Private Media Group Wins Award, Honors for 'Open Invitation'

BARCELONA — Private Media Group’s film, “An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers Party in San Francisco,” was named one of the top three films of the year by The Night of the Senses 2011 Erotic Awards and won honors as the “Sexiest Straight Feature” in the Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards.

The company said the movie — the first in the Private Independent Line series for couples and females — has been a best seller since its release in 2010, having received critical acclaim and accolades for its innovative style.

Private Marketing Director Giles Hirst said, “’Open’ marks a significant cultural shift in the rapidly changing face of the traditional adult consumer from a male dominated audience to women and couples. We are very proud of this film for its artistic portrayal of the new modern day relationship and the industry’s overwhelming positive response to it."

He added, "Private will continue to expand on producing premium content for this important and growing audience.”

The 2011 Night of the Senses Erotic Ball is celebrating its 24th year on May 20 in London. Tickets can be purchased online, in select shops throughout London, or at the door.

Now in its sixth year, the Feminist Porn Awards were handed out in Toronto on April 15.
