Roko "The Porn King" Retires after 1300 Movies

Retiring from porn stardom with 1300 films under his belt, Italian actor Rocco Siffredi claims he is still up to the job but is quitting for "family reasons", the daily La Repubblica reported on Wednesday.

"My children are growing up, and I can no longer just say 'Dad is going to work to make money for the family.' They want to know more," he said of his two sons, aged seven and four.

"It's not my body, which is holding up very well, but for family reasons," he told the paper.

"When I started 20 years ago, it bothered me to see old guys around 40 filming with much younger girls. Now I'm 40 and it's time to go," he said, adding that he would go into filming and producing.

Siffredi described his wife of 13 years, Rosa, a former Miss Hungary, as "sweet and intelligent".

"She absolutely knows the difference between sex for work and sex for love," he said.
