Intro

If you've spent much time looking at adult movies in your life, you've probably come across Private by now. Private is a European video and magazine production company that has been around since 1965. They're known for their big budget movies and have won numerous awards for their films. The question with these type of companies is always how well did they make the transition to the web? In Private's case the answer is well enough.


The Pros

  Private magaine archive.

Fans of Private magazine will love the collection of magazines that they've got scanned here. They've got copies from 2003 to the present, with more being added all the time. They show dates going back to 1965, although those aren't currently available. Here's hoping they add those, as well! No matter which magazine line you like best (Private, Pirate, Sex, or Triple X), you'll find a great collection to check out.

  Large video collection.

Private.com currently offers 240 DVDs for members to enjoy. Each DVD is full-length, at over and hour and a half long. On top of that, members will find over 40,000 pictures to check out between movies. This is a big site by a big company.

  Good quality content.

Private is a professional company that works with top photographers and top models. You can expect the quality of the content here to reflect that. The videos look solid, at 1500k and 640x480. The photos are large, at 1600x1067. Everything is well-lit, sharp, and nicely done. Fans of Private won't be disappointed with the quality here.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Videos can be streamed in your browser using Flash and downloaded as a wmv in two quality settings.
  • Multiple new scenes are added daily. You can usually count on at least two new videos every single day.
  • The majority of the videos are exclusive. I wasn't sure about that initially, but the webmaster assures us that most of the collection won't find be found on other sites.

The Cons

  Getting around could be easier.

They've got some tools to help members navigate the site, but there's room for a lot more. To begin with, I had a tough time even finding the photos. There's no separate picture section and the link to view the pictures that go with a scene isn't obvious. They've got some categories, but what they really need is an advanced search tool. There are just too many models, videos, and magazines to go thumbing through one at a time.

  Not completely exclusive.

Though all of the videos here are original, they're not exclusive. Some of these are DVDs that are readily available on other sites. If you've spent much time on DVD archive sites, you may recognize a lot of the collection.

  Would love higher quality video.

As mentioned above, quality here is good overall. It is a professional collection. However, the specs are starting to look a bit dated. We're seeing more and more sites with high definition and I'd love to see Private make that move.

Minor Negatives:

  • Downloads came slowly. They were about half or less than the speed I'm seeing on other sites. It took way to long to download these scenes.
  • There are a few ads in the member's area. They're not terrible, but they are distracting at times.
  • I couldn't browse the site while downloading a video with my download manager. If I just downloaded through the browser, however, everything worked fine.

Bottom Line

The large magazine and video archives are sure to please Private fans.

All in all, Private.com was about what I expected. They've got a good-sized archive of their award-winning content that members will certainly enjoy. There's room for a few tweaks to make the site more user-friendly, and I'd love to see even higher quality content, so those are both things to look for in the future. Private fans and those who enjoy European hardcore in general will want to check this one out and hopefully we'll see continued upgrades in the future.
