+1 to communication tests (+2 to the opposite sex).
Beautiful

The opposite sex bonus is not cumulative with the previous bonus. Having said that, the bonus can applies to anyone, (or anything), sexually attracted to that character.

Example: Kat is an attractive young woman. She gains +2 to comminations tests when dealing with men. However, she only gets +1 when talking to women.
