Sexuality and sex itself are usually an undercurrent to the story arc of a novel length work. Even if the story is essentially a romance you’ll find that sex is not the primary conflict. Sexual tension is simply too powerful a theme to carry through an entire novel on its own. Most writers that I have read use that tension as either a motivating factor in the main conflict(think Pearl Harbor, where they are kept apart by war.) Or , as Sam mentioned, the James Bond series where sexual tension is used as both a partial release from the good guy vs bad guy conflict, or as a tool to ratchet up the main conflict by adding sexual tension to the story arc as a sort of side battle between antagonist and protagonist over who gets the girl.

Your stories, the ones I’ve seen, create a level of tension that has to be released within that particular scene. Carrying the reader over through several chapters and scene changes without resolution would require making sex itself ( or lack of ) the main conflict.
