have had lots, and I mean lots of pictures sent to me. Some are of girls that have conquered Stand2Pee, some are perverts who have no life and some are pictures of girls who have had to pee so bad they have resorted to the absurd.

When I say absurd, I mean girls that have had to squat in a compromising place while their male friends easily stand, or back into a urinal rather than stand and use the Stand2Pee method taught on our Instructional DVD.  Now to be fair, most women do not know about what our DVD teaches, and many still, prefer to be tragic and get into absurd positions.

This picture is a perfect encapsulation; Amsterdam’s famous street urinals. Girls stare in bewilderment, anger, envy and amazement all at the same time as guys walk up, go, and walk away, when women need to find a coffee shop, doorway or spot between two parked cars. This girl backed up to the urinal and sat on the edge to pee. Poor thing. If she learned the Stand2Pee method she would be standing same as the guy.

This is also another reason why a FUD – Female Urinary Device – or essentially a funnel, is not the solution. Forget your FUD and you are SOL – Squatting On Land!

Why A Girl Would Want To Learn How To Pee Standing Up

October 3rd, 2010 | Stacy Kwan

Many have asked this question: “Why would a girl want to learn to pee standing up?”  Most doubt that this skill is possible for a woman, and some women claim they have never had a need to pee anywhere other than a clean toilet and never outdoors.  But ask yourself: Do you enjoy outdoor activities?  Do you play sports? Ever go backpacking, hiking or camping? Do you enjoy nightlife, clubs or concerts? Have you ever found yourself away from a bathroom and really needed to pee, and there you were outside with no other option?  Did you pop a squat and pee?

Some girls have never experienced this and live in a bubble, but they are in the minority.  Sure, the occasional squat outdoors isn’t that bad, but what if you were in a situation where squatting to pee wouldn’t be desirable, or if you knew ahead of time you’d be squatting several times that day, like on a hiking trip?  Or imagine you are at a bonfire and need to pee; the sand is unstable and you could easily tip over while squatting. The wind is blowing the sand all around you and into your pants, and the guys are just standing up and aiming.  And of course we have all used public restrooms say, at a park or movie theater, and you know those toilets tend to be very unsanitary and can smell atrocious.

I would like to share on personal experience from when I was on a hiking trip in Yosemite National Park, a number of years ago.  There was a long line for the outhouses at the beginning of the trail, and the stall I ended up in smelled like death!  It was basically a big toilet that had no running water and had flies buzzing all over the place. It was disgusting!

At that time, I didn’t know how to pee standing up, but I can tell you right then I really wished I could!

My guy friends on that trip could just stand away from that filth and shoot right in with no problem.  We girls, however, had to somehow hover or squat over the toilet, or heaven forbid, sit on the seat without a seat cover! Of course we could always pop a squat outside near a bush, where tons of people were walking by and something could crawl into your pants. What a choice!

The Stand2Pee Instructional DVD will allow you the opportunity to learn how to pee standing up from the convenience of your own home without the assistance of any funnels or devices.  That’s right, women CAN learn to pee standing up naturally! Our DVD will guide you step-by-step, training you with the necessary progressions to prepare mentally and physically to pee standing up with bottoms on AND without the use of any devices.

Learning to pee standing up will definitely help those who find themselves squatting when they have no other options, waiting in long lines for a dirty stall…plus it’s incredibly cool!
