* 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.

* ''Film/ActOfViolence'': Running away from Joe leads Frank to end up on the wrong side of town where he meets kind, yet dumb, prostitute, Pat (Creator/MaryAstor). She tries to help him find a lawyer to see if he can deal with Joe, but the lawyer is extremely shady and is only out to make a quick buck and take advantage of Frank's desperate situation.

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

* Yuka Otowa from ''VideoGame/{{Crescendo}}''; her reasons for her descent into this lifestyle are [[BrokenBird tragic and sad]], linked to [[spoiler: her parents' suicides and the abuse she suffered in foster homes and an orphanage]]. The player can get the bad ending by making the PlayerCharacter a total bastard and having him sleep with Yuka solely for sex [[note]](via failing her SecretTestOfCharacter where she leads the protagonist to a love hotel to see if he can see beyond her carefree facade)[[/note]], they can get the good ending by not taking advantage of her [[spoiler:(and her and the PC can laid together of their own free will in much happier circumstances)]] and [[EarnyourHappyEnding redeem her]]. ([[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ryo aka the protagonist is NOT that kind of guy anyway]], so treating Yuka like that makes ''[[GuiltBasedGaming the player]]'' the bastard/bitch).

Added DiffLines:

* Molly from the Irish play ''An Triail''[[note]]The Trial[[/note]]. The protagonist is a woman who became pregnant out of wedlock, ended up kicked out by her family and ultimately killed herself and the baby after being rejected by the father. While she was pregnant she worked in the Magdalene Laundries, and Molly was a prostitute who acted as her companion and later let her share a flat. Molly is notably the only character in the play who accepts blame for the deaths - while the [[NeverMyFault other more responsible characters refuse to]]. It scandalized conservative Irish audiences that a prostitute was depicted sympathetically.
