* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': Many members of the Sohma family transform into animals from the Chinese Zodiac if they come into contact with someone of the opposite sex, though the series is never more specific than "hugging". [[spoiler:There ''are'' ways around it, though, if Shigure's little rendezvous with Ren is any indication.]]

* Actually [[EnforcedTrope enforced]] in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' by Fujimi Shobo, otherwise a series with as much {{Fanservice}} as this one would have already gone into a much different direction. Then again, this series is definitely "RuleThirtyFour[=-=]friendly".

* ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'': The Thing has had several lovers since his transformation (the main ones being [[BlindAndtheBeast Alicia Masters]] and Debbie Green) and this has been addressed a few times. The ([[DependingOntheWriter overall]]) interpretation is that he can't have sex because he lacks genitalia, and [[WordOfGod Stan Lee himself]] has said that he never really thought about how the Thing could have sex being a giant rock-covered dude and didn't really consider it important in the first place. This is lampshaded in ''Rise of the Silver Surfer'', when Johnny asks how Ben and Alicia manage a physical relationship, joking that he doesn't want to learn that she died under "a rockslide". All Ben is willing to say is that they have some arrangement worked out.

* ''ComicBook/TheDarkness'' character Jackie Estacado had this problem ever since he turned 21 and acquired his powers (and takes his frustration out on mob goons using Darklings and actually dropping a rabid one down in a [[GroinAttack Mafia Boss's pants]]) until they went autopilot and humped an unconscious [[Comicbook/{{Witchblade}} Sara Pezzini]]. Usually bearers of the Darkness are male and when a baby boy is born the current owner drops dead. Luckily for Jackie, Sara gave birth to a girl. There is a loophole, that Darkness bearers can create [[ArtificialHuman constructs]] for this purpose. However this took a turn for the worse when it was revealed that [[spoiler: The Darkness intended for this loophole, to encourage the Estacado's to eventually create a construct mate that could bear children. The resulting being would be [[MadeofEvil purely of the Darkness]] with no human "weaknesses". Once it was born the Darklings mutinied to the creature's side as it tried to become a SelfMadeOrphan. It went about as well as you'd expect, but left Jackie without access to his powers for quite some time.]]

* In ''Coming Back Late'', Harry and Hermione can't do anything physical together because even though she's estranged from Ron, their magical marriage vows are "till death do us part". After [[spoiler:Hermione is killed and [[RevivalLoophole Harry brings her soul back]] from behind the Veil]], this obviously no longer applies.

** This is then possibly averted in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', where it's revealed several necromancy students only want to be necromancers because they get the official skull ring which they claim is a "babe magnet". Technically it's only ''marriage'' that's forbidden. There's presumably only a problem if all eight children are with the same woman.

* Isabella "Ivy" Valentine, the whip-sword fighter from the VideoGame/SoulSeries, swore a vow of celibacy so that she may not pass on her Malfested curse to any of her potential children. This wound up being a valid concern, as both of Sophitia's kids wound up with their fates cursed by Soul Edge and Soul Calibur. Ivy vents out her sexual frustration by being generally dominatrix themed.

* Similarly, WordOfGod gives this reason for why Jin Kazama of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' strays away from any kind of relationship, or even meaningful human contact for the most part. Being the scion of the Mishima family's cursed bloodline and having personally suffered because of the supernatural forces his lineage attracts, Jin refuses to let anyone else be afflicted by such a terrible fate--to the point that he [[SelfMadeOrphan plans to ensure]] the Mishima family tree and the Devil Gene [[NoPlaceForMeThere will end with him]] in the sixth game.



* One early strip in ''ComicStrip/ThePerryBibleFellowship'' is called "The Adventures of the Man with no Penis". The man takes one look at a passing attractive woman and immediately blows his brains out.

* Way too many characters in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. Fubar has been turned into a water-breathing thing like a Star Spawn. Puppet's secretions are an incredibly deadly poison and also she's on a machine to circulate her 'blood' and drain her 'lymph', so she lives alone in a room she never gets to leave. Compiler's nanites give her superstrength and superspeed she can't control. Diz can't even touch people because she has a force field that exerts eight tons of force ''all the time'' and she can't turn it off. Antenna generates so much electricity he's like a walking lightning storm. And there are more, just on the campus of SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy.
* In {{Literature/Worm}} Newter's bodily fluids are contact hallucinogens, to the point that even trace sweat on his skin can render someone incoherent. While it's his main weapon in a fight, as one reader points out, this poses certain difficulties in the bedroom.

* The FilmNoir MonsterMash ''Literature/FiftyFeetOfTrouble'', features the jaguar people, clearly based on some famous [[film/CatPeople feline-based monsters]]. Whenever they get horny they turn into a jaguar and proceed to try to kill anything near them. And pretty much everything gets them horny.

** ''Series/{{Angel}}'' eventually has the characters work out that Angel's curse isn't the NoSexAllowed curse they originally thought but is, in fact, this trope played straight. In series 1, When Wesley and Cordelia discuss the idea of Angel and Rebecca Lowell having a relationship, Wesley points out the curse's requirement is "perfect happiness" and also points out how rare that criterum actually is. In series 2, Angel can get away with having sex with Darla, who he has complicated emotional ties to, because he experienced "perfect despair" with her. In series 5, Angel doesn't lose his soul by having sex with Eve because he doesn't trust her and they were under a mystical compulsion. Wesley reiterates that "perfect happiness" is very rare and most relationships are formed from "acceptable happiness" instead which is why Angel can have sex with Nina without his soul being endangered. As a result, the only people Angel can't have sex with are the women he regards as his true loves (and the ones he truly wanted to be with): Buffy and Cordelia.

* In one of Creator/PhilFolio's Xxxenophile comics, one of the main characters is a priestess (to the god of contraception) who's under a curse that will (apparently--it's never actually shown) do a BalefulPolymorph on anyone she has sex with. She's also immortal and has been unable to have sex for hundreds of years. [[spoiler:It's revealed that the reason for this was so that she could resist the curse of a {{MacGuffin}} that causes anyone to touch it to become uncontrollably horny, because her long pent-up frustration is greater than the Macguffin's power, allowing her to hold it without being overcome. After she finds it and returns it to her god, her curse is modified so she can choose one day a year it's not in effect. Presumably, this would help her for the next task she needed to complete for him.]]

* In ''Series/{{Alphas}}'' Rachel's SuperSenses leave her prone to SensoryOverload, making sex at least very difficult. She finally does manage to get around this, and it's strongly implied that it was mostly a case of being able to trust her partner enough to let herself become totally vulnerable and helpless with them.

* In the Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality novel "For the Love of Evil," Parry has become a Friar in the Middle ages. He has a very strict celibacy oath to which he must adhere to remain a friar. He had a beautiful, intelligent wife (Jolie) who was murdered, and is now a ghost. He still has a very high sex drive. One night, he has the opportunity to have sex with Jolie, thanks to the intercession of a willing female host. Suffice it to say, his intense performance that evening sets the plot of the entire rest of the novel in motion.
