The pStyle is a plastic device that allows women, nonbinary 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.

Please note that the pStyle works well for many adults and children. Due to the diversity of human bodies, it cannot work for ALL people. If you have concerns about the size of the pStyle and whether it would work for you, please contact us.

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.
If you have questions please contact us.
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.
If you are still having trouble you are welcome to contact us. with questions. We will try our best to help you figure out how to have success.
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. Non Binary folks and trans men might use the pStyle. 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.
Works great, easy to use, not super obvious what it is at first glance which is nice. The carrying case and the fact that's it's recycled are both great bonuses too. Love it!
I have only used this a couple of times since I bought it 1-2 months ago, but it is SO much easier to use than the first brand of PUD I bought. That one required practice in the shower to make sure I could control flow, and it was just awkward and uncomfortable. This one is PERFECT! No risk of overflow, and doesn't end up poking you where you aren't expecting it! I wish I had bought this one first. Love it!
This PUD is small, rigid, discreet, easy to keep clean and also practical while in use. After trying four different PUDs I ordered these as gifts for others in my family who may not want to flag their butts in the breeze or squat in a porta-potty (which places one's nose too close to the uirnal). They are made in the US and the ones I ordered are from recycled ocean plastic. Wouldn't it be cool if OB/GYN offices offered these to their clients.
I love pStyles and buy them for all my hiking friends. Easy to use and clean. Even my 6 year old granddaughter is comfortable using a pStyle on a hike. A real game changer for women when nature calls.
I have been a happy pStyle user since my daughter introduced me to them in 2012. I travel around the world on birding ecotours, and now I bring new pStyles for every woman on my tours. This time, I will be especially excited to give them the new recycled version. Thank-you pStyle, for making women’s lives better and now doing it in an environmentally sustainable way!
Game changer! How did I ever survive hiking without this!
I mostly don’t get around to writing reviews, but I am so charmed by this company that here I am. The pStyle is simple, compact, works great, shakes dry, has no weird cracks to trap things and probably wouldn’t even raise an eyebrow if I left it lying around, since it doesn’t call attention to itself. I’ve been clipping the case to my cargo pants when they are loaded down with tools : it makes life so much simpler to have to deal with taking my pants on and off all day. That the marketing is non gendered, I could get it made of ocean reclaimed plastic and shipped with no extra packaging just makes me love this company even more!
I've been using the pStyle since 2008. This $12 purchase has been literally life changing. Travel is easier, hygiene when camping/backpacking/hiking is easier, and I can stay warm when I need to pee while doing cold-weather activities. I'm something of an evangelist for the pStyle: I'll tell anyone who will listen how great it is, and hand them out for bdays/Hanukkah/whatever occasion. Do yourself a favor and get one today.
I've tried many varieties of STPs over the years and this is by far the best one. Haven't had any drips into the pants and fits well through a fly with a little downward angle.
