Game Of Thrones (GOT) S01 E07
Sexposition: Petyr Baelish explains his character's childhood and goals to two actresses who are simulating sexual activity.
Littlefinger instructs the newly-arrived Ros and another prostitute, Armeca, on how to please their customers and make them happy.
Littlefinger advised Ros that her clients will know she is a prostitute, and won't be swayed by easy manipulations. Rather, the trick is to very slowly convince the client that he really is something special, that he truly has impressed her and wooed her devotion. In parallel, Ned Stark knew from the beginning that Littlefinger was a manipulative courtier, but Baelish "seduced" Ned's trust by slowly convincing him that he had appealed to Baelish's "good side", that Ned's superior honor had truly convinced Baelish to do the "right thing", even as he was mechanistically plotting to betray Ned.

-What she doesn't know won't hurt her
-A stupid saying, what we don't know is usually what gets us killed"
