So random question for the guys of the escapists . Do you guys take Baths? Not Showers , but Baths . Maybe with bubbles , maybe without .I ask this because i personally know many women who love to take baths . But not a single guy who does . So i bring the question to you guys of the escapists.

As for me i HATE taking a bath . But i dislike water in the first place . I take showers purely for hygienic purposes , but dread ever moment of it . So a bath is a big no no for me .

Your turn

No thanks, it seems a bit counterproductive to try to wash myself in my own filth. Ok, that's an exaggeration perhaps, but I agree, I don't at all feel comfortable in a bath and the last time I took one was years ago.

That's it - we're not friends any more. I don't associate with water fanboys.

:p

OT: I don't take baths. Never really had a bath until way later in my life at which point I couldn't see the appeal. Shower 4 life, yo!

I used to have baths all the time, but that was only because the shower was broken.

Since it's been fixed I haven't had a single bath. It's quicker to shower, so what's the point?p

Since I am too tall for our bath, I take showers. I used to take baths back when we lived in a place with a good sized tub, though. They can be very relaxing.

Baths take too long to prepare and use an ungodly amount of water, plus you know, the stewing in your own filth part.


Baths are great when you have muscles pains or you just really need to relax, other than that, a shower every time.

Once every few years, after a hard day at work, i think "Hey, you know what'd be awesome? A nice warm bath and a cold beer!"

So i run the bath, get it to a nice temperature, climb in, settle down, and think "Ah this is nice... what now?" Everythings wet and i'm too clumsy to risk reading a book or playing a game or something, so... A few minutes later i get bored enough to remember why i never take baths.

So no, i don't really take baths, every now and then i forget the reasons and give it a go, but really the idea of lying in my bathroom without entertainment does not really appeal.

If I just want to relax and/or sooth any aches and pains I may have, then sure.

Not a regular occurrence though, just takes too long.

Why not?
I love baths ... not for hygienic purposes but more for relaxation.
Floating/sitting in a tub full of water is pretty relaxing for me.

For hygiene I just take a shower, but in a bath I can let my mind wonder off.
Although I haven't taken one in ages.

... hopefully soon I shall move to a place with a bath. :D

Showers. For one thing, you try settling down for a relaxing soak when you live with two other people and only have one bathroom.

People gotta piss, it's not fair to deny them that just so you can lie about in warm water.

Shower! Bath seems like a waste of water. I know some people share the same bathtub water with their whole family, but it seems icky to me.

I have baths around once or twice a week (usually when I'm very dirty from gardening or have just done a lot of exercise). I definitely prefer them to showers but they're a bit inconvenient to prepare.

When I was but a wee sprout I took baths all the time, typically with one or more stuffed animals. Not no more though. The baths, I mean.

I just enjoy the feeling of rinsing way more than soaking.

I rarely bath, it takes longer and getting out of a bath takes more willpower than I can muster a lot of the time. That said, they're pretty good after a festival or something, but I'd rather have a quick shower then lounge on the sofa.

I quite enjoy a bath if I'm not actually that dirty, especially if the water is nice and cold. If I'm really dirty though, it's gotta be a shower.

I very rarely have a bath, never have the time for it. It's relaxing, but never any time or privacy that is required for one.

Shower most days for hygeine reasons thuogh.

Seeing how I don't have a shower in this house, I do take bath and I LOVE IT! That is if the water is the right temperature (I prefer hot that other people don't have but not too hot that it hurt/ burn my skin)! Taking bath is probably rank second compared to liking to having a good sleep.
