Playing With / Girls Behind Bars

Basic Trope: Women's prisons are treated as an Excuse Plot for lesbian porn or are presented as cozy, clean and safe in constrast to men's prisons.
  • Straight: Alice is sent to prison for jaywalking. She ends up entering into a hot, steamy relationship with her cellmate.
  • Exaggerated: Alice's cell is a Luxury Prison Suite. Heck, Alice Might as Well Not Be in Prison at All. And all the inmates wear sexy lingerie under their prison uniforms and have orgy parties together.
  • Downplayed: Alice's cell isn't too bad (more like a college dorm room), and she gets along well with the other inmates, but isn't anyone's girlfriend.
  • Justified:
    • Alice is in a minimum-security prison, and there isn't much in the way of gang culture in this setting.
    • Alice is wealthy and committed a white-collar crime.
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted:
    • Alice gets in a brutal conflict with the prison's Alpha Bitch when she gets there and has to train herself in order to avoid getting bullied or killed by her.
    • Alice meets her cellmate, who is much stronger and tougher than she is and a bully to boot.
  • Double Subverted:
    • But then winds up in a loving (and sexy) relationship with her, which improves her station in prison life.
    • The cellmate ends up on friendly terms with Alice, and does not rape her.
  • Parodied:
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted:
    • The prison is portrayed as dangerous, maybe even to the point of being a Hellhole Prison.
    • Alice doesn't go to prison.
  • Enforced: Girl-on-Girl Is Hot, Viewers Are Morons.
  • Lampshaded: "Don't worry about it, Alice; girl jail is just lingerie-clad pillow fights. You know, like on TV!"
  • Invoked: Alice is sent to prison.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: "You really think female prisons are all about carpet-munching and lounging around in lacey lingerie? Bob, stop watching TV, it does things to you."
  • Discussed: "Alice will be fine; women's prisons aren't that bad. Not like men's prisons." "Then explain to me why the prettiest inmates come out with huge facial scars they didn't have upon going in."
  • Conversed: "Clearly, TV writers should stop fapping and start researching about women's prison."
  • Deconstructed: Because everyone believes a women's prison is just a peaceful dormitory for naughty girls, nobody notices that all the prisoners are planning a massive escape. When the plan is put to execution, no one is prepared and the whole prison's staff gets slaughtered by the inmates as they successfully escape.
  • Reconstructed: The setting is portrayed realistically, with Alice struggling everyday to survive and not become anyone's "special friend."
