I’ve noticed that Iceland’s view of sex and nudity is a little strange for some people.

So I went out with a group of friends last night to talk to an English friend, and I should write a blog about how icelanders are open. (this is obviously a good idea, because everyone wants to read it, and I have a lot to say on this topic)

The friend a few times been to Iceland (and other parts of the world), when he and I and my female friends in Iceland, he felt very happy, we talk in English, so that he can understand, our sex life. Apparently my Icelandic friend was annoyed with a man she was sleeping with, trying to sleep again, but didn’t hear it, and then a man walked past us, pointing out, “that’s him!

Now, I don’t remember this particular event, probably because it’s just one of the normal things that I talk about my sex life almost every day (or lack of it!). Sex with my friend. However, in the past three years, I lived in England, I realized that no matter where I travel, it is likely to be I’m referred to as “crazy” one of the reasons: icelanders open attitude towards sex, and naked.

When I told foreigners they were likely to be beaten by Icelandic women, they often dropped their mouths. For me, Iceland and women, it’s very normal. Almost every time I was attracted to someone, I was the one who gave him a drink, or went to talk to him. And because the country has the same approach to men and women, it is considered perfectly normal. Women can do what any man can do. Why don’t they?

It may be that Icelandic men are not the best at women, with little appreciation for women (though I think they may be getting better in recent years). Living and traveling abroad has shown that this is not the case elsewhere.

Now some think this means that Icelandic girls are untouchables. They are not! If so, these men would be as many as the slut. We won’t because she likes to lie with a man (or woman) and a woman called “slut”, we will not because likes to sleep with women (or men) and call a man “slut”. They may have high sex charges and/or bad luck, so they sleep with a lot of partners. I mean, if you come across someone who doesn’t make you happy in bed, then this may not be a lasting relationship. This is true for both men and women. Then you move on. It’s all about equality.

If you’re lucky, before you heart too much damage, you will meet that “special person” – but if you don’t do it, so when you meet the person, know exactly what you want in bed is no harm!

Sex and naked

As a British woman, I noticed a different attitude towards women in Iceland. Because I (and other Icelandic girls I know here) openly discuss our sex lives with friends/classmates/acquaintances, some people think we have more sex partners. Men here most of the time are insecure or afraid of strong, confident and responsible women – but some of them like it and fully embrace it. Sometimes I am referred to as “non-feminine”, such as the ability to open a beer bottle with a lighter and drink a glass of wine rather than a “more feminine drink”, such as a glass of wine. If I open a cigarette lighter in Iceland, I’d rather get an impressive look from the people around me, and someone might ask what’s going on.

Sex in Iceland?

A few years ago, Iceland, the airline made an advertising campaign, use words to express with Iceland country notorious sexual indifference about different meanings, in Iceland to “have a one-night stand in reykjavik” as the slogan, or “imagine a dirty weekend in Iceland?” (and a picture of people in the blue lagoon with mud on their faces.) This is mainly aimed at men and portrays Icelandic women as hot dogs. Feminists are crazy, and the public is angry about the whole movement. This makes a false impression on foreigners. (I just read a great article from the vine – about all the things happened in Iceland, english-language newspaper – about this – also pointed out that the average age of the Icelandic people begin to make love is the lowest in the world, and a high proportion to have sex toys, and is likely to bring their bed).

A few years later, an Icelandic women participated in the Oprah Winfrey (Oprah Winfrey) show, talked about the spent one night in Iceland is “normal”, and there are a lot of single mothers, this is very normal, not despise. She also pointed out that our mothers benefits that Iceland’s female labor force is the highest in the world, more than 60% of college students are female, almost all of the Icelandic women is their choice of the working class and so on, but somehow, we admit the fact that there is a night is prominent. I think this is what foreign media is concerned about. It shouldn’t be a big deal. Now, I’m not saying that everyone has a night stand or even a night stand, but sometimes people get in touch and they happen.

Now, that doesn’t mean that all Icelandic women are untouchables, or that they sleep with anyone. I can’t emphasize that. Just because I (and other Icelandic girls) are free to talk about sex – doesn’t mean I (or them) sleep with anyone or everyone! After the Iceland air campaign – still from time to time today – there will be some (men) tourists, they believe they have to do is to appear in the bar and buy a pretty girl for a drink. This is clearly not the case. You still need to be smart, attractive, interesting, respectful, and all the other women (and men) are attracted to.

Sex and naked

I remember the story of an Icelandic friend in London. She had a boyfriend and went out with her friends. Her friend and a man were hooking up, and her boyfriend’s friend said to her, “your friend looks very passionate. Do you have a passion?” So she replied, “if you’re talking about sex, then yes, I’m passionate about sex, and I’m just not keen on having sex with you.” To his credit, he was very satisfied with the answer to the direct, they continue to be a spouse to speak, she must be explained that when it comes to matters of sex icelanders very frank, but when it comes to matters of sex too).

Iceland naked

I personally think it’s a positive thing, we like sex, we’re not afraid to talk about it, don’t go crazy about being naked. Nudity doesn’t have to be a personality thing – obviously it can, but not always. I think is a very normal naked – in the media and magazines as well as in the “perfect” thin body model in the society, everyone wants to look like an hourglass, this is a skewed.

Also, don’t read “naked utopias” like Iceland, where everyone walks around naked and has no discussion other than sex. People usually can only be washed up in the shower of sexual division reykjavik, swimming pool, or in the rest of the country’s swimming pool, may also be enough sunlight weather days in a year, unable to enjoy sunbathing in public places. In fact, in March 2015, there was a #freethenipple movement against women (no?). Feel free to sunbathe in public (even during breastfeeding). So, upper body naked women in the 70 s is very normal thing, in the 90 s or the ’00 s, this problem has become a taboo – but now this taboo has been broken?

Now, after living in the UK for a few years, I realize that most people in the UK have a lot of nudity and are not comfortable with naked people or naked people. For example, I went to an Erasmus project in Estonia with a group in my class, and they only had a public shower in our dorm room, but the men and women were separated. Now, all the British girls are scared, and in the first month, they wear bikinis, even though there are other girls around. At last they understood, and no longer made a fuss about it.

At another time, I went to see the musical “dance” in London, in one scene, actor took off his clothes, and leading lady fell in love (all the hostess is suggested – moaning and groaning or anything! He took off his clothes, kissed the girl, and in those uncomfortable people, couldn’t hear the phone, giggled and heard a rumble.

One reason, I think, is that the British have never seen any naked people other than their own bodies, the nudity of television, and their sexual partners. They don’t grow up and think it’s perfectly fine to be naked in someone else’s body – they don’t have to take a shower after practice, but go home and take a shower!

Sex and naked

If you’ve been to Iceland, or any other blog read this website, you may have already seen, one of the things you need to do is to adapt to the country naked in the shower before you go to the swimming pool. If you go to a hot pool/river/pond somewhere in the middle of the country, it’s perfectly appropriate to wear your Adam’s clothes (or eve). I remember, when I grow up, I will go with my family in the autumn harvest berries, if it was a sunny day, my mother no one will be around at the time of picking berries her hair to get some tan. As a teenage summer cabin trip, there will always be some people put his own clothes stripped naked, naked in the snow and ice, or in a cold water, then warm up in the massage bath crock.

So the bottom line: Iceland’s nudity is normal and very acceptable. People have sex, most of the time people like sex, people talk about sex. The first time I met a good friend, she came to my dinner party and began to give a vivid description of a fake penis that had been seen in a sex shop earlier that day. Five minutes later, she introduced herself to me. The first time I saw him, another good friend of mine was naked at the party and did a little nude dance on the table. (this may not apply to every icelander, and I may just have friends, especially nudity or frankness).

Now, you may also feel it is very strange (depends on where you come from – I found the scandinavians, finns and estonians and icelanders share this thing – may go to sauna with naked) – but in the UK, I when people talk about drugs, they found that people like easy and relaxed. To me, this is strange. The first time I met all kinds of people (in the work/party/school/workshops), told me they got ecstasy, cocaine and other things at the weekend, and then they asked me if I want to be a line of coke. I’ve never met anyone from Iceland for the first time. So I think, for icelanders, it’s normal to talk about your sex life, in the UK, people think you’re mixed. It’s normal for the British to talk about drug abuse in Iceland.

Now, if people are sensitive to nudity and sex and like to keep their stories and opinions secret, then there’s no problem for me. When women because of their sex open and be judged as women, I don’t like this kind of statement, and mentioned degrading comments (shameless woman, shameless woman, etc.) – and these comments always seems to refer to women rather than men. Hope that through TV shows like “sex and the city”, women are more likely to talk about their sex lives around the world, and not be called “bitch” easy, but because of who I am confident and know what you want and how to get it. That’s what we saw in Iceland.

Moreover, it goes without saying:

Practice safe sex in this world, enjoy it, try and love everything, don’t take it too seriously! 🙂 now read about mating and Icelandic nightlife.

The ps blog has become more popular than I expected – some people misunderstand it and send me some (weird) questions. Most people are positive and I want to thank you for your lovely feedback! 🙂

But I have updated it just to make it clear: this is from my own experience, not applicable to everyone at home. Just because I think nudity is normal doesn’t mean I’m a one-night stand or party or cheating. I am an inner romantic, my relationship rules first, second and third are not cheating. So it’s only here to find “how to score” tips, either learn to respect girls or leave!
