Even if you plan to just lounge around the house all day?
Not doing so is the first step towards suicide.
I like to wash everyday but I always hear from "hair gurus" that it is best to wash your hair every other day.
Now that I'm retired, I don't shower every day unless I'm planning to go outside. But I try to shower at least every other day.
Fuck no. In the wintertime, when it is very cold here, I shower every other day. Showering every day in 10 degree weather is terrifically bad for the skin, ladies. I would think you queens would know that.
I shower once every other day.
R5 Never heard of that. I know some people smell good even without showering for 5 days, by the way. I don't see what's so disgusting about abstaining from showering for extended periods as long as you don't stink and you're not filthy.
Be green! Shower once a year.
Only time I do not is when I have the flu or other illness (strep, stomach bug, etc...)
I cannot leave the house without a shower.
[quote] Do you shower everyday?
[quote] I like to wash everyday
That's tragic thing about winter, R5. I usually shower more than once a day around this time, just to warm up, and my skin is a wreck for it.
Yes. Because if I don't, I'm gross.
Same with my hair... I can't even go outside until I wash it. I wake up with serious bed-head. There is no way I could possibly skip a day.
I'm fat and sweat a lot. My crack is sweaty every morning when I wake up, and so are my balls. Of course I shower every day.
You people are just NASTY
R1, I had the exact same respone when I read the OP's post.
R5, why not just use some of the lotions from Kiehls on your skin after you shower? Whether or not one showers one HAS to moisturize during the cold weather.
R11 Thank you for that. One of my everyday pet peeves as well!
I'm the same as R6. If you took a poll, I'm sure it'd split 40% every day, 40% every other day, and 20% stinky.
I would never date, let alone have sex with, someone who didn't shower every day.
I wonder how Americans and Europeans differ on this.
The question is sort of clear.
If you were just going to lounge around the house all day. If you were not going to have quests over. If there no plans whatsoever to leave the comfort of your home.
Would you go without a shower?
If you're not going anywhere or going to receive callers, who gives a fuck if you have bedhead? Or a little ripe under your sack?
"let alone have sex with"
I'm sure you already have, R20. It'll happen again too, if you're sexually active.
Bathe every day.
If I'm not going anywhere, no. But I never go for more than a day without a shower, unless I'm sick.
Longest I've gone without washing is 36 hours. That's the absolute maximum. But the first thing I do when I wake up is brush my teeth.
Even if I shower the night before, I have to shower again in the morning. I just don't feel "right" without a morning shower.
I take three or four showers a day. But I work out twice a day and have a thing about being clean.
Every work day. If I'm not seeing anybody or doing anything on the weekend I might skip a Saturday or a Sunday if I haven't sweated heavily. Ball caps handle the hair. I'd say I shower most days, weekends included but I don't have a mental breakdown if I skip one.
I shower each day Monday through Friday and again on Saturday if I go to the gym. However, if I don't go to the gym on Saturday and I'm planning to stay in the house and not go anywhere on Saturday, then sometimes I don't shower.
On Sunday, I'm back at the gym, so I shower, But if I don't leave the house on Sunday, I sometimes don't shower.
But who's going to know? I live alone.
As Mary Jo Shively said to Suzanne Sugarbaker on 'Designing Women' when Mary Jo admitted she didn't shower that particular day, and Suzanne commented with disapproval, "Suzanne, I took care of things."
At least 3 times a day. Morning, after exercizing, (wich I do some form of everyday) and before bed.
I take a 'kitty shower'. I just lie in bed and let my 3 cats lick me, head to toe.
R33. Before bed after already showering twice during the day? Is that really necessary?
I'm the same as R30. I skip a shower on a Saturday or a Sunday every now and then, but it's uncommon.
Well, R33 thought 'exercising' really needed that 'z', so I'm guessing his motivations are a little more eccentric than ours, R35.
No, more like every third day. A side benefit is I think the musky odor that builds up is sexy. No, I don't think or expect anyone else to agree, but I have seen others talk about how they like letting that "man smell" build up too.
In the warmer months, usually more than once a day. During the winter, I will sometimes skip a day if I'm staying home and don't have plans to meet anyone.
I once went 4 days without a shower because I had a back injury. I felt so disgusting on the last day that even though it was difficult, I took a shower anyway.

So almost before you're dry from the last shower, you're taking (yet) another? Fucking hell, that scarcely leaves any time in the day for anything else.
For all of the water freaks - how long do you spend in each of your multiple daily showers?
If I'm not leaving the house and I'm just lounging around and not doing anything that's making me sweat, then I don't shower that day (unless I feel like it). However, I do wash my face.
I'm lazy, so showering is a chore for me.
Um R40, a shower takes five minutes. Try one!
Four times a day? Totally insane. I don't care how short your showers are, that's just overkill.
If you're American, were you taught as a child that resources, including water, are finite, or at least scarce? Did you always turn off the lights, radio, TV, etc. before leaving the house? As a student I worked for an exchange program in Ireland, and many of the Americans were known to take 45-minute showers.
Yes, I shower once every day.
Washing my hair, not every day. Usually actual shampoo on my hair every third day, and just rinsing it with water one day in between.
Any guy taking a 45 minute shower is doing more than washing.
The bigger question for DL'ers is this:
Are you a person who showers or bathes...and do you shower before leaving the house, or are you still doing the bath the night before as if you're a kid?
I don't understand how people can bathe the night before....every person I've worked with that did that stank, and thought they didn't. Bacteria grows overnight, and it's bacteria that gives you body odor.
I shower every day, but I only wash my towels on average once a month.
These people showering multiple times a day must have some dried out skin! Your skin actually needs some of it's natural oil, otherwise you're going to get bad wrinkles eventually.
R33. Three showers a day? You're wasting water and leaving far too much of an environmental and global footprint. Knock it off and skip the shower before bedtime.
My showers are not long ones. It doesn't take long to scub the dirt away. Three showers are necessary for me. I never go to bed without showering. I never go to work without showering. I never exercize without showering after. I'm sure I'm not alone.
I take a long shower before going to bed and a very quick one in the morning.
I don't feel completely awake until I've showered. Even if I'm hanging around the house on the weekends I'll typically hop in the shower by noon or 1.
R33/R52. You're a bit obsessive. I doubt there is much 'dirt to scrub away' at bedtime after showering in the morning and after excercizing, in which those first two showers are entirely understandable.
I haven't showered since before Halloween. No one knows. As long as you wash you're hair your fine.
And most old guys like me have no hair.
Every other. I don't sweat like some people. I wash my face and (especially) my hands several times a day, though.
I shave in the shower. I look good with bedhead and scruff. I don't wear cologne or deodorant, either. Little is as unpleasant to me as a perfumed poodle of a man.
Anyone who's ever commented on how I smell has told me how much they like it. I think I lucked out, pheromone-wise. I had a boyfriend who'd've liked for me not to shower ever. The most I'd go was three days, and if he was good, I'd let him lick my balls just before I took a shower.
I remember that weird hairdresser who used to be on What Not to Wear who suggested not washing your hair but once a year. It was like a religion to him--a greasy hair religion. Luckily, his weirdo advice never caught on with the public and he was dropped from the show.
twice a day, after breakfast & prior to bed
R5, I'm from New York but am currently living in the midwest finishing up school.
I love it, it clears my poor plugged up sinuses.
I usually shower whenever I leave the house--unless it's only for a couple of hours and I'm going to be working out soon.
If I'm at home and not going anywhere and not working out, I won't shower.
Victim cultures take too many showers.
It is their lack of cultural confidence.
I love showers too. I never feel right unless I do shower every day. I love cooler showers in the summer and really hot ones on winter days when I also love to put my towel in the dryer. The only time I don't shower every day is maybe one day when I am really sick with the flu or something.
If you go longer than 36 hrs without a shower, you will stink up your shoes.
At the very least, wash your feet.
Only if I'm going to work. I work 3 days a week.
Otherwise, every other day.
I love my ripe sack; I'm single and it's the only man musk I'm smelling.
I shower twice a week.
In a pinch you can always do a male variation of what my Great Aunt Velma announced at the dinner table one time (with arteries apparently thicker than the white sauce): 'Just take a wash cloth and PTA.'
'PTA, Aunt Velma?'
'Pussy, tits and ass. Not every day is worth slipping in tub.'
Twice a day. I live in Florida, it's so hot and humid here especially in the summer, that you have to.
No, every two or three days.
Twice a day. But I'm a big fat guy.
If you have curly hair, DON'T wash it every day. You will go prematurely bald.
R38, I 100% agree with you. I love to scratch and smell my pits and the area where your legs and groin meet. Sheer heaven! Of course, the ass crack rocks as well...
I bet you wish you could lick your own shitter, R76.
OP, "everyday" is not a noun. It is an adjective.
How about cleaning up your English, since you're the Hygiene Troll?
My "program" is to shower every other day to save water (I live in southern California where the water bill can go sky high if you don't watch it) and sponge/washcloth at the sink from the waist up on "off" days as well as splash with soap and water the body parts "in need" (need one mention the ass?) from the waist down in the tub. So I guess that would leave my hair getting a quick shampoo every other day unless I do it in the sink if it needs it. I suppose someone will find fault with this regimen, but it works for me. To brush my teeth I put a small gob on for lowers, do that, then a small gob for the uppers, do that, use Listerine (especially with the flu going around), floss, then use the water pik.
TMI for gawd's sake!
Yes. Sometimes, if I am not going anywhere, I get a shower around noon but that is the latest.
I bet you wish you could lick your own shitter, [R76].
