The Shewee

After a fellow blogger alerted me of the existence of the Shewee, a portable urinating device for women, I immediately went to and discovered that I have been peeing my pants during races for absolutely no reason. I am now going to carry a shewee with me at all times -- just in case. For only $12.25, you too can own a portable urinating device. It comes in 5 snazzy colors. I'm still trying to decide between hot pink and forest green. Read the following instructions to see if a Shewee may be right for you!
**The instructions below are copied directly from

"We are confident that you’ll find it easy to Shewee, even liberating, but here are some instructions for you in case you aren’t sure....

1. Undo trousers
2. Push underwear to one side
3. Place Shewee gently against the body with the outlet pipe directed away from you
4. Aim urine to a suitable place – away from feet, into a toilet or a container
5. When finished, pull Shewee forwards to wipe and catch any drips (liquid repellent surface ensures no drips)
6. Place your reusable Shewee back into a bag or resealable container

Tip! Practice with Shewee in the shower to find the best position for you.

Shewee is washable by hand or machine and can withstand temperatures up to 120˚C"

After seeing pictures of the Shewee, I decided to run to the Dollar Tree and pick up a funnel to try instead! I'll make sure to let you all know how it goes!

Silly girl...
It's not as easy as all that. You're going to need some pointers.
1. Never use this into the wind.
2. Always lift the seat up first.
3. Always put the seat back DOWN last so non-Shewee-ers won't fall in.
4. Get a squirt gun and practice your aim for a few days first.
5. Ask Aaron for a demonstration if you don't get the hang of it ;)

I picked up a similar invention while in Europe called the Pee-Mate. These babies come in a convieniantly compacted six pack and the funnels are disposable. Who wants to carry around a peed on funnel, even if it's in the bag (sorry shewee!). I thought they were hilarious and could really come in handy. I've never put the Pee-Mate to the test but I'll give you one to try and you can let me know how it goes ;)
