So, first things first: the Give-Away! I dropped everyone's names into a hat so I could give extra points for awesomely horrible pee stories like Leauxra's, and the winner was Alison from El Blog de Los Montoya's. I'll be sending along Alison's free copy so she can view and review on her blog.
Now for my review.
First, I want to say how awesome it is that Stacey from Stand2Pee offered up the free DVD's and the discount code for all of us. She also remains available to any ladies who may need advice on the topic. If you needed some guidance here, she is super sweet so don't be shy!
That said, I found that the video itself was not ideal for my learning. It focused in on making the viewer comfortable with the idea of peeing standing up and did not provide much actual instruction. In fact, the section where they actually tell you how to pee standing up lasts for about 30 seconds - told in a rushed voice before moving on to practice.
My thought here is that if I have already dropped $10 to $20 for the DVD, I don't need to be told how awesome it would be to pee standing up - I need instruction and pointers for varying situations (i.e. peeing while wearing tight jeans instead of a loose skirt, or peeing on a hill vs. flat ground).
If you are at all nervous about peeing standing up, or if you feel the need for some psychological coaching to get up the nerve to try it - then yes, I recommend this DVD to you. Or if you have a friend that you think would be liberated by being able to pee standing up but maybe she is uncomfortable talking about it, then this would make a great gift for her. I could also see this being entertaining at a slumber party, with or without alcoholic libations.
However, if you are already ready to pee standing up without reservation - just do a web search. The top three web pages that I found after doing a Google search for "women pee standing up instructions" gave much better details on the process and they were entirely free.
SO. Who has some pointers on peeing standing up?
Guys, feel free to chime in too - my husband definitely has given me some good advice on where to pee when I've been using my Freshette! (A device which, I still highly recommend)
