Published June 19, Italian men wear wifebeaters and are passionate lovers. French men are skinny and smoke after sex. Brazilian men can dance and are carnal and generous in bed. What do they think about romance and sex? How do they approach dating and hookups in this tiny country where they either know or are related to the majority of the population? To answer this age old question, the Grapevine asked five very different Icelanders to anonymously tell us the real-real.
Some were monogamists, others players. Some recently single, others perpetually so. So read at your own risk to understand the enigma of the Icelandic male, but know that all names have been changed as have ages and any identifying details have been taken out.

The first time I had sex with an Icelandic girl without a condom, I pulled out, and I swear she had never seen that done before. She was really shocked. All my friends use condoms. But I guess the whole scene here revolves around drunk hookups, so that means unprotected sex. Okay, are you taught that incest is bad, or is it ignored? I have a friend who told me he took MDMA last week and made out with three of his cousins at a party.
I mean, I have a hot gay cousin and I would have made out with him, but never before I moved to Iceland.
This place has changed me. It happens by accident. Once my homie had sex with a girl and then went to a family party—. I knew quite young what was illegal and what was not. I really considered doing something with this girl recently but I was in a relationship with her sister for two years—not biologically related. These are typical Icelandic situations. You gotta learn to be mature about it as fast as possible or else you are going to have a terrible fucking life here. Dating in this country is even smaller if you are gay though.
I probably know all of them. But I think many in the gay scene are quite miserable.
