An adult film actor named Mr. Marcus confessed to spreading the venereal disease syphilis across the adult film industry, after he admitted to submitting an altered STI test so he could continue to perform in sex scenes.
As reported by the AVN Business:
In a meeting yesterday at his studio, 18-year adult industry veteran Mr. Marcus sought to put to rest swirling rumors and identified himself as positive with syphilis and admitted to submitting a test he altered that omitted his syphilis status to producers so he could perform in sex scenes, but said he had sought treatment already from a private doctor and had received a penicillin shot to treat the disease, and had waited a recommended period of time before performing again.
The meeting at Mr. Marcus' studio was attended by this reporter, XBIZ Executive Managing Editor Dan Miller, FSC Executive Director Diane Duke, FSC board member and Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann, and Mr. Marcus himself.
Yesterday afternoon's meeting was the first time Mr. Marcus admitted to being diagnosed as positive for syphilis, performing three times after that diagnosis, and willfully doctoring one test from Talent Testing Service.
The porn star posted on Twitter yesterday:
"You can be disappointed, but don't throw stones. Some of you are living in glass houses."
The actor said that three women he performed with after his diagnosis have all tested negative for syphilis.
Mr. Marcus may get black balled from the industry ... pun intended?
