Swedes are open-minded and many like to swim or sunbathe in the nude. Nudism in Sweden is nothing unusual and Swedes make it clear that the purpose of nudism/naturism is strictly non-erotic and non-sexual. One prejudice is that Sweden is all about sex and nudism (which is incorrect). This closed-minded prejudice stems from early teachings about sex in Swedish schools.
