* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fanfic ''FanFic/TheStalkingZukoSeries'', [[BiTheWay Jet]] constantly puts down Jin and calls her a shameless hussy for flirting with Zuko. Although this is averted in the fic itself as it's supposed to emphasize Jet's [[UnreliableNarrator irrationality]] and [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]]

Slut shaming is directed against women far more often than against men, not least because of the cultural perception that sex is something women do ''for'' men. Thus, one 19th/20th Century Sino-European DoubleStandard holds that a man who has sex [[AManIsNotAVirgin he's just "being a man"]], whereas a woman who has sex is DefiledForever -- a [[WalkingWasteland font of moral corruption]] who [[TheCorrupter will make the people around her]] lazy ([[SlipperySlopeFallacy and homosexual]]) hedonists. Yet, the men are often free to [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny admire or even have sex with the "sluts", while despising them at the same time]]. An alternative view, extant since the 19th century, is that because men are sometimes seen as [[AllMenArePerverts innately slutty]], calling one a slut doesn't mean much.

SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains is a form of sister trope. See also MadonnaWhoreComplex and MyGirlIsNotASlut. Compare SourPrudes and SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny. Compare AllMenArePerverts, which when applied judgmentally can be considered a society-wide form of SlutShaming leveled against an entire gender.

* In ''Literature/{{Corpies}}'', Bubble Bubble is trademarked as a wholesome good girl, wearing modest dresses and generally acting nice in public. Then she's hit by a scandal. Apparently, years ago, she slept with a movie director, who later turns out to have been already in a relationship with a famous movie star. When the truth comes out, the director blames Bubble Bubble for "seducing" him, possibly using a secret Super ability (despite the fact that her abilities are well-documented). Her reputation destroyed, she nearly gives up, but Titan convinces his agent Lenny to take her on, and Lenny tells that the best (and fun) option she has is to rebrand herself and own what she really did (i.e. have consensual sex with a man, who lied to her about being single). She goes on a talk show, dressed in more normal clothing (halfway between "prudey" and "slutty"), where the host immediately pounces on her for the sex. She counters by point out that, yes, she had sex with a man she thought was single, but that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. When the shocked host tries to recover and bring up her being a role model, she keep pressing him and insisting that the DoubleStandard on sexually-active women needs to go away. While some conservatives still grumble about her behavior, the majority accept her new "brand", resulting in the director once against being the subject of the scandal.

* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'s'' Sarah Walker frequently uses her body to get information, get past guards, and so on. This makes Chuck (entirely smitten) jealous and uncomfortable, and he occasionally attacks her for it. The one episode where Chuck is the one who is required to seduce a female arms dealer, they have to bring in an experienced spy to train him. Meanwhile, Sarah's main concern is that he doesn't get himself killed rather than this trope.

* During feud between Wrestling/ShawnMichaels and the [[Wrestling/DaveyBoySmith British Bulldog]], the later's wife was hitting on Shawn Michaels to make him look bad, which led to Wrestling/JimCornette accusing Shawn Michaels of being a fornicator who was trying to make Diana break her marital vows. So, this wasn't an example on screen but off screen, Stu Hart did not like how it made Diana look, making it this trope retroactively.
