The Top Ten Sexiest Male Accents | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Which country comes top of the class for sexiness?

I was always told that a person’s personality is what counts. These latest findings seem to disagree. A recent survey asked 5,000 women worldwide what they thought was the world’s sexiest accent.

10. American.

Naturally at the top of the list, but we’re in reverse order. No wonder they import all their villans from abroad in Hollywood!


9. Welsh.

Welsh? I guess anyone that can pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyll must have a good tongue.


8. Spanish.

Ah that’s more like it. The Spanish diction strolls happily in at number eight.


7. Swedish.

Famous swedes… err… umm… Alfred Nobel?


6. English.

It says English as number six, and I have to ask if they mean the Hugh Grant English or the Noddy Holder english?


5. Australian.

Perhaps the dulcet tones of Clive James or Rolf Harris will make you weak at the knees for a trip down under? Australia makes it into the Top 5.


4. French.

Former favourite, France, had to settle for fourth in the survey. "The French accent is nowhere near as popular as it used to be. You can probably blame Nicolas Sarkozy  for that, he has single-handedly changed the perception of how the world sees French men.”


3. Scottish.

Sean Connery or Billy Connolly? Topping the audl enemy in third it’s the Scottish accent.


2. Italian.

Second place went to the lyrical tones of the Italian accent – perhaps it’s Flavio Briatore that does it for you?



1. Irish.

It seems that women swoon when they hear the accent of film stars such as Colin Farrell, with the Irish accent coming top of the poll

Colin Farrell

The survey also found that 60% of women admitted to being seduced by a man simply because of his accent. While 40% said they would much rather sleep with a man with a nice accent, compared to a harsh one.

I don’t know about you, but I’m off to perfect my Irish brogue.
