42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower - 7 Percent Never Bathe

PISCATAWAY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash) -- Urine trouble now. According to a new survey, at least four out of every 10 Americans pee while taking a shower.

According to a shower survey sponsored by VertiSpa, 42 percent urinate while bathing, certainly pissing off the 58 percent who don't.

That's not the only stat splashed from the shower study. The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water.

-- 52 percent of Americans sing in the shower, with "Singin' In The Rain" being the top tune.

-- 53 percent of people shower in the morning, while 29 percent wait until evening.

-- Finally, the scariest stat of all: 7 percent of Americans claim they never bathe at all.

"The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water. "


Mine's hotter but uses FAR less than 50 gallons. If accurate, that's a ridiculous amount of wasted water!

I'd always been told, and read, that a drawn bath used more water than a shower. Methinks these stats are offbase.

Nothing so underrated as a hot shower and a good pee...at the same time. (For men only; ladies, do not try this at home.)

Uh oh! If the French ever find out what "bathe" means, and what a "shower" is, we'll never hear the end of this from them!

If I pay for the water and I enjoy the water, who is to say it's wasted?

Once you drill the Kalifornia Water Nazi restrictor plug outta the back of the shower head, it will flow plenty of water.

ELAINE: Mmm, what happened?

GEORGE: Nothing, I... said it was a little problem.

ELAINE: Yeah? What was it?

GEORGE (defensive): Well...I was in the locker room showering, and I...I had to go, so...

JERRY: Here we go.

GEORGE: Anyway, I think the guy in the shower opposite saw me. He gave me a dirty look.

ELAINE: You went...in the shower?

GEORGE: Yeah, so what? I'm not the only one!

Those dirty, stinking liars.

I got 'em all beat, I can pee, brush my teeth and shave whilst showering and have.

If I could figure a way to do the laundry in there, I'd be the model of efficiency.

And yet polls show that at least 35% of Americans are Democrats.

How exactly does one "waste" water? It starts as dirty water on the earth, is clarified, is used in the shower, is returned as dirty water to the earth. Water clarification and purification processing capacity can be wasted, but this process DOES NOT waste water.....

Depending on how the question was asked, I may actually be part of that 7%. While I never bathe, I do shower daily.

I'm sure michael moore falls into the 7%. At 350+ lbs, he probably cannot find a bathtub or shower large enough to fit into.

"At least 98% of the French pee while in the tub."

Lewis Grizzard had a great line about taking baths:

"The shower is the greatest invention. I don't like to take a bath. I don't like to wash my face in the water I've been sitting in."

The 7% figure I believe is quite low. Looking around Boston and basing it on percentages I would say 20% of the Democrats never bath.
Michael Moore probably never baths over twice a month and only does that much because it goes to getting next to him!

Make that 'unnecessary'.

I certainly have no issues with anyone paying for whatever they want to pay for, but for me, a 50-gallon shower is extremely excessive.

By pissing it away?


No, you're right - I changed it to 'personally unnecesary', meaning I don't care what other people do with their showering habits.

42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower should read 42 Percent Of Americans admit they Pee In The Shower.

Sorry, I think the number is more like 95% (men and women & I should know, I am a woman who pees in her own shower, but never, ever in someone else's), the 5% who don't are rather anal (or unrinal?) about bodily functions.
