Pretty much every time I’ve been attracted to someone I’m the one who buys the guy a drink or go over to him to chat him up. Maybe as a consequence the Icelandic men aren’t really the best at hitting on women and hardly ever give women compliments (although I think they might be getting better at it in recent years).And because the nation has such an equal approach to men and women this is considered completely normal. Living abroad and traveling has shown me that’s not the case elsewhere.If I open a bottle with a lighter back in Iceland I’d rather get an impressed look from the guys around me and probably someone asking how it’s done.
Now, the thing is – this does NOT mean that all Icelandic women are sluts or that they will sleep with anyone. Just because I (and other Icelandic girls) can talk freely about sex - does NOT mean that I (or they) will sleep with anyone or everyone!A couple of years later an Icelandic woman went on the Oprah Winfrey show and talked about how it is seen as ‘normal’ to have a one night stand in Iceland and that there are a lot of single mums in the country, which is perfectly normal and not looked down upon.She also pointed out our maternity benefits, that the female workforce participation in Iceland is among the highest in the world, that over 60% of our university students are female, that virtually all Icelandic women are wage earners by their own choice, etc.When I tell foreigners that it’s quite likely they’d get hit on by women in Iceland they frequently drop their jaws.For me, being Icelandic and female, this is perfectly normal.Men here are most of the time very insecure or afraid of women that are strong, confident and in charge – but a few of them love it and completely embrace it.I’ve sometimes been called ‘unfeminine’ for things such as being able to crack open a beer bottle with a lighter and then drinking a pint instead of some ‘more feminine drink’, such as a glass of wine.Nudity doesn't have to be a sexual thing - obviously it can be, but not always.I think being naked is a perfectly normal thing – that has been skewed in media and magazines and in this society of ‘perfect’ skinny models where everyone wants to look like an hourglass.but somehow the fact that we admit to having one night stands stood out.I feel like that's the thing that foreign media puts focus on, when it shouldn't be a big deal.
