There used to be a television comedy called Black Books and one very funny episode featured a woman in ecstasy because of the voice of the man who read the shipping and weather forecast on the radio. He had a stereotypically sexy voice, breathy and low and she used his voice instead of a vibrator - if you get my meaning.

Now, I'm not exactly like that but voices do feature heavily in what I think makes a man attractive. No matter what someone's face is like, if they don't have a nicely pitched voice with well modulated tones I would not find them in the least appealing. Even Beckham, as goodlooking as he is, once he opens his mouth that's it. The reverse is also true - someone like Stephen Fry with his odd features is very attractive to me because his voice and accent are quite entrancing - and as for Richard Dawkins, Lalla, you are a lucky woman.

Crikey, he said in a nicely pitched voice with well modulated tones.

P.S. Mr Bobby could be a hard taskmaster as well!

You public school boys with those rounded vowels - what more can I say?

I'm truly a sick person. I thought I was looking at something completely different! I'm a sucker for voices too, nothing sexier in my book that a lovely voice that's like melted chocolate. VLiF

Yes, it is a bit misleading at first glance. I don't think you'll have been the only one to think jeez, what on earth has she put here?'.

Voices, how can anyone think they don't matter?
