Gwen Cooper gives some helpful advice regarding sex. (TV: Out of Time)

Sex was the action by which two (or sometimes more) individuals engaged in what was frequently regarded culturally as "intimate contact". Often, this was the means by which they procreated their species. However, as sex was generally associated with positive emotional and physical responses — except when one or more parties did not consent to it, as during rape — sex could also be practised for recreational, and not strictly procreational, ends. Sex was distinct from sexuality, the expression of sex and sexual desire.

Indeed, sex could be practised between two or more individuals of the same gender, which rarely had any procreative implications at all. Precise definition on what specific actions constituted sex varied by species and culture. By the 21st century, humans did not need to have sex to reproduce — the males donated sperm and it was injected into the females by syringe. (TV: Out of Time) Carys Fletcher worked as a temporary secretary at such a clinic. (TV: Day One)

Several species have disguised themselves as human and then engaged in sex with other humans whilst disguised such as the Zygon Kritakh who had sex with Lauren Anderson, (HOMEVID: Zygon: When Being You Just Isn't Enough) and also member of the Slitheen family disguised as Oliver Charles who around early 2006 enjoyed a number of sexual encounters with Oliver's wife, mistress and a young farmer. (TV: Aliens of London)

Time Lords

How Time Lords related sexually was unclear.

By most accounts, Time Lords were implied capable of sexual procreation. The Master, for instance, claimed to have a father. (TV: The End of Time) Likewise, Susan said she was the grand-daughter of the Doctor (TV: An Unearthly Child, et al) and she had at least one child — whom she identified as the Doctor's great-grandson —by the human David Campbell. (AUDIO: An Earthly Child, et al) The Ninth Doctor once seemed distinctly perturbed when Rose Tyler implied he didn't "dance" — a metaphor for sex that had arisen between the two. (TV: The Doctor Dances) The Tenth Doctor also described the possibility of genetically collateral relationships when he told Martha Jones he didn't have a brother "any more". (TV: Smith and Jones) He also said that — long before his daughter was created asexually (TV: The Doctor's Daughter) — he had been a father. (TV: Fear Her) Indeed the presence of obvious sexual attraction between the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler suggested that natural, biological reproduction — or at the very least recreational sex — was possible.

However, another account suggested that sex had ceased to have a reproductive function on Gallifrey long before the Doctor's time. According to this school of thought, the "Pythia's Curse" had made Gallifreyans effectively sterile. Reproduction was carried out by the carefully controlled use of Looms, which produced new Time Lords as fully-formed adults. No direct genetic relationships were therefore possible. Time Lords arising from the same House — for each House had only one Loom — were considered "cousins". (PROSE: Lungbarrow)

The Doctor

Though rare, there were occasional hints that the Doctor did indeed have sex.
