PRAGUE — On a recent night at Big Sister, which calls itself the world's biggest Internet brothel, a middle-aged man selected a prostitute from an electronic menu on a flat-screen television, pressing his index finger against it to review the age, hair color, weight and languages spoken by the women on offer. Once he had chosen an year-old brunette, he put on a mandatory burgundy terry cloth robe and proceeded to one of the brothel's luridly-lit theme rooms, an Alpine suite decorated with foam rubber mountains covered with fake snow. Nearby, in the brothel's cramped control room, two young technicians used joysticks to control the dozens of hidden cameras that would film his performance and stream it, live, on Big Sister's Internet site. Sex is free at Big Sister, but that is not cheap enough for some men. Customers get the cut rate in return for signing a release form that allows the brothel to film their sexual exploits. Even with this financial incentive, Big Sister's marketing manager, Carl Borowitz, 26, a Moravian computer engineer, lamented that the global financial crisis had diminished the number of sex tourists in Prague.

We had thought reality TV couldn't sink any lower, couldn't get any sleazier While shows such as "Big Brother" show humanity at its worst, with jealousy, pettiness, and rudeness being the norm, a new type of reality programming has popped up in Prague : Big Sister. However, don't expect this program to appear on network TV; in fact, in order to watch it, you have to pay That's because the show takes place in the most unlikely of settings: a brothel. Yes, count on the city with a Sex Machines Museum to invent the first reality pornography! If the reality TV revolution brought us the concept of watching ordinary people instead of actors and celebrities, the concept of reality porn just takes that further; for 30 Euros a month, one can watch ordinary people instead of porn stars!
