    Every day (male).

    Before a long hot shower every morning I am completely non-functional.

    Are there actually people who only shower just because of society? I shower because it feels nice to be clean; the fact that society accepts it is just a benefit. And yeah, everyday.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Excellent, loving the responses so far, and a lot of males on the internet are more clean than I think my cynical mind expected.

    I know I wouldn't do it every day if I didn't have a job in which I have to be around people. If I don't shower, I tend to sweat a lot more, it seems, plus my curly friggin' hair requires washing every day, after I wake up...bed head.

    Varies. I would probably average twice a week if pain wasn't an issue. When I get pain spikes though I take quite a bit more showers (the hot water helps relieve the pain).

    Female.
    Probably every 2nd day, 3 at max because that's when my hair starts to look dirty.
    Every day in summer though

    I wish there was a "when necessary" option.

    I really only bathe when I'm expected to be social, or I can't stand my own smell. I don't take baths anymore because they're just wasteful unless you don't have plumbing.

    I prefer to take long hot showers, and can't really accomplish much with a short shower unless I recently took one within that past couple days. Most the time my issue is "do I have a clean set of clothes that I can switch out?" because putting back on the same clothes after cleaning yourself just feels counterproductive.

    Taking long showers every day, especially multiple times a day, can get expensive unless you take cold showers (then you're a scary person).
    There are no bathrooms, only Zuul.

    Once my hair gets noticeably greasy, usually 3-5 days? That's when it actually starts bugging me. Male.

    I can't go more than two days without a shower.

    It really really depends on my level of involvement in my current activities. Under normal circumstances, I shower every day. There are times though when I go batshit crazy marathon mode and don't shower at all for a week or more. Mainly with certain video game releases. With some games, I play 18+ hours per day when they first come out. And I continue this behavior until I have 100% complete, or if that is not applicable, until I am satisfied.

    Let's just say that when Halo 4 came out, I got it at midnight, and I'd beaten it before anyone else in my house had woken up. I now have every achievement in the game, minus a few that won't be possible for a few more weeks.

    My longest point of not showering was probably a couple months before Gears of War 2 came out. I did the math, and to get the Seriously achievement before Gears 2, I'd need to get like 200 kills a day. I probably didn't shower for at least 10 days. I was playing so hardcore at that point I'm worried I probably did permanent damage to my body.

    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    Only shower once a week. Besides the underarms, I don't wash anything else before the weekend.

    I don't see any point in showering with the exception of the case where I actually smell, which shouldn't happen as I'm not some construction worker nor do I work out.

    I love baths. I like showers too, but you can't read in the shower. I'd take one or the other at least once a day, like I already do.

    Also, I have long blonde hair and it really looks and feels gross to me if I don't wash it every day (even though my husband, mom, etc, say there is no difference). :S

    I'd still do it every day because it helps my back. I clean myself once a day, but I shower two to three times if necessary.

    I usually take baths just to smell nice for my classes. I use Old Spice soap so I smell super good lol, I like to keep that scent.

    Uhhhh. I'd probably continue to shower for each day I have to go out, but if I'm staying home and I had a really long day and nothing to do the next day I might take a day off.

    At the moment, and especially in winter, I bathe at least 2 times per day.
    Simply because...well...taking a warm bath is just amazing.
