I have a little fan mounted behind my testicles.

Or do I?

I've basically forgotten what personal hygiene means. When I was a kid, a girl named Jean lived next door. At work, I was mildly attracted to a woman named Jeanne. To both of them, I say "hello, but less formally."

I don't know if I'd use the word "fan". I'm more of an admirer.

"...necessity for scrupulous personal hygiene was rather less important in practice than we'd previously considered,"

Dude, your cat considers your lap as litter box Beta.

Jack, who being in a high-risk group rarely left home, said he hadn't washed his hair since February 2020, "and I only shower if I need to leave the building". In full lockdown, with his shopping delivered, that meant going for up to a month without showering. "I washed my bits," he adds (a flannel wash). "My skin feels so much healthier." He didn't notice body odour, only starting to feel grimy after about three and a half weeks.

I've gone for months on hemodialysis, with a tube coming out of my chest, forbidden to take a bath or shower for fear of infection. Nothing but washcloth wipe-downs and washing my hair in the sink. I can't imagine willingly living like this for just for the hell of it.

Depending on the season, TFA isn't wrong.

Around here, if it's mid-winter, the daytime high outside is maybe 42, and my indoors hovers at 67? Yeah, you can skip a day between showering. You're not exactly sweating in that kind of situation.

Summer, when the morning low is 65 outside and it's a godforsaken 80 inside before it finally cools off enough I can open the windows (at 11pm, an hour after sundown)? Yeah that's a shower a day or you're just gross.

dittybopper: Meh.  I just eat some kimchi.

It's even more effective if you bathe with it.
