An adult film star who got his start in pornographic films in the 1960s. Holmes was born John C. Estes, August 8, 1944, in Pickaway County, Ohio. He died March 13, 1988, of complications related to AIDS. Holmes was widely publicized as having a penis ranging from 12.5 to 18 inches, though adult stars routinely inflate their measurements. A recent attempt at discerning his length by comparing images of his penis to images of his other body parts produced a figure of 8.75 inches. The 1997 film "Boogie Nights" is loosely based upon Holmes' life.

The most well-known male pornstar, due to his monstrously huge dick. Holmes himself claimed he was 13 inches long, his ex-wife and many other female pornstars say it was more like 10.5 inches long.
John Holmes lied about his already huge penis size, but also lied about being a college graduate and being the personal gigolo to a wealthy British woman.
