It’s been troubling me lately that one of my most popular posts is ‘Why do girls pee in pairs?‘. The reason that it’s so popular is that people keep googling ‘How do girls pee?’ and finding me. I have a feeling that this post isn’t what they were looking for, and I don’t want to let them down.
Who googles ‘How do girls pee?’ anyway? Dodgy question, that. You just never know these days. It is, however, a frequently asked question apparently. So, for the benefit of you curious young people out there who are genuinely wondering, I’ll explain it for you.
If you fall into the ‘just lookin’ for kicks’ category however, then I suggest you skip the biology lesson, and go to the end of this post.
So how do girls pee, then?
As you probably know, girls don’t have penises. They sit down to pee because they don’t have this specialist aiming equipment, however there are several inventions out there that can help with this problem. Very handy for long journeys and rock concerts.
The same process happens with males and females. Food and water is put into the body, then processed by the stomach and liver. All waste liquid then passes through the kidneys and ends up in the bladder. When the bladder fills, a tube called a Urethra carries the pee to an external opening. In men, the urethra runs through the penis and also carries ejaculate and pre-ejaculate during sex play. In women, the opening of the urethra is above the opening of the vagina. The opening of the urethra is very small and is not easy to see. Here is a gratuitous drawing, which makes excellent use of the word ‘Sphincter’.
You’re probably wondering how girls handle the dripping problem, right? The answer is toilet paper, and lots of it, after every function. If you want to keep a female happy (apart from leaving the toilet seat down), always replace the toilet rolls when they run out. We are lost without it.
You might also be wondering what girls do when there are no toilets around. The answer is that they squat, usually getting a friend to provide cover.
For the very very ultra modern girl, there is the SHENIS. It is the ultimate equaliser.
There. That was embarrassing.
So anyway… what were you saying?
