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 storage bag is included for storing the sanitary device before use in a sanitized state.
