Amanda Bynes' Naked Tanning Salon Rumor—What's Proper Spa Etiquette? Let's Discuss.

Earlier this week, In Touch magazine published a story that the 26-year-old actress had allegedly traipsed around an NYC tanning salon—wearing nothing but her goggles.
According to a source, the completely-naked star looked "painfully thin" and "seemed totally out of it."
Infuriated, Bynes denies the report is looking to take legal action against the mag. "I'm suing In Touch for printing a fake story," Bynes told Us Weekly. "I'm not 'troubled.' I don't get naked in public. I'm 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy."
We're curious. What do you think about the issue? Shouldn't there some sort unspoken spa law: "What happens at the spa, stays at the spa?" Like, could you imagine if your massage therapist told other people what your thighs really look like... Terrifying, right?
And what about those really awkward salon etiquette instances. Say, when you're getting a spray tan and something goes wrong. You don't want to end up like a Ross Gellar—a zero on one side, an eight on the other. So what do you do?
Do you put your clothes back on after you've already slathered on base lotion? Do you yell for help? That seems rude. Spray tan technicians see you naked anyway—and in saunas, women are nude all the time. Should that be any different at a spa or tanning salon? Then again, tons of salons aren't separated by gender. I'd be pretty horrified to see an unexpected naked guy just strolling around.
So what do you think—what if Bynes did walk around naked? Did she break etiquette? Was it wrong for someone to even have disclosed this info to In Touch? What do you do at the spa or salon when you encounter an issue? We want to know! Let's discuss in the comments, below.
