Hey!

Take it on the chin???! I have! You have made points and I explained why and how things were done as they are. No more, no less - I think that I have politely replied to various points (despite the veiled paedophilic comment and reference to 'perv', both of which I think are totally uncalled for). Yes I asked for comments, which you and others gave and I am discussing them with you all! It would appear that some people here don't like their opinions questioned. This is supposed to be a discussion board after all!

The bit about Americans - no need for anyone to take offence - different cultures have different attitude to different things.... e.g. mixed saunas in some Nordic countries are fine but would not be applicable in others. I did say that 'prudish' wasn't the right word but I couldn't think of a better one, I suppose just a different level of what is acceptable and what is not in different part of the world.

Five minutes ago I just took a booking from a lady for Ladies Day at Ascot - she didn't seem bothered in the slightest that I am a guy - different strokes I guess.

I fail to see why (whatever individuals views are on the video) people are getting a bit uppity which is a real shame. Never mind.

EsterLou, In reply to your message I said....
"6 EstherLou. 'Porny' music! Honestly don't know what you mean, but then I don't watch any porn! Seriously, it is just some funky music written for the vid. To licence a track for use on a vid is approximately £500 for 30 seconds and the licence is for 5 years..... gets a bit expensive then! The stuff after the before/afters is the fun bit or twist or viral aspect of the vid that gets people talking. Looks like its working! I don't want FAQ on the vid, I have it on my site the vid is to get people to the site and get my business more widely known."

To which you have just said "ok, i thought my post was constructive, i thought maybe some of the other comments were a bit harsh so i tried to be nice and helpful as you did ask for opinions, i won't bother in future."

So how exactly was my reply to you upsetting or rude or otherwise to cause you to say you won't bother?? I just explained my reasons to your points thats all - and yes, your post WAS more constructive than some of the others.

Ho-hum!

Of course it is fine for any/all of you to not like or even hate the vid, to offer criticism etc, but I think that some of you are getting a bit upset if I disagree about different aspects of your answers.

Don't know what else to say really. I am happy to discuss the vid, but don't want to be drawn into arguments.

Just thought I would let you guys all see my new spray tan video - Spray Tanning Video - Tropical Sunrise

Hope you like it!

You said in your first post that you hoped we like your video... that is equal to asking for opinions of your video.

Not everyone will agree with you, it's the way of the world and we should all learn to accept the fact that we won't all have the same viewpoint.

Nobody wishes to have an argument about this, if a full blown argument starts or tempers get too hot then I can guarantee you that this thread will be closed.

What you must appreciate (in my personal opinion) is that there will be a lot of females who will choose not to have a man doing their spray tanning, a lot of women are self conscious of their bodies and feel more comfortable in the presence of a woman when standing there in their undies or a bikini, add to that the final part of your video and you've lost a large percentage of your potential clientèle.
If you remove the final part after the before and after photo's then I think your potential clientèle would increase.

I hope you see where I'm coming from.

I've just watched it and i showed my hubby to get his opinion on it too, yep agreed its a bit porn star ish (the music and just the whole concept of it!).

I realise you've tried to add a bit of fun to it but not for me im afraid !

Hi Valencian,


"You said in your first post that you hoped we like your video... that is equal to asking for opinions of your video."
yep! Thats why I said "Yes I asked for comments, which you and others gave and I am discussing them with you all! It would appear that some people here don't like their opinions questioned. This is supposed to be a discussion board after all!"

So I have never had a problem with people giving opinions! But they seem to have a problem with me responding to their opinions!

"Not everyone will agree with you, it's the way of the world and we should all learn to accept the fact that we won't all have the same viewpoint."
Yes, I agree! But again, people saying "next time I wont bother" obviously don't seem to agree with you!

"What you must appreciate (in my personal opinion) is that there will be a lot of females who will choose not to have a man doing their spray tanning, a lot of women are self conscious of their bodies and feel more comfortable in the presence of a woman when standing there in their undies or a bikini"
Of course I appeciate not all women are happy with a guy - I even mentioned earlier that I have in the past had 2 who didn't want a guy. Likewise, many are totally happy with it.


"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness, can be trained to do most things"
- LOL! :)



Minkus, thanks for the comment, and showing it to your husband.

will have to say that it did at the end have a feel for porno..

At the beginning I thought the guy was a exterminator..Now I am being honest here.
A bit too...hollywood/ fashion runway show.

Otherwise, not a bad vid to be honest. But it sure didn't sell me on it.

Hi Tropical sunrise

I have to say that aside from the extremely cheesy music... which can no doubt be tweaked... I think it isn't bad!

I don't think the girl looked embarrassed (someone else mentioned this in a post above) for any other reason than she didn't get her hair bobble out quick enough for the camera!

I would have to say that the video is extremely long and I would have liked it better had it stopped after the pictures of the girls came out - that is more than enough. You have got your point across. The end bits, although more amateur than tacky/porn... are just not necessary. I got bored nearer the end.

My overall opininon would be, ditch the irritating music... or make it so it doesn't play so loud over the film... and cut it short a bit sooner!!

Well done, hope your business is doing well :hug:

i watched it from beginning to end, but had the sound off,
i watched it before i read any comments
i thought it was interesting as ive never seen spray tanning done before

on the whole i thought it was informative and not once did i think, "ohh err theres a man doing it!!"
i thought it was interesting, and the end bit made me laugh,
may i have found it different if id had my speakers on ? i dont know,
but personally i thought it was fine,
as like i said before ive never seen sprays being done before

OK... I may be totally getting my backside kicked here but, as you know, I do tell the truth and shame the devil as it may be.
A lot of girls that I spray love me because I really don't care if they look like supermodels or if they are clinically obese. Who cares what they look like? What I look at is the tan and how good it is.
They like me because they feel at ease with me.
A man CAN do this job but there will always be the worry in the back of some ladies minds about it.
The video was ok. BUT...
It did show touching the skin AFTER the spray which I don't like....it messes things up with the tan and can cause it to be patchy.
the music was not that bad tbh it was just the end of the vid that made me chuckle....I wasn't offended but thought it was a bit bad taste, but I understand the need to be different and to get "noticed".
I honestly do understand the need to show the white "bits" but maybe it could be shown a different way.
After all girls...we do show the white bits to our friends after a spraytan just to prove our point...don't we??

I watched it yesterday, without sound, so I think the porn thing was lost on me too.

I was interested in the technique, totally different to the way I spray.

I liked how you used two different skin tones.

When the girls took their bikinis off at the end,obviously they didn't want any white bits.! I don't remember the bit about the bikini over the lense.

I had a demo tan done by a man back along and no way wouldI have taken my bra off, I wouldn't like to have a spray tan done by a hetrosexual man, I had enough man stuff with a recent pedicure.... if he was gay, then that would be different.....jmho

Hi all,

well it looks as though today the more positives appear! LOL

Thanks. I am glad that it was noticed that the end is about the girls not wanting any white bits (which IS the twist) rather than anything dodgy.

Again a comment about them touching their tans. Yes, you are absolutely correct Judy that in real life it is a big no-no, but in this case, it is just for a vid so has to be ignored by us in the know.

but I understand the need to be different and to get "noticed"
Yep! And being noticed is what it is about.


Incidentally, I just came across this... [URL REMOVED as the Myspacer has removed the vid as requested]

So someone certainly likes it enough to use as advertising for their business!!! Hmmmm.

Well I must be watching the wrong kind of porn!!!! lol :Grope:

The music is fine, there is nothing wrong with the video at all.

I watched it and saw exactly what it was " a promotional tanning video" not some sleezy cheap thrill.

Being professional doesn't mean you have to be boring - a funny twist at the end to get people talking - hhmmmm think it did the job.

Well done and good luck

Thanks ladies!

Exquisite, I haven't personally come across any other male tanners. Do you know them or have you just heard about them?

PS My kids love the Tigger!

I think Axiom does spray tanning but it may be a male only salon.

I've just watched this video you're all talking about and it's by NO MEANS porn ish! I think we need to get this into perspective. TS has asked us to have a look and see what we think, so we have, but don't forget, most of us are looking at the video from a critical point of view. Potential clients that log onto TS's site and see the video will, in my opinion, be delighted to get a bit of insight into what to expect from their spray tan if they've never had one before. I know it would be of interest to me if I was searching for a spray tan. Also, TS IS A BLOKE, or did someone miss this?? It would've been a bit dumb of him to use a girl in his demo!!

There are Hollywood blockbuster movies out there that have won a whole heap of oscars, can we honestly put our hands on our hearts and say that we've all watched them and thought they deserved the oscars they've won? I don't think so. This video is a little demo for clients, it does just that job, so what's the big fuss about?

It's a great idea TS, I wish I'd thought of it. Good luck - I hope you get gazillions of clients! :)

Everyone sees things from a different viewpoint, I personally don't see the need for "getting this into perspective", opinions were asked for and they were given, end of!

We can't all have the same opinion, neither will potential clients.
The world would be a boring place if we all liked the same things and thought similarly wouldn't it?

cheers about tigger everyone comments on him lol
i only spoke to a male tanner yesterday dont know them personally but i know of quite a few
I have a friend who is a male that spray tans and is also a beauty therapist but only for men as he lives near the gay village and does a roaring trade, he will do women but he prefers men

I totally agree with what you've said. Yes, we are all most definitely entitled to our opinions. My perspective on this is, that TS's video isn't a Hollywood Movie, but I got the impression that's what some of you guys were expecting, as there were comments such as 'amateurish'. Also, you are right in saying that potential clients won't all have the same opinion, I was just saying if I was a potential client I would see the video for what TS wanted it to be - something informative for his clients.
