lmao at Dudleeeeeeeeee :D Poor sods.

My only complete turnoff is American. My favourites are Scottish (especially Glaswegian), Welsh and Russian as well as most regional English ones (although broad Yorkshire puts me off - probably more because I hear so much of it in summer when Leeds relocates to the coast).

Ill be honest and say any woamn with a husky voice a la Bacall and Kathleen Turner is a real turn on.

No real turn offs voice wise, and given my ancestry Im not going to slag off a midlands accent.

Not keen on South African and West Midlands, love softer Scottish accents and North East, does anyone else remember Bailey who used to be on the old board?

i love the australlian and the irish accent even if i cant understand anything they are saying to me

however as a west country girl born and bred here are my humble thought of my own accent

.

1.) The accent. Its a unique selling point, who doesn't find a voice like a farmer fucking sexy?

2.) You'll never meet a thieving scouser

3.) You'll never sound like thieving scouser

4.) You'll never have a gun thrust in your face

5.) You'll never be mistaken for sounding like a brummie

6.) There's the piece of mind of knowing that we are further from scotland and france than most englishmen

7.) Cardiff is close enough to never to go to( but i love the welsh )

8)There's a bridge which seperates us from a another country

and for the Record

We don't all talk like Wurzles and besides, Bristolian was voted the second most friendly accent in the country.

We don't chew on grass.

We don't all live on farms.

We don't have brand new combine harvesters and if we did, we wouldn't give you the keys.

i often find myself saying any of the following gramatically incorrect phrases;

" where you to?"

"wheres it to?"

" where you going?"

"when you coming back?"

"when you going?"

" I would of"

" I could of"

" I should of"

"he could of "etc etc"

when you or your family and friends refere to others you use "our" in the front of their shortened name

e.g " our Laur", "our soph", "our vic"

but i still love the irsih and ausie accent and strangely enoughth a south african accent is quiet nice as well

Personally I wonder if the correlation is actually between those groups we dislike, as opposed to accents per se...

Obviously if you like an individual from a certain nation, and begin by 'association' to like all those from that country, then all things being equal you probably will NOT dislike (here read turn-off) their accents

Just a thought

I was discussing the Bristol accent on another thread and the fact that you Bristolians put the letter L on the end of words so that, for example, idea becomes ideal, area becomes areal while Bristol's ancient name was Brigstowe but eventually received the "Bristol L". Do you speak like that, Paris? I'd love to be addressed "My Lover" which is another expression common in Bristol.

Seriously, I agree that most West Country accents sound sexy and, as far as the fairer sex goes I find the South Welsh Valley's accent a turn on in addition to Geordie, Southern Irish (excluding Dublin) and the "Southern Belle" accent from the USA,typically found in Tennessee, Georgia, Louisiana etc.

Turn offs include the already mentioned West Midlands, Essex and Reading which dosen't seem to know whether it's West Country or London. Ricky Gervais speaks with a typical Reading accent.

I love soft accents. I find soft Geordie accents quaint, but don't care much for Brummie accents at all. The sexiest accents are French, Spanish and Italian, but I'm a sucker for a posh bird from Scotland.
