Puday Cups - Notes From the Field

First Puday Cup Encounter

I first noticed the cup on top of the toilet. To me, it seemed like a very ordinary cup. This particular cup was one of those you get from that frozen daiquiri place - Fat Tuesdays. I didn't think much of the cup at first and grabbed it from the bathroom and put it in the dishwasher. I later heard someone from the bathroom exclaim "where did my puday cup go?" I was, like, "your what cup?"

Puday Cup Purpose

After an interesting conversation, I came to realize a "puday cup" is used to clean the puday (Asian girl private parts). Basically, you fill the puday cup with warm water and dump the warm water over the private parts to wash away any urine. I was somewhat intrigued with this puday cup thing and asked a lot of questions.

Puday Cup Use

Based on my experience, the puday cup is most popular with Filipino girls. I find this odd since the rest of Asian culture thinks Filipinos are "dirty", yet they use puday cups. Puday cup users are proud users of puday cups and often make fun of white girls and other non-puday-cup-using girls for not using puday cups. I often heard things like, "those girls are dirty...patting it with tissue doesn't clean it...the pee is still there".

Puday Cup Selection

When choosing a puday cup, I noticed a trend - most puday cups tend to be plastic, 10-12 ounce cups. In hotels, I've seen the standard drink glass used, as well as even the coffee cups, but I think these were used out of desperation. I think plastic is preferred because it won't break if knocked off the toilet, plus it adheres to the toilet better than glass, which has been known to slip off. Puday cups tend to be practical, multipurpose cups...a wine glass, shot glass, or martini glass are poor choices for puday cups.


Puday Cup Etiquette

Even though a puday cup is clean, it's considered poor form and bad luck to drink out of one. Once a puday cup, always a puday cup. They serve one goddess only - the puday goddess. Drinking from the puday cup may upset puday chi and piss off the puday goddess. If you are desperately thirsty in the bathroom, cup your hands and use those. By all means, avoid the puday cup!

      Paper Moon - yes, by all means, don't upset the Puday Goddess. Long lasting draughts may be caused by upsetting the Puday Goddess, causing everything to wither and die away!
