Are You Normal?

I don't bathe if I don't feel I "need" a bath.

Sometimes, usually during the weekends, I'll skip my bath. Sure, I'll wash the essentials, but legs, arms, etc? Nope. So long as I don't smell I don't see why I should.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a dirty person. I like keeping myself looking good. But if I feel clean enough, especially if I'm not going anywhere, I don't bother with a shower.

Anyone else out there do this?

I think it's normal, as long as you realize you eventually do have to take a shower. I sometimes go a week without a shower. But that's usually when I have nothing to do and stay inside all day. I make sure to shower before I go outside, and whenever I just feel dirty. But I'd never shower EVERY DAY.

YES, YES and YES you have to shower every single day.
It's totally crazy to skip a day without a shower, to wear
clean clothes or to clean your house.
I would feel so embarassed to post something like this on the
Internet..., you should be very, very ashamed of yourself.
I shower EVERYDAY!!!
I wash my clothes every week, I use deodarant and wear clean clothes everyday.
I just don't understand why would anyone think it's ok to skip a day without a bath..
I don't care about any scientific, or Historical reason behind it..., it's down right
abnormal and disgusting..., YOU MUST, MUST SHOWER EVERY SINGLE DAY..., THAT'S A FACT..., NO
QUESTIONS.., IF'S, BUT'S OR ANDS about it!!!!

You have washed some of your mental restraint away. Daily showers are not always practical or affordable when you have a large family. Who pays your water bills? Wash when you are dirty or after phycical labor. Not all human activity produces sweat and body oder in a day or two. I like to shower after work daily. Sometimes I skip a day, or even two depending. This does not make me a dirty person by all means. Those days I still wash my face and hands,scrub teeth,deoderant, mouthwash, shave. For you to be so judgemental and critical of others hygenie, is quality less desirable then body oder.

yeah, I agree with @zchristian. Don't listen to @Johanna.
What do you think rural humans did a hundred years ago when there wasn't indoor plumming or a lake or a river? They let their bodies cleanse themselves. Humans don't need to bathe to be healthy. After a while of no cleaning, the body washes itself with it's natural oils. The result isn't exactly a beautiful complexion or a nice smell, but it's not unhealthy and perfectly normal.

I agree. Although I am sort of dirty and don't bathe as often as most people, I never feel dirty. The only part of me that gets dirty is because hair gets greasy if you don't wash it, and of course genitals should be washed. Other than that, areas that don't smell or get dirty... sometimes you can't even tell if they need cleaning or not. So who cares? :)

YOU SHOULD FEEL DIRTY..., IF YOU DON'T SHOWER DAILY, IT IS NOT NORMAL TO SKIP A DAY WITHOUT A BATH..., I MEAN COMMON SOAP AND A WASH CLOTH IS SO EASY AND INEXPENSIVE TO BUY, YOU CAN GET A 3PK OF SOAP FOR UNDER $5.00 AND A WASH CLOTH FOR MAYBE .99 CENTS AND YOU DON'T WANT TO BATHE?? CMON... GET REAL!!!

Hahaha! xD

Johanna's about to pop an artery over this post.

I think Joanna is hilarious! Her reaction truly shows how passionate and indefinite she is about her own views and ways of living her OWN life. It's to the strong point where she can't conceive otherwise upon someone else. xD

Of course, I don't often approve of such mind-sets, but this harmless reaction struck me with a chuckle.

There was a period in my teenage life where I'd skip a day's shower -- but I found that was only when I was depressed and no disciplined.

Nowadays, a shower is so refreshing and energizing that the thought of skipping a day sounds painfully unappealing (especially after your daily workout. Gross! lol)

But to each their own, you're free to suit yourself. :)
