OP, that same sentiment spelled trouble for Whitney Houston.
I don't mind taking a shower, I just hate washing my hair.
Shaving is what I've become lazy about. Every other day at most - sometimes I'll skip two days in a row.
I always showered every day when I was working, but now that I'm retired, I only shower if I'm going out (or at least every third day.) You can get away with that when you live alone!
I feel the same way about wiping, r7.
I shower every day in summer, every fourth day in winter unless I've worked out. My skin has gotten that much drier through the years. Shaving: I don't shave on Sundays to control the skin irritation.
You've come to the right place, OP. Your stench will be greatly appreciated by the numerous trolls who post here who think B.O. is hot and "masculine."
What's a shower?
And everyone in your neighborhood is sick of smelling you.
I hate going to work and buying groceries
to each her or his own. Do and be whom you like, but care about the direct and indirect feedback of others.
Brushing your teeth ain't all that, neither. Fuck it.
I always wait until there is a ginormous shit stain on my underwear before I take a shower. I mean, it really has to stick to me when I get up off a chair.
Fuckin' gross, R16.
Ah warsh mah self with a rag on a stick.
Have you tried masturbation while showering? It can greatly enhance the experience.
I don't leave the house in the morning til I've showered.
It is part of the waking up process along with teeth brushing.
Shaving, OTOH, is a pain in the ass and razors are just so fucking expensive.
Okay...I'm going out on a limb with this response. I shower every day, but I am really turned on by young dudes who have strong body odor. I mean, smelly armpits, sweaty balls, ripe groins. Not much into dick cheese...but the rest gets me all hot and bothered. I have started to use only Ivory, unscented soap and have quit using underarm deodorant. I get off to smelling my own pits. I still can't go more than a day or two without washing my hair as I have oily skin and my hair gets all sticky and matted after not washing it for a couple of days. So far, I have been able to get away with this at work with no apparent disgust by my coworkers. Oh...and also, nothing makes my dick go limp more than a hot guy, who you get home, undress, and he smells like a freakin' woman with so much cologne on that it chokes you.
Bathing daily is crucial when you have the flu. It helps knock all the shit out of your lungs and sinuses.
I hate shaving. Can't they pull the beard hairs out permanently?
I know what you mean.
Dead at R4
If one ceases to shower, where will one douche?
And it's a verrrrrry long stick, too. Ain't it Mama June (R18)?
Yes yes YES to all of that, R21. I could've written it. Can I ask where you live where it's possible to run into young men with ripe groins? I live for the aroma of a hot nutsack.
I'm 34 and in NYC, and I hook up at the gym a lot. Sadly, those guys have all just come from soaping themselves up in the showers.
I find shaving and showering boring too but better than feeling dirty and grubby.
I shower every day. I can't stand the feeling of not being clean. Makes my skin crawl.
If I am just staying home for the day, I am a bit lazy to shower. I also think it's better for my skin if I give it a break every now and then. I work at a pharmacy and the people who come with skin problems, they often say they take a shower twice a day, which I find completely unnecessary.
The body sweats 2 liters of water through evaporating, if you exercise you might add another liter. So if you don't smell from sweating out 2 liters you don't smell if you sweat out another liter.
Hmmm you should get some luxurious shower gels to perk up your daily routine, OP!
Brushing teeth is boring- walking is boring- gosh, sleep is well- puts me to sleep.
Where do these people come from?
Guess I'm not alone. I hate shaving but showering is worse. I like being clean but hate the sensation of water hitting my skin.
It's like getting caught in the rain.
Have you tried the hand-held shower nozzle variety? Ooo, the places water can go.
r34 does not like pina coladas either.
Nobody said it was going to be easy, Tina darling.
Is anything more banal than flossing?
Then go back to Europe, OP! In America, we shower daily!
Love it or leave it, stinky!
I take a shower once a week in winter and twice a week in summer. Works for me, don't care what anyone else thinks.
We know, r40. It's as plain as the reek from your pits that filthy fuckers like you never "care what anyone else thinks."
I shower twice a day because of the gym.
I know literally no one who doesn't shower / bathe at least once a day.
So screw you, R:39
I'm semi-retired, currently live alone, and I shower faithfully every day. However, I am going for the Smith Bros. cough drop look.
Really? It only takes a few min and you can just space out while u go through the motions.
I might consider it as a cost saving measure, but water is so cheap, might as well take as many showers as you like.
You should make a game of this.
Don't take any shower until you have reached a point where your uncomfortable.
Find out the spread, in terms of days, to which you can stretch this out.
[italic]Fight the Shower![/italic]
I shower daily. It wakes my body up and gets me ready for work. But I must say I like to nuzzle pitmusk after a long day. Deodorant and cologne i can do without on me or mine.
I love showering. I love a nice hot shower. I can stay in there forever.
Not me, OP. Like most sane people, I value personal hygiene and recognize that others do as well. People who noticeably smell, or have visible dirt on themselves such as dirty nails, greasy skin or greasy hair, are shunned and avoided by most people. In addition to their unpleasant appearance and scent, they spread germs and usually have underlying mental health issues as well.
Good luck with your mental health issues.
[quote]It's boring and repetitive and I'm over it.
Are you aware that the purpose of personal hygiene is not to entertain or excite you?
Do you understand what an "obligation" is? It's not a game or a new form of masturbation. It's something you do because other people expect it from you, usually at the barest minimum.
R21, count me in on that game!!!
I do desktop computer support for a large corporation, over nine hundred people in the regional office. There are ten technicians and we know who all of the stinky people are. I'm sure those people are telling themselves "I must not smell too bad, I never get any complaints". We say things to each other like "oh my god he is ripe today" or "his cube stinks and he has not been at work for two days".
OP, do you listen to music while in the shower? Singing along in the shower is one of the highlights of my day.
You negative Nellies should just SUCK IT!
You people are fucking literally disgusting.
You need to wash the funk off with HOT water and lye soap to be truly free of your inner demons.
That is pretty gross, OP. At least I try to keep "things" in check.
If God had intended for people to shower every day, he would have invented them.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
