Someone using computers in Vatican City has been pirating fetish pornography videos, according to an analysis by a company that monitors BitTorrent downloads.
At least three pornographic films were illegally downloaded onto a computer with an IP address located in the Vatican earlier this year, according to ScanEye, a company that has also tracked illegal downloads to Congressional IP addresses. One of the videos, “Lea Lexis and Krissy Lynn,” features two women whipping each other. Another video, named “RS77_Episode 01,” stands for “Russian Slaves.” A third, titled “BDSM Sklavin Züchtigung im dunklen Hobbykeller teen fesselspiele,” roughly translates into “BDSM slave punishment in the dark basement workshop.”
Besides those videos, computer users in the Holy See downloaded decidedly more mainstream videos, including “Love Actually,” and episode of the NBC drama “Chicago Fire” and a bootlegged version of “Snitch,” a recent release that stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
All of the videos were downloaded between mid-January and late March.
While there is no way to know exactly who downloaded the videos, it likely wasn’t newly-installed Pope Francis, who started after most of the films had been downloaded.
