This site has over three premium retro decades worth of content, including raunchy, real film footage, and high-res scans of their cover girls. A sweet deal, indeed.

Judging by the tour at Private Classics, if you're into retro porn — be it '60s, '70s, or even the bitchin' '80s — this is the place to be. Apparently the site's content comes from a magazine that goes back over 50 years, but thanks to modern technology, we get clear and crisp, high-res transfers of these oldies but goodies. At least that's the plan. Let's find out if it all worked out, eh?

I'm really digging the layout at Private Classics. I mean, they got the bitchin' wallpapper looking wallpaper, the funky color scheme, and the handy menu at the top that lets you surf by decade. Combine that with the flashing montage of naked hippies and you've got a members' area you won't soon forget. What's more, the body of the page is filled wiht provocative covers and lurid descriptions, that, for you older perverts out there, will, no doubt, evoke memories of shuffling through smut mags at the local porno shop.
The content of the scenes range wildly, too. And, though filmed in a much more professional fashion, is a bit "rough" when it comes to performance. And I mean that purely in a sexual sense. It seems the stars of old just weren't as polished when it came to positions and money shots. Frankly, I find the crude, sweaty group sex charming. And absolutely hot, of course. It's just more "real." If that makes any sense.
And on that note, it's certainly all natural, considering the number of hairy pussies and slightly — naturally — saggy breasts. Not that there's not plenty of young, perky flower power gals in the mix. There are.
I was also quite pleased to find that they've done a great job of transfering these images. Admittedly, they're occasionally grainy, but that's a small price to pay with resolutions in excess of 3,000 pixels. The average for newer updates, in fact, is just 2,105 × 3,200 pixels. Not too shabby. Expect around 13 images per set, and the option to download the whole thing compressed in a ZIP. The only things that are really lacking here are a slideshow and multiple resolutions. As for the former, I could care less. The latter is mildly annoying, but again, not a big deal.
Also, you have to remember that these photos were shot for a magazine, so you're getting real professional work here. The lighting, arpeture, framing, sets and costumes — they're all on point. In fact, the only thing that's missing is the glossy feel of the page.
On the downside, the site is far from perfect. There is, for in stance, no real model index to speak of. Instead, you only have the community feature to go by. So, indexing content by model is next to impossible. Also, as much as I dig the fairly straight-forward layout, they could have at least added timestamps to their updates. I mean, if they can add a lengthy, informative and well written synopsis, surely a date of upload isn't too much of an inconvenience. Fortunately, though, I've let this one sit on my desk a while to get a feel for their update schedule, and they've added quite a few in the last month. So, expect at least bi-weekly updates.
One of this site's biggest pitfalls is its complete and utter lack of videos. I mean, I understand it's a magazine site, but surely they could get their hands on a little retro video footage. Still, if you're into retro erotic photography, this is hard to beat.
The site's biggest issue is that eventually they're going to run out of content. I mean, this is all vintage stuff — scans of their old magazines and digital transfers of old films — so what will they do then? I've noticed newer videos and photo galleries, so they're obviously adding some of the magazine's later content. That still won't last forever, though. So, my guess is they're sitting on some gold that they plan to "trickle down" throughout the years. At least that's what I'm hoping. In any event, this is one hell of a collection for the vintage connoisseur. Not to mention a cool corner of hitsory.
If you want to catch a glimpse of that wave Thompson so eloquently referenced, and perhaps even cum in the process, then I highly recommend you obtain a membership at Private Classics — pronto! And I speak from experience, brothers and sisters. After several days browsing their archives, I was overcome with a wave of nostalgia and that euphoria that one only experiences at the peak of an orgasm. If you're into '60s and '70s erotic photography, this is where it's at. Can you dig it, baby? For the currently monthly rate, I certainly can.
