Once you try the Urinelle, you might never go back

The Urinelle will let you pee like a man...and may change your life in the process.   (Shutter Stock)

(Newser) – Michelle Rabil has discovered "the best thing to happen to vaginas since beltless pads": paper funnels that allow her to pee just like a man. Urinelles—or, as she lovingly refers to them, "pee cones"—were "obviously thought up by a female genius who hates public toilets as much as I do." They've literally changed her life, and—bonus!—they’re biodegradable, she writes on Salon.

Highly superior to similar products like the She-nis (12 inches long, dildo-like, and impossible to explain to airport security) and the WhizBiz (reusable, meaning you either rinse it off immediately or cart around a urine-soaked object), the flushable Urinelle can somehow “handle a full stream of lady pee and maintain its integrity.” Rabil “never realized how truly awesome peeing like a guy could be,” she writes. “When I use the cones I feel like I am entering a club I'm not supposed to belong to—and it feels awesome. If we can put a man on the moon, we surely can allow women to pee standing up.”

Ok... I posted a comment 9 months ago about how I'd have liked to have one of the things during a trip to Morocco... I've since bought some, tried them out during a biking trip in backwoods Mexico and wow... it really does make my life, if not better, much more sanitary. Public toilet seats can be really nasty and unsanitary. Shall I tell you all about a feces smeared toilet seat I encountered while cycling through a small town in the Yucatan? No... I'll spare you. Trust me when I say, I thanked the goddess of female bikers that I had a pee cone in my fanny pack. Guys... you still have it better, as you need no overpriced paper cardboard device to pee standing up, but this thing does work, women only need to open a zipper, place the cone and aim... and whizzzzzz.

The P-Mate is actually a much better product.
