Go-Girl website

GoGirl website
Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to urinate while standing up. It’s neat. It’s discreet. It’s hygienic.

GoGirl is easy to use. Just lower your panties, and put GoGirl against your body, forming a seal. Aim and, well, pee. Pretty simple, huh?

GoGirl fits easily in your purse, pocket, or glove compartment. It’s a must for travel and sports. And it’s great for everyday––no more crouching over or trying to cover up an unsanitary public toilet.

While the concept may be new to you, European women have used female urination devices for years. GoGirl’s not the first device of its kind. But try it. And we think you’ll agree it’s easily the best.

Only GoGirl is made with flexible, medical grade silicone. Dispose of it after use. Or clean and reuse as you like. (Urine is sterile, but the product can come into contact with contaminates during use, so take precautions when cleaning.) Our patented splash guard eliminates messing and spilling. Once you practice a time or two, using a GoGirl is going to feel like second nature. You won’t be like a man. You’ll just pee like one.

Best. Invention. EVER. …Why didn't I think of this?!? I am so getting one of these. …Seriously, it's a great idea.

Gotta wonder what people are going to think that is if it falls out of your purse while you're looking for change.

there's a woman that didn't catch the clap off a bus stop toilet?

I wonder if this guy patented that design.

Those were my two cents.

I remember hearing about prototypes of this product, and for the women's sake I'm glad it's available to the public in North America. It'll still take awhile to get used to a female peeing beside me, standing up on those long road trips…

Do these come with hand sanitizer? Are these disposable?

I can't imagine the hygiene issues with this. Wait. I can.

…We have?! Damn, I wish I had one of these when I have to use bus stop toilets. Those places are like faeces warzones.

What world do you live in? The great majority of people don't wash their hands in conventional bathrooms why bother here?

Besides just dump it into the garbage next to the diapers and used tampons.

Most of the complaints here are based on using a public restroom, but how many of you ever had to maintain and clean one? The horror, the horror.

You can't always spray it down with a fire hose though that's what it usually required.

I think I read somewhere that they do come with little sanitizing wipes as well as a bag for disposal. While they are reusable and are even dishwasher safe, I think they encourage throwing them away after a few uses. They're cheap, too–one costs about $7.00. I can already envision these being sold in rest stop vending machines…that would be awesome.

Therewas this…
Urine is sterile, but the product can come into contact with contaminates during use, so take precautions when cleaning
Urine is stinky, but not unhygienic. The vagina it touches is more unhygienic… but then underpants touch the same place all the time and they don't require any super special medical grade cleansing or disposal. :)

Urine is mostly amonia and nitrogen. We use one as a cleaner and the other as a fertilizer.

Pissing in the woods is actually good for a lot of plant life.

As many have already pointed out, urine is a sterile liquid that contains anti-bacterial properties.

There's a myth I once heard that soldiers were taught to pee on their wounds if no other sanitation was available to prevent infection. I don't know if this is legitimate though but I'm sure that Bravo1102 can clarify this.
Those were my two cents.

Oooh, they should try to prove/disprove that on Mythbusters….though I'm not sure how they would accomplish that. I'm sure they would find a way, though…

They'll probably have a hard time finding a test subject willing to take a bullet so that they can test this myth.

Not required. It's not a myth that it's pretty sterile. The “myth” is that urinating on wounds was taught to and or practised by soldiers.
Interviews and looking in historical reccords would be the way you'd prove or disprove that.

Why?
If they did they'd be idiots.

It's easy enough to test how “sterile” urine is. And soldiers would know better than them if it was a practise they were taught. ;)

You have seen a Mythbuster episode right?

THIS is what they did when they were testing if you could shoot a fish in a barrel.



Can you believe they're being paid for this?

I'm not questioning their silliness. But the fact that the urine thing isn't really that sort of “myth”, is it?

Where it is a “myth” is the idea that it's a medicine if you drink it, or it makes you live longer etc.

Sure the myth could be subjected to them. Just reappraised into something like: “Can urine prevent infection on wounds?”. While there's no doubt that urine is sterile, one might doubt that it can disinfect wounds. I've also heard that it helps to urinate on wounds caused by jelly fish. Something about that the ammonia is supposed to neutralize the poison.

I'm sure they could think of some creative ways to test out that myth.
Those were my two cents.

As much as water flushing a wound can. It's more a matter for real science and logic.
The Jellyfish thing is a myth.

This is somewhere along the lines of tampons in a bag– I imagine if a mugger took it and ransacked it in front of me, if it's a guy, he'd (man)squeal, drop it, and run.
Other than that, Thank God.
Peeing while hover-sitting in the wild is torture.

…wow, this is weird.

Most of the toilets - especially service station toilets - are very nice. Though like zad says hovering in the woods… I'd like a Go-Girl please! Even though that name annoys the hell out of me.
