US man with huge penis stopped at airport
LOS ANGELES (AFP) – A man known for his enormous penis was stopped by security at San Francisco International airport and questioned about the bulge in his pants, he was reported as saying on Thursday.Mr Jonah Falcon, 41, has an organ which is 24cm long when flaccid and 33cm erect, according to Rolling Stone magazine. He has featured in a number of documentaries about the world’s biggest penises. He was returning to New York from San Francisco on July 9 when he was stopped, after Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents saw a bulge hanging down over his left upper thigh. ’They wanted to know if I had something in my pockets, and when I said no, they asked if I had some sort of growth,’ he said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. He told them it was his penis, and they checked around his crotch, although not too closely. He was delayed for five minutes. The incident was not his first. ‘I’ve gone through the (scanner) before, and I wasn’t worried.
Naked TSA protester at PDX found not guilty

PORTLAND — A man arrested after he stripped naked at the Portland International Airport was found not guilty of public indecency during his trial Wednesday. John Brennan, a frequent-flying businessman from Portland, set off an explosives wand in April and stripped naked to show Transportation Security Administration screeners he was not carrying a bomb. At Wednesday’s trial, TSA officer Steven Vangordon testified that “he started taking clothes off quickly, I mean he whipped them off pretty fast.” Brennan took the stand early in the afternoon, saying he believed he had the right to be naked. “I know the irony of taking off my clothes to protect my privacy,” Brennan said. “They’re getting close to seeing us naked, so I thought I’d up the ante,” he testified. Brennan said removing all his clothes was not premeditated. The frequent traveler said he had heard of many TSA issues while on prior business travels and was just fed up as he set off the detector at PDX. “The machine went off, and I asked what it was and he said ‘nitrates’ which I know from Oklahoma City is one of the explosive ingredients,” Brennan told KGW in an earlier interview, “and I was not interested in being hassled so I took off my clothes to show them I was not carrying any explosives.” TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz told KGW “TSA partners with the traveling public to screen all passengers safely and efficiently. When a passenger chooses to be purposefully disruptive, we notify law enforcement.” A Port of Portland Police report said Brennan was asked several times to put his clothes back on. Two screening lanes were closed for a short time until Brennan was wrapped in a towel and arrested. A judge found Brennan not guilty of public indecency on the grounds that he stripped naked as a form of protest, which is protected speech. But things aren’t over for Brennan yet. The TSA is also investigating him to see if he possibly interfered with the screening process. If found guilty, he could be forced to pay an $11,000 fine and be put on the no-fly list.
