I once knew a female who said she only needs to shower every 3 days.

I thought it was pretty gross.

I shower everyday once right after I wake up.

So what's acceptable?

It depends on how much you sweat and whatever... I try to have at least the one, but if I get one in the morning and then go out on the night I'll have two

Some people may be able to man 3 days without a shower, but I sweat stupid amounts so I can't really afford too, unless I suddenly like the smell of BO

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

At least daily. I shower and wash my hair daily, and after I exercise, so usually twice a day.

I aim for everyday but often don't bother if I'm not going out on the second day.

I worked in a veterans hospital, they got 2 a week, and were allowed to refuse one. Breathe deep!

This. I couldn't go for more than one day without showering. I feel dirty if I wait too long during the day.

I shower at least every other day, normally everyday though. Sometimes when I'm doing sh*t all I'll go the best part of a week without showering.

All these past tense words.
Did this girl die from bad showering?
This is why we can't have nice things!
#22
I don't sweat much, but my skin and hair gets oily so if I go more than a day without showering I look nasty. Plus I don't feel awake in the morning before showering.
#23
Once every two days is well enough as long as you dind't work out or something like that.
I remember going for over a week wihout a shower when I was a kid.

Every other day, or before a night out. When my schedule is free with no chance of plans though, I don't shower 'till my next event. (Doesn't happen that often, when it does it's lovely to have a wallow in your own filth, a nice little feckin' wallow)

If you dont shower everyday, then be prepared to be known as the smelly kid that doesnt shower.

Once a day at least for me. Sometimes twice. Like, once before I go to school and then if I have a gig, or am going out or whatever, Ill take another one before I leave

Depends entirely on climate, how active I am, etc.

In the (as of yet purely hypothetical) event of me doing a straight week of no exercise in the middle of winter, I'd be fine with not showering for the week. But usually, it varies between daily plus post-exercise during the holidays (IE, now) and every 3 (or 4 if I'm feeling particularly lazy) days during winter when I'm at uni (exercise is strictly limited to walking to/from lectures). I wash my hair every other day invariably though- still manages to get greasy and bad in mid-winter.

my policy: if your going out into public, shower. If not, feel free to be stinky all you want.
This is a good policy.

Personally, I don't tend to shower on days where I end up mowing the lawn or yardwork until after I've finished the lawn or yardwork. But I still shower every day. Once in a while, I'll skip a day but usually not.
#33
daily plus whenever you smell..

I have this relative see, and I met him once on one day, and he stunk to high heavens.

I met im again 2 days later, and he still stunk to high heavens.

I was willing to bet that he hadn't taken a shower or bath in several weeks.

One everyday. No more no less.
Washing your hair too much is bad for it.

Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

In the winter when it's cold and there's minimal physical activity, I usually shower once every 36 hours or so (morning shower one day, night shower the next, for example). However once June rolls around and it starts to thaw out around here (more than 15C), then it's everyday. Doesn't matter when for me, but it's everyday.

At least once a day. Any less than that and I just feel nasty.

I pretty much don't sweat. I can go like three days without showering or even using deodorant and nobody would notice
