Here's What You Need to Know About People With a Voice Fetish

Some people like jawlines. I like vocal registers.

Accepting any and all applications with accents.

“Let me be clear: the sound that comes out of a man’s mouth is the only deal maker or breaker I am a thousand percent ruthless about. If I encounter a very sultry speaker, it won’t matter that he owns only two T-shirts and counts one of them as formal wear. If, though, I’m greeted on a first date with a shaky, ‘Oh, hi,’ I don’t care if he’s Brad Pitt—you better believe I’m leaving 20 minutes later because my roommate’s non-existent cat, Cornelius III, is missing.
Now, obviously, most people can’t change their range or control any speech issues they may have been born with (FWIW, I couldn’t articulate ‘r’ until middle school). So I never judge or point out less enticing (to me) tenors. I’m just saying that I like what I like, and what I like is when guys with gravelly voices *also* add some assertive swagger to their delivery. Husky, commanding baritones = take me now, and narrate every sweet move along 
the way.
Like, sometimes, I’ll catch myself panting while watching a specific Nicholas Sparks movie (OMG that accent, Liam). And if a stranger confidently asks me, ‘Is this seat taken?’ in a deep rumble, my nipples literally perk up. 

This is why I always insist on pre-date calls with any prospects I meet online. If someone’s voice can make my vagina sing over the phone, I’m horny until he’s buying me a drink. But if I’m not into what I’m hearing, I’ll hit him with a ‘My ex recently came back into my life, so sorry’.
I even canned one guy—who used a damn good throaty whisper to hide our chats from his nosy roommates—into four (four!) phone dates before we met up in person. I really didn’t want his normal voice to ruin the aural fixation I had with him. Guess what? It did.
Listen, I know I sound... particular. But before you cast me off as shallow, think about your own fixations. Is it possible you won’t go out with anyone who’s under 5’6”? Or who bites their fingernails? Or who wears shoes with no socks? To each their own.”

Kourtney Kardashian
You know how when some people talk on the phone, their voice shoots up, like, four octaves? That’s KK. But 24/7/365


Antoni Porowski
I can’t with words that get squeakier at the end. Like, is every one its own question?


Ryan Reynolds
Unquestionably hot. With a voice that’s unquestionably ‘not’ all.

Henry Cavil
His low groans and ‘Hmms’ in The Witcher are the only things I want to hear between the sheets.


Henry Golding
Ah, just the right blend of ‘Why, yes, I am foreign’, and ‘No, my pitch never gets high.’ 


Sophia Bush
Her subdued, raspy voice always has and always will make me question my sexuality.
