- The West Country accent has been voted the least sexy accent for both men and women for the 2nd year running
- As many as 20% of men and 17% of women said that they wouldn’t date someone if they had an unattractive accent

The UK’s sexiest accents have officially been revealed.
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 750 men and women in search of the UK’s sexiest accents and it’s good news for Scottish blokes and Irish women, who garnered 24% and 26% of the female and male vote respectively.
On the other hand, people from the West Country looking for love are at a disadvantage the second they open their mouth; they received just 2% of the male vote and less than 1% of the female vote,
With that said, they should be used to it by now. In fact, they’re no stranger to this particular accolade; it’s the 2nd year in a row that they’ve had this honour bestowed upon them.
Other popular accents for men included posh (20%) and Irish (19%), while posh (21%) and Geordie (14%) were the 2nd and 3rd sexiest female accents.
Interestingly, as many as 20% of men and 17% of women said that an unattractive accent would be enough of an issue that they wouldn’t date someone.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains the popularity of the Scottish and Irish accents, and what exactly the people of the UK have against the voices of those in the West Country:
“As the results seem to prove, women tend to gravitate to accents that they associate with being manly and masculine.
“Take the Scottish for example; usually very deep, gruff, raw, and with tons of attractive Scottish celebrities to boot – Gerard Butler, David Tennant – while the posh accident exudes a certain level of status.
“From a man’s perspective, it’s a little less clear. Irish women topped the tree, but they were followed by the posh and Geordie accents; it’s hard to find a more eclectic mix of accents.
“What is clear is the qualities that men find attractive in a woman’s voice aren’t to be found when a woman from the West Country opens her mouth.”
