STPs, like any part of being FtM (or genderqueer!) are purely a personal decision. Whether or not you choose to use one is up to you, and no one should try to sway you in any direction. If you're looking for product reviews/comparisons, that's an entirely different thing! XD A lot of STPs are pretty inconvenient, and there's no "perfect" one, but some work better than others for different people. You just have to try one and see what works for you.
I have only tried homemade methods like the plastic container lid rolled into a tube (hit and miss) and the bottle method (small plastic bottle with a hole cut in the side and a hole poked in the lid) which worked a lot better!.
Cannot wait til I have enough money to buy an STP packer!
I sometimes use an STP, but not always. If I feel really unsafe or if the stalls are just too disgusting to sit down in, then I'll STP. I only use a medicine spoon, but I've been looking into getting tubing and making an STP out of a packer.
Hey guys! Do you use an STP, and if so which type/how?
I use an stp that I ordered from peecock products. It is quite expensive 200 to be exact with shipping and such but it is a three in one. U can pack pee and play with it. It have a funnel like end to it which means u have a free hand and can hold it with one hand and not worry about messes.
