The pStyle is a plastic device that allows women, non-binary folks, and trans men to pee standing up without undressing. It is a simple design that works exceptionally well. Because it is made of rigid plastic, the pStyle is easily maneuvered through clothing and properly positioned. The rounded back edge is used to wipe with so there are no drips! The pStyle can be cleaned with soap and water, wet wipes, or shaken vigorously and washed at the next convenient time. It is also dishwasher safe.
This pStyle is made in partnership with Oceanworks® out of recycled ocean plastic recovered from fishing nets, trawls, and ropes. Discarded fishing gear is the most deadly form of ocean plastic to marine life. It takes around 600 years to decompose and makes up about 10% of ocean plastic pollution.

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!
Ready to beat cold weather, bulky clothing and unpleasant bathrooms? The pStyle is your new adventure accessory:
- Outdoor activities - camping, back packing, gardening, skiing, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing
- Work - military, police, ranching, landscaping, construction
- Travel and public events - music festivals, road trips, porta-potties, any place with limited or unsavory public toilets
- Physical reasons - sprained or broken bones, hip surgery, pregnancy, knee problems, trans men, FTM
Maneuver the pStyle through your clothing and place it so the widest part is centered under your urethra. Check to be sure clothing is not inside the cup of the pStyle. Tilt the open end down, relax, and pee. After you finish peeing, wait a moment, then pull the pStyle slowly forward with a firm upward pressure to remove the remaining drops.
Shake vigorously or rinse with water and store in a secure place. If water is not available, wash your pStyle at the next convenient time or carry sanitary wipes. The pStyle is dishwasher safe.
Most users have success the first time they try the pStyle. For some it takes a little practice. You can perfect your technique in the shower.
Can people with physical issues or wheelchairs use the pStyle?
Many people with injuries or physical issues have great success with the pStyle. If you are on crutches, can’t sit on a public toilet after a hip replacement, or just have a hard time getting up and down due to painful knees it will be very useful.
We have heard positive reports from people who can’t use public restrooms due to chemical sensitivity or phobias and people with a frequent need to urinate due to pregnancy or illness.
People who use wheelchairs have varied success. You need to be able to get to the front of the chair and get the pStyle under your body in order for it to work.
How do I avoid getting splatter on my shoes / splashback in a toilet.
Take a wide stance. Avoid peeing onto a hard surface such as asphalt or compacted dirt. Aim for a vertical surface. Aim onto a surface that is lower than your shoes.
In a toilet, alter the angle of your pee stream so that it hits the wall of the toilet/urinal at a gradual angle; the closer to 90 degrees, the worse the splashback will be. You can also lay down a piece of toilet paper and aim for that.
Check out this video on the fluid dynamics of splashback for more info.
Can I use the pStyle in a car?
Never drive and pStyle at the same time. Determined passengers may be able to pull it off. Best practice is to find a safe place to pull over and use the pStyle while the vehicle is not in motion.
I’m having trouble using the pStyle. What should I do?
First re-read the instructions. You may not be placing the pStyle far back enough. The ideal spot for the back end is just forward of the perineum. Make sure you are tilting it downward and not tipping it to the side. Check to see that clothing is not inside the cup.
Who uses the pStyle?
While women are the primary users they are not the only ones who benefit. Everyone wins when someone close to them has an easier time peeing. Trans men (FTM) might use one or both products. Cis gendered men might use a pStyle if they have a medical condition that interferes with their ability to stand up and pee.
Can children use the pStyle?
We have had reports of successful pStyle use from parents of children as young as three. Practice in the shower is recommended.
