I see the similarity, but DeFoe's Roxanna would say she "was never so wicked as that," because she only did it for money and ambition--never for fun:

"I could not without blushing, as wicked as I was, answer that I loved it for the sake of the vice, and that I delighted in being a whore as such--I say I could not say this even to myself, and all alone, nor indeed would it have been true. I was never able with justice and in truth to say I was so wicked as that, but as necessity first debauched me and poverty made me a whore in the beginning, so excess of avarice for getting money and excess of vanity continued me in the crime ..."
