Having used a lot of stps in my time, I’ve learnt a few tricks along the way to just make it that little bit easier.

Here’s a little summary of tips and tricks to keep in mind when using an stp.

• Always wear snug underwear with a side slit. It’s so much easier to use an stp when you don’t need to hoik it over a waist band.

• Another good trick as far as side slit underwear goes, is to cut a small hole in the layer that sits against your skin, where the shaft sits and actually pull the shaft through this first layer. This helps with keeping the stp in place and makes using it that much easier as it doesn’t have to bend around two separately directioned pieces of material.

• You’ll notice all side slit underwear has the slit on the right seeing most of us are right handed (I’m sure lefty underwear is available somewhere but I haven’t come across it.) To further aid in easy access, I recommend wearing your stp with the shaft sitting about 45 degrees upward and towards the left. That way it sits very comfortably, won’t create any embarrassing bulges, and is very easy to access.

• Once you’ve finished peeing,there’s a good chance there’ll be some left overs in the bottom of the cup. Discretely lift the cup forward with your thumbs, so that any remainder runs straight down the shaft and out and you’ll be guaranteed it’s all cleared.
