->''"I know about these girls. With their low marks and high hemlines!"''
-->-- '''Grace "97%" Makutsi''', ''Literature/TheNo1LadiesDetectiveAgency''

Not the same as the SassySecretary (although there is some overlap, especially in hard-boiled detective stories), this is a PA/Secretary etc. who is [[HelloNurse rather a sexpot]]. You may add office-related DoubleEntendre as you wish (heh heh, "dictation"). A traditional gag is for her horny boss to spend the workday figuratively or literally chasing her around his desk.

DistaffCounterpart to the RightHandHottie.

See also HotLibrarian and OfficeLady. Due to the interpersonal nature of the role, they may be TheFace of their group. Compare GirlFriday.



* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qqHmkrjafQ&feature=player_embedded This ad]] for "6 Hour Power" energy drink, that starts with a long MaleGaze shot up the legs of a ridiculously gorgeous secretary. She then appears to give her boss a blowjob right in his office.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'', [[spoiler: Namie]] becomes [[spoiler: Izaya]]'s SassySecretary early on in the series. She's also damn ''[[HelloNurse fine]]''.
* Kalifa, Iceberg's secretary in ''Manga/OnePiece''. [[spoiler:It turns out she's actually part of a group of undercover assassins who've been working to get close to him and steal some important documents for five years, whereafter she is still sexy but not, in fact, a secretary.]]
* Uno of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', who doubles as MissionControl for the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]] and [[BigBad Jail's]] personal secretary. Heck, her [[TheCracker information gathering-based]] Inherent Skill is even named "Flawless Secretary".
* An unnamed, short-skirted secretary in yellow gets a little screentime in two episodes of ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain''. In one episode, she gets [[MaleGaze close-up shots]] [[ShesGotLegs of her legs]] as she re-crosses them, and in another, we get a nice leg shot of her.
* Cecile Croomy from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' counts as this and HotScientist.
** Villeta Nu is also this to Jeremiah Gottwald in the first season .
* Shizune from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', as Tsunade's apprentice and, after Tsunade becomes Hokage, office assistant. [[spoiler: After Naruto becomes Hokage, she keeps her position.]]
** Don't forget Mabui, the Raikage's assistant whose name means "[[MeaningfulName pretty]]".
* Akiyama Kaede from ''Manga/KenganAshura'', she is hot but of the composed variety, not flaunting her goods, the numerous fighters from the Kengan Association keep hitting on her.
* During an action sequence in the movie ''Anime/{{Kite}}'' wherein the heroine falls down a skyscraper, the action briefly cuts into an office building in which a corporate suit is having sex with his secretary.
* Yuri from ''Manga/DetectiveSchoolQ''. [[spoiler: Also a BrokenBird SympatheticMurderer.]]
* Holon from ''Anime/RealDrive''. She counts as RobotGirl too.
* Brita from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. [[spoiler: But it's only a cover, as she's actually an agent for [[LaResistance Evening Primrose]].]]
* Grace O'Connor, milquetoast stage manager and personal assistant from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier.'' [[spoiler: It's a cover.]]
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' [[RobotGirl Chachamaru]] became this for Negi. She even daydreamed about some office romance.
* Miyuki Hyuuga from ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. [[spoiler: Another "BrokenBird SympatheticMurderer# case.]]
* ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamThePlotToAssassinateGihren'' has [[TheEvilPrince Gihren's]] secretary (and rumoured mistress) Cecilia Irene. Since she's also TheBaroness and TheDragon, the trope is downplayed to say the least.
* In ''Manga/{{Gangsta}}'' Alex, a former prostitute, officially works as the SexySecretary for Benriya Co.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Betty Brant, JJJ's secretary was SpiderMan's first love, although she was not terribly sexpot. She briefly got replaced by Gloria, who was sex on two long legs.
* ''ComicBook/IronMan'' features the lovely ComicBook/PepperPotts, in the film, and the comic, naturally.
** Originally, Pepper was more of a {{Plucky Office Girl}} with freckles, the classic hair bun, and a huge crush on Tony, her boss. Eventually, she had a makeover, literally LettingHerHairDown and proving herself to have been BeautifulAllAlong.
* Anne the receptionist in the MarvelUniverse comic ''ComicBook/DamageControl''.
* Victoria Hand, Norman Osborn's second in command during ''ComicBook/DarkReign'' and ''ComicBook/{{Siege}}'', though calling her a "secretary" would be greatly under-stating her job (which was basically being the OnlySaneMan for all of HAMMER.) Not that Norman Osborn hired her for her looks anyhow.

* In the ''FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries'', we have Tanya, Tucker's mayoral assistant. [[spoiler:Who is now his campaign manager]].

* Moneypenny from the ''Film/JamesBond'' movies (and all subsequent parodies of her). The original stories describe her with the adjective "desirable" through the series. There turns out to be a lot behind the secretary who inspired Ian Fleming, and the actress who played her for two decades [[http://www.macleans.ca/article.jsp?content=20071015_110172_110172&source=srch]].
** The Moneypenny of the Dalton movies had the edge of being both blonde '''and''' wearing glasses.
** Miss Moneypenny is also noteworthy for repeatedly shooting James Bond down at every turn. (Or was it the other way round?)
** Played with in ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'' - David Niven as an out-of-retirement Bond enters his office and tells Moneypenny "You haven't changed a bit!". After a long smooch, she informs him that she's Moneypenny's daughter.
* The film ''Film/{{Secretary}}''. The secretary develops her sexy side in the course of the movie and is really neurotic and closed-up outside her relationship with her boss.
* Lois Laurel (played by no less than Creator/MarilynMonroe) in the classic 1952 screwball comedy ''Monkey Business'' (not to be confused with the 1931 Creator/MarxBrothers film of the same name). At one point her elderly male employer hands her some paperwork and says "Find someone to type this."
* Provides a moment of levity in the film ''Film/SchindlersList'': the viewer is treated to a montage of Schindler "testing" all the young female applicants to be his secretary. He flirts outrageously with each of them, then there's a shot of a grim middle-aged woman hammering away expertly at the test typewriter, with Schindler glumly slouched beside her.
* Gladys from ''Theatre/ThePajamaGame'' is really more cute than sexy, though she's treated that way by other characters.
* Ingeborg in Creator/BillyWilder's ''Film/OneTwoThree''.
* ''Film/HotFuzz''. Supermarket manager and SmugSnake Simon Skinner has one, though her personality is more that of a gum-popping SassySecretary. She does have a part-time job as a table dancer though, and seems to spend more time sitting on the desk filing her nails and showing off her legs than doing any work.
* Ulla from ''Film/TheProducers''.
* Creator/AmyAdams' character to Creator/TomHanks' in ''Film/CharlieWilsonsWar''; congressman Charlie Wilson makes it a point to employ only beautiful women as his assistants.
-->"Congressman Wilson, he has an expression. He says, 'You can teach 'em to type, but you can't teach 'em to grow tits.'"
* Pepper Potts as played by Gwyneth Paltrow in ''Film/IronMan'', though she appears to be several levels of responsibility (and pay grades) higher than usual for the trope.
* Marcia Gay Harden as Miss Cheevus in ''Film/SpyHard''.
* Adrian Veidt's secretary in ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' is quite attractive, if prone to making exasperated facial expressions when his back is turned. [[spoiler: And getting gruesomely shot in slow-mo.]]
* Miss Scott, General Turgidson's secretary and mistress in ''Film/DrStrangelove''. For bonus points, she's the only female character in the movie, and spends her entire screentime in a bikini.
* Music/DollyParton's character in ''Film/NineToFive'' is a {{subver|tedTrope}}sion. She ''looks'' like this, and everyone else in the office thinks she's this, but she is horrified by the suggestion, and it leads to her joining the other two in their plot.
** She's still a Sexy Secretary, but she's emphatically ''not'' sexing up the boss. Despite his best efforts and, as mentioned, what everyone else in the office believes (at least partially because the boss is doing his damnedest to imply that she is).
* Rose Pamphyle in ''Film/{{Populaire}}''. She is of the CuteClumsyGirl kind.
* Cover Girl from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''.
* Curvaceous Mabel Normand plays a Sexy Secretary in ''[[Film/MabelsBlunder Mabel's Blunder]]'' (1914). The boss's son is her fiance, which doesn't stop the boss from hitting on her.
* Lady Deathstrike in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', even if the leather clothes aren't there while she's Stryker's assisant.
* Panis pretends to be an applicant for this position in ''Film/ShishOBesh'' to get close to the AmoralAttorney in order to steal his ruby. The only qualification necessary seems to be SleepingWithTheBoss.

* Judy in the book ''Plainsong''.
* Lady Jessica acts as her semi-husband's aide in ''Literature/{{Dune}}''. She once with mild bitterness notes that this makes her a perfectly safe trustee of Atreides state secrets.
** Leto trusts her, but that doesn't stop some of his other assistants from questioning whether she's more loyal to House Atreides or Bene Gesserit. Which would be a fair concern, except for the fact that she actually does love Leto and for his sake has disobeyed her orders to have a daughter rather than a son with him.
* John Nike from ''Literature/JenniferGovernment'' muses at one point how, while hot secretaries are fun, they are ultimately [[AwesomeButImpractical impractical]] (since they inevitably wind up demanding, and your books never get filed properly).
* Serendipity Sargasso in ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' is a subversion. She's perfectly attractive for a fish girl, until she smiles and shows off a mouth overflowing with needle-like teeth.
* The clueless secretary in ''Literature/TrickyBusiness'', hired solely on the basis of having a cleavage a small dog could get lost in. A defining moment would be when her wanabbe criminal mastermind boss tells the media scrum outside that he's not here, at which point she goes outside to proclaim "He says he's not here".

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Hank apparently ran off with one.
* Joan from ''Series/MadMen''.
** Lane Pryce's male assistant (effectively a secretary) is considered absolutely heavenly by all of the younger American (female) secretaries. They particularly like his voice and accent, complete with the line about listening to him read the phone book.
** All of them. Probably even Miss "Queen of Perversions" Blankenship, [[IWasQuiteALooker back in her day]].
** This is actually a recurring plot point--as Joan mentions in Season 4, it's not uncommon for men to hook up with and/or marry their secretaries. Roger Sterling does it early on, eventually marrying Don's secretary; Harry Crane gets ExiledToTheCouch for it; and Don himself had a fling with Allison and [[spoiler:ends up proposing to current secretary Megan by the end of Season 4]].
* Sam from ''Series/RichardDiamondPrivateDetective'', originally played by Mary Tyler Moore, pulled this off while being unseen for the most part - all the viewers got was her voice and her legs...[[TheOtherDarrin both of which proved replaceable.]]
* Jennifer Marlowe (Loni Anderson) in ''Series/WKRPInCincinnati''. (Although she is very precise in identifying herself as a receptionist, ''not'' a secretary. And who didn't type or get coffee.)
* Stella's secretary in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. Notable in that she was played by a much revitalized Britney Spears following her divorce and subsequent breakdown.
* In ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', George tries to avoid getting a sexy secretary. He ends up with a nerdy, more efficient secretary instead, and has sex with her anyway, because she was so efficient it [[GeekyTurnOn turned him on]].
* ''Series/AufWiedersehenPet'' had Dagmar and Christa (played by Lysette Anthony).
* Commandant Klink of ''Series/HogansHeroes'' had two, Hilda and then her SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Helga.
* In the ITV1 WorkCom, ''Series/MumbaiCalling'', one of the call centre staff decides to hire a sexy secretary for his new boss. After said boss makes it clear he doesn't want one, the female assessor from London, who was dropped miles away at his suggestion (they thought she, Terri Johnson, was a he) and now looks very disheveled after an encounter with a fruit stall and donkey droppings, arrives. The first guy pulls a textbook RightInFrontOfMe, when he compliments her on her "dirty Carol Vorderman" look, but says the interviews are over.
* ''Series/{{Oz}}''. Warden Glynn gets a vivacious black woman as his PA, and for once no-one complains about having to wait to see him.
%%* Elaine Vassell from ''Series/AllyMcBeal''
* Donnatella Moss from ''Series/TheWestWing'' wasn't ''just'' a secretary, but it was clearly included in her job description. As for her sexiness, sceptics are referred to the opening section of ''The Portland Trip'' and the red dress that has become infamous in the fandom.
* Another Donna is Harvey Specter's assistant from ''Suits'' is not only sexy but also smarter then the boys and has the sass to get away with it.
* [[MsFanservice Private Helga Geerhart]] from ''Series/AlloAllo''.
* Young Mr. Grace (and his brother Old Mr. Grace) in ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' had multiple sexy secretaries during the series. Just the sight of them often put quite a lot of stress on his weak heart, and in the sequel series ''Series/GraceAndFavour'', a sexy secretary's bikini top popped off (off-screen, of course), and gave Young Mr. Grace a fatal heart attack.
** Miss Belfridge in series 9 and 10 as well.
* Stacy from ''Series/SpinCity'' played by Creator/JenniferEsposito
* The secretary that gets kidnapped by Martians in Disney's ''Mars and Beyond''.
* Naturally, Harmony is one of these once she becomes the "secretary" part in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' Season Five.
** Originally, Cordelia to Angel Investigations in Season 1.
* In [[TheFifties the 1950's]] sitcom ''Series/PrivateSecretary'', Ann Sothern played a very attractive secretary whose attempts to help out her boss (especially in romance) tended to comedically backfire.
* Charlie Runkle's hot and submissive secretary in ''Series/{{Californication}}'' Season 1.
* In ''Series/BreakingBad'', Skyler once pretends to be an incompetent secretary who was only hired for her looks to trick the IRS agent investigating the company she works for, convincing him that the irregularities he found weren't because of fraud, but because of her stupidity.
* ''Series/TheBill''. Ted Roach encounters an example in the employ of a friend who's gone into private security, who denies there's any hanky-panky going on. "You're telling me you didn't hire that girl just to watch her lick the stamps?"
* ''Series/GetSmart''. In "Greer Window" the head of Greer Industries has one, and [[MaleGaze her sexiness is emphasized]] whenever she bends down to get something from the filing cabinet. The Chief looks happy when told she has to get another file, only for his smile to disappear when told it's in the top drawer.
* Carrie Heffernan in ''Series/TheKingOfQueens'' generally resents her lowly status as a legal secretary/PA and continually strives to be seen as something more than this. But she isn't above playing on the Sexy Secretary trope for favors from her less politically correct bosses.

* In the video for the Music/{{Rammstein}} single "Pussy", the drummer Christoph Schneider plays a CEO who gets seduced by his secretary.
* Sandra [=McCoy=] as JustinTimberlake's "Sexretary" at the beginning of *Music/{{NSYNC}}'s "Pop" performance at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards.
* Lene Alexandra in her "My Boobs Are Okay" video.
* Before joining [[HelloProject Morning Musume]] Nakazawa Yuko was a secretary; she's also quite attractive.
* The Music/MarianasTrench video for "All To Myself" has one, complete with an OfficeRomance.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* Ms. Buxley from ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'', of course.
** Beetle is dating her now. Which begs the question, what happened to Bunny, Beetle's sweet girlfriend of before?
* AgathaCrumm's secretary, Winsome.
* The title character from the 1955-83 strip ''Lolly''.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/StacyKeibler played a secretary-like character named Ms. Hancock on the team Standards and Practices for the majority of her time in WCW, and occasionally donned the sexretary gear in WWF/WWE as well.
* During his run as WCW Commissioner, Ernest "The Cat" Miller had a secretary named Ms. Jones.
* In WWE, when Wrestling/MickFoley was the commissioner, Debra [=McMichael=] played this for a short time.
* [[{{TNA}} Miss Tesmacher]] [[Film/{{Superman}} (no, not that one....)]]
* Su Yung is an [[GenreSavvy advertised one]], for the Premier Athlete Brand in Wrestling/DragonGate

* Samantha, the unseen, unheard and quite possibly fictional assistant and scorer on ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue''.

* Hedy [=LaRue=] from ''HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying''. She can type only 12 WPM but has other [[HelloNurse obvious qualifications]].
* Ulla from ''Film/TheProducers''. (Yes, she is definitely worth mentioning twice.)

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Rachel in ''VisualNovel/HotelDuskRoom215''.
* Vice and Mature from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''.
* In the goblin starting zone in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the player had one on their home on Kezan.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has Yeoman Kelly Chambers, who is essentially Shepard's secretary. Flirt with her and, [[BiTheWay regardless of gender]], she flirts right back. [[spoiler:She can even show Shepard her gratitude for being rescued.]]
** Her role in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is taken over by [[BrainyBrunette Samantha]] [[LipstickLesbian Traynor]], who will sleep only with ''female'' Shepard and actually contributes to the plot.
* The Imperial Agent in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' contacts headquarters through Watcher Two, whom the male Agent can flirt shamelessly with.
* Kotori Otonashi from ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'' game/[[Anime/TheIdolmaster anime]].
* Olga from ''AsurasWrath'' [[spoiler: Reincarnates into one of these in TheStinger of Episode 22 of the game and is Deus's secretary.]]
* Jodie Crawford from ''VideoGame/MetalWolfChaos'' is a secretary, has a cute err... icon, and a rather pretty voice!
* Courtney from ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', who's blonde and wears glasses and low-cut tops, as well as being a CuteClumsyGirl.
* Ingrid Hunnigan in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 Resident Evil 4]]'' fits this trope with a splash of {{Meganekko}} for good measure.

* The webcomic ''EvilInc.'' has had two; Lightning Lady and Desdemona. (Evil Atom hires them strictly on this basis.)
* Lavender of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] alien secretary who adopts a rather over-the-top appearance because [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2011-01-12 she's a bit attracted to her boss.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* HelloNurse from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' seems to be this, rather than an actual nurse.
* The secretary from the ''{{Garfield}}: Babes and Bullets'' special.
* Rosemary on ''WesternAnimation/HongKongPhooey''.
* ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' gives us the lovely Tricia, secretary to [[strike:Howard Stark]] Obadiah Stane.
* Ms. Sara Bellum, the Mayor's [[TheFaceless faceless]] yet very [[StatuesqueStunner statuesque]] assistant from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. (Was also quite the ActionGirl in one episode after being kidnapped by Sedusa.)
* Janine Melnitz on ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''. Compared at the [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} movie]], she became a tall and curvy bombshell. In the first seasons regularly comes to work in tank tops and mini-skirts, and even once in a bikini...
* An episode of the ''SamAndMax'' animated series pastiching spy films in general and James Bond in particular featured one. When Sam addresses her as "Honey bunny", Max suggests that he's being a tad familiar, but Sam points out that no, "Honeybunny" is her name, she's the temp the Geek hired; so Max flirts a little himself. Later on, she tries to flirt back, but she's disguised as the Geek at the time (it's probably best not to ask how or why, since the Geek is twelve years old and half Honeybunny's size), and Max is so wigged out that he opts to run for the hills even after she takes off the disguise.
* ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' has Callie Briggs, the (much more competent) aid to the (foolish) Mayor Manx.
* [[TheDragon Leslie]] from ''WesternAnimation/WordGirl''.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Sandra Telfer of ''BrokenSaints'' fame.
