Vatican City

Does Someone There Watch Porn?

... Is the Pope Catholic?

Vatican City has at least one porn lover on the loose -- someone who's frequently logging on to a popular porn website ... and TMZ has learned there's a good chance it's a woman.

The site is called sssh.com ... which bills itself as porn for "open-minded women who enjoy exploring their sexuality" -- and a rep for the site tells us a routine check of data revealed the IP address of one their members leads back to the Vatican.

We're told the user (or users) visited the site at least once a month for the past year, with November 2013 being an especially busy month ... with 19 visits! 

The rep for sssh.com tells TMZ, "It just shows that a healthy interest in erotica is something that can be found anywhere -- even within the Vatican."

We reached out to the Vatican, but haven't heard back. They probably have their hands full.

so why are websites (porn or otherwise) identifying it's viewers by IP number? it's a bad precedent and very, very unethical.

Mr. Mystery    

The answer to the question, "Does someone at the Vatican watch porn?", would be the same as "Does someone at The Pentagon watch porn?" or "Does someone at The 'White House' watch porn?", or
"does someone at TMZ.com watch porn?".

Now, the REAL questions beg:
Is this news-worthy?
How will this affect our lives?
and, does McDonald's take checks?

Could be someone spoofing the IP address. But I wouldn't expect TMZ to know what that is.

You can disguise IP addresses. Americans watch Canadian Netflix for different movies every day..........but this is just a paid advertisement for the site disguised as a EXCLUSIVE STORY. Pope Frank forgives everyone, though.

First of all, can't you at least print articles with correct grammar? Also, did it occur to you that they look at the sites as research to know what people are doing or watching so they can better understand what they are working against? If they only logged on once a month, that's evidence of just checking it out and not using it for whatever you are insinuating a nun is doing. You guys at TNZ should be disgusted with yourselves. I'm not even catholic and you make me sick to my stomach with this story. KARMA
