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

Early life[edit]

Jonah Adam Julio Cardeli Falcon was born at Greenpoint Hospital[1] in Brooklyn 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 porn star John Holmes, who was known for the large size of his penis.[1][6][5] Falcon has claimed to have documentation proving this lineage, but family members have dismissed this claim[6] and he has failed to produce any evidence.[5] An only child, Falcon shared a four-story house with relatives.[6][3]

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 girl 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 age fifteen, it was 10.5 inches long.[8] He later enrolled at the Bronx High School of Science, and was graduated in 1988.[6][5] He was able to perform autofellatio at the age of ten.[9] When interviewed by Out magazine,[10] he identified his sexual orientation as bisexual.[11]

Career[edit]

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 New York Yankees called Talkin' Yankees Hosted by Jonah Falcon, on MNN, a public-access cable television 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, a frequent guest on Stern's show, released a single with Adam Barta called "It's Too Big" and performed it with Barta on the show on June 19, 2013.[14][15][16][10]

When Falcon appeared on The Daily Show[17] on March 2, 2010, Samantha Bee attempted to convince Falcon to enter the pornography industry.[18] He refused,[12][17] saying it would be "just the easy way out" and that he wish to pursue a more decent acting career.[18][17] In April 2011, he appeared on the TLC documentary series {strange}SEX.[19]

Falcon appeared in the 2013 mockumentary UnHung Hero.[20] He has appeared as an extra on TV shows such as Melrose Place, The Sopranos and Law & Order. He also appeared in an uncredited role as a mental patient in the 2001 feature film A Beautiful Mind.

Falcon has been unemployed for long periods,[21][12] but worked as Chief Editor for Stooge Gaming.[11][10]

Anatomy[edit]

Falcon gained media attention after appearing in the 1999 HBO documentary,[11][22] (filmed by Meema Spadola[5][21] and Thom Powers)[22] Private Dicks: Men Exposed, in which 25 males were interviewed in the nude about their penises.[6][22][23] Rolling Stone published an article[21] in 2003 that reported Falcon's penis as measuring 9.5 inches (24 cm) in length when flaccid and 13.5 inches (34 cm) in length when erect.[6][8][24] When videographed improperly self-measuring during a Yanky Panky interview Falcon's penis was less than 8 inches (20 cm) in length.[25]

When becoming and being erect a large amount of blood flows to his penis and, according to Falcon, causes lightheadedness.[17] In January 2006, Falcon appeared in a documentary by UK Channel 4 called The World's Biggest Penis.[8] Falcon appeared on The Daily Show[17] on March 2, 2010, and stated that he can completely envelop a doorknob with his foreskin.[8]

On July 9, 2012,[26] Falcon said 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.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Falcon sometimes lives with his mother in New York City, in between jobs.[5][28]

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