I used to shower everyday, and I kind of miss it... But now I usually shower twice a week... I have really long thick hair, so it takes forever to wash and dry and that's a pain. If I'm going out, or planning on wearing shorts though, I might shower the night before even if I'd showered enough already that week, haha.

I show everyday that I work. On the weekends I might take a shower late Friday night and not again until Sunday morning. At most I will go every other day without a shower.

Every other day to daily

I ussally shower every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  More if I have done something that makes me sweat a lot, but in an average week those 3 days.

So I gotta address the elephant in the room.  For those of you who shower somewhat infrequently do you not have sex very often?  I'm curious because i always have to shower in the am after dtd.  I shower every single day anyway but can't imagine ever skipping the morning after.  IMHO sex has a scent, not a bad one or anything, but you can smell the hormones or whatever on people.

Every morning.  During the warmer months I do a quickie shower at night as well just to rinse off sweat.  I just feel icky if I don't.

Yes, and as well, wouldn't you want to shower BEFORE dtd? I wouldn't find the idea of doing it with someone who hadn't washed very attractive.

Huh, I actually find the real smell of my husband way more sexy than I find the smell of his soap.  I hope he feels the same about me.

I wash all appropriate parts after sex, but I don't need to shower to do that.

DEFINITELY. I like clean man parts so I keep my woman parts clean for him. Common courtesy. lol.gif

yup. that's right. the pleasures of being a single student mom.

 

but you are right. i definitely showered before dtd let alone after. i could not dtd without a shower first. out in different circumstances while camping or something its a different thing, but at home omg we'd have to have a shower first or i just could not. and no it would have to be clean total body. not just parts. now after could be parts. not before. any smell of BO and my passion flies out the window.

there is always sex without a ton of foreplaywinky.gif besides sex is sweaty and gross anyway, I'd rather shower after than just before.

Same...I suppose if camping I could do it without a shower but I'd just ask him to stay face to face. lol.gif

Yeah, this. I'm a pits and bits girl too. I wash those (and my face) in the shower daily. The rest of my body gets dry if I use soap on it more than once a week. 

 

I exfoliate my face and body with granulated sugar a couple times a week, and I use either lotion or plant oils to moisturize my body.

 

I'm a daily shampooer/conditioner-er. The exception is when I've recently colored my hair. In that case I shampoo every other day in order to preserve the color.

 

DH is also a daily shower-taker, so BO is rarely a consideration when we dtd. However, if we're in a position to do so, we both try to brush our teeth before gettin' busy. We both like kissing a fresh mouth! lips.gif

Every 2 or 3 days, depending on what I have going on. And DTD. winky.gif I really don't need it more than that and it saves on water and electricity (plus the water and electricity involved in washing the towel, which gets used a half-dozen times or so before going into the laundry).
post #77 of 101

Once a day everyday usually... I live in Florida and work out 4 to 5 days a week so it's a must for me. I only shampoo and condition my hair every third day though. It dries out if I wash it more frequently than that.

I probably average about every other day.  At least, that's how it is in the spring and fall.  Winter, probably not as often (I dry out) and probably more often in the summer when I am more likely to go hiking, put on sunblock, or come in contact with salt water, those make me feel like I have a film of grime on me and I have to wash it off.  I like my showers hot hot hot HOT so I generally try to shower every other day if possible, because using that much hot water on a regular basis would make me feel guilty.

 

Incidentally, I rarely shower in the morning. Usually late-morning early-afternoonish.

DH has skin issues, so we use unscented soap. I don't find the smell of musty crotch to be particularly attractive, and I don't expect DH to, either. I suppose if it's just a quickie, it wouldn't matter. But there are other ways to have sex besides bumping uglies, and I don't really want my face to be near dirty balls, TYVM. I have a very sensitive nose, and smells seriously affect my mood....whether for better or worse.

 

As for the original topic....I work in a restaurant at present so I shower just about every day, or at least every day that I work. I can't go to bed reeking of kitchen. Grosses me out. I'm soon to start my clinicals for ultrasound school, and if I end up training in an actual hospital I will probably still shower on days that I work. Germs.
