** While not outright banned, the highly-psychic Eldar take very great care when making kids, as lust and pleasure strengthen Slaanesh, the Chaos god of excess and embodiment of desire (who was birthed from millenia of Eldar decadence). The Dark Eldar, on the other hand, pursue hedonism in all its forms, as the Webway they live in is mostly protected from Chaos... but they know not to push it too far. Humans, on the other hand, aren't as psychic as the Eldar and need to go a lot deeper into depravity to get hir attention, so regular intimacy is mostly safe.
** As pointed out in ''Literature/CiaphasCain'', not all Sororitas orders have vows or celibacy or chastity, it's just that very few have the time to engage in it. [[Rule34 Fans, on the other hand...]]

* ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'': For Party members, the only acceptable devotion is to Big Brother. Casual and romantic sex are outlawed, with the only time sex is 'accepted' is when it is necessary for procreation, and you're [[LieBackAndThinkOfEngland not supposed to enjoy it]]. One of The Party's prominent youth movements is the Junior Anti-Sex League, who want all reproduction done by artificial insemination. (Of course, the very sexual Julia uses membership in the JASL as a cover.) This adds to the general interpretation where Party members, who are constantly under surveillance and forbidden to express subversive desires, are in a much worse FateWorseThanDeath, compared to the Proles who are allowed freedoms such as porn access and prostitution because the Party sees them as animalistic and ApatheticCitizens.

* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/TheHermeticMillennia'', the Chimarae and Blue Men allowed reproductive only sex, under strict control; the Hormagaunts had the reproduction done artificially. There were also the Nymphs, who by dint of drugs and bioenhancement were all {{Extreme Omnisexual}}s, with the effect of making no relationships special; however, despite this, the other cultures note similarities between Nymph-talk and talk of brotherhood.

* In the science fiction novel ''Ethan of Athos'' (part of the Literature/VorkosiganSaga by LoisMcMasterBujold), the planet of Athos is populated entirely by men who reproduce by using eggs from frozen ovary tissue cultures and [[UterineReplicator grow the babies in artificial wombs]]. The planet was originally settled centuries ago by an ultra-religious sect of zealot monks. The sect's founder believed that women were unclean, so he sought to found a sanctuary where no women were ever allowed to set foot, and this then blossomed into full-blown paranoia and superstitious fear about women. In the present, off-world literature written by women is censored, only men considered morally stable are allowed to read scientific articles written by women for fear they might be infected with this madness, and few Athosians leave their planet.
** While the founders apparently intended "no women" to lead to "no sex", that is... not really how it's worked out.
** The world known as Beta Colony in the same series is arguably an inversion. Sex in just about any form aside from rape is permitted and indeed encouraged - they have even worked out a whole set of codes concerning availability and preferences, displayed to the world by wearing distinct styles of earrings, to get the guessing games out of the way. It is ''reproduction'' that is regulated in a downright draconian manner, via the implanting of mandatory contraceptive implants at puberty. Anyone wishing to reproduce requires Government approval to get the implants temporarily disabled; obtaining a permit for a first child can be roughly equated to getting a driver's license (a fairly rigorous process, but easily successful by anyone who puts in a bit of effort), a second child permit is harder than for the first, and third children are extremely rare. The no-reproduction-without-governmental-consent rules come not from any moral or religious principles, but from pure pragmatism: Beta Colony just doesn't have enough ''room'' to allow complete freedom of reproductive choice.

* The male Zentradi and female Meltrandi in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' are segregated, with a mild antipathy generated between them, to prevent any procreation not under control of, originally, the Protocultures and later on the Zentradi fleet commanders. The movie goes further, portraying the two as being at war, and so uninterested in any case in... intimate matters.

* The Jedi Knights of ''Franchise/StarWars'' aren't allowed to have attachments of any kind like a kind of warrior monk or historical [[TheKnightsTemplar knight templar]]. Children strong in the force are found and chosen to join. Note that ''sex'' is just fine; it's procreation and [[UnfortunateImplications love]] that's the problem. Not that we have example of passionless sex in films; expanded universe rather show that Jedi like Obi-Wan had crushes, but refrained from having sex because they didn't want to let this error go too far. In the EU Luke's new Jedi Order averts this, and Jedi can now make love have families in the order.

* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', {{Shinigami}} aren't supposed to try to have sex with humans (and they are not biologically capable of it anyway). They don't have sex with each other, either; although there are both male and female Shinigami, it appears to be a case of PurelyAestheticGender.
