Verb form: Se doucher meaning "to take a shower". Yes, it's the same translation as prendre une douche, except this is a pronominal verb.
- I take a shower. Je me douche.
- You are taking a shower. Tu te douches.
- He is taking a shower. Il se douche.
Also, doucher means "to shower". It is conjugated the same way as se doucher in the present, except the "me, te, se...", etc. must be taken out. Doucher, however, is not a pronominal verb.
