Private Classics is home to an archive of digitized versions of Private magazine. Now you may or may not be aware that this magazine launched in 1965 and was the first hardcore porn mag to be printed in full color. Founded in Sweden by Berth Milton Sr., his son moved their headquarters to Spain in the early '90s, although the company is incorporated in the U.S.
What has grown into a massive distributor of adult content, providing, for example, pay-per-view movies for loads of major hotels around the world, this collection will give you the simple roots of this now global success. PrivateClassics brings you images (but no videos) from the '60s, '70s and '80s. You might expect more conservative content, but this old-school smut is gritty and hardcore.
When you see the 315 high-res photo galleries (3000x2000) that can be saved in Zip files, you'll realize how much of what we see now is devoid of any natural appeal because the models are airbrushed and digitally altered to the point of not even appearing human. I'm sure some of the pics here have been retouched and some women have a ton of makeup that's very apparent in the enlarged photos, but they have imperfections still.
I guess it's like listening to vinyl records versus a digital recording. The occasional hiss or tiny skip gives the music a unique charm. These babes from past decades don't all look the same, even if they follow the fashions of their day. The sex is sometimes a little messy-looking and not as sterile and neat as some of today's porn.
They have links to live chats and a dating site, although you will have to pay extra to fully access all their features. There's an "extra" section showing a dozen photo galleries that date from the 1990s. I'm not sure why they don't consider this part of their regular content because they all come from issues of Private.
Nothing is dated on the website, but the site has grown nicely since we last stopped by. Using simple math, it seems that they're adding about 15 photo sets a month. Now, obviously when your content is coming from the past, there is a limit to how much the collection can grow in the long term, but I think they've got a few more pictures up their sleeve. Private Classics may appeal to those who wish to return to a simpler time.
