I had a girls' night on Sunday and, as oft happens when we get together and have a couple of glasses of wine, the conversation turned to the shallow and superficial. One topic of discussion was which accents make a guy seem more attractive, and which ones less so.
The list we came up with:
Accents with a positive effect on attractiveness: Scottish, Irish, Spanish, Italian, any Scandanavian, Aussie, Kiwi, middle- or upper-class English
Accents that make an attractive man more attractive, and an unattractive man less attractive: French, German, Russian, Scouser, Manchunian, Geordie, Middle Eastern
Accents that have a negative effect on hotness: Newfie, hoser, southern US, New England, Bronx/Brooklin/Queens etc., cockney, Cornish
Neutral/no pattern: all Asian, Indian, South African
