RE: Question for the Brits here...
I'd just like to say that as an American male with no accent to speak of myself, I absolutely adore female British and Australian accents. The British accent seems so demure and proper. The Australian accent seems so brazen and improper. Both are so alluring and sexy as hell!

It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.

Reminds me of an old joke here in the UK.
What's the difference between an Essex man and an Essex girl ?
Essex girl has a higher sperm count. Big Grin

As a brit, I'll chip in and say it's a combo of the person themselves and the area they were born in.

Most local accents are terrible, like just the worst. But those that actually try to clean up their accents for professional purposes, or even just to not sound like a complete tool, end up sounding great.

For "Foreigners", the nice ones among us try to put on a bit of a BBC accent, so you can understand us better haha. You know you're met a proper brit, when you have no idea what they've said Laugh out load

Folks,

To digress... My masseuse is a big South London girl. Smile She says that I'm very fit for my age.

I can take that in any accent. Thumbsup

RE: Question for the Brits here...
I read something interesting the other day on livescience.com about American vs. British accents. They said that accents in America are actually closer to the standard British accent back in 1776 than the British are today. One of the quotes from the piece says, "It is the standard British accent that has drastically changed in the past two centuries, while the typical American accent has changed only subtly." The crux of the story is that Hollywood has been portraying historical accents wrong for all of these years, and it goes into some detail about why they think this.

Accents are fascinating!
