“MR. MARCUS” ADMITS SPREADING STD THAT SHUT DOWN PORN INDUSTRY!!!



(BlackMediaScoop) A male porn star has taken the blame for the current syphilis outbreak that has closed down the adult film industry in Los Angeles.

After Mr. Marcus contracted the bacterial infection on set, he altered his syphilis-positive test so he could continue performing.

The 18-year veteran actor’s admission came after the industry’s self-imposed 10 day moratorium which has seen more than 1,000 performers in the Los Angeles area get tested and administered preventative antibiotics.

At least nine porn stars have revealed they have contracted syphilis. According to XBiz Mr. Marcus said: “I tried to cover it up…because I said it was like the scarlet letter. It’s the word. Syphilis, whoa.”

“Mr Marcus, syphilis? Mr Marcus, the one I worked with? The one that everybody works with? The one that’s been in this industry forever?”
A doctor told Mr. Marcus that he would not be contagious 10 days after taking a shot of penicillin on July 13.

With that diagnosis he returned to work 11 days later, on July 24, still with syphilis. Instead of presenting a paper or digital copy of the test results he showed the producer a copy on his phone so the details about the infection were not visible.

While filming another porn film, Mr. Marcus said he folded the test to hide the syphilis diagnosis and photocopied it but a producer noticed the results were missing and questioned him about it.

He said: “I have to live with this, no one else does. I’m very sorry. I did not think that this would come out like this.” The actor said that three women he performed with after his diagnosis have all tested negative for syphilis.

The bacterial infection has a 90-day incubation period meaning a porn actor could potentially be carrying the disease without it showing up on tests.

Sex workers are supposed to undergo regular blood tests to ensure they are free of sexually transmitted disease.

It was reported that one of the labs frequented by porn stars does not test for syphilis. Syphilis is a treatable bacterial infection that can be spread by both bodily fluids and contact with infected skin.

Its causes skin lesions and rashes. If left untreated, it can permanently alter and damage internal organs and brain function. The number of syphilis cases in California has jumped 18% according to a recent report from the California Department of Public Health.

The results showed a much higher rate of men had contracted the infection and that African Americans were affected more than any other racial demographic. The outbreak is likely to bolster a ballot issue in November that aims to force all porn performers to wear condoms during pornography shoots.

Condom use has become of political issue in Los Angeles since a 2010 AIDs outbreak, which infected one performer.
