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 not be aware that this magazine was 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 design is quite appealing and it has some useful features built into it, though, some are missing. For example, there aren't any keyword tags and there aren't any advanced search options, but there's a basic one. You can rate the content and sort it. You can track your favorites and leave comments, too. You can also check out their model index.
The digital versions of the magazines and the pictures taken from them are archived by decade. There are 178 DVDs (in the "Movies" section) for you to enjoy, with multiple scenes on each (found under "Scenes"). When you add them up, you get 1,141 videos and 604 photo sets to go along with them.
The movies can be streamed in an embedded player as well as downloaded in an MP4 format. Of course, being vintage content, none of the movies are HD, but they look decent. As for the photo sets, they might not be huge when viewed on the site, but you can get high-res versions by downloading them in Zip files. The site continues to update every day, but there aren't really any extras here to speak of.
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. Women nowadays are often 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, but they still have imperfections and I like that.
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. Private Classics will appeal to those of you who wish to take a journey through a classic porn publication.
