Review

Anyone who has been to the back room of a video store has heard of Private Entertainment. They're one of the biggest porn makers out there. If you've watched porn, you've probably gotten off to one of their movies already, so you can understand my excitement when I saw Private was next up for me to update.

The website bills itself now as a mega-site. That might sound like a major change from what it was before, but it's really simply a question of reorganization. They've created separate domain names and tours based on niche. So, for example, there are anal-sex sites, a MILF offering and an interracial one. However, once you sign in to any of them you're back on the same old Private domain.

They've also made some tweaks to the design and now I can filter the over 4,067 videos by the "anal sex" category or I can browse by the site instead, like Anal Introductions, Mission Asspossible and Russian Teen Ass. I still have the option of seeing the 677 DVDs that are the original source for this content, which you can't download anywhere else by the way. Updates continue to be daily.

The flicks come in two or more MP4 files with many of the newer vids coming in HD, but they've done away with any Windows Media files and removed the clips. You can also stream the films in an embedded player and although you will see a progress bar showing that the stream is loading, you can actually skip ahead right away without waiting for it to fully load.

With big-names pornstars like Abby Brooks, Silvia Saint and Brittney Skye, the women are gorgeous across the board. You'll find Latinas, Nubian beauties, Asians, Europeans and Americans, not to mention teens to MILFs. Being the pros they are they're willing to go as far as possible to please their fans. We're talking no holes barred, with anal action, creampies, double penetration and interracial sex. You can also find some BDSM for those into kink.

You can also check out around 3,898 photo sets, but they don't have their own section. When you click to watch a movie you'll see a tab for some or not. You'll find some high-res images when you download them individually or in Zip files (they appear smaller online). It appears that most of the movies from the year 2000 don't have any images, though.

The interface has some worthwhile features, like the ability to save your favorites, rate the content (you can sort by ratings too) and leave comments, but there's no advanced search. Still, navigation isn't that good, because although you will see links to 10 pages of content, you can only move forward or back beyond that initial range by one page at a time, which leads to a lot of clicking.

Even with such a limitation, there's no denying that you're getting a ton of high-quality porn (I almost forgot to mention that the footage that doesn't come in HD is still good in quality) and the cost of membership certainly won't break the bank. So, all in all, Private remains quite easy to recommend.

    Discount $14.95/30 days isn't true!!

    20.95 euro= 29.15$

    I tried a few adult sites and I quite most of them right away. Too much crap and old bullshit on many other sites. I love the private quality and I also love the way they present there stuff. The download options are just great and an don't even have to convert those movies to watch them on my mobile while i´m on the road. They are pushing updates all the time and I wish I had more time to watch... :) Theres only one thing I'm missing; "Mark favorites". Even those crappy tubesites have that option and it would be great have a favorites section and perhaps a counter. "This scene is faved 239 times."

    Most of the content is also available on Videobox. In fact videobox has as much or more private dvd's than the private.com site and the quality is better. Go figure. A lot of the content not available on videobox is compilation videos. That said, there is just enough unique stuff here that a month or two subscription makes sense. Also, some of the new releases are in HD. Oh, contrary to some previous reviews, there is plenty of pic sets available, I had no problems with the flash player and I wouldn't consider the site a ripoff.

    Hi Rabbit rewievs... i was not sure if i wanted to join Private.com but after reading this "Pic sets: 2831 (Pics per set: 124)" -and knowing the euro style that the deliver- I joined straight away for 3 monhts 60 bobs, now this picture library is a total lie many until now i havent found just 1 gallery with more than 50 pics and only a few of them, many has only screenshots some only one pic i guess avrage is 15 and you say 124, this is soooo bad and rabbit reviews should compensate its cheating.
    Reply from RabbitsReviews (Date:03/26/2012): I went through the site to verify our stats and they look to be accurate. Some of the performers (like Aletta Ocean) have over 2K pics, and she is just one of hundreds of models featured. While the magazine spreads have less pics per set, you will find the model galleries have large sets, which bring up the average.

    Very disappointing site. Flash player is years out of date, some videos have no scenes, the magazine section is a joke. Very poor and I rate this as pretty much a ripoff.

    I should have come here before I signed up. All the stuff is old, non exclusive, and I just got ripped off. That said, the girls are beautiful. You guys should really re-review this.

    Was a member of Private.com in 2008, but membership was too pricey so I canceled. The girls are faultless and hot, the action is intense - but the site is? was quite a mess, with, as mentioned, advertising links and non-exclusive material. If you like this kind of porn, european that is - go for DDF Prod, they are much better! And more expensive...but it`s worth it. Trust me.

    DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS SITE!!!
    FLAT-OUT BAIT-AND-SWITCH. They have just replaced the entire site with a new one that only has magazine content dating back to 2003, and they are still advertising the old content on the welcome and signup pages. You need to to a ripoff alert on this site.

    A really great site with the best quality porn on the net. The girls are usually of a very high-standard (though their American stuff is about as limp as American porn often is). Now that there is no DRM encryption, the site is totally worth it. The only real shortcoming for me was that some of their older sets and vids are not available, though I think they regularly re-release stuff.

    Well worth the investment.

    15 Years ago Private was good and worth a look, but today I wouldn't join if it was free; seriously it's gotten that bad\nThe reason? - because they have everything needed to make a viewer happy: beautiful girls, nice sets etc; but they also use every opportunity to frustrate and even annoy you!\nThey do this by having bad directors, abysmally disappointing scene management, awful "artwork", and irritatingly terrible male performers\nMen watch porn because they want to see beautiful women being screwed. We don't watch it to see a man wag his dick - as in: in-out, wag wag wag, in-out, wag wag wag etc. If we wanted to watch men wagging their dicks we wouldn't be watching hetero movies. Private doesn't seem to know this because they show hours of dick-wagging in their supposedly hetero movies\nMen also watch porn because we like female bodies. Private makes women keep half their clothing on so we don't get to see their bodies -- wtf??!!\nAnd when the woman actually is naked, they have three ways of frustrating you to make sure you see practically nothing: DP in which the woman's body is smothered and all you get is a view up mens' assholes (!!); blurred images à la David Hamilton to hide the woman; and images from behind a drape which means you see just as little. This isn't "artistic", it's just irritating and annoying\nYou'd think professional porn producers would understand things like this, but the ones at Private don't seem to. Much to my disappointment, because they used to be sexy which is what they aren't now

    Disappointing.
    Great sets and beautiful girls, but what's with the PDF files for the pics?
    DRM on the videos too.

    The Rabbit discount offer ($19.95 instead of $29.95) does apply, despite the confusing sign-up screen, which seems to suggest otherwise. Mac users: the downloaded movies are not playable on the Mac at all --- the sign-up screen is a little misleading about this. That's why I rate it lower than the 100 it would get on content alone. The movies are the most important part of the site
