According to a radiologist who examined CT scans of the man's penis, he's just a big phony.
In 2015, Roberto Esquivel Cabrera of Saltillo, Mexico, went viral after he posted a video of him measuring his penis, which he claims is the biggest in the world. He claimed in the video that his penis measured 18.9 inches and that he was hoping to get recognized by the Guinness book of world records.
He claimed that he had to keep his almost arm-length penis constantly under wraps to avoid chafing and that he had to register as “disabled” due to the size. He claims the size left him unable to have sex, and with regular infections.
However, as it (unsurprisingly) turns out, Cabrera was just telling tall tales.
According to Dr. Jesus Pablo Gil Muro, a radiologist who examined Roberto, the viral man’s penis is really only slightly above average length.
Muro said his suspicions were first raised when Cabrera came in for an exam.
“My first impression was that it was a unique and unusual case. I had never seen a patient like Roberto,” Muro said. However, when Cabrera refused to take the bandages off of his penis so Muro could perform an examination, Muro began questioning him.
Eventually, the doctor requested a CT scan, which revealed that most of Cabrera’s length was not actually his penis.
“What the CT scan showed was that there is a very large foreskin,” said Muro. “It goes just before the knee. But the penis itself is about 16 to 18cm from the pubis.”
“The rest of the tissue found there is just foreskin, blood vessels, and some inflammation of the skin,” he continued.
Roberto then revealed that the stretched foreskin was, in fact, his own doing. He told Muro that he had been stretching his own penis with weights since he was a teenager, after becoming “obsessed” with penis length.
Though Cabrera may have been shot down, the former record holder for world’s largest penis is feeling even better about himself.
Jonah Falcon, the almost-second-place-finisher claims that he’s been telling people that Cabrera was a fake for years.
“I think it’s ridiculous and he seems kind of desperate,” Falcon said. “No matter how big he is, it’s not going to change the fact that I’m 13.5inches.”
