Dear lord people, take 5 minutes and wash yourselves you filthy animals.
You sound like my daughter who is obcessive compulsive about showering and seems to think she needs at least two and sometimes three showers a day,just sitting doing nothing all day has her feeling like shes covered in dirt and stinks,strikes me as some form of delusion.She half heartedly assures us that she doesnt have a form of Mysophobia.
Compulsive as this behaviour may be i always wonder why she never changes her bed sheets and will wait till mom changes them perhaps once every couple of weeks

You sound like my ex-girlfriend who always insisted she didn't need to shower because she "didn't do anything today." Guess what? She smelled, and that's why I married someone else

The human body is a machine with its own kind of soot and it builds up on you over the course of a day. The world is generally dirty too, and unless you're in a sealed environment you collect all sorts of nasty stuff on your skin, such as germs, dust, trash, allergens, particulates, gunk from people coughing and sneezing or just breathing, engine exhaust, pollen, soot, microscopic excrement, hell sweat has urine in it. You're not as clean as you think you are.

I'm not averse to roughing it after all I was a Boy Scout and I went camping plenty of times, a few Summer trips I went for 2 week stints without showering. I know what being dirty is. But in modern times there really is no excuse to not hop in a shower for 5 minutes to wash off the funk of the day before bed. You could skip the morning one but not showering AT ALL is unsanitary or at the very least lazy. It's a modern convenience that everyone on this board has and should take advantage of before settling down to sleep in a nice, soft pile of your daily gross.

Yes it is More than fine to take it once a night, or every Other Night. Unless you work in a pig farm, really how bad can you smell?

Gotta shower everyday before the evening cocktail hour to wash off the dead skin and bacteria.......It's the bacteria that causes the stink.....Then, the next morning, I spray my feet and underarms with a 50% solution of rubbing alcohol scented with some "British Sterling" cologne.....Feet and underarms always stay "fresh"....(a trick I learned from constant travelling when I was a working stiff)...

You should have a no 2 once a day, first thing.

If you don't, your diet is probably not good.
Not necessarily. I've never been on that morning schedule.

What the heck are people eating that causes them to stink all of the time?

Sweat contains uric acid, not urine. While we all perspire all of the time, we don't all drip sweat. Not everyone has to leave the house on a daily basis. People who live in a rural area don't have to necessarily put up with people sneezing on them. Pollen? You're worried about pollen? I have anhidrosis and very dry skin. I don't need to shower daily. I can wash my face, genitals or feet without taking a shower. I haven't had a problem with pit odor for more than 20 years.

Have you considered seeing someone about your OCD?

I think I see why your ex-girlfriend didn't want to marry you.

It's necessary for me to shower every morning.

Keep the cooter clean at least:

Two women were walking around somewhere in Nevada on a blisteringly-hot sunny day. They were looking for a way to cool off a little. They passed a prostitute eating watermelon on the porch of a whorehouse without any panties on, so they asked her if she was any cooler by not wearing any panties.

The pantyless hooker replied, "Well I don't know if I am any cooler but it sure does keep the flies off my watermelon!"
