Concept and Introduction
Simon Scans is a site that offers you exquisite, high quality photographs and videos of beautiful British amateur girls posing, teasing and masturbating in solo hardcore scenarios. The site uses "the best equipment" to make this content and it shows.
Simon Scans is all about quality. They are downright obsessed with it, which is why they only shoot material with the best equipment and use every trick and skill learned over the last 10 years of their work in the industry to make sure every image, every moment of video is flawless. They succeed quite admirably in all that they've done here, which in my opinion started not with the cameras they chose, but the models they picked out to work with. All of them are beautiful, though they come in all flavors and types. Most are thin, healthy, natural UK amateurs with nice breasts, smooth skin and cute smiles. Real beauty is clearly a requirement, something rare in an industry where how much silicon is pumped into a girl's tits tends to be the measure on which they're judged and selected.
They don't cut corners or make exceptions when seeking the perfect models for shoots or for catering to their members' varied tastes, and they don't cut corners in production either. Settings are varied and well thought out. Lighting is managed to perfection. Everything they do only makes these girls look even more desirable, shapely and beautiful. Most sets will just be of girls posing and stripping out of various outfits, lingerie, kinky costumes and the like. You'll get soft masturbation and some close-ups to look through as well, but in general this is a classy erotica site, not a raunchy hardcore site.
Simon Scans offers both videos and photo pictorials, though the latter seems to be where they put the most energy. That isn't to say the videos aren't amazing. You can download them in three formats: Windows Media files that have a 1280x720 resolution and a 6.55 m/bits rate (true 720p HD); QuickTime files that also have a 1280x720 resolution but a slightly lower bitrate of 4.92 m/bits; and MPG files that are smaller files but have smaller resolutions of 640x360 and play at 2.44 m/bits. All options look good thanks to great camera work and lighting but obviously the 720p HD formatted movies will look best. You can also stream the movies in a large and very high quality Flash video player.
Photo galleries are where the site really shines, at least in my opinion. Fans of this sort of nude erotica that borders on art tend to gravitate towards the galleries as they should here. Pictures are large at resolutions of 1236x1853 pixels. The arrangement and compositions are fantastic. You can browse through images online or download entire sets in zip files.
Small Talk and Personal Opinion
Simon Scans is an excellent site. It underwent a rather extensive redesign last year and is much better off for it, though I think it has a few kinks in it still. Sometimes the search function doesn't work too well for me, especially when hunting for videos. Still, the site is well organized and has many options to take advantage of. You're able to browse updates or by model. Girls have their own pages on which all of their sets and videos are listed, so when you start establishing favorites, which you undoubtedly will, you can quickly access their other content.
What is most remarkable about this site is its quality, though. There are only a handful of other sites that come close to rivaling the quality of photography and the formats that are offered for users to enjoy it in. It's a very solid photography/softcore site with glamour instincts and one that is impossible not to enjoy. On top of all this, it's run by a very honest company that makes it easy to avoid any billing problems. That's perhaps the most rare and most precious asset of all: a site you can trust.
Simon Scans is a solid site with great content, beautiful UK amateur girls and a delicious variety of settings, costumes, body types and beauty. With state-of-the-art downloads and web-based tools to make finding and enjoying the content a breeze it is by far one of the best sites in the nude photography/erotic photography niche. Before you sign up anywhere else, make sure you visit Simon first. You won't regret it.
