* ''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.

* 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.

A pattern of thought that divides female-humanity into two mutually exclusive categories: Madonnas and Whores. The virtuous Madonna figure, possessing and protecting social virtue [[AllWomenArePrudes (and deploring sexuality)]] is an object of worship and everything that all females should aspire to be. However, sex is not part of this. [[InsaneTrollLogic Anyone who fails to live up to the Madonna standard is a Whore]] [[AllWomenAreLustful driven exclusively by sexual desire and (therefore) lacking in morality and humanity.]] An active sex life makes one a Whore… unless one is married, and sometimes not even then. The Madonna-Whore complex is a notable contrast to the TheThreeFacesOfEve as it ignores the Wife archetype (one who is sexually active but morally good/"pure") and creates a FalseDichotomy between the Child and Seductress. That said, many Madonnas ''are'' wives, though they are more often mothers or sisters, or other females with close emotional ties to whomever considers them a Madonna.
