Jonah Falcon, 41, who has been featured in multiple documentaries about unusually large penises, said he was preparing to depart San Francisco International Airport to return to New York July 9 when he was stopped by Transportation Security Administration agents who noticed an unusual bulge in his pants, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.
"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.
Falcon said he was patted down and the agents "checked the area around it" but didn't frisk his genitals too harshly.
Falcon, whose penis measures 9 1/2 inches while flaccid and 13 1/2 inches when erect, said he was only delayed about 5 minutes and the incident was mostly amusing.
"It was probably harder on them than it was on me," Falcon said of the TSA agents.
