* This is one of the things that crops up frequently in ''Manga/BitterVirgin''. Pretty much everyone who finds out that Hinako [[spoiler:was raped by her stepfather and had a baby by him]] worries that Daisuke (her love interest) will consider her DefiledForever. Later, when Daisuke's sister comes home pregnant and unwed, most of the town (including the mother) think the sister was shameful and slutty. In both cases, the manga treats the women as sympathetic - Hinako's experience is traumatic and Daisuke never thinks badly of her for it, and his sister is shown as being intelligent and friendly. Meanwhile, the mother comes around to accepting her grandchild and the people engaging in said slut shaming are portrayed as being ignorant.

* A rare male example that isn't PlayedForLaughs occurs in ''BoyMeetsWorld''. A girl goes out with Shawn and spends the entire evening making out with him before blowing off his offer of a second date. The next day, she goes out with Cory and doesn't kiss him once, but asks to see him again, as she wants to take things slow and be serious. When Shawn questions her on this, she bluntly tells him that she might actually consider Cory as a potential boyfriend because he's a "nice boy", whereas Shawn is only good for casual fun and only gets dates from so many girls because he's good-looking and has a reputation for being easy.
* In the second season of ''{{Scandal}}'', Pope's team are investigating a missing girl and as soon as it becomes clear that she was the anonymous blogger outing the sexual prowess (or lack thereof) of various members of the DC power elite, one declares, "Oh boy; let the slut-shaming begin." As far as some news outlets are concerned, this isn't a missing girl, but a missing whore.
* This is what most of the jokes about Laurie Foreman boil down to on ''That70sShow''. If she acts mean or nasty to her brother Eric or anyone else, they'll retort with a joke about how's she a whore. Because apparently her nastiness and her tendencies to sleep around are one and the same.
* ''TheGeorgeLopezShow'': Carmen gets this after a boy tells everyone he had sex with her. The bullying (from the girls) and sexual harassment (from the guys) [[TeensAreMonsters gets so bad]] that her parents have to pull her out and enroll her in a private school.

* In ''Literature/TheSecretLifeOfBees'' Lily's dad won't let her wear skirts that are above the knees. He says he doesn't want Lily to end up [[TeenPregnancy pregnant]] like another girl her age who wears short-skirts did, though Lily thinks it's a coincidence that she ended up pregnant.

* In ''ATreeGrowsInBrooklyn'', Francie witnesses a girl named Joanna being harassed by a bunch of housewives because they believe she has no right to show her illegitimate child in public. They go so far as to throw stones at her, and the narrative explains that they only do this because they're bitter about their own loveless marriages.

'''Note:''' Please refrain from virgin-shaming when adding examples. If people can pursue an amount/range of sexual experience outside the "norm" without being judged, they should also be able to choose abstinence without being labelled a "prude".

* Furthermore, wrestling is a form of media in which women whose only crime is being a {{heel}} (as in less likeable than the {{face}}, for any reason) can loudly and incessantly be chanted at with calls of "SLUT" or "SHE'S A CRACK WHORE". Mostly, the heels will do ''something'' to "earn" slut chants but not always. Wrestling/TommyDreamer merely said [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]] ''looked'' like one in Wrestling/{{ECW}}, for example.

* Wrestling/TrishStratus got showered with chants of "slut" after she turned on Wrestling/ChrisJericho, an admitted arrogant ass but one who genuinely liked and defended her, for Wrestling/{{Christian}}, who physically assaulted her for ''eventually'' returning Jericho's affections and then bragging to Jericho about how she slept with Christian while planning Jericho's downfall. Trish would go on to hypocritically tease Lita for sleeping and getting impregnated by Wrestling/{{Kane}} [[ScarpiaUltimatum in an effort to defend Matt Hardy from him.]]

* ''Film/IronMan'' has ComicBook/PepperPotts use this as revenge in her [[EstablishingCharacterMoment first scene]], when [[ReallyGetsAround Tony's]] latest flame insults her position.

* ''Film/IronMan'' has ComicBook/PepperPotts use this as revenge in her [[EstablishingCharacterMoment first scene]], when [[ReallyGetsAround Tony's]] latest flame insults her position. Considering the fact that she slept with him just after she met him because he was a millionaire and she insulted Potts for not being a fling like her this is understandable.



** This continues in the sequel with the same reporter moving in on Tony's competitor Justin Hammer. Pepper mentions the reporter's "spread" on Tony in the first film. [[HypocriticalHumor ''Tony'', of all people,]] gets in on it too, adding that "She also wrote an article."

** Mrs. Weasley is mentioned as still calling overly flirtatious/promiscuous women "scarlet women" (Hermione finds the term silly, probably showing how Mrs. Weasley is still kind of old-fashioned) and is rather cold towards Hermione when Rita Skeeter paints her as playing with the affections of both Krum and Harry. Given that she sees Harry as a surrogate son though, it's likely her dislike of Hermione was more disapproval over her seemingly hurting Harry. Once Mrs. Weasley learns the truth she feels like a complete idiot.
