Aibu (pretty sure I'm not but am being treated as if I've asked him to fly to the moon and fetch me some moon cheese) to expect dh to have a shower after a three hour mountain treck, before getting in to bed?

Uh, no. YANBU, he is!

I was once told by a male colleague that hardly anyone showered after going to the (in house) gym at lunchtime. Apparently, they used to use the hand dryers to dry the sweat off.

I really think k I am married to an over sized teenager. He's sulked today because I asked him to use dust sheets while painting walls :/

That's pretty rank. Yes he should shower.

YANBU, urgh that's disgusting!
I always jump in the shower after exercising, DP will come back from playing football & lounge on the settee or fanny about in the kitchen stinking the place out, I always yell at him to go for a shower straight away. Getting in bed stinking would be a deal breaker for me!

Gross. I did a 5k at 7am this morning and had to sit with the kids for 20 mins while they had breakfast before I showered and that was plenty long enough. I was stinking.

YANBU. Rank.

But anyway, can't believe he doesn't want to!? A hot shower when you're all sweaty is the best!

I'm definitely at the lax end of MN hygiene standards, but even I have a minimum of a body shower after sweaty exercise. (Hair washing not always practical due to long hair)

YANBU that is gross

Jesus it's just sweat. Does your dh not ocassionally sweat during intercourse! Not to mention other fluids that will get on rhe bed sheets.

EatsShitAndLeaves Tue 11-Apr-17 18:56:59

Ummm it's not just sweat though is it?

It's stale sweat that has had hours and hours for bacteria to feast on it and create a stink....and be beautifully absorbed into the bed clothes - yuck.

OP YANBU - it is smelly teen behaviour

"I was once told by a male colleague that hardly anyone showered after going to the (in house) gym at lunchtime. Apparently, they used to use the hand dryers to dry the sweat off."

This really made me giggle and also made me grateful my place of work doesn't have a gym. Although one guy cycles in and doesn't shower because they are miles away (same site but at least a 10 minute walk) maybe he uses this technique.

It's rank. It smells hideous and it seeps into the bed clothes, and makes the room stink.

ThePigletatwork Tue 11-Apr-17 19:19:45

Oh, I couldn't get into bed all sweaty and grubby.

Viperess Tue 11-Apr-17 19:34:03

Does he often climb a mountain for 3 hours?
Is this a hobby?


He sounds like a teenager.

Surely most adults shower before bed anyway after a day at the office, commuting, having a poo etc . Especially if they expect conjugal rights.

I never shower before bed unless I've done something particularly sweaty/dirty.

EatsShitAndLeaves Tue 11-Apr-17 21:31:43

I shower/bathe when I need to.

I might go 3 days showering in a row.

Then I might not for 3 days.

It depends what I've been doing.

I only wash my hair once a week.

Oh - the clean people will love this grin

supermoon100 Tue 11-Apr-17 21:49:22

I think male sweat is rather sexy. All those pheromones knocking around. But then I'm aware from reading MN that I am most definitely not a clean freak!

LockedOutOfMN Tue 11-Apr-17 21:51:18

Mine tries to do this. hmm

BitOutOfPractice Tue 11-Apr-17 23:49:35

Yanbu op. Definitely not.
