I'm not sure there are any stated hiding of desires of characters other than Dr. Jekyll. I suppose all of Victorian society did this to some extent. The Victorian world was very sexually repressive. There are critics who speculate that the character of Utterson might be a homosexual but that is an interpretation. We all have primal desires that we hide. We are mammals after all but we follow a social code.
