- "Well, after fifteen years in a pleasure house, I imagine just seeing the sky makes you happy."
- ―Viserys Targaryen
A pleasure house is an establishment in Essos similar to a brothel. Instead of prostitutes that have chosen this life as a means to survive, pleasure houses usually employ bedslaves, slaves trained in the "arts of love" and forced to perform sexual acts for the gain of their owners.
Petyr Baelish mocks Renly Baratheon in naming a list of things he could buy with the amount of gold he will win in the bet against Renly in the tourney of Ser Loras Tyrell and Ser Gregor Clegane, naming a girl from the pleasure houses of Lys being among them.
