A n article in the US magazine the Atlantic this week described one man's childhood horror of boys' open changing rooms and naked school swimming lessons. It felt like an injustice, he said, compared with the privacy that the girls were afforded — and this sense of injustice was only compounded in later life by public medical examinations in the army and extensive training on preserving a patient's modesty in medical school, which mysteriously left out the needs of men. The message was clear throughout his life, says the author: women get toilet and changing cubicles, gowns at the doctors' surgery and separate examination rooms. Men get told: man up, pants down.

Nudity or nakedness is when a person is not wearing clothes. The word "nudity" can also be used when only part of a person's body is uncovered. It is used particularly if the person's genitals or a woman's nipples can be seen, even if other parts of the body are covered. Nudity can also mean that a person is wearing less clothing that other people would expect.
Nudity , or nakedness , is a state of being in which a human is not wearing clothing or is not covering the genitals. Nakedness was the natural state of human beings in the tropical climates where they first evolved and continues to be the norm in many isolated indigenous societies during the 21st century. The modern understanding of nudity is culturally complex due to different meanings given various states of undress in differing social situations. In any particular society, nudity is defined in relation to being properly dressed, not in relation to the specific body parts exposed. For humans, nakedness and clothing are connected to many cultural categories such as identity , privacy , social status and moral behavior. In Western societies , there are two contradictory cultural traditions relating to nudity. The first comes from the ancient Greeks , who saw the naked body as the natural state and as essentially positive. The second is based upon the Abrahamic religions , which have viewed being naked as shameful and essentially negative. The fundamental teachings of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam prohibit public, and sometimes also private nudity.
