Getty/GoogleSexiest accent: British men have been deemed the best for American women
The sexiest accent for men has long been disputed, with Italian or Australian often suggested to be a butterfly-inducing voice.
These have since been quashed as a new survey revealed that the tones of one country are the best in the world, according to American women.
The MissTravel.com survey found that the sexiest accent a man can have is, in fact, the British accent.
Sadly, the British accent for women, voted for by American men, didn’t make the top list.

Of 1,423 women, 38 per cent admitted they liked the British accent the best.
Of these women, 18 per cent specified they likes the dulcet tones of a Scottish man; the other 20 per cent didn’t specify which parts of Britain they liked the best.
The other accents to make the top list for women looking for a male suitor included Spain and Australia.
One British man who has taken advantage of his sexy accent is Prince Harry, having recently got engaged to American actress Meghan Markle.

British women sadly didn’t make the list for American men
British women sadly didn’t make the list for American, with Israeli being the surprising top choice at 19 per cent.
According to the 1,164 asked, the other best accents include Colombian, Australian and French.
Brandon Wade, CEO and founder of MissTravel.com, commented: “Accents have a tendency of taking our minds to unknown and exotic places, adding a touch of mystery and intrigue to the speaker.
“As Americans, we often associate British accents with intelligence and class, both desirable qualities for a mate. While Israeli accents conjure up images of the Mediterranean.”
