Does a tanning salon hidden camera video taping scandal make you wary?

Just on Friday 1/21, a North County San Diego tanning salon owner was busted for hidden camera video taping 6 women and 1 young teenage girl. He was also caught with child porn (big surprise). Will you now be wary going into tanning salons? What could tanning salon owners do to help you feel safer, and that they will respect your privacy?

Will you let your teenage daughter go to tanning salons alone now?

  • Honestly, I tanned for twenty years. As much as I thought about it, it didn't stop me from tanning. But, yeah, I've heard of it happening... even in my own town.

  • The tanning salon is the first place my daughter went on her 18th B-day I would not consent to this as a minor- Because she could. Anytime that I have gone, I have worn a bathing suit and covered my face. It was basically just to color my legs-

  • I spent two months tanning at prep for my friends wedding. I wouldn't do that again, but MAN does it feel GOOD when you are doing's kind of addicting.

  • WHY does someone living in SAN DIEGO even NEED to go to a tanning salon?!?! LOL

  • I love my healthy natural skin and would never go tanning. The turning orange, skin cancer and laying in a coffin like bed really was a turn off to me. I never considered some perv could be taking video. Even more reasons to stay away.

  • I used to visit tanning salons, back when I thought I was invincible, and cancer was something that happened to other people. I never worried about hidden cameras, but that does add a new element to the dangers of tanning booths. It's not worth the risk to my skin, my daughter's skin, or to our safety regarding other types of exposure.

  • Because the temp in San Diego hovers in the high 60s-low 70s- not really all that bathing suit tan friendly- San Diego is a really jeans and short sleeved short location.
