Last week, we shared the alarming and kinda gross news that popular porn star, Mr. Marcus, was spending a little quality time behind bars, for knowingly having exposed at least two female co-stars to syphilis last year. Last week, reportedly, Mr. Marcus who admitted having altered documents recording the results of mandatory medical tests all porn actors must take, pleaded no contest in Los Angeles Superior Court to knowingly exposing another to a communicable disease. Fast forward to a week later and the 42-year-old once popular porn star, is speaking out. In an interview with Baller Alert, he contradicts news reports and says that he initially had no clue he had the STD. Peep a few excerpts below.

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.

  • Bye

    There is something very strange about a man that mentions god when he is married and has sex with women for a living. LOL, these folks trip me out always calling on GOD and thanking him for blessings. Is that really Gods work…or are you just doing what you want for big $$ and all the risk of having sex in the sex industry? He ought to be lucky he doesn’t have HIV by now.

    You would think that all of the years he’s been doing porn he would know NOT to ignore anything around his penis? You would think the first thing to pop up in his head is that “okay this might be serious” …even if it was a rash most people go to doctors for that. He’s an idiot.

    • DIVA

      @ Bye – I TOTALLY AGREE! Well said.

  • Razzi

    How do you work in the sex industry for 20years and NOT know what common STD’s are out there??? We learned about syphillis in 5th grade sex ed. Something about his story isn’t clean!

  • Indy

    Ninja was it little brown spots or a damn rash?? Then you bought Carmex lotion? ROTFLMMAO!!! I cant take stories like this. I just cant. GOODBYE

  • YuckDaddy

    Neeever heard of Carmaex lotion

  • angela

    I do not understand how a grown man can say he never heard of syphillis. Who the F*&$% puts lotion on their penis because it looks like they have a rash. This kind of stuff is why people get sick and die! SMDH!

  • 2bme

    I need this fool to screen capture every single lie he has told behind this subject..a porn dude that doesn’t know EVERY disease when he and everyone else gets tested regularly for EVERYTHING? Boo stop, I can’t today..tonight or tomorrow..who was he trying to convince? That fool came too hard and lost all his braincells

  • m&m

    I’m a little confused, if he knowingly altered medical documents- then why is he saying he didn’t know? And I really think he must be talking about Cortizone lotion, not Carmex (ya big dummy- in my Red Foxx voice).

  • He said he has lost everything? He did not loose what he should have lost.His diseased male sexual part
