A sanitary device for use by a male wearer was granted a patent. The device includes a U-shape pad with a rear zone and two side arms attached to the rear zone extending away in parallel from the rear zone. Two side arms define a penile/scrotum collar. The rear zone is designed for placement around the buttocks area of the male wearer and the two side arms are graspable by the male wearer to pull the penile/scrotum collar underneath the penis and scrotum area of the male wearer, whereby minimizing physical restraints from the sanitary device on the penis and scrotum of the male wearer. A top layer comprises a liquid-pervious material and faces away from the torso of the male. Made of a liquid adsorbent material, a middle layer is attached underneath the top layer. A bottom layer is attached underneath the middle layer and has an exposed surface intended to be in contact with a portion of the torso of the male wearer. An adhesive zone is attached to a portion of the exposed surface of the bottom layer and adheres the sanitary device around a portion of the torso of the male wearer. A paper strip is attached over the adhesive zone and is detachable from the adhesive zone when pulled away from the sanitary device. A belt is attachable to the sanitary device and is intended to be worn around the waist of the torso of the male wearer. A storage bag is included for storing the sanitary device before use in a sanitized state.
