Eww but needs must pelvic floor and all that. Anyone tried this?

CeliaBowen Thu 26-Jun-14 00:56:11

I have one but I haven't tried it yet. On the instructions it says practise when you are in the shower!

DD is 5 and she had an unfortunate outdoor wee-ing incident recently and I have let her have a go with it (in the shower) as the website suggests children can also use them! Unfortunately she thinks it is hilarious and loves telling people all about it...

Not much help to you, I appreciate! grin

I bought one too but it just felt wrong grin didn't even practice

Oh lord no - just go pee in a bush

nespressofan Thu 26-Jun-14 01:03:33

haha! why practise in the shower? Just the very thought of running water - oh sorry must rush!

nespressofan Thu 26-Jun-14 01:04:54

I can't go in a bush???!!!!! Why? I would piddle all over my shoes.

I have one, only practised I think the secret is to wee slowly smile have not the courage to use it for real blush not quite worked out the logistics of getting it in place, must try again.

I've got one and have used it for real. It's great for festival loos as it's easier than trying to squat over a portaloo while drunk. When I went to a festival pregnant I used it at night in the tent to pee into a bottle which I chucked away in the morning, there was no way I was trekking to the portaloos five times in the night.

If you are out in the countryside it's easier to just squat in a bush.

I use them at Glastonbury - much less stinky than using the other loos.

You won't piddle all over your shoes. Squat feet wide apart for stability and so you don't wee on your shoes. Trousers down. Use one arm over the top of your trousers and hooked under to pull them out of the way of the spray. Vigorous bum wiggle and you are done. Similar for a poo, just make sure you dig a hole and cover or pack it out (best option). Ditto bog roll, packing out is best option, burn if you have to. Do not leave toilet paper behind.

My sister bought one to take to Download - it saves you sitting on festival toilets which are a day or so old.

For general camping, no.

I have one use it for travelling round Asia and Africa where there are squat toilets, its very useful. I was once in a queue for the ladies in Kenya and there were 3 of us in the queue with one. I recommend them.

Try to use it before you get to the stage where you really need to go. You don't want to be fumbling and rushed.

Legs apart. Insert the pointy end a little way into your vagina - only a little way. Make a seal round the rest of the open edge with your labia. Hold it firm against your body. Lean forward to pee.

I love mine as I often go walking in places where there are no trees/bushes.

what is it? what are you talking about??

MyrtleDove Fri 27-Jun-14 14:34:07

It's a little funnel thing so women can pee without a toilet with less mess.

So you can pee standing up without showing the world your arse or fanjo.

It's an unfortunate colour though, especially from a distance. smile

Just checked mine's a whiz freedom same idea though.

CeliaBowen Sun 29-Jun-14 20:30:05

Hang on smellsofbiscuits you don't insert it in your vagina at all otherwise there is no way I would be letting DD1 who is FIVE use it!

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Sun 29-Jun-14 20:43:27

Insert the pointy end a little way into your vagina - only a little way. Make a seal round the rest of the open edge with your labia.

Aaagh! No no no no no NO!

Other way around!

Wee doesn't come out of your vagina!

TheCowThatLaughs Sun 29-Jun-14 20:50:52

I just wee in a measuring jug in the tent. No need to stick it up your fanny, just hold it against you using the handle.

Why on earth would you insert anything into your vagina to wee??????

SmellsOfBiscuits Sun 29-Jun-14 20:57:39

It's the best way for me to use it without leakage so that's what I do. IIRC, the instructions that come with it suggest you try it out in the shower and find a way that suits you. That's what I've done. Used it that way for a few years now with no problem.

I wouldn't use it that way with a 5 yr old (not sure I'd use it with a 5 yr old at all tbh)

And I know where wee comes from, thanks.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Sun 29-Jun-14 21:07:47

Oh hang on a sec, when you say pointy bit do you mean the tube or the big flangey bit?

And it is fairly unusual for the urethral opening to be located inside the vagina.

CeliaBowen Sun 29-Jun-14 22:23:13

I think this is another case of vagina/vulva mixup.

DD1 thought it was too hilarious anyway so she's happy to go back to squatting for now.

you can get something similar called a Travel John which is a funnelly thing attached to a plastic bag- and the bag has a packet of crystals stuff in it which absorbs the wee. You can remove these if you want and just wee into the plastic bag if you can dispose of it somewhere ( the wee not the bag)
