When it comes to one character thinking about another character, it's true some manga artists draw characters naked as a sign of someone having intimate knowledge of another (or fanservice). BUT, Gosho usually only draws characters naked in people's thoughts for... appropriate reasons
7-9 cover image: Ran imagines Shinichi having sex with a blond women because she thinks Shinichi is cheating (them nude together are depicted several times in this case)
16-9 Conan thinks of Ran naked because he thinks Kaitou Kid stole her clothes
24-2 pg 10: Shiratori thinks of a tied up Sato with her her clothes in tatters because he is worried the culprit is planning to "ravage" her.
46-11 pg 7: Ran imagines Shinichi naked in bed with a naked blond women (they are depicted at least one more time in this case)55-10 pg 10
: Ran imagines Eri naked with the man she is "committing adultery" with.
?-?: Conan thinks about Ran naked because she is/or asks about taking a bath with him. (several files I think)
?-?: Conan thinks about the naked victim because he was in a bath.
?-?: Takagi thinks of Sato nude during a fantasy of them being together (Situation is Shiratori wanted to marry Sato?)
?-?: Agasa accuses Conan of trying to walk in on Haibara in the bath, and Haibara is shown bathing.78-7:
Gin thinks of Vermouth with her clothes on (even though they have been intimate), in contrast to Sherry. Keep in mind Vermouth is one of the most likely characters to be drawn without clothes in any context (not just people's thoughts).
The implication of this is that Gin has an ... appropriate reason ... for thinking of Shiho naked repeatedly.
The only real exceptions to this rule are shadow people, which don't really count.
