Because some people (believe it or not) don't want to see your penis.

Flashing bare body parts is considered lewd and can result in a misdemeanor charge.

In the U.S.A. indecent exposure is the deliberate exposure in public or in view of the general public by a person of a portion or portions of their body, in circumstances where the exposure is contrary to local moral or other standards of appropriate behavior.
