Private Classics is home to an archive of digitized versions of Private magazine as well as a collection of the studio's movies. 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, though the company is incorporated in the U.S.
What has grown into a massive distributor of adult content (they provide pay-per-view movies for many major hotels around the world), this collection will show you the simple roots of this now global success, from the '60s through to the current decade. You might expect more conservative content going back that many years, but this old-school smut is gritty and hardcore.
The site's design is nice and it's easy enough to navigate. The movies can all be found in their own section, while the digital versions of the magazines and the pictures taken from them are sorted by decade. There are 87 DVDs for you to enjoy and there are multiple scenes on each. When you add them up, you get around 500 scenes. There are also about 700 photo sets to go along with them.
The movies can all be streamed in an embedded player as well as downloaded and offer good-quality playback in an MP4 format. As for the photo sets, they're pleasant to look at. They might not look huge when viewed on the site, but you can get high-res versions by downloading them in Zip files.
When you see all this porn from decades past you'll realize how much of what we see now is devoid of any natural appeal, with models 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 and the movies, but they still have imperfections.
I guess it's like listening to a vinyl record versus a digital recording. The occasional hiss or tiny skip gives the music a unique charm. The sex here is also sometimes a little messy-looking and not as sterile and neat as some of today's porn.
The site continues to update, which is great, and they've posted more than 30 videos and at least eight photo sets in the last month, giving you almost daily updates. In the end, Private Classics will appeal to those of you who wish to take a journey through a classic porn publication.
