Sorry, all accents still make you sound like a moron*, with the exception of BBC presenter and Glaswegian woman.

*or gay if it's spanish

I have a British accent and live in the US.
I still manage to be terminally single.

Go me!

Hot to pick up the hottest women?

Chloroform... Just don't hold the rag over their mouth for too long.

I don't always pick up hot women...

But when I do, I speak with an Argentinean accent.

From experience, "Australian" accents work well. I have that in quotes because I have no idea what a real Australian accent sounds like having never been there, but can do a pretty convincing mock one.

I was at a Boston bar with friends. Three of us were at the bar watching two of our other friends trying to pick up some women at a table nearby. A woman friend with us was commenting on and critiquing their methods. That sparked a convo about what works and what doesn't. She mentioned having a sexy accent is an immediate door opener. So I started talking in a mock Australian accent for the rest of the conversation. Not 5 minutes later a woman next to me at the bar taps me on the shoulder and says, "I heard your accent... are you from Australia?" I played along for the rest of the night, making up weird stuff about the Great Barrier Reef, my favorite spots in and around Canberra, etc. I got her number and a good-night kiss. Unfortunately after leaving her a voicemail the next weekend to try to meet up, she called back and got my voicemail... which was me speaking in my normal accent. The tirade she left was just amazing.

accent is really overrated. being 'different' than the norm often helps the attraction.

Mention corinthian leather and they'll drop their panties on the spot.

Based on the nonstop flow of comments over the last 14 years, my wife's New Zealand accent is "Sexy".

NZ and Aussie accents on women are unspeakably sexy when they're born with the right form of said accent(think the aussie chick from Hall Pass)

But, much like british accents on women, when it's wrong.. DEAR GOD IT'S SO WRONG!!

I'm rather partial to women with a Northern English accent. It's got a little scottish, it's got a little welsh, it's very lyrical. I was melting all over the place when I was in the Lake District a few years ago.

The Worst english accent? Buckinghamshire working class. I met a guy from there who sounded like he was chewing on bricks. It's like a German trying to use a cockney accent. "Oi, watt haf yoo got thur? Uh Bir? Oi cud yoose a bir tuh, if'n yuh got one."

Argentinian? My understanding is that it is Spanish heavily influenced by Italian. I imagine it could be faked pretty effectively once you get a feeling for their idiosyncratic vowel sounds.

No Australian? Really?

At my last technical support job I ended up on a call with one of our users in Australia. I had to really concentrate on what he was saying because I kept getting lost in his accent.
 
2012-12-06 11:39:52 AM
Fark, I am dissapoint.

TFA is a stupid piece of Cosmo style page-filler shiat that should have no place on the Geek tab. It's a shame that it was submitted and greened. Who cares what a bored journalist thinks about sexy accents?

OTOH here is a study that was done with scientific rigor. It was done one year ago, but it is still newer than TFA, which BTW also appeared a week ago at CNN.com, with a few more words, and listing the Italian accent as #1, and stating that "First published August 2011, updated November 2012". 

Now everybody involved go and punch yourself in the face.

Oh and read my previous comment with a Hungarian accent.

Italian accents sound whiney

French accents are so sexy

Spanish accents are musical

Irish accents make me smile

Oxford English is too formal

U S Southern accents sound retarded

The rest I really have no opinion about

Brazilian sounds like they're whining to me. High pitched, nasal, with a touch of handicap mush mouth.

It's an Aussie news site, so they're looking at foreign.

As sn0wblind said (paraphrased): being from another place is a good start.

As a born-and-raised New Yorker now living in buenos aires, I can say that argentine girls love guys with American accents, and if you can also speak 'castellano rioplatense' (as they call their flavor of Spanish), you will have a GREEEATTT time in Buenos Aires.

or speak English in any accent in Russia. If you only care about having fun, and avoid the long psychotic breakdown every Russian woman seems to go through, it can work out nicely

For samples of Brazilian sexy speech they chose Anderson Silva?!?!?! WTF?!?!?! The dude sounds like Mike Tyson. Couldn't they have gone with someone like Rodrigo Santoro for example?

Sexiest accent ever:

It's not in English, but who cares?

A friend of mine is from Scotland. That accent gets him more hot women than anyone I've ever seen

I thought the sexiest accent was considered to be Marv Albert speaking German.

Dieter, du habst having einen dream. Yes!

6', 200 lb, blue-eyed, blond haired, speaking Mexican style Spanish was simple enough in Madrid but my Argentinian dough boy friend absolutely slayed with the ladies.

Sho no se.

If a woman who is into a guy because of an accent is a "shallow coont," wtf do you call a guy faking an accent to get laid?

/WinoRhino, well done sir. My complaint is entirely about the above post's assholery, and not your faking an accent. That's a good story.

I assumed the man wasn't faking the accent to get laid, so no beef with WinoRhino.

/Nice white knighting, though. I hope it gets you some.

To answer your question, I would call that man an asshole.
