Think I did a month or two a couple years ago, I wasn't keeping track but it was a long time. I try to be a lot better with that stuff nowadays, unclean means unhappy, it's like brushing your teeth but less permanent
When I was a kid i'd go the whole week sometimes, but as soon as I started middle school I usually took one every other day, four days without tops once in a blue moon. >>4651>One day
fuck off mate (ಠ ∩ಠ)>>4652
yeah, being dirty is somewhat uncomfortable but I just let myself be
whenever I clean myself, I get a weird obsession with cleaning everything around me so showering myself entails a lot of other tasks that I'd rather not do when feelin lazy>>4653
dunno if it counts as a kid, I'm pretty sure that most people were pigs in their childhoods
I've gone a week or so when camping. Don't remember when I was a kid. In normal life, around 4 days is my max before I can smell my own stench. Still a college student so I can't go too far with it.
Seven days. It got to that wonderful point where one day, my hair had gotten so greasy that it actually got LESS greasy. Good times.
10 days is my longest record. But it's pretty common for me to go 4 days at a time. My hair is starting to get really long again so I'll probably start making sure to shower at least every other day. My dandruff has been getting out of control.
like 4 days
my hair gets so greasy i cant concentrate
Probably around two weeks.
There's a certain appeal in accumulating a layer of grime, but I do make sure to shower when I have to interact with other people.
It was when all the bad things were happening to me at once and I didn't have any decent emotional support.
Now a days I shower every other day because I don't like the feeling of greasy hair.
I once went two months because I liked the smell.I used to always do that, but now I take a bath almost everyday.Is also like to add that if you don't wash your hair for a few weeks in a pony tail it will stay stuck together when you take the hair band off.
About 2-3 months, but I washed my hair, face and neck every morning.
It was pretty much the same since I dont sweat. To this day I dont even need deodorant.
Probably 2 weeks. Depression is a bitch and being dirty makes me even more depressed and the cycle just continued. Didn't even wanna look at myself in the mirror.
please wash your balls regularly. depression is an explanation but not an excuse
a month and a half
it was terrible
2 months I guess? Even when I was still in school I would bathe once in 2 weeks
did you not completely finish reading what I said
I still clean myself, and do so regularly, just not via a shower or bath, and there's nothing wrong with that
You don't use soap. Also, what's a flannel? Like a flannel shirt?
I don't like soap, when I apply it to my skin it feels like my skin is a croissant and it's falling off (not actually falling off, but I'm not really too sure how to describe it), and I can't imagine soap is too good to be rubbing on my skin in this day and age
A flannel, wash cloth, washcloth, wash rag, face-washer (Australian) or face cloth is a small square about the width of a hand towel, and is used by wetting, applying soap to the towel, and then using the towel to apply the soap to skin. This increases abrasion, and can remove dead skin cells from the skin more effectively than just manual application and rubbing of soap. In some parts of the world, washing mitts are used for this purpose.
Get help for your sensitivity issues.
I don't know for sure why this is the case for me, I wager my SPD has something to do with it
any suggestions as to how I can overcome it
Here's how I would do it. Cover yourself head to toe in soap. No matter how much you don't like it, just do it. Stay like that for an hour. You could read a book or just lie down and wait. Maybe take a nap. When you're done, soak in a bath for however long you can stand. Do this every day until you get used to the sensation. Then start washing the normal way. There's nothing wrong with being a croissant. Also, use a loofah/sponge. Don't just rub a bar of soap on yourself directly. Make lather. Maybe masturbate during this to associate the sensation with pleasure.
Don't give up anon.
here. been a few days more than usual again. maybe 3-4. not feelings that great guys
Use body lotion/shower gel instead of soap, it is much more comfortable to apply and it leaves you smelling better (in comparison) to soap.

I didn't bathed for 2+ weeks recently. There is no hot water for a long period in my country and also I often fall in really nasty state of mind when I don't even care about anything and don't feel anything and I just don't have any energy to bother on anything at all. I don't care how I look or feel, sometimes I even think the dirtier I get the better my physical appearance fits me. Is this something to be worried about? Cause I feel like that too often (almost always to be fair).
I always was like that. Everything was even worse when I was a kid cause I remember not bathing for so long that I started getting inflammations and horrible itch.
I've gone months without showering before. My longest record is probably 4 months. All those NSFW stories about wanting to smell a stinky NEET's underwear, take in her body odor and sniff her genitals are strange to me, because no, you don't. After a certain point, things don't smell like marshmallows or strawberries with a hint of sweat. Things get rancid and musty, with only a little bit of sweetness, almost like onions. Humans are animals, and animals, when given enough time, do not have pleasant smells.
When you never leave your room and suffer from depression, it's not hard for this to happen. There's no one to shame you into taking care of yourself. Also, my heater broke, and getting it fixed would take too much energy. Going over yourself in freezing cold water isn't fun.
Nowadays, I try to shower daily. I don't always have enough energy to shower for 30+ minutes, so I like to take shorter showers as the days go on and my motivation drops, with maybe a long shower if I feel particularly dirty. I don't really go out, so I rarely get dirty enough to need long showers or go beyond basic up-keep, anyway. Using a shower gel I really like the smell of has helped immensely. Also, running a wet, soapy loofah over my skin makes it easier to get used to the cold water than just pointing the shower head at myself.
I've never had rashes on my body or anything from not showering, so I guess I'm lucky. If I didn't sweat or smell at all, I would probably never shower.
>I don't like soap, when I apply it to my skin it feels like my skin is a croissant and it's falling off >dead skin cells
i know what you mean. if you're not a shower maniac (that's what i call normfags who pretend they're close to self-intoxication if they don't shower AT LEAST once/24h), the buildup of dead skin cells is very much tangible, to the point that if you're starting to get, say, "somewhat unhealthy" dirty (I would say 1 month, in winter, without ever going out –it's much worse depending on the sweating and/or exposure to outside particles– and changing clothes once/w, you can clean yourself up with the "dry shower" technique, with a slightly abrasive towel/brush, or even by rubbing your palms against your skin.
btw, if at that point you have an exceptional social opportunity that you dont want/cant miss, the only way to return to a near-zero dead skin level, is to abundantly use soap in the shower, let it do its thing for 5 minutes, rince vigourously, get out, use a large towel to rub your skin, it will remove almost all dead cells, and then go back and take a normal 10 min shower to wash it all away. And voila ! good as new !
never heard the saying that 80% of all dust in your house is coming from your own body ?
I noticed that the smell, apart from intimate areas where it only worsens with time, starts to wear off after a period ranging from 3 to 5 days. I think that's why people who need to maintain social acceptance shower everyday or every other day, because they never get past this short period.
The maximum for me might have been a month, on a very low moment in my life. During my neet years I would sometimes go a week without a bath, and only very few times more than that, because after a week my skin and my hair would feel uncomfortable and itchy and give me trouble when sleeping.>>5274
Are you sure that is the smell that goes away, and is not just your nose that gets used to it and filters it out so it can focus on other smells. I’ve been with many people that didn’t shower and I can tell you they all confidently believed and assured others that they didn’t smell bad, but I can also confidently tell you they were all wrong and I could tell they were near while still meters away. And the stink lingers in enclosed spaces.
I can smell this thread already
have you tried heating up water in a pot on the stove?
