The job market is so bad these days, even the man reputed to have the world's largest penis can't find work.
Jonah Falcon, a 39-year-old New Yorker, has what many men have wished for. But has it made him happy? Or rich?
1999 HBO documentary brought Falcon enduring notoriety, at least in some circles. His manly parts, in an aroused state, were measured at 13.5 inches (34,5 cm) -- the longest ever recorded on film. That's the length of an average wine bottle, certainly something a lot of guys would brag about.
But now, a decade later, Falcon is between jobs, living temporarily in his mother's Manhattan apartment and looking for work as an actor and writer.
One question Falcon always gets: Why not do a porn movie? If you've been blessed with a physical attribute, why not cash in on it?
It's not like he's shy or hasn't shown off in public – multiple times.
The answer is simple: "I don't do porn," he says. "If I did porn nobody would take me seriously. Nobody.
"Besides, having sex on a crowded movie set really isn't my idea of fun."
Of course, as a guy looking for work, he does add this tidbit: "I wouldn't be opposed to doing a nude scene if I got the right part. It would just have to be a legitimate movie, with a real part for me in it." (via Het Laatste Nieuws)
