This is a screenshot from the final scene of Boogie Nights, the 1997 film set in the 1970s – the “golden age of porn”. It features Mark Wahlberg as porn star Dirk Diggler, a role loosely based on the life of John Holmes, possibly the world’s most famous woodsman. Throughout the movie, viewers are told all about the huge cock but never actually get to see it. In this last scene, we’re finally given a glimpse of Diggler’s legendary 13 inch penis. Dirk whips it out before a scene, giving himself a pep talk in the mirror.
The cock made the news when it came out, partly because viewers actually got to see a dick in a movie (still rare) and partly because it was fake. The giant rubber dong was made by KNB Effects (who presented Howard Stern with a replica) and was so realistic many still believe Mark Wahlberg really is that well hung.
Turns out that Mark actually kept the prosthesis and was fond of using it for practical jokes.
The actor says he kept the 13in latex appendage he used when he played porn star Dirk Diggler and has only just decided to store it away after previously keeping it to hand to play pranks on his pals.
He explained: “I used to keep it in my desk drawer. And I’d take it out and slap my friends in the face with it. I don’t keep many things from my movies, but that just seemed to have personal significance.” – SMH, via the Times
Alas, Mark is now a devout Catholic and has renounced his penis-slapping ways.
I went looking for video of the final scene and had a hard time finding an uncensored version. I did, however, find this “improved” version which I think is rather hilarious:
“I see your Schwartz is as big as mine.”
