Yorkshire Men Have The Sexiest Accent In The UK, Poll Reveals

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.”
