* A woman named Miljuschka once whored herself into a Nazi camp during WorldWarTwo, and then blew the whole thing up. More of an ActionGirl, and a pretty grim one too.

* Yuko from ''Manga/MyLesbianExperienceWithLoneliness'' fits the bill, complimenting and accommodating the neurotic protagonist in a life-changing event. Her agency seems friendly too.

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 very kind and good-natured flower that needs nurturing. If she doesn't get killed off by an angry pimp or other villain, you can typically expect her past to either be quickly forgotten or be mentioned/alluded to constantly.

Contrast with the GoldDigger; compare with The HighClassCallGirl and EthicalSlut. In TheWildWest, this character is properly called a "Soiled Dove". If she's got a kid, that child will be a SonOfAWhore. If Asian, she may also be an AsianHookerStereotype. Is liable to become a HeroicSeductress under certain circumstances. And possibly a MissKitty.

Ocassionally women who have actually been damaged by prostitution may still fit this trope. Those will be {{Broken Bird}}s who need to be shown true kindness and gentility to bring out their golden hearts underneath bitter exteriors.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'': Kokona Haruka is a friendly, cheerful girl who goes to school with Yan-chan. [[spoiler:She's also involved in CompensatedDating, which can bring great shame to a girl and her family... except she only does it to help her father get out of debt. Technically compensated dating doesn't ''have'' to involve sex, but it often does, and it's implied that Kokona goes beyond kissing for the sake of getting more money. She doesn't want her friends to get mixed up in her troubles -- should you have Yan-chan offer to help her, Kokona pleads with her to not get involved. If you do help, Kokona's so grateful to Yan-chan that she agrees to back off of the boy they both like out of gratitude.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Revival}}'' has Nikki the stripper: she's drug-free and has strong boundaries against actual sex work. Overall she is a decent match for her boyfriend and a stabilizing force for his son. The boy's mother can't see past Nikki's profession and blames her for the father's failure to improve himself.

* V from the Melanie Griffith film ''Film/MilkMoney''. It led [[http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/movies/videos/milkmoneypg13mcmanus_a09df3.htm one paper]] to ask, "Will Hollywood ever retire the Hooker With a Heart of Gold? [[DeadHorseTrope The concept is so ancient, so hackneyed, so ready to be laid to rest]], you'd think producers would laugh at any writer who dared to propose it." Actually, she was retired and later appeared as her voice of Margalo in Stuart Little 2.

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': The second Ofglen was a former prostitute who views (or rationalizes) her current station in life as an improvement from her previous life and chides Offred for straying from acceptable behavior by speaking with the former Ofglen/now-Ofsteven for self-preservationist reasons. That said, she ushers Offred her away from the scene of Ofsteven's joyride for her safety and gives her some assuring words before they part for the day.
