Jonah Falcon is something of a celebrity in his home city of New York for one very big reason: he is the owner of the world’s largest penis.
Measuring eight inches when flaccid and an impressive 13.5 inches when erect, the 41-year-old’s XL asset hit the headlines recently when the huge bulge in his trousers caused a security alert at San Francisco airport.
Today the well-endowed American told This Morning that the experience was nothing new for him and that he doesn’t see his over-sized appendage as anything special anymore.
He said: ‘I was amused. What was the worst that was going to happen? Would I have to pull it out for them?
‘I have been doing that all my life. It was more annoying that I had a two hour delay.’
Jonah, who is 5ft 9 and has size ten feet, realised from a young age that he was different from the other boys.
The average length of a flaccid male organ measures in at 3-4 inches; Jonah’s is double that at a staggering 8 inches in length.
Depending on temperature, his penis can grow up to 13.5 inches when erect, something that has often taken his friends by surprise.
He said: ‘I went to a mostly Jewish school, and I was the only one who was uncircumsised so I always thought that was what my classmates were fascinated by.’
It wasn’t under the age of nineteen that Jonah began putting his proud parts to the test.
‘I was pretty promiscuous. I am an actor and an only child so very much a show-off.
‘At baseball camp, people made a big deal out of it so then I just went hog wild,’ he said.
Up until the age of 25, Jonah was ruled by his surprisingly large penis, sleeping with lots of men and women: ‘I was trying to boost my own self-esteem and when I learnt that then I crashed and got burnt out, gaining weight I stopped caring.’
When it comes to relationships, Jonah, who has been single since 1996, finds that the women who stick around the longest are the older, more experienced one’s.
‘They have been on that road before, they have evolved beyond sex and are looking for something beyond that.’ he said.
And as for his sex life, he insists there are no complications.
‘I am extremely into foreplay.
‘I am a performer, when the other person gets excited and enjoys then I am happy.
‘I do have to be turned on, patience is the key, don’t expect me to get up immediately,’ he said.
And his hidden ‘talent’ has sparked worldwide curiosity: celebrities often call to ask him about it and Jonah has received lots of offers to join the porn industry which he continues to decline: ‘I can’t perform in public, I wear tight jeans but I won’t do anything in front of other people.’
He often has people stopping him in the street, but admits that’s because he enjoys wrapping his penis around his leg and wearing tight cycling shorts to make it all the more prominent.
And whilst Jonah has received a lot of attention, he is worried that it may actually have a negative effect.
‘I worry that it might cost me work. As an actor, do you think I’d ever work for Disney?
‘I do these shows because I enjoy talking and I fancy myself as very intelligent but in back of my head I think what am I doing this for?
‘There’s a very fine line between exploitation and prostitution and I concern myself with that; I think I have been on the right side.’
‘Having things come easy has made me lazy. I have just started putting effort in.
‘I am moving forward and may be older, but it’s better late than never, I feel like a teenager that is suddenly becoming adult.’
And asked would he change anything about himself and his headline grabbing trouser department he insists absolutely not.
‘This is me. When I look down on myself I don’t see anything special but I still enjoy having something special, everyone does.’
