This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Turandot
It's not that Turandot Does Not Like Men, it's that she's terrified of sex! And why might this be? She's the Emperor's only child, with no mother in evidence - or even mentioned. What if, as a little girl, she saw her mother die in childbirth? Lo-u-Ling's tragedy was "thousands of years ago" even by Turandot's reckoning, yet she seems to attach some very real and present emotional issues to it. Somehow she seems to have gotten the idea that Sex = Death, and by the third act she's full-on Sex Is Evil and I Am Horny.
