In a May 2012 interview with Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, Goffman recounts some of the experiences that shaped the play's content, saying, "When I was 10, I discovered my dad's porno tapes and became obsessed with them. When I was 15, I had sex with Stacey Lititto. We called her Stacey Libido. It was good, but she didn't have an orgasm, and she didn't even know how to fake one yet!”
The Accidental Pervert has now expanded its horizons worldwide with the show running in over 14 countries on 4 different continents and a multitude of licensing deals by international producers, theaters, and television/film celebrities playing the role of the Pervert world wide.
