What use is Sex Appeal in a dungeon?

This came up in an email.

What use is Sex Appeal in a dungeon?

Offhand, I can think of a few uses:

- getting a positive - very positive - reaction from NPCs of an interested sex, be they man or be they man-like.

- distracting foes

- inspiring NPC hirelings

- annoying players running female elves with a good roll to disrupt their rolls against you.

If that's not worth a point or two, what is?

Apropos the skill name, back in Rolemaster, there was a skill called "Seduction." I always liked that name better than "Sex Appeal." It just felt more broad, and yet more nuanced. I'd change the name but it messes with bookkeeping for no good reason.
