A new survey has found that the Southern drawl is getting points for being sexy.

According to online daters polled on Cupid.com, a Southern accent is the most attractive among the ones found in the U.S. Forty-five percent of men and 28 percent of women said they found in the most appealing. A New York accent was the second most favorable, voted the best by 23 percent of women but only 10 percent of men. Western accents were also considered sexy by 16 percent of men and ten percent of women.

Regions like the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic got snubbed in poll, with only five percent and four percent of the votes, respectively.

Here is a possible example of why that Midwest accent received the snubbing!
