The Irish accent is the world’s sexiest brogue, according to a survey conducted by OnePoll.com. The world’s second and third sexiest accents are Italian and Scottish.
The French accent, thought to be the world’s sexiest, is notably missing from the top three spots; a spokesman for One Poll blames French president Nicolas Sarkozy:
“The French accent is nowhere near as popular as it used to be,” he said. “[Nicolas Sarkozy] has single-handedly changed the perception of how the world sees French men.”
The study also found that over 60 percent of women had been seduced by men because of their accents, and over 40 percent prefer men with ‘sexy’ accent than harsh burrs.
The world’s top 10 sexiest accents are: 1 Irish; 2 Italian; 3 Scottish; 4 French; 5 Australian; 6 English; 7 Swedish; 8 Spanish; 9 Welsh; 10 American.
One-half of Kipp’s team insists an Arabic accent is sexier than at least two the brogues mentioned (namely Australian and Swedish). The other half disagrees.
