'''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''': Bob has two women he likes; Alice, TheIngenue, and Betty, 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 Betty live in a society where they're taught to save sex for marriage, so the moral Alice does so while the immoral Betty has sex with other boys.
* '''Inverted''':
** Betty is a HookerWithAHeartOfGold, while Alice is a {{Sour Prude|s}} who [[StrawFeminist always condemns men]] [[AllMenArePerverts only wanting to have sex]].
** The difference between the two women are 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 Betty.
** Conversely, 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 blatantly meaner than Betty, 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 Betty does show PetTheDog moments, especially towards Bob.
* '''Averted''': Neither Alice's nor Betty'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 have kids with and the women you fuck.
* '''Invoked''': Bob's parents teach him how to find the perfect wife.
* '''Exploited''': Bob is dating Betty, 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.
* '''Defied''': After a series of critical thinking, Bob decides to see each girl as more than whether they're virgins.
* '''Discussed''': "Betty 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 Betty 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 Betty 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) Betty, he blames Betty for his problems, Alice is jealous of Betty, and (ironically) Alice and Bob's home life is in more danger than it likely would have been if he had just chosen Betty in the first place. The marriage becomes [[AwfulWeddedLife troubled]], and might just end altogether depending on [[ValuesDissonance the setting]].
** Alice and Bob are CuteButPsycho. Betty is an {{All Loving Hero}}ine. While Alice and Bob become more and more sociopathic {{Stepford Smiler}}s who want to live the perfect, suitable suburban life, Betty is a healthy, generous, and romantic person. She ends up finding someone who loves her and thinks that she is important for what she is inside, has the epitome of a beautiful love and family life, and Bob and Alice's children end up asking her help, because they do not want to repeat the life 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]]. Betty 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''': SexIsGood; it's just that Alice wants to save it till marriage herself, while Betty got 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 Alice, Bob and Betty.
** For all her good deeds, [[EntitledToHaveYou Alice expected Bob to choose her]], but he picked Betty 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 Betty instead.
