OFFENBACH - Six out of 10 men in Germany do not shower daily, but at least those six change their underpants daily, according to a new survey published this week.

That was the national average, with over 70 percent of younger males under age 34 showering and changing knickers daily. But only 16 percent of men over 55 bother to bathe daily or put on fresh underwear.

The figures for German women show a similar age discrepancy, with over 80 percent of younger women bathing and cladding themselves with clean undergarments on a daily basis. But more than 80 percent of women over 55 go more than a day without doing so.

Some five percent of all men and two percent of women in Germany change their knickers just once a week, according to the survey by the Marplan Institute in Offenbach.
