As you probably know, Swedes are pretty chilled out and open-minded and many like to enjoy a swim or to sunbathe in the nude. Nudism in Sweden is totally natural and absolutely nothing unusual and Swedes view nudism and nudity as stricly non-erotic and non-sexual. There is a strong association generally outside Sweden and an unjustified prejudice that Sweden is all about sex and nudism (which is incorrect.) This closed-minded prejudice stems from early teachings about sex in Swedish schools, Swedish sexy blondes, when a liberal minded nation got unjustifiably tarnished with the reputation for hot sex and loose women.
So, if you are in Sweden and you want to go “au naturel”, what do you do if you want to enjoy the beach naked? Well, there are many Swedish nudist beaches.
