I don't understand why some of the above posters seem so prudish about nudity in the gym or locker room. We should be able to feel free to be nude at some point, and in many other countries beyond America, nudity is the norm, and nobody gets bent out of shape about it. I personally LIKE seeing man walk around naked in the gym, doesn't bother me a bit. If you're gonna be naked, that's the proper place for it. The place where you are toning your body. What DOES bother me is something that happens at my gym/bath house, is when some of these really arragant Middle Eastern guys (no offense to my brothers from the Middle East, but here in the L.A. area, so many guys from Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and those areas are INCREDIBLY pushy and arrogant) and occasional Caucasian bear-types, go into the steamroom and lather themselves up and start SHAVING, right there in the room. THAT'S disgusting, not to mention terribly rude and unhygenic. But, when you say something to them, or the management says something, they act like it's their RIGHT to endanger everyone else's health without a care in the world. The second-worst behavior in the steamroom are these trollish fat guys who come in there wearing street clothes, like T-shirts or tanktops and board shorts, and even tennis shoes! Again, the steamroom is meant to be used NAKED, with AT most a towel or a jockstrap, or MAYBE a thong or Speedo. But these fat guys are too embarrassed to strip because, well, they're out of shape to the point of being corpulent, and it's offensive. The only reason they go to the gym/bath is to ogle other guys without mercy, and even try to make passes at the rest of us without us ever giving any indication that we're interested.
Sorry for the rant. And, no offense to my Middle Eastern and White brothers.
