Private Classics is home to an archive of digitized versions of Private magazine as well as a collection of the studio's movies. The 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, but this old-school smut is gritty and hardcore.
The design is appealing and it's not hard to find what you want. Granted, there aren't any tags or advanced search options, but there's a basic search and you can rate the content, sort it, save your favorites and leave comments. You can also check out their model index.
The digital magazines are archived by decade and the 217 DVDs are in the "movies" section, with multiple scenes for each (found under "scenes" if you want to browse that way). When you add them up, you get 1,412 videos and 1,882 photo sets.
The movies can be streamed and downloaded in an MP4 format. Of course, being vintage content, none of the movies are in HD, but they look decent. As for the photo sets, they might not be huge on the site, but you can get high-res versions in the Zip files. The site continues to update every day.
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 on, 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 its 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.
