To be honest, it fluctuates with the person.

Yes, although alot of people I know love British accents. Personally I think Canadian accents are pretty funky.

Got to admit, I'm English, and a girl with a well spoke, posh accent appeals to me.... second would be French

Right. Any accent could be hot....except Southern Dixie. Or Bostonian. Or Irish/Welsh. Or Caribbean. Or broken-English in stereotypical east Asian. I'm picky.

I think almost every accent sounds good (as long as it is subtle enough to understand the other person).

Spanish or Irish.

For me it's the type of voice, not the accent.

British English with French as a close second, my least favorite is Sourthern (American) accents, they just sound so...ew.

#26 Posted by Razero (339 posts) - - Show Bio

Irish/Spanish.

Italian (I have a thing for Latin)

Scottish lilt

I like any accent. Its even hotter when they speak in their native language. As for the different accents in regards to English, it doesn't much matter. I tend to pull towards Australian but that's only because of Hugh Jackman and my GPS. ;)

As a general rule, french or romanian (think Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing) get me breathing hard. Might as well shout out to pretty much everyone in Dragon Age: Origins -- between Morrigan, Leliana, and Zevhran, it was like sex in my ears.

Agreed. Depending on how the person actually sounds can either ruin accents or make them desirable. And accents can come and go depending on the environment and people they hang with. The voice generally stays the same.

Southie accents have a special place for me. 
A woman with a thick Russian accent though is a huge turn on

Also a stereotype timid Japanese accent for a woman is a turn on... Especially if she turns out to be a ninja!!!!!

I took a trip to England about a few years ago, and was shocked to find out that a couple of people liked my accent. I'm American, I thought it was quite the twist when I HAD THE ACCENT. Also while trying to learn spanish my then girlfriend who is of spanish decent made fun of my american accent when trying to speak spanish

It's wierd if you think about it, while living in your nataive country you don't think you have an accent (and perhaps you technically don't) but when you go somewhere else, I guess you do, unless those few british people were just messing with me.

Anywho I like the spanish and italian accents and celtic accents.

It don't matter what country you come from, I'm a sucker for that just learning to speak english accent.

british accent. and an exceptional example: claudia black. voice of morrigan (DA) and chloe in uncharted.

#40 Posted by Sideslash (5994 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, so many people here like English accents...England has like a dozen accents people!!!!

And for everyone who said British, there's a dozen more!!!!

Personally, I like, in order:

  • Polish
  • Irish
  • Aussie

@Joygirl: ugh romanians dont have accents. trust me im one. the only differences in our languages (eng and ro)are a few grunt-like letters. maybe it sounds a little like some other latin languages like french italian only manlier. all of the attempts at ro on screen were a bit high pitched and with an italian accent.

I don't know if I find voices sexy, as long as they aren't horrible, I don't see the problem...now musician's voices, those can be sexy but it has nothing to do with accent I don't think

Texans don't really have an accent that is just the stereotype, but I am flattered. I personally think British, Swedish and sometimes Russian do it for me.

Wow so many people like the British accent (I should have it made considering i've got a Bond style one lol).

Anyways for me probably Swedish, Russian and Italian!
