Mr. Marcus Is the World’s Greatest Appreciator of Women

LOS ANGELES—No man is perfect, not even Mr. Marcus. But one thing that can surely be said of the iconic male performer is that he truly appreciates women. Not just some women, not just certain body types or looks, and not just women who exude a certain appeal … but all women. He is, at the end of the day, the ultimate equal opportunity appreciator.

Mr. Marcus has himself been an object of desire for many years, of course, with a fan base that no doubt includes myriad types of women (and probably more than a few men), but it was hip-hop magazine XXL that took note of the porn star’s uniquely discerning eye when it comes to women and asked him to offer up his list of the 50 Baddest Chicks.

The resulting pictorial gallery is not only, as the magazine puts it, “eye-popping,” but it reveals in gloriously living color the extent to which Mr. Marcus has fixed his field of appreciation across the spectrum of female celebrity. His Top 50 list includes athletes, singers, actors, a magazine publisher and of course models and adult entertainers of all shapes, sizes, colors and national origins, each of whom is provided a quick comment by Mr. Marcus.

We don’t really think the list is intended to rate the women from best to … less than best, but number one is the incomparable Janet Jackson, of whom Mr. Marcus says, “Encompasses all around sexuality. She's a woman with longevity and she plays really hard to get. Just nobody could get her. She seems hard to please, which I like."

Number two is Mya: "Classy, confident, sexy woman. She's an around the way girl, you'd love to get."

At number three, we get our first porn star, Heather Hunter, about whom Mr. Marcus is clearly a very big fan: "She's super talented, a pioneer in our business. Sexually, a lot of girls can learn something from her."

Other adult performers who make the male superstar’s list include Dee, Kayden Kross, Sunny Leone, Naomi Banxxx, Jenavive Jolie, Asa Akira, Silvia Saint, Kaylani Lei, Aryana Starr and Sophia Santi, to name a few.

Other non-adult celebrities include Rihanna, Anna Kournikova and Sofia Vergara, to name a few.
