Watched Pretty Woman last night, was inspired to create this thread. I am particularly interested in seeing Bondo's list - and maybe oldkid's too.

Part of the fall half of the story is DD masterbating for pay, and maybe there's a BJ too?

1. McCabe & Mrs. Miller
2. Moulin Rouge
3. Midnight Cowboy
4. In the Realm of the Senses
5. Last Exit to Brooklyn
6. Hustle & Flow
7. Leaving Las Vegas
8. Taxi Driver
9. Mysterious Skin
10. Unforgiven

L.A. Confidential has a potential Top 5 movie prostitute, but is not a top film about prostitution

While True Romance is a great film, its view of prostitution is such male wish fulfillment fantasy that I disqualified it from this list. Same for Sin City.
