The subject came up during a panel with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Dr. Ish Major, and comedians Chris Distefano and Rip Michaels, where they all talked about sex-related insecurities.

"I definitely have an insecurity when it comes to being intimate," Nick said. “I’ve been skinny my whole life, so therefore I've never liked to be completely naked. It's usually, like, I hide under the covers. As much as I boast about being in shape."

Nick also said that male body dysmorphia is something "women don’t like to think about," adding that he's "got to have some type of clothes, some type of socks" on while having sex.

"That's when we're our most vulnerable," he said. "When we're making love, when we're tapping in to our sensuality. That's when we are our most open."

Nick definitely wasn't alone in his feelings. Fellow panelist Rip Michaels joked: "I am completely clothed up in a Snuggie... I hate my body, so I am with you Nick. I totally am insecure about that. Like I want lights off, I want covers, I want blankets, I want a ski mask. I am totally not that confident, sexy, Rick Ross fat guy."
