** The Greek goddess Aphrodite was intended to be this as the goddess of love and beauty, and naturally, the literal personification of Fanservice. However, she suffers heavily from TheWorfEffect. Aphrodite's [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Roman counterpart]] Venus was the personification of beauty, and is often depicted as naked in artwork, including Sandro Botticelli's famous [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/14/Birth_of_Venus_Botticelli.jpg/380px-Birth_of_Venus_Botticelli.jpg "Birth of Venus"]].
** Atalanta of Myth/GreekMythology is a sexy huntress who took an oath of virginity and refused to marry. Neither of these vows lasted, with many myths pointing out she had two sons from two different relationships and marrying the man who beat her in a foot race. There is even an ancient piece of artwork depicting her in the Ancient Greek equivalent of a bikini.
** Helen of Troy, WorldsMostBeautifulWoman. Known idiomatically as "The face that launched a thousand ships"; there was a [[UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar war]] fought over her, afterall.
** The [[FairySexy nymphs]] were a whole ''[[OneGenderRace race]]'' made of this trope. They were depicted as eternally youthful and nubile maidens who completely embraced their [[GoodBadGirl sexuality]] in contrast to [[ProperLady chaste wives and daughters]] of civilized society. There is a good reason why many heroes took them as wives and many gods also had them as occasional lovers, and where the word "nymphomaniac" originated from.

The NipplesAndDimed trope is also played straight in the song, a whole song devoted to sex and romance, it has no qualms about mentioning breasts when it comes to describing a virtuous relationship between a married couple.

* Adam and Eve are the only characters from Literature/TheBible which were depicted nude or almost-nude in art even during the most prude periods of history, because even the most prudish Christians can deny neither their importance in Christian canon nor the importance of nudity for their characterization.

She's described in most myths as a blue-eyed blonde with a [[FetishFuel voluptuous body]] and [[BoobsOfSteel ample bosom]]. She also ReallyGetsAround, apparently.

** Although in Hebrew folklore and an alternate reading of the bible story, Eve was only God's second choice. His first created wife for Adam, Lilith, had too much of a mind of her own and was too upfront sexual. God is said to have reassigned her to Satan as the UrExample succubus, wiped Adam's mind clean with BrainBleach, and had a think as to what he could do with a spare rib. lilith is still around as a demoness of untramelled sexuality.
