Video: Men Incapable of Making Their Voice Sexy: Study
ABC ^ | 4/23/14 | Paula Faris

Posted on 04/23/2014 8:49:46 PM PDT by smokingfrog

A new study by Albright College finds women can more easily make their voices sound attractive.

According to a new study by Albright college, men are incapable of intentionally making their voices sound sexy. 20 women and 20 men tried to make their voices sound sexy.

Another 40 people judged whether they achieved that goal. And found that the women easily outperformed the men. Why is it so difficult for men?

I mean, even a cartoon, Jessica rabbit, can do it. Researchers know, that to men, an attractive voice is often linked to physical appeal. While men learn that what attracts women is confidence.

In the Brady Bunch movie where Gregg and Marcia are sharing the same bedroom with only a light piece of cloth separating them, Marcia sees Gregg undressing and her voice immediately drops two octaves, Gregg jumps and stares at her, she then returns to her normal voice.

I will say that actress definitely knows what sexy is.

Something tells me that women who crow about this are aroused by both notions, that of women making their voices sexy and men being incapable of it. Insecure people need to feel validation no matter how obscure.

what’s in the wallet is more important to women than the guy’s voice.

Women have so many more options — they can coo, whisper, be playful, scintillating, be flirty, be suggestive, be breathy.

What can men do? Lamely try to lower their voices an octave and not sound nasal?

My favorite of all time was my girlfriend leaning over and nibbling my ear at a stoplight while whispering to me. I playfully asked “And just what are you doing?” Without missing a beat, she said “Making her jealous” and nodded her head at the girl stopped next to us.

Oh no they are wrong. Women are attracted to a sexy voice a man. But, like everything else, you either have it or you don’t. You can’t fake it.

I always assumed women thought Rod Serling’s voice was sexy.

Serling created the “Twilight Zone” in the 1960’s, and he had extensive experience in radio before that.

Any ladies here at Free Republic remember Rod Serling and have an opinion on his amazingly distinctive voice?

So what if women can make their voices sound sexy. All men are born with the ability to imitate the sounds of internal combustion engines, machine guns, explosions and flatulence. No woman can do that.

Sure I remember Serling.

But I didn't consider his voice particutulary intriguing.

Now Sam Elliott...that is a different story. :)

I once saw on one of those old tabloid shows a segment about people who earn a living talking dirty to men over the phone. One was a male Marine. He affected a phony female voice and his male customers didnt know the difference. The Marine was straight, he did it just for the money.

One night in a seedy biker bar, I heard, clear as day, Patsy Cline singing “Crazy”.

I quickly made my way toward the sound, only to find a short, fat, bald, baby-faced man crooning into a karaoke microphone.

Talk about cognitive dissonance.

No argument.

Connery did a voice over in a movie about a dragon (can’t remember the name). He was great.

That would be “Dragonheart”, once considered the best visual depiction of a Dragon in cinema, but long since overshadowed.

His voice is not quite as iconic.

I swear, Elliot is a like a dog whistle.

I can be paying utterly no attention to the TV but as soon as he speaks, my head snaps around to look.

;D
