So much carnal knowledge is on display in Game of Thrones, HBO’s hit swords and sandals fantasy series, that the show inspired media critics to coin the term sexposition—providing plot exposition mid-humping.
But this may be a bit too kinky…even for the Seven Kingdoms.
On the evening of April 5, an anonymous person claiming to be a 25-year-old woman in New Orleans posted a ridiculously funny Game of Thrones-themed query on the Casual Encounters section of Craigslist. Under the headline “Seeking Robb Stark Look-alike from GoT,” the “woman” claimed she recently purchased a replica of the show’s Iron Throne and was seeking a male partner to help act out an “elaborate” sex fantasy in which she, dressed as “Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen, Mother of Dragons,” makes “wild and passionate love” on it with a man portraying Robb Stark, another of the show’s characters.

Daenerys Targaryen, the platinum blonde beauty played by Emilia Clarke, has emerged as one of the show’s more crush-worthy characters. Her fanbase is so rabid that the Broadway show Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which stars Clarke, was recently forced to beef up security because randy Thrones fans were breaking out their camera-phones and snapping pictures of the actress’s nude scenes in the play.
And the third season premiere of Game of Thrones broke ratings records, delivering a series-high 4.4 million viewers for its 9 p.m. showing and a total of 6.7 million overall counting the night’s two replays—despite airing on Easter Sunday and despite more than 1 million people screening pirated copies, according to ABC News. Meanwhile, life-size replicas of the Iron Throne, made of fiberglass, are available on the show’s website for a hefty $30,000.
The Craigslist poster’s fantasy does stray a bit from the show’s plot, however, as Daenerys is a widow and Robb Stark (Richard Madden), King of the North and lord of House Stark, recently wed a Volantene noblewoman-healer by the name of Talisa Maegyr (Oona Chaplin), in secret. Perhaps it would’ve made a bit more sense for the man in the sexcapade to be playing Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), exiled knight and sworn protector of Daenerys who is hopelessly in love with her.
“You will need to provide your own clothing,” the post says. “Please keep in mind that you will have recently participated in a battle and been thrown in a dungeon, so you will not be wearing your nicest furs. I’m looking for a Stark in the streets but a wildling in the sheets.”
