People often ask “Why would I want to stand up and pee?” Until they see it in action they have trouble visualizing why it would be advantageous. It’s all about convenience, comfort, and safety. You keep your outfit on which means you don’t expose yourself to other people or the elements. No need to grapple with something that is hard to remove such as a ski suit, backpack, or caving suit. If you have trouble sitting or squatting or don’t want to for any reason – you don’t have to. It is faster, easier, and safer to pee whenever you need to! Here are some examples of times when a pStyle comes in handy:
* Outdoor activities – camping, back packing, skiing/snowboarding, rock climbing, bike trips, kayaking trips, hiking, caving, horseback riding, hunting, fishing
* Outdoor work – military, farming, ranching, landscaping, construction, gardening
* Travel and public events – music festivals, road trips, using urinals, any place with limited or unsavory public toilets
* Physical reasons – sprained or broken bones, knee problems, FTMs
*Roadside stops with children
The pStyle measures approximately 3.8 cm (1.5 in) tall, 3.8 cm (1.5 in)
wide and 19 cm (7.5 in) long.
*How to use the pStyle (from thepstyle.com)*
Loose pants with a zipper and underwear with a fly are ideal but other outfits can be accommodated. Pull underwear to the side if it doesn’t have a fly, taking care that it is fully out of the way. Place the pStyle so the widest part is between your legs and centered under your urethra. Tilt the open end slightly down, relax, and pee. It may feel strange at first but don’t worry – relaxing is key. When you have completely finished peeing, bend your knees slightly and pull the pStyle forward to remove the remaining drops. You can practice in the shower.
*Cleaning the pStyle*
If it is convenient, wash the pStyle with soap and water. Otherwise simply rinse with water – even a water bottle will do. If neither option is available shake the pStyle vigorously – this removes most of the urine – and wash it at the next convenient time. Sanitary wipes can also be used to clean it. The pStyle is dishwasher safe. Note: Urine is sterile as it leaves your body. However do not share your pStyle without disinfecting it first as some vaginal fluid may be on the edge of it after wiping. If you have any kind of vaginal infection it is highly
advisable to clean the pStyle with soap and water between uses to avoid re-infecting yourself.
*How to carry the pStyle*
Once you become used to the convenience of the pStyle you may find that
you always want to have it with you like a cell phone or a wallet. Some people find that it is worth it to wear more pStyle compatible clothing for ease of use or carrying it. Below is a list of possible places to carry your pStyle. bike bags

*Tips to stop dripping*
Wait a moment before wiping with the pStyle. Do a few kegel exercises to
fully empty the bladder. Bend your knees deeply and focus on using a
firm, slow, upward motion to wipe. If the back end of your pStyle has
become compressed and narrow (less than 3.2 cm/1.25″) put something
about the size of a golf ball in it overnight to make it wider again.
Pay attention when using the pStyle. It is possible to pee on yourself
if you tilt the pStyle sideways or get it caught in your underwear. This
often happens when you are so confident about it that you don’t focus on
what you are doing. Also don’t pee into the wind!
