* It's mentioned in one of the AubreyMaturin books that Stephen Maturin stayed in one of the brothels in Jakarta, where the ship is docked on a diplomatic mission, because it was simply the cheapest place to stay, not to mention convenient for carrying out [[TheSpymaster his trade]]. The girl he shares the bed with is only initially surprised that he's not interested in sex. The crew of the ship, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny naturally]], don't know about his job as Britain's premier spy and come to the obvious conclusion about his, er, stamina and prowess.

* In ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', Carrot is staying at a brothel. He has no idea of his home's true nature. He also misses the point when he tells this to someone else, and they are impressed that he can afford it, and by his stamina.

* In ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', Carrot is staying at a brothel. He has no idea of his home's true nature. He also misses the point when he tells this to someone else, and they are impressed that he can afford it, and by his stamina. They don't charge him rent in exchange for his services as bouncer, which he also doesn't quite grasp. The offer included access to the place's usual services too, and it seems like the owners never quite figured out that he wasn't just being a gentleman in not taking advantage.
