Rocco Siffredi, the Italian stud who rivals female porn stars of the caliber of Moana Pozzi, Stoya, Sasha Grey and Cicciolina, has changed the adult film industry by drawing attention to its male stars. Siffredi seems to have no limits and he enjoys his sex performances as much as he loves to get paid for them. He started as an actor in small porn films, but his "size" and very aggressive attitude made him a superstar. His videos are among the most sought after and his performances often outshadow those of his female partners. Rocco enjoys many different types of sex and his fans seem to be very fond of his style.
Due to Siffredi's great success and strong cash flow, it wasn't long before he was able to start and fully finance his own production company. Italy forbids the actual shooting of porn films, so most of Rocco's performances take place in Eastern Europe, although he is able to take full advantage of the Italian market for distribution. With modern technology and the Internet available to them, people can access these videos from anywhere in the world. Rocco Siffredi is a cash machine and probably one of the most successful adult film actors ever.
A funny parody on Rocco Siffredi in Italian
In his private life, Rocco is married to a former colleague and porn actress, has two children, and freely continues his career without any objections from his wife. Although he announced his retirement in 2004, he has still been very active. In 2015 he took part to the reality show Celebrity Island, and in 2016 he was protagonist with his family of a TV series about their daily life, Casa Siffredi.
Siffredi exhibits complete comfort with sexually explicit scenes and a totally natural approach to any sexual situation. He clearly treats women like objects, and he doesn't mind to be treated as one either. Often harsh and sometimes almost violent, his videos are famous for featuring very rough sex.
A famous spot with Rocco Siffredi, rich in double entendre
Although male porn stars have been traditionally outnumbered by their female colleagues, Siffredi has become a true brand name. Some men see him as a role model and apparently enjoy the way he treats women, while the female audience seem to love his attributes. Of course, many condemn his act and what he represents, but Siffredi doesn't really care and actually goes on to regular TV shows to talk unabashedly about his work any time he has the opportunity.
In his early life, Siffredi tried modeling and breaking into the regular film industry, but the porn universe seemed to be his best fit. While many are trying to limit and control the adult film industry, Rocco Siffredi forges straight ahead, remaining untouchable and always raising or lowering the bar of what is acceptable, guided by his personal morality and values. As his company grows, so does the number of new actors and actresses that he introduces to the porn industry, and he makes sure to always personally try the new material. It is a bit sad to speak in these terms, but his content leaves very little room to define it otherwise.
Anyway, if Cicciolina made the world news in the 80s and she was not even Italian, Rocco Siffredi is definitely making news today, and ironically is probably the most recognizable Italian actor in the world.
