* Subverted in ''Manga/PleaseTellMeGalkoChan''; Galko has always been suspected of doing this despite having ''no'' experience in romance or sex. A specific example can be seen in episode 2: Galko said "Papa" (in English) would pay her if she made bread. Unfortunately, "papa" is also the term for the "other side" in Compensated Dating, which causes a misunderstanding. Galko almost immediately notices the looks and starts to protest that she slipped and she really always just calls him "Father", clearing up the misunderstanding while apparently completely oblivious to it.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' some female students may be doing this. If the game's VillainProtagonist discovers that a rival is one of these students, the information can be used towards eliminating said rival, either to ruin her reputation or as blackmail.

* Manga example: In ''Manga/{{Kobato}}'', the titular character is approached by a businessman wanting to be 'healed' When Fujimoto intervenes, he berates Kobato, believing her to be engaging in this practice -- she, being the NaiveEverygirl, doesn't know what he's talking about.

* Subverted in episode 2 of ''Manga/ServantXService''. Taishi was suspected of this, for managing to placate Touko with a hug and a few yen, before Saya clears up the issue by noticing that they have the same surname--they are, in fact, siblings.[[/folder]]

* ''GreatTeacherOnizuka'' had two episodes where Onizuka was persuaded to try ''enjo kosai,'' but was surprised by who shows up...
* ''SuperGALS'' had one of the main characters, Aya, introduced as a perfect student engaging in ''enjo kosai'' in order to escape a high-pressure home and academic life. At the end, Ran helps her see her own self-worth before she "goes too far".
* There was an episode of ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' where one of the girls was suspected of engaging in ''enjo kosai''. [[spoiler:She was getting clothes and money from her father and brothers to spend time with them, because they missed her while she was living at an all girls school.]]
* In ''{{Mai-HiME}}'', Nao Yuuki seems a delinquent type is alluded to engage in this. Later we find out she uses it as a hook to ''mug'' men, who cannot report the crime for obvious reasons. [[spoiler: It's actually a sort-of revenge she takes on men, since a bunch of thugs killed her father and injured her mother.]]
* Takumi's girlfriend Natsuki in the original version of ''InitialD'' is engaged in ''enjo kosai'' from the start of the series. The English dub [[{{Bowdlerise}} alters the plot]] so that she is just spending time with her divorced father.
** By the second session, Natsuki has subverted this trope by quitting her relationship with "Papa" which was endangering her budding relationship with Takumi. She decides to get a job at a fast-food restaurant, mimicking the hard-working job she sees Takumi engaging in at the gas station, when she realizes people are looking down on her for her slightly-whorish behaviour.

* Its not just in Japanese Anime anymore but also was a case in Taiwan Drama ''BrownSugarMacchiato''. The brothers in order to help the boy students overthrow the matriarchy in their class attempted to catch the AlphaBitch in a scandalous act which was related to this trope. Needless to say it sorta worked until she reveals it was her uncle who she was visiting.

The male variant is ''mitsukano,'' often shortened to ''mitsu.'' Male hosts or Visual Kei/rock musicians and some JapaneseDelinquents are the main participants. They pimp themselves out (or are pimped out by their bands/labels/host clubs/management) to fangirls (or in the case of a gay or bi artist choosing to be out and open as such, to a more successful man or one of their fanboys). ''Technically'' not supposed to include sex, almost always does in reality.
