Mandingo is the screen name of the African American adult film actor named Frederick Lamont, better known for having a penis that is approximately a foot in length. A linear unit of length equal to 12 inches or a third of a yard. If this claim is true, it would mean that Mandingo has possibly one the largest penises in the pornographic industry.
Mandingo, a Mississippi native, began his porn career in 1999 under West Coast Productions. By the year 2002, Mandingo launched his own adult film series under his own name. His career led to later appearances alongside famous porn stars including Gianna Michaels and Katsumi. He has starred in over 500 adult films, and his career shows no signs of ending anytime soon.
In a 2008 interview with Danny Fosold, Mandingo discusses what it’s like and what it means to be an adult film star. Initially, he earned his nickname Mandingo in his college years while earning his degree in Communications.
He admits that during these years he had a reputation for being risque, going to strip clubs and being comfortable with his sexual nature as a man, so the leap to adult film wasn’t very big for him.
However, his main decision for entering the adult film industry had to do with becoming a single father and needing a way to support his child financially. When asked about his actual penis size measurement, he explains that the numbers are rumors: “I’ve never measured myself” and I’m not going to because I don’t see the point.
I’ve been able to be where I am now without knowing what the true size of my penis is he says. Mandingo explains that being well-endowed has nothing to do with race, and that it definitely comes down to how you use your member.
Clearly, the rumors surrounding Mandingo’s actual size have worked in favor of his success, which just goes to show that size does matter, at least for making a good first impression in the world of adult entertainment.
