World Continence Week
BINS4Blokes and Pelvic Floor Health for Men – Be a Part of the Solution
20 to 26 June 2022
This World Continence Week (20 to 26 June), pledge your support for the more than one million men around Australia who live with incontinence. BINS4Blokes is a men’s health initiative from the Continence Foundation of Australia and an Australia-wide awareness and advocacy campaign promoting the installation of incontinence product disposal bins in male public toilet facilities.
Since its launch in 2021, the BINS4Blokes campaign has been trialled and accepted permanently by numerous businesses, councils, sporting, and entertainment venues, ranging from regional areas such as Camden in NSW to the WACA cricket ground in Perth.

Incontinence affects 1 in 10 men in Australia, of all ages.
Did you know that many male public toilets do not have a disposal bin for men to place their continence products? This leaves men to carry used products with them or feel stressed about how they’ll throw them out. A lack of options stops men with incontinence from going out to exercise, shop and simply enjoy life

Pelvic Floor Health for Men
Like any muscle in the body, pelvic floor muscles can be trained with regular, targeted exercise. In almost all cases it’s possible to gain control over the pelvic floor muscles and to train them to do their job well.
Pelvic floor muscle exercises can help men with:
- improving bladder and bowel control
- better recovery after prostate surgery
- increased sexual sensation
- increased social confidence and quality of life.
The first thing you need to do is find out which muscles you need to train. It is very important to correctly identify your pelvic floor muscles before moving into a regular pelvic floor muscle exercise program.
