Do people from other countries find American accents sexy?

Well...There's the southern accent, Boston, the "general" accent and so forth.

Are any of these accents remotely attractive? Or are they just painful for you guys to listen to sometimes?

For one thing, most people( american girls ) think a British accent or an Italian accent and etc on a guy is hot.

For girls and guys...is it attractive?

I'm from Canada and I personally cannot stand the "Southern" accent,

No offense to anyone but I just find it so Annoying.

However, most other Americans sound like they have no accent to me so I can't really answer the Sexy part of your question.

Certain accents on girls yeah. Not if they sound like a dumb LA bimbo. Heavy Boston is gross on women. Slight southern accents are cool.

I used to live in the US, so I still have a slight american accent mixed with an english accent. But I always cringe when I hear an american accent...

ITs kinda hard to explain... but the ones i find most annoying are southern and that kinda Los Angeles accent. I dont know if thats the best way to explain it, but i know people with it from there. The rest arent too bad.

some american girls like it, like girls from other parts of america. it's difficult to turn mine on, i have to be back in the south. i adapt accents easily, but i can't usually turn them on and off at will. i've been trying to perfect my english accent for picking up girls. the key is consistency and subtlety.

i don't mind Southern accents at all (being obsessed with southern rock may have something to do with it).

though north-eastern accents do annoy me a bit. like joisey accents and pennsylvania dutch accents.

though in retrospect, it really doesn't matter.

i am from the mountains of NC, i sound like a "Deliverance" character. Of course, that's because I actually starred in "Deliverance"


jk

EDIT there are different types of southern, as it crosses a large area. Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama is like Matthew McConnaughey; Texas is midwest slowed down a bit; Lousiana and Arkansas is like James Carville or Foghorn Leghorn; Tennesse and Kentucky tend to use southern idioms, but a weak accent. My area of NC is the stereotype comics make a living on. Hard on those "r" sounds, like a pirate crossed with Larry the Cable Guy who is about to go on Jerry Springer. Can't tell much about Virginia and West Virginia, they all sound accentless except down in the southwestern corner. Damn I put too much work into this edit...

I don't mind southern accents. Likely because my mom's whole side of the family is from the south. My uncles and my grandma all have southern accents.

As for finding American accents sexy...well, given that i'm American, i don't typically get a stiffy when i hear the girls i know talk. If i had to pick an American accent, though, I'd say southern. It's not as harsh as the northeastern accents, and the way people talk here in California is either without an accent or like obnoxious valley girls. And I shouldn't even have to say anything about midwestern accents

NOTE: To anyone I just offended: It was an accident, but I'm not sorry.

I have an american friend with the general accent and it doesn't really effect me, as in I sort of half notice it, but I don't hate it nor do I love it, it's just the way she talks. However, she thinks that my (Australian) accent is sexy

I like the southern accent though, but I don't find it to be sexy. I just like the sound of it.
