The reported “problem” of people having sex in the Blue Lagoon is vanishing, says an official for the popular tourist spot.

Atli Sig­urður Kristjáns­son, the project manager for the marketing department of the Blue Lagoon, is familiar with the old chestnut that people will take advantage of the lagoon’s cloudy water to engage in some covert coupling. However, he told MBL, this issue is becoming “a vanishing problem.”

Atli warns that the lagoon has some strict rules about personal conduct therein. There are four lifeguards on duty at all times, who keep a close eye on what guests are up to.

“It is a part of their job to pay attention to the behaviour and experiences of our guests,” he told reporters. “We protect the experiences of our guests, and we take matters such as [having sex in the lagoon] very seriously, as it is actually not allowed.”

In the event that a couple, or more people, are caught having sex in the Blue Lagoon, he says, they are immediately ordered out of the water and shown the door.

“It hasn’t happened in many years [that we know of],” he said. “But if it happens, they’re immediately shown the way out.”
