Reality TV

"Big Brother" meets "Sex in the City": A brothel in Prague peddles its wares for free - with one hitch: gentlemen seeking its services must agree to having a recording of their fun posted online. Men are flocking to the locale, one explaining, "'It's a different concept,' Nick says later, as he leaves his details so the brothel can mail him complimentary DVDs of his performance. 'It's what the people want, to see normal people.'" It's the new normal!

Coming soon to HBO? I guess it would all depend on the ratings potential...

The old adage about things coming full-circle applies: Scratching for cultural tokens, mainstream entertainment "borrowed" several themes from a flourishing pornography industry, including voyeurism. It is fairly predictable. Without barriers, many paraphilias have become and will become mainstream.

You said it sister... Or is it brother?

I've long speculated that filming these encounters would create a First Amendment loophole for an enterprising American bordello wanting to avoid existing law.

Johns aren't patronizing prostitutes, they're porn stars paying for the recording!

Pat, you're killing me.

Prague, prostitutes. I can't touch the link. I have to keep my virgin memories of St. Charles Bridge in 1992 pure..
