The sex part is unconfirmable, though, due to No Hugging, No Kissing. Revy has elements of this, minus the sex — at least as far as we know. Eda is an even better example, while not as much as a hardass like Revy, she drinks more then Revy, sleeps around more as in a little than Revy, and still kicks copious amounts of ass.
Revy's lad-ette nature is quite explicitly due to her, frankly, rather messed up psyche and a reaction to the vicious, soul-crushing life she's led.
