    ACCENTS!!!! Weather somebody is from Asia, Europe, Austrailia, The south, Puerto rico... when they talk.. and they have a deep accent.. does it bother you? to me.. im Cuban i speak spanish and french as my first two languages... And thankfully the hard accent is going away because ive been speaking english for 10 years or so.. but theres still an accent that lingers... is that a turn on? Ive always wondered when people look at my mouth with weird eyes when i talk, what are they thinking... What do you guys think of a guy with an accent????

    Turn-on, if I find the accent attractive. A classy British accent makes me melt. US accents from New York, New Jersey, Boston, and strangely, Oklahoma, are total turn-offs for me. Accents from around the world depend on the guy; some I find sexy, others unattractive. I think I can detect, even in a language I don't understand, good diction versus bad, clear speech versus sloppy. The same reason I can't abide hearing anyone from the New York-New Jersey area of the US - total trash talk.

    Vive la différence!

    I love hearing different accents, and I think it actually might be a turn on on the right guy.

    Having living in many cities across Mexico I do love hearing Spanish in different accents (The northen ones are my favorites), outside of Mexico, the Chilean accent is unbeatable.

    The same for English, because I smile the same whenever I hear it spoken with that sexy Texan accent or that gorgeous British one... and there is a good wide difference between the two.

    So, yes I appreciate accents.

    Complete turn off. I find them very "cute" but not sexy. The only accent I really like is Scottish. That's hot. I have dated guys with accents, but only after getting to know them long enough to get past their accent. Just to be clear and pre-empt an onslaught of hate, I don't hate people with accents, I just don't find accents sexually exciting in anyway. So many North Americans will sleep with the ugliest British man in the world, just because they go crazy for the accent. Love Actually got it spot on.

    my russian accent helped get me laid more than a few times heheh. some accents are great (east european, various latin ones, french for me), others are less so (french canadian or german anyone?). all depends on a guy ultimately though.

    I think NYC and New Jersey accents turn off the locals as well.

    I guess so, because I happen to originally have been a local from there myself. And I can't STAND my "native" accent! LOL!

    Depends on the accent. I love various American dialects, Canadian, French, Australian, and New Zealand accents.

    Some times I slip into my country boy Appalachian accent that confuses people, as few people in Cincinnati have it. When I travel out of the Midwest, people think I'm from the deep South.

    As for who finds it 'hot' or not, depends on the guy. I've had some guys go overboard in their fondness for my twang.

    Love accents. Even the country white-boy ones. My ex of 3 years was the most country bumkin' white boy from Alabama and had an adorable country accent. Today when i paid my cell phone bill, the customer rep had a very sexy spanish accent and was tall and built and handsome - he was so sexy!

    so ya accents rock.

    I am neutral on this. It is not the accent that is a turn on or off, its what is said and how it is said that does it for me. Regardless of language or accent. I like proper annunciation and grammar. Not a big fan of slang or when people throw "like" as every third word in a conversation.

    [size=10]YESS!! And the same thing with texting. I can handle "lol lmao lmfao ect" but how hard is it to spell out "to" instead of shift-2?? Speak normal with, decent grammar, and text the whole word!

    Accents, I get my midwestern/Cincinnati accent going when I'm drinking. I've been away for a few years and it only slips a few time the country accent. But when I'm drinking it all comes back. The "y'all" "aint". icon_redface.gif

    I think some accents can be hot, but it doesn't make a person. /size]

    It depends. I find most European and African accents very sexy. Some Southern accents are sexy and some are not. A drawl gets me hot, but a twang doesn't do much. Cajun accents can be pretty hot. I dated a Cajun guy once and when he got too excited I couldn't understand a damned thing he said, and that was before he switched to French in mid sentence. Very heavy Jersey and NY accents put me off. I have normally encountered them spoken with unnecessary aggression and volume.

    I enjoy most Canadian accents. Though, Newfie ones generally make me go WTF!? until I figure it out.icon_lol.gif Growing up in the Northwest, it never occurred to me that I might have an accent, but many of my coworkers here in Chicago told me I sound a little Canadian. I don't hear it, but I'll take their word for it.
