When you imagine a Solarium, what comes to mind? The word literally translates from Latin to “place of sunlight,” and I found out this morning that it’s used differently around the world. As an American, I thought it was one of those big glass rooms on the edge of a house, where you have to be careful about masturbating if you don’t want another indecent exposure charge. On the other hand, Germans know solariums as a place where you go to lay in a tanning bed. We call those tanning salons here, but after browsing Solarium.tv for a while, I think I like the German version better.
None of that explains why I’m talking about solariums here today, though. As you may have realized, if you’re a regular here at ThePornDude, I’m not exactly in the business of promoting tanning beds or beauty/health treatments. Anyway, I’m not sure Solarium.tv would get a quarter million visits a month if that’s all they were hawking. Sure, you could visit their establishment to get your skin temporarily darkened with ultraviolet radiation, but wouldn’t you rather lurk off in the shadows and watch naked ladies lying in those machines?
Have you figured it out yet? Solarium TV is a voyeur site with a bunch of spy cams hidden around a sunbed business. It sure seems like a solid gimmick for the peeping tom set: the shop attracts the type of women who know their bodies are good enough to show off, which is why they tan in the first place, and they’ve got to take their clothes off for the process to work. I’m watching a lady strip beside a tanning bed as I’m typing this up, so let’s just jump right into the review now.
Tuning In to Solarium TV
I didn’t know what to expect when I pulled up Solarium TV, but the all-caps text stretched across the top of the front page spelled it out pretty clearly. “REAL TANNING SALON LIVE CAMS FOR FREE,” it read. I’m always skeptical of claims like this. I’ve seen other voyeur sites where only a few cams are free, and they’re always the worst ones where you never see anything. Likewise, fans of webcam sex know that every cam site makes the same claim of free shows, but free live boobies are difficult to find outside of the big websites.
The very first cam I saw was situated in the lobby of the salon. I saw a couple of gals shooting the shit over by the counter, enjoying the company and the banter. A customer walked in with a dog on the leash, and the conversation seemed to continue. Everybody was fully clothed, which made it very difficult to masturbate to.
Below the cam view is a menu of spy cams in different parts of the building. The Counter and Entrance aren’t terribly enticing, but they’ve also got 4 Women cams, a couple for Men, plus Head View, Feet View, and a few more. So altogether, you’ve got about a dozen different spy cams to peep through. I’m not interested in the Men cams, but you know what they say—different strokes for different folks.
In my experience, I started getting my strokes in right away. So I clicked on Women 2 and saw a sexy blonde chick with her pants off remove her shirt, exposing a nice rack barely contained in a black bikini. I’m kind of bummed she didn’t get fully naked, but I did enjoy myself as she climbed into the tanning bed and began absorbing those UV rays. The bright light gives her light skin a science-fiction purple tinge that’s weirdly enticing.
I clicked around the other free cams available on Solarium.tv’s front page but mostly found closed tanning beds where you couldn’t see anything. The nature of voyeur sites means that you’re not necessarily going to have some T&A available at any given moment; it all depends on who’s tanning at that particular time. I recommend looking at the Multicam View because it’s the best way to see everything quickly. Even free, unregistered visitors have access to a decent selection of cams. So go ahead, cheapskates, and have a free fap!
Twenty Live Solarium Cams and More
As much as I appreciate the free peeks, I’m sure most of you know how these freemium voyeur sites work. They give you access to some stuff, but you quickly find where the limits are once you start exploring. Most of Solarium TV’s best features are locked away for premium members only. Again, that MultiCam View I mentioned has 20 live voyeur solarium cams, but only 8 of them are free.
I clicked the Unlock button on one of the blurred-out cams to see how much it would cost me to unblur it. Well, access is 0.99 Euro, but there’s a minimum booking of 9.99 Euro, depending on your payment method. (They offer a ton of options, from the usual credit cards to bitcoin.) It’s a coin-based system where you’ll unlock cams for daily or monthly use. Honestly, it’s not all that different from a webcam chat site, but arguably cheaper; instead of constantly tipping to keep the show going, you’re just paying to keep the curtains open.
While I’m on the subject of webcam chat, this seems like a good place to mention some of Solarium TV’s other options. As a porn reviewer who recently branched out into making my own dirty movies at PornDudeCasting, I understand the benefit of diversifying your stock. Besides the Solarium stuff, these guys also have one-on-one cam shows available. I like that both types of cams take the same coins.
The banner out on the front page of Solarium.tv seems to claim there are only five live 1:1 cams, but I found at least 65. It’s an excellent selection, too, with different ages and ethnicities, plus some swingers and couples to keep things extra interesting. The one downside to this site section is that the service isn’t available for everyone. I got a message saying live chats were unavailable for my region, which means you may need a VPN to appreciate the full benefits of this joint. (If you don’t yet have a VPN or even know what that is, check out my list of the Best VPN Sites here at ThePornDude!)
Watch Now, Tomorrow, and Last Week
Voyeur cam houses run 24-7 because they’ve got people in them all the time, ideally hooking up. However, since Solarium TV has its cameras spread around a business, their hours are a bit more limited. The shop’s hours are listed near the top of the front page if you want to tune in live. The rest of the time, you’ll have to settle for prerecorded videos.
Everything is recorded at the solarium, and they keep an archive of the whole last week of video. That means you can jump in at any time and see what you missed. Maybe some sexy Asian chick came by to get some fake sun, or maybe there’s a thick gal with gorgeous feet absorbing the rays. Either way, you get to watch them while they lay there, completely oblivious that some pervert on the internet is watching and beating off into an old, crusty sock.
Ultimately, that’s Solarium TV’s biggest gimmick. Compared to some of the other voyeur sites where they’ve hired a bunch of sexy young people to live in a house together and fuck, this one’s a little bit low-key. The women take their clothes off, but they aren’t typically getting their brains fucked out in those tanning beds. For the most part, they’re there for the service, not to expose themselves to perverts.
It’s a fascinating setup, and I wonder if the women really don’t know. The Counter and Entrance cams seem to show a legitimate business, but they’ve got “secret” cameras in the cabins. That kind of setup certainly would not fly in the United States, at least not without consent, but I’m not an expert on German laws.
With all the free cams available, Solarium.tv is worth a look for any voyeur or general fan of women. That’ll give you an idea of what they’re selling and whether you’ll enjoy getting in a little deeper. Speaking of, I’m going to wrap up this review so I can watch this blonde chick who just walked into the solarium.
