'''Basic Trope''': [[ThereAreTwoKindsOfPeopleInTheWorld There are two kinds of women]]; Respectable Women who don't have sex (marriageable) and Whores who do have sex (not marriageable).
* '''Straight''': [[BettyAndVeronica Bob has two women he likes]]; Alice, TheIngenue, and Carol, TheVamp.
* '''Exaggerated''': Women are literally divided into a caste system in which they can either be married or prostitutes.
* '''Downplayed''':
** Bob has a relationship with Alice that ''does'' include sex, but monogamously and with a condom; or only after marriage and only for procreation.
** Bob wants a girl who's over the party scene, [[{{Kuudere}} or never was into it]] [[{{Dandere}} in the first place]], feeling that a HardDrinkingPartyGirl who ReallyGetsAround is too immature with whom to settle down, or won't be a good role model to any children they might have.
* '''Justified''': Bob, Alice and Carol live in a society where they're taught to save sex for marriage, so the “moral” Alice does so while the “immoral” Carol has sex with other boys.
* '''Inverted''':
** Carol is a HookerWithAHeartOfGold, while Alice is a {{Sour Prude|s}} who [[StrawFeminist always condemns men]] [[AllMenArePerverts for wanting to have sex]].
** The difference between the two women is either their morality or their chastity, but not both.
* '''Gender Inverted''': Alice has two men she likes; Bob, the shy NiceGuy and Charles, TheCasanova.
* '''Subverted''': Bob has a third woman he has interest in. She's Charlie, the HookerWithAHeartOfGold.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Turns out she is a BitchInSheepsClothing, making her a bad whore like Carol.
** It turns out that Charlie was actually [[SexSlave forced into prostitution]]. Once she escapes from her captors she vows not to have sex again until she's married, making her a Madonna like Alice.
* '''Parodied''': Alice is [[SourPrudes blatantly meaner]] than Carol, but Bob, in his twisted logic, thinks Alice is good since she is a virgin.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice's [[PureIsNotGood purity isn't portrayed as a good thing]], while Carol does show PetTheDog moments, especially towards Bob.
* '''Averted''': Neither Alice's nor Carol’s morals are connected to their sexuality.
* '''Enforced''':
** MyGirlIsNotASlut.
** ValuesDissonance.
* '''Lampshaded''':
-->'''Bob''': There are two kinds of women in the world: the women you marry and [[InsaneTrollLogic have kids with and the women you fuck.]]
* '''Invoked''': Bob's parents teach him how to find the perfect wife.
* '''Exploited''':
** Bob is dating Carol, but [[ParentalMarriageVeto his family doesn't approve]]; [[AnimeInLaws they introduce him to]] Alice, the daughter of one of their friends from church and all the while hinting what a 'NiceGirl' she is.
** Alice uses this to try to [[RelationshipSabotage manipulate Bob into breaking up with Carol and choosing her instead.]]
* '''Defied''': After some thought, Bob decides to see each girl as more than whether they're virgins.
* '''Discussed''': "Carol is fun and sexy, but would you really want ''her'' to be the mother of ''your'' kids?"
* '''Conversed''': "There ''is'' more to a woman than her sexuality; get to know ''her'', and ''then'' decide whether to commit or not."
* '''Implied''': They are characters in a kids show, so the writers keep it family friendly and avoid naming sex directly. Instead, Bob does not want to date Carol because "she's had too many boyfriends".
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Bob chooses Alice, the "good" girl, but she doesn't have a heck of a lot in common with him; he chooses her on the basis that "she'll make a good wife and mother." Eventually, Bob becomes bored with Alice, and finds himself tempted by Carol and her ilk. Alice is hurt because Bob is losing interest in her and neglecting her, and Bob is hurt because he now feels like it was a big mistake to marry Alice, he feels guilty for [[YourCheatingHeart cheating with]] (or just lusting after) Carol and blames her for his problems, Alice is jealous of Carol, and ironically, Alice and Bob's home life is in more danger than it likely would have been if he had just chosen Carol in the first place. The marriage becomes [[AwfulWeddedLife troubled]], and might just end altogether depending on [[ValuesDissonance the setting]].
** Alice is CuteAndPsycho. Carol is an {{All Loving Hero}}ine. While Alice becomes more and more unhinged and [[DomesticAbuse abusive]], and Bob stays with her because they both want to live the perfect, suitable suburban life, Carol is a healthy, generous, and romantic person. She ends up finding someone who loves her and thinks that she is wonderful for who she is inside, and they have the epitome of a beautiful love and family life. Debbie and Emma, Alice and Bob’s children, end up asking for her help, because they do not want to repeat the mistakes of their parents.
** Alice has trouble reconciling with this worldview. The "ideal" place for her to be is as a Madonna, which is generally held as the more respectable of the two, but comes with tight restrictions that make her life miserable, that will instantly shunt her into the "whore" category [[CantGetAwayWithNothing if she breaks them even once]]. Carol gets caught on the other end of this, being a "whore" who is seen as unworthy of respect and generally looked down upon even as she's lusted after, and try as she might, she can't do much about people seeing her as DefiledForever. Both find their positions belittling and dehumanising, if for different reasons.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Alice divorces Bob and marries Charlie, who thinks like she does, and they become HappilyMarried.
** Debbie winds up a prude like Alice and finds someone she loves, while Emma emulates Carol’s lifestyle and fails to find a meaningful relationship.
** Alice just wants to save sex till marriage, while Betty gets into trouble because her uncontrolled sex life gave her [=STDs=], unwanted pregnancies, etc.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Alice may be a nice girl, but she's a total {{Gonk}}.
* '''Played For Drama''':
** LoveTriangle between [[BettyAndVeronica Alice, Bob and Carol.]]
** [[DoggedNiceGuy For all her good deeds]], [[EntitledToHaveYou Alice expected Bob to choose her]], but he picked Carol instead. She didn't take it well and [[IfICantHaveYou snapped]].
** Bob has MommyIssues and is a DoggedNiceGuy who chooses Alice because "she'd make a good wife," but thinks she's too "vanilla" for his tastes, and finds himself wooing Carol instead.
