    What makes you find the
    American accent "sexy"?
    Which American accent?

    I had Brit bfs. Found them
    sexy, but not all/any Brits.
    I like difference, variations.

    Anything different is exotic, and that's a turn-on for some.

    I like Pittsburgh accents personally.

    i guess in my case i've gotten so used to the local speech so when i meet somebody from elsewhere its always exciting. A contemporary educated London accent just sounds so refined and well...educated. The only danger with me and people with accents is if we talk long enough i'll start to accidentally pick it up.

    Yes me and alcohol in the southern U.S. is an embarrassing combo. Who knew "dog" was a four-syllable word? This guy!

    I find the british accent as girly and a huge turn OFF, the Irish accent is a turn on for me!

    just so you know, in London alone there are numerous variations and the country as a whole has a multitude of distinct, sometimes truly foreign-sounding accents. There is no such thing as "the british accent". You may be referring to the stereotypical "Highbrow" type accent typical of wealthy people in old films (very proper and formal).

    What is an "American Accent"?

    Foreigners tend to think Americans all sound like they are either 1) Guidos from Jersey or 2) cowboys from a John Wayne movie.

    Because the accent most Americans regard as 'British', a well-to-do,formal,Home Counties style/BBC accent of south-east England carries with it connotations of education, sophistication, worldliness,and affluence.It has a sense of success and superiority about it.

    For me, the sexy 'British' accent is an educated Anglo-Scottish one; of the cities and counties of Edinburgh, Perth, Aberdeen, and Inverness.

    I find many American/Canadian accents sexy as well, though I would be hard put to distinguish any but the most obvious, for example, 'Southern',etc.

    I talk several times a day to a gorgeous british man, who happens to turn me on not just with what his says, but with the accent too. Hell he could say "I want you to shit in me mouth" and I would probably still get hard because of that sexy ass accent.

    Simply put, british and australian, sexy as they come. As far as biggest turn OFF, that would be spanish, which makes me want to gag and vomit at the same time.

    For me what makes an accent sexy is the depth and quality of voice at which it is spoken (nasality, thinness and a high unchanging pitch is less sexy).. the sing-songiness (melody, pitch changes and accents) and the rhythm (consonants, stress and vowel length).. this is what makes Italian such an attractive language on itself... that said... whether someone sounds sexy in an accent depends entirely on how the person is speaking it...

    For me sexy accents are Portuguese, Russian and Irish. The thick roll of syllables in Russian and Irish are really pleasing to my ear, and the musicality of Portuguese gets me too icon_smile.gif.

    Scottish too. But I've been exposed to more Scottish in my life than Irish, so, I'll take the road less traveled.

    I have a British (London, not Cockney) accent; I could see how a posh British accent could seem sexy because of its association with royalty (and high-class citizens), something that no other 'English' nation has, However, I much prefer an standard American accent lol. A Hawaiian accent is sexy too icon_redface.gif

    What about accents that turn you off? I'm not a big fan of the german accent even if I am 10% german.icon_lol.gif

    If a man has a sweet twang from Georgia or the Carolinas it turns me off immediately. A slower drawl from Mississippi/Louisiana or a rougher southwest cant from Texas is cool though.

    British, New Zealand and Australian accents are generally a turn off for me. It's not so much the accent as they way they string their sentences together that irks me (annoying), and I don't like it.

    I like most eastern european accents. Russian accents can be a HUGE turn on for me.

    A, for me its the other way around...

    Edit: I think that proves the point that part of an accents' sexiness is simply its exoticness to our ears
