Yeah, this is the way it was when this guy went to high school and college. And when you moved to the Big City and had to share an apartment, I don't think many guys of this era (don't know what the women would say) were bothered by a roommate showering, coming out naked and grabbing a coke/beer from the kitchen, taking a glance at what you were watching on TV, picking out clothes in the bedroom, coming back out to ask a question...and then finally getting dressed.

But I think that in the last twenty or so years there has been a big swing in the direction of prudishness when it comes to the body. And it has a very Victorian cast. The male body is nasty and should always be covered, in loose clothes preferably; the female body may be exhibited provocatively as long as it is clothed, but it is a foul obscenity on the part of a male to react to the display.

Read the fashion forum on C-D for a good example of this.

..And this is WHY you make sure you can afford your OWN room.I don't understand why some people don't have any modesty and respect for others.If the person wants to run around naked in the hotel room..well they should at least tell the other person beforehand if it would make them uncomfortable.If the other person says ..yes it would...then the free spirit person should get their own room and run around naked as much as they like.

If the person in question is hot and of the opposite sex I would have no problem with that

I agree with this.

I have shared rooms with girlfriends and we have seen each other in our underwear, but that's it. take your bra/undies in the bathroom and put them on before you go out in the room. Even if you are 100% comfortable, have some respect for your roommate. if you MUST be naked, get your own room.

My friend which is woman was looking at this 70 year old naked woman walking all over the hotel room. She would lay on top of the bed without covering up.

Weird question, but it depends on the situation. If its someone that hasn't seen me naked, or someone I haven't seen naked, then probably no thanks.

Yeah, I'd have a problem with it too. I certainly wouldn't think it is ok to subject another person to your nudity in such a situation. Does the roommate do this at their apartment as well?
