Scandinavians have a reputation for being emotionally cold and distant -- not for being sober. Finland is infamous for its drunkenness. Porn thrives in some of those countries, especially Denmark --
Wikipedia article on Pornography in Denmark ( can't get formatting to work so I'll just section it off ):
"The ban on pornography in Denmark was lifted in 1967. In 1969, Denmark became the first country in the world to legalize pornography.
People in Denmark have free access to pornography; it is sold in most convenience stores, and is available for purchase or rental in practically every video store, including Blockbuster. There are a few regulations: for example, pornography must be placed out of the eyesight of children, and it may not be sold to persons under the age of 15. The TV channel Kanal København broadcasts hardcore pornography free and uncoded at night...
Since 1980, child pornography has been illegal in Denmark. It is illegal to distribute photographic or video pornography of persons under the age of 18, although the age of consent in Denmark is 15. It is, however, not illegal to possess images or videos of people above 15 if such persons have given consent."
There is worse stuff in here but in the interest of modesty, I will ignore it, better just to get the point across.
Pay attention: In the last paragraph, it says that child pornography has been illegal in Denmark since 1980. But porn was legalized in 1969. And indeed, child porn was legal there for ten years.
Death metal and black metal, Satanic music, also thrives in these countries, and something tells me, from what I have seen, that these people are not the last word in chastity. So no, cold does not mean "frigid" or asɛҳuąƖ, on the contrary. Essentially there is no country on Earth that is asɛҳuąƖ; everyone has original sin. Where we differ is in our emotional attitudes to it. Like I said earlier, Scandinavians are emotionally frosty, that is the cliché. Italians and Spanish are considered more hot-tempered, like the type to kill women who are cheating on them, while a Finnish guy would just sit in the subway and drink himself to death, etc. Those countries are also known for ѕυιcιdє and depression. Again, I'm just speaking of the general perception, which has some truth to it, but each individual is different.
