VAN NUYS, Calif.—Famed Italian director/performer Rocco Siffredi took inspiration from his home country for his first foray into the porn parody genre, XXX Fucktory: The Parody Italian Style, due out from Evil Angel April 1.
The movie spoofs the Italian version of popular talent competition show X Factor. "Normally, I am not a big fan of parody," Siffredi said. "Parody for me means comedy, and when people are laughing, they cannot jerk off at the same time. That kept me always a little far away from this."
His mind was changed, Siffredi said, when he noticed the striking resemblance of a certain starlet to one of the hosts on the Italian X Factor. "I met Emylia Argan, the true alter ego of Arisa, the Italian singer and star judge of X Factor in Italy," he explained. "I was completely smashed and I had no doubt that I had to do something with her. So at that point I decided to make XXX Fucktory as a parody of the four Italian judges in X Factor."
He continued, "I discovered a side of me which I never explored before directing comedy. The movie is lots of fun, with funny moments thanks to Omar Galanti and Mike Chapman. They are fantastic comedians."
He also gave major credit to his cousin Gabriel Zero, who wrote the script. In the movie, contestants perform theatrical sex in front of the panel of judges, who are all in absurd costumes. And Siffredi claims the show's real judges have taken notice of his lampoon.
"I have received phone calls from all of the judges, and all were enthusiastic that I make this movie," Siffredi said.
Among the sexual acts that take place in the movie is a Siffredi first, something he described as a "Rocco Reverse POV, which is me in front of the camera. Behind the camera is a girl, and I am masturbating for her." He said the idea was "basically to make women happy, and hopefully I can imagine many gay fans will appreciate it."
In conclusion, Siffredi said his wish for viewers of XXX Fucktory was that, "If they cannot laugh, I hope they can jerk off."
