Stevens was a pioneering sex industry figure during the 1970s, in New York City. He appeared in over 80 pornographic movies; he also led an erotic dance troupe and performed in live sex shows. He was bisexual, and while he predominantly appeared in heterosexual films and porn 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.
Notable films featuring Marc Stevens include:
- The Devil in Miss Jones
- All about Gloria Leonard
- Michael, Angelo and David
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 titled 10½!, Stevens has attracted relatively little attention since.
