Sex workers at Sheri’s Ranch – a legal brothel in Nevada – has revealed booming trade in the wake of the hit show on HBO.
The fantasy drama charting the political games of Westeros has been credited with having a “considerable and positive” impact on the brothel’s business.
Clients even come seeking themed orgies with sex workers dressed up as the characters from Game of Thrones.
Dena, the madam, believes the brothel’s trade has been aided by the the character of Petyr Baelish.
Littleflnger is regularly seen scheming in the bordellos which he runs in the fantasy world’s capital King’s Landing.
The madam described it as a “godsend” to have a brothel in such a prominent position in a mainstream show.
“Watching the show was sometimes like an advertisement for brothels. ”
Dena said: “We noticed in late 2011 that searches to our website for terms like ‘brothel’ began to increase significantly, and there was no way to account for the prominence of the term other than its relation to Game of Thrones.
“Game of Thrones inadvertently assisted in promoting legal brothels like Sheri’s Ranch not only by having Littlefinger’s brothels as settings for the action, but also by showcasing some of the hottest couplings, threesomes and orgies ever depicted onscreen.
“Watching the show was sometimes like an advertisement for brothels.
“You watch the brothel scenes in Game of Thrones and you say ‘I want to go to a sexy place like that and do those sexy things with sexy people’.”
She added: “It’s the most successful television programme of its age.
“It features a brothel as one of its primary settings, particularly in the earlier seasons on the show.
“To have a brothel so prominently featured in a pop culture hit was a godsend for us.”
Sex workers have said having brothels and prostitution so prominent in show empowered clients to seek out their fantasies.
Sex worker Sky said: “While clients certainly do request sessions, particularly orgies, in which the ladies dress up as Game of Thrones characters – Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark of course being the most popular character requests – role play inquiries related to Game of Thrones more often entail a BDSM element.”
She added Thrones fans often feel inspired by scenes such as the torture of Theon Greyjoy and Cersi Lannister’s walk of shame, seeking out “submissive” role-play with a safe word.
And her colleague Allissa added: “Game of Thrones is a fantasy for adults, and adults often like to live out their fantasies and explore their kinks and fetishes through role play.
“Without a doubt, Games of Thrones introduced the courtesans and clients of Sheri’s to a whole new realm of role play possibilities.”
Dena said: “The imaginative world of Game of Thrones will forever be a part of our shared culture and its impact on various industries, including the sex industry, cannot be overstated.
“With this season marking the end of the series, it’s disheartening that soon we won’t have any new Game of Thrones related fetishes for our clients to discover and explore here at our real-life brothel.”
Game of Thrones’ final season will begin on April 14 with six episodes charting the last chapter in the saga.
It is setting up a final battle between the living and dead as Westeros is menaced by the villainous Night King.
