Hi All! :)

1.) Does everyone know that Diva Cup makes an all natural wash for the cup now? (I guess it's a body/cup wash, so it has many uses?)

2.) Since we're on the general topic of liberation and stuff like that. Does everyone know that girls can pee standing up? (Like aiming and peeing in a urinal and everything...just like guys?) It's so awesome!

I pee in the shower standing up all the time... I really like it, it's the best pee I have all day! I often consider that I could do this if I *wasn't* in the shower, but have yet to give it a "dry run" lol

Also, would this wash work on the keeper? I know they are different materials (rubber vs. silicone, I believe)

I knew about the peeing standing up bit! I can actually do it. It's really useful in gross public washrooms.

So you can do it through the hole of your jeans? Where did you learn? I met a guy who teaches a class, but I was like, "I don't need no stinkin' class!" and taught myself. lol Now THAT'S liberating! ha ha ha

Yeah I pee standing up in the shower, I keep thinking I'll teach myself to pee standing up normally but I'm just too lazy... :P

1. I use hot water and maybe a bit of regular soap, and it works very well. But sounds nice, except that the "natural" bit of it makes the chemistry geek in me roll its eyes :P

2. I prefer sitting down, actually, strange as I am. Plenty of boys do, too :P

hmm... I guess I miss how peeing standing up is liberating. I definitely don't feel like peeing sitting down is somehow demeaning or that standing up to pee is something to aspire to.
Alisoncheesyfeetlick on October 4th, 2007 07:53 pm (UTC)
Maybe it's liberating because it's options. And it's probably easier to pee standing up when you're in the woods or on the side of the road. I cannot do it, but it would be cool if I could learn to aim.

I have peed standing up. I really don't care either way, though. My husband also sits or stands, it doesn't really matter. :)

I don't like spending so much money on the Diva wash. It seems like of wasteful to me. I use my face wash (cetaphil) so it gets two uses as well. :)
Alisoncheesyfeetlick on October 4th, 2007 07:55 pm (UTC)
I splurged on the Diva wash, and the bottle is going to last me a long time, as I only use a small amount each time. I bought it because I was confused at the time as to what would be safe to use on the cup, but it's probably a multitude of things that can wash it effectively.

I've never quite gotten the hang of peeing while standing- if I weren't in the shower it would be an awful mess! I should give learning it another try though, since public bathrooms can be really disgusting and I seem to be running into a lot of them lately.
Melissaprincessy on October 4th, 2007 08:34 pm (UTC)
Yep, the Diva Wash isn't new, as when I bought my cup last August, I purchased the wash at the same time from It smells really good, too. :)

Well, so there's peeing standing up where I'm facing the stall door of the bathroom (in a public restroom)--in other words I'm squatting, cos I don't want to sit down on the seat--but do you mean *facing* the toilet, like a penis-being? And if so how do I do that in jeans? More info please! :o)
aura_leeaura_lee on October 5th, 2007 12:52 am (UTC)
Hello! :) Yes, I mean facing the toilet like a penis being! lol Cute :) Here's the site I got it off of. Seriously, it's the best thing ever for quick pees. (Or it will be once I practice more and can do it through the hole in my jeans.) I can totally use a urinal now!

I got some of those Travelmate thingies so I can pee standing up if needs be. I haven't really practiced enough though and would rather squat than risk accidently peeing down my leg. I really should practice more.
aura_leeaura_lee on October 5th, 2007 09:51 am (UTC)
What's Travelmate? Is it one of those things that you attach? I am talking about peeing standing up with no attachments. Totally au natural! :)

Sandra M.silne on October 5th, 2007 04:53 am (UTC)

Weirdest topic ever. XD I usually pee sitting down. I often pee in the shower while standing, but that's about it. I'm not too great with the aiming, so I can easily imagine being in a public stall and hitting my skirt or panties instead of the toilet. It would be an interesting skill to learn, but not too neccessary for me. My school is fantastic about keeping the toilets in good shape.
