    How important are looks on a scale of 1-10 in terms of sexual attractiveness?

    Very important, lust is something that is base fully on sexual attraction, thus been somebody who you find sexual attractive is the only thing that matter. If sexual attraction is base on personality, then everybody would be gay, because people in general, get along better with people of their own gender, then the opposite gender

    In my opinion, sex appeal is skin deep, it's a matter of personal charisma and vibes that one glows. Sometimes my wife gets surprised when we are watching TV and I would say about a so-so pretty woman that I find her more attractive than some glamorous movie queen  -  I won't mention any names, but I could think of a half dozen off hand right now.

    The same would go for men. Being an old timer I remember how girls used to be crazy about someone like Jean-Paul Belmondo, with no classically handsome facial features, while not caring that much about those "pretty boys" of the big screen -  and there were quite a few in those times. Jean-Paul had that something spontaneous and boyish, vulnerable about him, although not a sissy but a manly kind.

    Now, let's not talk about extremes here, and beauty will always be in the eyes of beholder. So we can't discuss "erotic tastes", while statistically it's probably true that a woman in a great shape will turn more heads than one out of shape. However, a most beautiful woman can be a turnoff if she doesn't have an attractive personality.

    10! As much as people like to deny it for the sake of being PC, looks ARE important. Looks are usually what is first noticed by a potential partner. On top of that a happy sex life is one of the many keys to a successful relationship, and looks play a role in that.
    The great thing though is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Which means what one person feels is ugly is pretty to another. We also all know that looks fade, so looks are really just the opening chapter of a relationship. As we grow to know someone we find other things about them that make them attractive. Intelligence, the way they parent, the way they hold themselves, their confidence level, among other things become the things we are attracted to. And in a long term relationship, as looks fade all the amazing things we end up loving our partner for outweigh the initial importance of looks.

    I guess on a face value kind of thing, I would probably say 10. It's not the only factor for me, but it probably is the immediate one that would lead me into questioning their other aspects.

    If I don't find someone physically attractive, and I have pretty modest tastes compared to just about every other guy I've known, then there is absolutely not going to be any attraction regardless of their personality.

    For me, Zero, because I don't experience sexual attraction. But I guess if I had to put myself in someone else's shoes (someone who's not asexual, to be precise) I would say it ranks pretty high up there. Maybe between 7-10.

    I would say 10, too.  Although there was this one guy once who I did not find attractive at all, but I grew to like him because we had such good chemistry.  We got along so well.  He was one of the only guy friends I had.  He had a girlfriend, and then he transferred to her college, and I never saw him again.  I missed him, and this was before Facebook, so I was never able to keep in touch.  Today, I don't remember his name. This was a rare occurrence, though. 

    Most of the time, if I am not physically attractive to a guy, then the most he's ever going to get from me is being a really good friend.

    I think looks are most important for being sexually attractive. I will give them a credit of 8 out of 10. Rest of the credits assured for personality of that individual.
