No longer the largest?[edit]

Recent news reports say a Mexican man has been recognised by the World Record Academy as having the world's largest penis, measuring 18.9 inches (48.2 cm). The academy says: "Prior to his claim to having the longest penis in the world it is believed the honour belonged to an American man called Johan (sic) Falcon whose manhood measures a strapping 13.38 inches."[1] But I don't know if it has been officially verified. It seems to just be claims at this point. Melonkelon (talk) 03:09, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Someone would have to be mighty stupid to believe that article and its fake "X-ray". -- 184.189.217.91 (talk) 10:14, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Until the Mexican dude shows the goods, the story is fake. Any time he "whips it out", "it" is wrapped in layers of an Ace bandage. He could be slinging a storebought baloney for all we'd know. On the other hand, John C. Holmes and Daniel Arthur Mead were each considerably longer than Falcon, and there are plenty of photographs and movies to document it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:547:200:8020:2903:c5d5:466b:669e (talk) 22:18, 18 June 2017‎ (UTC)

Undue coverage[edit]

I don't have any argument that this person is notable enough for an article, but the article seems a bit broad and indiscriminate in what it includes. It quotes and cites a whole lot of content from a few highly-credulous un-critical magazine articles, much of which should more properly have "Falcon claims..." at the beginning of it (and some of it already does). Just because he says things doesn't make them encyclopedic information. Furthermore, much of the content (such as about his childhood) is of little general interest or relevance to his notability. -Jason A. Quest (talk) 00:17, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Should an article about a male actor really talk about his penis size?[edit]

Does Wikipedia have articles about the size of female actors vaginas? Then talking about the size of a male actors penis seems wrong. This article about Jonah Falcon would be better if it did not have an entire section devoted to the size of his penis. 210.11.155.90 (talk) 09:13, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

If that is what make Falcon notable. See wp:NOTCENSORED Jim1138 (talk) 09:15, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

The John Curtis Holmes Wiki page also has an entire section devoted to the size of his massive endowment, along with numerous quotations from celebrities discussing it. Similarly there's a page devoted to Long Dong Silver, again carrying much material about the size of his manhood. So the Jonah Falcon page is hardly alone in celebrating a human tripod. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:547:200:8020:2D10:5C29:402B:CD17 (talk) 23:59, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Statutory rape[edit]

I added the statutory rape link to where it says "sexual experience" a while back. However, this was reverted with "remove WP:UNDUE biographical trivia, more objective phrasing" as the explanation. I would say "statutory rape" is a pretty accurate phrase to use in this case given that he was ten and the perpetrator was an adult. Prcc27 (talk) 04:56, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Seeing that it took place where "statutory rape" was not a statute at the time, the removal seems justified, @Prcc27:. --198.98.255.237 (talk) 01:40, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Most jurisdictions with statutory rape laws don't use the term "statutory rape", but that still doesn't change the fact that what took place was indeed statutory rape. Falcon was below the age of consent, so that is the appropriate article to link to. Prcc27 (talk) 05:22, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
