When I was a child, I used to resent the fact that women had to wash twice a day, morning and evening. Men, on the other hand, didn't need to. The idea was that a woman received a man's sperm and, like any receptacle, her vagina needed to be emptied of the "unclean stuff". Of course, people no longer think like this, but still, a woman who doesn't wash twice a day is frowned on. I resented the implication that a woman was unclean. Nowadays though, I've come to enjoy bathing twice a day. Short of a massage, nothing feels better than a well-scrubbed, oiled and perfumed body, ummmm.
