Ladies, I Don't Want to Know if You've Used One...

I received a "tip" today about something really unique and quirky in Port Charlotte, a "she-urinal." So, I stopped off at the Dairy Queen at exit 170 of I-75.

And there it is, in a private bathroom with a standard toilet. How does it work? I don't know from personal experience but from what I understand, ladies are suppose to grab a fresh cup (see the dispenser to the left) and insert it on the hose, then go!

I know what you're thinking, "gross." I'm thinking that, too. In its defense, it looked clean but I just don't see the point, unless someone has issues sitting down or doesn't like sitting on used toilet seats.

Apparently, this isn't the only Dairy Queen with a she-urinal, at least according to Urinal.net.

Why did I stop by to see it? I had to see it to believe it, plus, I have a soft spot for toilets, remember my article on using a Japanese toilet?

This this freaks me out! I actually learned to appreciate Japanese toilets and almost prefer them now, but I am not going to be using one of those urinals any time soon. Nope. Not going to happen.

Hi Lillian. I'm with you, it's FREAKY!

Kathy - you're braver than me. On your visit down here, we'll go (no punt intended)

Interesting--haven't heard about anything like this in China. There are some strange toilets here. So, is it better than using a squatter?

JA Huber said...

Matthew - I have no idea. Personally, the thing scares me, but I can probably talk Kathy into trying it out and will post an update about that :)

Kristen - yes, it does look like too much work, especially if one's wearing slacks. And, I don't want to know how it works. Ewww!
