The man who reportedly holds the world record for the largest penis was stopped and frisked by the TSA at the San Francisco International Airport on July 9. Jonah Falcon was stopped and frisked by the TSA because of a bulging package that TSA workers thought was being hidden in his pants. Falcon, 41 and from New York, was not carrying anything illegal except for his manhood.
“I had my ‘stuff’ strapped to the left. I wasn’t erect at the time,” Falcon said. Falcon’s penis when flaccid is 9 inches and when erect is 13.5 inches. “One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said, ‘Yes.’”
Falcon had a feeling things were going to go a little bit further when he was taken through an X-ray body scanner and then passed a metal detector.
“Another guard stopped me and asked me if I had some sort of growth,” Falcon said.
Falcon knew that he had something special growing in his pants by the time he was 18, when his penis was 12 inches. A documentary from HBO featured Falcon in 1999, putting his family jewel on display. This type of record is not held by the Guinness Book of World Records so his record has not been officially proclaimed.
