Here's a Blondie song about a prostitute, but far less well known than "Call Me." In this scenario, she is arrested, but she and the cop know that he wants her. The song ends with the line, "And when I get out, there's no doubt, I'll be sex offensive to you." (thanks, Bob - Santa Barbara, CA)
When bassist Gary Valentine was 17-years-old he got his underage girlfriend pregnant and was given a statutory rape charge as a result. He penned a song titled "Sex Offender," about the experience. Debbie Harry changed the lyrics so that the song was about a prostitute falling in love with the police officer that had arrested her.
