A man known for his enormous penis was stopped by security at San Francisco
International airport and questioned about the bulge in his pants, he was
reported as saying Thursday.
Jonah Falcon, 41, has an organ which is 9.5 inches long when flaccid and 13
inches (33 centimeters) erect, according to Rolling Stone magazine. He has
featured in a number of documentaries about the world’s biggest penises.
He was returning to New York from San Francisco on July 9 when he was
stopped, after Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents saw a bulge
hanging down over his left upper thigh.
“They wanted to know if I had something in my pockets, and when I said no,
they asked if I had some sort of growth,” he said, according to the San
Falcon told them it was his penis, and they checked around his crotch, although
not too closely. He was delayed for five minutes. The incident was not his
first. “I’ve gone through the (scanner) before, and I wasn’t worried.
In a tweet at the time Falcon said: “TSA didn’t know what to make of the
massive bulge on my thigh. Even after I went through that body scanner that
shows you naked...”
“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. Sometimes when people ask me about it, if I’m
feeling up to it, I’ll just show them.”
A 2003 Rolling Stone story entitled “Mr. Big” reported that Falcon’s penis was
eight inches long when he was only 10 years old. It quoted his mother as saying
his organ size was genetic.
A baby boy was frisked by private screeners at Kansas City International
Airport after its stroller set off an alert. This photo was snapped by Reverend
Jacob Jester, an onlooker, who later posted it up on Twitter, and it went
viral, attracting more than 300,000 views.
THE uncomfortable and invasive security patdowns that US airports carry out has
come under scrutiny again. This time, it involves a 6-year-old child who
received a full patdown from a US airport security officer.
The girl's parents, Dr Todd and Selena Drexel of Bowling Green, Kentucky, said
that there should be different screening procedures for children.
They said that daughter Anna was confused by the security procedure at New
Orleans airport, and broke down with crying, because she really didn't
understand what she had done wrong.
'We were struggling to explain it to her, because we had really stressed to her
that it's not OK to be touched in certain places, and now she's been pat down
in a public setting,' said Anna's parents.
