Let Me Wash That for You, Honey

If you think showers are just for, well … showering, think again.

It turns out that we use the washroom for everything from a good shag to a place to stash beer.

According to a recent online survey by bathroom product manufacturer Grohe, 22 percent of Americans say they do the down and dirty while having a wash. Of these, more men – 26 percent – say they have sex in the shower compared to 18 percent of women.

But that’s not all.

After the jump, see more about sex in the shower (you know you like it!) and other uses for your shower stall ...

The imagination is also a powerful tool. The top three women that men say they would like to see with a loofah in their shower are Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba and Pamela Anderson. Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp top the list of men that women would like to see steaming up their shower.

America is a nation of mult-taskers, so it comes as no surprise that sex is not the only double duty people pull while lathering up. 20 percent of respondents said they actually clean their showers while washing up, and 17 percent said they brush their teeth.

You say you like to sing? Well, so do 18 percent of those surveyed. The top five favorite songs in the shower are: Singing in the Rain, Amazing Grace, Splish Splash, Hey Jude, and original songs.

More than half of the respondents say they use their time in the shower to contemplate life’s bigger issues, such as career moves, marriage and divorce, and improving their lives overall. But there are those who think a bit more outside of the boxy tub. When asked what other uses they have for the shower, some people gave answers including thawing turkey, and using it as a beer cooler, a playpen for kids and as a spare bed. - Chris Vogel
