ome people could make even the phone book sound sexy. Maybe it's the tone of their voice, the way they talk or a sexy accent. This trope doesn't just apply to sexy voices: any sound that turns you on goes here.

Feel free to Gush About Voices You Like. Examples about your personal life go on the Troper Tales subsection.

Edit

  • DAMN, that Aussie chick's voice from the Buell Smart Oven commercials. I have to mute it 'cuz otherwise I get squigglies... Mmmfh!

Anime & MangaEdit

  • EDWARD. *honk*ING. ELRIC. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! (you'll have to excuse this troper, for she has heard far too much of the first anime's dub to go and watch the original Japanese now. Vic Mignogna = L-O-V-E!)
    • Vic's is really quite amazing, it is true. It's very distracting when he voices characters I don't harbour PSL for.
    • Third on this one. (Here's a flash game featuring Ed, made by some obsessive genius fangirl on deviantArt. You click, he makes cutely suggestive sounds. You're welcome. [1])
      • I...I feel so creepy, but on the other hand, grinning like woah.
  • Zolf J. Kimblee in the Japanese version of the second anime. You can literally hear him orgasming to the sound of distant explosions, and it induces the same feeling in you through the power of his voice alone! "Ii oto da" indeed...
  • This troper had little interest in Chiri's voice, preferring Kiri's airy lines or Matoi's deeper lilt, until he heard Chiri's rendition of the Zetsubou Sensei Drawing Song. Wow.
  • The dub voice for Ouran High School Host Club's Haruhi.
    • Just Haruhi?! Try the entire main cast sans Honey!
    • Kyouya in particular, for this Troper. I'll be in my bunk.
    • For this troper, it's Kaoru's.
    • This Tropetter has a thing for Mori's voice. Both versions. So low and deep and mmmm~!
  • Both the Japanese and English voices for xxxHOLIC's Yuuko.
    • And both of Doumeki's voices.
  • Mary Elizabeth Mc Glynn as Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. This Troper could die happy if he ever met her in real life... quite possibly Out With A Bang from her voice alone..
    • Seconded.
    • Thirded.
    • Fourthed.
    • Fifthed.
    • Sixth...can I be six? There's also her so-called counterpart Atsuko Tanaka.
  • Sayaka Ohara as Beatrice. Pure dominatrix win.
    • I keep telling people: Seriously guys, Ohara definitely had a lot of fun as Beatrice. ** Yukari Tamura's muted and slightly disinterested tone as Bernkastel is what does it for me. Especially her giggle.
  • Pick a role played by Show Hayami. Just pick one. No matter what he is saying, especially as a certain Magnificent Bastard, it always sounds like he's trying to get someone in the sack.
  • KAZUYA NAKAI. Kazuya f***ing Nakai (Squees.)
  • This troper sincerely hopes that she isn't the only one who Squees a little bit when she hears Brook talk. His singing voice is utterly adorable, too.
    • Oh my, yes. And let's not forget Ryuuma, who is basically the exact same voice...but evil!
    • On the female side of things, Robin...I had to rewind to make sure I heard it right when she made comments about Nami being a "naughty girl".
    • This male troper's got a recently-revealed (as of this post) example of this trope in the anime: Monet's voice...ooh... Really fitting, considering her flirtatious-sounding speech patterns. This troper has already said this, but if this troper was a cat, he'd be purring. Soundly.
  • This troper watched the english version of Bleach episode 166 for the awesome of JYB kicking ass as Ichigo and to my pleasant surprise, what do I hear stroking my mind with pure unadulterated squee and hubba-hubba? Laura Bailey as Tia Harribel. Ahhh... Yeah...
  • Dubbed Renji's voice. Sadly, his voice actor is... ecch.
    • Same with Doug Erholtz doing Gin Ichimaru. This troper swears she could listen to him discuss economic affairs or read the phone book, for hours, if he does it with that sly purr...*sigh*
      • Oh, this troper thought she was the only one...
      • His Japanese voice is pretty hot too. Damn you, voice actors who make me sit on my edge of my seat for even the briefest period in which Gin shows up simply to hear his VOICE.
  • Is this troper the only person who finds Rip Van Winkle's voice to be rather sexy in the english dub of OVA 4?
    • Nope, that's the power of Kari Wahlgren for you. This troper could also go gay for Crispin Freeman and his magnificent voice, especially as Alucard.
    • This Troper finds Crispin Freeman sexy as well, but he pales in comparison to Joji Nakata, who makes her feel wibbly and weak in the knees with the slightest sound. During and after that scene in OVA III when he brainwashes the hotel clerk, she was surprised to find herself muttering alternately "Yes, Master" and "I've been a naughty girl" and when she witnessed him in his Vladcard form in the OVA, she simply couldn't stop herself from squeeing and shouting "YES!" repeatedly. She also finds that Walter, Integra, and Pip's VAs produce similar effects on her and is quite sure that she would embarass herself if she ever met any of them in person.
    • Speaking of Hellsing, Ralph Lister, Walter's dub VA, sets quite a few hearts fluttering. How can someone stay sounding so soft and courteous when he's taking out and entire battalion of ghouls?!
  • This Troper can't be alone in finding L's voice incredibly sexy, can she? That drawl...
    • If you're talking about the English dub voice, then you are totally not alone. This troper honestly believes L could undress people with his voice... if only because that's what it feels like to listen to.
    • This troper doesn't like guys, but if he did, he would find L's dub voice sexy as hell.
    • This is the same troper from three posts down. She could listen to those two talk all day.
    • Mello in almost any language (that laugh!), and Near's English dub voice. As one fangirl put it, "Why do I find Cathy Weseluck's Near voice so sexy? I don't find actual people sexy... just this voice when it's attached to a fictional representation of an asexual white-haired pajama-wearing sarcastic boy genius."
    • Seconding Near's English voice so much. It's just so ffff.
    • Third-ing Near's English voice. She especially likes the way he prounounces "hard 'k'" sounds. (i.e., "notebook", "mistaken", etc.) Curse you, Cathy Weseluck! She's so glad that he's nineteen, and not ten like many others (and herself) thought. *cough*
    • Asexual?!?!NOO!
    • Mello in almost any language except English.
    • L's Japanese voice. That low, smooth, mumbling...mm, it's like sinking into a soft pillow.
    • This Troper honestly prefers Light's English voice, especially when he is angry...
  • This troper is in love with Mamiko Noto's voice.
  • Takehito Koyasu has one of the sexiest voices in anime. Take a listen to Luck Gandor, for example — woof.
  • This troper can't help but think Yukari Fukui's voice is adorable! I'm also rather fond of Soichiro Hoshi's Hot Blooded voice. And, oddly enough, Ooishi's voice is strangely alluring to me. Takano and Eva? Sound like they're trying to get someone into bed.
    • Seconded for this Troper on Soichiro's voice, who thought she was alone. A huge part of why she adores Keiichi so much!
  • This (straight, male) Troper has had Koizumi Itsuki's character song stuck in his head for the whole day. And even though I am straight and male, I must say, that voice...well...
    • Dear above Troper: Thank you for that link. You are a good man.
    • On a related note — Yuki's voice isn't too bad either, although I prefer her speaking voice.
  • Yami freaking Bakura. Come on, people, I can't be the only one who loves that voice.
  • Germany's voice has been known to induce this in multiple fangirls. While this troper does agree it's sexy, her personal favorite is Russia's. Especially when he drops to a much lower tune in his rendition of the ending theme... Rrrr...
    • This tropers personal favourite is Masaya Onosaka as France. Seriously, just listen to his character songs and you'll see what I mean.
    • This troper seconds this notion. France's English dub voice is also incredibly sexy... Mmm, his accent~
    • Dub!Spain's voice. GOOD. GOD. That "Hola, mi hermano" in the English dub, with that accent and how low it was...! Hell, pretty much all the dubbed accents induce massive feelings of squee, especially England's and Russia's. For the Japanese version, Germany's Drill Sergeant Nasty voice, Russia's adorable high Psychopathic Manchild tone, Japan's smooth singing voice...Mmmmm~! I'll be in my bunk.
    • How has NORWAY not been mentioned? The guy may be one of the only characters that has clips on youtube- with thousands of views, mind you- featuring nothing but him saying something. Anything.
  • Ogiue from Genshiken takes care to speak Tokyo dialect, but when we hear her Inner Monologue, it's in the cutest Tohoku Regional Accent. When this troper heard her "Baka!" — instant PSL. Have a listen.
  • Miyuki Sawashiro's voice either made me realize I'm gay or inspired Stupid Sexy Flanders (still trying to figure out which). Either way, I want that voice in my ear telling me what she's about to do to me. I first heard it as Cal Devens from Requiem for the Phantom, and then was delighted to recognize that purr as Celty from Durarara.
  • Listen to Hei's voice from the dub of Darker Than Black, and then sit back and watch the fangirls melt.
  • From the Speed Grapher dub, either Saiga or Ginza's actors.
  • Brina Palencia's Holo the Wise. It's rather vexing she's not mentioned here.
    • Ami Koshimizu's original as well. Her performance focuses more on the cuteness and sultriness, and also uses a very unique archaic speech pattern based on courtesans. The result is dead sexy.
  • This troper gets very excited from listening to both Graham Specter and Claire Stanfield speaking in the dub.
    • Claire does indeed have a very sexy dub voice. This troper also gets tingles every time she hears dub Firo's lazy, New York-accented lilt.
    • OH GOD SECONDED!!!!! Especially with dub!Graham! "Takin' it apart apart apart apart apart apart..."
  • Anyone, yes, anyone voiced by Michelle. She can Ruff This Troper up any time.
  • This Troper would like to proclaim her love for Roy Mustang's voice. So commanding~ ...And Lust ain't too bad either.
    • Not to mention Greed, with that sexy, predatory, evil-but-not evil voice he gets as Greedling in the Japanese dub.
      • Seconding Greedling, so much. This troperess was absolutely riveted by his dramatic entrance in episode 56, with his dark hair blowing in the wind and his voice all intimidating and smugly heroic... *shivers*
    • This troper hopes she isn't alone in finding Envy's English voice very attractive. Moreso in the first series, when it wasn't (almost completely) raspy like in Brotherhood, but, regardless...
  • Kotono Mitsuishi for this troper. Especially when she is voicing strong female characters like Mireille from Noir or Murrue from Gundam Seed.
  • Kuroko. Oh God, Kuroko. It's definitely a Love It Or Hate It thing, though.
  • Your Mileage May Vary on Kyle Hebert's performance as Kamina, but you have to admit that the voice he used to play the character is REALLY damn sexy.
  • Edward Elric in the original Japanese. Particularly ironic because I started watching Brotherhood because I heard Vic Mignogna speak at a convention and was turned on by his voice.
    • Speaking of Brotherhood's dub, this troper got shivers when Lanfan spoke to Gluttony in a recent episode, saying "Don't bother running." In a rather husky, fierce, I-will-end-you kind of voice. Who'd run from that?
  • What about Lust's dub voice. That voice is borderline God for this troper.
    • OH GOD YES. Stupid, sexy Laura Bailey!
  • Just try and tell This Troper that Tonegawa's seiyuu doesn't have an incredibly appealing voice. Made all the more so by the fact that he sings the ending theme, a slow, husky blues number. Oh, my.
  • When Mamoru Miyano is playing more serious characters, his voice is delicious. And have you heard his singing voice? *le sigh*
  • I have a raging man-crush on Sohma Akito's voice in the Japanese version of Fruits Basket.
  • The person who sang the theme song for DN Angel has the singing voice of a god.
  • Norio Wakamoto's voice is hammy and awesome. This is no secret. His earlier days as Coach from Gunbuster? This trope. Dead. On.
  • Maaya Sakamoto as Shiki Ryougi. Also, Maaya Sakamoto as Haruhi Fujioka. Also, Maaya Sakamoto as Mari, Hitomi, Rip.. etc.
  • Yukari Tamura. Despite the staggering amount of Loli characters she's ended up voicing, she is definitely able to pull this off with some of her "older" characters. Bernkastel in particular has her as a good example of her "mature" voice.
  • Dan Green as Pharaoh Atem from Yu-gi-oh. It's his best role, and is incredibly sexy!
    • Agreed. As is Atem's Season 0 voice
  • Petrea Burchard as Ryoko in the Pioneer dub of Tenchi Muyo (and its related series/movies). Holy freaking goddamn, that voice was aural sex before I even knew of the term. And it's part of the reason I have a specific affinity for Ryoko: her goddamn voice can turn me to butter.
    • This troper misses her...
    • As a hardcore sub fan, this is what keeps me stuck on the dub. Ryoko's just not Ryoko to me without that voice.
  • As one may very well imagine, the Pokémon games have no voice acting, but the Pokémon girls in the English anime dub... that's a whole different story. In particular, if this troper ever hears May sing, they may have to get their memory of it erased just to stay sane.
    • Mewtwo voiced by Phillip Bartlet was just wonderful.
  • Masako Katsuki anytime. Even The Girls Want Her?
  • Meta-Knight anyone? Doesn't help that his dub VA already voices several other hot guys in other dubs.
  • The guy who sings this ending of Yu Yu Hakusho.
  • Yoshiko Sakakibara, anywhere but particularly in Hellsing. Also, Mayo Suzukaze as the title character in Rurouni Kenshin, when in "serious" mode.
  • Joji Nakata and Chris Sabat. That is all. <3
  • Bardiche. 'Nuff said.
  • Howl in the English dub. Insane drama queen has never sounded sexier.
  • This female troper is ashamed of you all. How the hell Daisuke Ono has not been mentioned on this page astounds me. When I heard him voicing Sebastian in the Japanese dub of Kuroshitsuji I think I lost my virginity. "Yes my Lord" indeed.
    • Seconded. This female troper is disappoint in all of you.
    • Sebastian's voice has no effect on me, but if it's Shizuo.....HNNNNNNNGH
  • Crispin Freeman as English dub!Uchiha Itachi. Hell, Crispin Freeman as anyone, from Iron Man to Kyon. I'd kill to have chords like that.
    • Oh yes, seconding Crispin Freeman. Especially as Siegfried and Koichi. <3
    • This troper absolutely hates Naruto, but would willingly watch any episode featuring Itachi simply because he is voiced by Crispin Freeman.
    • Kakashi's English dub voice actor, Dave Wittenberg, mentions in an interview, that the voice he uses for Kakashi is not exactly his own... it's more "that breathy low-register thing". Further elaboration seems unnecessary; I'll be taking a cold shower if you need me.
    • Crispin as Shizuo Heiwajima (with a little help from Johhny Yong Bosch as Izaya Orihara) in the Durarara dub convinced this troper to prefer the dub. An especially high accolade from her when one considers his Japanese seiyu is Daisuke Ono, who sends shivers down this tropers spine in every role he plays.
  • Sabrina's voice in the English dub. Which is just the icing on a Fetish Fuel cake.
  • I would merrily go on hating the English dub of Slayers, if it weren't for Zelgadis' first-season VA. Rrrowf!
  • I present the Count of Monte Cristo for consideration and listening pleasure.
  • This Troper is profoundly moved by Mari's voice, especially in the Digimon Tamers English dub as Renamon.
  • Chiaki Takahashi as Haineko. Yes, 'ma'am!
  • Steve Blum as...well, a lot of roles, but but even his normal voice is seriously shiver-inducing.
  • Sesshomaru's voice actor in the original Japanese InuYasha, Ken Narita. Regal and sexy <3
  • Do I really have to be the first one to say it? Meredith McCoy as Android 18. Positively delicious.
  • Also Bulma. I love it when women's voices crack
  • Itsuki Koizumi's Japanese voice. This troper absolutely melts whenever she hears him speak...
  • Kaworu Nagisa's Japanese voice. *swoon*
  • Minene Uryuu. Full. Stop.
  • And, to a lesser extent (same Troper), Noriko Takaya.
  • Fakir from Princess Tutu. As a youtube video I once saw so cleverly annotated, "keep talking Fakir! Me likee when you speakee! ^_^"
  • Fukuyama Jun when he's singing THIS.
  • Rikiya Koyama as Emiya Kiritsugu. Dayum.
  • The English dub of Ayumu Kasuga, better known as Osaka. While it's not to a sexy extent, it is very adorable to hear a very soft voice with a Southern accent to it.
  • Kenjirou Tsuda, who's currently voicing K's Red King, Mikoto Suoh. The conversation he had with Reishi Munakata (himself voiced by Tomokazu Sugita) in episode 2 was pure auditory heaven for this Troper.
  • I can't be the only one who finds Lelouch's English voice attractive, can I? Please tell me I'm not the only one.
  • Not so much erotica, but Eileen Stevens' Belldandy voice is possibly the sweetest thing I've ever heard.
  • Liam "Bedroom Voice" O'Brien.  His voice makes playing/watching anything in it incredibly awkward, even if he's playing someone who's insane or evil.  This troper would gladly want to be punished by his versio of Lunatic iin Tiger and Bunny.

ComicsEdit

  • Nemi Montoya of the comic Nemi has a crush on Michael Wincott because of his voice.

FilmEdit

Literature and AudiobooksEdit

Live Action TVEdit

  • Spock. In Pon Farr. His voice is sexy enough in any other episode, but hearing it just slightly rough with barely-restrained sexuality is enough to make you orgasm.
    • Argh argh Spock. This troper isn't even usually into deep voices, but...
  • Alan Shore. His voice has been described elsewhere on this wiki as "chocolate for the ears."
  • Claudia Blaaaaaaack!
    • Second the Claudia-love. I especially find myself scolding myself when it's a tense (pain, suspense, grief) moment, because that's when her voice sounds most edible. I have the same unease with Troian Bellisario in one these situations: a) one of Family's especially angsty songs, like 'Skinny Soul', b) Pretty Little Liars - when Spencer Hastings (the Troian Bellisario character) is in danger, such as the Season 1 finale, or c) when a friend is hurt, like when Hanna Marin is hit by a car in the episode before the mid-season break.
  • Lisbon off The Mentalist. Husky. Mmmm.
  • Abby Scuitto from NCIS.
  • Liz Gillies playing Jade in Victorious
  • This troper can't get enough of the last three Doctors. Christopher Eccleston's Oop North accent was great, but then came Tennant, whose real accent is a gorgeous Scottish (this troper has definitely watched Tooth and Claw a few times over just to hear it) and nowadays Matt Smith's Eleven has a pretty RP English one. A trifeca of sex voices!
    • This Troper melted into goop over the series 2 finale, when Rose hears the Doctor calling her in a dream. By calling, I mean a husky sort of whisper. I'll be in my bunk.
    • Hows about Tennant in Blackpool singing over pop songs? The mere memory of his bits in Gabrielle's "Should I Stay?" makes me all squiggly.
    • Sorrry, guys, Paul McGann blows all of them out of the water. His voice is like a silk-clad angel fucking your ear with a bar of Belgian chocolate.
      • That is possibly the best description of his voice I've ever run across.
      • This troper seconds that
    • Definitely. Specifically, Tom Baker and Christopher Eccleston. UNF.
      • Second Eccleston. The accent is just... yeah. Me. Bunk.
      • Yay! Glad I'm not the only one who's hot for Nine's voice. Eccleston himself doesn't do anything for me lookswise, but that VOICE. Hnnnnnggg.
      • Eccleston. Oh dear lord the things his voice does to me.....
    • Gods, Tom Baker... only he could make an offer of confectionery sound so erotic.
    • Catherine Tate in 'Midnight' speaking Italian. Not that David Tennant is a slouch.
    • Jon Pertwee, Anyone?
    • David Tennant and the Scottish accent in Tooth and Claw. I can't watch that full episode in one sitting without listening to him give his explanation to why Rose is so "naked".
  • As a child, I was obsessed with Power Rangers. Eventually I developed a huge crush on Catherine Sutherland, especially her Aussie accent. Thanks to that, I still go weak in the knees when I hear an Aussie accent.
  • Jim Parsons, both as Sheldon and as himself. Especially when he slips into his ovary-busting Texas drawl, as demonstrated in this interview.
  • Richard Coyle in the TV dramatisation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal does it for me. He spends half the film talking in such a deep husky voice that makes me tingly all over...
    • Richard Coyle as Jeff gave me a lifetime appreciation of Welsh accents. Steve's voice was lovely and all, but Jeff's? Rawr.
  • Amber Benson. Such a magical voice. No wonder her most famous role is that of a (sexy) witch. She even gets to to be the voice of the First Slayer in the most surreal episode of them all, so it seems the writers agree about the power of her voice. And there is also the musical episode...
  • Something about Ben's voice just makes this troper melt, though it's not that stereotypically sexy. Must be the Deadpan Snarker quality to it. Of course, Sawyer's husky drawl is also... just... oh my God. Yes, please.
    • I'll see you Sawyer's drawl, and raise you Desmond's Scottish brogue and Sayid's Middle Eastern lilt. Dear God, the men on that show had some sexy voices.
    • This troper taped a two hour documentary just to hear Micheal Emerson narrate it. He definitely qualifies. Especially when he's being creepy.
  • Howlin' Mad Murdock's voice turns this troper to goo with that fairly gentle Southern accent (more gentle than a lot of Southern accents in media) and then how he tends to use that fake Received Pronunciation accent that's all smooth and low... What the hell? It's Murdock!
  • As mentioned below, Lawrence Fox's character DS James Hathaway from Lewis. His phone sex voice from Whom The Gods Would Destroy..."Have we chatted before, because I'm sure I would have remembered such a manly voice".
  • Sherlock. That is all.
    • This troper often has a rather difficult time concentrating on his deductions because of that smooth, dark, unbelievably sexy baritone.
    • AGREED. Apparently, the man also reads audiobooks. Unf. Bunk.
      • Including the audiobook of Casanova. Unf bunk indeed.
    • Thirded! I think this troper's friend put it best: "His voice is eargasmic!"
    • Like a jaguar trapped in a cello, man. This troper loves the contrast between his looks and his voice, too - he sounds like an older, more heavy-set man but looks boyish and willowy.
    • Has anyone listened to the ending to "The Great Game" without video? Oh...um, wow. Particularly when Moriaty walks off. You know where to find me? In my damn bunk.
  • Matthew Gray Gubler. Especially when he's reciting Poe.
  • On a Criminal Minds note, there's just something about Thomas Gibson's Hotch-voice (unwavering intensity and total DNFW stoicism) that makes this troper go all wibbledy. Observe!
  • Well-spoken Shakespeare in general does it for this troper, but especially when it comes from Geoffrey Tennant of Slings And Arrows. He has a roughness to his tone that intensifies into real, raw passion, somehow conveying both the character's emotional turmoil and the actor's profound love of the text. Therefore, Geoffrey Tennant, as Hamlet, speaking some of the most beautiful poetry in the English language in a low, fervent rasp, just . . . holy fuck.
  • Jim Henson. No, I'm serious. Granted, it does take a certain kind of person to appreciate it, and it also depends upon the character he's performing. *cough*Cantus*cough*
  • Firefly. Badger. (Yes, really.) DAT ACCENT.
    • Mark Sheppard - response to Firefly - certainly not only the accent - compare his roles on Firefly, Doctor Who, Dollhouse and Supernatural... puddle of goo after watching all. Interstingly, his sexy quotient does not correspond with the sympathy, love, fear or any other emotion I feel for the character. He's just always amazing.
      • And his Irish accent in Battlestar Galactica? hnnnnnnnng.
  • Spike. That cockney drawl... gawd.
  • James Marsters... Buffy... and Torchwood... considering watching Caprica and Andromeda... well Caprica for Battlestar Galactica stuff too, but Andromeda... not so much for story. Plus Christopher Judge and Michael Shanks... Lexa Doig is a regular, too.
  • Castiel. Oh my God.
    • Misha Collins (the actor who plays Castiel) full stop! Along with his deep, gravely voice in Supernatural, the Serbian accent he puts on for his role as a (sexy) assassin in 24 makes this troper melt.
  • Kerr Avon, another drawler. He starts off sounding rather nasal, but as his character mellows so does his voice — by Season 3 it sounds like he's hit a second puberty. (All that leather probably didn't hurt, either.)
    • Roj Blake, played by Gareth Thomas, has a very deep, rich voice. When matched up against Avon (Paul Darrow) it made a starking (and damn sexy) contrast.
    • Christopher Heyerdahl - Halling, the voice he does for Todd, the Alistair (love the way other people pronounced the name too)... trying to find Sanctuary, haven't watched much beyond promos, don't like the accent John Druitt has... except when he does a threatening whisper.
    • Jason Momoa - considering watching Game of Thrones for him and Sean Bean alone - have never read the books, which is not usually the case.
    • Have only encountered Olivia Williams in Dollhouse, but her voice is amazing, like everything else about her. Also like the Tahmoh Penikett and Harry Lennix similarities, which I find extend to voice. Plus Penikett's dialogue as Ballard is occasionally somewhat Firefly-ish - "I will end you", which is nice.
    • Geri Hall, a Canadian comedian who does This Hour Has 22 Minutes. A very throaty voice. It's especially good when she does sketches where she's supposed to be attracted to somebody - she can make anything an innuendo. Politics, hockey... There's also an awards show where she presents with Yannick Bisson, which is pretty much innuendo. The clip on Youtube ends when they start to announce the nominees - who cares?
    • Nicholas Lea, period, but especially as Alex Krycek. He's got this wonderful deep, soft, gravelly thing going on that goes straight to my ovaries. Squiggly feelings indeed.
    • Sir Patrick Stewart. Commanding when necessary, tender at other times, rich and complex, I'd follow that voice to the ends of the universe. Make it so.
    • Frankie Boyle. A Scottish comedian. I could listen to his voice all day.
    • Russell Howard. A British comedian. Especially when he's acting outraged.
    • Emily Fitch from Skins. I love how her voice is rapsy, yet soft at the same time. The way her voice cracks when she speaks quietly somehow make it sound even better. *sigh* Naomi is one LUCKY girl.
  • Can I just mention The Aquabats! Super Show! here? Because when I watched the episode Mysterious Egg! and heard Jimmy The Robot sing I got a ladyboner the size of New York City.
  • It's too bad the writers of Star Trek: The Next Generation couldn't find more for Troi to do, because Marina Sirtis' accent is just, damn.
    • Of course, that's when Patrick Stewart isn't making you question your sexuality.

MusicEdit

Tom Smith of the Editors

  • Chris Corner. To theeffing max.
  • Kamelot's Roy Khan. Angels exist. And they sing power metal.
    • I Agree
  • This troper has it in for basslines and she FULLY blames "Feel Good Inc." for giving her that particular kink.
    • Additionally, 2D/Damon's vocals make this troper want to melt into a little puddle of goo.
  • This troper does not find Angela McCluskey's voice erotic, as she is female, but she has a very pretty one.
  • This troper has a thing for strong, clear female voices. I developed an audio-crush on Hayley Westenra after only one song. I enjoy Celtic Woman on many, many levels.
    • You and me both, my friend.
    • You can have anyone else you want; Lisa Kelly is mine and has been since the first time I saw her sing "Caledonia."
    • Órla Fallon. Have you heard the woman sing? It's as smooth and smoky as good Irish whiskey. It is entirely possible, in fact, that one could avoid psychological counseling entirely if provided with her discography. Her voice is that soothing. Listen!
  • This troper just realized why Versailles and Klaha-era Malice Mizer make up maybe eighty-five percent of her top-rated songs on iTunes. Being a classically trained musician herself has left her with a massive weakness for male vocalists with a strong, rich, classical sound. The fact that they're all Japanese and gorgeous just sort of helps.
  • This troper has watched the beginning of the second half of episode 1 of Tsubasa Chronicles forty-seven times. Kurogane's laugh is just that sexy. This troper is also insanely attracted to Kubota Keiko and Andrea Bocelli's singing voices.
  • Meg White. Usually the Silent Bob of the pair, but when she opens her mouth, what comes out is pure beauty. Even more so when she sings.
  • Bilinda Butcher, Kevin Shields and the massive wall of guitars from My Bloody Valentine.
  • Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode. Good Lord.
    • Ohhh, yes! Also And One's Steve Naghavi, who is heavily influenced by Gahan (the more the merrier, this troper says).
  • Till Lindemann of Rammstein. I'll be in my bunk.
    • Damn straight. Especially when singing "Ich tu dir Weh" O_o
  • You're gonna hate me for this, but...Miley Cyrus. Wait, maybe that's not as bizarre as it seems...
  • Several male country singers: George Strait, Josh Turner, Brad Paisley....
  • Nick Cave, both when he speaks and sings.
  • Regina Spektor.
    • Seconded. I'm a girl, yet thinks that the French part in "Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)" is hot. Not to say that her other songs aren't as well... my second favorite is "The Call".
  • Trevor Hurst of Econoline Crush. Not as well-known as a lot of others on this list, but DAMN. He could sing nursery rhymes and make them sound sexy.
  • Contraltos in general, but the Ur Examples would have to be Marlene Dietrich and Nina Hagen.
  • Ryann Donnelly. Oh so much.
  • David Bowie's voice is known to fit this trope to a T.
    • Rebochan wants to bottle David Bowie's voice and use it for an aphrodisiac.
    • Bowie's growl in his cover of "I Took a Trip on a Gemini Spacecraft ". The box of clean underwear will be to your right as you leave the page.
    • Holyshit, David Bowie.
  • Enya.
  • Imogen Heap.
  • sigh* Agreed. This female troper has a crush on her voice...
    • Seconded. Actually, this troper just has a flat out girl crush on her.
  • Trent Reznor; good lord, nobody else mentioned him yet?
  • Mother of God, Alexander Wesselsky from Eisbrecher; I do love me a sexy, growly German vocalist.
  • Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Well, not only his voice...
  • Ettore Bastianini. If you don't melt from that baritone, you have no heart, or you are being a stupid soprano.
    • Excuse me? This troper, being herself a (very high) soprano, would like to testify that baritone/bass voices are definitely the sexiest. No contest.
    • Second that. Bastianini had a voice that could make immaculate conception real (and this troper is also a very high soprano).
  • Ferruccio Furlanetto.
  • Placido Domingo. Velvety.
  • Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton when they, you know, speak. Like Meg White, they don't talk that often in interviews, but when they do... umm, this troper'll be in her bunk.
  • Shirley Manson. Plus, she's hotter than the hubs of hell. I'll be queer for you any day, my little ginger puff.
    • I would stop being queer for her.
  • Beth Hart. Like Janis Joplin taken Up To Eleven. She's one of those rare singers who are even better live than recorded.
  • Oren Lavie. Her Morning Elegance just makes me melt.
  • Stacey Kent.
  • Illaria Graziano, that is all.
  • Wyatt Anderson of White Wizzard. Huge and powerful with a youthful energy and tremendous range. Mmmmm.
  • How has Freddie Mercury not been mentioned? Singing voice, obviously, but speaking voice too.
  • Frank. Goddamn. Sinatra. That is all.
    • The Looney Tunes cartoons lampshaded this with that gag of the really skinny crooner (which is actually a young Sinatra) who makes all the girls pass out or melt. Watch "Book Revue" or "Swooner Crooner."
  • Jill Tracy. She's singing about suicides and I'm still turned on.
  • I may not be a Yaoi Fangirl (if anything, I usually prefer het or yuri), but by the gods, I love THE INTERNET.
  • Besides my solemn vow to worship Bilinda Butcher's voice until I'm dead, I second whoever declared he'd be queer for Shirley Manson. And for more female vocal goodness I'd like to give honorary mentions to the surprisingly unmentioned Sharleen Spiteri, Nina Persson, Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson, Kim Deal, Joan Jett, Elizabeth Fraser and Toni Halliday. Maybe I need to cut down on my supply of Alternative Rock...
  • Marina Maximilian Blumin. I don't see how she didn't win the Israeli version of American Idol, but I may be biased by the amazing sexiness of her voice.
  • Steve Bays has this crazy, "headlong yelping", desperate, three-a.m.-half-drunken-phonecall voice that is irresistible. Hold me down, it feels so right has never sounded so wrong. Or is it just me?
  • Brian Eno's singing voice. From his backing vocals in Roxy Music, to the campy Here Come The Warm Jets era where he got to take centre stage with his singing, to Another Green World, but especially on this particular number on the album where he collaborated with John Cale — whose voice this troper also melts at. Just because of that, she enjoys Wrong Way Up on many levels. Woof.
    • And, oh my, Dead Finks Don't Talk. Just, everything vocal about Dead Finks Don't Talk. This troper is not sure why.
  • Michael Crawford. "Music of the Night." If this song were a man, I would fling myself in his arms and wail, "Please take me!"
    • That song is sex. It's turned Up To Eleven when sung by Michael Crawford. "Take me now!" indeed!
    • Hell, Michael Crawford as the Phantom period is pure aural sex (when he's not ripping your heart out, that is). This troper is particularly fond of "Wandering Child" - "You resist, yet your soul obeys." Ooooh boy, does it ever.
    • So have to agree here, though much as I love Music of the Night, the song that gets this troper is "Point of No Return," though perhaps that shouldn't be surprising, considering the fact that the scene is supposed to be a seduction - this troper can safely say, had she been Christine, it would have worked!
    • This musical gave this troper a pipe organ fetish from when she'd listen to it while falling asleep as a child. And Michael Crawford does have a very, very sexy voice.
  • Barry White and Marvin Gaye. Duh.
    • OF COUUUURSSSSE! Don't forget Al Green.
    • I remember my dad telling me he would take it up the ass from Barry White if he were to sing to him.
    • ...At which point I'm guessing he passed out
  • Dr. John the Night Tripper. Growly baritone + slow N'Awlins drawl + primal wailing = HOLY SHIT. If this voice were a person, it would be a religious experience in bed. A bit ironic as well, given the fact that the man himself is profoundly scary-looking. This is the easiest-to-look-at photo of Dr. John I could find, and it's from well over 30 years ago.
  • Ladies and gentlemen: Thurl Ravenscroft. *melts*
  • The unearthly, indescribable magic that is the voice of one Rufus Wainwright.
    • HECK YES.
    • WORD. See (well, hear) in particular "Beautiful Child." Heavens.
      • Thirded for me. I think his official music genre is Baroque Pop.
      • Hnnngh yes.
  • Steven Page, late of the Barenaked Ladies. Like Rufus, you can't really describe his voice (Nerdy? Resonant? Operatic, kind of?), but there are more than a few women that would hop into bed with it if it were a person (this troper included).
  • This troper gets incredibly turned on by Brandon Flower's voice, of all people. He's attractive anyway, but his voice, especially in Mr. Brightside, oh good God.
    • Ssss, yes.
  • The U2-"Passengers" song Your Blue Room has two cases of Audio Erotica for this troper. First of all, there's Bono's voice, singing in a lower register than normal, which, umm, registers a lot of squiggly feelings in this troper, amongst other fans. Combined with that falsetto, and those gorgeous backing vocals, yeah. But then there's the outro, in which Adam Clayton, who sounds a little like Neil Gaiman, speaks a short verse before the song fades out. GUH.
  • Gackt. Just...Gackt. I am a bit surprised he has not been mentioned  yet.
  • Amanda Freakin' Palmer Good God, her voice made psychotic ramblings sexy. There's a whole corner of my bunk reseved for you, Amanda dear~!!
  • Alex Reed of Thoushaltnot. I think the fact that his lyrics are so intelligent and he pronounces everything so clearly tends to add to the (intellectual) sexy, but his lovely baritone is certainly enough all on its own.
  • Anberlin is one of this troper's favorite bands, mostly because of singer Stephen Christian. If his singing voice was a person, I would gladly have sex with it.
  • ZooG. Goddamn. Along with Patrick Wolf, Imogen Heap, Alison Goldfrapp, Matt Bellamy and Chibi.
  • Why do I have a sudden fetish for Eirin's voice after watching this video?
    • Man, I never tought IOSYS's cutesy vocalist can do such a sexy Enka voice...
  • Silje Wergeland from The Gathering. That woman's voice is made of dreams and vanilla ice-cream. I would touch her in all the wrong places..
  • Ronan Harris of VNV Nation. Somewhat embarrassing in that he's around this troper's father's age, but — damn.
  • Daniel Gildenlow of Pain Of Salvation. This troper especially swoons at his vocals in their song 'America'.
  • Dave King's sexy accent. Mmmmmm.
  • It's the only reason this troper listens to Jace Everett.
    • Seconds in a bad way! That style of country is usually not my thing but he is a major expection.
  • Neko Case, full stop. Also Guy Garvey's (of Elbow) voice makes this troper swoon. Carol van Dyk of Bettie Serveert, both singing and speaking. Zach Condon of Beirut has, in this troper's opinion, the most beautiful male (singing) voice she's ever heard. Greg Graffin of Bad Religion. China Forbes of Pink Martini.
  • James Darren
  • Adam Lambert
    • Fuck yes. This troper normally doesn't go for tenors as much as baritones, but he has such a fabulous voice, edged with a roughness that makes it so emotional and expressive. Case in point: Time for Miracles. He pulls out all the stops at around 2:45, and it's glorious.
  • Judy Kuhn
  • Beyonce Knowles
    • Especially the song "Single Ladies". Everything about it. Even putting aside the obvious sexy flaunting of her legs, the song has such an erotic beat to it that this troper gets horny as soon as he hears the "woah oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh" part, but it gets even better. The live performances are why it's the sexiest song alive. This troper loves how arond halfway through the song she often does an improv section where she doesn't swallow her saliva for a good 2 minutes making the "ladies, put your hand in his face" part sound so erotic and sexy with her saliva swishing around like that.
  • Rihanna
  • Christina Aguilera
  • Eddie Vedder. Especially his speaking voice. Just listen to the rare Pearl Jam track "I'm Still Here."
  • Chad Kroeger
  • Delta Goodrem
  • Amy Lee
    • OHGOODGODYUSH. Dear God, everytime I hear her go into a long note or a particularly strong-emotioned section (Think the second half "My Immortal") I get the squiggles. Mmmm, that voice.
    • Definitely. And she's that good live, too.
  • Billie Joe Armstrong
    • At :09 of this song Billie Joe makes a sound that made this troper pregnant.
  • Darren Hayes (from Savage Garden)
  • Michael Hutchence (from INXS)
  • Justin Timberlake: Sexy Back causes Eargasm's.
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Adam LeVine
  • Nicole Scherzinger
  • Hayley Williams
  • Pink
  • Ricky Martin
  • Shakira
  • Bryan Adams
  • Taylor Swift
  • Wendy Matthews
  • Jordin Sparks
  • Leona Lewis
  • Sandi Thom
  • Alanis Morissette
  • KOKIA. God, what a voice! This troper is actually a bit afraid of the idea of seeing her perform in concert because her voice might make my mind explode from how powerful it is. Her voice on a recording has enough power as it is.
  • Don't laugh, but whoever sings this has an unbelievably sexy voice.
    • I'm not laughing. That's Donny Osmond, by the way. Totally off-topic, but does anyone else want to hear Neil Patrick Harris sing this now?
  • FreddeGredde's singing voice. Good god... *swoon*
  • Benjamin Burnley, lead singer of Breaking Benjamin. And I'm a straight guy!
  • Lady Gaga, anyone? This troper likes to tell herself she has a spotless mind and "Teeth", of all songs, still makes her feel a tad interesting.
    • Or the opening to the "Born This Way" video"Just put your paws up. 'Cause you were born this way, baby." Oh, sweet Jesus...
  • Maynard James Keenan of Tool and A Perfect Circle fame. I could listen to him sing all day.
  • Jonathan Coulton. While he's great when he sings songs about monsters or robots he shines the most on When You Go, an a cappella ballad about failed relationships.
  • Dear Tropers, I present for your consideration the voice of Alasdair MacLean, lead singer of The Clientele. Have a listen. Gentle, breathy, and utterly romantic. Most...okay, every song he's sung feels, to me, like the audio equivalent of a French kiss.
  • Paul. Freaking. Simon. That is all.
  • Peter Cetera, especially during his rock years in Chicago. I once considered naming my son for him. Hoping, of course, that the father would be THAT VOICE. (Don't ask how I planned on getting pregnant by a voice.) Also, when the lead singer hits the high note in Boston's "More Than a Feeling," I have to make everyone else around me shut up so I can listen to it and sigh.
  • This Troper once read a review that described Peter Gabriel's voice as being "like cream poured over gravel". Yes.
  • Ryann Donnelly, lead singer of Schoolyard Heroes. Dear God, that woman has an amazing voice.
  • Shikao Suga. I would listen to him reading out of a Japanese dictionary. His self-cover of Beyond The Night Sky is beautiful.
  • While Disney does a lot to sell Miley and Demi, to this troper it is all about the voices of Selena Gomez and Emily Osment. They have divine singing voices. On the male side of voices, Lucas Grabeel's voice is a wondrous thing.
  • Britney Spears: Breathe On Me <3
  • This toper's butter begins to melt when he hears Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters fame sing in his non-falsetto voice ecspecially on 'Skin Tight' and 'Night Life'.
  • Dusty Springfield. Pleasing to the ears.
  • I didn't see Elvis Presley and I'm very surprised.
  • The Nico singer Nodoame. He has an impressive vocal range, can pull off musical shouting amazingly well, and... Just... Listen for yourself. This troper would gladly have sex with his voice.
  • David. Byrne. Unhinged in all the right ways for this troper.
  • Rob Swire of Pendulum, or more importantly, Pendulum as is, like so [2]Mmm..
  • Shounen-T. To start with, I give you his take on SPICE!.
    • Razzy, Several Nico singers, Kaito, Gakupo, Len, Kiyoteru (as well as Kaito and Gakupo's voice donors)
  • Nico singer, ぱにょ(Panyo)’s singing and speaking voice can turn this troper on. Here's his version of SPICE! (speaking part at around 2:22).
  • Bentley Jones is this troper's favourite pop singer for many reasons, but a lot comes from his angelic voice. It doesn't help that he moans at the ends of some of his notes, and that falsetto... This troper will be in her bunk.
  • Sam Sparro sounds like a human saxophone. Guh!
  • Timo Kotipelto from Stratovarius. This male troper doesn't really find Timo's voice "erotic", but it's pleasing for some reason!
  • This troper is shocked that no one has yet mentioned hyde, from the J-rock band L'Arc~en~Ciel. Just listen to the man's [3] and try not to die.
  • Tay Zonday.
  • Tom Lehrer. He did write The Masochism Tango after all...
  • Basshunter. His voice is all warm and buttery and SQUEE!
  • Danny O'Donoghue-The Script lead singer. It helps he's real hot too!
  • Simone Simons, the only 100% classically trained singer I adore.
  • Anna Nederdal of swedish group Zzaj has a voice known to cause men to lose focus. An example is here, but please do ignore her outer-space haircut...
  • God, the things Doctor Steel's voice does to this troper! Not even just his singing voice — just listen to him speak. That eloquent baritone, and the fact that it is coming from a very attractive (not to mention brilliant) artist...I'll be in my bunk.
  • If you think Christopher Lee has a sexy speaking voice, track down some of the songs he performed with Rhapsody of Fire or, better yet, his metal album, "Charlemagne." Ohgodyes.
  • Michael Buble, my weakness for crooners is because of his singing voice.
  • Josh Groban, never was into classical vocal till I heard him sing (ok it does not hurt he is also quite nice to look at as well).
  • For Desert Dragon, it's Caleb Followill, the frontman for Kings Of Leon. I generally don't swoon over musicians—even ones I like that are attractive—but his baritone voice is so fucking hot, I turn into a swooning fangirl as soon as one of their songs comes on. And then there's the video for "Sex on Fire" that's basically Three Minutes Of Writhing. Yes, please...
  • Voltaire. Just... Voltaire.
  • Radiohead's music may be filled with tear jerkers and wander into occasional Nightmare Fuel, but as someone mentioned below, Thom Yorke's voice just...oh, wow. And combined with the instrumentals of many of the songs, the overall effect just...gets to me. In the best way possible.
    • It's a total cliche, but this troper will never fail to get chills at "she's running out again, she's running, she run, run, run, run, ruuuunnn..."
    • The parts in "Nude" where Thom Yorke's voice peaks, goes into a semi-improvised vocalization, and ends with something that sounds like Ariel's aria from The Little Mermaid..."unbelievable" doesn't even come close to describing the sheer beauty of the vocals on that track.
  • Chris Colfer's voice is so deliciously angelic that this troper either dissolves into a fit of the squigglies or weeps upon hearing it. It is a very feminine voice, though, so I guess it's kind of... recursive Fan Yay. Still... UNF.
  • This troper maintains that Kevin McHale (Artie) is the best male singer of the "Glee" crew—check out "Stronger," particularly that goosebumps-inducing note he belts at the end. Holy shit.
  • Never was a big Strokes fan. Watched "Boombox" by Lonely Island which has Julian Casablancas (who also has thee most fucking awesome last name ever) doing vocals on it. I fucking love that man now.
  • As above, Julian Casablancas, specially on songs like this one. On the same line, there's also Carl Barat, husky voice with The Libertines as well as Dirty Pretty Things. You can see the pattern on this troper's preferences *sighs*
  • Excuse me? Where the hell is HEART? Come on people, Oooooh, Barracuda.
  • Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix do this for this troper.
  • Jenny Lewis.
    • I'd like to add Blake Sennett's as well. Especially in "A Town Called Luckey", when he sings background vocals in that soft, whispery voice... they're very hard to notice if you're not wearing headphones, but those parts always gives her shivers every time.
  • Um...Tom Jones, anyone? Even when he's talking about his fondness for gospel!
  • Emily Gray from Meanwhile, Back in Communist Russia.... HOTTEST HUSKIEST southern English accent EVER, speaking calmly (almost whispering, in a 10-cigarettes-a-day way) over the top of beautiful post-rock. Mostly about sex and failed relationships, though many of the texts have generous helpings of fetish fuel mixed in.
  • Along with his soulful guitar work, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd has an astonishingly beautiful singing voice. Listen for yourself . On top of that, his speaking voice deep and smooth like audio chocolate.
  • British New Wave band Ultravox has not one, but TWO members that can be firmly placed in this category. Lead singer and guitarist Midge Ure is not just a talented singer (case in point ) but he is also Scottish. Very Scottish . And then there's drummer Warren Cann, who possesses a speaking voice that sounds like a Canadian mix of Stephen Fry and Paul McGann...
  • Bob Dylan's voice might nost be considered attractive by a lot of folks, but his voice on the Nashville Skyline record was smooth as butter. Also, Patti Smith's vocals on "Gloria"...or, y'know, just Patti Smith.
  • Lou Rhodes may not have the most alluring of names, but her super sultry voice melts the knickers right off this troper. Listen toLullaby if you need convincing.
  • GOOD SWEET LORD, CHARLIE SIMPSON. Good. Sweet. Lord.
  • Chrissey Hynde
  • How wrong is it that some of this troper's favorite audio erotica is pipe organ music? It's from listening to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack as a child.
  • The Lonely Island. All three of them have pretty compelling voices, but Jorma takes the cake. Especially in Jack Sparrow.
  • It's Andy that does it for me in The Lonely Island. I know Jizz in My Pants is supposed to make you laugh, and it does, but goddamn his voice makes my panties a little. *Ahem*
  • James Hetfield. Good god the growl.
  • Jim Morrison. The Doors. Holy fucking shit. I need a shower after hearing him sing. And This? Fuck me.
  • If you don't like Johnny Cash there's something wrong with you.
  • As mentioned on another page , pretty much anything by Electric Six could qualify as fetish fuel. Dick Valentine's voice has a lot to do with that.
  • How did we get this far without mentioning the Golden God himself, Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant? His voice is legendary for making panties drop with a mere croon or a full-fledged yell. Here, have a taste. Isn't it just scrumptious?
  • What, no love for the queen of sexy voices, Shirley Manson? Blasphemy, says I! This song did funny things to this troper's 15-year old self. Also, THAT ACCENT. Scottish accents are sexy anyway, but hers is just so... such a gutter accent. I'll be in my bunk.
  • Grey DeLisle also has an amazing singing voice , just in case her wide voice acting range wasn't enough for you.
  • I'm not the only one who's totally in love with Björk's singing voice, am I? That accent...
  • How can there not be about Norah Jones yet?! Good God! That woman is amazing!
  • Leila Moss of The Duke Spirit, anyone?
  • Don't know if this belongs under music or movies but Tom Felton has an amazing singing voice ^.^ he has a youtube channel FeltBeats and he keeps his english accent while he sings and plays guitar... something about the accent and pronounciation gets this trooper going ;)
  • Suicide Commando. That is all.
  • Marilyn Manson. The comment section speaks for itself here .
  • Maki Nomiya of the Pizzicato Five. Such a voice, ranging from cute 1, to pretty? 2, to just plain sexy? 3(right when she says "K-I-S-S", you'll know what I'm talking about )
  • Arika Takarano from ALI PROJECT. This or this, for example. Specifically her manner to sing high-pitched notes. 
  • Tom Waits. God. Fucking. Damn. He has the gravliest, sexiext voice on the planet. I get more than a little hot under the collar listening to his music, "Wrong Side of the Road" being a prime example of how sexual his voice is.
  • Siouxsie Sioux, anyone? Don't even get me started on what happens at 3:28 "Slowdive" 1
  • Simple Minds' Jim Kerr... even a straight man such as this troper finds his voice incredibly attractive. From the young energetic, and sometime nervous-sounding vocals on the Minds' 70s and early 80s albums, and his smooth crooning on "Don't You (Forget About Me)." Then on to the mature and powerful vocals of their next four albums, along with some of that lovely, lovely crooniness. Starting on Neaplolis, his voice became smooth and creamy. But here's the best part: to this day, escpecially with their latest singles, he has been able to capture all his previous vocal styles perfectly.
  • Morrissey. After all these years. From the young and energetic voice on The Smith's "This Charming Man," to the middle-aged, energetic voice on "Something Is Squeezing My Skull," he can still make women everywhere  drop their panties, and men drop their boxers.
  • Emilie Autumn and Launa Del Ray. I must admit, I have a lady crush on both of their singing voices.
  • Ok but Lux Interior from The Cramps. His singing in I Can't Hardly Stand It is admittedly kind of silly sounding at some parts but the way he gasps and exclaims "oh, baby!" before saying 'all tore up' gets this troper rather flustered.

Radio DramaEdit

  • While the Eighth Doctor's soft, sexy voice (with an interesting, lilting accent that's part Scouse and part Received Pronunciation) is also present in the Doctor Who Made For TV Movie, it's used as a major selling point among fans proselytizing for the Big Finish audios. Even if you don't enjoy a particular installment of the audio dramas, it's inevitably redeemed by McGann's pretty, pretty voice. I know a blind woman who has a crush on him.
  • Garrison. Freakin'. Keillor.
    • It was quite a shock for This Troper the first time she saw what he looked like after listening to that pleasant voice for years. He has, by his own admission, a face for radio.
  • Paul Ritter as Carcer in the Radio Play of Night Watch. Especially when he gets all low and whispery and threatening at the end of the Morphic Street scene. I'll be in my bunk.
    • The sounds of Carcer and Vimes fighting on the roof ... oh gods, that DID THINGS to me ... I mean, guys fighting will usually excite me but the grunting and the yelling and the struggling ... oh dear.
  • Cheyenne Wright as Othar Tryggvassen, GENTLEMAN ADVENTURER! in the Girl Genius Radio Dramas. I could listen to him reading the phonebook and I'd still get turned on as hell.

Real LifeEdit

  • Christopher Lee. He's been mentioned twenty times by now. At least.
  • Ivan. Doroshuck. His super sexy baritone singing voice is just one of the reasons he's my guy crush.
  • Sir. Ian. McKellen. Full stop. Yes, this troper KNOWS he's much, MUCH older than she is, not to mention...she's not his type AT ALL. Yeah. Don't care. He's on my List because of his damn VOICE! Fo' realz, yo'.
  • Sean Connery
  • Susan Sarandon is like the female equivalent of Sean Connery; the older she gets, the sexier her voice.
  • Peter Mayhew. Yeah, he's in his 70s, and he's male, but he's got a really cool-sounding voice.
  • Alicia Witt. Oh, dear God, Alicia Witt.
  • Thom Yorke, just... my God...
  • Zooey fucking Deschanel.
  • Jack Davenport , oh God that deep, slightly husky voice.
  • Scarlett Johansson. This, just... this. Her voice is almost exotic and naturally appealing. It's just as sexy as the rest of her.
  • Ariana Grande especially in contrast to her character Cat's high pitched voice.
  • Jamie Lee Curtis
  • Lorraine Bracco
  • This editor had a girlfriend at one point who had a thing for Jack Black and Seth Rogen. Part of both was their voices.
    • This editor has heard women say the same thing about Seth Mac Farlane(as himself, that is) and Seth Green.
      • What is it about guys named Seth, that they all seem to have magic voices?
  • For some strange reason, the combination of husky and nasal is extremely effective, i.e. Jennifer Tilly, Joey Lauren Adams...
    • I second Tilly.
  • Jeremy Irons
    • DEAR. GOD. YES.
    • You now love William Wordsworth's poetry .
    • His wife, Sinead Cusick, also has a hot voice. Just watch V For Vendetta. One imagines every word they exchange between eachother works as foreplay.
  • Lucius. Malfoy. Yeeahhh...
  • Patrick Stewart
  • Harrison Ford
  • John Rhys Davies
  • Peter Cullen, AKA, Optimus Prime
  • Michael Wincott. This Troper maintains that the man must gargle with sex.
  • Liam Neeson. The smoothness and resonance of it, with that brogue...! This (male) Troper would go gay in an instant for that voice.
    • Definitely agree with this SO MUCH. Just listen to him in Batman Begins.
      • He narrated a documentary about Mount Everest that my class was forced to watch. He was the only thing that kept me awake through the whole thing.
      • Liam. Neeson. Aslan. (Troper's big cat fetish...Heh...) Squigglies. And Kinse... Ohhhhhhgaahhh, KINSEY!
  • Malcolm McDowell. Guy is 66, and has not aged well (cocaine is a hell of a drug), but he opens his mouth, and there isn't a dry pair of panties in the place.
  • This editor has always found Janeane Garofalo's voice rather hot.
  • Keith David, best known as the voice actor for Goliath and Dr. Facilier (also providing his singing voice). Even The Nostalgia Critic notes in his review of Gargoyles that the actor's wife must play lots of 70's music in his presence.
    • I'm straight, dammit!, but anyone casting God in the future is hereby commanded to retain Keith David for his voice.
      • It's not just me, then? I can't help it, that voice presses buttons I didn't know I had.
    • And what about his roles as Cpt. Anderson and Sgt. Foley? That voice inspires me to pick up a rifle and die trying like no other.
  • I cannot believe Alan Rickman hasn't been mentioned yet.
    • I know, right? In my opinion, he's the king of this trope. My friend and I have a saying, whenever we watch a movie with him in it, when he first appears on-screen, we say, "Alan Rickman has arrived! But more importantly, Alan Rickman's voice has arrived!"
  • Paul McGann. If his Eighth Doctor audios don't have you melting all over the place, well...
    • This editor wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the BBC has been managing to keep a lot of female viewers watching their wildlife documentaries simply by having Paul McGann as the narrator.
  • Emma Thompson. She could read the phone book, and this editor would have to cross his legs...
  • Mimi Rogers
  • Morgan Freeman
  • James Earl Jones
  • Heather Graham. Even her goofy-ass laugh is fucking sexy.
  • Salma Hayek. A big part of it is that accent, but the voice is equally important.
  • Mariella Frostrup
  • KEVIN CONROY!!!
    • YES. SO MUCH.
    • Fun story about Conroy: after 9/11, he was helping in an aid kitchen when he was recognized and asked to do the line. "I am vengeance. I am the night. I am BATMAN!" The crowd cheered. The women probably needed cold showers.
  • Jim Cummings
  • Adrian Pasdar in Profit. Lampshaded in the DVD commentary for the first episode. Also, to a lesser extent, in Heroes.
  • Trent Reznor; good lord, nobody else mentioned him yet?
  • George Takei. Oh, my.
  • Happy birthday Mr. President...
  • David Hayter.
    • HAWT
    • Hell, This Troper has heard a few of his interviews, where he smoothly switches between his natural speech pattern and "Snake voice". It was like having multiple aural orgasms.
  • Lauren Bacall, and her husband Humphrey Bogart, for whom Bogart-Bacall syndrome is named.
  • Bruce Greenwood. *shakes*
  • Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Well, not only his voice...
  • Ettore Bastianini. If you don't melt from that baritone, you have no heart, or you are being a stupid soprano.
  • Ferruccio Furlanetto.
  • Placido Domingo. Velvety.
  • Tim Curry, because Tim Curry.
  • Craig Ferguson, in his natural voice. Gawd.
  • Lori Petty. Her voice is somehow harsh & irritating, yet soft & erotic all at once. It's like she's having rough sex with your ears.
  • Neil Gaiman
  • Clive Owen. If he tells you to do something, you will do it.
    • Even if it involves taking off your pants. Especially if it involves taking off your pants.
  • Bonnie Wright, aka Ginny Weasley, will probably grow into this. Even in the films, where she affects a somewhat lighter intonation, her voice is still noticeably deeper than her peers'. It's only highlighted in the interviews where she teams up with Evanna Lynch.
  • Gregory Peck
  • Alec Baldwin
  • Avery Brooks
  • Basil Rathbone. Pull out some of the old WWII-era Sherlock Holmes films (or radio plays) and enjoy.
  • Cam "Liquid Kratos" Clarke. Also did Adult Simba's singing voice in the second Lion King movie.
  • Cree Summer. *shudders in the good way* Especially as Tatjana.
  • Kathleen Turner in general. Voice of Jessica Rabbit.
  • Stuart Townsend. Go ahead and click this, skip to 01:29-02:10 and have a good listen. It's not just the slight French accent, he sounds equally delicious with his native Irish one.
  • Ex-Scientologist Jason Beghe. For the most part he sounds like Salem the cat, but at one point in that interview I could imagine everyone thinking "Could you say 'bad' again? Please?".
  • You're all gonna hate me for this, but seriously? Johnny Depp. Regardless of the role.
    • I don't hate you~ I love Johnny Depp! And not just his voice...
  • Hugo Weaving.
  • Oliver Reed. Don't believe me? I want you to view any one of his film clips on YouTube and listen to the sound of his voice. I dare you to tell me you don't feel misty...down there.
  • David Tennant. Listening to him narrate Eddie Izzard's marathons around Britain really distracted this troper from what was happening.
  • There's something special about Josh Holloway's accent that sends this troper into a tizzy. Oh, Sawyer...
    • On the subject of Lost, Michael Emerson. And he has done some audiobook readings. Oooooooh.....
  • Mike Rowe.
  • Vincent D'Onofrio.
  • Candice Fucking Bergen.
  • Amber Benson
  • Asia Argento
  • Eliza Dushku
  • Kristin Kreuk
  • Keifer Sutherland
    • And of course his father, Donald Sutherland. Woof.
  • Minnie Driver
    • Did I put this in already? If not, seconded.
  • Rebecca Romjin
  • Carol Vorderman. That's all.
  • I'm astounded that nobody has mentioned Cate Blanchett, not just her normal voice, but also her best known roles as well.
    • This straight female troper even finds herself all swoony over Cate Blanchett's voice.
  • "This troper" is honestly attracted to Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders for this reason amongst others.
  • Rachel Weisz. Milk and honey to the ears.
  • Laura Vandervoort. Smooth and husky at the same time...mmm.
  • Helena Bonham Carter
  • Liv Tyler
  • Kurt Russell. He did inspire David Hayter, after all...
  • Holly Hunter
  • Nicole Sullivan
  • Kevin Conroy, oh GOD, KEVIN CONROY!
    • Oh, Heavens, YES!! Especially when he sings... *Faints* This troper definitely wishes he would record a freakin' CD NOW!
  • Joanna Lumley
  • Elizabeth Pena
  • William Fichtner. Not too hard on the eyes, either, but that voice? Mmmm.
  • No love for Stephen Fry? I would go gay for his voice...
    • You're not the only one. His voice is universally desirable.
    • I didn't spend $70 on an alarm clock just so I could be awoken by his voice every morning for nothing...
      • Similarly, one of the only things that can keep me from hitting the "snooze" button multiple times on my CD/radio alarm clock is Fry reading Harry Potter audio books. (The other is David Tennant reading Dr Who audio books.)
  • Richard Gere. The voice of Laguna in this troper's mind.
  • Since Alan Shore is on the other page for this trope, not mentioning James Spader is a terrible tragedy. His character in sex, lies, and videotape is probably the best example, considering the entire movie is dialogue. About sex.
  • Natalie Portman. Hot damn. And I am straight.
  • JD Samson. Her speaking voice is just... mm.
  • Say what you will about his concepts of "comedy," Seth Mac Farlane belongs here, full stop. If I could somehow personify and have sex with that man's voice, I would.
    • I must second this whole comment.
  • Nick Clegg. Umm... yeah.
  • Surprised I'm the first for them, but two of the "Unholy Trinity Of Horror", Christopher Lee and Vincent Price. Also, randomly, Anthony Stewart Head. Funny thing is, this troper is...bi, but doesn't really go for older men in real life.
  • How has no one included Randal Graves himself, Jeff Anderson? Many female Askewniverse fans find his over-the-top, uber-sarcastic Jersey drawl to be hotter than all holy hell. Judge for yourself.
  • Patrick Wilson.
  • Jeffrey Combs. Especially as the Question or Dr. Herbert West.
  • Christopher Eccleston. How could we forget that awesome Northern accent?
  • Olivia Williams. She just sounds so proper and British all the time...
  • Lance Henriksen
  • Christian Bale. Just listen to the voice acting he did for Howls Moving Castle.
  • Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh fame. "Erotica" nothing, his voice is pure audio sex.
  • This troper can't believe no one's mentioned Philip Glenister yet. Both his natural accent and his Manc accent will make this troper swoon.
  • Lawrence Fox. The reason This Troper watched History Cold Case (besides being a history nut) was for his husky narration. She also loves his character on Lewis
  • Say what you will about your preferred Bond, but Daniel Craig's luxuriously rich, deep voice with that accent... Guh. This interview on The Daily Show is my particular favorite example, because he's so affable and charming and sweet, with that voice. 'scuse me, bunk time.
  • Andrew Robinson
  • Rachel Luttrell singing this. Just guh.
  • Jackson Rathbone. Especially with the Southern accent in Eclipse.
    • Seconded. This troper is still not sure why it randomly appeared in the third movie, but it made all Jasper's screentime that much better.
  • I can hardly believe that there has yet to be a mention of Karl Urban. This troper melts for both his real voice and the Southern accent in Star Trek XI. And this troper usually despises Kiwi accents...
    • On that note, DeForest Kelley as well.
  • Orlando Bloom
  • Jesse Spencer
  • Alexander Siddig
  • Liam Neeson.
  • Terry Farrell
  • Connor Trineer
  • Edward Norton for this troper
  • Dominic Keating
  • Joe Flannigan
  • Jason Mamoa
  • Zachary Quinto
    • His audiobook reading of the Star Trek novelization is pretty spellbinding.
  • Shohreh Aghdashloo. Listening to her voice is like drinking an exceptionally fine whiskey.
  • Adam Baldwin. Gruff, rough, and forever linked in my mind with a badass smirk and a big gun.
  • OK seriously, is this troper the only person who's noticed that Willem Dafoe's voice is dead sexy?
  • Kailee O'Sullivan
  • Kathryn Prescott - JFC, so adorably husky.
  • Sharlto Copley. It's not smoky or deep and mellifluous, but This Troper could listen to him read a phonebook.
    • It's that accent, for me.
  • Kirk Acevedo's voice does things to this troper.
  • Whitney Thompson
  • Sam Elliott. In a radio interview, a woman once said he should have his own radio show where he does nothing but talk for one full hour every night. She's right!
  • Jon Hamm. The man is ridiculously good looking, for sure. But listen to his voice! There's a reason people hang on Don Draper's every word.
  • Richard Burton, especially in Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds. "No one would have believed..."
  • James Arnold Taylor - specifically his normal OOC voice and his voices for Ratchet and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now leave me alone.
  • Emma Stone.
  • Timothy Dalton
  • Gerard Butler
  • Benedict Cumberbatch. Especially as Sherlock. Dear lord.
  • Sean Bean. Seriously. THAT VOICE.
    • The tropateer is proud to say his voice turned into "Sharpe's" voice when he turned 20.
  • Pierce Brosnan
    • YES
      • DOUBLE yes!
  • I have a feeling I'm completely bat shit insane for this, but Mike Fielding from The Mighty Boosh. I know for most fans its Julian's, and I like his, but for some reason its Mike's that I'm head over heels in love with.
  • Canadian Actor/Author/Director/et c. Nigel Bennett can say anything for about 2 seconds, and I'm, um, somewhere else mentally.
  • John DeLancie.
  • John Astin
    • Um, yes. Especially knowing he once played Gomez Addams in the TV series? Mm-hmm, yes please...
  • And while we're on the subject of the Addams Family, Anjelica Huston. Yeah.
  • Jackie Earle Haley, once he is in Guttural Growler mode.
  • Judi Dench. The reason James Bond listens to orders, is because ANYONE would do WHATEVER they were told by that voice. Admit it.
    • <*raises hand*> I'll cop to it!
  • Brian Stokes Mitchell.
  • The Sing-Off is generally a show made of Audio Erotica, but for this troper, the soloist in the Whiffenpoof's rendition of "Grace Kelly" takes the cake. Normally high tenors are not that sexy to me, but this guy . . . rawr. Maybe it's the attitude.
    • While we're on the subject, On the Rocks and last season's Beelzebubs as well (why yes, this troper has a thing for male a cappella groups, how did you guess?). Of course, the Whiffenpoofs turn it Up To Eleven by throwing white tie and tails into the mix...
      • Who doesn't have a thing for male a capella groups?
  • Stephen Fry. I could just listen to him talking ALL DAY LONG.
  • Gareth David-Lloyd: both as Ianto Jones and his real voice.
  • Ryan Buell from Paranormal State, he just has something voice wise I can't put a finger on.
  • Say what you want about Lindsay Lohan(or, better yet, don't, we could be here all day), but she has a very nice voice.
    • Same goes for her sister, Ali. Apparently, sounding like a chain smoker runs in the family.
  • This troper would like to add Maggie Gyllenhaal. Of course, it might just be because he finds every goddamn thing about her so fucking sexy.
  • Hugh Jackman, especially with his native accent
  • Marion Cotillard
  • Richard Armitage! Just try to keep yourself sane when you hear him reading some poetry.
    • Singing as Thorin in The Hobbit trailer... hnngg.
  • Helen Mirren. God, her voice is sexy.
  • Colin Firth.
  • Rod Serling. One of the reasons why The Twilight Zone is so awesome.
  • This Troper nominates Steve Valentine, because his voice is pure audio chocolate.
  • You whippersnappers are too young to know him, it seems, but George Sanders. Have mercy. He was in All About Eve and Rebecca, among many other things, and no one has ever said "old boy" quite so well. (He was also Shere Khan the tiger in The Jungle Book. Inappropriate childhood crush time!)
    • I first saw him in The Ghost And Mrs Muir. Horrible character, got in the way of the romantic leads. Hated him, loved his voice.
  • Will Arnett. How has he not been mentioned yet? That permanent growl just does things to this troper.
  • Wade Barrett. Good lord.
  • This troper is probably alone in this but is unashamedly adding Paul Reubens , because his very soft normal speaking voice (as opposed to Pee-wee's, which just makes her Squee ) does naughty, naughty things to her. Why else would she keep the commentary on Pee-wee's Big Adventure running while she's, er, trying to sleep? Oh, and his singing voice .
    • In hindsight, the above troper realises how it looks to say she's probably alone in this and then link to a video actually titled "Sexy Paul Reubens". She meant alone as a troper though.
  • How has nobody mentioned Tom Hiddleston yet? I'm addicted to his voice!
  • Say what you want about his films, but you can't deny that Vin Diesel has one sexy voice. Listen to him! Especially when he does Riddick.
  • Jessica Biel. Heavens above.
  • This troper, following the Emmys a few years back when Jennifer Love Hewitt's co-presenter managed to say "The Colbert Report" and make it sound sexy, has no qualms about including her. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Hayden Panettiere.
  • This troper has to admit, despite being for the most part straight, he would in a heartbeat go gay for the likes of Christopher Lee and Stephen Fry, as their voices alone bring him to a state of high arousal.
  • Julie Benz
  • Melanie Lynskey's soft, lyrical voice, combined with her Kiwi accent...Good lord.
  • Lacey Chabert's distinctive high, soft voice has led her to a sizable number of voice acting roles...and a great deal of attraction for this troper.
  • Robert Mitchum. Oh yes. You should hear him sing, too.
  • I don't know what it is about Eartha Kitt's voice that makes it so compelling, but good God, I could listen to her talk all day.
  • The surprisingly underrated voice of Tom Baker , the Fourth Doctor whose voice rivals Alan Rickman's. It's deep and theatrical and I would take ALL THE JELLY BABIES HE OFFERED.
  • Jamie Bell.
  • Seth MacFarland. He doesn't even look like he would have a voice that deep in the first place! Brian may be a douche, but he has one alluring voice.
  • Ashleigh Ball. And that goes without mentioning her SINGING voice...
  • I have to say Andrew Scott's lovely and soft litlting Irish accent especially as Jones in My Life In Film...and yes, even as psychopathic Moriarty.
  • Tom Hiddleston
  • Kathryn Prescott. I love that raspy, cracky voice. OH, YES.
  • This troper was mildy disappointed to not see Dean Martin on this list. Yes, an old school choice but just listen to one of his most famous songs Sway. Damn.
  • No one has mentioned Robert Downey, Jr. yet? This troper is a huge fan of his movies, and not one instance of his deliciously husky, masculine voice ceased to make her melt. Bonus points for Downey's turn in the film adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, where he pulled off a near-perfect British accent. Yum.
  • Michael Gladis. Good, LORD, Michael Gladis!
  • Tom. Fucking. Hardy.
    • You mean Darth Connery?
  • Mary Elizabeth Winstead, especially in Scott Pilgrim, with her deadpan-ness.
  • Robert Carlyle.
    • Mmmm yes, that Glaswegian accent does things to me.
  • Ben Bowlin, from the Stuff They Don't Want You To Know and Car Stuff podcasts (as well as guest appearances on other How Stuff Works podcasts ). My GOD, that voice is sexy as hell - especially when he does his mysterious/creepy voiceover for the STDWYTK video podcast. Delicious.
  • How is Julian Richings not on this list? The narriation at the beginning and end of this trailer? Good Lord! To say nothing of Supernatural's Death.
  • Karen Gillan.

TheaterEdit

  • Ask any female Phantom Of The Opera fan about her favorite actor in the title role. This trope will come up.
  • This Troper would have to agree with that - though her personal favorite is still an old concert choir buddy.
  • The moment This Troper turned into an obsessive Placido Domingo fan was this video: His anguished "Carmen!", with the rolled r's and that strong tenor...! I've never been a fan of tenors before, but I could make a special exception.
  • This straight male troper loves to go see Patrick Stewart perform at the theater for no other reason than his voice. I'd so get that man to do my answering machine message if possible.
  • Philip Quast. Dear god , Philip Quast . This troper cannot even begin to express her love for his voice, particularly as Javert in the 10th anniversary production of Les Miserables.

Troper TalesEdit

  • This troper finds one girl in his school massively attractive for no reason other than the fact that she is incredibly well-spoken. Although I'm fifteen and she's eleven...
  • This Troper gets turned on by certain sounds (No, not THAT way!), possible because of being an mild synaethesia 'sufferer' (I don't know the appropriate term for this). Especially hollow noises.
    • The term you are looking for is "synaesthete".
  • Possible inversion - In that This Troper has apparently a sexy, deep, hard-edged baritone when speaking normally. Unfortunately, when I switch to my "girlfriend voice" - the voice I use subconsciously when speaking to a ladyfriend - it gets an octave higher and significantly less manly. When I say subconsciously, I mean it - I honestly have to keep an ear out for it. -_-"
  • This Troper knows a guy at her performing arts training center whose singing voice is so incredible, it will melt one's virginity away upon hearing it and give any listener multiple orgasms. Needless to say, when said training center did Phantom, you can guess who got the part.
    • This same troper has another friend who can do this with his everyday speaking voice. It's fantastic.
    • This troper has been told that he has that effect on people. Considering he sounds like a baritone when speaking and a bass when singing, he was quite surprised.
  • Is it bad to put myself down? One time I got a ridiculously nasty cold that basically tore up my throat for awhile. But I got to enjoy a husky, much deeper voice for the interval. ...I kind of want it back.
  • This Troper actually gets this effect from violins. I don't know why, or if it counts, but...yeah, violins XD
    • It's not odd, This Troper gets it from flutes. The alto flute especially.
    • I get it from cellos. God, just listening to Apocalyptica's "Path"....
    • Not so much with violins or cellos alone with this Troper, but get a group of them together... mmm. Any time I hear a really beautiful strain of ensemble strings, I just close my eyes and let the chills race up my arms and back.
      • I have my own weird shit, and I mean no harm. But you four just made my day, and hurt my ribs. XD
    • Saxophones. Just...saxophones.
      • I hear you, man. I remember one time when a teacher started playing smooth jazz on a field trip, and one of the students yelled, "Turn that baby-making music off!" Needless to say, it was pretty hilarious.
      • More like a sexophone!
    • For this troper, oboes have the same effect.
    • This troper gets turned on when woodwind players inhale audibly.
      • Perhaps I should breathe more loudly, then...
      • For this troper it's the combination of any guy that can sing (a certain way of course, but she can't put her finger on it) and plays acoustic guitar.
    • No moral guardians have gotten up in arms about the Sax and Violins on this page? For shame!
    • Acoustic guitars sometimes have that effect on this troper, especially when played in the classical style. I don't have an acoustic playlist on my computer for nothing.
  • One of my online friends can imitate Solid Snake's voice pretty well. Another of my online friends really loves this. And still other online friends think I can do a sexy Snake voice, but I think it's really just a more generic deep voice.
  • A particularly horrible subversion. This troper knows possibly the most *cough* specialized woman at his school (red hair, very thin, wears fucking corsets) but her voice is like broken glass in a wood chipper. *sigh*
  • This troper's sort of ex-boyfriend has that going on without trying, which only contributes to his insane ability to cause Distracted By The Sexy in this troper. And then he pretends to run a phone-sex line. Do not ask this troper to focus if this guy talks like that to him again.
  • This troper has a friend that has an amazing vocal range and sings in a fairly successful local band. Considering this troper has started getting closer to said friend, it doesn't really help the situation.
  • This troper and his girlfriend visited a TV hire shop to make enquiries. The female assistant that spoke to us went through a long spiel describing the various deals that were on offer, in the most beautiful, soft, Scottish lilt either of us had ever heard. When she left us to make up our minds, we looked at each other and burst out laughing, as we had both been so distracted by the sound of her voice, neither of us had listened to a word she was saying.
  • One of the This Troper's friends in his amateur voice acting group, is, rather amusingly, sexually aroused by his own voice. Seriously. Personally, This Troper has also been told that he has a "sexy voice" by his female Canadian friend.
  • This Brazilian Troper is preparing to work at an English course in her town. One of her colleagues is an English guy. As it's an English course, he only speaks English, with that very sexy accent. And has a deep, sexy voice. And is damn hot to boot. Someone pleasepleasePLEASE remind me that I am already committed and that I love my boyfriend very, very much.
  • This troper's natural voice is far from this effect. He sounds a bit like Brent Spiner. However, he can sometimes do good impersonations, and has had...interesting...results from imitating Brandon Lee and Vincent Price.
    • Brent Spiner? This troper will be in her bunk.
    • As will this troper.
  • This troper goes absolutely crazy for great singing voices, to the point where in the past year two new male acquaintances previously attributed as friends have had their status... reexamined... upon the discovery of their gorgeous baritone/bass voices. It's to the point where I (a serious singer, probable Music major) have trouble focusing on performance while they are singing nearby. This would be a problem were it not so seriously pleasurable.
    • Not to be rude, but it sounds like you would LOVE me and my group of friends (certain members of it, at least.) Seriously, you just described our singing voices almost EXACTLY.
  • I have this friend who started singing "Sweet Transvestite" in a very good imitation of Tim Curry. I certainly did not briefly consider asking him out.
  • This Troper was this to his ex-girlfriend, but can't figure out why for the life of him. I mean, sure it's pretty deep, and I've been told I have excellent enunciation, but I can't sing for my life, and I doubt that anyone would go gay for my voice.
  • I had a bit of an awkward moment when, after the school talent show, I informed a female friend of mine that she had a sexy voice. Fortunately she took it as a compliment and her boyfriend found it funny.
  • This troper normally is rather high pitched and vocal, enough that when she is delighted and laughing, her friends claim she hits pitches only dog whistles match. However, she has found that when she is stretching, the sounds she makes in relief remind her friends of certain animation that's very not safe for work and one friend has asked her to record herself doing so for... material.
  • This troper has no idea why her voice sounds as deep as it occasionally does, but has had a few people claim it's sexy. But a great deal more wonder if there's something wrong with her voice.
  • This troper has a decided thing for baritones, and low voices in general. She has come to the conclusion that she is not quite as asexual as she always assumed, but audiosexual. (although the asexual still applies, she still doesn't want to have sex with anybody, just the voice)
  • This troper's female friends occasionally claim that his voice is sexy. Which is weird, because when recorded with most recording devices, his voice usually sounds pathetically low, weak and emotionless. However, I've learned how to do a really good Don La Fontaine impression lately, and often narrate stories or plays with "sexy voices", which people claim to be genuinely sexy.
  • This female troper prefers slightly scratchy tenors to baritones, for the most part. No idea why.
  • This lurker has recently discovered a friend who has this going on, with her Belgian accent and low, slightly monotonous voice. Hello, voice kink I didn't know I had. (Best part? She sounds a bit like GLA Do S' "sexy" voice.)
  • This Troper has a fencing teacher whose voice I can best describe as a cross between Uncle Phil and Keith David.
  • This Troper attends university in the southeastern United States, where everyone either sounds like Larry the Cable Guy or Kellie Pickler. One morning in the computer lab she sat next to a young man who was chatting with a friend on Skype. Said young man had a British accent - London, I think. This Troper did not get much work done that morning, though she kept her headphones on and pretended to be working hard. If she finds said young man again, she will ask for his email address. No doubt about it.
  • I know that the person I'm about to mention will KNOW who this is. There's a certain person this lurker knows over the 'net that can do the most ORGASMIC versions of... certain anthropomorphic nations - All of the main characters, as in all of the Axis and Romano, the Allies, and Spain, (oh good God SPAIN unfunf), I kid you not - among many others. Said dubber already does an abridged series (almost all voiced by him), has done a Halloween series of vids, is also a classically trained singer and pianist, and... Need I go on, or do you see the melted brain in my keyboard?
    • Who is this dubber? I BEG a link.
    • It's the above lurker (now a troper, yay~)! It's www.youtube.com/user/platinumspeed . Send him some love. I sure have. >w<
      • Above troper just realised they sound like an advertisement. Failtiems. (Still waiting for Platinum Speed to realize who this is...)
  • This Troper is an aspiring voice actor, and one of my little personal dreams is to have someone tell me my voice is sexy. The only person to do it is... a gay friend. Dammit.
  • At this troper's music performance, there was a guy who had the most haunting baritone voice ever. He apparently attracts a bunch of hot-cold girls and is loved by the music teachers. His voice is extremely distracting while performing, especially when he's moaning and you're suppose to hate him. Makes me melt, but this troper's not into age differences anyway.
  • I wouldn't normally put myself down, but I've been told by friends of mine that I could be the next Thurl Ravenscroft. In choir during bass sectionals, I have been known to cause otherwise entirely straight guys to make rather inappropriate noises. Also I tend to get picked to read from plays and novels in the part of villains. I do so love my voice.
  • A sexy voice seems to be a requirement for being a Lyokofreak.
  • This troper never really got this trope. Then she heard her best friend singing... good God no wonder she got the role of the Fairy Godmother. Apparently troper isn't the only one who thinks this; another (perfectly straight, mind you) friend came up to her after the first performance and gushed, "I LOVE YOU. MARRY ME" because she was apparently in love with Miss Fairy Godmother's voice.
  • This troper was told buy a girl he knew while they were talking on the phone that she "gets off to your[my] voice." I think that counts.
  • This troper has a deep and rumbling voice, to the point that this boss at his residency nicknamed him "Barry" (as in Barry White). Only once have I been told it's a sexy voice, though. Too bad I have trouble actually saying things due to my freakishly-large (someone elses's description, not mine) tongue.
  • This troper once saw a high school production of SweeneyTodd. The titular character had a... particularly disarming voice, to say the least.
  • In the words of a certain lady this troper knows, "your voice holds the power of suggestion to make me feel less nervous". She meant every implication that implies.
  • This troper likes husky dark deep voices. This weird vocal affect some people just have totally turns me on.
  • This tropette's boyfriend's voice has a habit of disarming her at times. No particular reason, well... maybe the British gentleman accent with vague agricultural here and there... and the gentleman snark in some cases... combined with Large Ham, win facial expressions and brilliant glasses... did I mention he's a geek too?... *sigh*...
  • This troper has been told that his voice is entrancingly sexy while speaking French or Russian, but not so much German (and yet this troper finds German accents to be the epitome of this trope). I also have a friend who imitates a wide range of accents (Cockney, Irish, Scottish, Italian, Spanish, etc.) and they are all ORGASMIC!!! Then again, his normal voice is too.
  • This troper, aside from liking deep voices in general, is always amused when he finds folks whose voices don't match their appearance; really skinny dudes with voices like Christopher Lee's or Alan Rickman's, or really big guys with high-pitched, squeaky voices. Brendon Urie, as an example of the former, springs immediately to mind. Perhaps this comes of being a small fellow with an unexpectedly deep voice myself.
  • Does anyone else really love English accents?
    • You're not alone. Not at all.
  • This Troper finds her minion's voice to be orgasm-inducing at fifty paces. And when he speaks like a Jagermonster from Girl Genius ...... it gets even more orgasmic. He has such a lovely deep voice, he can almost rattle windows, and he can set my nerves abuzz so wonderfully....
  • This Troper always gets 'You have a very sexy voice' when I chat with men. I did for a while consider doing phone sex work, but I always called in my 'interview' voice...
  • This troper (male, 18) has been told multiple times that he should be a radio presenter (just like grandpoppy). Walking into a female dorm mate's room to retrieve something, he said good evening to aforementioned dorm mate's likewise female friend whom she was chatting with on skype and ducked out with the retrieved book under arm. Once I was out the poor impressionable girl said I sounded like some sort of "sex god". However, as my friend was quick to point out, my voice is where the resemblance to a fertility deity ends, physically and mentally. So if I ever drop out of uni, radio presenting it is
  • This Troper kind of subverts this. She was often noted for Suprislingly Good Hentai Moans and imitating woman with orgasmic voice in English, Polish, German and Japanese just for fun, but normally she sounds very monotonous and she have a very dull accent when speaks English.
  • My normal voice is a deep almost-monotone, nothing special. However, my singing voice is almost hilariously deep, and even my longest friends were dumbstruck by how "manly" it sounded. In addition, I do a lot of public speaking and stuff, so my normal speech is quite clipped and projected. Not sure if it counts as erotica per se though...
  • When this troper was still in High School, her Guidance Counselor had to call her mother due to an issue with her schedule. Afterwards, all her mother had to say on the subject was that the Guidance Counselor had a sexy voice.
  • This troper's boyfriend has an impossibly sexy voice. It's hard to talk to him on the phone because I'll forget what I was saying. And then he laughs at me, and I don't even care because it's sincerely the Most Wonderful Sound in the world.
  • Maybe it's just because I like him so much, but there's a boy I know who sounds exactly like Chris Colfer. Angelic and feminine and...ahh.
  • This troper (who apparently lives on this page now) only recently realised she has a serious thing for many, many different voices and sounds. Examples vary from accents (Eastern European mostly ) to musical instruments of all types to certain singers and so on. What it seems to mean for her is that she has to be very careful when she listens to certain songs with family and friends or in public. So very careful.
  • This Polish female troper enjoys playing Team Fortress 2 on one particular server. It's quite likely that this is because one of its' administrators has an incredibly sexy voice. He made a couple of gameplay commentaries for the game, so you can listen to one of them . Though he tends to speak in a much lower voice in-game, when communicating with other players, so it's no wonder I keep getting... uh.. distracted.
  • This troper has a friend whose voice is one of his most notable characteristics. It's normally deep and monotone when he's calm, but it's vibrant when he's enthusiastic or incredibly happy. On occasion, this troper finds it a little difficult to talk to said friend without being distracted by how...erm, charismatic his voice sounds. Almost no conversations go by without this troper mentally restraining herself, so to say.
  • This troper has a friend who has the sexiest Glasgow accent. Anytime he speaks to her, lowers his voice and speaks to her, or growls/purrs at her...He can make me forget what I'm saying and distract me and send shivers down my spine and make me melt with his voice alone.
  • This troper's poetry readings have elicited reactions to the tune of 'seductive,' 'alluring,' 'words were made for your tongue,' and 'I feel like I was just kissed by an angel,'--not all of those from men. Damn straight I use it to my advantage. ^^
  • This troper has two boys in her Biology class with voices like this. Deep and smooth, and just about the only thing that makes element bingo interesting.

Video GamesEdit

  • Gary Smith (who was voiced by Peter Vack) in Bully has what I would call the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. Don't know what it is about it, but I could listen for hours.
  • Ghaleon of Lunar's Working Designs voice.
  • Nevan in Devil May Cry 3. No surprise there, since she's voiced by the spectacular Mary Elizabeth Mc Glynn.
    • Dante in the same game. Brrrr. This troper was very happy to learn that his voice actor from that game returned to the role for Devil May Cry 4 (it's unusual for this series).
      • Nero! MELLLLT... Funfact: His english voice is the by the same VA that does Ichigo's in Bleach english dub.
      • Johnny Yong Bosch could read this troper the phone book and she would be one happy fangirl.
  • Augh. Ulyaoth from Eternal Darkness, of all people.
  • The aptly named Velvet Velour from VtMB. Oh Velvet, never stop talking.
  • Naomi, Female!Shepard, Bastila... basically any game character voiced by Jennifer Hale.
  • What, no love for the sexiest Merc of all time, Jennifer Mui? This Troper generally finds "high maintenence" to be a colossal turn-off, but DAMN.
    • On the subject of Mass Effect... "The commanding officer is ashore. XO Pressly has the deck." Why, oh WHY, Bioware, did you waste a smexy voice like that on two measly lines?
    • Wrex. Gotta love a voice deep enough to rattle the desk if you've left the sub-woofer up too high.
    • Thane and his raspy voice. I only need to hear two lines from him before I get very pleasant shudders...
    • Captain Anderson and Admiral Hackett. Two low, stern voices of authority. Mmm-mmm. And for bonus points, Keith David and Lance Henriksen team up to boss you around some more as Sgt. Foley and General Shepherd.
    • Um, aren't we missing somebody kind of important? Raphael. Sbarge. Full. Stop. He's the voice of both Kaidan Alenko and Carth Onasi, and... if it was possible to marry a voice, I would be first in line to marry his. Also, Garrus. As if we needed another reason to love the guy.
    • Harbinger from Mass Effect 2, as voiced by Keith Szarabajka: "If I have to tear you apart, Shepard, I will." Holy shit, why is that so sexy?
    • Miranda, voiced by Yvonne Strahovski (also of Chuck). I could listen to that woman's voice for days.
      • Seconded. She has the unique to make every line sound like either a spanking's coming or that you've been a good little boy. Sometimes both!
    • Tricia Helfer (of Battlestar fame) as EDI.
  • Jen Taylor (Halo, Left 4 Dead, 1 vs 100) also has a very... intriguing voice.
  • Axel from Kingdom Hearts II, voiced in the English version by Quinton Flynn, not only melts panties with his Fira but also when he speaks.
    • While the sex appeal of Axel's voice is undeniable, another note-worthy voice is that of Luxord from Kingdom Hearts II, who can be so incredibly obscure and yet so sexily British that this Troper would rather not skip the formalities.
    • This troper would like to throw in Xemnas for consideration. That smooth, epic baritone...and I'm straight!
      • Seconded.
    • I love Quinton Flynn's voice. Yes, even as a girly Raiden in [MGS2. It's so sexy.
    • The combined powers of Quinton Flynn and Crispin Freeman as Reno and Rude in Advent Children and subsequent games in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII elevated these two from being minor characters to two of this troper's favourite ones.
    • I can't leave out Marluxia, either. His voice may be cold, monotone, and emotionless, but OH GOD, it is sexy. And really, everything sounds just so unbelievably sexy in French.
      • Japanese Marluxia, at least. On the dub, we'll have to agree to disagree. On that note... (English) Xaldin. Freakin' Xaldin.
    • I don't care if some people think the acting was sub-part, Terra can whisper sweet nothings to me any day.
      • I'll second that if I get Aqua in the other ear.
    • Richard Epcar will never truly replace Billy Zane as Xehanort's Heartless, imho. Zane's performance, hammy as it was, confused my sexuality for years.
  • This Troper has heard the voice of Shadow The Hedgehog described as this. Both the David Humphries take on it and the one lent him by Jason Griffith. The voices for Rouge definitely qualify.
    • This Troper also agrees with the thing about Shadow's voice. Silver's voice does the same thing. And so does Knuckles' early Sonic X voice *coughscrollupcough*
      • This troper hasn't even heard Travis Willingham's Knuckles and she knows she's gonna love it.
      • If Shadow's Japanese voice actor, Kōji Yusa, doesn't do it for you, I don't think you're human
  • Snake.
  • Golbez, but particularly as voiced by Peter Beckman in Dissidia Final Fantasy. My, oh my...
    • I can't be the only one with the hots for The Emperor's voice, can I? Particularly with some of the lines he gets—the evil laugh and his Terra encounter phrase ("Why don't you let me control you?") stand out.
  • Auron, with that deep, smooth voice. And for a bonus, he sounds sexy in both Japanese and in English version. However, this Female Troper prefers the English one.
  • Paine from Final Fantasy X-2
    • Indeed. The smooth snarky alto. . .this female troper both wants a voice like that and WANTS a voice like that.
  • Sasha Nein, there's no doubt about it. Not only does he have a smooth voice, but everything sounds sexier in German accent!
  • I don't find it sexy per se, but I could listen to Andrew Ryan's voice all day and not get tired of it. On a more straightforward note, Dr. Lamb. So icy, so precise, so evil... so sexy.
  • Oh yes, but I did so enjoyAtlas' accent. Even if it wasn't for long :[
  • Shinjiro Aragaki. Why yes, I am ready for this.
  • Laura Bailey's already in the anime section, but since this troper's most familiar with her as Rayne, she goes here too. Plus she's as sexy as her voice.
  • I'm not a Cloud fangirl at all (Cyan being my favorite Final Fantasy Character). But listening to him in Dissidia... I really could just listen to that all day.
    • Let's add all of his voiced appearances to the list. In both English and in Japanese! I would listen to Sakurai and Burton read the phone book to just to hear Cloud's voices.
  • I refuse to believe that Vincent Valentine (who became popular enough to get his own game after Final Fantasy VII) is not yet on this list. I love his original voice (by Shougo Suzuki) even more than dubbed. And that's freaking something when he's dubbed by Steve Blum.
  • I can't believe that the multiple mentions of Final Fantasy VII got away without touching upon both the Japanese and English versions of Sephiroth in Advent Children -- i.e., ToshiyukiMorikawa and George Newbern. If there was ever a voice to twisted panties (and boxers) the few smug lines he gets to say definally qualify for the top spot!
  • Final Fantasy XII. Gideon Emery as Balthier. I can listen to him alllllllll day. ♥
    • Definitely seconded. It's so smooth and suave — and that accent. Swoon.
    • Oooh god, Gideon Emery. I think I encountered him the first time in Dragon Age II, with
      deep, growly, throw-you-against-a-wall Fenris and then I ended up spending half my time in
      Skyrim attempting to find Imperial Soldiers voiced by him.
    • GIdeon Emery's voice in Dragon Age II automatically convinced this troper to pursue Fenris as her character's romantic interest.
    • Marquis Halim Ondore IV's voice. The weird British-Indian kind of accent that Tom Kane does. Oh god, yes. I wanted to do that character from the second he started narrating the game in the beginning.
  • Tales Of Symphonia. Kratos Aurion. Whether he's being cold and Badass, brimming with righteous fury, or showing a rare moment of actual warmth, his voice never fails to make this troper melt.
    • This troper agrees with the above, and also nominates the pretty-boy Zelos Wilder with his remarkably sexy voice. He's got every reason to brag about it.
  • Assassins Creed. Dammit Ezio. Everything is sexier in Italian.
    • Also, Shaun. He would be the most magnificent dickhead in the game if it wasn't for that voice. This goes for Danny Wallace in real life too, except he's less of a douchebag.
  • This troper opens the door of the magic shop in a certain town in Might and Magic VIII several times if she does it once, just to hear the lizardman owner say (well, slightly mispronounce) "Tomes of knowledge here!" He may have scales and a tail and only one line, but that one line... like honey for the ears.
  • Why, why, why has no one mentioned Ellen McLain yet? I don't know which sounds sexier - Portal's sociopathic supercomputer or Team Fortress 2's supervillain announcer.
    • While we're on the subject of TF2...I offer everyone this gift of the Sniper. Oh, God... He could insult me in that voice all day.
      • When one considers that the Sniper's voice actor is Ellen McLain's husband, one has to wonder just what those two sound like in the bedroom.
    • Dare I mention that I have a good Gla Dos impression?
    • Ellen Mclain's voice during the turret opera. Mein Gott.
    • "Now... ve practice medicine." Smirk. Swoon.
    • Speaking of Portal, Wheatley. Never has a West Country accent sounded so sexy.
  • No love for Draenei women? After five years of having those grating, repeated error messages - "Not enough mana! Don't have a target! Need more mana! I can't do that yet!" - switched off, I made my first female Draenei and found myself ramping up their volume then deliberately spamming my moves just so I could hear them some more.
  • Anders. That is all.
    • Oh indeed. That scene where he tells Hawke "For three years I have lain awake at night aching for you" with that desperate desire in his voice...and moans as Hawke kisses him...wow.
      • And Alistair. There's just something about snarky Brits, isn't there? Even his Evil Laugh is hot. And during romances, when his voice gets all low and seductive, well....
        • Pure audio chocolate. That is the onyl way to describe Alistair's "flirty voice." Oh, god damn you, Steve Valentine and your amazing voice. Damn you to the darkest circles of hell.
        • When he murmurs that gentle "hmm?" and "My love?" and says "So I fooled you, did I? Good to know" - ohh, the sound goes straight from my ears to. . .umm, places really far from my ears. And his "lustful voice" ("being around you makes me crazy" and "I can't wait to be alone with you") is perfect - it just screams "I'm a polite gentleman, but I'm desperately horny." Uuunnnf.
      • While I second both of those, for the love of the Maker, how did we mention Dragon Age and Leliana wasn't first? I mean, sure she's this (female) Troper's personal fetish, but God, her voice. I need a cold shower just thinking about it.
      • What about Gideon Emery voicing Fenris in Dragon Age II? Dammmmnnnn...
      • Sebastian Vael in Dragon Age II. Oh, Scottish accent!
  • ANYONE voiced by Raphael Sbarge. Kaidan, Carth, even Scorch and Professor Zei all make this troper tingly. Pure aural sex, people.
  • God bless Square Enix for deciding to update Dragon Quest VIII with voice-acting. Jessica Alexander deserves a mention, for her voice actress managed to make her even more sexy than before, with that strong, hot-as-hell voice with the added touch of a British accent. Just thinking about it makes me sweaty...
  • What Thane Krios and Garrus Vakarian lack as romance options in human appearance, they make up for with voices a Femshep could listen to all-ll-ll day. Also, Tali's accent. This troper's favorite of the three is definitely Thane, though - deep, quiet, slightly metallic rolling rumble on a character who is well-mannered and really well-spoken anyway? Ooh.
    • For this troper it was Ashley. Even if you are part of the Hate Dumb that thinks she is The Scrappy you can't deny that Kimberly Brooks gave her a sexy voice.
  • Fred Tatasciore as Megatron in Transformers War For Cybertron. Everything he says is dee-liciously hammy, even when he's low on health!Megatron: My patience grows as low as my energy levels!
  • I often find it hard to concentrate on flying my plane whenever Kei Nagase speaks up. Of course, maybe that was the point at the end of the game, right before the SOLG showed up over Oured Bay...
  • David Nowlin as Sam. Sure, he's a dog, but... grrrowl. I could listen to him talk all day.
    • And I know for a FACT that I'm not alone! I think.
  • Nathan freaking Drake. Nolan North's voice coming out of a character with a sexy body and handsome mug? Yes plz.
    • The Indonesian stuff he spoke is just great too. "Buka pintu... SIALAN LO! CEPATAN BUKA PINTU!!!". Nolan North, you seriously just made us Indonesian proud.
  • I don't quite understand why people gets turned off with Litchi Faye-Ling's Japanese voice. It's high pitched, yes, and she does kinda sound like she's moaning when she's hit. Erotic? OH HELL YES!! Even when she's speaking normally, that still manages to sound sweetly erotic! Not to mention she manages to make a normal humming (as seen in Bang's Gag Reel) EROTIC!
  • Playing Killer7 with a friend, our first reaction to hearing Mask de Smith's voice was "... SEXY." Unfortunately, while I was searching Youtube for examples, I could only find scenes where he slips in some Gratuitous Spanish that sounds way too forced, and it kind of ruins the sexy effect.
  • Say what you will about Van Grants from Tales Of The Abyss, but he was voiced in the English release by Michael Mc Connohie, which means the man may have been evil, but damn did he ever have a sexy voice. Supposedly he also has an amazing singing voice, but unfortunately he never sings during the course of the game. (Which may not be a bad thing- If he had, PS2s probably would have exploded from the sheer level of awesome.)
    • Speaking of Tales of the Abyss, Jade Curtiss. Either one.
      • Oh god yes. I agree. There's something about the sexy, sinister snobbery that is just...so delicious. The way he pronounces the letter "l" in particular, for some reason. Even better, though is the barely contained rage when he casts Indignation. And when he mockingly calls Luke "Master" at the beginning of the game - hnnng.
    • Agreed about Van!! McConnohie's voice is one of the reasons I like Xenosaga so much.
  • The Commandant. Whooooooa nelly. Evil Sounds Deep, indeed.
  • The Diamondback unit from Starcraft II. Especially: "Have you no shame? ...Good, neither do I." Oh my.
  • Albert Wesker...
    • Sandy Cahill as Ada Wong, Paul Mercier as Leon S. Kennedy, and Sam Riegel as Steve Burnside.
  • Juri. "That felt good, didn't it?" Oh dear god what happened to my legs I think they turned to goo.
  • Nathan Spencer. (Surprisingly voiced by Mike Patton.) "Is that a long health bar, or you just happy to see me?" Oh my gosh, that line, especially, just turns me into a mindless, squealing idiot. Just one of Spencer's many... selling points.
  • The voice of Nel Zelpher in Star Ocean 3 does it for this troper. (Her voice actress is Wendee Lee; pity she's married.)
  • Yen Sid's narration from the opening cinematic of Epic Mickey. That voice is just plain AWESOME.
  • Midna. I orgasm every time I hear that voice of hers.
  • Team Fortress 2 is definitely noteworthy. Case in point, the Engineer. That's all what happens when you fight a man...
  • Lori Alan, as the Boss. 'Nuff said.
  • Elizabeth. Her opening lines in your fight with her (1:43-2:00) manage to give this troper shivers every time.
    • Seconded. any of her voiced lines appeal to this troper, though especially the scripted lines in her battle. 
  • Unreal Tournament's sexy announcer voice.
  • Neku. Sweet Jesus, Neku. His voice is plain sexy on its own, but when he says anything in a low, gruff whisper, I absolutely melt. Case In Point: "Open up your senses..."
    • Joshua's Japanese voice. Hnnggh.
  • Vulpes Inculta from Fallout: New Vegas. I don't know why that voice does it for me, but it does. The scene convinced me to side to with the Legion just so I could talk with him some more.
  • Joshua Graham from the Fallout: New Vegas DLC Honest Hearts. He sits there reciting scipture and it's like "zzzzzz hnnnngh overload"
  • Tara Platt as Green Heart from Hyperdimension Neptunia is incredibly pleasant to listen to. It's like if comfort food talked to you.
  • Even Cristina Vee is capable of this. Her performance as Sarapatra in Ar Tonelico 3 gets me all hot and bothered.
  • GlaDos from portal 1 and portal 2 anyone? Ellen Mclain does her voice super sexy and she is so badass, she has some great quotes which are quite bitchy and that get this trooper going :)
  • In Dawn Of War chaos sorceror Sindri has a beautifully seductive voice.
  • The narrator of Bastion who speaks as if he (In Yahtzee's words) "replaced both his lungs with chocolate profiterolles".
  • The Dark Prince from Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. I fell off more walls that way...
  • How have we gone this far without mentioning American McGee's Alice's Cheshire Cat? That deep, smooth, slightly evil sounding voice. I don't care if it's coming from the mouth of an insane emaciated cat! It's still gorgeous!
  • Excuse me. TROY BAKER. Holy cow. Snow in FFXIII and sequels, Booker in BioShock Infinite, Kai Leng from Mass Effect 3, Greedling in FMA, and YURI FUCKING LOWELL, Tales series sex god extraordinaire. His baritone just destroys me. Oh and also, he's releasing an album. Here's the first single. Say goodbye to your virginity.
  • While I find Moira Brown absolutely attractive in general, I'm a real sucker for her adorable Midwestern accent. Seriously, it adds to her oddly adorable charm.
    • And while I'm at it, I am not ashamed to admit that I find the female ghoul voice to be incredibly sexy. Yeah yeah, I know that ghouls look like zombies, but it's just so raspy and whispery and it really just sounds incredibly plesant to listen to.
  • Harry Lister Smith as Dark Sun Gwyndolin from Dark Souls . Oh mercy me, oh my.

Web OriginalEdit

  • Zero Punctuation. Yahtzee might be a self-possessed prick, but man oh man that accent is made of sexy.
    • I disagree with the self-obsession point, but good LORD his voice is sexy at times. Two stand-out points for me are when he says the word "apparently" in that gruff, brusque tone in the review of Nier, and of course, the April Fools thing where he read the last six lines of John Keats' "Ode to Melancholy" in a slow, delectable tone... (SQUEE)
      • (Didn't really mean it in a mean way, it's just how he plays the part...) Don't forget when he's talking really quick in really long sentences, he starts getting out of breath, his voice gets strangled and his accent gets very pronounced... Woah. Just, yum. That's one hell of a bedroom voice you got there, Yahtzee.
    • And then there's this, which left This Troper pretty much immobilised for the entirety of the reading.
  • DJ Sinstress from the tiny, Dr. Demento-inspired web radio station DementiaRadio.org has many fans who find her voice staggeringly melty and awesome.
  • If it were possible, I'd save the The Nostalgia Critic's voice (when he goes evil and sinister) in a jar and hold it close forever. Same thing goes for the The Cinema Snob. Unf.
  • Lewis Lovhaug's voice is certainly awesome, at the very least.
    • And his singing voice reminds this troper of John Linnell's.
    • Totally and completely thirded! When he talks, I melt, but when he starts singing, particularly when he did "If You Should Want the Moon" this troper just about died. Iron Liz is a very lucky woman!
  • AccountingNightmare's voice makes me feel all fuzzy. Maybe it's the Australian accent.
  • The Cinema Snob. Holy fucking hell.
    • Sarah Lewis. I would so make out with that voice.
  • Neil Patrick Harris's singing voice, especially in Dr Horribles Sing Along Blog. No wonder he later played another singing villain who used his voice to control people...
    • This troper must concur! When he hosted the Tonys a few years ago, this troper just about died of squeeing during his 11 o'clock number, it was so awesome!
  • I find Spoony's voice very pleasant for some reason. Not exactly PSL-inducing way, I just like listening to him talk, even when he gets impressingly nerd-ragey. Me and a friend speculated it might have something to do with the the way his voice resonates, as well as the texture, the pacing and pronounciation patterns. (Not that I have watched and rewatched some of his videos just to "research" and analyse his voice, nu-uh.)
    • In the same vein, The Nostalgia Critic's (when he doesn't go howler monkey) and The Nostalgia Chick's voices are just nice to listen to, although this troper suspects it might be a comforting, someone-funny's-here-with-me thing rather than sexual.
    • Oddly, considering it's kind of nasal and has a lot of qualities that are usually considered unpleasant, I absolutely cannot get enough of Linkara 's voice. To the extent that it's PSL -inducing for me.
  • Jesu Otaku has recently started to prompt this reaction out of this troper. Might just be the things she's saying, though but that voice is definitely a contributing factor. Also, Nash from Radio Dead Air. The more exasperated he sounds, the more... tingly it makes me feel. I wonder if he whines like that in bed, too...
  • Matt Chapman, the guy who voices every character in Homestar Runner except Marzipan, has a voice range that's almost more distinctive than Mel Blanc. I would SO marry him if he proposed to me using Homestar, Strong Bad, and Coach Z's voices all at the same time. Remove them from their dorky characters and some of those voices are practically FETISH FUEL. However, Matt is already taken... by the woman who voices Marzipan. Dang it.
  • NEIL CICIEREGA. Singing OR talking.
  • How about a lot of the cast in The Joker Blogs?
    • The actor playing Mister. J does an imitation of Heath Ledger in the role that while not perfect, certainly has some of the qualities Heath's voice was known for in that movie.
    • Dr. Quinzel's voice, slightly nasal and always so droll, is certainly something as well.
    • And somebody was definitely getting off to Hugo Strange's voice, specifically his accent, in Episode 5. The fact that he's conducting a hypnotherapy session would have also did it for some people.
  • Wil Wheaton as Fawkes in The Guild. His voice is pure sex.
    • While we're on the subject of The Guild: Felicia Day, anyone? I found her pretty cute ever since Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog, but then along came Do You Wanna Date My Avatar. And don't even get me started on that Game On video. That woman's singing voice induces orgasms.
  • Heaven help me, but the Abridged version of Yami Bakura. It's probably the accent.
    • Actually, it's probably because he's voiced by Little Kuriboh, who counts in and of himself, if only for his enormous vocal range. Yami Yugi, Kaiba, Tristan's second (temporary) voice, regular Bakura and more are also ear sex.
    • Little Kuriboh in general, this troper and several other people would say
  •  Speaking of Abridged series, im the only one who could go gay for Cooler, dubbed by General Ivan, in DragonBallAbridged? "when your planet is in ashes, then, you have my permission to die"
  • I might get made fun of for this, but Maxwell Adams of The Freelance Astronauts has the most incredible voice. I could listen to him talk video game history all day...
    • It's okay, this troper kind of loves Pipes' voice. And Evek's, when he actually talks.
    • Psssht, like anyone would get made fun of for a fetish on the Fetish Fuel Wiki. Anyways, this troper finds Ferr insanely hot, even though she's never actually seen him. Needless to say she has a thing for Deadpan Snarkers and puns, but also, that voice. Good lord. Not to mention all the times he gets hurt... and makes noises... If You Know What I Mean.
  • I love Red vs. Blue anyway, but I do have to say... I really, really like Burnie Burns' voice. Not him as a person, just his voice. It's lovely!
    • And then there's the Director's sexy voice... which means that it's pretty well canon that any and all versions of Leonard Church have the best voice ever.
  • I don't know if this goes here or under Real Life, but may I nominate an amateur singer? Namely Kevin McLehann?
  • JewWario has a voice that's nearly as awesome as the Snob's, frankly. Especially when he's Jareth, or reading explicit fanfiction about himself or other TGWTG contributors. Holy shit, want.
  • TotalBiscuit has a deliciously proper English accent with a magnificent mix of nasally baritone, which really just makes this troper shiver. Also, if you haven't listened to his rendition of Santa Baby , I suggest you do so immediately.
  • On that note...ForeverPandering. Especially in the beginning of his iJustine review. "I've been culminating effective form of tooorrrture in video format." Umf.
  • You know those Youtube song covers that are rarely any good? Well, listen to [this female cover of Toxic Love from FernGully.] You may never hear this song the same way ever again.
  • The low, rumbly tones of YouTuber ChaoticMonki. Particularly when he reads.
  • Mr. Creepy Pasta.
  • Not sure if it should go here, but the narrator of Welcome to Nightvale has one of the most warm, smooth, calming voices ever recorded.
  • Markiplier. Guh.
  • Cryaotic. He's just so adorable, especially when he's drunk or tired. And oh, when he gets that wee bit of crazyness in his voice... Unf.
  • Certain nicknames are really sexy to me and really get me horny. For example, I developed a huge crush on Ana Marie Cox solely because her nickname from her blog name "Wonkette" really turns me on way more than it should. Don't get me wrong, she's hot and all and I'd already have the hots for her anyway, especially since we think so much alike and I love her writing style, but what makes her stand out to me is the fact that she came up with such a sexy nickname for herself. How can you not get a raging stiffy hearing the name "Wonkette" while picturing that mind-searingly hot lady? Seriously, if by some weird lucky series of events I were ever to have sex with her, I'd want to call her Wonkette the whole time and have her call herself Wonkette. If that actually happened, that would be the hottest thing in the world for me and I could die a happy man.

Western AnimationEdit

  • Tony Jay. Oh, Jesus, TONY JAY. This troper's had a crush on his voice since she was ten. Doesn't matter who his character is- Tony Jay opens his mouth, and my knees turn to gelatin. Every time. Every goddamn time. Don't even get me started on what happens when he sings. The world was deprived of that velvet baritone far too soon.
  • Seth Mac Farlane has an incredible singing voice.
    • His regular speaking voice isn't too bad, either. I could listen to Brian talk all day.
    • His sister, who voices Hayley on American Dad also has a pretty sexy voice.
  • Bonnie Swanson in Family Guy, voiced by Jennifer Tilly.
  • Doctor Who: Big Finish did an animated remake of the unfinished Douglas Adams story "Shada". In their version, the Big Bad's Cool Starship was run by a super-advanced AI with a teeth-grindingly sexy sultry MILF voice. Yum.
  • Azula. That is all.
    • And Zuko, for that matter. Sexy voices just seem to run in that family...
      • Zuko = HELL YES. Sensual, confident, and threatening at the same time! THAT RASP...
    • Cricket Leigh's Mai, if snark was a turn on....
    • Firelord Ozai's voice too! All bow before evil Mark Hamill!
  • A certain Megatron's voice has appeal, yessss...
    • Animated Megatron's voice sounds like he's trying to seduce everyone he meets. It is sexy as hell.
  • Naveen's voice from Princess and the Frog appeals quite a lot...
    • No love for Doctor Facilier?
    • Oh, lots of love. Never fear. ;)
    • From the male perspective, I must admit that the voice of Tiana makes "this troper" weak in the knees.
    • I find Lotty's voice maddeningly cute.
  • Raven; Penelope Spectra; Batgirl; Vicki Vale; The Huntress. What do these ladies all have in common? Tara Strong
  • Bernadette Peters as Rita in Animaniacs, no question.
    • Wakko Warner. I have absolutely no idea why.
      • Could be the Ringo Starr impression Jess Harnell was going for. Or was it John Lennon?
  • Jane Porter from Disney's Tarzan. Minnie Driver may already be mentioned, but I could listen to her give English lessons any day of the week.
  • Meg from Disney's Hercules. For me, the way she says "rippling pectorals" seriously ripples with pure golden sex.
  • Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas and Mulan. Subliminal messages my foot, their voices alone are the reason I've always had a moderate attraction to older women.
    • Does that mean Jane is free? YES. Minnie Driver... *shivers pleasurably*
  • If you can resist the seductive and powerful voice of Maleficent, you're either strong-willed, pure of heart or just plain prudish.
    • or female and straight.
  • EVE from WALL-E. This troper melts whenever she laughs.
  • Helen Parr and Mirage from The Incredibles. (sighs) Will I ever know innocence again?
  • Anton Ego. Damn you Peter O'Toole! I should be thinking that way about irascible food critics!
  • Diego from Ice Age. Both the English and the Finnish versions cause severe cranial bleeding in this troper.
  • Lex Luthor in Superman The Animated Series. This troper wants to make love to that smooth stern tone, immaculately switching to terrifying and authoritarian, and he's straight.
  • The only one better than that is Batman himself.
    • This troper has said on multiple occasions that she would love nothing more than to tie Kevin Conroy to a chair and have him read every single Batman comic book that has ever existed.
      • Did you see the video of him at some con saying the "I'm not the one wearing hockey pants" line from The Dark Knight? It was swoonworthy.
      • GASP! Link, I beg of you!
    • Another fun fact: DCAU voice director Andrea Romano also has a crush on Kevin's voice. On a special feature of Batman: Gotham Knight, she confesses that before sessions where Kevin had to do a series of grunts and sounds for Batman's fight scenes, she would always make him do one sexy groan of her name: "Ah...Andrea." Epic. Win.
  • Uh, hello, Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn? You can not deny that she does the sexiest and adorable-est Brookyln accent you've ever heard.
    • Am I allowed to second, third and forth?
  • I know that Goliath's voice is a hit with the fangirls (and some fanboys), but it can't be denied that Elisa Maza has a voice like melted chocolate and caramel.
    • Goliath fanboy reporting in. I'm 95% straight, but DAT VOICE.
  • This one is kinda disturbing, but Sinister. Terrifying yet kinda seductive, and so freaking deep.
  • Kowalski, Owen, Brooklyn, HARDAC, basically any character voiced by Jeff Bennett (This troper, however, is not so fond of Johnny Bravo... just personally).
  • Dark Danny.
  • Both Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie for this troper. Hey, they're voiced by Danny Elfman and Ken Page respectively, for crying out loud!
  • Nox's voice makes this troper feel all kinds of weird inside. He's a complete nutter, and his voice reflects that, but... Everything Sounds Sexier In French, I guess?
  • Will Friedle doing his Terry McGinnis voice makes this troper unbelievably hot.
  • This troper thinks Ron Perlman's Slade voice is what happens when too much Audio Erotica occurs and becomes Audio Molestation. To quote myself: "Every time Slade talks, it's like his running his fingers down your spine and there's nothing you can do to stop him."
  • This troper finds Kevin Michael Richardson to have an extremely sexy voice. Even as a little fat lemur.
  • Oh, God, YES. To this troper, he's pure, unadulterated audio sex. Especially when he voices the villains, he just makes them sound so sexy and sinister at the same time- everytime I hear him, I just squee.
  • What the hell, no love for Thomas Sangster (aka Ferb from Phineas And Ferb)? This Tropette could listen to his voice all day.
    • Dear god, yes. Ferb's voice is turning this troper into a Shotacon. I mean, that accent...
  • Phil Cornwell. Here's Lancelot and Murdoc Niccals (NSFW) for ya.
  • Jim Cummings — "Lets Get Dangerous!" was bad enough, but in one episode, they had him say "Let's get... amorous..." in his best Robotnik-esque voice. wow
  • What, no love for Paul Kandel's rendition of Clopin? That high note in Bells of Notre Dame is a total mind blower!
  • Total Drama Island: Carter Hayden's voice is pretty grating outside of the recording booth, but third season Noah's voice is just the right mixture of nasally and surprisingly low and deep. Just listen to Strip Them Down if you don't believe me!
    • This troper completely agrees. That voice constitutes for Fetish Fuel all on it's own. Another thing is his laugh. The usual ones are just plain Adorkable, but when he chuckles his voice goes low, deep, husky and yet playful at the same time, it's enough to send someone to their bunk, If You Know What I Mean.
    • This troper, however, believes the title of High Octane Fetish Fuel should go to Christian Potenza. Chris McLean's voice is smooth, laid-back, and downright addictive Fetish Fuel. Bonus points for the deception factor: it's friendly and mischievous enough to catch you off-guard and lure you to him thinking he's a nice guy, but the sadistic person it disguises and the careless, cruel things he says just makes that voice even sexier. And then there's that incredibly hot laugh...
    • On the other end of the spectrum, there's Courtney's singing voice, as well as Gwen and Heather's normal speaking voices.
    • There's also Mike's evil alternate personality, Mal, who speaks in a deep, husky, reverborating voice that's quite fitting for his character. Mike was already pretty sexy to begin with in terms of looks, and Mal even more so. But that voice? Hot damn!
  • Olivia Olsen. That is all.
  • Tiger of the Wind's voice, by Brian Drummond, who's deep, sensual voice was enough to make this troper fall in love at first sound.
  • Ian McShane, One of the huge reasons so many are furry for Tai Lung, and he even managed to make his parts of The Seeker watchable.
    • This troper, being a (mostly) straight guy, doesn't find his voice sexy, but he could listen his voice as Mr. Bobinsky in Coraline all day and not get bored in the slightest.
  • I can't be the only heterosexual male who finds Dr. Girlfriend's voice to be her best quality, right? Anyone? Anyone?
  • This Troper is slowly turning into a furry due to Mordecai's voice.
    • This troper's no furry, but there's no denying that J.G. Quintel certainly has one attractive voice.
  • In The Brave Little Toaster there's a computer who sings in "The Cutting Edge" who has the most seductive, deep voice ever. It is total sex to this troper's ears.
  • In the Sat AM episode "Spyhog", in one scene, Sally is congratulating Antoine for helping her in the mission, much to Sonic's chagrin. Eventhough this troper feels the same way as Sonic, the way Sally giggles when Antoine kisses her hand, not to mention the way she's animated when she giggles, really makes me feel horny. To see what I mean, check out this video, in which her giggle is at 6:41
  • Elizabeth's voice from Persona3 makes this troper want to melt. When she's not doing hilariously awkward things such as pouring a million yen into a fountain to appease the water spirits to grant her a wish or attempting to walk down the up escalator, she speaks with the most impossibly sensual voice I've ever heard. It also helps that I have a thing for exotic, otherworldly women.
  • This female troper finds low timbre female voices to be exceptionally erotic - Amy Lee's voice in 'Lithium', for example, is... just... *drools on keyboard* I tend to listen to a lot of male-fronted hard rock and metal bands (in addition to classical music and swing from the '30s), but most of the female ones this troper listens to have singers with some VERY impressive range. This troper thinks it might be the whole "Seductress Voice" thing that turns her on. Deep, growly male voices also turn her on, but less immediately than the female variation (minus the growling). Perhaps it should be mentioned that this troper is Bi The Way...
  • Gary Oldman. Especially as Lord Shen in Kung Fu Panda 2. You can hear one line of dialogue of his on the website.
  • Scar, The Lion King. Especially Be Prepared.
    • YES.
  • Ponies aren't sexy. But their voices? Don't try telling me Princess Celestia doesn't sound sexy as fuck.
  • Anything Nicole Sullivan plays.
  • I can't be the only one who thinks Jenn Forgie's Nazz voice in Ed, Edd n Eddy is hot, can I? "Hiya big guy," indeed.
  • Due to a major rewrite of the script after the original had already been recorded,Wilbur Robinson wound up with a voice that was much, much deeper than you'd expect of someone his age. The reason they couldn't replace his VA was because Wesley Singerman's voice was too "unique." Yes, unique, in a wonderfully delicious way.
