We are hosting my husband’s friend and his girlfriend in our apartment with one bathroom. As we are getting ready to go to breakfast, they decide they need to shower and go together. My husband pointed out that he thought that was kind of awkward for us and I agree.
Do you shower with your SO when staying at other people’s homes? Is it a big deal?

@Pupperoni: I Don’t find this odd..water conservation! When I clicked on this thread I thought you all were showering together..now that would be odd!

Not really…I mean they sleep in the same bed, which is equally synonymous with sex…

@Pupperoni: I don’t see what is so awkward about it. My husband and I don’t make it a point to stay with friends, but if we did we probably would shower together. One could assume we are having sex in or out of the shower on a regular basis. Maybe I am weird though. I wouldn’t think anything of it.
Maybe they were trying to save time?
Wait….I just realized maybe if someone had to use the restroom it may be awkward? Idk. Maybe I am just way too weird.

Hmm I don’t know that I would do it but I also wouldn’t tell them it was awkward (because then it does get awkward).

Bil and SiL do this at family gatherings at mil/fil’s house and I agree, it’s weird. It wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t the only bathroom and they take an hour shower when there are other people waiting for the bathroom. I get it, they have sex but the place for sexy fun time is not when four other people need use of the bathroom too.

I guess it depends. Darling Husband and I usually shower together, but would probably not shower together at a friend’s house unless it was someone who REALLY knew us, in which case they would probably already know that we shower together haha. I would NOT do this when staying with family though, as our families tend to be a bit more conservative and would probably be horrified at the thought hahaha.
If friends were staying with us though, I would have no problem going about my regular routine and showering with Darling Husband.
ETA: Are we assuming they showered together to have sex? Darling Husband and I shower together to save time hahahaha! Apparently I am reading this all wrong. Either way though, I don’t find it weird. I’d rather my friends go have sex in the shower than all over my guest sheets. 😉

I think it’s weird. Mr. S and I shower together at home but would definitely be more prim and proper when we are guests in someone else’s home. But I also don’t think you can say anything about it either unfortunately.

Doesn’t seem like it’s worth the effort to be concerned or uncomfortable about it. If they were having sex in there, maybe, but it doesn’t sound like that’s the issue. And, then I would only find that as uncomfortable as it would make me if my guests had sex in the guestroom. In my case, not very uncomfortable.

They’re dating, we’re all adults and know what’s happened. As friends, no, I think it’s fine. If it were family, then that’d make me feel weird.

I don’t like people staying in my house at all but if it had to happen I wouldn’t care about this. We have many bathrooms though so it wouldn’t impact us and we wouldn’t know.

That’s a bit strange. I mean, it’s not strange enough to worry or say anything but just a “hmm…” situation.

I’ve done it a few times at relatives houses. As long as it’s a private bathroom and there are other bathrooms in the house, I don’t see any big deal.

My SO and I never shower together, we find it uncomfortable, it’s just knees and elbows everywhere, my behind always ends up pressed against the cold tiles and one of us has to freeze while the other one is using the water. No thanks! We tried a few times but we hated it.
But if other people want to do it to use less water or for whatever other reason, I have no problem with it even if they want to do it in my bathroom. But I have big a problem imagining two average-size adults fitting into my tiny shower stall! 🙂
