* 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.]]

And from what has been seen of the sequel, succeed. ]]

* In the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, the Rector, Noel Paddick, a young widower, finds himself unexpectedly in love with another man: the [[HotTeacher Deputy Headmaster]] of the local Free School, the bisexual Sher Mirza, who is head over heels for the Rector, in turn. And nothing will happen. The Rector's a High Church C of E cleric. Sher's a devout Muslim. Even if their own consciences could be squared, they love each other too much to allow the other to do violence to ''his'' principles. (Their lips have touched, once: when Fr Paddick gave Sher Mirza rescue-breathing after a fire. And that's the limit, difficult though they find it.)

* [[FinalFantasyVII Cloud and Tifa]] have this kind of relationship late in the main game, and in works that come after (such as ''[[FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'')... On screen, anyways. There ''might'' be something going on behind the scenes, but generally left to interpenetration.

* Simon and Nia in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', despite all the other blatant fanservice. They've had just one on-screen kiss [[spoiler: before Nia's death]]. Although, off-screen the director confirmed that they've got it on before. Granted, in yet another interview with the directer, he stated that they didn't, making this a case of DidTheyOrDidntThey.

* Let and Julia are the first, and for a long time only, OfficialCouple in ''Anime/RaveMaster''. This is mostly understood by the fact that Let once calls Julia his lover. Other than one kiss for IntimateHealing purposes, they act more as close friends than romantic interests for one another.

* 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.

** Clara and the Doctor - both Eleventh and Twelfth - qualify as this due to TheILoveYouStigma tradition (which also impacted the Doctor/Rose relationship, and even applies to the Doctor's ''wife'', River Song), and in the case of the Twelfth Doctor a NoHuggingNoKissing rule (though by Series 9 the "no hugging" part no longer applies, in part because of Clara being a CuddleBug, though in Series 9 the Doctor becomes this too). The fact the two were in love, however, is confirmed by WordOfGod (the producer/showrunner and the actors) as well as the actions of both characters, particularly in Series 9. They just don't follow "the rules" of on-screen romance. At least the Doctor and Rose got to snog a few times. In a 2015 interview with Wil Wheaton shown as part of a theatrical screening of two episodes, Creator/PeterCapaldi confirmed that the "chastity couple" aspect was intentional because it was "more fun" to play a relationship based upon what was unsaid rather than just outright saying "we're crazy about each other."

* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'' treats Richard and Kahlan's relationship as this in the second season, because sex might make her lose her Confessor power, which would destroy Richard. While in [[Literature/SwordOfTruth the books]], the pair swore off any kind of relationship, thinking it was an insurmountable obstacle [[spoiler:until they found a solution]], in the second season of the series, they plainly and openly act like a loving couple -- they just don't sleep together.

* In ''VideoGame/MagiciansQuestMysteriousTimes'' you can date other characters, male or female (though the GayOption is referred to as "[[HideYourLesbians becoming best friends]]"). There's nothing obviously romantic about your relationships. You never kiss, hug, or even hold hands. All they do is talk to you more and say romantic things towards you. It could be justified as the characters [[VagueAge seem]] to be preteens or in their early teens.

** 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]].

** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonATaleOfTwoTowns,'' one of the marriageable bachelorettes, Alisa, is a nun. Because of her status as a servant of the Harvest Goddess, your relationship with her will, [[JustifiedTrope by necessity]], be chaste. This means that Alisa is the one marriage candidate in the series with whom [[GRatedSex you cannot have a child.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims'' all teenage relationships are this. Young Adults can have sex and get married but Teen Sims can't. The series would get a higher rating if they allowed teens to have sex and there's likely laws in several countries against it. There are mods to avert this or even allow TeenPregnancy, but it's unlikely the series will ever officially allow teens to do anything stronger than kissing.



* Kotomi and Haru are this way in ''Webcomic/CrossHeart''. They've been girlfriends for three years and only kiss. Haru wants to go further but realizes Kotomi is troubled by past sexual abuse and doesn't want to push her. [[spoiler:They do end up having sex eventually through.]]
