Jersey Accent Fifth Sexiest in North America?

So sayeth the experts at

A dating site called has released the results of a poll designed to answer the burning question: Which North American accent is sexiest.

The results:

1) Southern

2) New York

3) Western

4) New England

5) New Jersey

6) Canadian

7) Midwestern

8) Mid-Atlantic

The poll surved more than 2,000 men and women on the site. New Jersey’s fifth-place showing represented just 7 percent of respondents, about the same as Canada. Of course, the blurb for the last-place “Mid-Atlantic” region–which the site defines as “residents of Mid-Atlantic States from Nebraska to Pennsylvania” suggests that perhaps isn’t exactly employing a team of highly trained ethno-linguistic scientists in its data laboratories.
