I’ve always wondered what foreigners think an “American accent” is. Is it Texas . . . Deep South . . . Midwest . . . New England . . . Valley Girl . . . or just a blend of everything? Well, whatever it is, a decent portion of people think it’s SEXY.
A new global survey by “Time Out” magazine asked people to name the sexiest accent in the world, and an American accent came in at #8. . Here are the ten sexiest accents in the world . . .
- English with 17% of the vote.
- French, 13%.
- Italian, 11%.
- Irish, 9%.
- Spanish, 7%.
- Scottish, 6%.
- Australian, 5%.
- American, 4%. The same survey a few years ago found we had the SECOND sexiest accent. So I guess we’re slipping.
- Brazilian, 3%.
- Japanese, 2%. (Time Out)
