This brings back memories of an
old comercial-
"oooooooooo Alberrrr--tho"

Does anyone remember that
comercial about shamoo or
was it another hair product?
Anyway, the models run their
fingers thru this guy's hair and
say "oooooooo Alberto"

i really don't find foreign accents sexy
ultimately, they do nothing for me
however, i personally find french and singaorean accents rather irritating! (no offense yertle-the-turtle...my husband is a singaporean if it makes you feel any better)

God knows everyone loves a good Joisey accent though

My only problem with foreign accents is that it's difficult for me to gauge the sincerity of a person who speaks differently than me because I can't read all the little nuances that go into determining that...so it has to happen more on a gut level.

That said, I can hardly get a date here but when I spent a few months in Europe I sometimes had multiple dates in one day and got a few marriage proposals. And then there was the Italian I met in Machu Picchu, Peru, who nearly did me in. (That one has actually evolved into a lifelong friendship.)

So yeah, I guess I am a sucker for an accent.
