Entry:    unlibidinous (adj.)

Definition:  The opposite or negation of libidinous (n): Of persons, their lives, actions, desires: Given to, full of, or characterized by lust or lewdness; lustful, lecherous, lewd.

1667    Milton Paradise Lost v. 449   But in those hearts Love unlibidinous reign'd.

SNOOT score:   1.  You’re welcome to try and find a SNOOTy way to use this word, but it’s beyond my imagination at the present.  I mean, sure, it sounds a little more impressive than unhorny, but how much of an improvement can one hope for?
