British accent abroad - aphrodisiac?

#1
Whether stationed abroad or just a holiday to foreign pastures, have you ever attracted female attention for having a British accent?

I'm under the impression the North American ladies are quite fond of it, as are our European partners (or should that be 'prospective'). Whether we have Captain Jack Sparrow and Jude Law et al to thank or is it simply our command of the English language?

I went to Leuven in Belgium two years ago (where they brew the wife beater) and one of the girls commented on my accent. I've also got to know a lovely Swedish girl who though it was 'sexy'. Not exactly a sizeable sample but a start nonetheless :D

A lot of British culture whether music, film or television is exported throughout the world and that factors in somewhere.

Was in Florida on tour for a while, chicks loved the accent but hated the smell of beer and puke. In Norway they loved us again, till one of the lads got stage fright due to the cold...

Did you find the accent instantly got your leg in the door so to speak?

..which you'd find in abundance across the pond. Although of course there are many attractive ladies over there. So did it take a lot of effort then even though you had the accent? Are we talking a case of Brit accent overdose?

Did I touch a nerve there guys?

Ljonesy, pitty your advice isn't widely distributed on a Saturday night. You'd probably solve half the disturbances.

Ozduke, ever considered getting a colouring book?

T_T mate, which British accent are you talking about mate? There must quite a few different ones as you can go to a different county and hear a different accent. Which also begs the question that if the English invented the English language how come you can't understand most of them. :? :wink:

Well, seeing as it's time for the Aussies to come on, and Im about to go to bed *yawns* ; )

Why do you start a sentence in low key and work towards ending it in high key? And stretch your wuuuuuuurrrrds longer than they need to be?

It's just that it's really *low key* irrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiii *high key* taaaatiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnng.

And get rid of the looooooong curly haaaaaaair. It's so 70's and Leo Sayerish ; ).

Well as plain an English/neutral accent as possible. Mate I can relate to not understanding many as I'm Welsh :wink:. Unless I'm mistaken many foreigners don't easily distinguish between the various English accents?

As an Australian, have you ever been mistaken for a Brit when abroad? I've know it to happen.

Well dude I would have no problem shagging your mom sideways and posting it on you tube.
Kudos to your hypnotherapist...I'd hate to break it to you but that ain't my Mum. Since you made good posts on another thread, please stay on topic or don't bother at all. The rules are clear here for everyone. Unless of course you were being facetious.

Um techno who in the hell would ask if an American girl would slut her self out because she heard you speak. There are sluts all over the place, if I were to go to Wales I would be sure to find some. If you really want to score go to Nebraska and go hoggin.

Why are you being defensive?

I wouldn't equate women liking certain accents and that making them slags. Clearly accents can play in someone's favour in certain places. Perhaps an American accent (or certain dialects) is popular in different locales. Believe me there are plenty of slappers down Cardiff which you'd be welcome to. 'Bout time we had a re-population down here.

What's so special about Nebraska, aren't they kind of shaggy over there?
