* ''MemoirsOfAGeisha'' shows how the girls work their way up in an apprentice-type system. While a ''literal'' example of this trope, as geisha are taught to be seductive and beautiful, they are not taught actual ''sex'', and the instances where they work as prostitutes are unconnected with their training.

* In MikhailAkhmanov and Christopher Nicholas Gilmore's ''Literature/CaptainFrenchOrTheQuestForParadise'', the titular character occasionally mentions the Order of Carnal Pleasures on the planet Dolores Rose. There are no taboos regarding this profession on the planet. Besides, they're much more like Greek hetaeras and {{High Class Call Girl}}s than street walkers, being schooled in dancing, singing, grace, the art of lovemaking, and table setting. The word "prostitute" is frowned upon on that world. In fact, the Order is unionized, so fair wages are guaranteed. French also tells of a device invented on a communist world that measures a person's happiness. He purchases the plans for the device and sells it to the Order, who install it on all the beds in their Happy Houses and use it to charge clients based on the level of pleasure they have received (above the minimum rate, of course). The funny part comes from the fact that French is telling this to Archon Geoffrey, a priest on the planet Murphy currently under the control of a religious group. The Archon is, naturally, horrified to learn of French selling this device to a house of sin and refusing to sell it to him.

* The Wife Bank in ''{{Lexx}}'', at which unwanted girls are abandoned by their parents, raised in boxes by impersonal holograms to be fawning and sexually insatiable, and then given as presents to the sons of upper-class families. (Graduates who "fail to perform their wifely duties" are electronically brainwashed into "love slaves", with an unstable, psychotic, one-track-minded devotion -- and an ''expiry date.'' Yep, CrapsackWorld.)

* Aspasia of Miletos, common law wife of Pericles of Athens headed a school for hetaira according to Plutarch, given that he was writing centuries later and his sources were based on (very) old gossip it may not be true.

* The Court of Night Blooming Flowers in Jacqueline Carey's ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' series is a collection of brothels in a society in which prostitution is considered a sacred calling. Courtesans who are born in or adopted into the Night Court are given instruction in the arts of the salon (music, etiquette, etc.) as well as the arts of the bedchambers. It's an apprenticeship system, with titles and rites of initiation. You are expected to pay off your debt to the House that raised and trained you by working for them (though not necessarily as a prostitute) as part of IndenturedService (since they did spend money on making you a courtesan). There are a few loopholes in it however, that the lead of the first Trilogy works at closing so no one will be abused.
