On a related note, I recently learned that a group of Gamers is called a "stink".

Example: "I don't recommend going into that room, there is a stink of Gamers in there."

I wash myself with a rag on a stick.

I know it's time to shower when my cat tries to bury my underwear in the litterbox.

At least once a day for me, unless there are crazy circumstances.

// has showered three times and taken a bath, all in one day (I was on vacation)

* a quick shower in the morning before heading to the beach (I'm not awake until I've had a morning shower)
* snorkeled in the ocean then a quick shower after (to get the salt water off)
* went out hiking, came back, showered before meeting a lady friend
* went out into the city at night with lady friend ... came back and had a "bath" with said lady.

// good old days

If there are any farkettes who like cheese, I should point out that I am cultivating a certain atmosphere wherein the subtle aroma of stale cheese is present.

/will never go more than 24 hours w/o a shower... usually...

I shower before and after banging your mom.

I like to shower every day, but last year, due to lots of surgery and things poking through my flesh, I had to go pretty much all of March through November without. There's only so much you can do with a washcloth and washing your hair in the sink. I felt vile all the time. I think I could hear my skin crawl.

Maybe I should just bang her while showering to be extra safe.

It really depends for me. In the summertime I usually shower at least daily, sometimes twice a day if I get especially grungy or sweaty. Spring and fall is usually once a day regardless of if I really need it. Wintertime I sometimes skip a day for similar reasons to TFA where my skin dries right the hell out.

how often do you really NEED to masturbate, for those of you who actually do?
 
2014-01-30 02:33:50 PM  
Not a bad article.  Some good arguments there, but count me in the crowd that has to have it every morning for the wake-up.

Also, comments in TFA were pretty farkin foul.

I shower or bathe once a day. I love a good bath after work. Gets me clean and gives me a chance to unwind before getting into family mode.

Spend the summers with no hot or running water. A shower is a bag of water you heat up with the sun (or if you don't mind scalding your hands a kettle)

I showered twice a month. Gross? Not really. Your face and hands you can wash in the sink. Wet wipes keep sweat and ick off the more tender areas when you head to bed. Your hair gets greasy but if you never shampoo it and brush A TON it will take care of itself and after a month it won't look so greasy. You get visited by another human maybe once a month for about 4 hours max so its not like you have to look fancy for anyone...

I love long long hot hot showers. They are the benchmark of civilization. That being said... You don't need to do it every day. The human body is not mere moments of soap from becoming a gangrenous clutch of puss and infection.

I need a shower to get up in the mornings, and sometimes my wife needs scrubbing in the evenings too.

...it just smells like it.

Winter, when smelly.
Summer when sticky.

All other times, just before meeting the public.

I don't think that was water coming out of the shower heads.
 
2014-01-30 03:07:27 PM  
The hair that I have left is fine and when I sleep, it looks like I slept with my head in a blender until I shower.  So it's shower every morning.

If I got disgustingly dirty during the day, I will shower again at night.
 
2014-01-30 03:09:39 PM  
Showered and shave every day for the 25 years I spent in the Air Force, and for a year or two afterwards...out of habit. Since then I've slid to doing so every other day, usually after cycling home from work. I do change my clothes every day, brush my teeth and use deodorant, which is nice.

Actually, you know what? Just never get out of the shower. Stay in there, I'll put your iPad in a plastic bag and I'll just hand you your food. Just please don't come in the living room anymore. These votives can only do so much.

DJ Assault succinctly summarized why women who don't take a shower also are lacking in their sex lives.

FTFA: Disgusting as it might sound, going for long periods without bathing is nothing new, according to Lancaster University sociologist, Dr. Elizabeth Lancaster.

Crapping outdoors is nothing new either, but I choose to enjoy the comforts that have come with civilised culture.

Just one, though.

Daily: teeth, armpits, asshole, groin

Every few days: the rest

/stolen but true
 
2014-01-30 03:28:33 PM  
Every two or three days. More in summer or if I sweat a lot. Very little soap, none in the hair. Always before going to a bar or something like that.

/Not as if anyone notices as long as I wear clean clothes
//People who think people start stinking after a day are delusional
 
2014-01-30 03:29:00 PM  
Pretty close to this routine every single day.

I go for at least once a day, unless its the weekend and Im being a lazy hermit, then I just let my stank ferment. I dated a girl that was from Malaysia and she would shower at least 3-4 times a day. Some of it I understod like after going to the gym or sex. Her usual schedule was like this

shower in the morning
shower after work
shower after we got back from going out shopping, dinner, etc
shower before bed

When I asked her about it she explained since it was so hot and nasty back home thats what they did. It made sense to me and she must have just gotten used to the routine of it
 
2014-01-30 03:30:48 PM  
Daily. Usually in the morning before work, to fully wake up. Might shower again after work, if I have been working on a particularly filthy automobile.

Longest I ever went was when I was in the Army. Week long FTX, at Fort Bliss. In August. Very sweaty, very dusty. It was... Gross.

Living in Florida means that if you don't shower daily, you stank.
 
2014-01-30 03:44:26 PM  
Daily.
Sometimes more often.

What are these "baths" you guys talk about?  Do you mean human soup?  I can't stand to wallow in my own filth, wash that dead skin and oil down the drain.

I've heard the phrase bleed like a stuck pig, but never sweat like a stuck pig.

Do stuck pigs sweat a lot?

Not even unstuck pigs - no sweat glands.
