No-sex sex comedies is the name given to a number of American comedy films, being sex comedies from the 1960s that did not feature sex but were full of double entendres and sexual innuendo.

Examples include Pillow Talk (1959) and Lover Come Back (1961), both starring Rock Hudson, Doris Day and Tony Randall and a number of derivative films that followed.

The film Down with Love (2003) paid homage to the genre.

A related category is "will-she-or-won't-she" sex comedies of which Sunday in New York (1964) is an example.
