* Literature/InDeath series: Played with. It is played straight with one licensed companion in ''Purity in Death'', but it is made clear that she is still young, shiny, and innocent. Then you have Charles Monroe, who is a male licensed companion who eventually left the profession to become a sex therapist. Some of the prostitutes are portrayed as between good and bad. Interestingly, a number of them have gotten killed off in the series. Some cases can be considered {{Karma}}, while other cases can be considered a testament to the dangers of being a prostitute.

* The Literature/InDeath series: Played with. It is played straight with one licensed companion series occasionally features sex workers (termed "licensed companions" in ''Purity in Death'', the setting, which has legalized and instated regulations upon the profession) as victims, witnesses, and/or suspects. They run a gamut of personalities and mostly aren't portrayed as especially good or bad, but it there are some examples of the trope. The foremost is made clear that she is still young, shiny, and innocent. Then you have recurring character Charles Monroe, who is a high-class male licensed companion LC who plays a supporting role in several books and becomes a friend to Eve (and eventually left quits the profession business to become a sex therapist.

* Lula from the Literature/StephaniePlum novels… sort of. When she first meets Stephanie, she is, indeed, a ho'; after she's maimed lightly and tied up on Stephanie's fire escape, she opts to leave the sexing life to become a bounty hunter herself. She routinely brings up "back when I was a ho'" as it relates to the current situation. She has kind of a stereotypical "sassy black woman" attitude about her that would conflict less with the trope if she were smarter in general. She's incredibly gung-ho about the ''idea'' of being a bounty hunter, but, as a consequence of aforementioned not-that-brightness, she has a tendency to [[StopHelpingMe make things worse]].

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.

* 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.
