Animals are being trusted with prophecy, and one of Italy’s most popular porn stars is refraining from sex — all in the name of football. Welcome to World Cup 2014!

Italian adult-film star Rocco Siffredi has pledged to refrain from sexual intercourse to support his national team during its stint in Brazil, according to a video published on the porn star’s Facebook fan page.

“Guys, I’ve had thousands of orgasms, but there is one I will never forget. The one I had together with all of you. Do you remember when we won the World Cup in 2006?” said Siffredi in the video. “So for that collective orgasm [to happen again] I am prepared to go without my orgasms.”

Italy is currently competing in the tournament’s Group D and play England in their first match on Saturday evening, local time.
