French Accent No Longer Sexiest. Is This News?

Tue Nov 03, 2009 7:31 pm

I saw on Sky News that the French accent is no longer the sexiest, according to a new poll.

Yawn.

The French accent is about as sexy as a toilet roll to me.

According to the survey, the Irish accent is the sexiest (feck!) and French is now 4th.

For me, I like a Scottish, Russian, Spanish, Iranian or Turkish accent (if spoken by a woman).

I never really like the Spanish accent from a woman, then again it's probably because most women from Spain that I've heard speaking Spanish have a somewhat deeper voice (which is a turnoff for me).

Quoting Mt99 (Reply 5):

I don't know. I've heard them over the phone and I never liked the accent, and no offense to our Australian members, but after working with many Australians over the phone, I've gotten tired of the Australian accent and would now much rather hear someone with a UK accent (particularly an English accent as long as it isn't one from too far up north in England).  Wink

I've never found a French accent to be very sexy anyway. Personally, I currently prefer English, Russian, Italian, Latin American (except Cuba, Venezuela and Puerto Rico) accents.

The inner city Dublin accent is the worst, I work with a girl who pronounces one (1) as wan!

The Dublin 4 accent, pick up a Ross O'Carroll Kelly book and he spells it out brillaintly!

Now my accent, Im from North Co Dublin, and have been told by passengers in work that I have a lovely British accent!!! Not impressed with that!

When speaking in English, I'll agree with romance languages, but not so much French accent. German accent isn't so bad either, IMO. . .

If speaking in Portuguese, English speakers sound funny. Same is true with heavy German accents.

The accent that drives me nuts is the British accent some of the uber hot British actresses like Liz Hurley and Keira Knightley speak. Dunno why but I just melt when I hear them speak.  melting 

I find Liz Hurley's seductive voice extremely arousing in the movie Bedazzled:

I´m thinking of a certain hostie, who originally hails from the region around Prestwick in Scotland and is based at our station. She is more or less in my age range ( a bit younger) and I love the way she talks.
There are also various Spanish and Portugese hosties at our base, who don´t have basso voices, but sound quite cute.

I also forgot a Filipino accent, which sounds hot (after all my Missus hails from these islands).

I think French spoken with a French 'accent' is simply beautiful.

However, Non-English English accents are best when spoken by:

1. Jamaican
2. French
3. Filipinos and Indonesians and Malaysians
4, South Africans

and NO ONE ELSE!!! The rest of you, Fuggedaboudit!!

OK, Im English and I love English spoken by the BC Canadian girls... a soft Irish accent works for me too - Andrea Corr................  cloudnine  My wife is Scottish (from Fife) and I hate the accent!!

But all the Canadian girls love my English accent - Im from London, which can be polished if I want it to be (like if I want a free drink or something...) Im not a true cockney as I was born in "norf" London, but my dads family were born within the sound of the Bow bells & I was actually brought up to use rhyming slang, and did until I left home...

Look up Derek & Rodney Trotter (Only Fools & Horses) on youtube for that awful accent...
