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.”
