    Yes. There are few layers to the web, the Surface web and the Deep web.

    A part of the deep web is called Dark Net/Dark web, this is the Dark side of the internet and what happens there is pretty nasty! They can only be accessed with certain browsers such as TOR. One of the most notable Operating systems is Tails which is a linux distro, created by the developers of TOR.

    TOR uses onion routing(long story short, your data goes through three nodes, the Guard Node, Relay Node and the Exit Node) to conceal the user/server location so that they can stay anonymous.

    The good news is, most of the Dark Net is Scam, what you hear/see on YouTube videos are fake. Because the real websites are truly hidden and they can be only visited by private invitation. Some of them are FBI Honeypots which are designed to full criminals into giving their location away, so that FBI can arrest them.

    Stay safe and don't visit the deep web without having the expertise in the area. It can be a dark place

    It does exist
    there was 'silk road' that was shut down by the FBI 4 years ago and there must be so many more marketplaces on the 'dark web' that they can't find/trace
    They just keep making new versions each time it gets shut down.

    Its filled with child porn, hitman for hire and drug sites
    "Filled with" isn't the way I'd put it. It's there, but it's not what it's primarily used for.

    It's real; created by the CIA so that they could have an untraceable/anonymous form of communication, but in order to make it truly anonymous they had to make it public.
    I heard this a while back on some youtube video. Same for you or?

    It's extremely easy to access, just use Tor. Also it's not like all the weird stuff just pops up, you really have to go looking for it and dig deep. A lot of the deep web is just old, unindexed pages. The illegal stuff is usually harder to find, sometimes changing their url often to prevent being tracked.

    I'd recommend not using windows, tails os can be good. There was another os called whonix.

    The livestreamed torture(sometimes called red rooms) aren't really confirmed true. You have to pay bitcoin before getting access, but I imagine a lot of them scam you out of your money. Also livestreaming on Tor, from what I've heard, is near impossible with the bitrate and speed.

    Pretty sure the red rooms are confirmed to be true

    Yes, the dark web is real - you'll need Tor to access it. I have played around on it because I was curious, and, honestly, it's quite a dangerous place. The things you can buy and the things you can do on the dark web is shocking.

      Honestly it's not all "big and spooky" as people make out. As long as you take common sense precautions, feel free. It's actually quite boring lol.

      Having read this whole thread, I'm now extremely curious I just want to see it.

      Is a proxy absolutely necessary (not my area of expertise)? Heeeelp.

      Reminds me of an experience I had when I was like 14.
      I found a .onion link on YouTube and didn't know how to open it, I then downloaded TOR and after copy/pasting the address in the address bar, and hitting 'enter', a video appeared.

      Now I can't really remember it but it was somewhere in Brazil or Mexico or something, the story was that some kid stole food or something... The local mob forced him out of his house, put a tyre around his neck, doused him in spirit or alcohol or something and then he suddenly lit on fire. That was the first time in my life and only time I become traumatised, I quickly scrolled down to the comments for some reassurance on it being fake, but people were only talking about how the tyre would melt onto him, so the fire couldn't be put out. He was around 5 years old, I can still hear his screams to this day...
