This Is The Porn That Gets Downloaded In The Vatican

It can get lonely in the Vatican: with a population of just over 800, sometimes it's inevitable that nobody will want to hang out with you. That might explain this list, which details the porn that's been downloaded in the Vatican recently.

Torrent Freak was casually taking a look at the most popular torrents within Vatican City, when it stumbled over some rather mature content. As Torrent Freak explains:

We spotted some downloads to get pulses racing. It seems that while Vatican dwellers aren't all that interested in Hollywood movies, they do enjoy adult related celluloid... In the interests of science we researched each of the titles (including the curiously named RS77_Episode 01) and discovered that downloaders in the Vatican have one or two unusual ‘niche' interests.

In the interest of remaining vaguely tasteful, we won't dive into exactly what those interests are here. But, hey, you have Google. Knock yourselves out. [Torrent Freak via Boing Boing]

    FWIW, "Touch.S02E05" isn't porn; it's a brilliant TV show from the creator of Heroes.

    First of all who cares? Also a torrent site that snitches on user IP, dafaq? Also not all people in the Vatican are clergies or even Catholic. Stupid shit this is.

      I'm not disagreeing, but I don't remember the free wi-fi in St Peter's. Who would have access to a Vatican IP address? I presume you'd have to live there or have a shop there in order to get access (visitors on phones/tablets would be connecting to Italian IP addies). Besides the clergy, that would just leave the Papal Guard (are they housed on site?) and the shopkeeps.

        If you know an IP, I'd guess you can use a service like this to see what it's been doing: http://www.mypiracy.net/ (although this one is limited to your own IP and it's not really accurate if you have a dynamic IP).

        I assume they've done something similar.

          I think you missed what I was saying... My question was, "Who would have access to a Vatican IP address?" In other words, "Who would have access to an internet connection in the Vatican?", not who would have access to their data.

          It's very simple for a tracker to identify who is clicking a link on their site, so that part of it is a no-brainer.

            Ahh, well that is a much more puzzling and interesting question.
