Why is it that young people in changing rooms dont like to get naked? - Why do they prefer to try and hide behind a towel - which is a lot harder to do! Yesterday i went to the gym and went swimming. Both were for ages 18 - 21, im 19 btw. in the swimming changing room, only two people got naked when changing, and i was the only one that got naked in the shower.. In the gym i was the only one that had a shower at all! - and people were looking at me as if i was weird. Im not rele an exibitionist, i just like to be clean and dont care who sees me, even if im there with friends. Why are people so scared, and why dont the like changing properly?
