Do You Shower With Your Significant Other?

Lately, this is a topic that has surfaced more frequently than I care to admit. You see, Mr. Bella has taken an informal survey of various friends and co-workers to find out if showering together gets a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Many people agree that it's a no-no because someone always ends up shivering on the non-water flowing side and/or it's just too slippery or time consuming for it to be any fun.

On the affirmative end, others think it's romantic, sexy, and a great way to get those hard-to-reach areas washed. So, what do you think? Whether you're single or in a relationship, do you like a shower buddy or do you prefer to go solo?

Definitely yes! We only have a small shower at home which actually makes it more uncomfortable than not. But we love the togetherness :).

I used to think it would be cute and sexy all the time but now that I live with my bf :ponder: not so much. He'll jump in with me sometimes in the morning when I just want to do a quick in and out, but you can't shower that quickly with a man the size of a linebacker blocking all the hot water. I prefer to co shower when I am not in a rush or on time constraints.

Not all the time but on occasion! Once in a very old house we were renting for a few months the hot water heater didn't work worth anything. We had about 10 min hot water total. Needless to say, we shared showers for about 6 months so that we could both have hot water! LoL

when we're on holiday and whatnot, yah of course, it's romantic and fun but like in the morning before work, i prefer to get in, do my stuff, and get out....plus, he goes to work 2 hours before me...but still

Occasionally, just for fun. I really prefer to be alone in the shower--that's my "me" time!

Unless I'm Nairing, I love it. It make me feel soo Jane to Tarzan-ishh.

I grew up in a drought-prone country, so sharing showers with family members (to save water) was totally natural. Living in North America, shower-time with my man is more sexy than practical...but bath-time must be mine-all-mine - time to relax & reflect solo.

Sometimes... But I prefer a nice long hot shower all to myself!

For fun... but most of the time it's business in the shower. I have certain cleaning/grooming routines that are best achieved solo.

We sometimes shower together, but whenever we do, we always end up fighting over the hot water. It's kind of funny, because he's so much taller than I am, so he blocks all the water and I'm standing there shivering. In the summer, we do it a lot more often.

Every day. We have a shower that has two shower heads and it is a big open area, probably 7'x8'. It's nice we get to talk and nobody is left in the cold.

When we get the chance we do. But we prefer sharing a bath, just cause we can lounge about and no one is without water.

This is a funny topic for me. I almost NEVER shower alone when my husband is home (he travels for a living). If he's already showered that day he'll get in with me and just stand in the corner. Sometimes I want my privacy but most of the time it's endearing.

My hubby takes steamy boiling showers. I prefer cool water. I feel like I have to take another shower after I shower with him because I feel like I have been sweating from the steam in the shower.

When you build a house or redo a bathroom it is GREAT to put 2 showerheads in the shower. No one gets cold! And even when you aren't feeling amorous, it's still a GREAT time saver and great way to catch up on things!

We've been together 17 years and in the beginning, we showered together a lot. Then we decided that for the sake of practicality, we'd each get clean on our own time, for reasons others have mentioned. In fact, we each have our own bathrooms/showers but we meet up in his since we share the handle of the electric toothbrush :) Now, if it's not a "shower to get clean" but a "shower to have fun" that's another story!! ;)

My man asked me this morning if I wanted to join him, but I said no. Saturday morning is my spa time - the things that go on in there shall not be known to man.

Lol, what dootsie said. It's sexy fun but I don't need him to see me scrub my pits. :P So once in a while. I freaking love it.

I can talk to him outside the shower, so the bonding thing doesn't apply. It's sexy time in the shower, so it's quite distracting.

Haven't tried this yet, either, but I like bathroom time as my ALONE time. Unless it's going to lead to more "together time" in the bed, I'm not keen on watching anyone else dig around in places and scrub daily grime off themselves. It might save some water, though.
