I just read the poll and pressed 10+ days because bathing is annoying compared to showering.
2 weeks to a month. And now to gross you all out, I already do this because of faulty plumbing in my house meaning I have no hot water unless I sit for 4 hours to heat it, every day. In winter especially it's horrible since the bathroom is also not heated... so yea.
That said, I do wash the areas I do sweat the most and private areas, and face and legs and hands everyday. Just not whole body. I don't really feel dirty, I don't smell, I don't have dirt over me or something so... why wash?
I'd say every 2 to 3 days. for me. I always just take a shower whenever my hair starts getting greasy which is like every 2 days or so. That's usually my sign that I'm pretty funky. Compared to others that I've smelled, I really don't smell that bad after 2 or 3 days of not taking a shower so for me I really don't see a point in taking a shower every day.

If by the poll you exclusively mean bathing as a pose to showering, then I think the last time I got myself into a bathtub filled with hot water is close to 6months ago, however I shower every day when I wake up, I abosultely cannot stand the greasy hair and dirtyness feeling after getting out of bed, my face is fairly oil-prone as well so that doesn't help, and I love the feeling after fully drying yourself after a hot shower.
When I was at school and college I'd actually take a shower in the morning, and one before bed.
I'm a fairly active guy, I go to the gym 4-5x a week, I hike when I have the free time and during this time of the year I snowboard alot. So I tend to take atleast 1 shower a day (sometimes 2 if I'm really busy.), otherwise I'd feel really icky and disgusting.

Not much that beats just sinking down in a warm bath for up towards an hour.
Close your eyes and smile.
[15:53] <PizzaSHARK> you have such a cute accent! ^_^
If i have work and school + going out. Everyday. If im @ home on holidays inbetween rosters etc every 2-3 days
I shower, at most, 3 times a week. But that's mostly just for the people who are around me.
If I could get away with showering just once a week, I'd probably do it depending on my tolerance for my own human funk.
He who sacrifices his beard for a woman deserves neither.
Awesome, loving the responses so far.
And yeah, I guess I should've been more clear. I know that bathing technically means only taking a bath, but it was intended to mean showering as well.
Once you go troll, you never reroll. -heard on cynicalbrit.com. Epic.
I take a shower every morning when I wake up, and if I plan on going out of the house in the evenings, I take another one.
Monk, I need a monk!!!
I take a shower every morning to wake up. Regardless of what I am doing that day. Plus When I was a kid the only way I would brush my teeth was in the shower so that stuck with me and I still do it.
If there was no social normal of being clean, I still would shower every day as I love showering.
Everyday, I love showers, they make me feel good and clean and I hate feeling dirty.
I don't like being exposed and showering/bathing requires exposure of the utmost. I can't handle it that often and I have to feel like I am being protected. If I feel that any harm could come to me, I won't shower. As an example: In the summer, in the house where it's not sweltering, I wear sweatshirts over my t-shirts and pants. So showering isn't really conducive to my stability, mentally.
If I can get away with it, I'll go a week, but usually I have to present myself, so the most I can get away with is 3ish days or so. As others have stated I make sure I don't smell and such, but I don't have to worry about greasy hair because I don't have any. I'm not overly active and I'm rather small; I don't sweat much and I make sure to wear deodorant.
it can vary from every other day to once or twice a day for me
Bathing/showering is often the best part of the day, if you have a slow start to your day it helps get you going, if you are having trouble unwinding at the end of the night it relaxes you. Who wouldn't want to bathe daily?
