The cover of the gay lifestyle magazine Out November issue features Alexander Skarsgard and the coverline "82 Reasons to Love Sweden," of which I'm guessing Alexander Skarsgard or a part of him is at least 10 -- oooh, I just thought of a 11th. Speaking of sex, let's skip right over all the stuff he says in the interview about musical instruments and patriotism and okay that's nice and get right to the juicy stuff. No, he's not gay. But he does have lots of sex, a result of his very refreshing and liberal view of sex. In fact, his interview enlightened me to the point that I truly believe you and I could really stand a chance of going to bed with him if we played our cards right. But not together. Even though he likes that too.
First, if you ever run into Alexander Skarsgard on the street, do NOT mention the words "naked" or "nudity." Skarsgard is sick of being asked about stripping down for scenes in movies and TV by the American media, and bringing it up will only piss him off. Swedish people, especially perfect Swedish people, have no problem taking off their clothes in front of other people, so get over it.
What you should do, however, is ask him if he's bored right now. Better yet, ask him in Swedish ... are you uttrakad right now? Apparently bored Swedish people have sex, especially during the cold months of the year.
Interviewer Jonas Åkerlund: That's the boning season. [Laughter] And then it's spring, and that's also boning season. And summer's the best boning season.
Skarsgård: And that's also why we're so liberal and so cool with our sexuality -- because we fuck a lot [laughter].
Åkerlund: How much time can you spend playing the drums?
Skarsgård: When you're bored, just have sex.
Am I the only one who is starting to think there are way more than 82 reasons to love Sweden? Booking my ticket now.
Do you think sex is a good cure for boredom?
