Quotes: No Hugging, No Kissing
You've been together for ten years and he's never laid one on ya? There's gentlemanly, and then there's just plain stupid.

Link: How about a kiss, for luck?
Zelda: You've got to be kidding.

Link: I guess that's worth a kiss, huh?
Zelda: Hah!

Try, try, try to arrange me / But there's no romance in my blood.
Owen Pallett, "Furniture"

They weren't shagging in the TARDIS, because that would be weird.
"You see I wanted her real bad
And I was about to give in
That's when she started talking about true love, started talkin' about sin
I said 'Honey, I'll live with you for the rest of my life'
She said, 'No huggin no kissin till you make me a wife'"
The Georgia Satellites, "Keep Your Hands to Yourself"

War Doctor: (watching Elizabeth the First snog the Tenth Doctor) Is there a lot of this in the future?
Eleventh Doctor: It does start to happen, yeah.

Then eschew all thoughts of passion of a man-and-woman fashion from your hero's thoughtful mind.
He must spend his time on politics, and thinking up his shady tricks, and outside that he's blind.
It's enough he's had a mother, other females are a bother, though they're jeweled and glistery.
They will just distract his dreaming and his necessary scheming with that psychohistory.
Isaac Asimov, "The Foundation of S.F Success"
