* 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 downplayed in the visual novel, where while nothing is actually shown, intimacy between the two is implied on multiple occasions, and they share the same futon after marriage.

* Haru and Tsurezure from ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}''. It took them several weeks to reach the HoldingHands phase, and they're still on a LastNameBasis. Both of them want to go further, but their nervousness makes it incredibly difficult. Akane even lampshades it when reading a magazine article about getting a boyfriend:

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' series is chock full with [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship girls displaying varying degrees of affection towards each other]] but rarely does any character engage in explicitly romantic behavior, even the canon couples. Hayate is something of an exception; it's hard to take her [[SkinshipGrope thing for Signum's breasts]] as anything ''but'' sexual.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud and Tifa]] have this kind of relationship late in the main game, and in works that come after (such as ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'')... On screen, anyways. There ''might'' be something going on behind the scenes, but generally left to interpenetration.
** This was later clarified by WordOfGod. [[spoiler: They have sex the night before the final battle.]] Played straight with Zack and Aerith, who never got intimate, despite dating for several years.

** Clara and the Doctor - both Eleventh and Twelfth - qualify as this. This is due to an emphasis on friendship (especially from Clara), due to both 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, also because of his personal NoHuggingNoKissing rule. By Series 9, the "no hugging" part no longer applies, the Doctor being more accepting of Clara's friendly CuddleBug, and even growing comfortable again with hugging her back, as he used to (when he was Eleventh). There's also the fact Clara sees the Doctor as a friend first, and gave a vow to avoid relationships after the tragic death of her boyfriend. (A promise she keeps.) The friendship of the two has an interesting progression, as it starts out fairly flirty and with romantic undertones, but grows more platonic, asexual and ''intellectual'' as time goes on. 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".

* The Doctor and Rose in ''Series/DoctorWho'', more so with the ninth Doctor, but also with the tenth.
** 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).

* From ''Series/ModernFamily'', you can definitely say that Cam and Mitchell are this, and arguably Gloria and Jay too. This becomes more pronounced when compared to Phil and Claire, who have had two episodes revolving around their romantic life and who share kisses in almost every episode.

to:

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Generally necessary with the Doctor and any companions he might grow closer to. It's a family series, so overtly romantic stuff is out, but [[PlatonicLifePartners platonic stuff]] is all right.

Added DiffLines:

* WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and Minnie Mouse, at least initially. Creator/WaltDisney himself said that Mickey and Minnie were happily married outside of their acting career, but did not have a sex life. More modern works tend to disregard this, even going so far as to [[SexyDiscretionShot imply]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar sexual congress]] between the two in the ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013'' short "[[Recap/MickeyMouseS1E17ThirdWheel Third Wheel]]"

* Edward the Confessor was the last Saxon King of England because he had one of these with his Queen Edith. He may have had religious motives or maybe it was because he despised Edith's father Godwin of Wessex. Whatever his reasons Edith seems to have been okay with it and tthey are credited with having an affectionate father/daughter like relationship.
