Voyeurweb has been pioneering user-generated content since the time when the term Web 2.0 was unknown.Initially submissions of all photos of nude women were encouraged, and there were very few limits on the kinds of photos that could be submitted.It has operated under the guise of operating in Germany (true); Panama (false); The Turk and Caicos Islands (false); San Francisco, USA (true); New York, USA (true); Toronto, Canada (partially true); and the Amsterdam, Netherlands (true).While operating with shell operations may indicate a less than reputable company, these actions have been primarily to avoid legal problems, including the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act.

As with any Web 2.0-type system, there is also the possibility of copyrighted photos being uploaded to the site but viewers are asked to be alert to this and report infringements via a "Report Contri" button found on every page with photos, allowing users to "Report a stolen or suspicious contri" (contribution).

These included many photos of nude women taken without their consent—for example, through windows, in dressing rooms, in public and private showers, or while sleeping.

These voyeur related photo sections sustained heavy criticism until photos displaying invasion of privacy were allegedly no longer shown.

This departure from no-holds-barred voyeuristic photography changed the site's concept significantly, as it was one of the first to offer its visitors both photos and videos of a true "voyeuristic" nature, including material containing non-consenting subjects.

However, photos such as those of topless sunbathers on beaches are still displayed without consent from the women being photographed, in circumstances where Voyeurweb feels that the women did not have a "reasonable expectation of privacy".

Voyeurweb also operates a forum, a Wiki dedicated to sexology and features most of it photos in an additional i Phone-friendly interface. One of its functions is to draw participants to its sister site Red Clouds, which is a subscription site.
