Transportation Security Administration officers at San Francisco International Airport were in for a big surprise when Jonah Falcon, owner of the “world’s largest penis,” walked through security on July 9.
Falcon, 41, said he was on his way home to New York from a trip to San Francisco when TSA officers pulled him aside because of an abnormally large bulge in his pants.
“They asked me if that’s a growth — and I said no, that’s my dick,” Falcon told CBS San Francisco.
Falcon has been featured in documentaries and on HBO about the world’s largest penises, and has been interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine and The Daily Show.
According to Rolling Stone, Falcon’s penis is a whopping 13.5 inches long when erect, and 9.5 inches when flaccid.
Falcon said that even after he went through the full-body scanner he was frisked by security who still couldn’t believe the bulge was part of his anatomy. He said that the TSA officers did not touch him inappropriately and that he wasn’t very fazed by the incident. Turns out he isn’t very stingy when it comes to showing off his gift.
“What was the worst that was going to happen — I was going to have to whip it out for them? I’m used to that,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle. “Sometimes when people ask me about it, if I’m feeling up to it, I’ll just show them.”
