Wikipedia has a fairly good section dissecting the truth of John Holmes penis size. Back in golden age of porn, the mystery actually added to the mystique of Holmes during his hey-day in the 1970's. Screw Magazine's Al Goldstein once had it measured by an actress and said the "last two inches were all marketing schtick" which would have put John's fully erect penis in the 10.5" range. The fact that Holmes' circumference was equally impressive is seldom mentioned by people obsessed with the length of his organ.

Late in life, hooked on drugs and no-doubt ravaged by the early symptoms of AIDS, John Holmes engaged in heavy doses of vacuum pumping and stretching in the desperate attempt to get his only means of income to become fully erect or at least serviceable for porn shoots. His last videos show a penis with very little elasticity between flaccid and hard. On coroner's notes scribbled on the back of a page it was noted that the late porno actor's penis measured 8.75" in length.

Corpses do not get erections, to get an erection the heart pumps blood into the penis. One of the symptoms of death is an absence of heart beat known as asystole. Ergo, no heart beat no erection, neither does rigor mortis cause the penis to become erect.

You are correct; the 8.75" measurement was his flaccid length taken by the Coroner during the autopsy.

Trivia fact: A rigor mortis photograph of the notorious bank robber John Dillinger under a sheet with an enormous tent pole-like protrusion lead to a myth that the outlaw had an 18" (length varies) penis. It was said to be kept hidden in a secret vault deep inside The Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. For years couples, even entire families would inquire at the information booth where the giant Dillinger penis was located.

In fact it was an arm sticking up under a sheet that caused all the furor.

Actually, I've read somewhere that you can have a stiff stiff.
The suggestion was that an erection results from the dilation of the arteries that supply the erectile tissue.
Sometimes after death those arteries supposedly remain dilated and hence the penis can retain some degree of erection.
An old wives' tale?
I have no idea.

Hell, anything is possible... it is probably a rare occurrence if it does happen, probably well under 3% of corpses have an erection. Seeing how John Holmes had such a dickens of a time getting his cock to expand fully in the eighties, I doubt that he would have an erection that lasted post mortem.

I have seen Holmes' flaccid penis anywhere from 4 inches to around 9 inches... this would mean that the coroner pulled his flaccid penis away from the body to get the measurement of 8.75 inches... putting him in the 10 to 11 inch range when fully expanded. I just think that with Viagra or Cialis he could have easily been a foot long.

As to a couple of people mentioning his abuse of vacuum pumps, let me put that myth down... he might have used a pump from time to time, but he bu no means ever abused his penis through vacuum pumping. That is simply NOT true.

His erection difficulties most likely had deep psychological roots and he could have harbored the type-2 diabetes gene which causes millions of men to experience some sort of impotence after the age of 25. John liked trannies and small young girls... his taste in sex was a bit off of the beaten path and that might have had something to do with his declining erections as well.

Alas, his immune system was in quite a battle for his life and getting the best erections probably wasn't his bodies priority and his tumescence most likely suffered as a result of a combination of all of these factors. I didn't mention cocaine because I don't have any first hand experience with the stuff, that could have contributed to his problems as well.

When I was a kid there was a Los Angeles coroner named Thomas Naguchi, The Coroner To the Stars. Although he retired before John Holmes passed away I can picture him taking a measurement of the Holmes penis. The question is, was the measurement of a dorment flaccid penis or a stretched flaccid penis?

Too bad it wasn't Dr. Perper (Dr. Pepper) down in Broward County, Florida from the Anna Nicole Smith fiasco. If John Holmes had died of AIDS at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel in Broward, everybody from Geraldo to Entertainment Tonight would be grilling Dr. Perper about the world famous John Holmes penis.

I read an interview once with Ron Jeremy and he said the same thing in it. He also said that Holmes liked to brag that he was 14 inches and when Holmes called him tiny, he would call Holmes a pap smear .

There was a "John Holmes Weight Device" for sale for many years -a strap and weight for your cock- and that was sold on the old "official" Johhny Wadd website (before it disappeared behind a firewall) and had a pic of John strapped.

Will post it here as soon as I can find it.

And only posting info that I was told from people who used to work with Holmes back in the day.
So, if I'm wrong, then I'm wrong and I accept that.
That sounds very interesting, I would really love to see that pic! I think I have seen that weight device online before, but never saw Holmes wearing it.
