[[caption-width-right:330: The Good Shepherd sure knows how to party.]]

->''"First, I want to walk into a bar and drink it. And then I'm going to start a fight with five men and win. And then I am going to make use of a truly staggering number of prostitutes. Some of whom I may have once been married to. Following which, I will buy drugs. I will, in fact, show them a large pillowcase, and tell them to fill it with drugs. And I'm putting it all on the goddamn expense account."''
-->-- '''Mitchell Royce''', ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}''

A typical way to show that some characters have fallen into decadence is to show them being highly promiscuous and/or doing lots of drugs. Sometimes this can even lead to a character's downfall (if the protagonist), or outright death (if a villain or supporting character).

This became an especially popular thing in TheEighties, because other displays of [[ConspicuousConsumption excessive wealth]] were considered a good thing (even FurAndLoathing didn't signify decadence all the time). But with awareness of AIDS, and the message of DrugsAreBad, this trope became a great way to show characters falling from grace.

The term is a common slang for what some politicians, celebrities, and {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s like to have at parties.[[note]]Also the single funniest response to the job interview question "What are your weaknesses?", next to [[Franchise/{{Superman}} "Kryptonite"]], although the latter doesn't risk losing you the job.[[/note]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine,_women_and_song Wine, women, and song]] is an older, related term.

For extra depravity have the cocaine snorted off of the hooker's arse and/or breasts.

SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll is a SubTrope where this happens to rockers. A BingeMontage is a common way to portray a night like this.

Not to be confused with [[JustForPun hookers who blow]].



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In the '80s anime, ''The Professional'', Manga/{{Golgo 13}}'s target in San Francisco, Bernart Muller, is an ex-Nazi who is partying with hookers in a penthouse sealed in bulletproof glass.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Jiraiya takes Naruto's money, claiming he wants to protect [[ChildrenAreInnocent Naruto from this trope]]. Naruto later finds him in a bar, drunk off his ass and entertaining two prostitutes.[[note]] Well, OK, it's not explicitly said that they're prostitutes, given that this is an anime geared towards middle-school-aged boys, but it's [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar implied heavily.]][[/note]] This is an especially jarring example, because Jiraiya is actually a very wealthy man, yet [[KickTheDog he stole Naruto's money to fund his vices]] (and Naruto is very poor.)
* Rod Ross' {{Mafia}} gang in ''Manga/DeathNote'' were involved with selling drugs, and had a steady string of women implied to be prostitutes snuggling up with the higher-ups (except Mello, who wasn't interested.)

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In the indie comic ''Pirate Corp$'', two characters on their way into a Mega Mart jokingly yell "ALL THE WHORES AND OPIUM WE CAN CARRY!"
* In the ''ComicBook/EarthX'' trilogy, it's implied in ''Paradise X'' that this is [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Johnny Storm's]] ideal afterlife.
* In the ''[[Series/{{Firefly}} Serenity: Better Days]]'' miniseries, the crew steals a fortune. The book contains DaydreamSurprise panels showing what each person says they'll do with their share. Zoe and Wash [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming buy a cruise ship and raise a family on it]], Kaylee opens an engine part shop that stocks entirely [[ContinuityNod compression coils]]. River does... [[http://fandomania.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/serenity2-003.jpg something interesting]], etc. When they get to the Shepherd's, [[http://fandomania.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/serenity2-002.jpg it's not exactly what one would expect from a man of God.]] After seeing the crew's shocked looks, he explains that he was joking.
* As evidenced by the quote page, the better-off characters in ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}'' much prefer this lifestyle. Heck, it's easier to count the pages where Spider isn't on drugs, hard for him to get laid though, while his filthy assistants have been known to order gigolos.
* Comicbook/{{X 23}}'s pimp, Zebra Daddy, in ''ComicBook/{{NYX}}'' is a drug dealer and sex trafficker in the [[BigRottenApple Flat-Iron District]]. The book establishes that he samples both his products.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* A common trait amongst Creator/MartinScorsese's movies:
** ''Film/{{Goodfellas}}''. Henry Hill is portrayed as having various mistresses and, towards the end of the film when he's become a large-scale drug dealer, as having degenerated through [[GettingHighOnTheirOwnSupply getting high on his own supply]].
** ''Film/{{Casino}}''. In his voiceover, Ace Rothstein comments that Nicky Santoro and his crew became careless and sloppy through booze, "broads" and coke. The latter is illustrated by a famous shot from inside a giant straw hoovering up a line of Bolivia's finest.
** ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'', when they aren't fighting.
** Early in ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet'', Jordan's boss recommends a steady dose of "cocaine and hookers" as necessary for a successful Wall Street career. The remainder of the film more than delivers.
* ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' pretty much runs on this trope, given the nature of Tony Montana's work and...leisure activities.
* Used in ''Film/LordOfWar'' - though, mostly, secondhand. After a particularly bad bit of business, the eponymous gun-runner's brother and business-partner runs away, and is later found in a hotel-room having made a map of Ukraine out of cocaine, while two hookers lie passed out on his bed. Yuri Orlov himself also does an occasional line of coke, but never to the point of addiction.
* Charlie Wilson (a Member of Congress from Texas), in ''Film/CharlieWilsonsWar''. He's indicted and later acquitted of doing cocaine with strippers and a playboy model in Vegas. In RealLife he was known for his laid-back ways and liberal social views (and lifestyle--hey, it was TheSeventies!) before he latched on to the UsefulNotes/SovietInvasionOfAfghanistan as a worthwhile pet issue.
* ''Franchise/RoboCop'':
** In ''Film/{{RoboCop|1987}}'', OCP executive Bob Morton is seen doing cocaine with ALadyOnEachArm shortly before getting blown up in his house. The assassin in question tells the ladies to leave first, though.
** In the sequel ''Film/RoboCop2'', the baddies include an organization that seems to be a hybrid illegal drug manufacturer and religious cult.
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', though these ''are'' pirates we're talking about here.
* Jimmy, the dwarf actor from ''Film/InBruges'', makes good use of these in his free time. He's not rich or famous, but he's not a nice person either.
* Part of Brian Slade's downfall in ''Film/VelvetGoldmine''; he even gets a shot doing the standard snorting-blow-off-a-groupie's-ass technique.
* ''Suite 16'' revolves around an Amsterdam hustler who, after breaking into a hotel suite occupied by a rather depraved paraplegic man, agrees to act as the other man's proxy by indulging in all the tastes the other man used to indulge in (but now no longer can) while the other man watches him on a hidden network of cameras. At one point this involves a [[SexMontage montage]] of the hustler having vigorous coked-up sex with a number of oblivious attractive women.
* ''Film/AmericanPsycho'' rolls in this like a pig in slop.
* ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'''s version of Sean Parker really enjoys partying with drugs and girls who may or may not be underage; the cops eventually catch him about to snort cocaine off a sorority girl. The rest of the Facebook team (with the possible exception of Eduardo Saverin) gets a certain amount of this too, although even Eduardo uses Christy for sex.
* In ''Film/SmokinAces'', mobster and magician (no, seriously) Buddy "Aces" Israel, is shown ankle-deep in hookers and cocaine as he hides out in a Lake Tahoe hotel waiting for his lawyer to agree a deal with the authorities for Israel to inform on other Mafiosi in exchange for his freedom. WordOfGod has it that the character was inspired by Frank Sinatra's dealings with the Mafia, so it may be that Israel's lifestyle was informed by Sinatra's, which featured lots of hookers (but no blow).
* In ''Film/VeryBadThings'', hookers and blow (or, more specifically, ''a'' hooker and blow) at the bachelor party is what kick starts the PlethoraOfMistakes that drives the plot.
* In ''Film/BadLieutenantPortOfCallNewOrleans'', the DirtyCop protagonist has a HookerWithAHeartOfGold for a girlfriend, uses his position to extort sex, and spends the entire movie high on Vicodin, heroin, marijuana, crack cocaine, regular cocaine, or more than one of those at once.
* In ''Film/HorribleBosses'', Kurt's boss Bobby is a cokehead who brings prostitutes to work and has them at his house (one of which is a man).
* In ''Film/PainAndGain'', Paul during his addiction to cocaine does this with Sorina as the hooker.
* This is the lowlife villain's idea of the perfect Easter party in ''Film/EasterBunnyKillKill''.
* A hooker snorts drugs off her client's penis in ''Hanger''.
* Noburo Mori in ''Film/TheWolverine''. Okay, just hookers, but the principle is there.
* ''Film/{{Underground}}'' has the UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 Serbian gunrunners Marko and Blacky supplying the Communist resistance with their weapons, but using the money purely on booze and hookers.
* In ''Film/{{Downfall}}'', after Hermann Fegalein, Eva Braun's brother in-law, is tracked down to be executed for abandoning his post during the battle of Berlin, he's found in a hotel used by [[ScrewTheWarWerePartying soldiers and civilians throwing a wild party.]] The room he's occupying he shares with a nude woman, has booze bottles strewn about, and there are several lines of cocaine on a nearby dresser.

* Creator/BretEastonEllis and the rest of the 1980's "Brat Pack" of young authors write/wrote frequently about extremely decadent characters. Ellis in particular takes this UpToEleven, portraying his characters (especially [[Literature/AmericanPsycho Patrick Bateman]]) as decadent to point of making [[TheCaligula Caligula]] look prudish.
* In the Lorenzo Carcaterra novel ''Sleepers'', one of the guards from the reformatory later becomes a crooked cop and it is strongly implied that womanizing and snorting coke are his primary pasttimes.
* In ''Literature/LayerCake'', the protagonist, a cocaine dealer, generally restricts his use of the drug to as an "aphrodisiac" and mentions attracting female partners with the appeal of high quality cocaine. His associate [[ScaryBlackMan Morty]] pretty much has this as his hobby.
* ''Literature/WickedLovely'': The Dark Court likes to do this by their very nature as the "court of temptation."
* Lord Iron from "Literature/TheCambistAndLordIron" has this reputation.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{Workaholics}}'' the characters are often drinking heavily and smoking pot, but tend to avoid hard drugs. In the episode "High Art" however, Ders and Adam have a night where they're given cocaine, and then spend the next day doing more cocaine and setting American flags on fire as they try to make one unburnable.
* Charlie on ''Series/{{Lost}}'' falls into this in flashbacks. Before that he was a good Catholic boy who just wanted to make some music.
* Happens in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' to an ''angel'' no less. Dean is flung a few years into the future to see the outcome of his choice of action. [[spoiler:They lost.]] Castiel is seen arranging orgies and doing drugs like there's no tomorrow. [[spoiler:Because there might not be. He's also been turned mortal.]]
* Played with in one episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' that featured the main patient purchasing cocaine from a drug dealer... in his sleep. His very specific form of somnambulism turns out to be one of the clues to what ails him, rather than a specific fall from grace. During that same scene, Thirteen is shown to know her blow, to the surprise of her partner in investigation.
* Not exactly blow, but "Hey, now!" Hank Kingsley in ''Series/TheLarrySandersShow'' has been known to sooth his troubles through boozed-up sex marathons with prostitutes when the going gets tough.
* Following his father's death, Hank Moody of ''Series/{{Californication}}'' goes on a bigger bender than usual, finally crossing 'snort cocaine directly off a hooker' off his to-do list. Also Lew Ashby on season two would literally die after spending the wrong moment with, you guessed it, hookers and blow. Also Atticus Fetch on season six was pretty well in touch with this trope.
* ''Series/RealTimeWithBillMaher'' -- "Be More Cynical"
-->'''Bill Maher:''' George Bush's policy in South America was "crop replacement": Instead of growing cocaine, they should grow bananas and chrysanthemums. I don't know if you've ever tried to lure a stripper to your hotel room with a banana and a chrysanthemum, but let me tell you folks -- It's slow going.
* In one episode of ''Series/DeadLikeMe'', Daisy says something about Mason having snorted "blow off a dead hooker's stomach". He doesn't deny it and basically gets a look about him as if he doesn't wish to incriminate himself.
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. After a year in office, President Baltar is shown surrounded by bottles of pills and attractive female "interns" dressed in lingerie, signifying the corruption and incompetence of his administration.
* ''Series/TheColbertReport'':
** Invoked by Representative Robert Wexler at the 4:15 minute mark of [[http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/72021/july-20-2006/better-know-a-district---florida-s-19th---robert-wexler this clip]] when asked to say something that would lose him his upcoming election ([[ItMakesSenseinContext he was uncontested]]). This was [[CompletelyMissingThePoint inexplicably]] cited by actual journalists as an example of why politicians should be wary of going on the ''Report'' (and by extension ''Series/TheDailyShow''), as if Wexler had been the victim of ManipulativeEditing. Colbert asked him ''on camera, in character'' to say that he liked cocaine and hookers. [[DontExplainTheJoke That was the joke.]] In a rare example of Colbert going "out of character" as it were, he took the time to call out the media for essentially doing exactly what they were accusing him of doing.
** In another episode, he asked Congressman Dan Maffei (playing his own EvilTwin) to finish the following sentences: "I enjoy cocaine because..." and "I enjoy the company of prostitutes for the following reasons..."
* Chuck Bass after being dumped by Blair Waldorf on ''Series/GossipGirl''.
* Referenced in ''Series/{{Utopia}}'' as one of disgraced scientist Donaldson's vices.
* At least one episode of ''Series/{{Satisfaction}}'', which focusses on a group of Melbourne {{High Class Call Girl}}s, depicted this trope from the prostitute's point of view after one of them was hired to spend an evening with a booze-and-drugged up rock star.
* ''Series/PeakyBlinders'': Episode 2.04 has Arthur taking a bath (after [[spoiler:taking over Sabini's club]]) with two prostitutes, and he snorts lines of cocaine off the rim of the tub. All the more remarkable for being set in 1922.
* ''Series/LawAndOrder'' once had a (male) murder suspect's alibi turn out to be this. Offers a mild deconstruction, in that cocaine's RealLife tendency to interfere with the ability to sexually perform meant that several prostitutes had to be called in, thereby giving the man a surprisingly airtight alibi.

* "2 Hookers and an 8 ball" by Music/MindlessSelfIndulgence; the name should make it pretty clear.
* The music video for Music/TheProdigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" includes the main protagonist, from whose eyes we see the action of the video unfold, eventually pick up a stripper and 'party' with her in this fashion. [[spoiler:In a rare example of a gender inversion of this trope, the protagonist is eventually revealed to be a woman.]]
* The Song ''Wenches And Mead'' By Music/{{Alestorm}} celebrates this particular lifestyle choice:
-->''When I come back from a mighty quest\\
I have no need for sleep or rest\\
I head to a tavern for a drink\\
And get so drunk I cannot think\\
A wench by my side, a jug of mead\\
These are the things that I most need\\
So I sit back and sing this song\\
And drink and party all night long''
* In Music/{{Cage}}'s "Grand Ol' Party Crash", this is partly how we know that [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush The Dubya]] (voiced by [[Music/DeadKennedys Jello Biafra]]) has fallen from grace.
* The music video for the Turisas cover of ''Rasputin'' has one of the singers in such a position, dressed in full pimp gear.
* GlamRap usually features this, or implies that this is the source of the speaker's wealth.
* "Slow Down" by Brand Nubian is a WhatTheHellHero, directed at the speaker's ex-girlfriend. She became addicted to crack cocaine at some point in the relationship after experimenting with "gateway drugs." When her addiction got out of control, and she was stealing his money and selling his possessions (like his new sneakers) to get crack money, the speaker broke up with her. He is shocked at the number her addiction has done on her looks and personality...and the fact that she has been selling her body for crack money.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'':
** The Green Sun Princes (who are often referred to as the [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll rock stars of Hell]]) are often said to be partially kept in line by their Yozi masters with the equivalent of demon hookers and blow (the other part being by their [[MoreThanMindControl Urge]] and [[RestrainingBolt Torment]]). It's been noted that this is pretty ineffective in the long run; even if a Prince ''is'' primarily motivated by Hookers and Blow, they'll eventually realize that they can easily acquire it for themselves.
** Also a common result of associating with the Guild.
** [[AdiposeRex Sesus Naghezzar]] is also widely known for this as the ultimate mark of his hedonism. Or rather, widely supplies such proclivities in the rest of the Scarlet Dynasty to secure his own powerbase (he still indulges, but not as severely as his image suggests he does; it's used to help people underestimate him).
** A certain iconic Solar character had this as in his backstory. [[TheAtoner In fact, his abandoning of that lifestyle was the reason he was exalted; into a priestly class at that.]]
** A certain Sidereal charm (a charm is a magic power) allows him or her to avoid official summons (and thus avoiding intrigues he or she's not interested to be entangled in)... as long as he or she spend most of his or her days drowning in orgy. {{Squick}}.
* Daemon Prince Doomrider of Slaneesh, from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' (specifically its earlier editions), was basically this trope taken to the absolute highest Grimdark levels, with an equal dose of DrivesLikeCrazy. Now with [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Doomrider more song!]]
-->''Son of Slaanesh, full of desire, [[RichardPryor He does cocaine and his head's on fire]]!\\
Doom rider.\\
Na na, na na.''

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Shows up in the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' games. Trevor from ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV GTA5]]'' appears to be the deconstruction of this concept. He's a successful bank robber who earned wealth by scoring big in the heist game but by throwing away his money on the aforementioned Hookers And Blow (he's definitely a meth addict and his personality suggests he probably pays for sex on top of it), he's relegated himself to a rather pathetic existence by the time the events of the game roll around (stuck in the middle of a dusty nowhere town living in a disgusting trailer).
* When the Avatar is in the dream realm in ''VideoGame/UltimaVIIPartII: Serpent Isle'', he comes across Stefano, who is sitting on a throne surrounded by naked women (some of whom are playing tag). After discussing plot points with the Avatar, Stefano tells him/her to lighten up. If you have a ranged weapon you can kill his dream form and force him to wake up; he is not amused.
* A RealLife video-game example in which the lead producer of ''Ant Simulator'' [[http://www.gamewatcher.com/news/2016-01-02-ant-simulator-cancelled-after-business-partners-spend-crowdfunding-money-on-booze-and-strippers found out]] his partners were using Kickstarter funds for, among other things, booze and strippers.

* Referenced in the WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation review of ''Mafia 2'', where he snarkily lays out the typical plot of a story about the Mafia.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/PvP'' [[http://www.pvponline.com/1999/11/11/ referenced this during a D&D session when the party was rewarded]]. It later got put [[http://www.pvponline.com/2008/05/22/ale-and-whores-return/ on a T-shirt]].
-->'''Brent:''' Yeehah! I buy my third level spells!\\
'''Francis:''' I buy myself matching bronze daggers.\\
'''Jade:''' I guess I'll just repair my bow.\\
'''Skull the Troll:''' Despite the fact that my weapons and armor are in desperate need of repair, I blow the entire reward on ale and whores. ...What? I'm trying my best to roleplay a non-monster.\\
'''Jade:''' No, no. I'm just shocked by the total accuracy of your portrayal.
* In ''Webcomic/WizardSchool'', Graham complains that the magical academy [[http://www.meetmyminion.com/?p=1311 "blows. And not in a good way, like hookers or cocaine."]]

* Internet comedy duo WebVideo/{{Britanick}} have a hilarious short video called [[http://www.youtube.com/user/BriTANicKdotcom#p/u/8/lzphtZoN350 "Taint Monopoly"]] where Nick calls Brian, asking him if there's going to be cocaine at his party. Brian response of course not, to which Nick wonders what they're going to do with the "girls" ...
* Spoofed in ''Website/TheOnion'' article "[[http://www.theonion.com/articles/macarthur-genius-grant-goes-right-up-recipients-no,4248/ Mac Arthur Genius Grant Goes Right Up Recipient's Nose]]":
-->"As soon as that first check arrived, Kim was on the phone with his dealer, and two hours later, he was in a hot tub full of strippers."
* This trope will sometimes come up in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's show. In what is a nice change, though, he doesn't act like there's only female prostitutes and realizes how difficult it is to get out of that life.
-->'''Buzz The Bee:''' Maybe I can tempt you with the delicious taste of honey and nuts?\\
'''Nostalgia Critic:''' Did you say Hookers and Blow?
* WebVideo/BennettTheSage invokes this as a joke regarding ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'''s status as a CashCowFranchise for ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz'' as a little girl asked why there's still war, Bennett for a skit as her grandfather said "Because Creator/{{Bandai}} needs that coke and whore money," before Bennett!Grandpa corrects himself and added "I mean, milk and cookies money."

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** The episode "The Thin White Line" has Brian accidentally becoming addicted to cocaine. Next thing you know he's introducing the family to his "girlfriend" -- a bony, washed-up prostitute.
** In another episode, a commercial parody for ''Samuel Adams Boston Lager'' features three businessmen having lunch. One orders a Sam Adams, and the others remind him of his outstanding [=DUIs=], but he insists he needs something to wash away the taste of weed and hooker-spit. [[NotSoDifferent One of the other businessmen then changes his order to a Sam Adams as well]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'', the band tricks Rock N' Roll Clown Dr. Rockzo ([[CatchPhrase he does cocaine]]) into coming to an intervention by promising him [[http://video.adultswim.com/metalocalypse/rockzos-intervention.html "hookers and ice ka-ka-ka-ka-ka reeeeeam!"]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' this sums up Sterling Archer's hobbies in his spare time -- and sometimes on the job as a secret agent. It's constant enough that his {{beleaguered|Assistant}} butler Woodhouse claims he has repeatedly given Archer a TapOnTheHead and passed it off as Archer having an accident born of intoxication and prostitutes.
* ''{{Brickleberry}}'' had Smokey The Bear, a DepravedKidsShowHost (and Steve's childhood hero), who turns out to be an alcoholic drug-addict who sleeps with anything that moves, and ends up getting Steve addicted to crack and sleeps with Ethel (who Steve is in love with) before dying of a heart attack.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' have no less than ''three'' characters who embrace this trope.
** First of, Roger, the Smith family alien. Though he's mostly TheAlcoholic, he's an unabashed hedonist who does drugs whenever the opportunity arises, and occasionally indulges in weird sex (despite not having human genitals).
** Director Bullock, the local chief of the CIA, is a depraved drug addict who indulges in every vice imaginable to deal with the stress of his job. He favors chubby asian callgirls.
** Finally, Principal Lewis, who's not only an open drug addict, he used to run cocaine for Noriega, and at one point, wishes that he was back in that job.
