But at that point in my life I was still basically a virgin, and was a little nervous about doing sexual stuff, so nothing really happened.
We talked to the experts — and the locker-room nudists themselves. It's not as cut-and-dry as you'd think. Daniel became desensitized to nudity when he joined the Marines at I just lost the shame we build around our bodies when I realized that nobody cared and a body is just a body. Those old naked guys in the public locker room may be a dying breed.
