Only TV shows and movies managed to beat the amount of porn uploads The Pirate Bay had last year.
It's no secret that lots of porn materials are littering the internet and torrent sites, but the latest numbers from TorrentFreak revealed just how much smut there is people upload on premiere bit-torrent site, The Pirate Bay. According to the findings, 35% of The Pirate Bay's uploads last year consisted of porn-related materials. This statistic was beaten only by "TV and Movies" which, when combined, managed to take 44% of the total figures. As for other categories, Music only accounted for less than 10%, while video games only managed to account for 2%.
The handy graph below gives us a look at how uploads changed from 204 to 2013 -- though as you can see, porn always managed to take a big chunk of the share year after year.
Again, people trawling for porn on torrent sites is nothing new; but to think it almost edged out TV shows and movies combined, it just shows us exactly what people use torrent clients for the most.
Are you surprised at all at how much porn people upload? If you don't believe the stats, you can always go to The Pirate Bay yourself and erm, "check" if it's true.
