Baller Alert Exclusive: P0rn Star Mr. Marcus Talks Infecting Co-Stars With Syphilis, STD Ignorance & More

You might remember last summer, the adult film industry was hit with a syphilis scare and shut down. P0rn stars had to get shots and tests to prove that they weren't infected with the STD, syphilis. Patient zero in this case was none other than the famous veteran adult film star, Mr. Marcus. Rumor had it that Mr. Marcus altered his syphilis test so he could shoot a few p0rn scenes. Pictures hit twitter of his infected penis with sores everywhere (CLICK HERE TO VIEW NSFW PIC) and I went on a long twitter rant about it that summer. It didn't hurt MY pockets, but other acquaintances of mine had to stop filming because of the syphilis outbreak.

 

 

Last night on twitter, I came across this article from Huffington Post about Mr. Marcus, real name  Jesse Spencer, spending time in jail and him being sued in civil court. I once again took to twitter, laughed about it and threw some shots at him. Only this time Mr. Marcus  replied back, there was some brief twitter beef between us last night. He said some things, I called him "a walking 2012 Tuskegee experiment.", and well we went back and forth. Marcus tweeted that he'd call me and tell me his side of the Syphilis fiasco. As soon as Mr. Marcus and I exchanged some non-pleasant pleasantries he jumped right into it.

 

On Whether He Intentionally Infected His Co-Stars With Syphilis

"I did not go out there and try to f***ing intentionally get anybody infected. From my heart man, up to God, I thought it was something that was just a skin rash. I went out and bought some damn Carmex lotion (it's an everyday hydrating lotion), I put it on [my penis] and I thought it made it look better. That coupled with things going on with my hands, little brown spots or whatever, I looked things up on the internet and I'm telling you, only thing that came up was a vitamin deficiency and that I need more vitamins. I went out and bought vitamins and Carmex.

 

Syphilis is called the great imitator it supposedly looks like other diseases, problems, symptoms and it's never related to just a std. 20 years in this business and only STD's I was aware of is gonorrhea and chlamydia.

 

You gotta understand that when I worked with that girl I had a FRESH test. NOTHING came back saying, hey you need to go to the doctor, get a checkup, a shot, not a single damn thing. I used the lotion and it made it look better."

 

 

On Wishing He Handled The Situation Differently

"In hindsight, I wish I did it way differently but I DID NOT KNOW and I wanna make that very clear. By the time my doctor's appointment came around, back on July 11th or so, he was like 'your symptoms look like it could be syphilis.' First time I ever heard that word. The doctor said it's easy, it's a simple fix (shot in the rear), a simple bacteria, look it up, syphilis is non contagious 24 hours after that shot. The medicines worked because not a single person I worked with before, during, or after that shoot was infected and that's the truth, that's the bottom f***ing line."

 

 

On How His Life Has Changed Since The Syphilis News Broke

"I've lost a lot. I've struggled because of this. I just had to go to court, to jail and been on the front page news. I paid the price. I wasn't trying to f*** anybody over. I went and got the shot and did exactly what the doctor told me to do. I even waited 11 days (before having sex).

 

 

It's unfortunate I went through this s**t, it's part of being in the adult film industry.  STD's DO happen. It happens. People catch STD's often. You know what the difference is? They get privacy. They go through it in a private matter and nobody has to know, they go get it treated and come back and get re-tested."

 

 

On People Learning From His Mistakes

"The most important thing if you're a young man/sister having sex, go get tested, look for things, go to your doctor, do it regularly especially, if you're promiscuous. If you really ain't sure throw on a condom and you won't have to go through what I'm going through. I hope all this s**t is for a reason and people learn a lesson from it. A lot of people don't know, get embarrassed and feel ashamed because they have a STD, that's what makes people hide it because people make 'em feel like s**t if you test positive and especially if you're promiscuous."

 

 

Wow, right? Yeah, I felt a tad bit bad on how I went in on Mr. Marcus last night on twitter. During our interview all I heard was a man that's being tormented. Marcus is LEGITIMATELY sympathetic to this whole fiasco. Marcus stressed to me that he wanted his fans and everyone reading this to know he did NOT intentionally do this. It wasn't out of spite and he, legitimately thought that it was a skin rash. NOW, I had to *side eye* him because *I* know if my vagina had sores all over it, I'd be in my GYN, legs spread apart on that table and asking what is THIS. I wouldn't search on WebMD or Google for "pimples on vagina lips." feel me? He definitely regrets that decision and wished he could do things differently...but, we all know that we can't go back and correct or f***ups.

 

Later during our interview, I asked Mr. Marcus questions about other folks in the industry, have they stood by him, how he feels and if he's been hired to shoot p0rn again. He talks about jail and how him and his family have been affected. Stay tuned for these questions and more on balleralert.com and follow me on twitter, @MizCaramelVixen.

Okayyyyy, so don't STDs burn or something?? And you're right, If I even SUSPECTED any kind of irritation or anything, I would be spread eagle all in some doctor's office!

Comment by AllyNWonderland on June 12, 2013 at 8:29pm
AlterEgo... Did you just ask if STDs burn!?!! If that were true many people would know they have more than just STDS, but unfortunately his ignorance is like a lot of people's. they turn to the damn Internet and google rather than going to the doctor smh
Comment by HeavenSoExtra on June 12, 2013 at 8:57pm

His penis looks like Craig Mack's face...annnd he put lotion on it?? This is what I'm reading: He figured he might have something but he wasn't sure if it was HERPES or not so he didn't want to go find out right away. He was blissful in his ignorance. I think he was afraid to find out what it was in case it was something incurable.  He tried to self medicate and he knew it would be traced back to him. This is why porn performers need to wear protection.

Comment by Eleven8 on June 12, 2013 at 9:18pm

I get two things from this:

I think he saw the rash on his hands, rash on his penis, and it didnt click STD to him. Didn't burn, didn't have a discharge, it just seemed like a skin thing. Now, instead of going to the doctor like he should have, he hit up Dr. Google. Unfortunately, symptoms can look like other things and in his case it looked like a vitamin deficiency instead of what it really was. Like Heaven said, ignorance is bliss and in this case when he found something that appeared to match his symptoms he was cool with his ignorance, not thinking much more of it because tests didnt say otherwise.

Fact is, sooooo many people are ignorant of STDs because they think all STDs are the same. They dont all burn. They dont all cause a discharge and they dont all show external signs. Folks out here walking around with s*** as simple as HPV and have no clue. In school they show us the extreme ass pictures but forget to tell us that not all cases are the same. With that said, I feel bad for him knowing that so many people in the porn industry are walking around infected with way worse. And to play devil's advocate I can see why he didnt hit the doctor right away. now if it were ME i would be at the doctors office.....I just dont play with my vajayjay nor my health like that lol

Comment by AlterEgo on June 12, 2013 at 9:37pm

Lol excuse what your opinion is of my "ignorance"; I actually used to mentor youth on STD's, and typed before I thought... I guess I need to clarify- I am well aware of what a possible symptom of a sexually transmitted disease can be. From HPV to the drips and burns... I guess since my pootie is always looking the same, non-physical per say symptoms slipped my mind; as I don't have such

Comment by Aly Q on June 12, 2013 at 11:25pm
Most men actually do NOT experience STD symptoms until months after an infection has occurred. STDs affect men and women completely different. Some men go months or years without knowing they are infected. Rashes, burning, and other irritation may not happen for months. It's possible that as a porn star he has had rashes before and they were not STDs. Also most men are unaware of an infection until their partner is infected and weeks to months later experience symptoms like an odor or irritation this bringing it to his attention.

Ok, So maybe I can believe him when he say he didn't know he had it. But with a rash on his d***, you would think that the smart thing to do would go to the doctor. I run to my doctor for the simpliest things. But what I can't believe is that a grown ass man has never heard of Syphilis. Especially being in the industry that he's in, he should know all about every STD out there.  That i'm not buying! Sorry! Try again.

@heavensoextra get in the corner!! Craig Mack's face? Lmaooo
Comment by BlkButtafly on June 13, 2013 at 8:44am

I just can't believe that you would go into the adult film industry and the only STDs that you know of are gonorrhea and chlamydia. *side eye*
