We probably didn't cover everything. But it's as comprehensive as the playtesters and I could make it.

It sounds great. I eagerly await.

Nobody said Vow:Chastity makes you immune to Sex Appeal. It makes you immune to Sex Appeal rolls to get you to have Sex. All other uses of Sex Appeal work just fine, and may at times get bonuses (eg the flustered married man being flirted with by someone who reminds him of his wife).

It was post 109 that I was referring to in which it was said that people with Vow: Chastity need not bother rolling vs Sex Appeal. That post was in response to post 91 in which it was clear that their discussion was not limited to Sex Appeal rolls to get you to have Sex. So actually somebody did suggest that Vow:Chastity makes you immune to Sex Appeal. It was that suggestion that I was responding to. And all I was saying was, "Not in my games. I do it like this."

I see where the confusion comes from. I had started out looking at "can you engage in Sex Appeal vs. someone not interested in your sex," for which the RaW answer is "no." But I looked at the SE passage that discussed getting someone to have sex with you, which is as you say a different question. That was the passage where the issue of Vow: Chastity came up. I had no actual intent to suggest that you can't use Sex Appeal to get a favor from a faithfully married man or woman.
