24% of people admit they’ve been on a date before with someone whom they didn’t understand because of a thick accent.
Jessica Leoni sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “Looks like French has been dethroned entirely as the language of love, with Brits preferring German and Scottish.
I am unsurprised that Germanic is the most likely to arouse our British men, it’s dominant, icy – with a certain elusive quality, and isn’t it that men always want what they can’t have?
Scottish men. Scottish Accents. Need I say more, really? The accent is enchanting, like a seductive highland spell sweeping over you, it has a very primal sexual quality to it.
There’s no denying the Irish twang has always been popular, coming in at a respectable second and third place as the sexiest accent for both women and men.
Why do so many of us dislike the American accent? As Brits we’re known for being overly polite with a dry sense of humour, which is worlds apart from the awkwardly loud and foul mouthed American lingo. It’s insufferable.”
Members of IllicitEncounters.com voice their reasons for their vote:
Amelia, 28, Southwold
“I fancy the pants off the Scottish accent. It’s rugged, wild and uninhibited, just how I like it!”
George, 40, Bath
“I cannot resist a German accent, it’s so direct and formal, it creates fantasies of power and control. What’s sexier than a dominant, self assured woman?”
Harriet, 36, London
“French is like music to my ears, elegant and sophisticated. I find the French in general to be very passionate. Romancing in French possesses that certain je ne se quois that provokes lust you know? It’s irresistible.”
Vanessa, 50, Southampton
“I’ve always adored the South African accent. It is exotic, charming and unique. You can easily distinguish it in a crowd, it stands out.”
Patrick, 34, Manchester
“You just can’t beat an Irish accent. I think it’s the sexiest in the world.”
