Their whole website looks like a bad joke, are you sure that's actually real?

After knee surgery due to a skiing accident in Zermatt, Switzerland, I was told to stay in bed and not move much for a week. I was handed a men’s portable urinal which did indeed limit my trips to and from the bathroom. It was a green, plastic, ugly piece of equipment. Soon after I began to walk , I realized that I had developed a lazy habit. I started using the green, plastic urinal again. My girlfriend was furious and said that the urinal wasn’t acceptable in the bedroom. That was the moment when I decided that there had to be something better than this. A product with a positive design approach. Maybe even with a touch of sex appeal if that could ever happen!”


Yeah, his girlfriend must be way happier now.

If it's a joke, he's really committed to it, here's the US Design Patent record (design also registered in EU and Japan).

It surfaced that the mother of the jar's creator, and the woman who is the legal owner of the company, is a member of the Nicosia Municipal Board, and former Vice-Mayor with the ruling conservative party DISY.
Kinda explains why this could get EU funding without anyone objecting to it in the first place.

I've just barely started learning about sexual harassment at my workplace. (Meaning the kind of harassment women are currently facing there).
