**Early on, after Sloan has been there for a while, Dr. Bailey gathers him and all of the female doctors and nurses, points to Sloan, and says, "This man is a whore!" She then explains why the women shouldn't expect more from him than they're getting. (Imagine that one gender-swapped.)

* In Literature/SeedsOfYesterday, the final book in the Creator/VCAndrews Literature/DollangangerSeries, this frequently happens to Cindy (the youngest and adopted child of Catherine, the protagonist) at the hands of her older brother Bart--to the point of nearly constant verbal, emotional, and occasional physical abuse--and her mother. What's especially bad about this is that while Cindy ''is'' promiscuous, she isn't related to, cheating on, nor cheating with any of the boys she sleeps with, unlike those condemning her--Cathy has been involved in BrotherSisterIncest for years, while Bart is currently having an affair with his brother's wife, who isn't the first married woman he's has dalliances with.

** Even happens to Dr. Quinn herself. When her foster children's natural father comes to town to fight her for custody, he puts a spin on her romantic entanglements by pointing out that within one calendar year, she was engaged to three different men (only one of which, to Sully, was legitimate. The first being a misunderstanding from her brief courtship with the Reverend, and the other being the result of her presumed-dead fiance still being alive.

* ''Series/GeneralHospital'': Betty Karen does this to Veronica Brenda, who finally stands up for herself and points out that she has only slept with ''one'' guy, then turns it around and points out that Karen is the one who spent several months flitting between two different guys (the one of whom she finally dumped for good also doing this to her).
* In the first sries of ''Series/TheFall'', several of her fellow officers try to shame SIO Gibson about her one night stand with a married detective. She shuts them both down, hard. She didn't know he was married and feels no shame whatever about a one night stand.

* In ''Literature/BlazeOrLoveInTheTimeOfSupervillains'', Blaze joins her friends in ridiculing Catherine Wiggan, a girl legendary for her sexual exploits in the school. Later, a topless photo of Blaze gets released onto the internet and she has to endure her own gauntlet. It's portrayed in horrid, but realistic, detail.

* Affects most of the female characters in ''Literature/TheGolemAndTheJinni''. Anna has to hide her premarital pregnancy. Sophia has to hide her fling with the jinni, and [[spoiler:her engagement is eventually broken because of the rumors]]. The golem marries a human who doesn't know what she is, and when they engage in "marital duties", it's all good for him...but the one time it starts stimulating her in a pleasurable way and she moves to pursue that, he thinks it's "immodest" and unbecoming of a wife. Because [[TheEmpath she can sense his desires]], she shuts the feeling down.

** Averted in her later songs however, which Taylor herself has attributed to simply growing up. ''So'' averted, in fact, that she now has a single, "Wildest Dreams," that's pretty obviously about the joys of having a one-night stand.

* On the August 8th edition of Sunday Night Heat, Wrestling/{{Ivory}} attacked [[Wrestling/TerriPoch Tori]] from behind and wrote "Slut" on her back as punishment for Tori having previously posed in body body paint instead of clothing. Trish Stratus would later imitate this on Monday Night Raw, spray painting "Slut" on Christy Hemme's back after Christy posed for Playboy magazine.

* Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon was frequently referred to as a slut but only after she turned on her father and sided with Wrestling/TripleH (with whom Wrestling/{{Vince|McMahon}} had been feuding) and took control of his company. She never did anything remotely whorish though so it's more of a case of fans not knowing what other insult to chant at her ("Gold Digger" and "Manipulator" not exactly being easy for wrestling crowds to chant).[[note]]Also, there's the fact that "slut" and "gold digger" would be more applicable to Triple H, as Stephanie is the daughter of Wrestling/{{WWE}} Chairman [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]] and stands to inherit the company. Triple H's original [[TheGimmick gimmick]] was an elitist, BlueBlood snob who was presumably very wealthy as well. After he formed [[Wrestling/DGenerationX DeGeneration X]] with Wrestling/ShawnMichaels, Wrestling/{{Chyna}} and [[Wrestling/RickRude "Ravishing" Rick Rude]], he abandoned the [[RichBitch rich bastard]] gimmick, though it was never explained whether he still had the money.[[/note]]
