I don't really feel it is necessary, but it's what we've always done, culturally. I don't have a problem showering in a co-ed shower; if my university had had co-ed bathrooms I'd have been OK with it. Some people aren't, though...so they go to schools that don't have co-ed bathrooms, or dorms...or even to male- or female-only colleges.
going to same-sex colleges isn't because people are not okay being around the opposite sex. it is because studies have shown that males and females do significantly better academically when in same-sex classrooms. sexual orientation doesn't play a role in that. at least, not from what i read. that just has to do with exceling in the classroom.
