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.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.This was mainly addressed to men and portraying the Icelandic women as easily caught bitches in heat.Feminists went crazy and there was a public outrage about the whole campaign.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.
(I just read a great article from Grapevine – great newspaper in English about everything that happens in Iceland - about this – that also points out that the average age of Icelanders to start having sex is the lowest in the world and that a high percentage owns sex toys and are likely to bring them to bed).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.I also feel that people here get embarrassed very easily for things that are perfectly normal to me, such as cheeky comments or topless sunbathing!She had a boyfriend at the time and went out with her friend.Her friend hooked up with some guy and the guy's friend said to her "Your friend looks very passionate, are you passionate?
