I don't know a lot of Roman history, but I noticed in some of their statues, naked people. Their sexual organs are shown and obivious to people. Here's a simple google search.
Was it normal back then for citizens to show their sexual organs? Was it a symbol of strength? Could someone walk naked in the summer?

No, they did not walk naked, they just created these statues.
The Roman statues follow the tradition of the Greeks.
