Marc Stevens (February 9, 1943 – August 10, 1989) was an American erotic performer. He is sometimes credited as Mark '10½' Stevens or Mark Stevens.

Stevens was a pioneering sex industry figure during the 1970s in New York City. He appeared in over 80 pornographic movies, and he also led an erotic dance troupe and performed in live sex shows. While he predominantly appeared in heterosexual films and loops, he made a number of gay movies as well. He was a close associate of leading sex industry figures such as Jason & Tina Russell, Annie Sprinkle, who was also his neighbor for a time, Sharon Mitchell, Jamie Gillis, Georgina Spelvin and Gloria Leonard. Tall and lean with a well-defined musculature, he had the nickname "10½" because of the supposed size of his circumcised penis. He was famously photographed by Robert Mapplethorpe. He was bisexual.[1]

Stevens died of AIDS[2] in 1989, aged 46.[citation needed]

Despite his prominence in the 1970s and the fact he produced two memoirs (long out of print and allegedly ghost-written by his mother) one of which was named "10½!", Stevens has attracted relatively little attention since.

Notable films featuring Marc Stevens include:

Stevens was posthumously inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame on April 30, 2008.[3]
