Sexy Secretary

Go To

"I know about these girls. With their low marks and high hemlines!"
Grace "97%" Makutsi, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Not the same as the Sassy Secretary (although there is some overlap, especially in Hardboiled Detective stories), this is a PA/Secretary etc. who is quite the sexpot. You may add office-related Double Entendre 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.

Distaff Counterpart to the Right-Hand Hottie.

Compare other occupations that are often sexified when a woman is doing it like Hot Librarian, Sexy Stewardess, Hot Teacher, and Fair Cop. Also compare other female White Collar Workers like Plucky Office Girl, High-Powered Career Woman, and Office Lady. Due to the interpersonal nature of the role, they may be The Face of their group. Compare Girl Friday, with whom she almost always overlaps, and Ditzy Secretary, with whom she rarely overlaps.

  • Grace O'Connor is Sheryl Nome's milquetoast stage manager and personal assistant from Macross Frontier. It's a cover, as she is actually the Big Bad.
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: The Plot to Assassinate Gihren has Gihren's secretary (and rumoured mistress) Cecilia Irene. Since she's also The Baroness and The Dragon, the trope is downplayed to say the least.
  • Naruto:
    • Shizune, as Tsunade's apprentice and, after Tsunade becomes Hokage, office assistant. After Kakashi and later Naruto become Hokage, she keeps her position while also retaining her youthful appearance.
  • In Negima! Magister Negi Magi Chachamaru became this for Negi. She even daydreamed about some office romance.

    Comic Books 
  • Spider-Man: Betty Brant, J. Jonah Jameson's secretary was Peter Parker's first love, although she was not terribly sexpot. She briefly got replaced by Glory Grant, who was sex on two long legs.
  • Iron Man: The lovely Pepper Potts. 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 Letting Her Hair Down and proving herself to have been Beautiful All Along.
  • Daredevil: Karen Page when she was Matt and Foggy's secretary.
  • Damage Control: Anne the receptionist.
  • Victoria Hand, Norman Osborn's second in command during Dark Reign and Siege, though calling her a "secretary" would be greatly under-stating her job (which was basically being the Only Sane Man for all of HAMMER.) Not that Norman Osborn hired her for her looks anyhow.
  • Wonder Woman (1942): In the Golden Age Wonder Woman acted as the secretary to Colonel (later General) Darnell. Darnell was a happily married man with zero interest in Di beyond her skills, though he seemed to support Diana and Steve's burgeoning relationship and be aware that she was secretly Wonder Woman given how often he sends her out of the office when there's something needing Wondy's attention afoot.
  • The Chronicles of Wormwood: Danny's regular homely-looking secretary is out sick, and gets a substitute in the form of an absolute bombshell who keeps bending over to pick things up, just as he's trying to convince his girlfriend he's not cheating on her (anymore). At the end of the story, it turns out the secretary's a lesbian, and the girlfriend had already seen the secretary with her own girlfriend (but Danny making an ass of himself was quite enjoyable).


  • Miss Moneypenny from the James Bond 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 Lois Maxwell.
    • The Moneypenny of the Timothy Dalton movies had the edge of being both blonde and wearing glasses.
    • Played with in Casino Royale (1967) - 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.
    • Skyfall ends up being something of an Origin Story for the character, where it is revealed that she became a secretary because she felt she wasn't suited to field work, having previously worked alongside Bond.
    • In Thunderball it's shown that even Blofeld has one! In the scene where he orders the assassination of Count Lippe, an attractive woman in glasses and a buttoned-up yet see-through blouse is shown writing down his command. It's probably to show the corporate nature of SPECTRE, because in the novels a clue to SPECTRE's true nature is that traditionally female jobs were filled by men.
  • The Bank Job: Downplayed with Terry's secretary Ingrid, who is pretty (something Terry flippantly comments on), but dresses conservatively and is Happily Married to Terry's mechanic Eddie.
  • The 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 Marilyn Monroe) in the classic 1952 screwball comedy Monkey Business (not to be confused with the 1931 Marx Brothers film of the same name). At one point her elderly male employer hands her some paperwork and says "Find someone to type this." As she sashays away the boss murmurs, "Anyone can type."
  • Provides a moment of levity in the film Schindler's List: 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 The Pajama Game is really more cute than sexy, though she's treated that way by other characters.
  • Ingeborg in Billy Wilder's One, Two, Three.
  • Hot Fuzz. Supermarket manager and Smug Snake Simon Skinner has one, though her personality is more that of a gum-popping Sassy Secretary. 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 The Producers.
  • Amy Adams' character to Tom Hanks' in Charlie Wilson's War; 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 Iron Man, though she appears to be several levels of responsibility (and pay grades) higher than usual for the trope. Throughout the three films, she gradually ascends from being Tony's Hyper-Competent Sidekick to replacing him as head of his company (which he wasn't particularly good at doing himself due to being Brilliant, but Lazy and being a questionable judge of character, in addition to moonlighting as a jetsetting superhero.)
  • Marcia Gay Harden as Miss Cheevus in Spy Hard. She doesn't have fond memories of the role.
  • Adrian Veidt's secretary in Watchmen is quite attractive, if prone to making exasperated facial expressions when his back is turned. And getting gruesomely shot in slow-mo. In a subversion, Veidt is likely using her as The Beard given his implied homosexuality.
  • Miss Scott, General Turgidson's secretary and mistress in Dr. Strangelove. For bonus points, she's the only female character in the movie, and spends her entire screentime in a bikini.
  • Dolly Parton's character in 9 to 5 is a subversion. 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 Populaire. A Cute Clumsy Girl in France of The '50s who becomes secretary to an insurer then a champion in typewriting competitions. When Rose demonstrates her skills at typweriting for the first time, the left shoulder of the tie of her dress falls and her hair goes wild. As the story goes, her sexiness increases.
  • Curvaceous Mabel Normand plays a Sexy Secretary in Mabel's Blunder (1914). The boss's son is her fiance, which doesn't stop the boss from hitting on her.
  • Lady Deathstrike in X2: X-Men United, even if the leather clothes aren't there while she's Stryker's assisant.
  • Panis pretends to be an applicant for this position in Shish O Besh to get close to the Amoral Attorney in order to steal his ruby. The only qualification necessary seems to be Sleeping with the Boss.
  • Wife vs. Secretary: After The Hays Code banhammer came down, MGM started toning down the unapologetic sluttiness of Jean Harlow's image from The Pre-Code Era. That's seen in this film where she plays Whitey, a more wholesome go-getting secretary and executive assistant. But Whitey's still a Sexy Secretary—too sexy, as far as her boss Van's wife Linda is concerned. And for that matter practically everyone else assumes incorrectly that Van has a thing going with his Sexy Secretary.
  • Ali G Indahouse: Kate Hedges, the Deputy Prime Minister's private secretary played by Rhona Mitra. Ali G is rather blatant about drooling over her. Her hotness actually becomes a plot point later when they try to keep Ali G quiet about their real estate conspiracy by having her get into his pants.
  • Molly from One Touch of Venus is a downplayed example. While presented as more a match for Whitfield's intelligence, she's still played by Hollywood beauty Eve Arden.
  • Ghostbusters (2016) has a rare male example. The female Ghostbusters hire a Brainless Beauty played by Chris Hemsworth as their secretary.
  • Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. The admiral's secretary Lieutenant Cathy Connors, a young blonde woman who is introduced via a Male Gaze of her Shaking the Rump as she dances in the messhall. She's the only woman serving on board the submarine, she wears a tight skirt and heels despite all the ladders, and she's in a relationship with her superior officer whom she intends to marry, openly embracing and addressing him by his first name regardless of whether the crew is around.
  • Dr. Blacker from Doctor in Distress (1963) has Miss Steele, a pretty young girl who wears short skirts and has a large bust.
  • Sid and Harry from Raising the Wind have the luscious Doris. Sid's quite a fan of her rear in particular.

  • A man goes to a temp agency to hire a new secretary. The agency produces several résumés, and asks the man which one he wants to hire.
    Customer: The one with the biggest tits!

  • Dune:
    • Lady Jessica acts as her semi-husband's aide. 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 Jennifer Government muses at one point how, while hot secretaries are fun, they are ultimately impractical (since they inevitably wind up demanding, and your books never get filed properly).
  • Serendipity Sargasso in City of Devils and its sequel 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 Tricky Business, hired solely on the basis of having a cleavage a small dog could get lost in. A defining moment would be when her wannabe criminal mastermind boss says to tell the media scrum outside that he's not here, at which point she goes outside to proclaim, "He says he's not here".
  • In Vampirocracy, Leon and Ling's private detective agency has secretary Liz, who is blonde, beautiful, buxom, and reads Shakespere during her downtime.
  • In James P. Hogan's The Proteus Operation, Lieutenant Colonel Boeckel is involved with his secretary, Hildegarde, who is described as 'trim and shapely'. He is told not to be so obvious about his relationship with her; shortly thereafter, she is sent elsewhere, and his new secretary is "fat as a carthorse and has bad breath".
  • In the Heroes "R" Us Soldiers of Barrabas pulp novels, the Sleazy Politician who gives the SOB's their assignments has a buxom secretary who's clearly his mistress. In a subversion, she's an Ice Queen who doesn't bother hiding her disdain for her boss and everyone else.
  • Grace Matsuki of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency has no patience for these types of secretaries, or indeed, such types of women in general (having herself passed her own secretary course with 97%).
  • Completely subverted by Hercule Poirot's secretary Miss Lemon, who is utterly repulsive but a terrifyingly efficient secretary. Her spare time is occupied by thinking up the ultimate in document organization systems.
  • Secret Santa (2004): Executive Assistant Marcy is described as "shapely" and "one of Bigelow's favorite sights."
  • We Can Remember It For You Wholesale exaggerates this with Shirley, the receptionist at Rekal, the company that sells memories, works with her large exposed breasts on full display.

    Live Action TV 
  • Angel: Cordelia acts as this for Angel Investigations in Season 1. In Season Five when Angel becomes CEO of Wolfram & Hart, he naturally has to have this trope, so ditzy blonde vampire Harmony is recruited. Angel is not happy about this, though the episode "Harm's Way" reveals that she is actually good at her job, if constantly underappreciated.
  • Young Mr. Grace (and his brother Old Mr. Grace) in Are You Being Served? 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 Grace & Favour, a sexy secretary's bikini top popped off (off-screen, of course), and gave Young Mr. Grace a fatal heart attack.
  • Auf Wiedersehen, Pet had Dagmar and Christa (played by Lysette Anthony).
  • The Bill: 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. Roach replies, "You're telling me you didn't hire that girl just to watch her lick the stamps?"
  • In Breaking Bad, Ted Beneke is being audited by the IRS for cooking his books, and Skyler has to intervene since if the IRS starts looking into her, they'll find evidence of the money laundering Skyler's doing with Walt's drug manufacturing. Skyler pretends to be an incompetent secretary who was only hired for her looks to trick the IRS agent auditing Ted, convincing him that the irregularities he found weren't because of fraud, but because of her stupidity.
  • The Brittas Empire has Julie, whose sexy side is played up in "Temple of the Body" when a tabloid magazine tries to interview her after she is photographed saving a dog from a lake whilst naked.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Hank apparently ran off with one.
  • Charlie Runkle's hot and submissive secretary in Californication Season 1.
  • Coronation Street: Rosie Webster during her Fille Fatale phase tried to be one to her boss Tony. She didn't do very well when she surprised him in a hotel room, and abandoned this afterwards. The sexy secretary schitck, not the Fille Fatale behaviour.
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe
    • Jessica Jones (2015): Jeri Hogarth's secretary, Pam, is younger, bustier and more attractive than her wife. She's having an affair with her.
    • Daredevil (2015): Karen Page, played by the stunning Deborah Ann Woll, functions as one for Nelson & Murdock. Both Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson are attracted to her, and in season 2, Matt begins dating her. Likely with this trope in mind however, she repeatedly insists that she's not a "secretary" but an "office manager", given that she does most of the work to keep the place running.
    • Luke Cage (2016): Diamondback was born out of wedlock from an affair his preacher father had with his secretary.
      Diamondback: I wish you could have met Dana, my mother. (hands Boone a photograph)
      Boone: She's beautiful.
      Diamondback: She was a secretary for a big-time preacher. A bold, charismatic man who loved to talk loud and dress fancy. They worked long, stressful hours and... Well they had a lot of laughter in that back office. Something was bound to happen did. I was born.
  • Diplomatic Immunity has Kirsty, who is more of a Perky Goth version of this trope. But she still receives multiple proposals every year, to her annoyance. In contrast to the other corrupt members of the embassy, she seems to be the only one who does any legitimate work.
  • Game of Thrones: Missandei is essentially Daenerys' secretary and is a good looking woman to boot.
  • Get Smart: In "Greer Window" the head of Greer Industries has one, and 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.
  • Commandant Klink of Hogan's Heroes had two, Hilda and then her Suspiciously Similar Substitute Helga.
  • Stella's secretary in How I Met Your Mother. Notable in that she was played by a much revitalized Britney Spears following her divorce and subsequent breakdown.
  • Carrie Heffernan in The King of Queens 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.
  • Joan Holloway from Mad Men, as played by the stunning Christina Hendricks.
    • A male variant in the form of Lane Pryce's assistant (effectively a secretary). He 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 Ida "Queen of Perversions" Blankenship, 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 Exiled to the Couch for it; and Don himself had a fling with Allison and ends up proposing to current secretary Megan by the end of Season 4.
  • In the Disneyland episode "Mars and Beyond", The secretary that gets kidnapped by Martians is originally depicted as being sexy and not very bright. After she's kidnapped by Martians, she turns into a superheroine and rescues herself.
  • In the ITV1 Work Com, Mumbai Calling, 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 Right in Front of Me, when he compliments her on her "dirty Carol Vorderman" look, but says the interviews are over.
  • Downplayed in The Nutt House. Sally (played by Molly Hagan) is certainly attractive, and Charles falls for her on sight, but she's not described as a sexpot.
  • The Office (US) had two receptionists at Dundler Mifflin, Pam Beesly and Erin Hannon, both of whom were complimented on their looks and attracted many co-workers.
  • Oz: Warden Glynn gets a vivacious black woman as his PA, and for once no-one complains about having to wait to see him.
  • In the 1950's sitcom Private Secretary, Ann Sothern played a very attractive secretary whose attempts to help out her boss (especially in romance) tended to comedically backfire.
  • The Professionals. George Cowley has a number of attractive women working as secretaries or chauffeurs, as noted with appreciation by Bodie and Doyle, or envious Whitehall mandarins. Cowley claims not to notice their looks and in fairness his relationships with them are always professional, likely because at least some of them are trained CI5 agents.
  • Sam from Richard Diamond Private Detective, 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...both of which proved replaceable.
  • In 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 turned him on.
  • Stacy Paterno from Spin City played by Jennifer Esposito.
  • Jennifer Marlowe (Loni Anderson) in WKRP in Cincinnati: Although Jennifer is very precise in identifying herself as a receptionist, not a secretary since she didn't type, take dictation or get coffee. Originally written as a Ditzy Secretary, Loni Anderson refused to play her that way and instead auditioned with her being the smartest person at the station and something of a snot. Producers loved it and rewrote the character to fit Anderson's interpretation.
  • Donnatella Moss from The West Wing 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.

  • Humorama: Their digest line featured these as a staple of their gag cartoons. It helps that many were drawn by skilled illustrators like Dan Decarlo, Bill Ward and Bill Wenzel.

  • In the video for the Rammstein single "Pussy", the drummer Christoph Schneider plays a CEO who gets seduced by his secretary.
  • Sandra McCoy as Justin Timberlake's "Sexretary" at the beginning of **NSYNC's "Pop" performance at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards.
  • Lene Alexandra in her "My Boobs Are Okay" video.
  • Before joining Morning Musume Nakazawa Yuko was a secretary; she's also quite attractive.

    Video Games 
  • Olga from Asura's Wrath Reincarnates into one of these in The Stinger of Episode 22 of the game and is Deus's secretary.
  • The character of Miss Danvers from Bully isn't one, but looks like she might have been 10 years or so ago. Interestingly, beta screenshots show that she originally was one, and her appearance was altered late in the games development to age her up and make her facial expression more stern and less pouty.
  • Rachel in Hotel Dusk: Room 215.
  • Kotori Otonashi from The iDOLM@STER game/anime.
  • Vice and Mature from The King of Fighters are first seen as Rugal Berstein's secretaries, but after his death in 95, they become playable characters and Iori Yagami's fighting partners.
  • Mass Effect 2 has Yeoman Kelly Chambers, who is essentially Shepard's secretary. Flirt with her and, regardless of gender, she flirts right back. She can even show Shepard her gratitude for being rescued.
  • In Mass Effect 3, Kelly Chambers' role is taken over by Samantha Traynor, who will sleep only with female Shepard and actually contributes to the plot.
  • Courtney from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, who's blonde and wears glasses and low-cut tops, as well as being a Cute Clumsy Girl.
  • Oleana in Pokémon Sword and Shield is the personal assistant to Chairman Rose.
  • Jodie Crawford from Metal Wolf Chaos is a secretary, has a cute err... icon, and a rather pretty voice!
  • Ingrid Hunnigan in Resident Evil 4 fits this trope with a splash of Meganekko for good measure.
  • The Imperial Agent in Star Wars: The Old Republic contacts headquarters through Watcher Two, whom the male Agent can flirt shamelessly with.

    Web Animation 

  • The webcomic Evil, Inc. has had two; Lightning Lady and Desdemona. (Evil Atom hires them strictly on this basis.)
  • Lavender of El Goonish Shive is a shapeshifting alien secretary who adopts a rather over-the-top appearance because she's a bit attracted to her boss.
  • Parodied in-universe in Kill Six Billion Demons: On one occasion when Incubus appears in Allison's symbolical mental world, he's sitting behind a desk like he's in an Earth-style office. He also has a what might at first sight appear to be a sexily dressed female secretary... except that's also Incubus himself, with hair and clothes appropriate for the role. The way he looks, you might not even notice if you read quickly.

If you don't mind me asking... How the hell do you people manage to get any work done?
