Shower everyday in the morning without fail. It is a part of South Indian culture for a young man to be clean showered early in the morning and pray to god before starting his daily duties.

My culture has rules for showering too. During major festivals which involves saluting god, we must take bath by rubbing coconut oil all over the body. This must be done before sunrise. Otherwise, its considered inauspicious.

Additionally, Its important to stay fresh while attending classes, so that you do not make your classmates feel uncomfortable with offensive odor. Showering, and then using good scent helps a lot in diminishing body odor.

Spoiler
I Don't care to shower at night. I have slept alone since 1998 and don't want sex till I am married, so why should I care if I smell fresh or not.

This is the way I am, too. I cannot start the day without a shower, and if I've been outside working in the yard or whatever, I shower again when I'm finished with the work.

Depending on the weather here in Oklahoma and on what I've been doing, I might even have to shower more than twice a day!

I prefer to bathe than shower. And I usually do it before I go to bed at night because I am usually barefoot, and by the end of the day I have some pretty dirty feet. LOL

It's called a wet nap or baby wipe. I keep a few in my purse or quick clean-ups of my behind. As for other body parts being dirty - I don't get very dirty sleeping in bed for 7 or 8 hours. (I do wash my face when I get up to get rid of eye goobies).

- Cooking big batches of food everyday, which tends to make me feel sweaty, and often results in bits of food getting on me and cooking smells seeping into my skin and hair
- Keeping up the house: sweeping, dusting, gardening, etc.


I need a shower in the morning
- In order to feel fresh and awake
- To clean up after sex

Wednesday.

j/k

I usually shower in the morning. I understand about wanting to get in between clean sheets feeling clean, and sometimes I take a quick shower at night, too, if it's been a particularly hot day or sometimes for psychological reasons just to wash the day off of me. But my main shower is in the morning to prepare for the day and to wake up. Shower extra in summer after the beach or after exercise.
