why do we wear cloths?

Ever since we existed, we have worn clothing. From shirts and pants, to animal fur. Why do we do this? Also why do we feel embarrassed when we don't?

Well, the original purpose of clothes was for protection against the elements and warmth. Over time social norms formed as any social norm has. Fashion became a thing and people invest in clothing now. Also, we are embarrassed while naked because of silly social etiquette that was formed just as any other odd "normality."

People USED to wear clothes to a. keep them warm because people don't have fur and b. protect their private parts from harm. The embarrassed feeling is because of the things implied when not wearing clothes. Hope that helps!

We wear clothes because we don't want to show what's underneath our clothes!
CrystalWings

I guess because boys don't want to see girls' vaginas and girls don't wanna see boys' penises?

In some cases, although this is really disgusting and I'm ashamed of society for this reason, this isn't true.

Because most humans don't understand that skin is already their clothes and they're comfortable wearing ANOTHER layer made of cotton and silk.............
