Um… I would say that is the rule if I’ve worked out or if I was outside and sweaty all day. But for normal life I go by a 24 hr rule 🙂

ETA: whatever works for you is fine! I wouldn’t worry about “normal” v. “weird”

I like to be spontaneous with that!  I’d only say that a shower is mandatory if I’ve been working out, sweating, or just feel grimey from the day.

I can’t and would not do it after working out or not having showered all day.  I would feel so bogue.  I do like it after a shower but it isn’t mandatory.  I think as long as I have showered that day I am good with it.

Too Much Information WARNING! I can go for sex without a shower, but I usually tell SO no tongue-age down there until I have showered. He always tells me I have nothing to worry about, but I just feel gross unless I have showered before anything oral. Other than that, I say bring it on!

I can’t do anything with ‘morning breath’ I just can’t. Shower or not, doesn’t bother me as long as you are not rank.

I’m a huge fan of the shower before… which usually ends up a combination of the shower and fun all in one cause SO doesn’t like to wait for me to get out of the shower lol.

A shower isn’t a necessity all the time, but I find myself somewhat more enthusiastic if I’m cleaner, lol.  There will be times where I’ll stop in the middle of foreplay to announce I need to shower to shave my nasty hairy legs, and he’ll just laugh and pull me closer.  Thank God he doesn’t mind my pricklies!

I figure we are going to be getting sweaty during sex so we usually shower afterward. Unless of course we are too exhausted. Then we save it for the morning.

Showering isnt what gets to me – its morning breath and morning-ness of being all sticky because I sweat a lot in my sleep!

I don’t think I’ve ever showered beforehand (unless we’re doing it in the shower – then I guess I kind of am).  If you’re going to get all sweaty “doing it”, I just don’t see the benefit of showering beforehand.  But to each their own!

i would never think to shower first. actually, it can kind of throw me for a loop to have just showered, like, i don’t want to get the sheets all wet from my hair, and i’ll just have to get back in the shower to fix my hair after so it doesn’t dry all frizzy
