* Played with a couple of times in Kate Beaton's 'Webcomic/HarkAVagrant' but most notably [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=391 here]] where the "Body Police" arrest the recently deflowered girl because there's only room for Madonnas and Whores[[note]]And ugly hags of course. And basic bitches[[/note]]

* The Flemish folk singer Zjef Vanuytsel has the song "Hop Marlene", telling about how the eponymous girl is a stripper, regarded by both men (in admiring terms) and women (in disapproving terms) as the Whore - until a King witnesses her dancing and decides to marry her, making her the Madonna for her subjects.

* A variant in ''{{Psychonauts}}:'' when [[TheStoic Sasha Nein]] was a child he wanted to know more about his MissingMom, but his dad was reluctant to discuss her. Eventually Sasha started reading his dad's mind, and got some happy images of her as an angel in Heaven--but, when he dug too deep, also got some more...[[DirtyMindReading personal]] memories of her. It's implied this made the father-son relationship a bit awkward, and inspired Sasha to leave home as soon as possible.

** In the ''FreddyGotFingered'' review, a crossover with [[BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]], he suggests that Gord's LoveInterest is the perfect synthesis of Madonna and Whore: she's obsessed with phallic objects and blowjobs, but they never have any other kind of sex, and being a [[DisabledLoveInterest disabled]] nurse plays her as being nurturing but also needing to be nurtured herself.

* Often played straight when it comes to characters. While most women in wrestling tend to be sexualised in some way, a face will often be a GirlNextDoor type and sexuality will tend to be downplayed. A seductress character will usually be a heel. Wrestling/EveTorres, Wrestling/{{Lita}}, Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon and Wrestling/TrishStratus are examples, though Jackie Gayda is one who was a baby face, at points, such as times she flashed La Resistance and Wrestling/{{Test}}, distracting them long enough for Wrestling/{{Rico| Constantino}} and or [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Charlie Haas]] to gain the upper hand. In Test's case it was in retaliation [[WouldHitAGirl to him stomping on her hand]].

* On the inversion end, there's also Wrestling/{{Ivory}} from Right 2 Censor, as well as ODB and Wrestling/{{Jac|queline}}kie Moore's "cleaning up the Knockout division" gimmick from when they both returned to TNA and feuded with Wrestling/VelvetSky. Looking through history, face women wrestlers are usually actually in the middle--somewhat sexualized but still implied to be women of valor and virtue--whereas women played to either extreme have made for great heels in the past. Velvet Sky is a great defiance of this trope in her own right. As a heel she was definitely a Whore. However as a face she was still MsFanservice and had no problem showing off her body - she just happened to be presented as heroic as well. * Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} and Wrestling/{{WSU}} during their time as the "main two" women's promotions of the USA. The former was the offspring of the "No Bra and Panties" IWA Mid-South's women's division and less likely to feature [[GarbageWrestler death matches]] that its "parent". Wrestling Superstars Uncensored on the other hand had a pimp as their heavyweight champion and the decision to switch to all women's shows didn't stop them from being the metaphorical whores.
