You go, girl!

Friday, November 6, 2009

I've never really considered myself a germophobe but I admit, I get a little creeped out by the state of some public restrooms. I double or triple the toilet seat covers and keep lots of tissue in my purse...just in case.

I saw this new product on the market that is likely targeted to women like me, which I guess would be any woman who has ever used a public restroom.

It's called the Go Girl and their tagline is, Don't take life sitting down.

What is it?, you ask. It's a female urination device, FUD for short. It allows you to pee standing up like a man. Finally!

Here are the instructions:

Just lower your panties, and put GoGirl against your body, forming a seal. Aim and, well, pee.

I don't know. Sounds complicated.

I would probably pee all over my hand anyway. And then what do you do with it after you pee?

Put it back in the container?


Wash it in the sink in front of everyone waiting to use the bathroom?


The website offer all kinds of handy tips for places that you can take your GoGirl and there's even a blog where current users can contribute their stories.

The two lovelies were 4 wheeling in the woods and brought their GoGirls along.

What if they accidentally dropped them and they got mixed up?


And for the true enthusiast, there's even GoGirl gear.

You know, my car lease is up in a few weeks...


  1. Words fail. I will never be able to shout the words "Go, girl!!" as a means of encouraging female friends *ever* again.

  2. Hell yea. I need one of those for sure. Although I did watch a Penn & Teller episode of Bullshit! that informed me that your bum is actually cleaner than your face, even after sitting on a public toilet seat. It still grosses me out though. Like when you walk into a public toilet and someone has left little pee drops on the seat or a little friend in the toilet. Eeek. I just gagged.

  3. Okay...I can't decide if that is genius or if it is just plain ridiculous...

  4. I think I'd rather get caught pee'ing in a parking lot, or get poison ivy from squatting in the woods than carry around a pick device that I'm to pee in and then continue to carry it?

    Rememeber the card shop? If only you could've handed those out to the old customers that made 'messes' in the bathroom.

  5. I have no problem baring my ass in the woods - it's much better than a public restroom any day. Absolutely ridiculous, but if you're brave enough to try it - You go girl!

  6. Not to mention.... I personally would think a MAN was in the ladies room if I heard the sound of someone going while standing up. And we ALL know that a man going sounds completely different from a woman going simply because they're standing up! LOL "Don't worry ladies! It's just me whipping out my "Go Girl" peeing device!" LMAO!!

  7. Good grief, I understand the need, but this sounds like a bad idea on sooo many levels! Even putting the "how do I carry it AFTER?" question aside, what do you DO with it when you get home?! Is it dishwasher proof? And what if you need to pee more than once per trip? Carry several? Ick, ick and ICK!

  8. Haha, visions of being drunk spring to mind. I'm going to have to share this with the world.

  9. I know that there are so many disgusting things on toilet seats...but I'm pretty sure I'd rather sit on one than use one of those things.

    What do you do? Rinse it off in the restroom sink before you plop that in your purse?


  10. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I'm glad I'm a dude.

  11. i already cuss, spit, and rub things in dirt like a man, might as well piss like one too!

  12. LMAO. I have one, but have yet to USE it...maybe I should go camping, I feel a VLOG comin on...

    kidding, kinda.

  13. I'll be honest...there are somtimes that I wish I had a penis, but I am in no way envious of having to stand to pee! I do enough of that all day, I'd rather swaddle the toilet seat than have to stand and have to pee in that device! I'm like you, I'd probably end up pissing all over my hand!

  14. You are very imaginative. I think you could do anything.

  15. Oh my goodness! That is a heck of an invention.

    I definitely won't want to put it back in my purse after using it. I don't want any pee on me, even my own.

  16. LOL! We learn something new everyday!

    OK, Girl, be warned... you have opened the door to my number one pet peeve - and a whole lotta TMI - public restrooms. Ehhhhck! (I've been known to hold it for weeks.)

    I am obsessively allergic to public RRs and WILL PEE IN A STARBUCKS CUP IN MY JEEP before I'll use a known nasty one! (Not to stress, I'm a total pro at this, never spill and always have my Purell handy... Toldja - TMI)

    And since little GG looks to work in conjunction with a toilet, I'll be leaning more toward the trusty cup or an astronaut diaper.

    But thanks for the enlightenment! And, perhaps, the inspiration for my next blog post...

  17. Ew, ew, ew. These women need to hover and squat just like the rest of us! I swear....anyone will make anyTHING for a buck...and I can only suppose that ppl are actually buying this.

    I'd rather just hold it. (Tis better for the muscles if you do!)

  18. Um....err....I don't know if I am completely horrified, or just slightly horrified.

  19. Ladies, writing your name in the snow is only fun for a little while.

  20. Now I've seen everything. Actually, we're getting ready to leave on a trip and I asked my Mountain Man what he thought and he believes this is a device for older women who don't have sufficient leg muscles to squat so not wanting to seem totally elderly, I think I'll forgo this most ingenious contraption.
    Thanks for giving me the laugh of the day!

  21. Good God, whatever will they come up with next? I've heard of feminism, but seriously, trying to make us pee like men too? I'll definitely pass, in case someone see me and thinks "oh shit, she's a hermaphrodite". To all those considering it, YOU GO GIRLZ!!

  22. I'll never see Elmer Fud the same way again.

  23. can you imagine the looks on peooples face as you walk out of the stall after pointing towards the toilet? They'd think I had a ... can I say it on here? No.... okay well they'd think I had a penis.

  24. This seems less sanitary than hovering over a quetionable toilet.

    No unnatural devices are needed in a nature setting. Just do as the locals do.

  25. @Cogitator,
    I know!!

    @Britta B. Skeptic,
    I think I just threw up a little, too.

    @Lee the Hot Flash Queen,
    Right. It's on the fence.

    Oh God, the card shop. If only they had one of these for poop.

    @Travel Girl,
    I'm just the messenger. I'll pass.

    Can you imagine the stares when you came out? Of the bathroom, I mean.

    @Indigo Wrath,
    I think you put it next to your toothbrush.

    I don't think I could even do it sober!

  26. @Erin,
    I agree. I'll just hover.

    @Judge Fudge,
    LOL. Congratulations.

    Why not??

    @Stacie's Madness,
    Seriously? You have one???

    Can't say I've ever wished for a penis...

    You're too kind.

    I would just throw it out.

    Astronaut diaper! Too funny!

  27. @Kathryn,
    Agreed. I would rather risk infection and hold it, too!

    My sentiments exactly.

    @Mark Price,
    Oh c'mon. I bet that never gets old.

    @Mountain Woman,
    You go, you YOUNG girl!

    Just say no!

    @Christopher Zimmerman,


    I'll all about hovering.

  28. @Mia,
    I MEANT, I'm all about hovering.

  29. OMG...I saw this over at Jen's blog a few months ago and she basically had the same feelings about it as you!!

    I'm sorry, but to me it looks like a snap-on penis, doesn't it?


    Go, girl/boy!


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
