Why Are Westerners Afraid of Baths?

Being Japanese, baths are a part of my daily routine. It allows me to de-stress and detox my body. Along with it's multiple health benefits, such as preventing dementia, it allows a time for me to clean out my thoughts, and relax.

>baths r gross!! you literally sit in your own filth!!
If you're SO dirty that taking a bath makes the water "filthy" then lmfao. Your personal hygiene needs some work. If it really bothers you THAT much, then just shower off after or beforehand.

        this is the complete opposite asians lack a the gene that break down a certain bacteria that causes bo ie. asian people dont smell like we smell

        Other races say white people smell like wet dogs. You just like your own smell and think it's good.

        The reality is different races have different smells, but generally you can’t smell your own races distinct scent. People describe white people as smelling like wet dogs or rotten milk, black props smelling like sulfur or rotten eggs.

        It also seems some people can’t smell these racial scents at all, and some people smell it stronger than others. There are some poor explanations of why these smells occur (people like to attribute it to some environmental factor like diet or laundry detergent) but it’s much more likely it’s about some difference in oil production in the skin.

        It’s not true at all that Asians don’t smell, it’s some meme pop science, they just don’t produce a certain type of sweaty smell, but this isn’t the type of smell of ethnic characteristic but more just general bad sweaty smell.

        I am hypersensitive to these smells so it’s hard for me to imagine how people live together with someone of a different race, because the odor is so strong to me, where I know other people who are unable to smell it.

            Asians smell a lot like wet grass and rust to me, so makes sense.

            I’m unable to smell it. But get told by other races that I smell good.

            It's so strange, I know many other people who are unable to smell it, some who only smell it if the person already stinks (they realize that the stinks of different people smell different), and others like me who its like constant smell unless they have perfect hygiene and cover it up with some scents.

      I never got the shower thing myself -- all showers are cold showers the moment you turn the water off and you're standing there drenched.

      This -- lie back in a hot bath with a good book. When the water starts to get cool, that's the time to stop reading and start washing.

      >detox
      Shut the fuck up, moron gay. On topic, I take a bath when I'm sick and my body can't decide if it is cold or warm, and I break out in sweats. It's nice to finally get a equilibrium.

      Yes, also good for sweating out a cold. Add Eucalyptus oil to help steam the nose clean.

    Japanese and Westerners do not take baths the same way. Japanese people take baths after having showered and washed themselves and use the bath for relaxation. Westerners would use a bath strictly to clean themselves, as an alternative to showering.
    The actual equivalent in the west are hot tubs.

    Op, that's not a bath in Japan. Baths in Japan are automated and fill from the bottom up.

      How do you fit bathtime into your day?

      just like anything a grown ass man does- you make the time. you can pay bills from your phone in a bath. do you clean your vehicle obsessively because of work? take a bath after giving your car a bath. you have time you need to realize it. you sound like you dont do well at relaxing, and should probably focus on that.
