People are expected to be comfortable being naked around people of their own gender because it's assumed that there's zero chance of sexual attraction. Obviously this is false, but ignoring any queer individuals, just look at all the straight old men in locker rooms. They really don't care. After more time, I'm assuming you, too, will get used to traditional locker room design and become more comfortable and think it's normal for them to be designed that way. You could prob make some argument for building trust among men, etc, if you wanted to...

" just look at all the straight old men in locker rooms. They really don't care."

That right there. They. Don't. Give. A. Fuck.

One the YMCA's in my town basically has a naked lounge area in the men's change room. Big screen TV, comfy and reclining chairs and tables. The old guys just sit around buck ass naked. Aside from socializing, they are appear to be trying to dry off all of their nooks and crannies since they go out of their way to spread their legs: http://image1.masterfile.com/em_w/03/37/84/695-03378497em.jpg

Some of them even nap: http://image1.masterfile.com/em_w/03/37/94/695-03379412w.jpg

I haven't been there in years, but I hope I'm never comfortable in there.

Yeah, even if you know gay people exist, big deal. For me, the only people who are even gonna be interested are guys who are into bears. Even then, what are they gonna do about it? So long as people respect my personal space it's all good.

Is there such a thing as a unisex locker room/changing room?

Heard rumors about that to be the case in the military. At least in the Swedish military.

Hostels will do it. You'll get private shower stalls but the sink area is all genders. It's awesome.

Yes, we have a pool with one here in Toronto. The idea was to make it simpler for families with single parents or just with only 1 parent available. There are lockers for everyone that you can lock your stuff in and then there are several large enclosed stalls for changing inside. Changing stalls could easily accommodate a family of 5 if need be or a single adult is fine since you only need it for like 30 seconds. It is expected that each person showers with a bathing suit on.

Huh. The only real comparison I have there was that hilarious locker room in my high school. The girl's locker room was, on one side, individal showers with dressing areas in front with a curtain closing off each area, and on the other side individual toilet stalls. I guess I just kind of got the impression that that difference in design was normal. Good to know.

Because doing a better job would probably cost more money. It's all about the pennies not the penis.

And easier/less time consuming to clean and maintain.

Which means... Less money to pay to whoever cleans them!

Nudity isn't really a big deal in a large part of the world like it is in America. Families take baths together in Japan, there are nude women in advertising in Germany and whatnot. I don't really know where I'm going with this, but I felt uncomfortable at first being around so many naked people, but then I got used to it cause I realized no one give a shit as long as you're not staring.

thats what i hate about america. they are too scared of the human body. it has to do a lot with the religious crowd and the new generation of prude parents who complain, and overprotect their kids. if your son sees a tit, he isn't gonna become a sex crazed monster. if i could id be naked right now(which i am)

It happened to me. My parents were extremely scared for some reason that I'd see a tit and go on a crazed sex spree. I didn't even know women had nipples until I was about 10. Now I'm an adult, and seeing any nudity of the opposite sex with others around makes my face completely red. For some reason I can't shake the anxiety:/

Shenanigans? What kind of shenanigans are you talking about? Like doing drugs? I'm sure they could use the toilet cubicles for that.

So you can be confused much more frequently.

In the future if we're drunk and wanna explore. I've seen your dick, what's the difference if I just put that in my mouth. Maybe you touch mine, I'll touch yours. A few candles, a few beers. Badda Bing Badda Boom. Gay happens.

That must be a part of the guy experience I'm missing out on. I mean okay, I know it really doesn't matter, but if I had the option of taking a shower with the guy who just took my order at the drive-thru or not doing that, I'd choose not.

Yes, but that doesn't answer the question really. If that's the case, then why aren't regular men's bathrooms designed to the same spec? I mean, no difference, right?

So actually you may be a good person to ask. Do you prefer that they're designed like this? If so, why? If you had the choice between one with individual areas (like a college community bathroom, e.g. individual showers with dressing areas, dividers, etc.) and without, which would you prefer?
