Only a group space which was already quite full of naked, soapy women. I was aware that we had to shower with the complimentary soap without our bathing suits. I saw the signs and read them and felt a bit queasy as I did. I was going to have to rub my private parts with my soapy hands and rinse them in front of other human beings, with whom I was not intimately acquainted. I froze for a moment in the intersection of shower room and dry room attempting to hatch a plan. I watched people fold their towels and place them in metal racks before entering the showers.
Topless woman shown out of Iceland pool: Whatever happened to free the nipple?

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.
Have any questions?
I turn to see a lovely young British woman smiling warmly at me. I nod and she begins to chat me up about the wait for the restroom, as if this were the most normal thing in the world. On the other side of me, a middle-aged Icelandic woman taps her foot in frustration. Some American is using the one bathroom in this locker room to change clothes. She rolls her eyes.
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.
