Now He Goes to Jail: Adult Film Star Arrested for Spreading Syphillis on the Job

By  |  63 Comments


You might recall a big scare in the adult film industry last fall.  The industry as shut down as a result, since the safety of workers was severely affected.   It also led to calls that all employees starring in these films start using protection, since they are also putting public health at risk.

There has been a new development in the story.  “Mr. Marcus,” a 19-year vet in the industry, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for knowingly exposing syphilis to his co-workers.

Mr. Marcus, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, found out about his bacterial infection in advance, but hid his test results so that he could keep making money performing.  This leads some to wonder how often this happens in the industry.

He pleaded no-contest to the allegations against him, and was also given 36 months of probation, along with 15 days of community service.   We just hope he isn’t working with kids and that he washes his hands after going to the bathroom.  Just kidding; not really.

After the little incident last August, the industry had a 10 day moratorium, where 1,000 workers were tested and given preventative antibiotics.  A total of nine stars got syphilis during the outbreak.

“I tried to cover it up…because I said it was like the scarlet letter. It’s the word. Syphilis, whoa,” said Marcus.

When the doctor gave Mr. Marcus his shot, he was told that he would be contagious for 10 days.  So, he came back to work on the 11th day, still infected.  Instead of showing a paper copy of the test results, he showed the producer a copy on his phone, where the results would not be legible.  This shows us just how meticulous the industry is when it comes to investigating the health of its workers.

Mr. Marcus said this on Twitter: “You can be disappointed, but don’t throw stones. Some of you are living in glass houses.”

Just so you know, there is a 90-day incubation period for the disease.  So, a person could be carrying it without it showing up on tests for quite a long time.  It was also reported that labs where industry stars are tested don’t actually look for syphilis.  Sadly, African Americans have the greatest rate of infection of most STDs, so be careful about what you allow into your bedroom.  You should at least ensure that you see recent test results for several STDs before sleeping with someone.  Mr. Marcus is not the only one.

      You’re “connected” only because you’ve allowed someone to categorize your humanity into a sub-human sort of a “kind” of missing-link. I’m a part of ONE “race”…and that would be the human “race.” Every human being is responsible for his/her own behaviors and contribution to the betterment of the world…which begins with just ONE!

    I thought we learned something about this disease years ago and that it can be a life sentence (Death) to most people. What’s bothering me is the fact that they haven’t exposed the other person that gave him to diease nor all the people that he infected with this diease. I think in this day an time you have to be very careful, because most people with illnesses are not willing to share that information with their sexual partners. I petsonally think he should have received a longer prison
    Sentence, because he lied and tryed to cover up the truth and by doing so, he affected a lot of innocent women. Maybe it’s time to close those industry’s down, because they are in our communities!!!

    30 days?? He should have gotten 30 years. As sad as it may sound, today every man and woman should go to the doctor for a physical. before engaging in sex with each other. If he or she don’t want to go with you “drop them like they are hot” for they probably are.

    They all played and paid. People in this industry know the risk. I’d not be surprised if I went out and screwed 50 people unprotected to later discover a party favor or other gifts that keep on giving. STD treatment, if available, is what porn money is for…

    June 6, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    His nick-name now should be Mr. Syphillis.


    June 6, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    I think he was worried more about getting LAID than getting paid….How about ‘da syphillis man.

      You know in “America” we as “Black Americans” always have the worst of everything. It makes me so damn angry. You better believe if there is an illness “Black Americans” has “the worst” of it. Every illness there is “Black American” has the highest incidence of it. Yet when I visit a doctor’s office all I see are “other people”. I do not know if that is because we cannot afford to go but I sure get tired of hearing we have the worst of everything and yet we are the smallest group of people!!!

    Whoever wrote this article is just determined to label black people as disease speaders. African Americans do not have the greatest number of infections. The greatest rate is determined by percentages. A smaller group will always have a higher rate because that is the way numbers work, but that does not mean more cases.

    If you compare two groups: Group A and Group B

    Group A has 100 people and Group B has 10. If 3 people are infected in Group B, that is a 30% rate. If 20 people are infected in Group A, that is a 20% rate, but there are 7 times more infected people in Group A than Group B.

    If Group B interacts with Group A, its rate will increase. You do the math and stop spreading these lies. Race does not determine condition, behavior determines condition.

    It just shows wear protection when having sex.Because you might not know if your sex partner is carrying some sexual disease.Mr. ”Syphilis” Marcus didn’t put in consideration or care for that matter that he was putting people heath in danger of catching his sexual disease.He was only thinking about himself and making money at the expense of infecting his sexual partner with Syphilis.He should be ban from the porn industry.

    I am glad the young man was exposed and the industry had a cooling off period. But has anyone heard of a porn star name John Holmes? He was said to be the greatest porn star of all times. He allegedly contracted aids but they did not shut the industry down!! I am saying whatever the “Black American” has it is worst. Just pulled a picture of him up and wow!!!

    Why send Mr. Marcus to jail? Send the low life, economic/human exploiters, {owners} of the porno industry to jail! They employ mostly young unskilled/uneducated street type people to make these movies; while milking millions/billions, In the mean time, Mr. Marcus and others porn actors get the crumbs off the table!!!!

    Have you checked that Link!!. The study was comparing African America’s with Asians/pacific Islanders. It does not even include whites or hispanics. Based on the Asian culture when it comes to marrige and sex it’s no dout that any other ethic group would be a larger rate. This is faulty suggestion that is not based on all acurate and holistic information and should not even been mentiond. Quit being lazy in your resarch and show some real stats so it doesn’t look like African Americas or just sexual disease toteing deviants.

      Syphillis is a STD which means that he caught it from some Nasty Ass Woman. Where is She? How many more men have been infected by her?
