A man who is somewhat famous for having an unusually large penis briefly caused security concerns at the airport, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Jonah Falcon, 41, got questioned about the bulge in his pants at the San Francisco International Airport last week. He said that TSA agents stopped him because they thought he had something in his pocket. 

But unlike other people's traumatic TSA stories, Falcon didn't seem particularly bothered by the incident. In fact, he volunteered information about it on his Twitter account last week. "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," he Tweeted.

Falcon in fact seemed to relish in the publicity, later Tweeting: "Being in the news makes me so horny."

At least he's honest. 

Falcon said he had to go through a metal detector and a body scanner before getting pulled aside for yet more screening, CBS reported.  

Falcon said that TSA agents then gave him a quick and professional pat-down before finally letting him through. “It was probably harder on them than it was on me,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle. The Chronicle contacted a TSA spokesman about the incident, but the security agency would not comment.

A 2003 profile of Falcon in Rolling Stone Magazine reported that his penis is 13.5 inches long when erect.
