The July issue of GQ has a travel section on Scandinavia (loosely known as Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark…but you knew that) which includes the spicy little excerpt below written by a Swede who knows a thing or two about a thing or two.
Recently a friend of mine locked himself out of his building. It was in the middle of the night, so he climbed up a fire escape and through an open window. The thing is, he ended up in the wrong apartment, with a bewildered Swedish chick staring at him. He explained his gaffe; she laughed. Ten minutes later, they were hooking up.
Maybe it’s because we have no religious hang-ups or because the long winter makes us lusty come summer, but Swedish women believe in casual sex. To us it’s like jogging: uncomplicated and good for your health. The trick is getting our attention.
Your in is simple: Swedish guys never pay, so a free drink is an easy way to press us. Once we’re talking, avoid politics or war, and never brag. Self-deprecation is an aphrodisiac. And if we invite you back to our place, know that sleeping over is fine – but you’d better make a damn good breakfast. While we’re mellow about sex, we take our eggs very seriously.
So there you have it. Book your flight to Scandinavia immediately!
