The title says it all. For me, I think it's three days. Back then when I was really sick with fever, my mother would not let me shower until I got better.

Other than that, occasionally I took a break from showering daily if I had to undergo gua-sha. Usually, after performing gua-sha on someone else, or being gua-sha-ed by other people, you are strongly discouraged from taking a shower.

Now that it's winter season again, I decide to skip shower once every few weeks but I cannot do so. I feel terrible without shower. So I still shower/bath everyday.

So that's me. What about you? :amuse

Five days. Went to camp up north to Exmouth, Western Australia, and didn't shower once. xDD But... Does swimming count as showering??

>__< I don't think swimming counts as showering. Swimming makes my body feels like clorine. Yuck.

Plus, it doesn't require any body shampoo, hair shampoo (it actually destroy my hair), or soap. So it doesn't count.

Re: What Is The Longest Time That You've Been Without Showering?

Hmm, my hair is extremely thin & gets oily really quickly so I have to shower every single day. But before the oiliness brought on by puberty, the longest I went was 3 days when I was in elementary school. No one seemed to notice...

I take it that you do not cheat on your country flag. So taking into account that you are from The Philippines, I will not even blame you for taking shower 3 times a day. It does get oily REALLY quickly especially in hot weather condition.

Re: What Is The Longest Time That You've Been Without Showering?

one week for me. back in vail. in the middle of my august vacation (year round school, my track had August, December, and April off) and my parents wouldn't let me go over to the saguaro national park (the only good place in 15 miles to skate), so i went on strike. biking outside, in the middle of a 105-112 degree heatwave, just to make myself as smelly as possible XD I'm actually surprised they lasted that long. (that is to say they let me go to the park, and i started bathing again.)

Haha, yes you're right. I normally take showers once a day but during the summer it usually goes to 2 -3 times a day. :D

But the thing is, I kinda did cheat on my flag. I was born & raised in Southern California and have only been to the Philippines a few times when I was young. But I did notice that Filipinos usually have thin hair that gets oily in... a minute.

What a genius idea. :nuts

We should ask all Americans to stop showering and gather in front of the white house until Bush retires immediately. Or Americans can have anti-shower rally to campaign for AIDS donation for example.

"Until you send medicines and money to Africa, we will not shower." Imagine the stink of 100k people who do not shower for a week. Wow.

while i think that, with help from micheal moore, it is possible... it wouldnt work. two basic flaws in it: the white house is air conditioned, and protected from chemicle attacks, so the smell prolly wouldn't make it threw. the other thing... cheny would be hidden away in a bunker, rice is prolly back on the homeworld of the klingons, and bush will be on vacation again. and just for the record, since i dont talk to you, i'm american born and raised. i just love swaziland's name.

about 3 and a half days. i hate to travel from the US to the philippines which is about 2 and a half days. because of the stupid flight delays and long stopovers. :rant once in the philippines it was really late already and i was really tired so i slept and didn't get to take a shower til the next day.

Lots of travelling... very tired :( and no shower :scry

A week. It's so happens that one day the bathroom in the place that I stay (my relative's house) got many maggots lurked. I don't know how the hell that might happened, and I hate maggots. They creeps me out. So I stayed away from the bathroom until the maggots all cleared. I still washed my face and brushed my teeth outside though (got extra spare) so people may not notice that I didn't take a bath for a week. :p

This topic is so interesting. :XD
The longest i've been without showering was 2 weeks. It was back in high school during the long holiday, my friends and i made a bet who could stand not showering the longest. Of course, there was money involved, but it's not the money, it's knowing that you can do something that your friends couldnt is the main motivation.
I won because the last guy got into an argument with his girlfriend about that bet. :XD
I feel so icky remembering the shower i took after winning that money. :XD :XD :XD

It's a bet made without anyone outside of my division knowing, especially not my boss. :D

Um...two days, but because we were camping and at the there were swarms of ants all over the floor. It didn't go to well with me even with shoes on...So I went without for a couple days..
But now I just HAVE to shower EVERY day.
