Vatican caught watching trans, bondage, and lesbian porn

Pornography has been downloaded and shared in the hub of the Roman Catholic Church

Vatican caught watching trans, bondage, and lesbian porn
10 April 2013

Someone in the Vatican is illegally downloading hardcore pornography featuring transgender stars, bondage and lesbians.

Discovered by Torrent Freak, an American website that analyses file sharing, a number of films and pornographic clips were downloaded in the hub of the Roman Catholic church.

The Vatican is home to around 800 permanent residents, including the newly elected Pope Francis, as well as priests, officials and security.

‘Over in the Vatican, pirates are having the time of their lives downloading some quite eye-watering media. 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,’ the writers of Torrent Freak said.

‘There isn’t a commandment that covers these films directly, but some might argue there should be.’

Torrent Freak listed the films downloaded to an IP address, which includes a lesbian film starring trans performer Tiffany Starr.

A German title can be loosely translated as ‘Teen slave punishment games in dark basement workshop.’

The list does include some more mundane titles, like British romantic comedy Love Actually and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 2013 action film The Last Stand.

The Vatican has declined to comment.
