близко к нашему "ночная бабочка". Словосочетание мягкое, употребляется не часто. Отметим, что в американских выражениях (и в сознании американского народа тоже - одно с другим прямо связано) проституция никогда не являлась чем-то романтичным. Так было до самого последнего времени, пока рэпперы не понесли в массы "светлый образ отважного сутенера" (см. PIMP). Но проституток они и в песнях мягким термином "lady of the evening" не называют. У них вообще для женщин определения погрубее - из других словарных гнезд этой книги.
