If he is unmarried, not seeing anyone, or involved with a partner who, at the moment, is either unwilling or unable to grant him sexual satisfaction, he can provide the following excuse (though typically not put quite so articulately):

* ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'': when a pair of female characters are turned male, they are barely restrained from ''raping the first woman they see''. They come to the conclusion that all the men they've ever known had almost superhuman levels of self-control for keeping that urge in check. This is par for the course in a lot of Piers Anthony's work - that a man's default mental setting is "RAPE" and only the most noble can resist those urges for reasons other than "fear of getting caught."

** In another episode, where George is hiring a new secretary. Jerry naturally assumes he's going to hire a beautiful woman, but George tells him that his intention is just the opposite--he ''doesn't'' want to do that, knowing that it will distract him from his work. He is promptly seen telling several gorgeous applicants that despite how qualified they are, "looking at you, I can't even remember my own name and if I hire you, it's only a matter a time before you file a complaint for sexual harassment.", thus telling us that George would be completely incapable of controlling himself around a beautiful woman.
