Iceland's parliament has voted to ban striptease shows, making it an offense for any business to profit from the nudity of its employees.
Iceland's legislature, the Althingi, passed the ban Tuesday night, with just two abstentions and no votes against.
Nude dancing was already heavily regulated in Iceland, a north Atlantic island nation of 320,000, and only a handful of clubs feature stripping.
Kolbrun Halldorsdottir, a former lawmaker who was the first to propose the legislation, told broadcaster RUV on Wednesday that "it is not acceptable that women, or people in general, are a product to be sold."
The country combines liberal social values with a strong women's movement. Almost half of Iceland's legislators are women.

I guarantee alot of Icelanders are pretty angry now. What are they going to do when they get in an argument with their wives?
