I had a feeling that Jonah Falcon really wanted me to see his penis. Before we even set up our interview, the 44-year-old, who is recognized as the most well-endowed man in the world, asked me by email, "Did you need candid pics of me?" Perhaps he meant a photo of his face, but there was ... a certain undercurrent. How could there not be with a man famous for having 13.5-inch-long penis when erect? A penis as wide as his wrist?

Then, during our phone interview, he asked whether I had seen a photo of it yet. When I told him that I hadn't, he emailed me a link to several photos of his penis while we were still on the phone.

This was not surprising. Ever since his appearance in the 1999 documentary "Private Dicks: Men Exposed," Falcon and his schlong have courted fame. What did surprise me was that his exhibitionism coexisted with a seeming malaise toward penis fame. He was most animated when I asked him things not about his genitals, like his favorite music and actors. Most questions elicited only brief answers from him. I could hear a television or radio blaring in the background, which I imagined him to be much more interested in. He had just gotten home from his 9-to-5 doing data entry, a job that leaves him practically comatose at the end of the day. You see, having the world's biggest penis does not necessarily pay the bills. In his case, it doesn't come anywhere close to it, and he describes his situatio...
