Private Media Group, Inc. NASDAQ|PRVT is a pornography production and distribution company that distributes its content via print publications, DVDs, the internet, and mobile handsets.

"Private" magazine was established in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1965 as the world's first full-color hardcore magazine by Berth Milton Sr. In the early 1990s, his son Berth Milton Jr. took over and moved the company's headquarters to Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Spain, although the company is incorporated in Nevada. Milton also started to produce movies and internet content, and in 1999, Private became the first adult entertainment company to be traded on the NASDAQ stock market.


"Private" is known for high budget movies directed by Pierre Woodman (who left the company in 1999 and briefly re-joined for the "Sex City" trilogy in 2005) and by Alessandro del Mar. In 2004 del Mar released his two-part series "Millionaire" with a reported budget of $1.9 million. [ [ Private U.S.A. Sets Release Date For Multimillion-Dollar Feature, Millionaire] , AVN Media Network, 3 September 2004] In the last decades, Private Media Group has earned over 130 adult industry awards. Bestselling DVD releases include the Private Gladiator series, Cleopatra, Millionaire and Chateau.

Many starlets made their debut and/or got famous making movies at Private, including Silvia Saint, Alexa May, Tania Russof, Monica Sweetheart, Monique Covét, Laura Angel, Timea Margot, Sophie Evans, Cassandra Wilde, Dora Venter, Claudia Ferrari, Nikki Anderson, Michelle Wild and Angel Dark.

Product lines

Private releases 10 - 12 new DVD titles every month and currently has the largest original content completely digital adult movie library of over 800 titles.

Private has established its Internet presence with multi-lingual websites attracting more than 2.5 million visits with 60 million page views per month. Private sites now offers DVD quality movies, Video on Demand (VOD), Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), Digital Magazines Download, PSP and iPod downloads.

Private supplies soft and hard erotic movies and entertainment to thousands of major hotels around the world (Hotel Pay Per View)

Private Media Group is the leading mobile content provider for adult entertainment content in the world offering both on-and off portal delivery

In August 2008, Private Media Group announced it has established a strategic alliance with Marc Dorcel to collaborate in the home video market. The collaboration initiates with a three year DVD distribution agreement for France and going forward it is expected that Private and Marc Dorcel will explore additional opportunities in other Territories. It is also expected that Private and Marc Dorcel will join forces on several distribution platforms including Internet and IPTV/VOD in both France and across the EU. This will be very opportunistic as many new distribution platforms find it inconvenient to deal with a multitude of adult content providers. By combining the best adult brands and two of the main players in one strategic offering, Private/Dorcel can offer a “one-stop-shop” for most of the adult content needs any platform may require.

In 2008, as a result of Company’s continuing transition from traditional to digital content distribution, DVD & Magazine sales are decreasing, offset by increased Internet, wireless and broadcasting sales.Berth H. Milton expects Internet, wireless and broadcasting sales to increase significantly, given the rapid growth of these platforms and Private’s leadership role in the adult entertainment category
