spam and 5% "human" traffic.
I don't get why people use TOR for watching porn.

For all the same reason as any other type of traffic?

Porn is illegal (or quite restrictive) in many parts of the world, and if you know your ISP is observing traffic, why give them information that could be potentially used against you, even if only to embarrass you?

I have trouble seeing why it matters what type of traffic people are generating, unless it's abusive toward any of the networks involved (including the internet at large).
