Sick and tired of showering

And I only shower every other day. It's boring and repetitive and I'm over it. Anyone else?

My morning shower is the highlight of every day. It's all downhill from there.

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.

by Anonymousreply 610/30/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 810/30/2013

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."

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.

Have you tried masturbation while showering? It can greatly enhance the experience.

by Anonymousreply 1910/30/2013

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?

And it's a verrrrrry long stick, too. Ain't it Mama June (R18)?

by Anonymousreply 2710/30/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2910/31/2013

I shower every day. I can't stand the feeling of not being clean. Makes my skin crawl.

by Anonymousreply 3010/31/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3110/31/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 3310/31/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4511/01/2013

I might consider it as a cost saving measure, but water is so cheap, might as well take as many showers as you like.

by Anonymousreply 4611/01/2013


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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4911/01/2013

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.
