Netflix? More like Netfli-XXX.

The streamer’s new miniseries “Supersex” has been slammed on social media for being extra explicit, with prudish pundits promising to cancelling their subscriptions.

The steamy show is loosely based on the life of Rocco Siffredi, a famous porn star known as the “Italian Stallion.”

But subscribers were less than impressed when Netflix posted an excerpt of the erotic offering on its US Instagram account on Mar. 7, before it was mysteriously deleted.

Screenshots obtained by the Daily Mail show furious commenters blasting the streamer for promoting the porny series.

“Are we just making porn mainstream now? It’s pretty sickening that there is no warning on explicit content like this,” one raged.

“Now we have porn on Netflix as well? Cancelling account while we speak, my kids can’t see this,” a second user commented.

Another person chimed in: “Isn’t this inappropriate for a platform where KIDS FOLLOW YOU?!”

“It’s really sad that this is accepted in modern culture. The hyper-sexualization of our society and generation is depressing and degrading to the value of both genders,” a fourth railed.

“Supersex” premiered on March 6 and dove into the beginnings of Siffredi ‘s start in the adult film industry in 1986.

Alessandro Borghi stars as the adult entertainer in the seven-part series.

Borghi recently got candid about the show, calling it the “absolutely the most complicated thing I’ve ever made in my life.”

The Italian actor told the Independent recently: “I was not really sure [about representing] that kind of complex issue, especially in my country. You can talk about everything you want in Italy, but not about sex.”

“I really grew up with porn,” Borghi recalled. “It was my sexual education.”

Series creator Francesca Manieri also gave some insight about the series, telling the outlet that her “goal was to put men in front of themselves.”

“This is what we call the phallocentric system, the system in which the d–k is the centrum of the thought before everything,” she said.

“So what can you do right now, [in] 2024, to understand the relationship between men and women? And how can men put themselves in front of the image of their symbolic d–k and try to deconstruct all of this?”
