* In the Literature/BooksOfKings, King David is on the rooftop of his palace, and happens to catch a beautiful young woman by the name of Bathsheba taking an open-air bath. (According to some interpretations, this was a ritual bath to "purify" her after menstruation.) He [[OutdoorBathPeeping watches her intently while she bathes, most likely with no idea that she's being watched.]] He finds out who she is: the wife of one of his best soldiers, Uriah, who happens to be off fighting in a war...and summons Bathsheba to the palace for sex. She becomes pregnant, and King David's response is to try and get Uriah to come home and have sex with her (something explicitly forbidden under the law). And when Uriah refuses, he has Uriah sent to the front lines, where he is killed in battle...and then marries Bathsheba, passing it off as an HonorableMarriageProposal, which gets him a pretty intense WhatTheHellHero from his advisor, Nathan. Notably, no moral commentary is made on Bathsheba's acceptance of David's summons, or even on her going along with his plan to pass off her baby as Uriah's, indicating that [[QuestionableConsent she went along with it because she was afraid]], not because she was amoral. [[FairForItsDay Which would have been a pretty radical notion]], in the days when the prevailing view on female sexuality was that AllWomenAreLustful.

** She's not seen bathing on screen, but [[spoiler: the {{heel face turn}}ed Aversa]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is said to be "the one who bathes longer than anyone else in the army". If asked about what she does in her free time her reply is "I usually go for a swim in the lake. ... [[Radar/FireEmblem Sometimes even]] [[SkinnyDipping in proper attire.]]"
