FUD: Female Urination Devices
Have you ever had to pee but when you find a bathroom you are disgusted by the unclean conditions? Have you been camping or hiking and wished there was a way “to go” without having to lower your pants, exposing more skin than desirable and needing to squat low to the ground with the possibility of stinging plants or insects getting in the way? There are products available to help make it easier to go when confronted with outdoor or unsanitary conditions. These products are portable and hygienic devices that give women the ability to pee while standing. The following is a list of products and website links which describe details about some of the F.U.D.s on the market.

thepeepocket.com The Pee Pocket is a single-use urinary device that is perfect for athletes, travelers, the elderly, disabled, pregnancy, parents of young girls, post-surgery patients – anyone who might have to go while on the go!
The Pee Pocket® was developed by a team of doctors who were fed up with dirty and unsanitary public bathrooms for their families. These surgeons developed a single-use, disposable, biodegradable device so that everyone can finally take a stand®, avoid unsanitary conditions and the potential for skin infections.
How to Use
Hold The Pee Pocket® between your thumb and fingers and squeeze together to create a funnel.
Lower pants or lift skirt.
Place the large opening so it completely covers the flow of urine area and point the opposite tip down slightly.
Relax and go.
Clean with the hygienic tissue wipe.
Return The Pee Pocket® and wipe to the disposable bag, then toss.
The company says: The demand for The Pee Pocket® has been so great by patients that a larger 48-pack carton was developed for hospitals, clinics, acute and long-term care facilities. Elderly women, post-surgical patients, (hip, knee, etc.), pregnant women and men who have trouble squatting or bending down to pee have regained their independence to relieve themselves.
