Personal hygine, what do you think is acceptable

Found 14th May 2010
Was on a student website and this girl was saying her boyfriend only showers about once every 5 days though doesnt sweat or smell bad but is thinking of leaving him as he only changes underwear every 2-3 days.

All these people came on talking about how disgusting it was and the general consensus is that in a relationship you need to shower once a day and out of one every 2 days but also quite a few people said that showering less than once a day is disgusting.

Another said that you should always have a shower before getting into a bed with someone which is kinda understandable.

Quite a few people were telling this girl to dump her boyfriend as she found a stain on his underwear

I dont know about the girls situation but I think people were overreacting saying that showering once a day or less is bad hygine when IMO unless you are sweaty say after coming back from the gym or if its a hot day a wash is all thats needed.

ergh !! at least once a day id say is good hygine if you only shower once on the morning, you gota have a good wash before bed !

Relationship or not, I try to shower everyday at least once! If I've been sweating through whatever means I will try and have another asap.

I will admit I don't wash items like my jeans that often, sometimes might wear them 4-5 days without washing them. But items like tshirts will only be worn for 2 days max, and that isnt from the moment i get up to the time i go to bed either.

I showered a week last Tuesday.

Who wants to touch me?

Longest I ever went without a bath/shower was 12 days. Clean socks and skids everyday and a strip wash mind.

Yeah I am similar but wash everything pretty much after 2 days and change underwear 1-2 times a day and t shirts about 1 day in summer or 2 in winter

But a showers not always needed imo if you didnt really sweat the entire day then a wash before bed is enough and often a wash in morning is enough.

Ryouga, the more often you have a shower...the more people will want to get into bed with you.

No I will happily go to bed with just having a quick wash and have a shower in the morning. But then we also wash our bedding every 2-3 weeks normally.
I am afraid I often go commando, just hate underwear to be honest. Then my jeans/trousers/shorts do get washed more often.

But as you state depends in summer and winter as well. When it is really hot ill go through 2 tshirts in one day sometimes.

I shower at least once a day and try and leave it as late as possible i.e if I wake up early and dont have anything to do try and not leave the house till after 2pm but this is also because I shave at same time as the shower so it saves me having rough skin by end of day.

I did hear that showering takes off a minor layer of skin though and its bad to do it often.

Just ona side note, who irons jeans? My missus slates me for never ironing mine. Iron everything else excluding underwear & socks.

True story!

Went to T in the Park in Scotland back in the 90's and spent about five days rolling around in mud, having lame sex, drinking stupid amounts of low grade beer and eating burgers.

Anyway, got to the bus station after the event and had a conversation with a mirror thinking it was someone else talking back to me. I had a dirty beard, dirty hair, dirty face, dirty clothes and dirty..... everything!

Never again!

deja vu

IMHO and as a laydeeeeeeee, I shower almost everyday. Now I'm a Mummy however I don't always have the luxury! But I do wash! Bedding gets changed at least weekly, more often in the summer. Not washing/showering for 5 days im my opinion is baaad and undies should (yet again imho) be changed daily ie, socks and pants, bra's can last a few days unless you have sweaty booobies, ha ha ha! X.

Did you not get suspicious when your friend just happened to say exactly the same as you at exactly the same time. I think it may have alerted me.

I never said you did say that.

At a minuimum a shower every other day, clean socks every other day and clean pants every day.
But tbh I'd like my man to be clean, hygeinic, to shave every day and to smell nice and that would involve a shower a day and clean clothes, no excuse not to really unless it's pure laziness.
