A Third of the Pirate Bay's Uploads Is Nothing But Porn

  1. You'd have to be crazy naive to think piracy flag-bearer The Pirate Bay is free of porn, but you'll be forgiven for underestimating exactly how much is hiding out there. It's 35 percent. The Pirate Bay's new uploads last year were 35 percent porn, second only to TV and movies whichcombined make 44 percent. Meanwhile music hardly even registered at a mere 9 percent.

    The numbers come by way of a new study by TorrentFreak which not only shows that porn is a huge chunk of the Pirate Bay's 2013 uploads, but also that the share is increasing. The proportional percentage of porn-to-everything-else has leapt up a ton in the last year alone.

    TorrentFreak illustrates it best with this handy chart:

    Aside from the increasing prevalence of porn (will it take the lead next year!?) maybe the other most interesting tidbit is the relatively lack of audio uploads. Compared to almost every other category, audio has been virtually stagnant since roughly 2008. And while the birth of streaming music services may have halted its growth, it also doesn't seem to have made a dent.

    It's fascinating data, and you can check out all of it in its extremely detailed glory over at TorrentFreak. Or you can just visit the Pirate Bay and do some hands-on...research. [TorrentFreak]

  2. Wouldn't you be guilty yourself? :pity2:
    @Shadow for sure.

    I know my friend always comes over and downloads porn at my house.
     
  3. I'm a perv but I don't think I've ever downloaded porn :hmm:
     
  4. There's no need to feel guilty, I don't think I've really ever downloaded porn though.
     
  5. Who even bothers to d/l porn? Shits freely available to stream.
     
  6. 3/5 of the top movie uploaders are 90% porn, its annoying as fuck. It was funny the first few times but their new uploads are literally 1-3 movies and 40+ porn per fucking page, all the same porn from each user it seems since they all get the same movies also. Annoying. As. Fuck. Learn to stream the shit ffs
