The blue lagoon, with its rugged surrounding, blue water and geo-thermal steam can be a romantic location. Early on in the history of the lagoon some visitors let the atmosphere take control, engaging in intimate relations not appropriate for a public place.

According to the local newspaper Morgunblaðið rumors that people frequently engage in sexual intercourse in the lagoon are simply not true. Atli Sigurður Kristjánsson, a project manager at the marketing department of the Blue Lagoon, tells the newspaper that there is a strict zero-tolerance policy when it comes to intimate relations between guests in the lagoon.

Four guards monitor the guests in the lagoon at all times, and that anyone caught violating the rule is immediately escorted out. Atli tells Morgunblaðið that violations of this rule were more common in the early years of the lagoon, but is no longer a real problem. “This has not happened for many years, but if it does we will immediately escort people out of the lagoon.”
