The British Empire may no longer be the biggest on Earth, but the world still thinks their accents are the sexiest. A British accent is the world’s most attractive accent, according to a recent Time Out dating survey. A whopping 27% of 11,000 survey participants in 24 cities across the globe believe British accents easily outpace any other accent.

The United States placed second, with 8.7% of respondents voting that American was their favorite accent. Irish and Australian accents came in at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, meaning English-speaking languages rounded out the top four spots. Here’s the full list:

  1. British
  2. American
  3. Irish
  4. Australian
  5. French
  6. Italian
  7. Spanish
  8. Scottish
  9. Latin American
  10. Scandinavian

French, the language of love, placed a measly fifth; however, Frenchmen might prefer to cite the findings of a Hotels.com survey from 2013, which found that French was the world’s sexiest language. In 2009, Irish topped the list as world’s sexiest accent in a poll of 5,000 women; French placed fourth while British finished at No. 6. For now, though, the British accent can enjoy its reign.
