* Daka from ''Film/StVincent'' cleans up Vincent's place before he returns after his stroke and makes him healthy food for a change, so she seems to at least care about his health. [[spoiler:She also seems like she truly cares for their child]].

* While not ''technically'' prostitutes, Sexual Surrogates acting in their therapeutic capacity do often have sex with their clients. What differentiates a surrogate from a prostitute is the prostitute is providing sex as the service itself while the surrogate is proving sex as part of mental health services. They both get paid.

* Not a main character, but a side-quest in ''TheWitcher'' involves a "Street wise cop, whore with a heart of gold, true love". The chief of the Watch falls in love with a high class prostitute and through their love and the help of Geralt, they break his curse of lycanthropy. It's about the only point of light in the CrapsackWorld that is The Witcher. Unless of course, you kill him.

* Kate from ''Literature/EastOfEden'' is the complete inverse of this trope, the Hooker With A Heart of Pure Malice. Despite having written such a heavy subversion, Creator/JohnSteinbeck loved this trope, and put it to use elsewhere in ''EastOfEden'', as well as ''Literature/CanneryRow'' and its sequel ''Sweet Thursday''.

* Creator/HonoreDeBalzac being a 19th century author, ''loves'' this trope. In his works, we find Esther in ''Scenes from a Courtesan's Life'', Coralie in ''Lost Illusions'', arguably Marana in ''The Maranas'' short story or even the eponymous ''Girl with the Golden Eyes'' (though there are [[DepravedBisexual other]] [[PsychoLesbian issues]] at work there)... Of course, it tends to [[RedemptionEqualsDeath end badly]] for the poor girl. Generally speaking, Balzac likes his [[GoodBadGirl Good Bad Girls]].

* Deconstructed: SamuelPepys (who preferred to harass his maids and his dependent employees' wives rather than resort to prostitutes) references it in his diary in the 1660s, and wonders if men see whores as being better than they are because it makes them feel less guilty about whoring.

* The Platinum Blonde from the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' is an android duplicate of MarilynMonroe. Her builder constructed her and several other androids (all of whom were duplicates of famous, glamorous, and most importantly ''sexy'' Hollywood starlets both past and present) in order to rent them out to men who wanted to have sex with a famous actress. Unlike the others, the Platinum Blonde gained true sentience, quit the sex trade, and became a crimefighting superhero. When asked why she chose to do this, her response was a breathy, "It was the right thing to do".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Shae, in sharp contrast to the novels, where she's OnlyInItForTheMoney and has no particular loyalty or feelings to anyone. By the second season, she has very little in common with her pagebound counterpart. Ultimately completely subverted in "The Children", in which she's found in Tywin's bed, calling him "My Lion", the same nickname she gave Tyrion. She then tries to kill him. She was ultimately only a whore in the end.
