It never ceases to amaze me what actually get patented these days. After unearthing products that were foolish (the Snuggie), silly (the breast pillow) and intriguing (the iPod vibrator) I think I may have come across one that tops them all.
Basically it’s a funnel made of medical grade silicon that lets women urinate like a man by placing the device over her vagina when making a tinkle. The urine travels down the shaft of the product and out the unique tip into the toilet. They suggest practicing at home in the shower a few first before actually taking your Go Girl out for a real-world test. We don’t want any spillage now do we, ladies?
According to the official site, Go Girl is germ resistant and easy to clean so you can reuse it repeatedly with no worries. It comes with a reusable and compact tube that you can carry your Go Girl around in your purse or pocket. If you don’t like the idea of lugging it around all night, the product is totally biodegradable so you can toss it in the trash with no worries.
As silly as it sound, this might actually be a good idea. Not that I’d have a clue what it’s like for y’all, but I’m sure it’s not comfortable for women hovering over public toilets or port-a-potties when you’re out. With a Go Girl handy, though, you can avoid all the potential germs and muscle strain by peeing straight on like the guys do. It could also come in handy on a long road trip. Then again, what do I know. When I told my homegirl about this, she said, “I like the fact that I have to squat, it makes me feel like a lady.”
According to CNN, Go Girl founder/president Sarah Dillon is selling about 40,000 of these female urination devices a week. Going for $6.99 a pop (or $18.99 for a three-pack), the Go Girl has become quite profitable for Dillon whose product tagline is “Don’t Take Life Sitting Down.”
Peep the links below for more details or how to get one for yourself, as well as other Go Girl products. I need to go invent something. I can’t write anymore about this thing without cracking up. That and the fact that the cover for Ciara’s single “Go Girl” features her squatting (see last image). I’m done. **Dies**
What do you think of this product? Is it a great idea or a waste of seven bucks? Would you try it out if you got it for free? Would you bug out if you were in a public bathroom and saw another woman’s feet facing the other direction under the stall? Would you feel funny carrying this thing around after you’ve used it? Fellas, what would you think if you caught your girl peeing standing up?
