A man who has the world’s largest penis was stopped by security at an airport after guards feared he had a suspect package hidden in his pants.
Jonah Falcon was stopped at San Francisco International Airport as he went through the usual security.
The well-endowed 41-year-old was frisked and had white powder sprinkled on his pants to check for traces of explosives after a ‘very noticeable’ bulge in his clothing was interpreted by TSA agents as a potential ‘biological threat,’ the Huffington Post reported.
The former computer games reviewer has previously featured in a HBO documentary about the size of his manhood, which measures 9 inches limp and 13.5 inches when aroused.
He said: ‘I had my ’junk’ strapped to the left. I wasn’t erect at the time.
‘One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said ’Yes.’ I said, ’It’s my d**k.’
‘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.’
Falcon, who was also led through an X-Ray body scanner and passed a metal detector, added, ‘Another guard stopped me and asked if I had some sort of growth.’
He aroused suspicions at San Francisco Airport on his way to New York.
He said: ‘I’m just going to wear bike shorts from now on. That way, they’ll know. ‘You’d think they would have had experience with hung guys before, but I guess not.’
Mr Falcon became a minor celebrity in the U.S. in 1999 due to the size of his manhood after being profiled in Rolling Stone magazine and appearing on HBO.
