Revealed! What We Do in the Shower
What do we do in the shower? We think!
That's the word from a nationwide survey of 1,000 U.S. adults conducted by Water Pik Inc. The quick results of the "Behind the Shower Curtain" survey: Women think about their to-do list. Men think about sex.
Once behind that locked bathroom door, a gender divide emerges.
- The survey revealed that 64 percent of women think about their to-do lists in the shower, compared with 48 percent of men. In addition to their chores, women contemplate their problems and their weight, while men think about work, sex and day dreams.
- 66 percent of men admit to showering with another adult for intimacy, compared with 55 percent of women who admit to having an intimate shower.
- While popular opinion says women spend more time in the shower, the survey findings show that men shower an average of only two minutes less than women (14 minutes for women vs. 12 minutes for men).
- 50 percent of moms say they use the shower as a time to escape, compared to only 28 percent of dads and 29 percent of women without children. More than half (53 percent) of moms always feel rushed to get out of the shower to take care of their family, compared to 27 percent of dads.
The top three bathroom pet peeves:
- Low water pressure
- Toothpaste gobs in the sink
