News you wish you didn't know.

Mr. Marcus identified as syphilis spreader in porn industry (VIDEO - just kidding)

Pornstar Mr. Marcus has admitted that he is the source of a syphilis outbreak that has shut down the LA porn industry.

A probe of the LA porn industry has identified Mr. Marcus as the source of a recent outbreak of syphilis.

Mr. Marcus has admitted to covering up his illness before shooting another sex scene.

Marcus said that he received treatment for the disease but tested positive again even after the treatment.

“My personal doctor doesn’t know what I do for a living,” Mr. Marcus told Adult Video News (AVN).

“So his thing was just don’t have any sex for 7-10 days. Once I did that shot I felt pretty confident. Every doctor I talked to up to that point said, ‘You get the shot. That’s it.’”

Yet, Marcus was tested again and returned more positive results, said the Daily News.

He shot a sex scene anyway.

He said when asked for the results of his recent STD tests, he showed the producer a certificate on his cell phone but covered up the part where it said he had syphilis.

“I showed that my HIV was clear, my gonorrhea and chlamydia were fine,” he told AVN.

“You didn’t see the syphilis part of the test because of the way I showed it.”

The syphilis scare reached new heights last Tuesday when pornstar Aletta Ocean said that she contracted syphilis in Hungary while shooting a film, reported the Daily Mail.

Yet, mysteriously, all of the women he worked with subsequently tested negative.

That said, the non life-threatening bacterial infection sometimes takes 90 days to show up in tests.

The scare shut down the industry for 10 days after eight pornstars came down with the illness.
