Italian is the world’s sexiest accent, according to a poll conducted by CNN.
There are an estimated 7,000 languages on earth; CNN came up with 13 which “sound sexiest to native-English speakers” by using, admittedly, an unscientific method: asking around the office. They then compiled a list where Italian ranked first, before French and Spanish, second and third respectively.
This is why Italian is the sexiest, as described by CNN:
“Raw, unfiltered, 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.”
