I've dipped my toe into this kind of thing before and, trust me, it goes way beyond anything that you may have found disturbing on the regularly accessed Internet.
I wouldn't suggest anyone going into Tor or similar programs unless they have an actual end-game... Something specific they are looking for.
You can quite easily stumble into the kinds of places that you don't want to be (I assume you wouldn't want to be there).
It sort of reminds me when the Internet was a brand new thing in the early-90s and it was basically anarchy and lawlessness when you went slightly beyond the surface layer of information.
That stuff has been pushed further and further down the information super highway and you pretty much have to go out of your way to find it these days. It didn't used to be like that. You could be innocently checking out news groups and things that can't be unseen would pop up on your screen.
That is pretty much what Tor is... The old-school inner layer of the informational super highway. These days, you have to actually make a decision to go down that dark, dangerous road.
Like I said... Unless there is a topic that you are really curious about, I'd stick to the main drag.
