* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': {{Discussed}} in Vamp's narration in [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/content-menu/stories/104-diamonds-are-a-vamp-s-best-friend-part-1 Diamonds Are a Vamp's Best Friend (Part 1)]], when Vamp's mom is called a whore by [[spoiler:her legal father]]:
--> "Shut yer filthy mouth, ya miserable WHORE!" O'Brien roared. In case you haven't heard of it, the Irish are notorious for falling into that trap of dividing women up into 'Saints' and 'Whores'; and any woman with a sex drive is a whore by those standards.

** Also subverted with Makoto and Minako: both have a tendence to chase boys (especially the latter in the manga), with Minako sometimes wearing somewhat revealing clothes, yet they're superhero (especially Minako, who has a rather pronounced ChronicHeroSyndrome).

* Embodied in ''Series/EmeraldCity'' by the contrast between Glinda and West. While West runs a brothel and spends her time having sex and getting high on opium, Glinda runs an order of virginal and celibate quasi-nuns devoted to the pursuit of knowledge. Lampshaded in "Science and Magic" by Tip when she's asked to choice between going with Glinda and going with West.

* ''Literature/TheGame'' [[note]]Not to be confused with the 1997 Michael Douglas movie of the [[NamesTheSame same name]][[/note]] (And "Pick Up Artist" philosophy in general) names and discusses this trope extensively - according to its theories, [[AllWomenAreLustful all]] women [[MyGirlIsASlut are]] "Whores" that only put on a "Madonna" facade because that's societally expected of them.

Compare SlutShaming, SourPrudes, LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine, BettyAndVeronica, MyGirlIsNotASlut, SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains, GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex. Sometimes may be seen as a sign of BlackAndWhiteInsanity and/or MommyIssues. Closely related to MamasBabyPapasMaybe and AltarDiplomacy, as demonizing female sexuality is one way of ensuring political marriages only produce legitimate heirs.
