World's 12 Sexiest Accents Ranked by CNN

Recently  CNN ranked the world's sexiest accents,well this list comprises of the top 12 .check out the list below...

12. Argentine
Famous tongues:Fernando Lamas,
Gabriela Sabatini

A historical refuge for Spaniards, Italians and Germans, the hyper-libidinous South Ameripean melting pot of Argentina has cultivated a proud, pouty tone. With its own pronunciation of Spanish letters (“ll” sounds like “shh”) and its own words (“you” is “vos”), this is a dialect that’s hard to get.(Or at least plays that way.)

Sounds like: A tightly tuned guitar of G- strings strummed by a lamb shank

11. Thai
Famous tongues:Tony Jaa, Tata Young

With five tones comprising their native speech, the traffickers of this often fragile accent turn any language into a song of seduction. Thai is largely monosyllabic, so multi-beat foreign words get extra emphases right up until the last letter, which is often left off, leaving the listener wanting more. (Or at least asking “Huh?” lustfully.) Sounds like: R-rated karaoke

10. Trinidadian
Famous tongues:Nikki Minaj, Billy Ocean

For fetishists of oddball sexuality, the Caribbean island of Trinidad offers an undulating, melodic gumbo of pan-African, French, Spanish, Creole and Hindi dialects that, when adapted for English, is sex on a pogo stick.

Sounds like: A rubber life raft bobbing on a sea of steel drums

9. Brazilian Portuguese
Famous tongues:Alice Braga, Anderson Silva

Perhaps owing to its freedom from French influence, the Brazilian Portuguese accent has a more colorful, puerile flair than its coarser European counterpart.The
resulting yowl of drawn-out vowels reveals a flirty freedom of spirit that sounds like a permanent vacation.

Sounds like: The near, then far, then near again hum of a low-wattage vacuum cleaner that runs on dance sweat

8. U.S. Southern
Famous tongues:Matthew McConaughy, Britney Spears

There’s nothing sexy about being in a hurry, and you could clock the growth rate of grass with the honeyed drawl -- less Tea Party, more “True Blood” -- of a Southern beau or belle.

Sounds like: Molasses taking a smoking break

7. Oxford British
Famous tongues:Hugh Laurie, Sienna Miller

Authoritative.Upright.Erudite.Scholarly.Few accents promise the upward nobility of the Queen’s English.It’s a take on the language that sets hearts devoted to James Bond and Hermione Granger aflutter.And, should the speaker fail to slake your most wanton desires, eh, at least you’ll learn something.

Sounds like: A crisply ironed shirt playing a harp

6. Irish
Famous tongues:Colin Farrell, Andrea Corr Valued slightly more
in men than in women, the Irish brogue is a lilting, lyrical articulation that’s charming, if not exotic.Fluid and uplifting, it can swing from vulnerable to threatening over the course of a sentence, restoring your faith in the world again … right before it stabs you with a broken bottle top.

Sounds like: A marauding pixie

5. Nigerian
Famous tongues:King Sunny Adé, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde

Dignified, with just a hint of willful naiveté, the deep, rich “oh’s” and “eh’s” of Naija bend the English language without breaking it, arousing tremors in places other languages can’t reach.Kinda makes the occasional phone scam worth the swindle.

Sounds like: The THX intro with teeth

4. Czech
Famous tongues : Petra Nemcova, Jaromír Jágr

Like Russian, without the nettlesome history of brutal, iron-fisted despotism, Czech is a smoky, full-bodied vocal style that goes well with most meats. Murky and mysterious, the Bohemian tone is equal parts carnal desire and carnival roustabout.

Sounds like: Count Dracula, secret agent

3. Spanish
Famous tongues:Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz

Sensual and beckoning, but with the passion to unleash hell kept just barely restrained, Castilian is like a dialectic Hoover Dam.But then there’s the lisp.Tender, vulnerable and cute as a baby’s hangnail -- no one owns the “th” sound formed by tongue and teeth like those who speak the language of Cervantes.

Sounds Like: An outboard motor on Lake Paella

2. French
Famous tongues:Sophie Marceau, Jean Reno

The demotion of this perennial prizewinner of global brogues to second place may illustrate the declining sexuality of Old World petulance.Still, the come-hither condescension and fiery disinterest of the French tongue remains paradoxically Intimate.

Sounds like: A 30-year-old teenager

1. Italian
Famous tongues:Monica Bellucci, Alessandro Del Piero

Raw, unfiltered and as grabby to ears as its president is to rears, the Italian accent is a vowelgasm that
reflects the spectrum of Italic experience: the fire of its bellicose beginnings … the romance of the Renaissance … the dysfunction of anything resembling a government since Caesar. Insatiable, predatory and possessive, this is sex as a second language.

Sounds like: A Ferrari saxophone
