Whew, I just took one in absolute darkness (no lights from under the door), and man was that wicked and stange. Even though there were no lights, it felt like I could see a just a little bit. Technically though there was a tiny LED on my laptop from it charging, but it was insignificant and slightly covered up. When I turned on the lights it was almost like I snapped back to reality.

My bathrooms have always had windows, but it’s not the kind of glass you can see anything through.

The master bathroom in my parents' place had a non-privacy window right above the jacuzzi/bathtub, such that standing up to get out would put you on full display to our next door neighbors.

I can't remember that bathtub ever getting used. Everyone just used the shower.

Gonna try it I think. A bath in the dark would probably be nicer, though.

That's the kind of effect I mean. Glad it seemed to work out for you.

In sufficient darkness, your eyes can adjust to seeing very dim light. But I mean it has to be basically pitch black for an extended period of time, and any significant amount of light is usually enough to break it.

I've showered in the dark maybe once, when the power went out when I had shampoo already in my hair.

Other than that.... No?

You all are nuts. :p

I basically need to shower with the lights on. If its morning, I wait for my eyes to adjust to natural light, but I mostly shower in the evening, with the bathroom light on. If the power's out, too bad.

I am a very clumsy person if I can't see a thing, and I fear having an accident if I try to shower blind.

I've showered a few times since the start of this thread in as dark as the bathroom can be. There is a street light placed such that it shines light directly across our bathroom, so it doesn't get particularly dark. I do prefer lights off now.

I've remembered and tried it but didn't expect my eyes to adjust from a slight creak of light into pretty much full vision. Gonna try at night, I guess.

I showered in the dark once because the power went out. I don't think I could do that on a consistent basis.

once when the power was out for a really long time, yeah... and then another time the power went out on me while i was showering

although one time when i lived in a different house there was an overhead light that was super super dim and i showered under only that. i haven't done anything like it since, but it was really really comfy and pleasant. i dunno if i'd enjoy showering in total darkness, but showering/bathing in a low amount of light sounds actuuuuually really nice

We have a sauna in the house, and very occasionally I like to turn off the bathroom lights and just keep a little bit of light coming from the sauna.
Every time it’s been a nice experience, though my mind doesn’t wander off more than usual.

At least it wasn't the time (or times?) I was showering in the dorms in college and the fire alarm went off.

At least you wouldn't need to escape, being surrounded by water as it was

Been showering in the dark and enjoying it. Though some light always seeps through eventually.

A few times; once or twice after the light in the bathroom broke after I'd already gotten the water going, and once when I had a splitting headache and I was just kinda avoiding bright lights in general.

Not a bad experience by any means, but I still prefer being able to easily see what I'm doing.

Hell yeah! I started doing it around last year.

Unfortunately, my bathroom has a window, so it's hard to do this in the morning for most of the year. And my sister sometimes walks in and turns the lights on :/

Even when I have the lights on, I tend to keep my eyes shut anyway, to keep shampoo and face soap from getting in them.
