Another Kind of Freedom for Women


P-MateSince quite a while ago, women struggled for the right of being equal to men. A Danish woman took the fight further and imagined the supreme freedom women missed so far: the freedom to pee standing up! Her invention, called P-Mate is extremely simple, and very easy to use (at least this is what they claim). It is basically a sort of plasticized cardboard funnel. You place the entrance of the funnel directly under your urethra, between your legs, pee into it and be careful not to point its tip above your shoes.

Instructions for use (excerpt from the Female Freedom website):

1.P-Mate 12.P-Mate 23. P-Mate 3 4. P-Mate 4(words are useless)

There are a lot of product benefits listed on the P-Mate website:

  • The P-Mate is a revolutionary way for women to pee discreetly without having to pull down their pants and squat.
  • The P-Mate allows women to pee standing up.
  • The P-Mate is the most amazing female urinary device.
  • The P-Mate gives women the freedom to pee like men.
  • The P-Mate is clean and hygienic.
  • The P-Mate is covered with a 4-leaf clover design as it is good luck to have one with you when you are in need.
  • The P-Mate does NOT get all wet and soggy after use. You can easily slip it back into a pocket or bag for later disposal if you are outdoors where there is no garbage can.

The 4-leaf clover design is definitely the best reason to buy some P-Mates and try to be free like a man.

Easy, convenient and sanitary, the P-Mate is all women still needed to behave like men in every situation (although I will probably never understand why men don’t sit when they pee: it’s much more convenient, you can relax and there is no way to aim your shoes or the toilet cover).

Hey, girls, what do you think? Would you buy this product?

  1. My goodness, Simonne, what are you trying to do here? Is it one of your experimental posts for Google or what? 🙂

    Actually, I’ve heard about this product a year ago – well, the inventor is Canadian 🙂 But no, I won’t be buying this product. brrrr…

  2. I honestly can’t say why and who would buy that. I guess the only way you can find out is by tracking down the actual buyer and asking her the reasons for buying the product.

    I personally more curious to find out about the reaction of male-readers of your blog. Were they shocked as much as I was when they read (and actually saw!) this post or even more? 🙂

  3. Ha, ha! I just stumbled across that site and I could not believe my eyes. I wanted to see what other women think of that. I cannot imagine why would somebody want to use that thing. I did not research any keywords here 😉

  4. Um, the last thing I want to think of when entering the men’s room is, “I wonder if I’ll spot a woman peeing into a funnel.”

    BTW, why would a woman want to pee standing up anyways? Are men really that bad at leaving the toilet seat up?

  5. Well, Ronald, actually I have no idea why would a woman do that. This is why I posted this, to get some insights.

    Thanks, Vivien. I have to admit that I’ve reached the limit of my English knowledge: I’m not sure I understand what does it mean to have a wicked sense of humour. I suppose it’s a synonym of evil?

  6. Okay, I’ll be the first to say I’d use it. I do a lot of traveling over great distances in the middle of nowhere by car. There are not always convenient rest stops. This would prevent the pants around the knees squat that is undignified and somewhat compromising. So–I give this invention 2 thumbs up!

  7. well… wicked sense of humour is the one that’s outrageously funny, cleverly destructive, exquisitely fierce and admirably fearless.
    How’s that for explanations, Simonne? 🙂

    AuthorMomWithDogs – I guess it all boils down to convenience. For me it’s more inconvenient to use that thing than actually hold myself until a more convenient rest stop.

  8. lord oh lord.. 😀

    I first thought it might be a paid post Simonne 😀 but really, for some people, there are no limits…

    thanks for the good laugh – I soo needed it today

    but no, no way I would try competing with men in that category 😀

  9. Thank you AuthorMomWithDogs for your comment, and welcome here. I’m glad to see that somebody found this invention useful. As I’m not traveling such long distances, I was not in the situation of not having where to go.

    @Vivien (inspirationbit): thank you very much. That’s a good explanation, I got the point. I’m honoured by your words 🙂

    @pearl: I don’t write undisclosed paid posts (actually I don’t write paid posts at all, as nobody wanted to buy one yet). I’m happy I made you laugh.

  10. So my son’s girlfriend and I are trying to figure out who and why. I can actually see using it in the woods rather than the other way, she’s adamantly opposed.

    However, it’s not anything I have needed in the past 47 years, lol, pass on this one, but thanks for sharing!!

  11. Wow, this is really a concept taken to extremes. Peeing like men would never make me feel equal to them…Nope, I wouldn’t buy something like this. It is funny though! 🙂
