** The tenth and early eleventh centuries were known as the "pornocracy" (="rule of the prostitutes") in Rome, when the Pope's mistresses (frequently Roman nobles) and their friends (frequently the mistresses' brothers) ran Rome and the Church "[[ComicBook/TheCartoonHistoryOfTheUniverse by means fair and foul]]." At about the same time, discipline in the lower ranks was also notoriously bad, with priests, monks, and bishops regularly indulging in luxuries and other things that really ought to be off-limits to one who has taken vows of chastity and poverty.
** During TheRenaissance, the Popes were once again taking mistresses and generally behaving badly. While the most famous for his womanizing (and other things) is Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia), the other Popes of the era got in on the act, as well. At the same time, most priests and lower-level ecclesiastics were not half as bad, but many bishops, most archbishops, and pretty much all the cardinals engaged in lives of luxury, intrigue, nepotism, and multiple mistresses. However, the Reformation (and consequent Counter-Reformation) put the kibosh on all that with the new rule that clergy had to be celibate and could no longer own property.

* Used several times in ''JudgeDee'', and PlayedForDrama. The Judge's third wife was raped by a monk who saw her defenseless, and in another a shrine renowned for allowing unfertile women to have children turns out to be run by monks who use a decidedly non-sanctioned method to conceive.

* ''{{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'.

* Miroku from ''Manga/InuYasha''. He would touch other girls butts and every time he meets a woman, he would ask, "Would you bear my children?" even the demons. And it's actually InTheBlood, sort-of: his grandfather was once defeated and cursed by Naraku, who appared to him as a beautiful woman. Add how Miroku was raised by ''yet another'' DirtyOldMonk after his father died, and is it any wonder that he turned out to be the local HandsomeLech?
** Somewhat justified though as the curse of the Wind Tunnel will eventually kill him so he only has a limited amount of time to father children in if he fails to break it.

* The Dirty Vicar in ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.


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''."
