* In the rap song "Slow Down" by Brand Nubian, the speaker is upset that his ex-girlfriend had been stealing from him to pay for her crack habit (and evidently continued to do so after the breakup, because she sold his sneakers to "Woolly Willie," presumably her dealer), and the fact that crackheads and dealers come to his apartment, and the fact that her addiction has radically changed her looks and personality. The thing he is ''most'' upset about and disgusted by, however, is the fact that she has been selling her body to pay for her habit.

He gives her a WhatTheHellHero for it, and takes it upon himself to warn other men about her.

* Jim Jefferies says that this double standard isn't as unfair as it sounds, due to women on average being far more sexually selective than men, [[AllMenArePerverts who will basically screw anything with a hole and a heartbeat]]. Therefore a man sleeping with a lot of women is a much greater accomplishment than the other way around, because he actually had to put in some amount of effort. In his words:
-->Itís fuckiní easy to be a slut. Itís fuckiní hard to be a stud. To be a stud you have to be witty, charming, be well-dressed, have nice shoes, and a fake job. To be a slut you just have to be ''there''. There are fat, ugly sluts out there. There are no fat, ugly studs.

* Inverted with glee in ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'': Hank Rearden is successfully blackmailed over his extramarital affair with Dagny Taggart by Dr. Ferris, who says that the shame of their affair being made public would be ''hers'', not his. However, when the same information is used to blackmail Dagny, she proudly confesses to having slept with Rearden. It's probably a case of AuthorOnBoard as Ayn Rand was famous for her views on total sexual liberation and free love. (Something forgotten by many of her modern fans...)

* RoseMcGowan invoked this trope when it came to her character Paige on ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' specifically in season 5. Paige was often seen with a different guy every episode, including one that only appeared in a brief raunchy scene on the couch with her. She claims to have gone to the writers and said "Paige isn't a ho". All of Paige's love interests from then on are fairly long term.

** The subject of sexuality is one of many examples of the novel's MoralDissonance. Earlier, Hank flies into a homicidal rage over Dagny's relationship with Francisco; later, he [[spoiler: finds out she's leaving him for John Galt]] and is perfectly sanguine about it. Rand applauds Dagny and Hank's extramarital affair, but still considers "whore" to be a [[SlutShaming terrible insult]]. (Come to think of it, the knee-jerk aversion to prostitution also conflicts with Rand's belief that capitalism is the best system for ''everything''...)

* In an episode of ''TheClevelandShow'', the hypocrisy of this trope was the main plot point. While Cleveland didn't want to have his step-daughter to have sex at all, he encouraged his son to get rid of his virignitiy ''as soon as possible with anyone''. He even becomes extremely embarassed and angry when his son makes an oath of abstinence in public.
* An episode of ''AmericanDad'' reveals that nearly all married women in Langley Falls have cheated on her husband at least once. Francine is faithful to Stan, although he is distraught to learn that she has had hundreds of sexual partners before she met him (thought he admits that he knew she was a wild girl when they met). This causes problems in their marriage, so Francine files for divorce in order to allow him to sleep with another woman before they re-marry. She later changes her mind... but he goes through with it (after marrying the other woman first and then divorcing her on the same day).

* This comes up a fair amount for ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'', such as when Jerry watches [[PercyJackson Annabeth]] fight in the coliseum (she isn't his girlfriend- or even Percy's- though).

* Test audiences of ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' all thought that "The wrong girl died", not because Diz was a good friend and comrade in arms to Rico while Carmen was a haughty career-driven ice maiden who never loved him, but Carmen deserved to die because she slept with another man. Never mind that Rico sleeps with another woman even though he thinks he still loves Carmen; death to the woman who dares fall in love with someone other than [[TheHero the leading man]].



* Bollywood movie - Averted in ''Bollywood/MyNameIsKhan''. The heroine is divorced, and has a son who plays a major part in driving the plot.
* Bollywood movie - Averted in ''Guzaarish''. The main character's caretaker is separated from an abusive husband. She divorces her husband in the movie and in the last scene marries the main character and fulfills his wish of euthanasia the day after the marriage. No hanky-panky here, because the main character is unable to have sex.

* Donald feels very strongly about this in ''Film/ShanghaiExpress''. Five years ago, in the backstory, [[NoodleIncident some stunt]] his girlfriend Madeline pulled to make him jealous instead caused him to dump her. He is sickened to find out that after he dumped her, she's been working as a HighClassCallGirl for the last five years under the professional name Shanghai Lily. And when he learns that Madeline/Lily just offered herself to the bandit chief that's holding them both hostage, he angrily rejects her. He doesn't know that she did it to keep the bandit chief from putting his eyes out.
