* Zsadist from the ''BlackDaggerBrotherhood'' series has this until ''Lover Awakened'', due to nearly every sexual experience he'd had up to that point being non-consensual on his part. Much of his development is focused on him getting over his many issues regarding this.

* The entire premise of the {{Yaoi}} webcomic ''14 Nights'' seems to be to cure one of its main characters of this. The comic has [[ItGetsBetter gotten better]] about this lately, placing said character squarely in this trope. He genuinely desires a sexual relationship with his boyfriend, but his mind goes to [[FanDisservice very]] [[FetishRetardant ugly]] [[{{Squick}} places]] all too easily. Disassociating sex from {{Squick}} is his much-desired endgame.

** For context, in the episode it is revealed that [[spoiler: when Liz was young, she was riding her rollerskates around the house, when she needed to use the restroom. She tried to use the restroom with her skates still on, but lost her balance and her mother found her on the floor with her underwear down covered in a {{Music/TomJones}} poster. Assuming [[ADateWithRosiePalms the worst]], her mother tore down all the posters of the men she liked in her room, leading Liz to proclaim that "Sex makes the people go away!"]]

* This can be caused by disorders of varying severity, such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love-shyness love shyness]], [[http://www.minddisorders.com/Py-Z/Sexual-aversion-disorder.html Sexual Aversion Disorder]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizoid Schizoid Personality Disorder]]. It can also be a symptom of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histrionic_personality_disorder Histrionic Personality Disorder]]; though such people often ''act'' highly sexualized- in their manners, interactions, dress sense etc.-, this is only because it gets them attention and masks their insecurities, and actual physical intimacy with another person might terrify them.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Because of [[RapeAsBackstory being abused as a child]], Guts HatesBeingTouched by anyone except Casca, and to an extent [[HoYay Griffith as well]]. After being celibate for a long time he eventually develops SingleTargetSexuality for Casca, but he has a panic attack during TheirFirstTime as a result of his pent-up trauma. The good news is that they work through it together, and after that he even expresses interest in doing it with her 1000 times more. The bad news is that the Eclipse and Casca's mental condition afterwards create a different problem: He strongly desires to have sex with her even though he knows she isn't able to give consent, and [[spoiler:a NearRapeExperience with her caused by his EnemyWithin]] makes him fearful that his urges will lead to him abusing her. From then on he tries not to ever see her unclothed and leaves most of her personal care to [[TheCaretaker Farnese]].

* In Fumi Yoshinaga's ''GerardEtJacques'': Jacques is a virgin at heart, a wannabe CelibateHero, and deeply believes sexuality is, oh dear, such a sin. Unfortunately the UST between him and his, ahem, experienced master, keeps piling until Jacques succumbs to [[ADateWithRosiePalms a DIY solution]], and gets a huge moral hangover for it. The whole issue is played for light drama and fun, but in a darker work it could have fueled worlds of angst.
* While not touched upon in the anime, Firo of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' was [[spoiler: once kidnapped by a pervert [[DudeLooksLikeALady who mistook him for a young girl]] and nearly [[AttemptedRape sexually assaulted]] him.]] The experience has left him with a very bad attitude towards men who make unsolicited advances on women, and has made him scared of displaying any sort of sexual intimacy (even something as innocent as ''hand-holding'') for fear that it might be unwanted and troubling to the other party. It does, perhaps, help explain why he [[spoiler: engaged in innocent cohabitation with the same woman for ''fifty years'' before she [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove figured out human emotions enough to fall in love with him]], then stayed in a SexlessMarriage for another twenty and counting.]]

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Klara is horrified by sexuality, due to a combination of a strict religious upbringing and a lot of sexual abuse.



* In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' CrackFic ''FanFic/ACharmedLife'' Light finds the very idea of sex to be disgusting and terrifying [[spoiler: until Ryuk helps him through it.]]

* Han Solo for a while in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' fic ''[[https://m.fanfiction.net/s/2717781/1/My-All My All]]''. Entirely justified, as in the fic that preceded it, 'Important Information', he was repeatedly raped during a horrific torture ordeal. Even after he finally lays his internal struggles with his ordeal and his captor-who somehow seemed to find a way to entire his body when Leia killed her and ended up wreaking havoc on his mind- to rest, it's still some time before he can finally stop seeing his tormentor, release the shame and pain he's held inside, and finally be able to make love to Leia again.
