Chicago Native Debuts "Peeing Accessory" For Women

Hey ladies—are you looking to stand up to dirty toilet seats and bathrooms? Well, urine luck.

A young entrepreneur who has dubbed herself “Queen Pee” is rolling out a new bathroom accessory to help women pee standing up.

With summer festival season underway and Lollapalooza on the horizon, Chicago-native Sara Grossman hopes her newly launched “peeing accessory” dubbed Stand Up can ease the sanitary concerns for women using public bathrooms.

“When encountering a less-than desirable peeing locale, many women opt to squat, which isn’t easy! We can feel off-balance, like we’re about to fall through the stall door, or maybe like we’re modern-arting a one of a kind pee-splatter-painting for the next unlucky hopeful sitter,” Grossman said. “There’s just no winning when it comes to squat-peeing, which is why I invented the Stand Up; I believe women can have a hygienic and dignified peeing experience if they so choose.”

Launched this year, Stand Up is a triangular-shaped disposable and biodegradable peeing accessory, Grossman said. It is made of neon pink, gloss-finished cardstock that allows liquids to easily slide off.

Grossman said the accessory can help women keep their distance from messy toilet seats and hopes her handy creation can assist Lolla ladies, because “nothing compares to the nastiness of a public toilet at a summer outdoor music festival.”

Grossman's disposable design isn't the only bathroom accessory that helps women pee standing up. Similar concepts have been released, such as the female urination device known as Go Girl, which acts as a reusable funnel to direct urine away from your feet.

Stand Ups are available in three “packs” ranging from $6 to $30 and can be purchased online at www.the-stand-up.com.

NOTE: Lolla fans hoping to get their packs in time for the fest will need to order by July 28.
