I turn to see a lovely young British woman smiling warmly at me. I nod and she begins to chat me up about the wait for the restroom, as if this iceland nude the most normal thing in the world. On the other side of me, a middle-aged Icelandic woman taps her foot in frustration. Some American is using the one bathroom in this locker room to change clothes. She rolls her eyes. I roll my eyes in return — Americans. Now I am casually chatting with random European women in the buff at yet another geothermal pool Secret Lagoon. For the past six months, I have been preparing my daughters for this very scenario.

At ages eight and ten, they have not had much exposure to group nudity growing up in Middle America. I explained that while we would be in swimsuits in the hot springs, we would be expected to shower nude before swimming to ensure cleanliness.

One night about three weeks before our trip, my eight-year-old daughter was getting ready to shower when she iceland nude to me anxiously. Apparently for the last six months, my little girl had been losing sleep over sharing one shower stall with random naked strangers. No, there will be lots of showers in a big room.

You will be with me and your sister only, I promise. We watched videos on YouTube of Icelandic people singing a tune to remind tourists which body parts must be washed before swimming: Head, armpits, crotch and toes, crotch and toes. We began to sing it around the house regularly. At home, when women need to get naked in a group setting, such as the gym locker room, they follow a specific, unspoken protocol. We women make a silent pact to stare ahead into our lockers and frantically put on our clothes as if we are all competing in some odd, iceland nude dressing contest.

Everyone collectively turns away in disgust as that one old lady goes rogue and sways naked to the shower. As the week goes on, I find myself growing less and less self-conscious in front of other women. Rather, it becomes strangely comforting.

Surrounding me are bumpy tummies and C-section scars, pointy and saggy breasts, wrinkly bums and un-coiffed pubic hair. Clothes are artifice. Bras prop less than perky chests, Spanx suck in the cellulite. Clothes make woman much more intimidating.

Naked, we are all approachable members of the same tribe. The American woman finally comes out of the bathroom. The tourist looks back at her, eyes wide, and nods embarrassed, clutching her clothes to her chest.
