The Draper effect
Maybe when you're that good looking women (and men) are so nice to you all the time you end up reflecting nice back. Perhaps it's just a reflection. In that case sex appeal is the appeal to something in us that we see reflected in the other. Don Draper reflects - well let's be honest - my skin colour. That's a reflection. As well it's the hair. Black. That's not a reflection. As a child I always wanted to look like Snow White (when I looked more like blonde Heidi). Don Draper is men's answer to Snow White; that's his appeal.
