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'.

* Mentioned in ''Literature/{{Sharpe}}'s Devil''. Captain Ardiles describes how you can tell which is the best whorehouse in town: it's the one all the priests patronise. "And this one," he concludes, "is where the Bishop goes!"

* 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]].
