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. Women can do whatever men can do.
