The New Yorker even had powder sprinkled on his pants to check for explosives, was taken through an X-ray body scanner, and led passed a metal detector.
According to the Huffington Post, John said: "I had my 'stuff' strapped to the left. I wasn't erect at the time.
"One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said, 'Yes.' I said, 'It's my d***.
"He gave me a pat down but made sure to go around [my penis] with his hands.
"They even put some powder on my pants, probably a test for explosives. I found it amusing."
Mr Falcon appendage has made him something of a celebrity in America, where he featured in a HBO documentary, and also appeared on a host of chat shows to talk about his prize piece, which measures nine inches limp and 13.5 inches erect.
According to The Sun, Mr Falcon added: "Another guard stopped me and asked if I had some sort of growth.
"I'm just going to wear bike shorts from now on. That way, they'll know. "You'd think they would have had experience with hung guys before, but I guess not."
