The “Netflix for pirates” just became the “Netflix for porn.” The same torrent technology that has made Popcorn Time popular is now being used to distribute adult content online thanks to a new website called Porn Time. 

Porn Time is an app that enables users to find, download and watch pornography on their computers. It's built with the same app interface technology that Popcorn Time uses to distribute movies, only instead of showing the latest box office smash it lists popular porn torrents taken from the PornLeech tracker.

The app is currently available for Windows, Mac and Linux, with developer “Richard” telling TorrentFreak Android and iOS versions are on the way.

“We're proud to officially release Porn Time, the first Popcorn Time for porn movies,” he said. “How can it be that Popcorn Time has been around for over a year and no one has made Popcorn Time for PORN? Since everyone knows that the Internet is for porn.”

Indeed, Internet porn viewers already have several options to access adult content: paid websites, porn torrents or porn “tube” sites. These tube sites – Internet behemoths like PornHub, and Xvideos, to name a few – host thousands of pirated movies on websites that look much like YouTube. They then monetize that enormous amount of traffic (both are among the most frequently visited sites online) by selling advertising space or paying amateur performers based on how many times their video is viewed.

A series of news reports have documented how these sites, while hurting the porn industry financially, also spread malicious software and abuse the takedown process outlined under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

It's unclear whether the Porn Time founders had all this in mind when they created their Popcorn Time offshoot. But the app does continue in the Pirate Bay and Popcorn Time tradition of using technology to chisel away at corporate profits -- including those from the porn industry.
