Eating oranges in the shower is really weird, but kind of brilliant

What’s the worst part about eating an orange? The mess, of course!

It’s sticky and juicy and your hands end up smelling like oranges for hours afterward, which sounds nice in theory, but gets bad quickly.

Now there is a solution to this serious issue. The subreddit (of course) ShowerOrange is dedicated to all geniuses who actually eat oranges in the shower.

The page was created over a year ago after someone mentioned that they eat oranges in the shower on a thread called “What’s something unconventional everyone should try out?”.

The original poster explained that he first learned this strategy from a youth counsellor in Italy and describes it as such:

“Well just think about it. Tearing apart a cold fresh orange with your bare hands, just letting the juices run over your body. Not worrying if your going to get sticky, or anything. Just ripping it in half, and tearing into it with your teeth like a savage cannibal who hasnt eaten in a week! This is the most carnal, ferocious, liberating thing a man can do”

People jumped on this unconventional bandwagon and thus, ShowerOrange was born. People began posting their own experiences of eating oranges in the shower, taking part in this liberating act.

(P.S. No. No one eats the peel. That’s weird.)

Guys, what? Is this a thing? Stop doing this.

Clearly, this is changing people’s lives for the better. It’s as if they’ve been asleep all their lives, but have just now woken up. But, if you’re thinking of posting your own shower orange-eating photos, the subreddit has some important rules:

  1. No one wants to see your orange juice covered genitalia.

  2. ONLY oranges, clementines, tangerines and blood oranges. Other citrus fruits are strictly prohibited (stay away, grapefruit).

  3. C’mon, be nice.

TBH, this sounds like a great idea. A little weird, yes, but actually pretty brilliant.

But please, stop eating the peel. That’s gross.
