Many high schools no longer require students to shower after P.E. class, says the Christian Science Monitor. And many students would rather smell than strip and shower in front of their classmates.
We used to have P.E. every day. Girls complained about ruining their hair in the shower, but we had no choice. I do remember we had to bring our gym suits home once a week to wash them. I tended to forget to put it in the wash, so I’d iron it Monday morning before leaving for school. Gym teacher were impressed at the weekly inspection. I think too much locker room time destroys the sense of smell.
