Body-Worn Urinals

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.

Correct fit can be the difference between success and failure with this device. Size can change over time and a reassessment may be beneficial.


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.

  3. To prevent chafing of my scrotum by the groin straps I wear my urinal over an elasticated scrotal support.

  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.

  9. I have worn a Body-worn urinal for a year now with a direct flow bag on my thigh. I wear it on top of knee length under pants which has a fly opening, this stops the straps chaffing between my legs. I use a non sting barrier cream on the underside of my penis which does get sore after a few days, then I swoop the body-worn urinal for a external sheath which I wear for 24hrs to give my penis a chance to recover
