After serial killers and political figures, Netflix continues to show its interest in biopics and is interested in a figure from a completely different background: Rocco Siffredi, the famous and prolific pornographic actor.

If the name of Rocco Siffredi is known, his life remains a mystery for many spectators. This is why Netflix chose to dedicate a series to him entitled Supersex. Here is everything you need to know about this sulphurous new series.

Coming from a working-class and Catholic background, Rocco Tano grew up in Ortona, an Italian seaside town, and nothing did not intend him to have a career in the porn industry. On the contrary! And yet, after a brief stint in the Italian Navy, he swapped his last name for Siffredi and became a true porn legend. But who is he really ?

With Supersex, Netflix intends to dissect his existence, professional and personal, in seven episodes. The series offers us a dive into the life of Rocco Siffredi, from his origins to his career, without omitting his relationship and family problems.

As the first trailer for Supersex suggests, Rocco's brother had a determining role in his career choice. Tommaso doesn't mince his words: “Between the thighs of men and women, there is dynamite. It’s this energy that runs the world” he explains to his little brother, aged around ten.

In the trailer, the pornographic actor confides: “The more I became Rocco Siffredi, the more I understood how much it would cost me”. Thus, Supersex will not hesitate to show us a tortured and lonely Rocco Siffredi, which seems to be the price to pay for the pioneers. And this, no matter the environment.

On the bill for Supersex, we find Alessandro Borghi. Italian actor who starred in Suburra, Devils, Dalida or On my skin has the difficult task of embodying the famous Rocco Siffredi.

If he is accompanied by several actors and actresses from Italy, such as Jasmine Trinca ( On my skin), Saul Nanni (Alex & Co ; Love & Gelato), Linda Caridi (Last Night in Milan) or Vincenzo Nemolato (La Chimère), the actress French Jade Pedri (Parallèles ; Skam).

To discover Supersex, you won't have to wait very long. Indeed, Netflix is ​​giving us an appointment on March 6, 2024 to dive into the sulphurous life of Rocco Siffredi. Seven episodes will be available.

Supersex is not yet available on Netflix as, already, the series flows a lot of ink. Indeed, the pornographic actor was accused of sexual assault in the early 2000s. Guest on the show La Methode Cauetin 2006, the actor sexually assaulted Cécile de Menibus live. The host confided that the actor also behaved inappropriately off-camera, with her. During the same show, Florence Foresti was not spared either. Choosing, therefore, to highlight Rocco Siffredi with a series on the largest streaming platform, is enough to arouse the anger of Internet users.
