We're actually very surprised to see Scottish accents ranking so high on the sexiest accents for men. Wasn't Fat Bastard from Austin Powers Scottish? He didn't sound all that suave, but who knows, maybe that wasn't exactly accurate. Anyway, we're obviously more focused on the women. We definitely tend to agree with Israeli and Colombian — Gal Gadot and Sofia Vergara, anyone? As per Brandon Wade, CEO and founder of MissTravel.com:
“Accents have a tendency of taking our minds to unknown, and exotic places, adding a touch of mystery and intrigue to the speaker. As Americans we often associate British accents with intelligence and class, both desirable qualities for a mate. While Israeli accents conjure up images of the Mediterranean."
Makes sense! We will say that we're surprised Italian didn't find its way to either list! Isn't that one of the major romance languages? Oh well, we'll focus on what we've got in front of us. That's plenty to keep us busy through the new year!
