* Mac did this shamelessly in the ItsAlwaysSunnyinPhiladelphia episode "America's Next Top Paddy's Billboard Model Contest". He even modelled the audition process (to be the model on their billboard) after the bachelor. [[spoiler: Of the three girls, two of them “banged” him and more importantly “banged each other” and let him watch. The third taught him about love and respect. He decided to hire the first two and when the third objected he pointed out that “this whole thing’s about banging”.]]

[[WhatAnIdiot She is most excited about doing a topless scene, even though she doesn't ''have'' to]].

* ''Series/FleshAndBone'': The other dancers assume Claire has made use of this, given her rapid ascent in the company and Paul's interest in her. In another episode, Paul not-so-subtly implies that he wants her to sleep with the company's benefactor in order to keep funds for the company coming in (when the night goes badly, the man withdraws his funding, and Paul is enraged). And in yet another episode, Paul embarrasses his boyfriend Trey by revealing their relationship, then insisting that it is ''not'' the reason Trey has been given a prominent role in an upcoming performance.

To avoid [[FlameWar controversy]], RealLife examples [[Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease should not be discussed]]. Examples should stick to this trope as treated in fictional shows about show business.

* Jill Castle in the SidneySheldon novel "A Stranger In The Mirror" is determined to succeed in Hollywood ''without'' doing this, but ultimately has to resort to it. Even crueler, despite this, she never becomes a big star, being doomed to various HeyItsThatGuy type roles. Honey Taft in the novel "Nothing Lasts Forever" does this to get through college and medical school and to stay in residency even as her superiors realize she's nowhere near as qualified for her position as her grades would indicate (she's not stupid, she just has no affinity for medicine and attended school under orders from her father).

** The movie tones this down, except in deleted scenes, but Woltz complains about another actress. He mentions her talent, and how much money he spent on her, and how he was going to make her a big star, but he seems angrier that he won't have another chance to sleep with her, because Johnny Fontane, an actor who is the godson of Vito Corleone, got with her first.
