This caused the "stream" to suddenly pull to one side. So if squatting to pee, suddenly it would go down my leg into my shoe! There is no way to change angle and make it work consistently - I've tried over and over and over. This autoimmune condition rare in young women, but affects a good proportion of women over 40, and can reshape (the term I prefer to "deform") the genitalia a bit. Causing odd effects like angled pee-streams. Later, I got sick in my adulthood, and for many years couldn't hold a crouch, but that's another issue, really.

I do not like squatting due to the splash factor, and also (ALERT TMI) as women age, their anatomy changes and things don't come out in a nice straight stream....more likely to come out sideways etc. And that's all I'll say about that!

BTW, has it been addressed yet why dog pee yellows lawns ? does ours? Is it a matter of them using the same spot repeatedly, if posssible?

Everybody was a bit reluctant for the one that ended up the clear winner. We called it "the trough style". Coco says it looks like a spoon and she was concerned that it would be a big, messy, splashback disaster. But Coco tried it and said it worked far better than expected and far better than the others.
One last point - there were a lot of different colors. All of the women here were dead set against the flesh colors. In the end black was the favorite because it seemed to lend to the most discretion. There is a teal that is kinda close to the color of blue jeans that was the runner up. Bright colors seems to include the message "hey everybody, look at this!"
