I have noticed that perceptions of sex and nudity in Iceland are a bit odd to some people. So I went out last night with a group of friends and was talking to an English friend of mine that suggested I should write a blog about how open Icelandic people are about sex. Which is obviously a great idea because everyone is going to want to read about that — and I have so much to say on the topic! This said friend has been to Iceland a couple of times as well as pretty much everywhere else in the world and he was amused when he was there with myself and my Icelandic female friend and we had a conversation, in English so that he could understand, detailing our sex-lives. For me, being Icelandic and female, this is perfectly normal.

Published December 30, My mother is a native New Yorker born on the island of Manhattan. My mother, unsurprisingly, looked a little worried. What is the deterrent to showering naked before getting into a pool—to being naked in the company of others, for that matter? Of the same sex? For Americans there is a built-in cultural self-consciousness that borders on shame. Like our language, we get it from the British. As if our modesty, protected until the showers, will be preserved in them. I can understand, though.

Iceland In 8 Days. The wonderful, wild, beautiful Iceland. This country raises questions more than just about any country on earth. Are those stories about having to completely undress before getting into a hot spring or pool true? Many factors play in, including setting, culture, traditions, and more. Together, these all play a major role in determining where, when, and how you can and cannot, should and should not, disrobe in Iceland. Iceland is an island country situated on the border of the Northern and North Atlantic ocean, just outside the Arctic Circle. Its name is somewhat deserved, considering the first settlers back in the 9th century stumbled upon a land far less grassy and green, and much more unforgivably cold and snowy. This period is believed to have been considerably colder in the region than what we experience today, as the Ice Age was still diminishing. The climate eventually became temperate.
