* Creator/JohnSteinbeck based the character of Dora from Literature/CanneryRow on a Madam named Flora Woods who operated the Lone Star Café on what is now called Cannery Row in Monterey, California. By all accounts, she was a generous woman who cared deeply for her girls and gave large sums of money and food to charity.

* A literal Miss Kitty (Katharina "Kitty" Schmidt) operated a luxurious brothel in WorldWarII Berlin, under the guise of the SD (SS's counterespionage department). She had to submit to them, after SS-Brigadeführer [[TheSpymaster Walther Schellenberg]] himself had shown her clearly she had no other choice, charging her with money laundering and trafficking, using forged passports, other crimes linked to money laundering and forgery... and [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold helping Jews to escape Germany]], all of which could mean either a long prison term in a concentration camp or a summary execution at the hands of the SS. The entire house had been littered with state of the art surveillance electronics, and a large percent of the girls trained to register the slightest word which could mean a valuable secret. Despite prostitution being more or less legal in Germany and herself an agent of the state security, her house had always been more or less illegal, with no advertising and entrance via a password, to keep it exclusive and protect the VIP clients (nearly always married) from unfriendly eyes. Count Ciano while in Berlin [[CrazyPrepared used to go ostensibly to a cinema and sneak from the theater after the lights were off]], to avoid anyone who might have snitched him to his all-powerful father-in-law, [[UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini Mussolini]].

The Miss Kitty is restricted in time and setting. She will be almost exclusively found either in the United States or Canada. In the US, she'll be found between 1860 (the start of the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar) and 1911 (the year the Everleigh Club in Chicago was closed). In Canada she'll usually be in shows set in Alberta or the North (especially the Klondike), and can show up at a much later date than in the US -- as late as the mid-1950s for shows set in the Territories. She can also be found in SpeculativeFiction that uses [[SpaceWestern a setting that is analogous]]. TheWildWest is her natural habitat, but she can often be found in urban red-light districts of the period. The Miss Kitty does not necessarily have to be female, although the nurturing aspects of a Miss Kitty are more of a female trait.

What is the fate of a [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Soiled Dove]] as she grows older? It all depends on how much she's been soiled and who was documenting the events. In early versions of the RomanceNovel, any soiling was [[SexIsEvil considered an impurity]] [[DefiledForever that could not be erased]], so RedemptionEqualsDeath was a common ending to the story, usually with the Soiled Dove [[DrugsAreBad ending up addicted to alcohol and/or opiates]] and DyingAlone in some gutter. In RealLife, though, many a Soiled Dove ended up marrying and leaving what was then called the Sporting Life. This was especially true in TheWildWest, where women were at a premium. Some ended up becoming a DeterminedHomesteadersWife. Their former lives were generally not [[MadonnaWhoreComplex held against them]], and the act of marriage bestowed social respectability on them.
