* Due to how [[TheirFirstTime the first time]] [[spoiler:Katniss and Peeta make love]] [[GRatedSex is merely alluded to]] in ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Mockingjay]]'' there are fans who believe they didn't have sex until deciding to start a family--fifteen years into their relationship. Has been {{Jossed}} already and expected to be so again when the movie comes out but there are fanfictions out there that depict TheirFirstTime as happening after a decade and a half.
** In ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Catching Fire]]'' they are a straight example of the trope, as their love affair and subsequent engagement is very public but initially only for show. While Peeta spends many nights in Katniss' bed there's no mention of the two of them so much as kissing during those nights. During the course of the book Katniss begins to fall in love with Peeta and they engage in a [[BigDamnKiss passionate make out session]] [[BeachKiss on the beach]], but that's as fas as it goes before they are separated.

* Sazed and Tindwyl from BrandonSanderson's ''{{Mistborn}}-trilogy'' deeply care for one another but never engage in sexual activity. This makes sense, seeing as Sazed has been a eunuch since birth while Tindwyl is an old woman whose entire fertile life was spent bearing as many children as possible.

** The fact they never kissed on-screen is rather maddening to fans, to the point that a ''crapload'' of fanart of them kissing has been made to fill in the gaps. Quite a few pieces of such fanart are labelled "the missing scene", either by the artist or by commenters.

* ''LightNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'', despite being the page image, is a subversion. Tomoya and Nagisa are so un-intimate that they aren't comfortable ''holding hands'' until after marriage, and we never see them kiss or flirt. Their relationship remains stubbornly G-rated... until Nagisa bluntly announces to her parents that she and Tomoya are, in fact, having sex. (Just not in view of the audience.) They later have a child together, so she wasn't kidding.

* ''Brightly Burning'', a standalone novel in the HeraldsOfValdemar series, features Lavan and his lifebonded soulmate, Kalira. Their relationship is entirely chaste... though this may have something to do with the fact that Kalira is a [[CoolHorse horse]]. With a human mind and soul, yeah, but a horse.

->'''--Creator/GoreVidal''' on the secret to his decades-long relationship with Howard Austen



* Creator/GoreVidal had a romance with his partner Howard Austen for 53 years, from the time the two met to Austen's death from brain cancer in 2003. How did they stick together for so long? For his part, Vidal credited their success to a deliberate lack of physical intimacy:

** This was later clarified by WordOfGod. [[spoiler: They have sex the night before the final battle.]] Played straight with Zack and Aerith, who dated for years, yet only ever shared one hug.

* Pictured above: In the anime adaptation ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'', Tomoya's relationship with Nagisa is strictly hugging but no kissing. Nothing beyond hand-holding is ever shown on screen (and they're usually very awkward about it), but in one scene, [[spoiler:[[FunnyMoments Nagisa suddenly blurts out, explicitly and]] ''[[FunnyMoments to her parents,]]'' [[FunnyMoments that they've been having sex. (Which they had to have been, because they have a daughter together.)]] and this causes her BumblingDad to [[OverprotectiveDad hilariously freak out]] on Tomoya ("You bastard, CONGRATULATIONS!")]] This is averted in the original visual novel, where they are a more "normal" couple.
