Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Kelly Ball, a character from Channel 4's ''{{Shameless}}'' fits this trope. She is a better parental figure to Liam Gallagher than any other character.
* ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive SNL]]'' did a skit called "Lolene" about a hooker who's only nine inches tall played by TinaFey. She's saving up her earnings to go to Paris, France but she gives it all away to an orphanage that will close down without any money.

* Traditionally, Mary Magdalene, friend of Jesus has been depicted as a harlot, but this comes from tradition and not from [[Literature/TheBible scripture]]. For an excellent revision of Mary, read Creator/ChristopherMoore's ''Literature/LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff'', which is essentially a subversion of the entire New Testament.

Added DiffLines:

* Patti the Daytime Hooker from ''Series/MyNameIsEarl''. She is always kind, willing to help Earl, never overcharges for her "services," (quite the opposite, in fact), always goes above and beyond for her "clients," is mentioned as having a son that she's putting through hairdressing school, and never eats peanuts or tree-nuts (in case her clients are allergic to those things). Even though she implies that life hasn't gone as she planned (which is why she's a {{Streetwalker}} despite holding a master's degree when most other characters barely have a high school diploma), and she's gotten some diseases from her "work," she never complains, either.
