Turkish Bath in Stockholm

Near Stockholm's main mosque, a turkish bath or hamam as it is generally known as, is very likely going to be built and ready for use around 2008. The bath has been purposely chosen to be built near the mosque because hamams in Turkey and many other Muslim countries are generally always built next to the mosque.

They are now looking at having 1 or 2 days a week reserved only for women. Swedish culture however promotes a very lax attitute towards having men and women together in baths due to the Scandinavian sauna culture.

Its good to see that businesses in Sweden cater to the needs of other cultures and minorities. I wonder is the business is going to be muslim owned or if the owners are sensitive to others needs and trying to target a growing muslim population.

The businessman is a non-Muslim Swede that was inspired to build a hamam in sweden after a trip to Turkey.

There is definitely an element of being open to making the hamam work for everyone. They studied how hamams work in Europe and found that many times they offer a day or two for women only.

That's nice. We allready have such a hamam in the Netherlands. You can see some pictures here:

By the way, i've been to the oldest Hamam in Konya (Turkey), that was a great experience!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
