I can think of quite a few examples of Tayuu, Yujo, Oiran and plain "women of ill repute" that have featured in modern mass media.

Here are some examples: Please add your own! Discuss, debate, read, watch, laugh and enjoy!

Sakuran -- originally a Manga, or illustrated novel from Japan, this was made into a live-action TV series, I believe, as well as featuring in at least one Music Video for a famous singer in Japan.
Samurai Champloo -- an Anime (or Japanese Cartoon animation) series that follows a pair of men and a young lady as they search for a man through ancient japan. One episode has them spending the night in the red-light district!
Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto -- an anime about a theater troupe in Edo times, at one point in the series, they watch a Oiran Parade go by!
Peacemaker Kurogane -- Another amazing Anime which has an oiran in it.
