Body-Worn Urinals

What is a body-worn urinal?

Body-worn urinal (BWU) is a general term used to describe a wide range of male devices which are mainly reusable (although they can have a disposable part such as a leg bag) that are designed to collect urine as it leaves the body. They offer an alternative to a disposable sheath system and are secured in place using either straps, specially designed underwear or occasionally adhesive.

Top Tips

  1. I wear a body worn urinal. To help in putting the device on my wife made me a lycra sleeve about 6" long which is a snug fit over my penis, attached to a narrow tape, 12" long. I roll the lycra sleeve over my penis like a condom and thread the tape through the urinal. I then slide the urinal up the tape until the tip of my penis is about to enter the urinal. I then hold the urinal against the end of my penis, I pull gently on the tape. This pulls my penis effortlessly into the urinal.

  7. I use a body-worn urinal The point at which the bag joins the drain tube is a weakness (over time movement causes it to crack and leak) and I strengthen this with duck tape.
