The 50 Sexiest Nationality

Top 50: Most Beautiful People in the World

Look, some countries are sexier than others – at least, that’s what the results of our latest survey of the most beautiful people in the world is proving. We looked to our audience to find out to get an insight into where people reckon you’ll find the world’s sexiest nationalities.

Survey respondents were given no further specifications of the term ‘sexy’, so interpretation of the word was up to them.

‘Sexy’, according to the fail-safe Merriam-Webster dictionary, is classified as “generally attractive or interesting”. While beauty may be only skin deep, it’s probably little consolation to the unlucky countries that have been voted as the least sexy in the world. Sorry, Ireland.

As for which is the sexiest nationality in the world? Our readers have spoken on the world’s sexiest nationality.
