* In [[Literature/TheBible the book of Jeremiah]], God condemns the Jews for treating His Temple like "a den of robbers" by breaking all the commandments except for "keeping the Sabbath holy" (by implication), declaring that "we are delivered" so that they can continue doing their abominations. (The same description is used by Jesus in the Gospels when He goes into the Temple to clean it out of the marketers and money-changers violating her sanctity.) In the apocryphal [[Literature/BooksOfMaccabees book of 2nd Maccabees]], the Temple is actually reduced to this with the introduction of pagan revelry by Antiochus Epiphanes.

A Den of Iniquity is typically a room, auditorium, or stadium in the EvilOverlord's EvilTowerOfOminousness or IslandBase where all sorts of sin and wrongdoing takes place. Although towers are in short supply nowadays, if the BigBad happens to [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem make and/or enforce the laws]] they might have one in their mansion (but explaining them to less debauched guests might be tricky).

** In Talador, part of the city has Legion demons called "Concubines of Lust" and "Nefarious Madams", along with many mortal Legion members. It's pretty obvious what the purpose of the place is.

* In the ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' book "Being a Green Mother," we find that Satan runs Mock Hell, where all types of sin can be indulged in, for "merely" a percentage of evil on your soul. Of course, when you get over 50%, you go to Hell for real. And it's no picnic. Of course, Satan being Satan, the pleasures [[spoiler:aren't real]], but the evil on the soul is.
