SA accent voted sexiest!

Big7 Travel polled their readers across the globe to determine the world's sexiest accent for 2019.

When it comes to travel, the beautiful destination and the food are highlights, but so are the people and the colourful culture and language they use.

Guess what? The South African accent was voted the second sexiest accent in the world, thanks to the unique tones and Saffa slang.

New Zealand's Kiwi accent topped the list, while Croatian was voted as the least popular Slavic accent.


Top 50 Sexiest Accents according to Big7 Travel

1. Kiwi

To a novice ear, the New Zealand accent might sound just like the Australian accent, but Big 7 Travel readers disagree. The ‘Newzild’ dialect is outrageously charming. The sexiest accent in the world? It’s official.

2. South African

Afrikaans is a hugely popular accent with many people across the globe, thanks to their unique tones and Saffa slang.

3. Irish

Whether it’s a Jamie Dornan-esque Northern Irish accent or a lilting Cork jibe, people the world over love the Irish accent.

4. Italian

Completely beautiful, any word in Italian sounds sexy.

5. Australian

Pronouncing words long and slow – and often skipping the ends of them completely – is a real turn on apparently.

6. Scottish

Those rich sounds and harsh vowels are a big hit.

7. French

The language of love is a consistent winner when it comes to sex appeal.

8. Spanish

Incredibly fast and fluid, Spanish never fails to make you weak at the knees.

9. South USA

Who can resist a slow, Texan drawl? Not us, and not our community, clearly. You’ll also find this accent in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi,Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Kentucky.

10. Brazilian Portuguese

Brazilians have quite a strong accent, with Italian influences adding extra attractiveness to the accent.
