Here is my best explanation:

'brother ?' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'shocking extremes of lewdness in big' is the wordplay.
'shocking' is an anagram indicator (I've seen this in other clues).
'extremes of' means to remove the middle letters.
'lewdness' with its centre removed is 'ls'.
'ls'+'in'+'big'='lsinbig'
'lsinbig' anagrammed gives 'SIBLING'.
