What kind of poll is this? How can Canadian accents place #9? It's not sexy! And who even knows what a Canadian accent is, except other Canadians? Something in the milk ain't clean, I say. (I'm not saying Canadian guys aren't sexy.)

As for British accents, they're still pretty sexy, except for the ones I hear on those Essex and Chelsea reality shows...
Hey, I actually quite like the accent of the chappie Hugo in "Made in Chelsea". Besides, he ain't arf a tasty looking geezer as well!

Re: Sorry British Guys.....

I dont think men really care what a woman sounds like or even if she speaks at all, as long as its a woman. That is good enough for them!

Re: Sorry British Guys.....

Well only a man could answer you regarding the attractiveness of the female voice.
Personally I cringe when I listen to a high pitched strident voice, regardless of gender.

A low pitched voice with lilt and melody and a pleasant accent like the British one or the one in the southern part of the US or the accent around Toulouse, is so much nicer to listen to.

I think voice plays an important part in credibility when addressing a crowd for instance.

Re: Sorry British Guys.....

No, no, no! This is all wrong!!!

Where are the German men?

On the other hand, I see that the accent of Italian women is well positioned, hehehe

I hope so. I think it's the best of all the London accents. Not that I'm biased mind you.

Well, if one could understand the London accent that is.
I've met a fellow EFer from London the other day..and I was quite surprised, when she ordered a Bear (as in...bear, the animal)....upon asking her, why she wanted a bear , she insisted, that it's a drink....that's when I began to understand. She meant beer ..
