Called in Barbados a "Po" I think they mean a "pot" but probably mistook the French pronunciation.
Also the classy expression is..'The white lady with hands akimbo" 'Potty" is for the kids.

I grew up in the '60s with my mother and grandmother who, coming from Jamaica, referred to the pee-can as a chimmy.

I am using the Posey to do Sits bath, once the Posey is properly positioned on/around the toilet it feels wonderful to sit and let the steam from the hot water enters the private area it feels soothing especially after the bath.
