What does the word “sexy” mean? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, it means “generally attractive or interesting”.

A recent survey by Big 7 Travel collected data from respondents across the world to find out which nationality is considered to be the sexiest. The survey asked 1.5-million people where they think the world’s most sexy people are from.

“Survey respondents were given no further specifications of the term “sexy”, so interpretation of the word was up to them,” the travel company said. “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.”

The top ten countries with the sexiest people include:

– The Ukraine

– Denmark

– Filipines

– Brazil

– Australia

– South Africa

– Italy

– Armenia

– England

– Canada

South Africa made it to number six on the list, and has been named one of the countries in the world with the most in previous times.

Here are some famous South Africans who have been praised for their good looks:
