New Zealand is the place to be if you want to hear the sexiest sweet nothings.
A new poll has crowned the accent as the sexiest in the world.
Big 7 Travel surveyed over 1.5 million readers on which nation had the most attractive accent and New Zealand came in on top.
“To a novice ear, the New Zealand accent might sound just like the Australian accent, but Big 7 Travel readers disagree,” the website declared. “The ‘Newzild’ dialect is outrageously charming.”
Following close behind was the South African accent in second place, with Irish, Italian, and Australian rounding out the top five.
As far as the United States, the southern drawl got people’s hearts racing as it comes in the highest of all American dialects in the ninth spot.
The full top is:
- New Zealand
- South African
- South (USA)
- Brazilian Portuguese
Red Sox fans have something else to cheer as the Boston accent lands at #28, besting their Yankee rivals as the classic New York intonation only mustered enough chutzpah to make it to #44. Fuhgeddaboudit!
