Jonah Adam Julio Cardeli Falcon (b. 29 July, 1970)[1] is an American actor and television presenter.[2] He came to national attention since 1999 for his large penis, reported as the largest on record at 13.5 inches (34 cm) erect.[3][4]

Early life[edit]

Jonah Adam Julio Cardeli Falcon was born on 29 July in the year 1970 at Greenpoint Hospital[1] to Cecilia Cardeli, an accountant's clerk, and Joe Falcon, a sailor who died two years after Falcon's birth.[5][6] Falcon has at times said that his biological father was John Holmes, a porn star, who was known for the size of his penis.[1][6][5] He states that he has documentation proving this lineage, but family members have dismissed this claim[6] and he failed from providing any evidence.[5] As an only child, Falcon shared a four-story house in Brooklyn, New York City, with relatives.[6][3]

Greenpoint Hospital, where Falcon was born, now the GREC

When Falcon was six, his mother decided to find work and sent her son to live with his grandmother in Puerto Rico, where he stayed for three years.[6][5] When he returned to New York, Falcon's mother sent him to live at the Infants Home of Brooklyn, a residence that provided foster care for children, where he lived for three years.[6][5] Falcon relates, "I don't think my mom could afford me. But it's no big deal. My past has so unaffected me."[6]

When Falcon was in fifth grade, his schoolmates saw his penis, which was eight inches long at that point, while he changed in a locker room stall.[6] After this, his schoolmates treated Falcon with deference.[6][5] When he was ten, an older neighbor told an eighteen-year-old woman about Falcon, and arranged for the two to have sex, which was Falcon's first sexual experience.[6][7] At age twelve, Falcon enrolled at an East Harlem school.[6] By the seventh grade, Falcon's penis had grown to 9.5 inches erect.[6] By 15, it was 10.5 inches long.[8] He later enrolled at the Bronx High School of Science.[6][5] Falcon graduated in 1988.[6][5] He was able to perform an autofellatio from the age of ten till he was eighteen years.[9] When interviewed by the Out magazine,[10] he has identified his sexual orientation as bisexual.[11][6]


After graduating from high school,[6] Falcon sought to become an actor and writer[11][12] and enrolled in a state college to study theater. Despite his aspirations, Falcon did little more over the course of the next seven years except socialize at nightclubs, where he would go out on a date and occasionally find a sex partner. He said to have had up to 1,500 dates by the time he was 25[6] and 3,000 dates until he was 29,[5] most of whom were females and some males.[6][5]

He often travels to Los Angeles and Europe, where he stays with friends and "admirers",[5][6] and has accepted money for sex, saying, "I took $500 from a lady on the Upper East Side to pose in my underwear for Polaroids. I've been offered $1,000 just to let someone suck it, and I'll say, 'Why not?' It's really about my ego. My ego is bigger than my sexuality." Just before turning twenty-seven, Falcon resolved to renew his pursuit of his acting aspirations, attending acting workshops and standing in line at auditions, to obtain roles.[6]

Falcon hosts an hour-long cable television call-in show[7] devoted to the baseball team called Talkin' Yankees Hosted by Jonah Falcon, on MNN, a Public-access television cable TV channel on Manhattan's Time Warner Cable.[13][10] His show is relentlessly prank-called by Sal Governale and Richard Christy of the Howard Stern Show.[13][5] Falcon released a single with Adam Barta called "It's Too Big", performing it with Barta on Stern's show on June 19, 2013.[14][15]

Falcon appeared in the 2013 mockumentary UnHung Hero.[16] He has appeared as an extra on TV shows such as Melrose Place, The Sopranos and Law & Order. He appeared in an uncredited role as a mental patient in the 2001 feature film A Beautiful Mind. He is a frequent guest on The Howard Stern Show.[17][10]


Falcon gained media attention after appearing in the 1999 HBO documentary,[11][18] (filmed by Meema Spadola[5][19] and Thom Powers[18]) Private Dicks: Men Exposed, in which 25 males were interviewed in the nude about their penises.[6][18][20] Rolling Stone aired a story about him,[19] in June 2003.[21] 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.[6][8][22] When becoming and being erect a large amount of blood flows to his penile and, according to Falcon, at this stage blood flow lacks to his head which consequently affects his brain and gives him a lightheadedness.[23]

In January 2006, Falcon appeared in a documentary by UK Channel 4 called The World's Biggest Penis.[8] His large penis size also led to several appearances on the Howard Stern radio program.[5] Falcon appeared on The Daily Show[23] on March 2, 2010, and stated that he can completely envelop a doorknob with his foreskin.[8] In the segment, Samantha Bee attempted to convince Falcon to enter the pornography industry.[24] He refused,[12][23] saying it would be "just the easy way out" and that he wish to pursue a more decent acting career.[24][23] Falcon has been for long unemployed,[19][12] but has later found a job as a Chief Editor in online gaming, with Stooge Gaming.[11][10] In April 2011, he appeared on the TLC documentary series {strange}SEX, in the episode "Size Matters & Gender Bender".[25]

On July 9, 2012,[26] Falcon says he was stopped by Transportation Security Administration officers in the San Francisco International Airport, due to the large bulge in his pants.[27] According to Falcon, after passing through a metal detector and a body scanner, he was selected for additional screening,[27] after which he was released and allowed to catch his flight.[26]

In 2014, Falcon agreed to donate his penis to the Icelandic Phallological Museum (The Penis Museum) after his death.[17]

Personal life[edit]

As of 2004, Falcon lives with his mother[19][23] and grandmother in the same home in Chelsea, Manhattan, that he has lived in since childhood.[6] The residence of his family has been described as a low-income home.[5] However, when he is financially independent, he lives by his own.[10]

In a 2003 interview, Falcon stated that his longest romantic relationship, with a woman, lasted a year.[6]
