I'm told that's the case.

Re: Do men take longer ...

I think it depends on the individual - not on their sex

Re: Do men take longer ...

I sometimes shave in the shower (my Chin ), if I do it tends to be one that's worth my while rather than just a quick scrape. So it can take a bit longer. But then it only takes about 30 seconds to dry my hair, so, I win every time

Men are quicker - do not need 3 types of exfoliating body rub/scrub and at least 2 types of shampoo & conditioner!

...AND we use less towels!

Re: Do men take longer ...

I can only vote based on me and MrsJim and she definitely takes a lot longer. God help me if I want a shower after her as there'll be no hot water left!

I take a lot longer in the bath though as she prefers a shower.

Re: Do men take longer ...

I'd say I take longer than my wife but then again she takes forever to get ready after the shower

Re: Do men take longer ...

I take longer than my wife because I shave in the shower, while she darts in & out to ensure the water doesn't make her hair frizzy.

It's amazing how a thread about showers has degenerated into such filth

Re: Do men take longer ...

In my (limited!) experience, men take forever But I've answered other, because as far as I can tell, it's not because they have more to do!!

I think it's something to do with standing there for ages on end not doing anything and letting stuff just wash over them

Over to you Gibbo
