    Big Sister is for all intents and purposes, an upscale brothel in Prague though one that easily separates itself from the many that can be found here. For a remarkably modest fee (one much lower than you might expect) men are able to walk through the doors and enjoy the wonders that await from inside. The catch is that, having signed a release form accepting the establishment’s terms and conditions, all their exploits are recorded and broadcast live for the website’s subscribers who number in the tens of thousands and watch religiously. Guests are afforded the chance, in other words, to become instant cyber celebrities, albeit of an altogether adult nature.
