Do we live in a Private Society? I guess it depends on how you define the term. I’m sure some would argue the days of true privacy are long gone, our pure alone time sacrificed for phones that know exactly when and where you want a burger or a beat-off. These days, the smarter motherfuckers won’t even crank it in front of the computer without their webcams covered up, because who the hell knows who’s watching? Incidentally, you might want to cover it up now if you’re worried you’ve accidentally opted into some surveillance plan that came with your favorite social network. Then again, maybe you’re fine with Zuckerberg having some good shots of your ding-dong that he can sell to the boner pill companies later.
That’s all kind of hypothetical, because as you probably know, the big companies all insist they’re not listening in on your every conversation. Call me a cynical bastard, but that’s one of the reasons I prefer the smaller operations sometimes. I’m not saying Pornhub or Brazzers are spying on you the way Facebook does, but they’ve got the resources for it. Joints like PrivateSociety.com, on the other hand, don’t come off at all like they might secretly be a data-harvesting operation. This is raw, real amateur porn shot all across America. It’ll cost you a few bucks to get in, but that’s arguably a much better deal than giving them access to your phone’s mic 24-7.
Private Society finds that comfortable middle ground between the scripted gonzo flicks and those unplanned backseat blowjobs where the iPhone comes out to grab a 17-second snippet. What you end up with is a style of smut where the girls are hot but largely unknown, and the stripped-down production values give the scenes a next-door vibe that your neighbor may have shot while you were jerking off to the Internet. It’s got the feel of real homemade porn without the short runtimes and blown-out broads.
Part of that formula is in the casting. There’s a big stamp toward the bottom of the page reading NO ACTORS, ONLY REAL PEOPLE. That’s true enough, because you’re not going to see any big-name video whores; none of the famous chicks the bigger sites slap all over the front page to get you to sign up. It’s a mix of newbies to the business and chicks you may only see just this once. They’re sexy and they love to fuck, but none of the current crop have made it to the big time yet. They have had some notable starlets pass through; India Summer got smashed on the site way back in 2008, when she went by the name Judy Olson.
Unless you watch plenty of porn, there’s a good chance most of the recent babes are going to be brand new to you. As a professional masturbator, I have a slightly better eye for these things. I can’t help noticing these lucky bastards have featured Aria Carson, a gorgeous young redhead I had the privilege of getting to know very intimately over on the PornDudeCasting couch.
It’s an impressive minute-long montage, to say the very least. I took in another preview; a 45-second peek into this dude Randy’s house as he has a couple of guests over. A cute brunette sucks his dick while a chubby chick watches, and the next thing you know, the bed is absolutely drenched in squirt. Again, it really does have a homemade vibe but with higher standards than the usual, short, right-above-the-pubes amateur vid shot on a phone.
The previews were enough to get me to the signup page to scope out the plans. At twenty-five bones a month for the standard monthly rate, PrivateSociety is a few bucks cheaper than you pay for a typical paysite. You get a decent break on the three-month plan, and the yearly membership breaks down to a cool ten bucks a month. Skip a cup of coffee every couple of weeks and you can have a pile of homebrew dirty movies instead. It doesn’t take a fucking rocket scientist or financial guru to see the value there.
I’ve always been the kind of pervert who appreciates both quality and quantity in porno, especially when it’s porno that costs money. Sometimes these semi-amateur sites will have slow updates because they’re essentially just one dude banging sluts in his spare time and uploading the videos when he gets around to it. PrivateSociety’s a lot busier than that, steadily putting out a flick or two every week. You aren’t going to be waiting around with blue balls for too long if you’ve already fapped your way through the collection.
But really, you ain’t going to fap your way through the whole Private Society collection, at least not anytime soon. The PrivateSociety.com domain was registered at the very dawn of the 21st century, meaning they’ve had literal decades to build up the collection. They’ve currently got nearly 700 movies in the library, a number that’s obviously growing fast. Despite the site’s longevity, they’ve been shooting in HD for most of their run, so you won’t be settling for Tetris quality videos even as you make your way deeper into the collection.
The limited filters do give you some means of digging through the pile, but it could be a lot better. For now, you can play with some dropdown menus that let you choose sex acts, states and performers. It isn’t totally crippled like some of the old sites with literally no filtering options at all.
Given the site’s age, I honestly can’t be that angry about the subpar tagging. The site clearly hasn’t pumped that much money back into their basic setup, keeping the design a little lo-fi instead of focusing on putting out high-quality amateur porno. There are other relics of the site’s age apparent as well, like how you can’t make your own Favorites list. One thing you oldsters will appreciate is that the membership includes both streaming and downloading, and I don’t think they’ve ever charged extra to save a little for later.
At the end of the day, PrivateSociety.com’s biggest selling points are the size of the collection and those raw DIY porno vibes. This is smut for those who love the amateur stuff but don’t necessarily want to settle for badly filmed snippets of ugly girls sucking dick. Check out the free videos out front and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. If it gets you all hard and drippy, just wait until you see the member’s area.
