I hear ya. I leave the door open when I'm using the toilet when I'm here alone with the kids -- they pretty much leave me alone, but once in a while they'll cruise by and chat or whatever, which is fine. And DH and I pee in front of each other when we're getting ready for bed at night, but when I'm doing my morning routine after my shower, I like to be nude (to "steam" so I don't sweat all over my clothes) and it drives me crazy when DH keeps coming in.
Our room doesn't have a door between the bedroom and the bathroom, so even though I wait until he's showered and dressed before I start getting ready, he'll invariably come upstairs and change his shirt, or get his shoes that he forgot, or grab some stuff for the dry cleaners, or whatever, and I always say, "I'M IN THE BATHROOM!! I KNOW THERE'S NO DOOR, BUT IT'S THE BATHROOM AND IT'S PRIVATE." I'm half-joking, but it does really irk me sometimes.
I'm not a fan of that trend in home design, where the master bedroom has no bathroom door. It's fine for there to be openness between husbands and wives, but I do not need DH getting a full backside view of me bending over blow drying my hair or something.
