I only use TOR on imageboards and other dodgy websites where there's an actual risk of my IP being leaked/malicious assholes behind it (Just look at fucking 8chan for a shining example of the incompetence of the people running it and storing IPs for years). It does help if you don't want the owner of a website harassing you with your general geolocation or, if the person targeting you is sufficiently advanced, looking through DB breaches and comparing IPs.
Not to mention onion sites remind me of the old internet and having access to this normally hidden section yields some pretty interesting experiences and information.
You aren't ever gonna hear people admitting to using TOR, especially not the public figures like Journalists or even government workers. Simply admitting to using it is a security risk, and if you're using it because of the country you're in, they won't be happy to learn about your activities. (China will make you disappear into the night, never to be seen again: Killed and ground into burger patties).
