The TSA at San Francisco International Airport frisked New Yorker Jonah Falcon after noticing his "very noticeable" package as he went through security on July 9.
"I said, 'It's my dick,'" Falcon told the Huffington Post, which claims Falcon has the "world's largest penis." "He gave me a pat down but made sure to go around [my penis] with his hands. They even put some powder on my pants, probably a test for explosives. I found it amusing."
"I'm just gonna wear bike shorts from now on," Falcon to HuffPo. "That way, they'll know. You'd think the San Francisco TSA would have had experience with hung guys before, but I guess not."
Perhaps most surprisingly, HuffPo reports, "The Guinness Book of World Records does not record such feats, but Falcon did show his standout feature to Huffington Post executive editor Buck Wolf." Wolf's official title is Executive Crime & Weird News Editor.
Falcon has reported repeatedly that his penis is 9 inches long while flaccid and 13.5 inches long while erect. His Twitter profile even describes him as, "Actor/writer, with the 13.5." He appeared in a 1999 HBO documentary called "Private Dicks: Men Exposed." Allegedly, pornography outlets contacted Falcon about appearing in films, but he hasn't accepted.
San Francisco International Airport's TSA did not respond to HuffPo's request for comment.
Watch Falcon on TLC's "Strange Sex," broadcast in September 2011.
