* Zig-zagged in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' series. Justified in that the d'Angeline Servants of Naamah are Church-affiliated {{High Class Call Girl}}s and boys in a country with "Love As Thou Wilt" as its main creed. However, the fact that they're {{Indentured|Servitude}} to brothels as children and obligated to {{work off the debt}}), which can be nigh-impossible if they fall short of the brothel's standards of beauty, is disturbing, and Phedre campaigns against the element of debt bondage in later books.

Added DiffLines:

In ''Film/GuiltyOfRomance'', this trope is an opinion of the character Mitsuko, a prostitute who thinks that by demanding money for sexual intercourse a woman recognizes the value of her body.

* Dorothy Haze from ''VisualNovel/{{VA11HALLA}}''. She's a [[RobotGirl Lilim]] prostitute with an earnest enjoyment of her work and [[{{lolicon}} the body of a 7-10-year-old]] (Lilim are built young but can earn a free upgrade to an older body after passing three 'maturity tests.' Dorothy never opt-in for the upgrade.) As you can guess, this gives Dorothy a bit of an advantage, in her line of work.

* The ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' series. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since they have "Love As Thou Wilt" as their main religious creed. The fact the prostitutes are half priests and priestesses to Namaah also helps there. Nonetheless, the fact that they're [[IndenturedServitude indentured]] to brothels as children (then having to {{work off the debt}}) is disturbing.

# [[DrugsAreBad No drug problems which might be seen as making the situation degrading.]] The prostitute isn't doing it to support a habit of cocaine or a similar hard drug, and [[HookersAndBlow it's probably best if there's no drug use by the client either]].



* ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'': To the point where Alan's attempts at being respectful to a hooker was a joke.

# [[MyGirlIsNotASlut The social stigma attached to prostitution]] is very mild, if it exists at all. In many cases, the sex trade is considered no worse than any other service job. Indeed, it might even be ''sanctioned'' by that society. [[note]] (For example, a society in which {{Arranged Marriage}}s are the norm and seeking out sex elsewhere is more-or-less accepted. Or a society in which prostitution is an aspect of the society's religion, as with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_prostitution temple prostitutes]], who were usually also priests/priestesses.) Or one in which boys or girls are given ProfessionalSexEd when they are considered marriageable adults, or some other form of SexAsRiteOfPassage.[[/note]] If and when s/he decides to [[INeedAnIndexByMonday pursue a different career path]], their sex work won't be [[NeverLiveItDown held against them]]. Nor does it hinder their chances of getting into real long-term relationships or marriages, and no one is considered DefiledForever by having been in this career path. Sex workers are never harassed by police or the MoralGuardians. This problem especually, is what have lead some countries to ban the act of paying for sex, but not prostitution. UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} was the first country to do so in 1999, followed by UsefulNotes/{{Iceland}} and UsefulNotes/{{Norway}} in 2011, UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland in 2014 and UsefulNotes/{{France}} in 2016.
