'Godfather of rough sex' says he's not a role mode for 'idiots' who try to copy him

'Godfather of rough sex' says he's not a role mode for 'idiots' who try to copy him

Rocco Siffredi is known for his aggressive style in porn, but says he's not to blame for violence towards women

The 'godfather of rough sex' has hit back at critics over his treatment of women.

Rocco Siffredi is one of the biggest names in the adult industry, with Netflix releasing a seven-part series about his life this week.

Check out the trailer for Supersex:

The explicit drama is 'loosely' based on Rocco's rise to fame, from his humble beginnings in a small Italian town to the sex clubs of Paris and porn sets of LA.

But over the years, the 59-year-old has come in for a lot of criticism over the way he treats his female co-stars.

Having performed in over 1,300 films, the 'Italian stallion' became known for being heavy handed with his partners, filming countless simulated rape and anal scenes.

"The consent part, it's not sexy"

Some have claimed in the past Rocco and other pornstars like him are to blame for young men thinking that this is what 'normal' sex is like, and abusing their partners.

But speaking to LADbible about his reputation, Rocco says young people get a 'distorted' view of sex from watching porn.

"Real porn, which is selling something that people want to see, it's not consent," he says.

"The consent part, it's not sexy; if you start to do everything like, 'Can I ask you, please, to kiss you?' Then people will be like, 'What the f**k is it that you show me?'

"So this kind of problematic goes to young people, they get distortion of vision, they don't understand... then they replicate this maybe with the little girlfriend, and that's when we have, unfortunately, the big accusations towards porn most most of the time."

"We are not educators for young people."

When asked if he takes any responsibility, Rocco was defiant, claiming he is not to blame for what people do in their own lives.

"No, because if you say that, you mean any type of movie," he explains.

"I have the actor who plays myself [in Supersex] who for the past five years has played a killer, he shoots people in the head every two seconds - so he should feel responsible for any stupid guy who goes around thinking he's Alessandro Borghi in Suburra?

"We are entertainment for adults, we are not educators for young people.

"The problem with pornography is that people think because we are f**king and we're not killing anyone, we're doing it the right way - that is the problem. We are entertainment."

Rocco says that porn, like regular sex, is all about consent, and how it's done completely depends on what the people involved want.

"There are only a few people who know what rough sex means"

He does accept, however, that guys sadly do watch him and try to imitate what they see on the screen.

"To me, porn is experimental sex that should be done with the right people," the retired star tells us.

"That means people who want to live this experience. Unfortunately, sometimes, people see my scenes and try to replicate them with girls; they say, 'This style is incredible, this guy is famous, I need to do Rocco style'.

"If you have an idiot who replicates you, who thinks it's enough to slap the face of the girl or spit or be rude, or be violent, and that means it's sexy, then that's the main problem."

He adds: "There are only a few people who know what rough sex means, only a few people in the world of pornography."

Supersex is available to watch on Netflix now.... just maybe not with the parents.
