Walking around naked in change rooms, why?

I can't think of the reason why men, majority being seniors walk around the change room in GoodLife.

Do women walk around naked?

I mentioned it to family and friends and was told maybe they're gay (not that there's anything wrong with that)?

Old men just don't care. They'll do it whenever they're allowed, and will actually have naked conversations with each other. The only time I've ever been in a change room where old men weren't walking around naked was when some guy brought his young daughter into the YMCA change room with him. I had to hide behind my locker door and change that day because she kept staring at me...

As for the gay theory, my current gym has signs in the change room saying photography of any kind will get your membership revoked. There's definitely a story behind that. Maybe it's an issue, maybe it isn't.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Usually it's the older guys that'll walk around naked in the change room.

WOULD SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

Because they're comfortable doing it and don't feel they need to cover up. Sure, I see naked women in the gym change room often. If nudity is allowed in a change room (how could it not be? Lol) then it doesn't bother me at all.

If you (the general you) has issues with naked bodies, that's your issue to deal with. I don't see what one's sexual orientation has to do with nudity. Black Question Mark Ornament

I am not sure the etiquette to be in Change room here in Canada, but i saw men just do naked without hesitation some time while other time all of them seem suddenly shy and cover well.
In china, it is of all naked, how could you not naked in shower and change? what could possible a guy be shy off at all ? Here with "proliferation" of gxx culture, I am puzzled.

And there are some behave rather intimately in public change room, and they tend to stare at you which make you feel disgusted.

It's probably because back in the day no one thought nothing about nudity in locker rooms. Now younger guys are so shy for whatever reason or because they don't want to see another guy nude so they just cover up as well.

Depending on the age, maybe the older guys just have to walk around airing themselves out to dry if they have issues with toweling themselves to dry???

When I started out at goodlife yes it was an overload of meat but after a while whatever...I just got used to it truthfully. And if you ever find yourself talking to them just make sure to never break eye contact because if you do.. ohhh man.

I have nothing against "naked" in change room , when you go to and from shower ... would I prefer if the towel was around your waist instead on your shoulder ? maybe/probably but mostly don't care ...
but yes some "individuals" are parading back and forth or standing in front of mirror fixing those 2 or 3 hair on their bold head for very looooong time Neutral Face and to those I would suggest put something on your ass if you plan to "hang" around for an hour or more :facepalm:

I'm curious as to why you'd suggest this? The people walking around naked don't have a problem with it.

change rooms are not "nudist resort/beach" (this is not a place for people who "like" to hang around naked ... ) ... again a have nothing against "naked" in "general" ...

There's nothing g wrong with being naked in a change room. It doesn't sound like they're hanging around loitering or treating it like a beach. Just sounds like they're getting ready nude. It's just a body ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I get it you're comfortable but it's not necessary, why can't you wrap a towel or even bring your underwear & towel in the shower like majority do. I/we need to see it.

I don't even walk around in my own house/master bedroom and I get ready in the bathroom.
