zarker: A couple of you seem to be confused, men can totally HAVE sexy voice, but nobody can do that weird bedroom voice right


The word you are looking for is "sultry".  Men absolutely cannot do a "sultry" voice.  We also can't do "come hither" looks either.

Men, however, can do "passionate" voices and "intense" looks fairly well.

Lots of farkers here failing to recognize the distinction between having a sexy voice and doing a sexy voice.  Which is to say, if you don't sound like Barry White all the time, then you're not doing yourself any favors trying to sound like Barry White some of the time.  So stop that.

Science is wrong on this one. Sexy is quite subjective.

jamiekate: catusr: My wife gets wet whenever she hears Alan Rickman speak.  She also thinks Peter Dinklage has a great voice.

Your wife is correct. .fell for alan rickman after seeing sense and sensibility. ..and then there is tom hiddleston. Wowza


Hell yes. There's something great about Rickman's sound, even though he's usually got deadpan roles. And Hiddleston? Oh my Loki...


Shadowknight: If there was no such thing as a sexy voice, I doubt Benedict Cumberbatch would have the intense female following he does.  I mean, yes, he's by all accounts a great great actor and a great guy and a sense of humor about himself.  But, as someone on Fark put it, he "sounds like a panther trapped in a cello."  The man has a voice that could melt butter.


Stealing that line so very much. I got a kick out of his work as Sherlock, loved with what he did with Khan in the most recent Star Trek movie (even though the film itself was "meh,") and I really need to rent the second Hobbit film because I am looking forward to what he brings as Smaug.

If this is true, then why does my wife slide right off the bar stool every time she hears Sam Elliott's voice?

They said the subjects were asked to try and sound sexy. To me, that sounds like the subjects did what they thought would sound sexy, and were just 100% off the mark and deluded in thinking that what they were doing was sexy.

If there was no such thing as a sexy voice, I doubt Benedict Cumberbatch would have the intense female following he does.  I mean, yes, he's by all accounts a great great actor and a great guy and a sense of humor about himself.  But, as someone on Fark put it, he "sounds like a panther trapped in a cello."  The man has a voice that could melt butter.

They certainly aren't going after his looks, which are curious at best.

When a guy is in love, his voice changes. And it can get quite sexy. Woman pick it up right away.
