I believe that there are many people who find certain accents sexy. Of course not everyone is like this, and I can't find statistics on it, but I
want to examine why this is true at least some of the time.
Having children with a cousin, or family member, greatly increases chances of child deformity. This is known of course, but in such a big & complex
social world, people might not know all of their cousins & family members. Also, even some cultures encourage cousin-marriages.
The accent-part comes in because, if someone has a different accent, they are likely from far away, and are likely to be less blood-related. It might
be an instinct to think a different accent is sexy, to make sure you don't have children with anyone related.
Of course there are differences. Some people might not like certain accents, and like others. Some might think Arabic accents are ugly because they
associate it with Radical Islam, for example, or not like East Asian accents because of other associations. Generally-speaking, I think many people
like different accents, and many think it is sexy.
Even in our English language, many people think certain accents are sexy. The Southern American accent, or East Coast America accent I find to be
attractive, even if I'm Midwestern. Lots of Americans love European accents, and so on.
I was just throwing out this idea. It makes sense to me. Any thoughts?
