Oral Pleasure...

...nope, not that kind of oral pleasure

Everywhere I have travelled, people always come up to me and say that they love the Irish accent.

So what accent do you find the sexiest in the women (or men) folk???

I hate all English accents - the Irish accent which is pretty darn cool

My fav accents though are the American accents (the accent people in Boston have in particular)

The accent from Alabama is a little to slurred for my liking too ^_^

Can't decide. It's between English, Australian and Irish.

For me its the Australian accent. Used to be an Australian girl working in the pub next to my place.

In the end I just asked her to say something/anything. She was sooooo gorgeous.

Damn it, why didn't I make a move, when I had the chance

Welsh without a doubt, not a strong one because sometimes I can't hear what people say with strong accents. But a slight Welsh accent is darn sexy.

It's hard to say, although I'm certain that either Spanish, or Irish are the sexiest. Irish women have such a pleasant lilt to their voice On the flipside, Spanish is sooo sultry... two ends of the spectrum, so I guess it depends on my mood.

My favourite accent to immitate would have to be Scottish.

Accents aren't a turn on for me, but since I'm Italian, I picked the Italian accent.

See what I'm listening too.

Once again, a big dilema, cause am latin and love the spanish accent but if you mix it with the american, wich is full of down here in Miami you get a good mixture, a liite from here and i little from there. and i would like to exclude all the people from central america,they don't count they have "got" to learn to speak spanish correctly.

>>pointless random omit observation: most singers from any region seem to sound as if there from america when singing in english despite there accent when speaking regularly. do english speakers not from the us regard the plain speaking unitedstatesians as sounding like were singing when we speak in the same respect as most regarding irish as using a melody when they speak?

no offence, but i'm yet to meet an american whose accent doesn't make me cringe... i always thought people on film are supposed to play up accents, but whenever i've met americans in real life, the accent is far stronger than ever in films or on records. american singers don't sound american when they sing, with the possible exception of country & western... they sound like they're putting on a singing voice, which for the most part is completely different...

as for accents in general, i don't mind most, as long as i can understand what people are saying (i've not got great hearing, due to prolonged use of personal stereos)...

No offense taken. I on the other hand like the Scottish accent, but I can only understand one out of every two or three words of every Scot-filled movie.
Atmo (and the other Aussies) - here in America, until recently, we have had to make do with a subtitled version of the first Mad Max.

hehe, yeah Burnaway, we have a lot of slang words
what i meant was i've got no problem with the american accent, i just need to find someone that doesn't talk like that irritating woman out of "married with children" before i acknowledge that they exist... for some reason all the americans over here seem to speak like that, do you guys put on an accent for us?

I've been told by foriegners i have a bit of Los Angeles accent ... which terrifies me. (Like OH my god...gag me with a spoon)

I really like when women have Russian or english accents- and I know there are many english accent "divisions"... so in particular the one that Liz Hurley has.

Russian accents just floor me... although I must admit sometimes they also make my brain think of red alert.

i am yet to meet a single american that doesn't sound like her, that's all- i don't think that's what all americans sound like, but i've just next met one that doesn't. actually, scratch that, i know one that doesn't, but he sounds like elvis (weirdly enough)...

How dare no one even mention Japanese accents!? Funny, but cute and sexy too.

Anyway,
Italian and French: romantic
German: powerful
Scandinavian and Japanese: silly (in a good way)
Spanish: suave
English: formal, polite
Chinese: a little harsh (can't think of a better word)
Russian: hmm, possibly seductive, but I might be overgeneralizing
American south: friendly
American midwest: standard

That's why I find no more pleasure in Russian accents damned video game!

Even with so many choices, this poll is far too general. There are a great many regional accents within the United States, and all those other countries as well. French Canadians sound nothing like others from Canada or America. A chick from London will not sound the same as a chick from Newcastle or Birmingham. Well, you see my point.

For me, if I like the girl and I like her personality, I like the accent. Being from New York, I generally can't stand the outer-borough regional accent (think Bugs Bunny or Archie from All In The Family). It's an ugly accent for a girl.

Has anyone seen the movie Educating Rita with Michael Caine? During the course of her education the main character changes her accent several times as she becomes more "posh."
