On Wednesday, the New York Times ran an entertaining and educational piece detailing some of the history behind Scandinavia’s reputation as a bastion for sex.
Filed from an Oslo art exhibit at the Office of Contemporary Art entitled “Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia?”, the article ponders whether Scandinavia has lost some of its lustre when it comes to being the capital of carnal knowledge.
What did happen to the image of Scandinavia as the frigid tundra of hot sex? [...] How did Scandinavia turn from “Maid in Sweden” to Ikea, from the purveyor of earnest free love into the purveyor of affordable love seats, from the home of Christina Lindberg (the maid) into the home of Abba?
A pressing question, indeed.
Another question we have is whether the exhibit will be making its way to Stockholm which is, after all, the Capital of Scandinavia.
