Björk's opinions on gender, music, creativity, and fame are always intellectual gifts. She's been questioning the restrictions of feminine tropes since the 90s, and in recent years has been vocal about the hierarchical way we value women's work in the music industry and the impenetrable boys club that freezes female artists out. Now she's offering up the thoughts on sex and eroticism, or more specifically what she calls: "normcore sexuality."

In a recent conversation with the Evening Standard the Icelandic icon said she doesn't find "the kind of Las Vegas corset-and-fishnet-stockings thing very sexy." And while she enjoys erotic books and films, nature is her biggest turn on. She explains: "I like bestiality. I get turned on by nature. I don't find urban brothel situations very hot. But that's just my taste… like, National Geographic porn."

While she does admit to having a soft spot for David Attenborough — who in 2013 she made a documentary with about the relationship between music and nature — even he is a bit regular for here. "'I'm probably more into the animals," she concludes.
