This is technically a peer to peer protocol, but not in the traditional sense. Instead of searching other users files for something you want, you download a file which is a 'map' to other users who have that particuler file. So you need to download a bitTorrent client, with which you load the 'map' file you have downloaded into, and it goes out and retrieves the files.

Pornographic BitTorrent Sites
Some popular websites that contain links to pornographic .torrent files are:
There are two types of torrent trackers: public and private. A public tracker is one that anyone can use. A private tracker requires membership, which is usually, but not always free. Private membership ensures that users upload as much as they download, as their ratio of uploading to downloading is measured by the tracker.
It is important to seed (upload) as much as you leech (download). In order to torrents to work well, users must give back at least as much as they take. This can include uploading new torrents of your own, but this is not required. All that is necessary to maintain a good ratio is to let other users upload data from you after you download a torrent. On a public tracker, there may be no consequences for leeching. On a private tracker, however, leeches can be identified and banned or limited.
