As the title goes really. DH has become very shower averse now there is a slight nip in the air, and has confessed to a shower hiatus extending to 12 days confused. Has dispensed with regular full showers in favour of a 'whores wash' in the sink.

Maintains he is clean, I disagree and thinking of picking him up and putting him in the shower. DAILY. Regardless of screams and tantrums.

I'm not BU am I? hmm. Unless in fact is a gremlins and melts???

Wtf is a "whores wash" hmm

And yes I would be pushing him to the shower if he were mine. Bleurgh.

Ask him to put the bins out, then once he's in the garden, turn the hose on him

That's disgusting. He must bloody stink.

Grimy bastard. Fungal infections waiting to happen.

No shower, no sexytime grin

A 'whores wash'. ... Washing of the armpits and nether regions only .... shudder

I DO like the bins and hose combo .....

Is this for real? That's fairly gross. A divorceable offence.

Yuck. I couldn't shower for 10 days after an operation by the end my skin felt itchy was so dirty and my scalp felt sore. Best shower ever at the end!

That's bloody disrespectful to you.

Is he afraid of water, or too lazy to spend 5 mins in the shower, or is your bathroom too chilly for his delicate extremities?

I wouldn't tolerate it.

My DH sometimes does this. Washing his nob in the sink daily does not mean he is clean!
I shove him in as often as possible under the premise of having a splash with the toddler. He doesn't smell though to be fair.

Absolutely for real. Posting on here to show him responses to prove I am now a 'clean freak' and HE is BU

In the sink? How's he getting the arse area? Either poo water is spraying around your bathroom or he isn't getting it at all. And your poor sink!!! Does he throw it in the landfill bleach it afterwards?

Whores wash?? Do explain?confused

But no YANBU. That's gross. Imagine sharing a bed with someone who only washes twice a month, I couldn't do it. It would also kill off our sex life completely.

PinkSquash Mon 03-Oct-16 22:41:21

That is vile.

PoldarksBreeches Mon 03-Oct-16 22:41:21

So only his pits and genitals get sweaty? No dead skin collects in any other crevices? His scalp is self cleaning? His toes have no scum in between them?
Tell him to poke himself in the belly button and sniff his finger. Then see if he thinks he's clean.
I bet he absolutely reeks.

DP sometimes have two showers in a day.

If my DP didn't wash for a few days he wouldn't be getting into our lovely bed with me.

Washing properly once a fortnight is disgusting

OpheIiaBaIIs Mon 03-Oct-16 22:42:10

Grim.

DustyOfSkye Mon 03-Oct-16 22:42:29

Same questions as MrsTerry
Boak.

IsItJustFuck1ngMe Mon 03-Oct-16 22:42:46

Thanks all. My nagging is falling on deaf ears, he's a good guy all round but this 'quirk' is ermmmmmm

GazingAtStars Mon 03-Oct-16 22:43:04

God that's fucking disgusting...what a minger

PoppyPicklesPenguin Mon 03-Oct-16 22:43:19

Whores birth comes from the Latin term cleanus whorus which means to cleans the body in between relations.

Assamassa Mon 03-Oct-16 22:43:31

Eurgh that's fucking gross

Creampastry Mon 03-Oct-16 22:43:54

Disgusting. I wouldn't share a bed with him. Or a sofa.
