Someone among the 800 people who live in Vatican City, Rome is pirating heterosexual and transgender pornographic content from the Internet. According to the New York Post, while not many of the residents of the tiny city-state that houses the Pope’s residence are heavy technology users, someone is using bit-torrent to watch pornographic videos, although it is difficult to determine who.

The blog TorrentFreak.com enlisted the aid of anti-piracy service ScanEye to examine the downloading records of the residents of Vatican City. Among crime dramas and detective programs like “Chicago Fire” and “The Americans,” TorrentFreak found that someone had downloaded videos featuring adult performers Lea Lexis and Krissy Lynn, as well as transgender actress Tiffany Starr.

Torrenting is a form of file sharing that allows users to share media peer-to-peer, and is thus harder for authorities to track and monitor. According to TorrentFreak, no-one at the Vatican was willing to comment.
