In case you didn’t know already, Yorkshire folk are sexy as owt and there’s nowt you can do about it. Revealing what we already knew in a poll conducted by dating site Illicit Encounters, the broad male Yorkshire accent came out on top as the sexiest – with voters swooning over our regions men.
Making up the top 20% of all votes, Yorkshire beat the Geordies and Mancs to the top spot – with 2,000 people voting in total. At least, for men that is. For the male voters, they much preferred a Geordie accent on a woman – with only 11% actually finding the female Yorkshire accent attractive (compared to 18% who were mad for Geordies). Ouch. Talk about bad taste.
A spokeswoman said: “It is great to see that not only are regional accents still thriving but they can prove to be a massive turn-on.
“It’s amazing to find the Yorkshire and Geordie accents have got plenty of pulling power.”
