GoGirl Story #64: Comedian Gives GoGirl to Female TV Producers


We're excited to continue our GoGirl Story Series!  We're calling all you lovely ladies to share your GoGirl stories with us: times when you needed us, thought of us, or used us.  Email your GoGirl Story to info@go-girl.com.  We will post a new story each week. Today Trish Nelson from New York shares her GoGirl story:


Hi Sarah!

My name is Trish Nelson, and I recently bought several GoGirls at Babeland in NYC. The reason that I bought these little gems was because I'm a comedienne/actress here in New York and I was on one of my final callbacks for this amazing internet channel called "My Damn Channel." I wanted to give the GoGirls out as gifts to all of the female producers because, well... they're creating this new show, and as we all know, when you are in the processes of working 19 hours a day developing a program.... you just don't have time to sit down.

They LOVED them! And, the best news of all is that I am now working along side their team creating a show of my very own for their channel!!! WTF?!??! I seriously think that GoGirl had A LOT to do with me getting in close with them. I basically bribed them with your product. I will definitely find ways to use my GoGirl on my new program - I will find a way to plug the hell out of it!

Also, the lady I spoke with at GoGirl Customer Service that night was so helpful. I believe her name was... Elizabeth? That's probably wrong... maybe it started with an "M"? Margret? At any rate, she saved me about $80 bucks because I was trying to overnight the product from your online store so that I could use them in my audition the next day. She let me know that you had your product in stores all over NYC and kindly refunded my purchase from the internet making is so that I could go out and pick them up that same night right down the street from my house! Seriously wonderful to know that there are still companies out there that truly care about their customers! I will definitely be returning the favor! Thanks again!

Always,
Trish Nelson

P.S. I know that the girls at "My Damn Channel" do, in fact, love your product because one of them just wrote me telling me about her experience with hers!

GoGirl Story #63: On the rigs with a crew of men

Today Jolly Rogers from Texas shares her GoGirl story:


Hi Sarah,

I work on the rigs on a crew of men. I have for the last 15 years, and the bathroom situation is... less than to be desired. We were drilling up by Fort Mac in Alberta and I went to the outdoor store there to pick up some warmer clothing when I came across your product. It sounds silly that that little chunk of silicone could be a life-changer but it totally is! No more yoga-like poses balancing over the disgusting rig porta-potty, no more stripping out of my coveralls and 3 layers of pants to hang my butt out in -50C temperatures no more 20 minute pee breaks that makes the guys make fun of me but it takes a lot of freakin time to get that many layers of clothes off to just go to the bathroom. I just ordered some more so I can keep one in my truck, rigbag and locker. I love working in the oilpatch, love my crew and you have managed to put me on more equal turf! And yes, we can ALL write our names in the snow now, together as a crew :)

BJ Bjarnason


BJ,

Thanks so much for sharing your story! I'm so glad to hear that GoGirl has made things easier for you with the all-male-but-you crew on the oilpatch!

Today Margaret shares her GoGirl story:


Hi Sarah,

I received your product in my stocking for Christmas and it has definitely made an impression on a lot of people. I am an obstacle racer and endurance athlete and write a daily blog about my training, racing and such. I was on the podcast for Spartan Radio last night and much of the conversation turned into talk of your product as it definitely is a conversation piece as I had never seen your product before.

Your present was definitely one of my more interesting presents I received this year and it became a big part of my blog post for today. I am actually looking forward to having your product with me for some of my training in the future. It is really a product I only see using out in the wilderness or camping or such. I spend a lot of time on trails training and just wanted to say thanks for making my Christmas a little more interesting, I also received a Kindle, Axe, and Bodyglide as other highlighted gifts. Look forward to trying your product out on my next 20+ miler in the woods. I can then do a full gear review on it but for now its back in the tub waiting for an adventure.

Margaret



Hi Margaret,

Thanks so much for sharing your story. So glad to hear GoGirl has come in handy for you out on the trail and also that it helped to make your Christmas a little more interesting! I look forward to reading your full product review when it's up on your blog.

Sarah

GoGirl Story #62:Travel's a breeze (especially overseas) - GoGirl's sure to bring ease to knees

Today Donna Huang shares her GoGirl story:


Hi, GoGirls!

I just came back from a three-week trip to China. One of the things holding me back from visiting my husband's birthplace were the infamous toilets. They are holes in the ground that you squat over. I have a knee problem that prevents me from squatting so I've never been able to do that. On our previous trips, I've had to stay near the nicest hotel in the area so I can run back to use the sitties or just dehydrate myself and avoid going altogether. When I saw the GoGirl online, I immediately bought it and practiced for the trip. I am so thankful for your product because it made my trip so much more enjoyable. I can't really express the anxiety of constantly worrying about the toilets and the freedom that the GoGirl brought by allowing me to use any bathroom available.

Thank you!
Donna

Sarah,

I LOVE YOUR PRODUCT!!! My family consists of all males except for myself, and we hike, bike and kayak on a regular basis. Now, we don't have to worry about where the nearest gas station is or how long we can travel, whether it be by bike, kayak or ankle express, before a restroom is being sought out. I have bought one after two years of knowing about your product, and I wish I had done it sooner.

I will recommend GoGirl to all active females I know.

Thanks,
Karen


Hi Karen,

Thanks so much for your email. GoGirl is certainly handy when traveling with a group (hiking/biking/kayaking) and you're the only woman so I'm so glad to hear you've discovered us and are happy with the product. Thanks also for passing the "GoGirl word" onto other active females!

Hi Sarah,

My GoGirl just arrived in the mail this afternoon (right as we were coming home from a camping trip. Bummer!). GoGirl is so easy, I used it right the first time. And my four-year-old daughter is happy she can go like her brother now :) We both can't wait to use it out in the wilderness.

Thanks for this unique, awesome product!!

Jocelyn



Hi Jocelyn,

Thank you so much for your email and I'm glad to hear that you love your GoGirl! And as a mother of both a son and daughter, I can understand how important leveling the playing field can be!

Always love to hear that your first time using it was a success! Might be a good idea to have your daughter practice a time or two in the shower before taking the show on the road. :)

Thanks again and happy holidays!

Wow!!! This worked great... In the summer when we are out fishing it is pretty easy to "go" because you can get in the water. Went fishing this past weekend and that was not an option though. The water was 60 degrees - burrrrrrr! GoGirl was fabulous.

Thanks so much!!!

Thank you for sharing your story! I'm so glad to hear that GoGirl came in handy on your fishing trip and you didn't have to get in that freezing cold water!

Dear Sarah,

I want to tell you how much I love this little thing! I just got back from a two-week tent camping trip out west. It was in the 40's and 50's at night... I used GoGirl and was able to pee in a plastic bottle and empty it in the bathroom in the morning which was SO much better than walking across the campground to the bathrooms in the middle of the night. Thank you for this wonderful invention. Oh BTW, I was camping alone.

Sincerely,
Sandra



Hi Sandra,

Thank you for sharing your story. I'm so glad to hear that GoGirl came in handy for you on the cold nights of your camping trip!

Hi Sarah,

I bought my GoGirl a year ago after reading about the product in the travel section of the SF Chronicle, but hadn't had an opportunity to use it... until today. I was kayaking with my husband in a remote section of Clear Lake and after 3 hours and a couple of bottles of water, couldn't hold it any longer! We pulled in to a clearing and I used my GoGirl. I was so excited - it worked GREAT!!! No pee running down my legs and no squatting. My husband was impressed! Now, I'll never leave home without it!

Hi Sarah,

I did it the first time and no dribbles! Very proud of this... although it's probably due to your intuitive design. Been telling (or probably annoying) my friends about this product for about a year now but after a long, 2-day road trip a few weeks ago I realized the time is now to get this. Camping again next weekend - no more "too much beer" fear or reststop nightmares for me! I also shared a (less personal) testimonial on your Facebook page:


Avant Garland Fixx posted to GoGirl:

Just got my GoGirl and I can't wait to go camping next weekend. Not only will it help with my camping experience, scary rest stops will now be conquered. I have a back injury that makes it difficult to "hover" so this could really change my life. No more holding it! 
 

THANK YOU!
Garland




Hi Garland,

Thanks so much for your positive feedback and also for the Facebook Post! It's great to hear GoGirl is already making your camping and road-trips more enjoyable and you're able to say goodbye to that "too much beer" fear!

GoGirl Story #54 GoGirl for new home away from home

Today LuLu Lane shares her GoGirl Story:  

Dear Sarah,

Let me just say, wow... Your hospitality makes me miss home so much more. Before doing this tour, my husband was away doing a tour in Iraq. I was pregnant with our third child and had two children to take care of alone, with some help from in-laws. Then we got the news that we were being relocated when he returned to the USA. We had three months after my daughter was born to pack out. I have never lived outside the USA before so I had mixed feelings. The first thing I thought of is how nice it would be see other parts of the world and to be in Austria. But believe it or not, it's been very difficult -- it's not the pretty picture that one thinks of; life outside of the USA is very different. Yes, the country itself is beautiful with a lot of opportunities, and though some peoople are nice, many of them are not. It's not a kid friendly environment -- in fact, they seem to prefer dogs to children! So imagine us, with no experience living anywhere else other than the US, not being able to speak German, in a place where children are just tolerated (I have 3 children). Everything is so inconvenient here and space seems to be an issue (apparently our minivan is huge). So when I talk to people like you Sarah, it reminds me how much I appreciate the comforts and conveniences of life back in the U.S. I looked up your product trying to find some way to make life here easier for my nine year old daughter. Since I've never gone camping, I had no clue how to teach her how to go to the bathroom in a hole in the ground of the restroom in the park and the church, but this type of bathroom is quite common in Europe and in many other countries. So again, thank you for sending GoGirl to us, we are so very grateful!!!

Sincerely,

Lulu Lane



Hi LuLu,

Thank you for sharing your story! I'm sure it's both exciting AND intimidating to pick up and relocate across the world as you've done. I'm glad to hear that GoGirl has helped you and your daughter!

Kind regards,

Sarah

story:

Hi Sarah!

I have previously heard of GoGirl via some friends on Facebook, but I was pleasantly surprised this past weekend at my sister's wedding. We were in the back of church waiting for the guests to settle and for the grand entrance. Making jokes and small talk, she pulled out the tube from somewhere in her dress. "Check it out" she says. Wow! what a fabulous idea!!! The photographer snapped a few photos and off we went. I was wondering why this was not in production back when I got married? It would have made the awkwardness of using a stall in the huge bridal gown with all the layers of skirting just disappear. My sister was pleased with the results and bathroom time was quick - a new GoGirl pro is hooked!

Thanks GoGirl for the wedding memories and product ingenuity! I see some new marketing opportunities in your future!!!

-Erin Horton (sister of the bride)




Erin,

Thanks so much for sharing your story. We're delighted to hear the GoGirl came in handy for the bride on her wedding day!

Today Sharlene shares her GoGirl Story:  

Hi Sarah,

Someone told me about GoGirl and I thought it was a joke. I found your site and purchased three GoGirls as gag gifts. Curiosity got the best of me and I tried one after they arrived. I am not a small person so I expected to have to clean up after I tried it. To my surprise, it worked great! There was a slight learning curve and I had to watch the video a few times to figure out how to fold it.

I tucked it away in a drawer and forgot about it until our toilet when on the fritz. The repair man could not come out to fix it until the next day. The GoGirl was very useful considering there was two feet of snow on the ground. I used it then tucked it back in the drawer thinking I got my money's worth from the little gadget. I didn't think I would use it again but I had knee surgery a few months ago and found getting on and off the toilet near impossible with my leg immobilizer on. It was a life-saver in public restrooms after my knee surgery as it was impossible for me to "hover."

Now the GoGirl is not tucked into a drawer. It is in my purse. It was the best $10 I have spent. I plan to purchase more as gifts for family. I wanted to thank you for bringing GoGirl to the market. I love it!

-Sharlene




Sharlene,

Thanks so much for sharing your story! We're so glad to hear GoGirl came in handy while your bathroom was on the fritz and also after your surgery!

So, here's my GOGIRL story... I bought a set of three, practiced couple of times, went snowmobiling for the day (perfect trial run for GoGirl) and I was so thankful that I didn't have to leave the trail to go to the bathroom (waist deep in snow it's hard to get snowsuit down, and out of the way, and that just the beginning). Had a great day! My husband thinks it' hilarious, plus he doesn't have to hear me grumble (snow in winter, bugs and prickly things in summer lol). Shortly afterwards, my Daughter took one home with her, that leaves me with two, so I ordered a case... Christmas is coming :)

Hi Sarah and folks at GoGirl,

I received my GoGirl order within 3 days! Wow, I was impressed at how quickly I received them and am happy that I'll have it for my vacation! Thank you for shipping them so fast!! And I've already discovered that GoGirl is easy to use! I love it and with my physical limitations, I think it will make things a little easier, if you know what I mean! I used another product (looking similar to a kazoo) and Go Girl is 100% more capable! Thanks for a great product. I'll be recommending GoGirl to my friends, especially those who camp and hike and also to my friends who have muscular dystrophy!

Best Regards,

Hi Sarah,

We recently went to China to adopt our son. China is not known for it's elegant bathrooms, instead, they use a porcelain hole in the floor that you squat over. I knew this would be difficult for my 6yr old so we took our GoGirl along. We carried it everywhere with us (along with extra toilet paper) and used it at restaurants, shopping malls and the museum. My 6yr old got quite good at using it and would not go to the public bathrooms in China without it. Thank you GoGirl for giving us one less thing to worry about!

Just wanted to say that my field test with Go-Girl today proved to be quite successful! My husband and I climbed a multi-pitch climb and I was able to use GoGirl several times throughout the day: hiking in, at the base of our climb, and even at the start of the 4th pitch. The handy storage tube made it easy to carry in my pocket, and it was so nice to be able to take a potty break at a belay station without any adjustments to my harness. Thank you again for such a clever, innovative product!

Today Shara Hamshar from Oaklahoma shares her GoGirl Story:  .

Hi Sarah!

My daughter is 8 and loves GoGirl. She insists on using it at home since we received your product today. I purchased one for her and one for myself for our weekend camping adventures. Our vintage camper is not outfitted with a bathroom so we've been bagging up the urine when we use our portable camp toilet. I've been telling all the women I know about it. I'm getting a ton of feedback on Facebook from my girlfriends and I think there should be a toddler-sized product available for those who are working on potty training. Babies get used to peeing standing up in their diapers and there can be a big fear of sitting on public toilets with icky germs. My child never goes in public restrooms because of potty germs and this will make our roadtrips much easier. I have a feeling some mothers would have improved success with their daughters who don't want to sit to pee.
-Shara



Hello Shara,

Thank you so much for your email. I always appreciate any input or suggestions from our customers. I'm so happy to hear that you and your daughter love the GoGirl (whether used at home or not). :) Eventually, we will have smaller sizes for the smaller hands of toddlers. We are a young company but do plan on adding variations of the product, along with accessories that will compliment GoGirl, such as a collection device. These are things that we are working on. Be sure to check back with us from time to time to see product updates.

Thanks again for your interest in GoGirl, and taking the time to write!

Hi Sarah,

I just received the GoGirl, and I only wish I had found it sooner! My guy and I go sailing, and I have been envious this past year of the men who easily pee off the back of the boat. For females in the crew, we would bring a little porta-potty, and if that was left behind, sometimes I would go below deck and relieve myself into a cup. The GoGirl makes life easier and frees us of the need to squat while urinating. I love it! Thank you for inventing it. It's brilliant. I plan to keep it with me for future boating, camping, and other outdoor sporting.

Cheers,
Linda

Hi Sarah,

I just wanted to say how much I love the GoGirl. I am a member of a search and rescue team in the Mojave Desert. I have been on two major searches, and I can not tell you how much anxiety a woman has when she is worried about trying to find a bush that covers enough, having your all male group see you, another team coming up behind you over the hill, and even worrying about the circling helicopters seeing you! The other women on my team have GoGirls as well, since we also do technical work in harnesses, allowing us to have the freedom to not take off layers of clothing and equipment. Thank you for your excellent product!

Thanks so much for sharing your story. Glad to hear that GoGirl came to the rescue for the ladies in your search and rescue team!

My husband's truck was recently stolen. That's right-STOLEN! Thankfully, it was found a week later, and amazingly the thief left our blank checkbooks, ammunition, and thousands of dollars' worth of packpacks and outdoor gear that was in the truck.

However, along with my husband's dog tags and wedding ring that were hanging on the rearview mirror, they took a GoGirl out of the glove box! Are you serious? I guess the thief must have really needed it. As all of us know, when you gotta go, you gotta go!

-Heather

Thanks so much for sharing your story, Heather. Sorry to hear about the break-in. I can't believe they took the GoGirl and left the checkbooks and expensive gear! I suppose desperate times call for desperate measures -- your thief must really have had to go!

Today Nikki shares her GoGirl Story:  

Hi Sarah,

I am a city girl. My idea of camping, before I met my husband, was a pop-up trailer at a nice little campground. My husband's idea of camping? Pitching a tent far enough away from civilization that you maybe see one person the entire time you're out there. So when he said we were going on a camping/fishing trip for our summer vacation I was a little worried. And even my imagination didn't compare to what I was actually in for...

We drove up a winding dirt road into the mountains of Wyoming, nowhere near the preferred camping areas of Wyoming. We drove past some nice little spots that even had a little out house but that wasn't where we were going, so we kept driving. More dirt roads and finally we turned from the dirt road onto another dirt road. But this road was not much of a road... We drove through the creek and then into the woods. Once into the woods the path we drove on was littered with boulders and fallen limbs. We bounced so much the truck complained! Finally, we stopped and pitched our tent. Have I mentioned that during this lovely summer vacation I was eight months pregnant?! So let's rewind to about two days before our trip.

Knowing that we were going to be miles from the nearest toilet and that we were going to be in bear country, my mind started racing. I needed -- a litter box? I wasn't about to go outside in the middle of the night to pee. And that thought then made me realize I wasn't going to be able to pee at all because squatting was not an option in my condition! I was really beginning to worry about this. I had to pee every hour or less and I couldn't balance enough to gracefully sit in a chair, let alone squat to pee. And that is when my husband found the GoGirl! I think he was mostly joking when he found it and sent me the website link but I jumped at it. We bought one on our way through the big city and I was so relieved (that I was going to be able to be relieved!)

We got a big water jug and emptied it into our water bottles. The big water jug sat beside my bedroll in the tent so that I didn't have to leave the safety of the tent in the middle of the night. What made the whole thing more awesome was that because of my size I had to buy large men's overalls to wear and they had a front zipper! So not only did I not have to squat or leave the tent at night, I didn't have to drop my drawers to give the mosquitoes new skin to bite! Of course, everyone wanted to hear the stories of my pregnant camping adventures and they all were told about the GoGirl.

I'm hooked! That thing will be with me on all my camping adventures from now on. Now I request you make a smaller size, so that my baby girl can have one when she's out of diapers! Thank you,
Nikki


Thanks so much for sharing your story, Nikki. We're glad to hear GoGirl came in handy on your camping adventures!

Today Gabi, from Duluth, MN shares her GoGirl Story:  

Hi Sarah,

My name is Gabi Gesch. I did my senior case analysis on the Go-Girl the past year. I met with your husband and a few of the people working on the GG campaign and thought that you might enjoy these pictures. I ran the Grandmas marathon in Duluth this summer and saw the Go-Girl booth and stopped by. I ended up buying a tank top and wearing it on the day of the race. Everyone was yelling "Go Girl" as I ran the course. I've been meaning to send the pictures to you for a while so I hope you enjoy them.

Sincerely,
Gabi Gesch


Thanks so much for sharing your story, Gabi! It's so great whenever we see people out there wearing GoGirl gear! Thanks for the photos.

GoGirl Story 41: GoGirl at La Carrera Panamericana

Today Kristin, from Evergreen, CO shares her GoGirl Story:  

Hi Sarah,

You guys are so cool! I just purchased a GoGirl and am anxiously awaiting its arrival as I leave on my journey in a few days.

For the 5th year in a row I'll be traveling to the southern reaches of Mexico to participate in La Carrera Panamericana, a vintage car race covering 2,000 miles of roads over 7 days of high speed racing in vintage race cars. La Carrera was originally run from 1950 - 1954 to announce the opening of the Panamerican Highway running from Guatemala to Texas. It was revived in 1987 and continues to be the legend that it was in the 1950s and widely known as the toughest road race in the world.

I'm a GoGirl now....so I thought I would send you this preview and then possibly send you my story when I return in early November. There some amazing women who race, navigate or crew La Carrera and I can tell you that the opportunities to stop and pee, let alone pull down your one piece firesuit, are few and far between! Women race car drivers will love the GoGirl!

I live in Evergreen, CO but two weeks ago I married a man born, raised and still living in Mound, MN, so I was excited to see you are from Minnetonka. We met while racing at La Carrera in Mexico. I was with my dad racing in a 1952 Ford Victoria and Todd builds and races 1965 - 1968 Mustangs right there in Mound. We were featured in a 100-minute Discovery HD Channel documentary called GT Racer - they followed us during the entire race in 2008 and we won 1st and 3rd in class.

I'm stoked about my GoGirl and hope it gets here on time. And maybe later you can send us some stickers and/or become a sponsor of our Mustangs To Go Racing Team. Would love to see a macho race car all stickered up in pink GoGirl stickers! :)

Be well,

Kristin Stewart


Thanks so much for sharing your story, Kristin! We're glad to hear you thought of us for La Carrera Panamericana.

GoGirl Story 40: GoGirl and the Cowgirl

We're excited to continue our GoGirl Story Series.  We're calling all you lovely ladies to share your GoGirl stories with us: times when you needed us, thought of us, or used us.  Email us at info@go-girl.com to participate.  We will post a new story each week.

Today Paula from Kerriville, TX shares her GoGirl Story:  

Hello!

I received an email this morning from my SON with a link to the Go-Girl website, including a note saying, "this looks like something you'd say, 'I wish I would have thought of that' about!" Of course, I clicked on the link right away and had a nice laugh at his "confidence" in me, as well as the fact that this cute little pink spigot was a GREAT idea!

I actually have a homemade version of a FUD made from some rather unforgiving plastic, based on a pattern I'd seen at an aunt's house. I must admit, however, that I have not tried my little purple spout for fear of the discomfort it might cause. And why would I need one of these in the first place?

Every spring and fall for the past 3 years, I head out to deep West Texas to participate in an honest-to-goodness round up. Being in the saddle all day out amongst 80,000 acres does require a cowgirl to think of creative ways to relieve herself in those conditions! Not to mention, trying to squat and not get stuck by a cactus, thorns, or worse while juggling the jeans, chaps, boots, and spurs can be a daunting challenge! Yes, there is a fair amount of cowboy tinkle envy goin' on with the few cowgirls who participate in these! But even under those conditions, I still have not brought myself to try out my handcrafted funnel.

After seeing the Go Girl, I do believe I will be sporting one for the next round up! This looks exactly like what we gals need out there on the range, and I love the way it comes packaged. A perfect fit for the already over-loaded saddle pack, indeed! It might also just find itself as a the next birthday gift for the friend of mine who's gone out for several of the round ups. Hmmmm.... wonder how some leather fringe would look attached to the rim of the Go Girl? ;-)

I've also wished I'd have had a GoGirl when I was training for marathons. Again... tinkle envy as my husband could easily step off the road, take care of business, then wait for me to emerge from some hidden spot while I irritatedly yanked the flora from my running shorts.

I also occasionally go out fishing in the Gulf of Mexico in a small boat...usually with males only...and now I, too, can STAND at the edge of the boat and water the fishes. Yes!!!

So...thank you for this wonderful, it's-about-time product, ladies of Go-Girl! I will report back to you after the spring round up! (assuming I get to go....got bucked off a runaway horse at the fall round up a week ago...nursing a broken rib and some nasty ol' bruising...yee haw!)

Happy Trails!

Today Dru shares her GoGirl Story:  

My go-girl went backpacking with me on the Teton Crest Trail in Grand Teton National Park recently. OMG! Go-girl is beyond wonderful! Before I was even out in the backcountry, I used it on the flight out in the teeny-tiny airplane restroom.

No more having to hike far off the trail, so I can "drop my drawers", I can just duck behind a tree like the boys do! I didn't even have to take my pack off, I just loosened the hip belt and unzipped my pants. And no more freezing bum if I have to pee in the middle of the night and the temperature is in the 40's. I can't wait to try it when I cross-country ski this winter...think I 'll try writing my name in the snow! lol

Thanks again for such a wonderful product!

Today Patricia shares her GoGirl Story:  

I was so thrilled to spend my first experience abroad volunteering in schools in Peru. As a teacher, I was prepared with my GoGirl when I heard that toliet situations were not so friendly. I was so happy I bought it. I used in on the Incan Trail, at my home stay in Ccaccaccollo, as well as some restaurants in the city. By the end of the trip I had about five of the women I was traveling with saying that they were going to buy one for their next trip. I would not leave home (or the country) without one!! Thanks for such an amazing product.

Here are a few photos of myself at the local village with their not-so-Western toliet.

Today Susan, from Hayward, CA shares her GoGirl Story:  

I have been in the military for nearly 12 years and have been in many situations when I've needed to go to the bathroom. Training in the woods or out on missions, there aren't available restrooms for a woman to use. I've learned to urinate early on with out shame in front of my male counterparts, but its never a comfortable feeling having to moon them. I'm sure they didn't mind and enjoyed getting their laughs out of it. I stumbled upon this while looking for travel johns for my next training event. I've known that FUDs existed, but none that was small and compact like your product. I just ordered the camo three pack and am excited to get it. No more holding my urine on long trips or rationing my fluid intake. AND...no more ass shots for the boys!!! Thank you GoGirl for making what looks to be a very convenient product. I can't wait get mine and use it.

Today Gwynne, from Huntsville, AL shares her GoGirl Story:  

While I was in Turkey, we went on a trip to a place called Olu Deniz, which translates to "Blue Water" that was simply gorgeous! However, unlike the rest of the tourist places we had visited up to this point, this one didn't have standard toilets. Instead, it had these little spots on the floor where you're supposed to SQUAT! Believe me, even when you really really have to go, it's a heck of a challenge to do this without falling into the silly thing. Needless to say, I was very glad to get back into that seawater afterwards, and extremely grateful I hadn't needed to stay there any longer than necessary. Can't imagine anyone with knee or back issues getting up from that floor potty without having to get pretty nasty or hurt. Your devices would have been an absolute Godsend in this place! I've given one to my mother and sisters, and now keep one in my hiking bag and one in my glovebox. Thank you for this WONDERFUL product!

-Gwynne


Thanks so much for sharing your story, Gwynne! It sounds like you'll be packing your GoGirl the next time you you take an overseas trip!

Today Tressie, from Belton, MO shares her GoGirl Story:  

I was recently volunteered by my nine-year-old son to become a leader for his den. It was a difficult decision to make being a single mom with three special needs kids, but he really wanted me to so I gave in to his puppy dog eyes, of course! His den just went to camp and being a new leader I didn't have to join the camping group. However, the guys of the troop keep razzing me about going to camp next year so I decided to join them on parents night to see the camping facilities. It definately was NOT set up for female campers. There were no girls bathrooms so at night the girls just use the trees! The first thought that rolled through my mind was, "I A DEFINITELY BUYING A GO-GIRL BEFORE I GO CAMPING WITH THIS TROOP!"

Today Teresa Hannon shares her GoGirl Story:  

Girls, want to go to the Grand Canyon? This group of girls did, and their GoGirls were the first thing they packed! Since rafting trips require "bare bones" camping conditions, with little privacy for bathroom needs, the GoGirl device allowed them to go anywhere! As the ladies whitewater-rafted their way down 188 miles of the river, from Lee's Ferry to Whitmore WA, the GoGirl allowed the them to go anywhere - behind rafts, rocks, and bushes. Girls, wherever you travel, take your Go Girl with you!

The day that we took this picture we skied Red Cone Bowl and it was great!

I'm about to graduate as a wildlife biologist and I'll soon be headed out to the Grand Canyon to capture and tag endangered spotted owls. I'll be backpacking most days, and there probably won't be much to squat behind out there in all that orange sand. A friend of mine showed me your site awhile ago, and I've been contemplating buying a GoGirl ever since. I have decided to go ahead and do it. I've been telling everyone who asks about my new job about GoGirl, and the boys aren't ever freaked out about it like I thought they'd be. I can't wait to bring my new GoGirl on this next big adventure!

Just recently, a colleague told me about GoGirl... She was so excited about it --I just had to go out and get my own! I travel internationally as a volunteer with a non-profit organization, providing eyecare to the less fortunate. Often, the restrooms are but a hole in the ground and there are long bus trips for half days or more to reach remote areas. I was soooo excited to hear about GoGirl! I know this will be the BEST item ever for all of the girls on our clinic trips. As soon as I purchased mine (I actually purchased 3), I emailed the clinic managers and sent them pictures of the GoGirl! They are excited about the product too. We are always on the lookout for anything that will help us have a more safe, sanitary, and healthy experience as we provide the gift of sight. Thank you so much GoGirl!

Enjoy Heather's GoGirl Story:  

I was recently at a concert and of course having to use the restroom NEVER comes at a convenient time. I left my friends to use the restroom and arrived just in time to be number 463 in line to use the ladies room. As I was standing in line I realized that while there was a HUGE line for the ladies room, there was no wait for the mens room. Two girls were coming out of the mens room and joined me in line. I over heard them talking about how the cleverly tried using the men’s room but there were NO stalls only urinals. It suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks... I had a GoGirl my aunt had given me in my purse! I headed into the men’s room and used the go girl to go in the urinals!! I have never been SO excited and empowered. Upon exiting the 2 women were still in line and giggling. One said to me.."No stalls huh?" I replied...anything guys can do girls can do better. I don't take life sitting down" and giggled and said " see you in th concert". I told my 3 friends about my experience and they were shocked and amazed. I told them all about your product and they have since purchased one of their own. I haven't had to stand in a long restroom line since and all because of your product. THANK YOU SO MUCH

OK, I don't do safaris or polar expeditions; I don't do bouldering or scuba. I'm an old woman with trash knees and an intolerance of skeezy bathrooms. I live in a part of Texas where there are no trees, and like most old ladies, I have to pee all the dang time. GoGirl is absolutely one of the best products of any kind that I've ever had. Talk about empowering! I am no longer at the mercy of horrible restrooms, weak knees or treeless waste any more! These little thangs are GREAT!

I was camping in a rustic camper cabin at Lake Sakata State Park, MN. At 4:00am I had to go to the bathroom and there were no bathrooms in the rustic camper cabins. Everyone in the camper cabin was sleeping...and my dog was in her kennel outside the cabin. I didn't want to open the creaky doors and wake everyone in the cabin...including the dog. So, I thought about using my Go-Girl -- then I saw a empty beer bottle on the table inside the cabin. I grabbed my gogirl, donned it, and aimed it inside the empty beer bottle. It worked like a charm! I nearly filled the bottle and I had instant relief! Thanks to the GoGirl....I didn't wake anyone and I went back to bed! Life is good with the GoGirl!

We are so glad we can be there for you Charisse. A GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt is making its way to you as we speak.

Enjoy Genia's GoGirl Story:

For decades I have experienced envy whenever activities place me far away from conventional bathroom facilities, of the guys have no trouble answering nature's call; No tree to hide behind, no problem; No rock to squat behind, no problem; No shore nearby, no problem. A guy can simply turn his back and proceed to take care of business. Unfortunately, for us females, answering nature's call is not as simple. It can involve baring our bums to the cold, mosquitoes, poison ivy, curious eyes, and more.

Being the lone female in the group I hike/kayak/camp with, I am on my own to locate a suitable spot that provides at least a minimum amount of privacy. After locating a spot I am still faced with trying to balance myself while doing at least three things at once...maintaining a squat position (not infrequently on unlevel ground), holding my clothes out of the way, and trying to aim properly to avoid splash back onto shoes and socks -- trying to do all of this in the middle of the night is especially challenging!

On my last backpack trip as I headed across some rocks to answer nature's call during the night, the light from my headlamp revealed that I was not alone! There was a scorpion! I sure didn't feel like squatting in that vicinity. Inevitably there is some wet stuff that gets on me, my clothes, and shoes and socks. All the things I love to do (backpacking, cross-country skiing, climbing, kayaking, motorcycling remote back roads) come with the problem of answering nature's call.

One of my recent experiences was on a kayak trip. The leader pulled up to the shoreline to make adjustments on one of the kayaks. I figured that this would be my only opportunity that afternoon to be on dry land so I hopped out of my kayak to find a place to relieve myself. Not a tree or rock in sight, just level grassland as far as one could see. I announced to the group that I intended to answer nature's call and then requested that everyone turn to enjoy the water view until I returned from a short walk away from the group. One must be bold in this type of situation. I chose to face the group (with their backs to me) and have my exposed bum facing the other way. I felt slightly less exposed that way. After returning to the group I asked about a wood lean-to type of structure that I had noticed in the distance. One of the guys said, "Oh, that's probably a duck blind" What?! I immediately imagined a groups of guys with binoculars finding not birds, but some clueless lady unintentionally "mooning" them. What a laugh and a story that would provide them!

Over the years I have seen various FUD products introduced to the market. The first one I found was La Funnelle made of paper. It was a disposable product and did not have a designed extension that would have made it easier to pee away from where one is standing. That product had a learning curve before one could successfully aim the stream far enough away. Also, the throwaway nature of the product made it impractical for long backpacks because of the amount of extra trash one would accumulate after two or three weeks, which all has to be carried out. Later products entering the market were paper/cardboard or hard plastic, which had drawbacks. But now there is the GoGirl which combines good design with appropriate material. The silicone material makes it fit better to eliminate leaks and foldable for easier storage. I can see that I will have no trouble carrying GoGirl in the outer pocket of my daypack or backpack, or even in my rain jacket pocket. Hurray for GoGirl!


Hurray for you Genia, a GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt is findings its way to you now.

Our featured blogger this week is Sherry of Newark, Ohio. Sherry manages a blog called Diva B Dogs that focuses in dog grooming, breeding, training supplies, puppies and more. To visit Diva B Dogs go to http://www.divab-dogs.com/

Enjoy Sherry's GoGirl Story:

I received my GoGirl last week and just love it. I'm 41 years old and have had many knee surgeries, so my squatting days are over do to the simple fact that I can't get back up real comfortably. The first couple of times I used it outside, at night, at our vacation cottage. No problems at all, not even the first time. When traveling for dog shows I always used to hate having to use some of the rest stop toilets, so I'm excited about training my brain to be okay with standing and releasing in the toilet. I'm still working on it but I DID use it at a port-a-pot yesterday and thank God I had my GoGirl because the port-a-pot was quite nasty! I am so excited about the possibilities of GoGirl for camping and kayaking, which we do a lot of. Now I won't have to worry, or choose not go on a trip because of my knees and concerns about the bathroom issue. I can now enjoy these trips with my family and not be left behind! Thank you GoGirl! -Sherry Bartzen

Thank you so much for your kind words Sherry.  A GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt will be in the mail for you soon.

Enjoy Gaelyn's GoGirl Story:

I cant squat without peeing on my feet and have wanted one of these for years. So I finally ordered it. IT is a Female Urination Device (FUD), which comes in either pink or camouflage brown stored in a re-usable tube. No prejudice here.

This handy little GoGirl beauty is made from flexible medical grade silicone and is rinseable and reusable. I dont want to be a Man but have always envied their ability to pee almost anywhere without having to expose their entire lower half. I quite frequently hike wearing a mid-calf length skirt and often find myself with nowhere to hide. When traveling Ive seen too many icky, dirty toilets, sometimes with no seat, to crouch over while my legs cramp. And Ive made a few emergency side-of-the-road stops trying to hide in a ditch or hang cheeks over a fallen log. But no more. Because lifes greatest adventure shouldnt be finding a bathroom says GoGirl, and I agree.

This handy little FUD will be going with me to South Africa for the month of March. I can see where it may come in handy while on safari at Kruger National Park, hiking in the Drakenberg Mountains or anywhere out in the bush veldt.

Thanks for sharing your story Gaelyn! A GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt are on its way to you now.

My husband and I are beginning the process of remodeling our bathroom..... oh, did I tell you, we only have 1 bathroom!! He asked me if I had a plan for when the toilet is out of commission. Oh yes in deedy!! "I have my go-girl!", I proclaimed with great pride! He didn't want too many details. All I need is a bucket and my go-girl in the basement and we were good to go for the entire project.
Thanks so much go-girls!

Nothing worse than a bathroom remodel, we are glad we could be there with you. A GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt is on its way to you now.

Enjoy Jennifer GoGirl Story:

Dear Sarah,

I have to tell you I saw your product and I was just intruiged. I'm a proud user of a menstrual cup and like to think of myself as an open-minded female, but when I first saw your product, I have to tell you, I was not too sure about it. I just didn't see how I could actually use it. As a backpacker, who will be hiking the Applachain Trail this spring, I could see how it would be useful, but I was really very unsure of it. After doing a lot of reading online, I decided to give it a go. Not only did I get your product in record time, I got to use it in record time.


I FELT SO EMPOWERED! It was just amazing. I was just speechless at how awesome my Go-Girl actually is. I have no words for how excited I am about it (we call it "pee pal" around here). I absolutely love this thing and after just two nights, I feel like a pro. I can't wait to give it a try this weekend on a hiking trip, where I will be the only female, and not have to worry about squatting in the snow!


Thank you SO MUCH!!


Jennifer K.

Jennifer, we love love LOVE that we help you to feel empowered.  A GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt is on its way to you now.

GoGirl Story 21: Shelley and Hiking with Seniors

The GoGirls are very excited to continue to sharing our GoGirl Story Series.  We are calling for all you lovely ladies to share your GoGirl stories with us: times when you needed us, thought of us, or used us.  Email us at info@go-girl.com to participate.  We will post a new story each week or so and the person submitting will get a free GoGirl for sharing.

Enjoy Shelley's GoGirl Story:

Hello Sarah: I have been a Go-Girl for about 5 weeks now and can count on one hand the number of times I had to hover over a toilet seat since becoming a Go-Girl. I'm even past the idea of someone seeing my feet under the stall backwards in front of the toilet. Imagine what they must be thinking!!! Let them eat their hearts out.


My primary function for the "FUD" was for my hiking class. I am a student in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Furman University in Greenville, SC. My husband and I are both hikers and we take the hiking class 3 times a year @ OLLI. We hike with 25 to 30 senior citizens and when it is time for a potty break the women and men separate and wait for the all clear call. In early spring, summer and late fall bushes, leaves, bugs and whatever are a problem when we squat in the woods. In the winter, the bushes are bare and so are we in the cold.


The last time we hiked with our class in November, my husband and I were ahead of the group, so we went off by ourselves. He stopped at the side of the trail, but I decided to wait until the parking lot. Because there was a port-o-potty there. Not my favorite choice, but it was so cold and windy and a long ride home. On the way to the car I commended on the accessibility for men compared to women and said, "someone should invent something for us outdoor women". Not 4 days later I saw on my Yahoo Home Page a picture of Go-Girl as one of the most emailed pictures. I clicked on it and ordered 3 with 5 minutes.


My daughter and granddaughter were coming for Thanksgiving and we love to hike together. I'm very private about my Go-Girl activities, but when we are with close friends my husband asks. "Have you told the ladies about Go-Girl?" One friend ordered it right then and there. This term begins January 12th and I will be hiking on the 15th, weather permitting. I know everyone is going to ask "How did you do that?". I can't wait to enlighten them!


Shelley, A Go-Girl for Life

Thank you Shelley for being one of the GoGirls and helping to share the message with younger ladies.  A GoGirl and GoGirl t-shirt is on its way to you.

Enjoy Shanan's GoGirl Story:

I have to tell you, I could have really used a GoGirl this weekend!  My husband's family makes such a big deal about deer camp each year, and this year my husband asked me and our three young boys to tag along on the last day of the Nov. hunt.  A cousin's teenage daughter was the only other female with us in this hunting party of 15. 
Let us tell you something!  It's difficult to find any privacy when you have to go in a forest full of men!  
Guys can go behind the nearest tree, but we have to trudge to the nearest ravine or thicket and hope the guys can still see our orange vests and caps, but nothing else!!  I can see how a GoGirl could save a gal from being mistaken for a deer!
This "dear" can't wait to get her a GoGirl.  I will be telling the other huntress about them as well.
 
Keep up the great work!


Well Shanan hopefully next time we will be there to help you stand up around all those boys :) A GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt is on its way to you now.

Enjoy Betty's GoGirl Story and Photos:

Thank you for your quick response to my order back in September for our October trip to Greece.

I needed to use the product just one time, and that was on the Island of Crete. The restroom of the bakery/restaurant was modern and nicely decorated, but the toilets had no seats or lids. After i washed my hands I noticed several toilet seats under t
he wash counter neatly stacked. That one puzzled me. Maybe we were suppose to take our own seat into the stall??

These pictures were taken inside the ancient fortified city of Rhodes on the Island of Rhodes. The old walled cities is a World Heritage site and was build in the early 14th century by Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. Here the Knights cared for the sick and poor and protected the Christian pilgrims on route to the Crusades. It is also a former site of one of the Ancient Wonders of the World, Colossus. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 226 BC. I wore the GoGirl T-shirt all afternoon, but heard no comments.

Again Tahnk you for the quick responce. I give my leftover Euros to friends traveling to Europe. Now I can give them a GoGirl too.

Betty we were more than happy to fulfill a speedy request. especially if it means GoGirl gets to go to Greece. The pictures look beautiful. Enjoy the GoGirl and T-shirt that are on their way.

Enjoy Jamie's GoGirl Story:

I'm an avid skier and I love big mountain powder skiing. I also love the back woods and the out of bounds skiing. But when you're miles and miles from the resort itself, sometimes even farther, peeing is really really difficult. There have been times where I didn't even have a tree to squat behind. And when it's 10 degrees or colder, finding a tree to squat behind is the least of your worries. Even the 4 layers of clothes I'll have to squat around are less important than the prospective cold on my lady-bits.

I bought Go Girl on a whim to take on a camping trip last summer in the Colorado Rockies. It is by far, my favorite piece of camping gear that I have ever bought. I could go when I wanted, where I wanted, and I never had to worry about hold up the group (of mostly men) because I was just a fast as they were. No more jokes about the chicks on the camping trip! I can't wait to take Go Girl on my trip to Utah this winter! It has made my life life so much easier!


Jamie we love that you are so adventurous and that we get to be there to help make any adventure you are on a little bit easier for you.  Be on the lookout for a GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt in your mail box.

I'm so so very excited to have found the website.  I saw this featured on some TV thing a few months back and told my hubby, I've got to get one of those for the hunting.  We travel to other states to hunt as well as hunt here in MN.  Well, deer hunting has started and I need one NOW!! Taking off all my warm clothes to squat in the woods is not cool when you are deer hunting, in fact it is VERY cold!!! I can't wait to get it for the rest of the hunt season. I'm so excited about this I bought an extra and sending it to my adopted soldier in Afghanistan.  YEA for us girls!!!

Well Vicki we hope the GoGirl got there in time to help you on your hunt and so nice of you to share the GoGirl love with your adopted soldier. You Rock!  There is a GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt on its way to you now.

My husband Ron and I planned a backpacking trip through Yosemite with our friends Martin & Michelle.  I discovered the Go-Girl and thought it would be a great idea to bring with me.  Well, I was right!!!  I don't know how I lived without one of these before!
 
 I no longer have to worry about Ron sneaking up behind me with his camera while I'm squatting behind a tree with my hiking shorts down around my knees and my feet wide apart just hoping I don't pee on my hiking boots!!!  I can now just slip the Go-Girl under my shorts and underwear and pee.  I even spelled my name in the dirt!!!  Ha ha. I was always envious that my brother could do that and I couldn't.  Michelle was SO jealous when I showed her my Go-Girl on our backpacking trip.  I know what Michelle will be getting for Christmas.

Love the story Lori and that you are going to share the wealth with your friend Michelle.  A GoGIrl and GoGirl T-shirt are on its way to you now.

Enjoy Cricket's GoGirl Story:

I am a retired undercover police office and let me tell you the only thing I had to use back in the 90's was a plastic cup and a funnel.  It worked but it was a pain to use in small enclosed spaces like I was so often found myself having to use it.  Oh, how I wished I had a Go-Girl back then!!!  
 I remember my first experience of being in a Ford Mustang while watching a house that we were waiting on a search warrant.  I was assigned to one end of the street and my partner to the other end.  After about ten hours it was mandatory to use the cup and funnel.  I had used numerous times an empty milk jug and and funnel while in the surveillance van.  But these small quarters required a smaller catching device.  My biggest mistake was what I did with the urine after I was done.  I didn't like the thought of keeping it in the car with me so when I was sure there was no activity (about 4:30 am) I poured it out the driver's side window where it landed in a grassy area.  About 30 minutes later I watched a man in his P.J.'s and Robe open his garage door and head out with his dog for an early morning stroll.  It took the dog all but about 30 seconds to come running up next to my vehicle to smell the ground right below my window.  So, I learned a valuable lesson from that mistake.  Keep the urine in the car until I can dispose of it properly! 


Cricket we wish we could have been there for you too.  Talk about an exciting job! There is a GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt on its way to you now.

Dear Sarah,
Thank you so much for sending the Go-Girl to 1st Medical Battalion, Alpha Company.  The girls were absolutely ecstatic to receive it, and everyone was excited to send this picture with their thanks!  Two girls are "missing" from the picture, but received theirs later that day.  I am in the back row, 5th person from the left (and right, actually - right in the middle).  We are headed out to Afghanistan and we all know that we will be depending on the Go-Girl the whole way through!

Thank you so much!!

There are not words for how proud it makes us feel to be part of your team Rupa.  The work that you ladies do is beyond that of what most can even begin to claim.  You are the pride of our great country.  Good luck, Be Safe, and Thank You for taking us along with you.

Enjoy Joy's GoGirl Story & Photo:

I am so excited about Go Girl!!  I found you while browsing on the internet for some options for an upcoming trip.
 
Joy on a Mission Trip
I am a missionary and will be heading into the jungle villages of Petén, Guatemala in a couple months. I’ve been there before and intentionally didn’t drink enough water so that I wouldn’t have to urinate in the jungle.  It is so not healthy to “hold-it” and certainly not healthy to spend day after day not hydrating properly in tropical heat and humidity.  This 10 week trip will include camping in these villages.  I’m so excited to order and try out my Go Girl before heading to Guatemala and then going with confidence that I can “go with confidence.”
 
I was looking for a female urinal, but didn’t like the lack of ab
ility to be discrete with a large hard plastic bottle. I’m really impressed with Go Girl’s sleek and portable design and re-usability.  I’ve found exactly what I need!  Thanks Go-Girl!

Wow Joy, that is simply amazing.  We are so excited to share in all your travels and good work.  Cheers to you!  A GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt is on its way to you now.

Enjoy Amy's GoGirl Story:

I received my Go-Girl in the mail yesterday. I’ve already given it a “go” at home and found it to be very user friendly! My cousin’s wife picked one up for herself at the Minnesota State Fair and shared her clever purchase on Facebook. Of course, I immediately posted that I was seriously going to have to invest in one for myself, as I am an avid climber and spend many weekends in the great outdoors; either hanging at the base of a local crag, or hanging on the side of the rock, often for hours at a time. Her next post was fantastic news that one was in the mail on the way to me…she and my cousin felt I should have one…yes!!!
 
Last summer I climbed the east buttress of Mt. Whitney, and the Go-Girl would have been my perfect climbing companion. The most difficult part of the entire climb was figuring out how to pee on a small ledge. Unfortunately I put off going to the bathroom while I was on a bigger ledge, figuring I could go at the next belay. I was unpleasantly surprised when I was met with a considerably smaller ledge and waiting was no longer an option. My husband had to do everything for me (except pee) while I anchored in and clung to the wall. Can I just say it was no small feat! Thank goodness for wicking material, as it was impossible to avoid my pants and shoes! A Go-Girl would have made such a huge difference in that experience!
 
My husband and I are planning to climb this weekend, so I can hardly wait to use my Go-Girl on our multi-pitch climb. My “holding it until I get to the top” days are over!!!

 

We will have to go with you on your next climbing adventure Amy!  Be on the look out for a GoGirl T-shirt and GoGirl in your mail soon :)

Enjoy Lauri's GoGirl Story:

I won a couple go-girls a while back on Twitter and finally brought one along on our weekend trip to the Boundary Waters.  Love it.  I thought it would be 'messier' but was easy to wipe out and put back in the tube for next time.  So easy that I'll be putting it in my purse to carry every day!

Anyways, I just entered the quarterly contest and noticed one category that you may be missing for 'how will you use a go-girl'.  Military Women!  I used to be a loadmaster in the MN Air National Guard.  I
would have loved to have a go-girl back then!!   Basically I flew
around in the back of the C-130 cargo planes.  Our 'bathroom' was a platform with a shower curtain for privacy.  'Privacy' was certainly relative when we were hauling 90 Army guys around on the plane.  They weren't so good at checking to see if someone was using the bathroom before pulling back the curtain!

The women flyers (loadmasters, flight engineers, pilots and
navigators) wear a flight suit and the only way to use the toilet is to unzip the flight suit and drop the whole thing so we can hover over the seat (not so fun when it was a bit bumpy).  So having the curtain opened could end up to be a bit embarassing not to mention dropping our flight suit landed it on the platform which wasn't exactly the cleanest after all the guys using it.  The go-girl would allow females to keep the flight suit on, unzip it from the bottom up just like guys can, hold the go-girl with one hand and hold the curtain shut with the other.  And actually, the planes I was trained on were older than what they have here in MN and the only toilet is literally a bucket with a plastic bag in it.  Guys could open a little hatch and pee out the side of the plane, women had to squat over the bucket and even worse, whoever used the bucket had to empty it when the flight was over.
Needless to say, I never used it.

I imagine the go-girl would be a welcome addition to any women's pocket in the military!

Love your product and hope you might be able to find a bunch more customers in the military!

Lauri S


Lauri we are so glad that we got to go to the Boundary Waters with you.  It is so beautiful up there.  The Military is totally a market we are breaking into, thank you so much for your recommendation and your kind words.  A GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt should be on its way to you soon.

Wow, this is going to come in handy for my job!  I'm a stuntwoman, and there are times that I have to sit in a car, for a scene, for hours and hours on end.  A lot of the car scenes are filmed all night until the sun comes up, so I drink a lot of coffee to keep me on point.....and we all know what coffee does.  Bathrooms are sometimes miles from the set, and time is money when we are filming, so I have had to get very creative when I have to "go."  The GoGirl is going to make my life so much easier!!!  Thank you.

Seriously Tina, we are so happy that we make your VERY exciting life a little easier.  Be on the look out for a GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt to be headed your way.

Enjoy Melody's GoGirl Story:
 
I just happened to be "channel surfing" today, and stopped when I heard and saw your product being advertised. The description, usage and construction immediately caught my attention! The number of  times I could have used it!  Had it only been available to me over the years! Traveling down the freeway alone at night. Long road trips. A car full of kids. Hiking with guy friends. Walking miles of unending beaches and coastline. Primitive camping in the mountains and wilderness. Picnics and Family reunions in remote areas. I can't even begin to count the times that I have had to find "creative" ways to conceal myself modestly. Just so I could simply pee! Oh how I wish I had known about the GOGIRL!  But I can tell you this. I will NEVER be without one, ever again! A day won't go by, that I will be without one in my purse, backpack, totebag, glovebox, etc. It will be my constant companion from now on! I am thankful, finally there is the GOGIRL! I find it a practical and functional product, who's value far outweighs the price! I searched online for similar products, (just to do a comparison.) And there IS NO comparison! No other product comes close. I know I will be happy about choosing, (and using) the GOGIRL. I thank you, (and my bladder thanks you) from the bottom of my heart!
 
Melody we can't wait to be with you on your many adventures in the future and we are so sad we couldn't have been there in the past.  There is a GoGirl and GoGirl T-shirt on its way to you now.

Just got back from a trip to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and my husband and I did several long hikes (6+ hours).  In the past, we'd always have to cut our trips short because, of course, I needed a bathroom break.  BUT, this time I had my Go Girl in my backpack, along with my biodegradable toilet tissue, and I was able to take care of business in the woods.  Also, when I needed water, I wasn't squeamish about drinking as much as I needed to quench my thirst because I could stop anytime I needed to without much effort at all!  THANKS for making my trip so much more enjoyable!

Sara, thank you for your great story and cheers to the great outdoors!  There is a t-shirt and GoGirl on its way to you now.

Boy, was I the envy of the Iowa baseball moms!  We were watching our sons play high school baseball, eating our snacks and drinks and had to use the bathrooms during our 2-game baseball event.  The only thing available were some dirty (and nasty) pot-a-potties for the teams and fans to use.  I just happened to have my handy “GO GIRL” in my bag and was able to use the bathrooms with ease and comfort!  I showed the other baseball ladies my GO GIRL and they were all impressed!  They all wanted to get “online” and get their own baseball GO GIRL!

 
Thanks Go GIRL team for making my BASEBALL experience more pleasant!!  Go Dodgers!!

Enjoy Tabitha's GoGirl Story:

Last weekend, I went on my first (ever) camping trip with my husband, without a thought to the restroom situation. We traveled to a state park, set up our tent, and I was pleased to find a restroom within a few hundred feet of us, so I figured all would be well. It wasn't until I made my first trip to the bathroom that I realized how disgusting a public campsite restroom would be! There were actually dead bugs on the seats! Not to mention, when night fell, how those few hundred feet from our tent to the bathroom suddenly felt like a mile, with me trying to stay off the main road (cars would drive down the winding road at incredible speeds, so walking directly on the asphalt was a very dangerous idea), and yet also trying not to accidentally walk through poison ivy or trip over tree branches/rocks/wildlife. The only other option was squatting somewhere near the campsite, leaving me feeling very exposed and a likely target for insects/poison ivy/etc. So I spent the entire weekend alternating between hovering over the nasty toilet seat and squatting behind a thick cover of trees – definitely not a fun experience. My husband, however, seemed unaffected by the restroom dilemma, which I decided was definitely not fair.

So, once we returned home, I sat down at my computer and fervently researched solutions to my problem (because I refuse to allow this issue to hold me back from camping and other outdoor activities!), and came upon a few websites, including yours. I was amazed to find that someone had come up with such a wonderful idea to combat my dilemma! After careful consideration, it was down between the Go-Girl and Shewee, so I set out to read online reviews and testimonials comparing the two. Thanks to quite a few informative blogs (Mommy from the Midwest, forums on Babycenter, etc.) and customer videos, as well as your well-maintained site, Go-girl soon became the hands-down choice for me. Where the Shewee is made of stiff, hard plastic, and a slimmer base that seemed to me to be more likely to leak, your product is soft, flexible, stores discreetly, and has a much wider base, as well as a lip to keep leaks to a minimum (if at all, as I haven't yet encountered any spills or leaks), and comes in a handy storage case – I was immediately sold!

And though this many seem insignificant to other customers, I was so impressed by your youthful, modern design of packaging and branding, I had already been leaning toward your product before I ever came across any customer reviews. Many companies don't seem to realize how crucial graphic design can be, but your logo and website drew me in immediately: the fun pink colors created a sense, to me, that your product was still feminine (which is very important, I would think, considering your demographic), while still giving a playful, tomboy feel. Your name (Go-girl) is incredibly clever, and your slogan ("Don't take life sitting down") is like a rallying cry for women to take initiative and to no longer settle for a situation simply because nature didn't see fit to equip us with a means to go when we are out, enjoying outdoor sports and activities. We no longer have to feel excluded from certain activities that we really enjoy, simply because there isn't a clean restroom handy! Your use of design alone created a feeling of empowerment and inspiration in me, just by stumbling upon your website! And the fact that your product lives up to the image you present – well, that makes me a Go-girl for life! I can't thank you enough for the freedom you've given me, and for such a low price! And just three days after my first camping trip, I hold in my hands the device that will no longer allow my bladder to get in the way of having fun!

I wish you all the success in the world, as I imagine it's a bit difficult to sell this product to some women (I'm trying to convince her, but I don't think my mom is at the point that she'll even consider it), since the subject of urination is a bit taboo... But I hope the majority of your potential customers will realize that this product is far more hygienic, safer, easier, and more discreet than hovering or squatting. Thank you again!


No..THANK YOU TABITHA!  Your story is fantastic and we are so glad that we will be with you the next time you go camping: Bugs beware.  There is a GoGirl T-Shirt and GoGirl on its way to you now.

The Go Girls are very excited to continue to sharing our GoGirl Story Series.  We are calling for all you lovely ladies to share your GoGirl stories with us: times when you needed us, thought of us, or used us.  Email us at info@go-girl.com to participate.  We will post a new story each week or so and the person submitting will get a free GoGirl for sharing.

Enjoy Kathleen C's GoGirl Story:

I ran into you guys at your booth at Twin Cities Pride and proudly displayed my Go-Girl (with the printing pretty well worn off the tube) that had just returned from a trip to the Great North.  One of you suggested that I should write a testimonial about the trip, so here goes:
 
My spouse, Erica and I bought Go-Girls to use during our recent backpacking trip.  We spent a week hiking the Greenstone Ridge Trail on lovely Isle Royale in Lake Superior.  I can attest from past experience that backcountry pit toilets are somewhere between nasty and unspeakably vile.  With the Go-Girl in hand, neither of us had to actually sit on one of those to urinate for the entire week!  They also eliminated the need to squat in the tall weeds off the trail, which minimizes the risk of poison ivy, etc.  In between uses, we would shake them off (the silicone construction keeps liquid from adhering) and/or rinse them with a little water, then roll them back into their storage tube, which we kept in an outer mesh pocket of our packs for easy access.

Thank you for your story Kathleen!  We are so glad we could help you and Erica have a squat free trip.  Your GoGirl and GoGirl T-Shirt are en route.

GoGirl Story 1: Colleen and the Port-A-Potty

Enjoy Colleen's GoGirl Story: 
       
I was training for a full marathon, and decided to make a pit stop at a convenient port-a-potty on my route.  This particular port-a-potty is located on a golf course.  As I ran towards it I noticed to older gentleman getting ready to play a round of golf.  I sat down on the port-a-potty and noticed a spider hanging near the door.  (I hate spiders!!). I kept my eye on the spider and thought to myself he is little, I know he is there, I am ok.  I finished up my business and grabbed toliet paper to wipe off.  When I went to wipe off, to my horror I had a huge spider with his legs stretched between my legs just sitting there.  I threw the toliet paper at it, screamed and in one smooth moved hit the handle of the porta-potty door and bolted out, screaming the whole way with my pants down around my upper legs.  Needless to say the guys ready to tee off got a show of my naked body jumping from the port-a-potty.  I was so afraid the spider was hiding in my shorts, I could hardly run.  I cut my run short, ran home fast and took a shower.  Yucky!!!!!

       
Thanks for sharing Colleen and your free GoGirl is enroute.  We will totally have your back the next time you encounter an icky port-a-potty or a nasty spider.
