The blog goes on to state that by all accounts Icelanders “are more ravenous and enthusiastic about casual sex than anyone anywhere”.Quite a big statement, although the author adds that the dating culture in Iceland is “backwards”, beginning “with drunk sex and ends in … The blog is written from the point of view of a north American, so the dating etiquettes seem wild at best to the writer who talks about a “fuck first, names later” way of meeting people, setting Iceland apart from “the rest of the developed world” when it comes to dating.Have you noticed differences between Iceland and America in terms of dating and sex?
Nerve asks deeply personal questions to people we just met. I grew up in Iceland, and now I'm actually living in Seattle, but I'm here for the summer doing a research project at the University. — how do I put this — it seems to me that the girls don't want to have sex. It's almost like when the Americans are renewing their vows is when the Icelanders get married. We've been together ten years, our kids are almost teenagers, now would be a good time to get married." Icelandic girls actually really like American guys because they'll pay for drinks and they always want to have sex with them, because American girls are blueballing them. Generally in Iceland, people have kids, then maybe they'll buy a house together, then maybe when their kids are ten or twelve they'll get married. I don't understand why sex can't be that way. The perceived promiscuity of the islanders is in fact infamous as is covered in Grapevine, and Airline Company Iceland Air capitalized on it in the nineties by turning Iceland into “a hot destination” for so-called “dirty weekends.” and thereby certainly did its part in spreading that message, or myth, depending on the position you take, by actually using catchphrases like “Fancy a dirty Weekend in Iceland?” “One Night Stand in Reykjavík”, “Miss Iceland Awaits” and “Get lucky in Reykjavik”.
