I think some of it also goes back to the idea of Spock being emotionally unavailable and seemingly unattainable, also.
That last part is 100% it!

If Nimoy emoted every week as he did in Return to Tomorrow with the big smile and the broad style---nobody would have been throwing themselves at him. The stoicism/aloofness was what made women attracted to him--not his looks.
Given that there are millions of women who are attracted to Spock, and given that women are NOT all alike, I don't think anything can be said to be "100% it."

For me, Spock's intelligence, courage, loyalty, curiosity, and shining goodness are the most important things. The alien superpowers are pretty cool, too.
