What the hell, seriously, not only did they stop having video updates but they REMOVED all the videos they had on the site. What a genius idea, let's give people LESS content. Let's get rid of all the stuff we already shot, yeah brilliant!
I hadn't browsed on this site in a while and I was very surprised to find that it seems they've taken down all the video content from the site in the past month or so (Sept/Oct '14). I'd always thought of this site as much more of a photography site anyway, but did they really do away with ALL their video content?
Although the site didn't have a lot of videos, at least compared with most other sites, virtually all of the videos were wickedly hot. Wildly uninhibited performances by well-known stars like Eufrat and Carmen Gemini as well as girl-next-door types, all of whom looked like they truly enjoyed showing themselves at their nastiest for the camera. Too bad that now seems to all be gone. I never got around to actually joining but now I know I definitely won't. Most of the appeal for me went away when they took down the videos.
Actually, reading some of the other comments esp. regarding all the potential malware associated with this site, I'm glad I didn't.
Maybe if they bring back the videos AND do something about the malware problems, I would finally get around to joining.
I was gonna join this site but on the join up page my anti-virus software went off like crazy, blocked 4 viruses! 2 trojan horses, a worm, and a spyware app. Don't think I'll be joining this site, and that's a shame 'cause they have really good content. No wonder PU dropped them.

Huge collection of photos going back over a decade.
Most of the girls are very attractive and can not be found on other websites.
For fans of cute girl next door british amateurs, Simon's earlier work is unmatched.
In the last several years, the type of girls found on the site has shifted radically. Less cute british amateurs, more Eastern European, or Spanish babe types in glamour photos.
Many of the photos are oversaturated (Too much red).
Several years ago Simons Scans was one of my two favorite amateur sites, alongside Abby Winters. Simon used to feature numerous never before seen cute british amateurs photographed beautifully. How the times have changed. Now most of the girls are from other countries and the style of photography is less amateur and more glamour. This may or may not be a positive depending on your tastes. A few years back I posed a question to Simon as to the reason for the declining numbers of british girls on his site and he replied they are getting harder to get. My hunch is they were more expensive and he decided to go where labor is cheaper. Here is my bottom line advice. If you are a fan of cute looking british amateur photos, and have never subscribed to Simons Scans, I would highly recommend the site for the older collection which is very substantial. On the other hand, if you are a former member looking to see some new content of british amateurs, I would not recommend you do so. Even if you have been away for 2-3 years. It's not worth it! For fans of babe type girls in glamour photos, you should find enough content 4-5 years to justify the subscription price.
Am I the only one having trouble with the video downloads from this site? They STICK. If I try to jump ahead I get a 5 to 10 second pause until the video resumes. I've tried MOV, MPG and WMV in several different players and they all stick. Am I missing a codec? This site used to be a great, great site, but now the videos are fewer in number and the site is a real headache to use.
I, too, have had major problems with this site blocking me after loyally letting them take my money. Fact is, I truly love this site but over my being a subscriber off and on for over a total of three years, now I constantly get blocked, send an inquiry and maybe, maybe two weeks later get a reply to change my password. I have sent three different e-mails in the past two weeks asking what it will take to fix these problems, and have not heard anything again this time. I was blocked one time and accused of sharing my password with someone in Turkey (couldn't point it out to you on a map) I also saw in passing one time some stated problems with the 'sbcglobal.net/ATT' thing. I have inquired about that THREE times with no answer. Of course it easy to state that I have never shared passwords, but truth is, I never have and do not see any advantage of doing so. The last time I joined and subsequently blocked, I tried to minimize my time on the site (browse less than 20 mins or so)and it only took 9 days before I was blocked. I sent four inquiries in and heard nothing and finally contacted CCBill, and they just offered a refund. Again, I love this site and would give anything to enjoy it hassle free, but somehow it always ends up to seemingly being my fault. I see where Simon replies here and wants to clear his name when someone disparages the site...well, I'm here to clear my name and say that I have NEVER done anything that I was accused of doing to be blocked from this site. I just wish that when a problem arises that someone at Simonscans would actually work with someone to figure why this problem arises, instead of being accused of something that I did not EVER do.
I keep reading in lots of areas that MANY other subscribers to this site have the same problem I do; gets blocked, doesn't know why, e-mails Customer Service and when and if you receive a reply, it's to block you and accuse you of something you haven't done. Simon you seem to have a popular site, and have you ever thought that hackers work on your end to get our info?
So Simon, how do you treat someone who truly would love to be a subscriber to your site, pay you gladly each month, and enjoy the site hassle free? Over the time length of your site I have paid well over a thousand bucks and would stay a member forever, if we would quit having constant blocking/customer service problems.
I'll gladly tell people how great the content of the site is, and how good the site really is, but when constant Customer Service problems appear, it all goes South.
Restore my faith Simon, what can we do to get to the hassle free point?
I joined this site on Sat. May 8, 2010 using ccbill payment system at $19.95. I received confirmation email from ccbill and I started to navigate the site. But The (( http://www.simonscans.com )) site administrator keep changing my password every 6 hours without any permission or request from me as customer. I sent email to Simonscans site asked them to stop changing the password. But instead of supporting me they take my money, they never reply to my emails and they blocked my IP address so I cannot even enter the site. I put and write this comment here to WARNING you OR as message informing of danger to subscribing to this site. NOW the status is : I cannot enter the site where, the site administrator blocked my IP address because I asked them to stop changing my password ( which is my right)and at the same time I cannot get my moneu back. BE CARFULL TO SUBSCRIBE TO THIS SITE. This site is not honest
Beware of Billing Scams / Non-Existent Communication
My girlfriend wanted to try this site, and would liked to have signed up using CCBill.
On the site's FAQ page at - http://www.simonscans.com/pages/faqs/ - it clearly states there are three main systems for joining, and CCBill is one of them, but on the sign-up form itself CCBill is never given as an option. She E-mailed to ask how to join using CCBill but never received a reply.
Last week she spotted a site called SimonsFans.com - http://www.simonsfans.com/sf.php - one of those typical gateway sites full of free taster images. On there was a link to join using CCBill, so she filled in all her details and CCBill processed the payment, but she was never provided with a username or password.
The E-mail from CCBill reads:
"Thank you for your subscription to Simonscans.
Your subscription number is ******************* [obfuscated here]
Please include your subscription number in all correspondence.
Your username is
Your password is"
So she wrote to CCBill and asked how to gain access to the site. Here's their reply:
"The website does not use our access managment system. As such we can not test the access to the site. We have e-mailed the website on your behalf regarding the issue. If you do not recieve any correspondence from the website please contact us back. Please allow 48 hours before following up with us regarding this issue."
After five days, there had still not been any response from SimonScans, so she contacted CCBill and they refunded her money.
Good for CCBill, a very poor show from SimonScans.
The only development since is that all the links on the SimonsFans website still point to a CCBill URL, but when clicked redirect back to SimonScans.com. This is more likely to be down to action from CCBill than SimonScans given their terrible customer support in this case, and the dubious nature of the SimonsFans site.

+ Claimed 653 models, in 4200+ sets, 464,000+ images--all archived
+ If you like the solo girl niche they stick with it; no guys (except maybe in the BG in public nudity)
+ Healthy variety of British, Ibizan, and Eastern Euro models in many shapes and sizes
+ Newest vids are 1280 x 720 HD .mov @ 4.9MB/s
+ Navigation is easy enough, despite missing content
+/- Near constant use of toys; a pro for me, but I know some hate this
- Pictures overall are good but small; newest ones are 1850 x 1230 max, older ones can be quite small
- Basically no model info beyond what you can learn from the photos or videos
- A lot of sets are missing content
- Not very many videos; treat this as a photo site
- Photographic style may annoy some; Simon frequently uses short DOF (more in BL)
- Very little girl-girl content
- Lots of models are less than hot
-/+ Lots of models are less than fully shaved; a con for me, a pro for others
-/+ I don't think Photoshop is used beyond cropping and adding a watermark; beware this is not as good as it sounds
I wanted to like this site a lot, I really did. It has all the right basic ingredients to make me happy: lots of young girls with lots of toys, while the guys stay behind camera with their mouths shut. Plus these are mostly British girls I have never seen with a few Euro ones I have seen thrown in. So what's the problem?
Well, sometimes even when you have all the right ingredients and follow the directions the recipe didn't turn out quite as well as you had expected. A lot of the girls didn't shave : ( and many more that didn't exactly just step off the runway in a Paris fashion show. I don't want to sound like a heartless asshole (that's what the forum is for) but there are quite a few models who could benefit from skipping the fast food. I am not saying any of the girls are really obese but don't expect to find one skinny little model after another here--as I said above, many shapes and sizes. It's really a matter of personal taste and I prefer the skinnier girls myself but that's just me. As far as the looks, well, that's personal taste too and I guess there's nothing anybody can do about that but there are plenty of hot girls--both skinny and not so skinny.
Besides the shape of its models the site could do some improving in terms of actually providing content that isnít there. As other reviewers have mentioned there are models that have missing photo sets and videos; you see a link to a set on the modelís page (usually three medium sized thumbnails) but when you click it there is just an empty SS page with the banners and links at the top but no content below, and the same with some videos. Annoying because nobody wants to pay for empty pages and those thumbnails would frequently get my engine revving only to have it stall out when there was an empty set.
When I actually saw the content I noticed a couple of things. First, the photos, despite making up the vast majority of content, were on the small side; 1850 x 1230 is the newest and biggest resolution available. I looked for links to bigger zips or maybe a hi-res option all to no availóthese biggest photos donít even fill my screen. Second, the photos themselves have some attributes that really divide us here at PU. I donít think any Photoshop is used beyond cropping and watermarking but before you jump for joy be aware that not all girls are created equal, especially when you jam the camera in between their legs to check out whatís under the hood. Ass zits, razor burn, and stray pubic hair may be a turn on for some but not me and I really wished somebody had cleaned these shots up at least a little. There are plenty of models that really donít need any digital work done on their lovelies but there are still many that do.
I would appreciate if a current member let me know how this site is doing when it comes to the tease factor. Do the models start fully clothed or do they start in the nude. If some do start fully clothed how many is "some?" Are they a minority or majority? No matter how gorgeous the quality of the material I need to see some sexy lingerie on a model's way to masturbation!
I recently joined and will soon do a review, but in the mean time I was wondering if there were any current subscribers? The latest review was from last summer (and it was a short one) and the last comment was from over a year ago. I haven't found any of the problems mentioned in the last few comments (which are pretty much outdated) so I was wondering how other members are doing.
Was a member approx. 4 months prior to this review.
Mega quantity of content.
Lacking raw sexiness.
This site was good and well well worth joining for a month, simply loads of content and girls and all superb quality. However, maybe I'm being too picky here with view to my personal taste but I found a lot of the content not very sexy, too much nudity and crudity that just doesn't get me off. It is a fantastic site though and could well imagine if this is your thing you'd rate it close to 10 out of 10, for me though I'm struggling to give it a top top rate.
Just rejoined the site after a few months to update my pics collection from this site. I downloaded around 550mb (did it in around 10 minutes with my 24mbps connection and Flashget download manager) and I have been blocked access for the next 12-24 hours stating excessive usage!
This is goddamn cheating! Nowhere does it say in the site that you have only limited downloads in a day and how much the limit is. This has never been a problem with this site before.
You pay $30 and this is the crap you get. Not worth ever joining again or keeping membership even if the site is good.
Current Member for over 1 year (at the time of review).
1. All Exclusive content. You won't see it on ANY other site. New content is added almost daily.
2. Stunning image quality, really has to be seen to be believed. Currently there are 589 models appearing in 3734 sets for a total of over 429,000+ images to browse.
3. Super fast download speeds for both images and movies. Multiple high quality movie formats - WMV/MPG/MOV/FLV at impressive bitrates (and NO DRM!).
4. Make no mistake, this truly is a benchmark solo-girl site by which all others of a similar niche should be judged.
5. Membership costs. If you're a fan of solo-girl sites like myself, the value for money this site represents is truly amazing. An absolute BARGAIN.
Small quibble with the video's (See Bottom Line)
Make no mistake folks, this is a gem of a site. As I said in my PRO's section above you really do need to check out the quality of the content on SimonScans.com and then take a look at 99% of other sites in the same niche to appreciate just how good it really is. One of the few (very few!) sites that really does make you go "Wow!".
Onto the site itself. It's quick to load and I personally found it a breeze to browse around and getting to sections of the site I go to frequently is easy. Granted, I have been a member for quite some time now, but I honestly believe you'll have no problems at all using SimonScans.com and everything just has that 'SimonScans' feel to it. If that makes sense? If you become a member (and you should!) you'll understand exactly what I mean :)
The reason I don't give this site 100/100 is that I agree with others that have said some of the older videos are of not such good quality. But then I think I'm judging them against the latest SimonScans video quality and maybe thats me just being overly picky. The latest videos (over the last 6 months) are very good indeed, so maybe I'am being overly-critical on this point.
To sum it up, this is a fantastic site. It hits its' niche bang on and all in glorious Hi-Res quality. Check it out today, you won't regret it for a second.
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
578 models, most with at least 5+ sets of pics, some with video.
Excellent site navigation options.
All exclusive content.
Frequent pic set updates. usually 1 or 2 every couple of days.
Fast download speeds (averaged around 700 kbps)
Quite a few vidcaps to represent a video.
Most movies have more than one movie download option.
Many members area problems such as dead links and missing movies, explained more below.
Minimal movie updates. 3-5 per month.
Too many unattractive models throughout the model index.
If you don't like the niche, it will be a con to you that most of the material is solo girl toy use and pussy spreading.
Customer support has been weak.
Older movies are poor quality and some don't play well.
Well, I just joined Simon Scans again for the first time in a LONG time and at first I was amazed at the navigation of the site. There are so many ways to look at different things and everything is very easy to access. You can look at the model index in multiple ways, view all past updates by month easily, and just browse through the movie files. At first I thought this was going to be right up at the top of my scores for reviewed sites, but the errors on the site kill the score. As a matter of face, even compared to all the crappy sites I have joined over the last 4-5 years, I can't think of one that had so many technical problems.
The biggest and most important thing that I will explain in more detail is the problems on the site. Initially when going through the model index I found one model that had some problems, but as I continued to browse, that one model became more, and the types of problems expanded even more as well. So, as is typical with most sites, when clicking on a model index you will get thumbnail picks of the models, and when clicking on one pic that brings you to the model page of that model, which views all of their sets and such. Simon scans has this too, but it also has a more detailed version of the initial list of thumbs of the models that lists all of the sets that they have too (pics and video). So you can either go into their model page by clicking on their pic, or you can access the sets directly from the model index in that little area I described that lists them all, the "series details" they call it. Ok, so first, when you click on a model pic to enter her model page, it is VERY common to not have all her sets in there. Both pic sets and video sets are often times left out of it, so that leaves you with the links that I described that are on the model index, in the "series details". Well, the pic set links work, but NONE of the movie links work. So, if the movie isn't in her model page, you are out of luck. So, that's problem one. Also, I found a couple models who have dead links to their model pages completely. Wow. And ANOTHER problem. I found more than one model who has multiple movies, only to find that sometimes more than one different movie links to the same movie download, meaning one of the movies is nowhere to be found. Seriously, for a big time site, it sure has a crapload of problems.
Also, this is a niche site for fans of solo girl content, nothing more. While I enjoy that content and did like the content I could access, if you aren't a fan of it this site will not be for you. Expect a lot of toy use and a lot of pussy spreading.
For the niche it serves, this site COULD be among the best if it fixed all the problems on the site. Seriously, get a new webmaster already. There are a lot of good things here, and they shouldn't be diminished, but just expect some frustration and challenges in accessing the content.
Just joined this site and initially I was thrilled. I'll write a full review in a week or so, but wanted to list some pretty substantial problems I'm running across right away:
So in the members area you can look at content in a few different ways, and I chose to start by just looking at the basic model directory and start with the A's. So in the model directory you can have it show as basic (just a thumbnail pic and name to represent a model) or the "full view", which shows her pic, has some basic info, and also lists all the sets that she is in, both pic and movie. Also, from this area where it lists all the sets you can click the set number which is a link to that set (either pic or video). Now, EVERY link to movies is dead on the model directory page. So, no big deal right, I'll just go to the model's actual page and get to it there. WRONG. Some models "model page" has their vids, some do not. Hell, some models "model page" doesn't even have all their pic sets, and you have to get to those through the model directory I already mentioned. Thankfully, all the links to the pic sets work from the model directory, but like I said before, NONE of the links to the movies do. This is especially frustrating since the site is already low on vids compared to pics, and some of the girls I want to see their videos!
I contacted their customer service with a detailed description of the problem, and we'll see what happens. I will reply to this comment with updates.

# Simon Scans offers super hi rez photography that's focused on harcore: beautiful UK models using big dildoes, gaping pussies, and all colors come through vivid and in rich colors.
# no flushed out, washed out or bland fleshtones, you get to see all ranges of fleshtones of the models inclushing pussy flesh in pinks; reddish flesh with the gaping shots, and purple.--no color is muted- just super vivid stimulating shots.
# offers many stimulating pov shots where you see angles as if you where lying on the floor looking up; or if your face was looking at her lap or her bum- just great in-your face shots.
#567 Models; 3567 Sets; 414,658 Images online
#pics are 1442 x 961, 961 x 1442

# lets you see some decent samples before you buy via site tour and email newsletter- you'll get a heapload of samples.
# Quicktime needed to use vids; don't have it- you'll need to download it.
# vids focus almost soley on models masterbating with dildos- so if you like to see models primping, trying on clothes, then you will have to get that elsewhere.
# Simon Scans shoots tend to be fast- the models get naked too quick sometimes- not true with all of the sets, but some of the sets. Though there are some great lingerie and clothes shots.
#Overall this site focuses on big dildoes; if you like the model using dildoes in almost every set; then you will love it- yet this site seems a bit too attached to the dildo.
Ok. If you like great photography of dildo centered hardcore; gaping pussies; shots of big dildoes penetrating models (including anal); both hairy and shaved shots; lots of great POV shots where the model stands over you while groping herself; and models shot in beautiful locations, then this site is for you.
I've been a member of Simon Scans four times. The best thing is finding your favorite model. The sets are outstanding and I spend myself lost in a set and browsing and skimming through everything a lot less. The shots are just stimulating and vivid. You get hi end lingerie in bright colors; you really gets to see drenched pussies; get to see even purple veins in the labia. These are just beautifully thought out composed and super hi rez shots.
If you have a large flat screen monitor then you have got to background some of these shots- they are great.
Simon Scans masters what it focuses on. Though personally for me I like to see models primping more and I am a softcore fan so I have other memberships that suit that need. I found a lot of the sets in Simon Scans that showed models in their clothes and lingerie just as erotic and stimulating as the hardcore shots
But everyone has their tastes, and if you like what i listed in the first paragraph- if those are your tastes; then you will be hooked on this site.
Simon Scans is a top five best site of its type for those who like seeing models using toys.
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Loads of content, mostly pictures
Easy to download
Good download speed
Lots of models
Navigation is decent
No download limit, kinda...
Price a little high
Not too many videos
Many of the models are not very pretty
Video quality a little low
Site could still grow some
Downloading was fairly easy. They have a good connection, but they do limit downloads sorta. Their server will kick you off if you reach a certain bandwidth quota. I was around 50-60 GB in about 2 days when I got booted. I email customer service and the reset my account within about a day. The limit is there to prevent hacked account from knocking their servers of the wall with 300 people all downloading from one account! The service guy said to keep downloading as much as I wanted and they would just keep reseting my account, but I had no more issues.
Some of the girls are kinda ugly on this site.
There was about 70 GB of pictures and 17 GB of videos, so this was about a 3 day download, but it came in nicely and kept my 3 Mbit/s pegged.
As of early march 2008 there were about 330 videos. The bit rates do vary, but a good amount of them are at about 1200 Kbit/s and the videos range from 4 minutes to 25 minutes. Most of the videos are 7-11 minutes. The resolution for the better amount of the videos are 480 x 360.

- British solo hardcore website with mostly girls from UK and Europe.
- Tons of decent quality solo hardcore and few lesbian photos dating from 2000. Close to 500 or more models
- Photo size 1500x900 or larger past 2 years.
- Updates 5 times a week mostly photos and occasionally videos.
- Decent quality videos. Masturbation videos are more authentic then most other websites you can actually see many models getting wet and having a real orgasm.
- Some photos are too blurry many a time the photographer blurs the models face completely and you get to see only the genitals. (May appeal to some)
- Manager of the website not picky in choosing models. Some average models that look like they badly need a shower, some look like they have given birth to 5-6 kids.
- Toys, toys and more toys some of them huge in size almost as long as their thighs and as thick as their arms, but they seem to be happily putting them in! Toys can put in as early as the 5th or 6th picture which makes it less erotic.
- Picture opens in new window. (May not be a hassle to some)
One of the best British porn sites around, although they have been adding a lot of other European models lately.
Will appeal to ones who love toys. Some models use two to three toys in every orifice possible!!
Was a member approx. 6 months prior to this review.
Hot "girl next door" content without the stilletoes and fake tits.
Great butt and ass photos.
Lots of models and lots of photos
Easy to navigate.
Friendly and authentic vibe to photos.
Videos are limited.
No hardcore for those who like that.
If you are only into hardcore videos, this site may not be for you. For all others it could be worth a look, and if you like solo amateur girls showing their tits, pussies and assholes, Simonscans could be heaven.

- Lots of models that I haven't seen before, plus some familiar faces, for a nice blend of old with the new
- Photo quality is nice at over 1500 on high end, but I do get some blurriness
- Videos in full scenes, about the only pro with those
- Amount of picture sets is impressive, around 2,500 sets and those come in zip files
- No scrolling image viewing is interesting, if not strange (see cons and BL)
- Videos aren't hardly worth downloading, poor quality and mostly boring videos that are almost all following a formula/sequence
- That no scrolling image viewing is strange, I can't figure out how to keep it working, so I end up not using it.
- Price is too high, $19.95 would be about right
- As with any site that advertises amateur content, you are going to get some models that aren't very good looking
- No sex beyond masturbation
I had heard almost all good things about this site. While I do agree that the photos look nice and for the most part are crisp and clear. There are some that are blurry right where I want them to be crisp and clear at.
The navigation is very easy to use, though not knowing these models, left me with spending an afternoon and clicking on each to see what each one looked like. Lots of blondes, and I'm not really into blondes, but that is minor. The downloads are easy, whether movie or zip picture files. Download speeds are going about average for me when compared to other sites.
I just don't see this site as one that I'm going to rush back to. The no scroll picture viewing is gimmicky at best. I went as far as hooking up my old monitor which is a 800x600 just to see how it works. My current monitor is 1600 on the high end, so I wouldn't need the no scroll viewing. The picture tries to fit itself to your screen size. Haven't I been able to do this while using Firefox for years?
If I'm not using that right, I would like it to be explained. The models range from very sexy to just plain average girls. I'm at the point that I want to see very sexy, so a lot of these models were just skipped over. The easiest way to sum it up is that it is a nice site and probably was a great one at one time, but it is just a little above average now. I might come back in a year and try it again. Recommended for 1 month at most, and there are still several similar sites I prefer.
