Rocco Siffredi (born Rocco Antonio Tano; 4 May 1964) is an Italian pornographic actor, director and producer of pornographic movies who is known for his rough sex scenes.[3][4]

He took his stage name from the character Roch Siffredi played by Alain Delon in the French gangster film Borsalino (1970).[5] Known as the "Italian Stallion", Siffredi has starred in more than 1,300 pornographic films.[1]

Pornography career

Siffredi met porn actor Gabriel Pontello in a French gay club in 1985 and was introduced to producer Marc Dorcel and director Michel Ricaud, who cast him in his first pornographic role, Attention fillettes... (Attention little girls...) in 1987, in which he performed anal sex on himself. Siffredi then stepped away from porn and worked unsuccesfully as a fashion model, returning to the business after two years with the help of porn actress Teresa Orlowski.[6] Siffredi went on to perform in both plot-based and gonzo-style pornography, with styles of sex ranging from ordinary to extreme. However, it was Siffredi's performances involving anal sex and analingus, as well as rough sex and his psychological intensity and athleticism, which earned him recognition and ultimately a cult following. Through collaboration with John Stagliano's Evil Angel studio and then his own Budapest-based Rocco Siffredi Produzioni as both a performer and director, Siffredi became one of the most powerful and recognizable personalities in pornography. "Rocco has far more power in this industry than any actress", Stagliano commented in 2001. Siffredi has credited Stagliano with being his lover through all 30 years of his career.[7]
