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. 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. And because the nation has such an equal approach to men and women this is considered completely normal.
Iceland's energy answer comes naturally
Everything Is Way More Sexy In Iceland - The Reykjavik Grapevine
Published July 11, We dropped him a line to ask about the challenges of staging an international music festival on the outskirts of the inhabitable world. How did you get started in the promotion business? Not sure, actually. Well I was never a real promoter before ATP. But apart from that, I had mainly been involved doing PR for Roskilde [a Danish music festival] and being their spokesperson in Iceland. And how did the idea for ATP Iceland come about?
Iceland's sensual circus; it's not only about sex
The word has gotten out, and many of us have already felt the magnetic pull. Iceland teems with visitors these days, and a good number of the Nordic island nation's residents graciously claim they like it this way. The country consists of an unforgiving landscape void of trees, whipped by wind and dotted with gushing geysers and bubbling hot springs. The rugged terrain seems charmed by something otherworldly, as crisp rainbows arch over waterfalls, and green and purple lights dance across a never-ending night sky.
Bathing in hot springs has long been a part of the Icelandic culture. When I speak to travellers about their upcoming Iceland adventures, so many of them say to me that they must visit the Blue Lagoon. But I also want to be clear that there are a number of hot springs dotted around Iceland, which each offer something different.
