The trope was so pervasive in Western Canada in the post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarI era that the phrasing "Miss Firstname" was (and to some extent, still is) used only to refer to madams and whores. This naturally surprises visitors from the southern US, for whom this phrasing is a respectable way for children to refer to adult women. Hilarity can ensue.

* Bart discovers and eventually ends up working for one of these women on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons.'' Even though the show is set in modern America, the matron of the house plays this trope completely straight and makes [[MoralGuardians Marge]] look foolish by comparison. This episode led to the CrowningMusicOfAwesome -- "We put the * Spring* in Springfield."

* 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]].

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 [[GenderRarityValue 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.

The [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]] is Miss Kitty, the proprietor of the Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City in ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}''. Should not be confused with [[BestKnownForTheFanservice the burlesque dancer]] in Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective or former Wrestling/{{WWE}} Diva Wrestling/StacyCarter, who used this name before changing it to The Kat.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/AdamRuinsEverything'', Adam debunks the notion that the founding of the Wild West was all the doing of gritty white male cowboys. He meets up with a saloon owner named Pearl, and an actual historian, who explain that the towns on the Frontier were basically work camps, with no women. When women ''did'' come to the West, some of them found that there was a market for sex (and not many other options open to women)...and that it was a very lucrative one. The prostitutes of the Old West used their newfound wealth and power to transform those settlements from work camps to cities with schools, hospitals, etc. The gritty white male cowboy Adam was talking to is shocked and appalled.
