* ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics have many mutants with a mutation that makes sex impossible. Examples include ComicBook/{{Rogue}} and Wither, who respectively hurt or kill whatever living things they touch. Their partners would effectively need full-body condoms. In Rogue's case, the problem isn't insurmountable: there have always been characters immune to Rogue's absorption power (e. g. the Avengers' Wonder Man in her debut story) and also quite a few who could protect themselves through their own powers (e. g. Magneto in the ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse) or through a machine (e. g. the apparatus Joseph built as a Christmas present). Another way out was exposing Rogue to the powers of mutants (e. g. Leech) or machines (e. g. the one used in the "love grotto" story in UXM #350) or mystical devices (e. g. the Siege Perilous) that can strip mutants of their powers, at least temporarily. And then, there's the number of [[MentalAffair powerfully telepathic]] characters around. In any case, with some help from Professor X and Danger Rogue finally learned to control her absorption power and now can have sex if she wants. [[spoiler:Which she eventually did in ''X-Men Legacy'' #249 with Magneto.]]

[[spoiler:Which she eventually did in ''X-Men Legacy'' #249 with Magneto.]]]] Wither was a bit more tragic, however. When he thought he lost his powers after many other mutants did, he melted his girlfriend's arm off. The only person who was immune to his powers was the vampiric villainess Selene, who then seduced him into her service.

* ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'': Wildfire doesn't actually have a ''body'', having been turned into an EnergyBeing by a FreakLabAccident. This puts severe stress on his romance with fellow Legionnaire Dawnstar. Eventually he learns to create a solid body... but it's still made of energy, and Dawnstar gets burned trying to touch him. This is the point where he tells her to just go.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014''/''Series/Supergirl2015'' crossover ''Fanfic/CallMeKara'', [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] can't have sex with [[Franchise/TheFlash Barry]] without her literally snapping him in half. This is averted when Winn builds her a red sun radiation bracelet which nullifies her powers.

* This is a frequent problem in Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''Literature/TheShipWho...'' series, where the protagonists are very handicapped humans who operate as the "brain" of a ship. They can't get physical when they are an immobilized body in a column. Averted halfway through the series, when one brain deals with the problem by commissioning a remote-controlled full-sensory human body, opening up the same possibility for other brains.

* In a deleted scene from {{Film/Hancock}}, Hancock gets propositioned by a prostitute and takes some convincing to give her a chance, when he does, he warns her that no matter what he has to pull out. When they climax, Hancock throws her off hard enough to send her into a wall, because his... ahem, [[DoubleEntendre bullets]] come out with enough force to put holes through the metal roof of his trailer. No wonder he stays celibate.

* Sam's species in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' dies whenever they have sex.
** They also don't gain full sapience until after the species equivalent of andro/menopause. So their society is made up entirely of those who either couldn't or wouldn't breed when they had the chance.

* In ''LightNovel/{{Overlord 2012}}'', Momonga is currently in the body of a [[DemBones skeletal lich]], so he can't have sex because he lacks the equipment to do so. This frustrates him.

* In ''LightNovel/{{Overlord 2012}}'', Momonga is currently in the body of a [[DemBones skeletal lich]], so he can't have sex because he lacks the equipment to do so. This understandably frustrates him.him, especially given that one of the multiple Nazarick denizens obsessed with him is the gorgeous [[HornyDevils Albedo]].
** This trope even ends up causing mild problems for Albedo, who can summon a magical mount which cannot be ridden by virgins. Unfortunately, she is madly in love with Momonga and refuses to have sex with anyone else.

** In the first book, Rincewind is describes as looking like an "apprentice enchanter who had run away from his master out of defiance, boredom, fear and a lingering taste for heterosexuality." Make of that what you will. In ''The Light Fantastic'' Rincewind knows what orgasms are -- he's had a few. Sometimes in company. His first use of real magic is compared to a good orgasm, and most wizards can use magic when they ''want''. The tendency towards celibacy is pretty deeply ingrained in at least some of the wizards. Rincewind at one point finds himself as the only male on an island full of half-naked Amazon babes who offer to give him anything he wants, no matter how depraved or lascivious. He's literally drooling in anticipation of the satisfaction of his desires. [[spoiler:He asks for potatoes.]]

* CalLeandros is so afraid of impregnating the human he loves (he doesn't trust birth control at all) with his half-evil-[[TheFairFolk fairy]] sperm that he will only boink other species that he's biologically incompatible with.

* Isabella "Ivy" Valentine, the whip-sword fighter from the ''VideoGame/{{Soul|Series}}'' series, [[CelibateHero 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.
