Instead of answering the question, we got a census of those who have no curtains. It's nonsense.

Let's try to answer:

  1. There are no curtains in the whole world. And these are flowers. In many European countries, there is no division at all between male and female showers. M and F quietly wash in Adam's suits without curtains in the neighboring booths. It's okay for them. And just the remnants of the Soviet past make us split into M and F and be ashamed of our body. Alas, there was no sex education in the USSR, as in post-Soviet Russia. Our men can swing rights in their area and pretend to be alpha males, while huddling and embarrassed, for example, that a gay person will look at them in their souls.

  2. There are water parks in Europe where everyone, young and old, swim naked. What can we say about saunas, which are almost always common and where it is forbidden to enter with towels and underwear. (Sometimes there are separate women's saunas, but for men usually the only way is to go to the general one.)

  3. Modern fitness clubs usually open in the Western style, or they are opened entirely by European developers or chains. So it comes as no surprise that showers don't have curtains.

  4. If you are a coach, you must have your own coaching "staff" shower room with appropriate private booths.

  5. Open showers save space. The presence of additional doors or curtains would require an increase in the size of the cubicles, by reducing the number of shower faucets and narrowing the passageways in the shower rooms. And this is the economy. No one is willing to waste money and pay big rent for larger showers for the percentage of people who find it a problem.

  6. In my fitness center, showers are arranged in a maze and you can almost always find a place in the blind spot if someone is uncomfortable.

I have a purely hypothetical assumption based solely on guesswork, but it is quite possible that this hypothesis takes place as one of the factors.

So, it is likely that, in addition to purely sanitary and hygienic prerequisites , the lack of an opportunity to retire in the shower was created specifically in order to exclude the desire of visitors to engage in various lewd practices like masturbation and sex.

In addition, in the pools, for example, there is a special control over whether visitors have washed in the shower before going to swim. This control is easier to implement in the absence of additional barriers.

I quote one of the manuals read in ancient times:

"It is forbidden to install screens in the shower rooms. The paramedic on duty and the trainer visually check each washing shift for washing in clothes, carrying prohibited items into the shower area, as well as committing hooligan acts. "

Answer 5

In German fitness clubs there is no way to change and wash separately from the world.

In the pools you can undress and dress in a special booth, however, if there is a sauna, then everyone goes naked anyway.

Answer 6

We manufacture and install shower screens. Including in fitness clubs. It's simple. Partitions without doors are cheaper than with doors. Choosing an owner usually starts with the option with doors and ends with what is cheaper. Money decides everything.

Answer 7

Perhaps the point is hygiene - a large number of bacteria and fungi settle on the curtains, and in the case of constant treatment with chemicals, the curtains quickly deteriorate.

Answer 8
August, 2021

It seems to me, precisely so that people do not linger. In the Czech Republic, where I now spend a lot of time, most fitness rooms also have no curtains or partitions.

Answer 9
August, 2021

It seems to me that they are not hung on purpose, so that people do not linger in the shower for a long time. It's so nice to soak up the warm running water. And there are a lot of people in the fitness club and nobody will like the queues.

Answer 10

I don't know the consequences of which mentality. In Germany, for example, citizens visit the bathhouse together. And only once a week their saunas are divided according to gender. It's called the "GDR Day", you know why :)

Answer 11
August, 2021

Why are there really no curtains in most fitness rooms? After all, washing "intimately" is as natural as going to the toilet.

I don't often go to the shower in the club where I work. Firstly, personally, I am a shy person and I always feel uncomfortable when I am in "Adam's suit". Secondly, all the men who visit our gym know me, and involuntarily, they begin to evaluate your athletic figure, how good the coach looks who "teaches life" to the club's visitors. Thirdly, gays often visit clubs, and they, without hesitation, can look at a person, which personally gives me unpleasant sensations, and can simply cause aggression in someone. And the absence of curtains in our shower room clearly does not contribute to the psychological calmness of many visitors to fitness clubs.

Sometimes I think - is it true, why not hang curtains? Perhaps the roots of the problem lie in the Soviet past. In the villages, everyone washed in a bath, no one thought about embarrassment. In the shower sports sections, which I attended as a child, and partitions were not always met, one could only dream of curtains. And now modern fitness clubs appear on our market, and they are apparently run by people from that era, who are alien to the concept of "intimacy". I don’t know how things are with showers in Europe or the States, but it seems to me that the “right to intimacy” is observed more often there!

I finished writing my answer, and then thought even more and went to one of our directors and asked: "Why don't we really have curtains in the showers?" He replied: "Why?" The dialogue failed.

Probably, these are the consequences of the Soviet mentality. In the States, there are curtains in the showers of gyms, fitness clubs and pools.
