This is a sex worker (prostitute, stripper, porn actress, or any other similar sex-industry occupation) who has some baseline goodness and might become a love interest for a main character. Underneath the sex kitten exterior lies a sweet flower that needs nurturing. If she doesn't get killed off by an angry pimp, you can typically expect her past to either be quickly forgotten or be mentioned/alluded to constantly.

** Classi, who is far more [[GoodIsNotSoft aggressive than the usual]] portrayal. He initially became [[{{Jerkass}} Nathan's]] girlfriend, but turns on the little snot after he slaps her and [[CurbstompBattle wails on him]], and helps Jimmy take down [[spoiler: the Ads]].

* Six of ''TrippingTheRift'' is a former sex slave, until a programming upgrade made her too smart and sensible to suit that line of work.

* Hilariously subverted on the Canadian cartoon ''KevinSpencer'' when Kevin's mother Anastasia leaves her family and is walking through the streets when she meets a wealthy man who thinks she is a prostitute, mostly because she typically works as one. He gives Anastasia this treatment, but she remains as much of a fat, disgusting, alcoholic, lowbrow slob as she ever was and the rich man kicks her out of the house at the end of the episode.

* Isabella from ''Literature/HollowPlaces'' works as a stripper on the weekends, but that doesn’t stop Austin from admiring her for being honest, unselfish, and overall plain ''human,'' traits he finds lacking in most of the other characters.

** Nandi, and most of her staff (women and men) in episode appropriately titled "Heart of Gold." While Inara was a Companion, one of the highest regarded members of the society, Nandi, who found that life too restrictive, was a "common whore," as Inara mentions, someone who is looked down on by the same society. Because of this, Nandi couldn't expect help from the Alliance and called Inara, an old friend from her Companion days. Inara convinced Mal and company to come to their aid, Jayne especially so when he found out what the "payment" was.

* ''RoseGunsDays'' has [[RedOniBlueOni Meryl and Stella]], who like many women in the setting are in this "job" because they don't really have much choice, but hold their head high and take pride in their role in the end. [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery They can also kick some ass when the need arises.]]

* Subverted to hell and back by ''Series/{{Carnivale}}'s'' Rita Sue Dreifuss, the hooker with a heart of steel; while not entirely lacking in tender feelings, she verges at times on becoming an EvilMatriarch or female MagnificentBastard. She also happens to be one of this editor's all-time favorite characters, ever.
