Any AUS users out there?
It's interesting how we keep discovering new little things. I have been trying to get used to going into a stall to urinate when at work or traveling. Thought I had to drop trowl to use two hands activate the AUS and point Buford so he didn't blast all over everything....lol. Just this week I figured out that I can take him out just by unzipping normally at a urinal. Then, I push my hand down inside my pants and can grab my scrotum through the underware and activate the AUS....ONE HANDED. Gets me really back to normal.......LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT.
