PHILADELPHIA — HotMovies.com announced today that it has donated a cache of foreign-language adult DVDs to The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.
The collection will add to the contemporary film holdings at the Institute, with titles from Japan, Italy, Germany, Turkey and France.
The company said that it accumulates adult DVDs for encoding purposes and while it keeps a hard copy of each of more than 150,000 movies on the site, sometimes providers send duplicates.
Over its nine years of operation, as many as 10,000 duplicates have been retained.
"We wanted to send these DVDs where they would be preserved," said HotMovies director of business development James Cybert.
He added, "The Kinsey Institute has been contributing to the science of human sexuality for more than 60 years. They have an impressive archive of academic studies, erotic art from all over the world, and now, foreign language erotic DVDs from HotMovies for future study."
The Kinsey Institute has an impressive library of material related to human sexuality. Its erotic art collection includes pieces from all over the world, and spans 2,000 years of human history. Its library boasts a photography collection of more than 48,000 images.
HotMovies said it is proud to contribute to the extensive film collection as the "HotMovies DVD archive still contains thousands of extra DVDs that still need a good home."
"We're still looking for a non-profit organization to give these to," Cybert said. "If you can suggest a charity that deserves a contribution, contact us with details."
