The YouTube video has passed 1.5 million hits as of December 23, 2013.[5]

Falcon also appeared in the 2013 documentary UnHung Hero.[6]


Falcon gained media attention after appearing in the 1999 HBO documentary Private Dicks: Men Exposed, in which men were interviewed in the nude about their penises. He also gained additional coverage after Rolling Stone did a feature story on him in June 2003.[1] The article reports Falcon's penis as 9.5 inches (24 cm) in length when flaccid and 13.5 inches (34 cm) in length when erect.[1]

In January 2006, Falcon appeared in a documentary by UK Channel 4 called "The World's Biggest Penis." His large penis size also led to several appearances on the Howard Stern radio program.[2] Falcon appeared on The Daily Show on March 2, 2010, and stated that he can completely envelop a doorknob with his foreskin. In the segment, Samantha Bee attempted to convince Falcon to enter the pornography industry. He refused, saying it would be "just the easy way out... it's not going to help my legit acting career."[7] In April 2011, he appeared on the TLC documentary series {strange}SEX, in the episode "Size Matters & Gender Bender".[8]

On July 9, 2012, Falcon says he was stopped by Transportation Security Administration officers in the San Francisco International Airport, due to the large bulge in his pants. According to Falcon, after passing through a metal detector and a body scanner, he was selected for additional screening, after which he was released and allowed to catch his flight.[9][10][11]

In 2014, Falcon agreed to donate his penis to the Icelandic Phallological Museum (The Penis Museum) after his death.[12]
