I think I am with you. That's why I ask. I used to be a scout and have been to two Safaris and in the Amazonas. I am not sure if it would have helped me.
It is just delegating the problem. One still has to deal with the stuff in the bottle.

Plus it reminds me this:

Female mountaineers and mountain guides that I know generally just drop their pants wherever they happen to be. All the shewee does is enable women to pee standing up, but I imagine the hassle involved, getting it in place through multiple layers of outdoor clothing, would make it more difficult, not less. And how you'd use one when paragliding I cannot begin to imagine.

I stand (or sit) to be corrected by any female mountaineers or paragliders on here who can actually speak from personal experience.
It’s so one can pee into a bottle without getting out of the sleeping bag/ tent at night.

My SIL (avid paraglider) has used a shewee type device in the past for long extended flights (5/6 hrs), she mentioned to me. I think she wears a diaper nowadays.

But what do I know, i'm just a dude.

Here's an organized Himalayan paragliding trip recommending shewees for female participants:

When I was in Copenhagen a lot of the loos were unisex
I'm personally not a fan of these unisex toilets especially in motorway stops. I still remember the beating my bladder took lining up on those unisex Scandinavian toilets. My wife took it stride, she's used to the waiting line. I on the other hand don't expect to wait 10-15min for my turn.

I went to an all day concert at Wembley Stadium in the 80s (not Live Aid). the queue for the loos was so bad women were just going into the gents and giving the blokes a fright

Enjoy your privilege ! As any woman who has ever been to the theater will tell you, 10-15 minutes is nothing.

Re: Public Toilets - [shady experience]

I was at a wedding reception in Scotland about 10 years ago where the toilet queue was phenomenal. Suddenly dawned on me it was to do with women struggling to get out of control underwear then get it back up again. I'd rather not wear it for fear of weeing myself

What is control underwear and why is it so difficult to pull up?

Also known as "shaping" underwear I think. The type of thing that squishes everything into a shape. Probably doesn't help bladder capacity either.

Ah that. Poor females. It is much easier for us males to impress the opposite sex: just stuff socks into our underpants / beach trunks and off we go!

If you are going to stuff socks in your budgie smugglers, please remember to put them down the front.

And you should avoid Ukrainian branded speedos, because Chernobyl fall out.
