    I thought as much about this so called "secret". I have encountered this thing along with all the other scumbag ads like every time I watch my favourite shows online over the years and I say this; attention to all it will not appease your 'downstairs brain' for hours on end, just close the tab and find regular p*rn like a normal person would as there is usually recorded cam shows.

    I've had people also try to send to me using Skype. I use it for work so I'm constantly adding new people. Occasionally someone will use a false name and then talk dirty in the chat to try to get you on their site. All end in www.FreeSecretCams .com

    Can this pop up come from different kind of sites or just one? And does it always come from a porn site?

      The popup ad can be delivered from any website because it is distributed via online advertisement. And, most websites are running online advertisements as a source of revenue.

      But, it doesn't mean that the website the popup ad came from endorse it.
