Agree. There is a "presence" in charismatic people that makes them sexy. "Vitality" is right on. They have a confidence that draws others to them. Vitality and confidence create sex-appeal, even if the person is not "classically" sexy or beautiful. One person who comes to mind is Bill Clinton. Even though he's not the world's best looking guy, many women who have met him remark that his charisma makes him very appealing. Obviously, there's a Monica joke in there somewhere, but I hope to avoid it if at all possible.
