VAN NUYS, Calif.—Private Media, one of the world's most innovative, brand-driven, multimedia adult entertainment companies, embodying beauty, sensuality and luxury, captured three Adult Video News (AVN) Awards at Saturday night’s ceremonies in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Barcelona, Spain-based company, in conjunction with its production partners Magik View Entertainment, will return to Europe with three trophies from the "Foreign Production" categories. Private’s DVD titles are distributed in the U.S. by leading adult video distributors Pure Play Media.

Ass Trapped Undercover, released in February of 2012, was recognized as the Best Foreign Feature. The erotic thriller of international intrigue and sexual escapades was directed by multiple award-winning director Ettore Buchi and starred Donna Bell, Mela, Kari, Melissa Ria, and Viktoria Diamond. In the film, after months of preparation, Naval Intelligence agents Lenny and Mela pursue a group of sexual terrorists lead by crime boss Ian Scott. Since the success of the operation depends on the agents' intimate involvement, the kinky duo use any means necessary to infiltrate and break up one of the largest sexual terrorist rings in history.

In the Best Foreign Continuing Series category, Private and Magik View won for their Art of Penetration titles.  Spanning across both the Private Gold and Private Specials lines, titles comprising this series in 2012 were all directed by Ettore Buchi and included Anal Illusion with Tarra White, Cindy and Satin Bloom and Eufrat; Fucking Filthy Fantasies with Victoria Sweet, Nessa Devil, and Kristy Lust; and Euro Pornstar Fuckfest with Tarra White, Cindy Gold, Rihanna Samuel and Carla Cox.

Magik View Entertainment founder Ettore Buchi was once again acknowledged for his directorial efforts; this time in the Best Director–Foreign Non-Feature category for Adventures on the Lust Boat 2. Released in June of 2012, the title stars Angell Summers, Laura Crystal and Kristy Lust. A story set aboard a cruise liner whose passengers and crew are surprised with a variety of naughty adventures, the lustful ship swaps its Mediterranean course for a special kinky itinerary filled with lustrous adventures going down on this cruise ship.
