Added DiffLines:

* In Episode 39 "Grandstand (or: The British Showbiz Awards)" of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', there is the "Dirty Vicar sketch". Here, it involves a vicar who [[SplitPersonality alternates without warning]] from a QuintessentialBritishGentleman and cockney-accented, lumbering brute that tackles two women, spouting "I like tits!" and "I'd like to get my fingers around those knockers" as he actively molests them.

* While he's not an "old" monk, ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade]]'' gives us [[HandsomeLech Saul]] - a priest who just can't help eyeing up every woman he sees and hitting on anything with two X chromosomes.However, [[RunningGag he never actually dates anyone]] - mostly [[HilarityEnsues due to increasingly ridiculous hijinks]] - and [[CelibateHero never actually sleeps with anyone]]. Furthermore, he takes his duties as a priest and faith in God surprisingly seriously and has a number of intellectual conversations with the atheist [[BrokenBird Igrene]]. It's ultimately implied that his attempted womanising is at least partly ObfuscatingStupidity: as he's been sent by the 'verse's equivalent of the Pope to keep an eye on the war raging across the land and protect [[TheHero Roy]] and, thus, play the part of a fool to make sure that he can remain beneath suspicion.

* ''Series/TheCommish''. Commissioner Scali uncovers a high-class escort ring, only to be bombarded with calls from politicians and businessman pressuring him to drop the case. He's relieved when told there's a priest on the line, only for him also to express 'concern' about the case. Scali responds pointedly, "I'm sorry, but it is a crime. Not to mention a ''sin''."

* The Canadian song "Le curé de Terrebonne" has a young woman confess that she's loved men. The priest tells her a sin of that caliber can only be handled in Rome. She asks if she needs to bring her man along, the priest suggests another penance: kiss him five or six times and receive absolution. He does ask that she not go around telling people about it, as he already has enough work as it is.

The depiction of such characters varies widely between Western and Eastern works; while manga and anime will often [[LovableSexManiac play it for laughs]] with Buddhist (or [[FantasyCounterpartCulture pseudo-Buddhist]]) monk/priest characters, Western works will usually portray such characters as depraved, hypocritical, and often outright predatory (cf. PedophilePriest). It isn't though, that the Europe doesn't have its share of a comedic holy lechers, especially in older works, when such humor was easier to stomach.

* Friar Carl in ''Film/VanHelsing'', [[InsistentTerminology but technically he's only a friar,]] [[BlatantLies so that makes it okay.]]
* ''{{Bedazzled}}'' (1967) - a cardinal is at the Devil's going away party in his seedy nightclub and hits on Stanley who's in nun drag - earlier on Stanley wonders why the devil doesn't use a pigeon to crap on a clergyman and make him sin with anger; the devil explains 'he's on our side'.

* The very first recorded use of any variant of the word "[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]" (in this case a [[CypherLanguage slightly ciphered]] "[[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe fvccant]]", mashing an English root [[CanisLatinicus with a Latin ending]]) was used in a poem called "Flen Flyys", denouncing a bunch of horny monks that were having carnal relations with the women of a village called Ely.

* In Literature/TheGoodSoldierSvejk Otto Katz is depicted as "the most perfect of army chaplains". An [[UsefulNotes/TheSoundOfMartialMusic Austro-Hungarian]] UsefulNotes/WorldWarI military chaplain who is given to drink (he's TheAlcoholic of the novel where almost all characters are drinking heavily) and card games with other officers (though he's widely suspected of [[CardSharp hiding aces up in the sleeve of his cassock]] by them), but he is less inclined to visiting brothels, because he has some debts there. Instead he sends his orderly to fetch him a StreetWalker time from time. His sermons and religious services are often considered quite refreshing, as his alcoholic ramblings and drunken improvisations sometimes remade a Holy Mass into an entirely new kind of show. In general he takes chaplaincy as "''just a well paid profession, where a fellow does not have to overwork himself''" (he was actually raised Jewish - [[InformedJudaism which apparently had not influenced him in any way]], either), but he also states that he is quite tolerant to his more religiously-minded colleagues.
* Variation in the ''Literature/NewJediOrder''. [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] science is more about religious doctrine and tradition than the scientific method, and master shapers - the highest-ranked scientists - are expected to live ascetic lives "above the carnal" dedicated to spirituality and knowledge. Master Shaper Kae Kwaad is a lecherous CloudCuckooLander who in between ranting incoherently and ordering nonsensical experiments spends most of his time hitting on his (young, female, attractive) apprentice [[PunchClockVillain Nen Yim]] in complete defiance of tradition, religion, and the expectations of his station. [[spoiler: Turns out he's actually Onimi, the Supreme Overlord's jester, in disguise - in his real identity he's just as much of a pervert, but can get away with it because he's basically untouchable and doesn't have to worry about social graces anyway]].
