** Sherlock in ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' (the [[DuelingWorks American show]]), on the other hand, has lots of sex. It's ([[GenderFlip Joan]]) ''Watson'' who isn't getting any. A fact regarding which [[{{Jerkass}} Sherlock]] is entirely too happy to {{troll}} her.



* This was essentially Gil Grissom for the first few seasons of ''Series/{{CSI}}''; he did make a few remarks to Sara that ship fans now adore, but he really didn't seem interested in romance at all up until it was revealed he was with Sara in the season 6 finale. We don't know the exact time they became an item, but we know it wasn't the entire series.

* For a value of "genius" that includes "CrazyAwesome schemer," the Joker in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. He's too focused on his schemes to care that his minion is throwing herself at him.

He's too focused on his schemes to care that his minion is throwing herself at him. Disturbingly, this series includes probably one of the most brutal (halfway realistic) depictions of DomesticAbuse ever put to western animation.

** However, that may be changing. As Amy spends more time with Penny and Bernadette, she does begin presenting the desire for more intimacy in her relationship and it's implied some of her celibacy at least was from restraint. With Sheldon though, it's just how he always was. However, when Penny and Leonard asked him, if he would ever become intimate with Amy like that, he paused to think about it before mentioning it is a possibility, showing CharacterDevelopment on his part. [[spoiler: Sheldon and Amy do finally engage in coitus a few episodes after they get back together.]]

* ''Film/GhostBusters'': Egon Spengler is TheSpock and a bit of an eccentric, though not nearly as eccentric as either Ray Stanz or [[DeadpanSnarker Peter Venkmann.]] Yet he's the one their SassySecretary, Janine, has the hots for. Too bad Egon's [[ForScience married to science.]]

* Creator/AndyWarhol was another eccentric artist who remained celibate throughout his life.
* Creator/LewisCarroll is often interpreted as this, given that he ''was'' an eccentric genius and a life-long bachelor. There's still debate as to whether he had certain...''[[PaedoHunt unsavory]]'' sexual interests, though. He sometimes took naked pictures of little girls (granted, [[ValuesDissonance this wasn't uncommon in]] UsefulNotes/VictorianBritain), and he hung around with a lot of little girls (like ten-year-old Alice Liddell, the inspiration for [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland that other Alice]]). But it's not certain that that behavior was due to any perversions, and even if he ''did'' have any shady urges, there's no evidence that he took his urges any further than that.

* In WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic Fanfic/AnExtendedPerformance, this is one of the reasons why [[TheAdjectivalSuperhero The Great and Powerful]] [[LargeHam Trixie]] is alone. As least if you ask ''her'' it is.

* Prosecutor [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]] is certainly a genius in his own field and appears to be at least above-average in general intelligence. Yet he seems genuinely astonished that the ladies find him irresistible (or, in the case of people like [[AbhorrentAdmirer Oldbag]], flat-out horrified) and generally just ignores their advances, choosing to expend his energy on his work instead.
