I'm talking about consciously choosing not to shower, not being stuck out in the woods on a boy scout trip or something. And no, golden showers don't count.
Mine was probably a week and a half. It was about 2 years ago and I had just moved and started a new job, so I was working a lot, moving, etc. and I just had more important things to do... so I just sucked it up for a little bit. I don't think I smelled THAT bad since no one said anything to me. When I finally got around to it, I gave myself the deluxe scrubdown treatment, using Comet and a plastic scrubbrush.
I did perform some "routine maintainance," cleaning some of the more private areas, since they tend to get stinky a little more easily. I also employed the "Puerto Rican shower" technique (no offense) by dousing myself with cologne. These are essential if you want to get the most out of not showering, while avoiding rashes and strange looks.

Haha.... Yopu are right. No wonder he never get any girls...
I had a classmate aswell back in highschool. He did the same and he was a pretty big guy about 250lbs. And he always was swetting like a pig during gym class. And instead of taking a shower he used his deoderant. And a mixture between a fragrance and swet is even worse then just the swet. He stinked!!

About a week - at Roskilde Festival.
Seriously - the line at the bath stalls are too freaking long to even bother standing in line. I saw someone get in line once, and when I walked past the line a few hours later, he was only just getting to entrance
Nevermind that I live less than a mile from the Festival site - what's the fun in going to a festival and then every night walk home & sleep, eat & shower?

Me, like..5-6 days..
I bet nobody has ever beaten William Sampson's record of lasting without showering. This Canadian while in a Saudi Jail did not take a shower for a little over 2 years to proclaim his constitutional rights to live. When he was finally released he stated that as he took a shower there was like a 2 inch thick slime of dark grey sludge covering all over the floor and like blocking the drainage.

I went a few days a couple years ago on a camping trip in Banff. But since that doesn't count, the longest I've gone without showering is probably 2 days, when I'm traveling international or something. I'm a shower and shave freak. I shower every morning and shave pretty hard. I hate facial hair and I hate not being able to shower.

During basic training we had to go through what they called a "field week" which took place in the middle of the desert. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't take a shower for a whole week I felt so disgusting :P

An odd topic, but nonetheless, 2 days. That is, if swimming in a chlorine pool doesn't count. I believe it was because it was summer, and I was swimming almost every day. Working also, so I never got around to it. At 5'9 and 115 pounds, I don't sweat profusely, as I don't get overheated all that much, so it wasn't that big of a deal.
