The Travel Mate (women only)

Travel MateI cannot believe that someone didn’t think of this before because it is hilarious. This is an item to be used by woman only, I wouldn’t say ladies as it is not particularly ladylike shall we say.

First of all, I’ll explain what it actually is. This item is called a ‘Travel Mate’ which is a non-invasive urinary product for women. The one inch by six inch soft plastic tube is contoured to fit the shape of the female anatomy. So really, what I’m saying is, you can pee standing up!

Just open your flies like a guy, insert the travel mate and there you have it! In fact in most cases, you don’t even need the use of toilet paper afterwards as it “wipes” off residual urine. If you really need a wee in the car, just whip out… your travel mate, and into a bottle!

The main idea behind this bizarre product is for camping, airplanes, wheel chair users and for when you want to avoid horrible germ ridden public toilets. Just pop it in your hand bag because you never know when you might need it.

When I showed my wife this device she was somewhat intrigued but when she thought about it more it kind of grossed her out a bit. She does genuinely want to give it a go however so perhaps I could give it to her at Christmas! What will the parents think when she opens it up?

In my opinion, whoever invented this is a genius. Not only is it practical, but it takes feminism to a whole new level.

  1. If you were going to take a wizz into a bottle why couldnt the female just stick the bottle straight into there anatomy?

    I heard about this a while back, supposedly some store replaced the females cubicles with urinals and sells these things in the toilet.

  2. Where can this item be bought? Is it available in South Africa? Or something similar?

  3. There are several of these types of devices for women, each styled a little differently. You don’t really have to buy anything though. I saw an idea and I tried it. Very simple: Use a plastic coffee can lid, cut off the rim (the part that keeps the lid on the can), then fold it slightly, place it behind the urinary outlet and while holding it with both hands and aiming it slightly downwards, urinate. That’s all there is to it and no one will know what the plastic is for and it fits flat and neatly in your jeans pocket! Incidently, in case you’re concerned about getting your hands wet accidentally, urine is sterile as it leaves the body.

  4. Well, I have a very similar device and I use it for long trail runs and hikes – yes I still have to go off trail a bit and behind a tree but, really, there are NO restrooms out in the wilderness and I don’t want to have to expose anymore of myself than I have to in case another hiker comes along! These things truly make it poosible to pee with a good deal of modesty!

    As for a thinner adult diaper – ICK! I would hate to have to hike and run in a wet diaper or have to change one!!! lol

    Anyway mine works SO well I am trying to find another one – unfortunately they no longer make the brand I have!

  5. It’s the most AWESOME devices invented!!!! BUY ONE!!!!! You will not be dismayed! I just dug mine out after years of not using it, and I remember how easy it was to just pee without all the spraying and clean-up.. Sometimes I just use it because it’s easier! Enjoy!!! 🙂

  6. Best thing to have on a festival! Just march right up to the male-piss-rins, stand in front of them, look them in the eye and start urinating! 😀

  7. Does anyone know where you can buy these now. I have used these for years but can’t find one online anywhere anymore
