Cape Town – While beauty may be in the eye of the beholder and all of that, the results of a recent world sexiness survey has had us somewhat baffled.  

Huffington Post reports that travel dating website (yes, this really exists!) MissTravel, asked members – both men and women – to rate the nationalities they find sexiest in a dating partner.    

They divided the results into two lists – top 10 nations with the sexiest men and top 10 nations with the sexiest women.

Well, the women’s list didn’t surprise us at all – topped by Brazilian beauties, and including Russian, Columbian and, yes, South African lasses - it seemed pretty spot on.  

But, we can’t really say the same about the men’s list.  

I mean, can you believe that Australian blokes were named the sexiest?

What's more The British Isles are represented rather strongly, with British men at number 3, Scots at number 4 and the Irish at number 7. Sorry Wales.

Seems a little rigged to us. Or what? Are we just being Judgy McJudgersons? 

Interestingly, despite their penchant for romance and the undeniably sexy accent, the French didn't make either list.

Anyway, here are the full lists. Take a look and tell us what you think about the selection in the comment section below.
