** In ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', for all the trouble Syaoran goes through to save Sakura, a peck on the cheek is as close to a kiss as they're ever going to get. This is because Syaoran has the chivalrous mindset of "She's the princess, it's not my place". Sakura has to remind him, regularly, to call her by her name instead of her title and certainly doesn't seem to be a bold romantic type, given that she was incredibly flustered after giving Syaoran said peck. [[spoiler:the Syaoran and Sakura clones do get married and produce Tsubasa "Syaoran" after their reincarnation]].

** Inuyasha has this relationship with both Kikyou and Kagome. He was technically engaged to marry Kikyou before her death. Due to magical interference, Inuyasha and Kikyou are seen kissing intimately early in the manga, and on one occasion when Kikyou is badly injured, Kagome notices that it looks like she and Inuyasha desperately want to hug each other (there are people around, so they don't). By the same token, Inuyasha and Kagome aren't physically intimate beyond occasional hand holding or, on one occasion when Kagome thought Inuyasha had died, a tight embrace. It's led a lot of the fandom to believe Inuyasha and Kagome aren't an official couple until the end of the story, whereas in the manga, they're officially considered a couple by everyone (including themselves) shortly after Kouga's first arrival in the story [[note]] His issue is that [[PillarsofMoralCharacter he has formal obligations to two women he genuinely loves]] and, until freed from his obligation to Kikyou, he cannot freely move on with Kagome even though she's his girlfriend. As he once says to Miroku, it would be easier if he could just have both women, an idea the two women themselves would never approve of [[/note]]. However, chastity is very much the name of the game for both relationships, to the point of Inuyasha and Kagome never sharing a kiss in the manga (they do in the anime).

* Subverted in Manga/RGVeda fanfic ''Fanfic/HeartbeatOfTheWarGod''. Ashura and Yasha are wed by Gandharva rite, they hold hot make-out sessions and it's heavily implied that Ashura might touch Yasha, but they haven't consume their relationship in the "proper" way as Ashura is [[NoBiologicalSex sexless]] and Yasha is afraid of hurting his lover.

* Jadzia in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'''s "Soldiers of the Empire" says that she and Worf are this while voyaging aboard a Klingon warship. As they had copulated in another episode it seems to imply that they were fasting because of the needs of Klingon military discipline rather then being a ChastityCouple regularly.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the RomanceSidequest between Female!Hawke and Sebastian along the Friendship path takes this route. Sebastian is an exiled prince-turned-Chantry brother who took a vow of chastity and if you complete it, Hawke becomes a Chantry sister and the two have a chaste marriage. If the romance is pursued among the Rivalry path, then this is subverted as Hawke would have then convinced Sebastian to leave the Chantry, take back his lands and Sebastian and Hawke marry as Prince and Princess.

* As a general rule, the less lustful a relationship or attempted relationship in ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' is, the better it will go. Fuchsia and Crimnee, the healthiest couple, spend most of their time reading to each other, and Slick's relationship with Monique got a lot better after he gave up hope of getting in her pants. The exception to this is Fuchsia's lesbian relationship with Baby Blue, but their friendship seems entirely separate from their gay-for-pay antics.
** The Angels are sort of a spoof of this: they manage to be even purer and more blissful than Fucshia and Crimnee, spending most of their time holding hands and flying around helping people. They also perform "The Wholesome Lambada of Platonic Love" for Slick and Monique.

* Takeo from ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' insists that he will wait until Yamato is older to kiss her or even hold hands with her. Yamato is less than pleased about this because she is [[CovertPervert as hormonal]] as is expected for her age but is afraid Takeo will stop liking her if he learns she isn't as "pure" as he thought. They eventually start holding hands [[spoiler:and have their FirstKiss]] but their relationship is mostly chaste.

* Justified and cranked up to eleven in ''VisualNovel/CodeRealize''. Thanks to [[PoisonousPerson Cardia]]'s... [[WalkingWasteland condition]], she can't kiss any of her potential love interests, let alone [[CantHaveSexEver have sex]]. [[spoiler:Lupin's ending (and to a lesser extent Victor's) have this issue being resolved. Impey's, Van Helsing's, and Saint-Germain's endings have them still stuck in this trope, but they're still searching for a way to get rid of her poison.]]

* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' seems to do this with Ratchet's relationships (and Clank's, though as a robot it's less noticeable). For a series whose subtitles are nothing but DoubleEntendre, the actual relationships are refreshingly innocent.
** In ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal Up Your Arsenal]]'', Sasha does kiss him all of one time (after he narrowly escaped death), which leaves him [[PostKissCatatonia a little dazed]]. He also swears to [[BumblingDad the Galactic President]] he never touched her after he said, "My daughter tells me [[InnocentInnuendo you're a man who's good with his hands]]" - referring to Ratchet's [[MrFixIt mechanical skills]], of course.
** The ''Future'' arc introduces Talwyn, an ActionGirl who does get a fair amount of ShipTease with Ratchet, though both the games and [[ComicBook/RatchetAndClankComic comics]] are ambiguous enough about their relationship that Insomniac [[WordOfGod needed to clarify things]] during a [[http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/09/05/remembering-ratchet-and-clank-the-10th-anniversary-celebration-panel-pax-2012 PAX Panel in 2012]]. ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankIntoTheNexus Into the Nexus]]'', released the next year, upped the amount of ShipTease, but still keeps things low-key to the point that their joking and teasing could be taken to indicate they're very close PlatonicLifePartners instead - the closest we get to an in-game confirmation of their relationship is Ratchet saying there's more for him here than if he went [[spoiler:to join the other Lombaxes in their dimension]]. Of course, given that Clank is [[HeterosexualLifePartners his best friend]], he could have just as easily have been speaking of the robot as her being the one who makes him [[IChooseToStay decide to stay]].

The Chastity Couple is a pairing where it is clear the characters are romantically involved but, due to any number of reasons, they are never portrayed as sexually intimate. The interaction between the duo can at times be mistaken for an affectionate [[HeterosexualLifePartners platonic]] [[PlatonicLifePartners relationship]] instead of a romantic one, however, their love for each other is confirmed by either WordOfGod, [[LoveConfession their own confession]], or other [[EveryoneCanSeeIt helpful cues]], no need to get all perverted about it. [[RuleThirtyFour But a majority will.]]

NoHuggingNoKissing is a trope where there is no true romance in the series except in the [[{{Shipping}} shipper's mind]]. Its distant cousin is the Chastity Couple sharing the lack of physical affection of the former trope. But the partners in question ''are'' in love; they simply are not doing what many audiences may expect.

* The characters in ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' are like this. They kiss often and drool over each other but actually being sexual is never implied. At least one story actually dealed with this. An issue from the 70s had Betty doubting her chastity abilities around Archie. It's probable no sex is involved due to the BettyAndVeronica love triangle. Both girls date Archie at different times and adding sexual aspects to it would both complicate the triangle and [[YourCheatingHeart create even heavier fidelity issues]].
