[[AliceAndBob Alice (or sometimes Bob)]] is trying a bit too hard to make herself look good at the expense of other women (and maybe men), claiming superiority on the ground that she doesn't have as much sex as they do, doesn't dress as sexily as they do, or something like that. Accusing other women (or sometimes men) of being "skanks", "sluts", "cheap" and whatnot.

Often a tragic character portrayed as being overly prudish as a kind of SourGrapes: "[[CelibateHero I deny myself my sexuality]], [[JerkassHasAPoint so why don't these people do the same thing?]]". Thus "Sour Prudes". For [[TookALevelInJerkass extra irony]], Alice might be pulling the EntitledToHaveYou card, based on being such a good girl. This can be especially tragic if she lives in a society where women are economically dependent on men, making her come across as justified -- or at least as a TroubledSympatheticBigot who is only trying to survive in NoWomansLand. In some cases, this might go hand in hand with MaritalRapeLicense. For example, let's say that Alice is outraged at Charlene for saying that oral sex is okay -- and that the real reason for this outrage is that Alice fears that Charlene's opinion may encourage Alice's husband Bob to try to pressure Alice into having oral sex.

''If'' this Alice has taken a vow of chastity (and she usually hasn't), she might ''also'' be a StrawmanPolitical of the conservative kind. Note that a character who chose to be chaste -- without being a {{Jerkass}} about it -- is ''not'' this trope. If a character is accused of being this trope by another character, without being portrayed as such by the narrative, it counts as "[[PlayingWithATrope invoked]]" and does not go on character sheet pages.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Yozora from ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'' will assert her superiority over [[SitcomArchnemesis Sena]] by railing at any chance against her immoral behaviour (shamelessly shaking down her admirers and playing {{Eroge}} and {{Dating Sim}}s, mostly). Resident LovableSexManiac Rika actually uses this against Yozora whenever [[InsultBackfire she tries]] to pull the same attitude on her.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* ''ComicBook/BitchyBitch'' invoke this quite often. Her accusations is never portrayed as justified. Unlike her [[ComicBook/BitchyButch lesbian counterpart]], she is not portrayed as [[{{Hypocrite}} being a prude herself]].
* ''ComicBook/BitchyButch'' never seem to quit whining about supposedly prudish women, mostly because she's frustrated that they won't leave their boyfriends and start having sex with ''her'' instead. Ironically, it's hinted that Butchy herself has been quite the Sour Prude to her previous girlfriends (only hinted, since the stories are all told from [[UnreliableNarrator her biased perspective]] where [[NeverMyFault everything was always their fault and never hers]]) .
* ''WhateverLoveMeans'' portrays this mindset as an effect of patriarchal repression: Everyone want to have some control, and having been denied any other way to power a woman's only remaining option is trying to control her own sexuality and the sexuality of others. Also, women who are not sexually repressed becomes a very real threat when your sexuality is the only thing you have to bargain with: Like any other market, it's a matter of supply and demand, and minimizing supply is their only way of increasing her market value.
* ''PiranhaClub'' has a male example with [[ThisLoserIsYou the protagonist]] Ernie Floyd trying a bit too hard to convince his girlfriend's father that he doesn't pose a threat to the old man's daughter.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* In ''Film/EasyA'', the main antagonists have this mindset and bring it down hard on our poor protagonist.
* In ''TheFastAndTheFurious'', Dom's girlfriend Letty chases off two girls hitting on Dom at the first race.
--> '''Letty''': I smell ''[sniffs]'' skanks. Why don't you ladies pack it up before I leave tread marks on you faces?
** Bonus points for not looking very wholesome herself. Being a story focused on {{Bromance}}, this scene mostly serve to establish women as something annoying in the background.
* In ''{{Attenberg}}'', it is established that Bella is more sexually experienced and that Marina feels inadequate. And then hardly a conversation goes by without Marina calling Bella "whore", "stupid", or (depending on translation) either "wild animal" or "predator".
** Of course, this doesn't stop Marina from using Bella for advice, kissing practice, and even lending her out to her dying father (who had *not* asked his daughter to provide him with women) for a one-night stand.
* In ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}'', the women who hate [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Dallas]] are given no characterization or social context beyond being hateful out of pure prudishness. No hint of them feeling fear or humiliation that their husbands may be unfaithful to them and that they are at too much of a social disadvantage to dare blaming it on ''them''.
* A lot of LifetimeMoviesOfTheWeek tends to unintentionally veer into this territory, with characters who are strait-laced best friends to their promiscuous female friend. Almost the flip side to ToxicFriendInfluence.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* ''ATreeGrowsInBrooklyn'' is pretty heavy on the "women treat each other worse than men treat women" idea, with the obvious example being the neighborhood women who harass and eventually stone a girl who has a baby out of wedlock. The narration explains how miserable these women's marriages are.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Both Ziva and Kate could be prudish toward Tony in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' (not that it's all that hard to be prudish toward Tony).
** Caitlin Todd was somewhat prudish towards him, despite a wild past, but Ziva David averts this trope on a regular basis. She's not a prude to him, she's just not sailing on that particular ship, so far as I know.
* Angela in ''Series/{{The Office}}''. [[spoiler: She also had an affair with [[{{FanDisservice}} Dwight]] while engaged to [[{{DoggedNiceGuy}} Andy]], making her a full-fledged StrawHypocrite]]
* Chance from ''NoahsArc'' has moments of this, often to Eddie's dismay.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* In ''WebComic/SabrinaOnline'', Zig-Zag sometimes (jokingly, one should hope) calls Sabrina a prude because she refuses to become a porn star and because she can sometimes get embarrassed.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Inverted in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', where Lois moralizes over teenage abstinence. Her argument is not that teenagers should be empowered to make their own choices; instead, she preaches that abstaining from sex is "just wrong". In other words, the show inverts the "SexIsEvil" stance for laughs. The message of the episode was a whole was criticizing abstinence-only education that uses scare tactics. At the end of the show, Lois did give a nice speech where she told the students that they shouldn't have sex until they're ready. And if/when they do, to please 'use a condom'.
