What’s the sexiest accent in the world? The winner by a landslide was . . . a BRITISH accent.
We think that’s a pretty bold claim. Sure, it might sound sexy when James Bond is introducing himself. But do you also find it sexy when some chimney sweep is spouting cockney jibberish? Also, when would either of those things ever happen?
Apparently people can get past that . . . because the British accent was voted the sexiest accent in the world by a LANDSLIDE. 27% of people say it’s the world’s sexiest accent. The second place accent only got 8.7% of the vote.
And that second place accent was . . . the AMERICAN accent. I’m thinking people mean the genteel Southern accent. Or maybe a harmless Midwest accent. Not, like, Boston.
The 10 sexiest accents are: British . . . American . . . Irish . . . Australian . . . French . . . Italian . . . Spanish . . . Scottish . . . Latin American . . . and Scandinavian.
