A German firm hitherto dedicated to taking the piss out of men has now turned its attention to women, with the urine-sucking Ladybag. The Lady Bag Yup, what we have here is allegedly the "world's first pocket urinal for women", which will put an end to cross-legged queuing up at lavatories, "squirming on disgusting toilets" or …
Where's the icon for the mind bleach?
Desperately trying to un-see what has been seen.
Splashed keyboard because I just couldn't hold on any longer.
What's with the funny shape?
And couldn't you recover your costs by selling used bags to collectors on ebay?
You want a she-wee...
...pop into your local camping shop, or Boots. It comes with a handy spout to assist aiming which I'm advised makes it easier. Something one might have thought dear to Jerry.
The she-wee would appear to be easier to use standing/sitting, whereas this might only suit a squatting position, which might not always be possible, but i'm chromosomaly unable to test this.
AC for the sheer humiliation of knowing this.
Speaking as someone who's had to improvise with bottles in long past lager emergencies, I hope they sell them in multipacks. 700ml is no match for a proper night on the lager.
"Do not swallow the super-absorbent crystals."
Quote from the website:
"Do not swallow the super-absorbent crystals."
Just imagine having your stomach juices superabsorbed!!!!
Uses and non-uses
According to the company, one of the possible uses is "in the air". Explain just how that is going to work......
Sensibly, the company advise against using this whilst driving.
Love the icons
The icons on the bottom of the bag could be useful for the comments section on this site ;)
They must never have been flying then...
Slightly concerned why the 'suggested accessories' for a travel toilet are 3 different types of wheel chocks!?!?
Might I humbly suggest that the composer of the headline of this piece takes a grammar lesson?
Quite apart from anything else there is the appalling implication that one bag is to be used by more than one woman, whether or not they are involved in a Finnish wife-carrying challenge at the time.
Slow news day?
Shewee's are old news. Very old news.
Seriously the icons on the bag, are they necessary??
AC - For even commenting on this!
I think the problem...
...with she-wees is that you're still left with a liquidy problem at the end of it all - not great in a car, etc. The male version sounds great for festivals - sounds better than keeping a large bottle in that antechamber bit.
Lager because let's face it, it's the cause of moist toilet emergencies.
* Ryanair may charge cattle to use the bog"
Cue in-flight sales of this product as an alternative to paying the full rate. Now that would really take the piss!
if they've asked Paula Radcliffe for an endorsement?
Agreed. The Germans are obviously not fully up to speed on the English girls who now drink pints during their binges, and therefore flow in quantities formerly only achieved by men.
Seriously? Ok that name is just too funny though I do wonder what with the shape and all that where do they store it when its not in use?
*shudders* OK I need to get that out of my head.
weebag I understand
but how exactly do portable women differ from normal women?
Register units, FFS!!
Lester, what are you thinking? Please use "The Reg online standards", which indicate that we are talking about 0.1667 MilliJubs (*).
Now that's a measurement which I understand.
(*) As per http://www.theregister.co.uk/Design/page/reg-standards-converter.html
That is all
Pushing 1l limit: beer drinking!
Recoup costs: recycle the piss, surely there is lots of nitrate, salts and hormone in a bag of piss?
Festivals: at a punk rock show you could hurl the used bags at the band!
I can just see it now...
On Japanese porn sites everywhere, used wee bags for sale alongside used knickers, all guaranteed to have been used by "hot schoolgirls".
Mine's the one with the ziplock bags in the pocket
Lacking the targeted genitalia, I must use my own imagination to try and imagine if this would work as intended. I'm stuck on "It can be used in cars, or to avoid dirty toilets or at open-air festivals when you don't want to queue. You can just nip round the back of the toilet and use this." I can only assume she means used while seated in a car, but I would imagine the positioning would be difficult to achieve to prevent any "spillage". And forget about it if you're wearing pants.
Also, the company may want to think twice before telling people to do their business out in the open considering that doing so is an arrestable offense and will likely get you put on the sex offenders register.
Pictures or it didn't happen
Or better still, playmobile. Thanks in advance
She knows about "those" showers.
Having been accompanied by various women on many long drives and to a few festivals, I can state with 100% certainty that it is in fact possible for them to urinate without the presence of any kind of artificial device.
The process involves: finding or making cover*, relocation of lower garments and then assuming a squatting position and letting nature take its course.
*if no cover can be found, then a friend may improvise some cover by simply holding a large coat or towel.
I assume this idea of storing the urine in a bag for later use is just a fetish of some kind.
Lego re-enactment please...
Filling a need we didn't know we had, at the expense of the landfills. How is this more useful than an adult diaper? Seems to me the unreferenced* but well-known NASA love-triangler had the right idea.
@ Eh? AC - if one wears a skirt, there's no exposure in the arrestable sense. Then again, if one wears a skirt, one doesn't need the wee bag...
@ northern monkey - the liquidy problem is what this solves, using super-absorbent crystals to soak the stuff up.
@Steve Evans - FYI, Germans (incl. some women) drink from litersteins, which is almost 2 pints imperial and just over 2 pints US. And IIRC, a half-liter of beer (about a pint) is the smallest measure you can get in a pub.
* Missed one there, Lester...
These would be worth having just to get one back on Ryanair charging for using the toilet.
Imagine a plane-load of women handing over these to staff for disposal :)
And yoghurt pot??????????
Nurse: Can you fill this?
Woman: Not from here I can't !
"Wont [sic] Someone think of the Children?"
I did; knowing my boys, they'd find two used ones and start a slapping game with them.
(Mine's the sou'wester, with full face guard)
Ummmmmmmmmm so how do you "ungell" the contents for that refreshing golden shower at the end of a hard days hiking or for the after dinner drinks?
