A giant prosthetic penis flies about the screen in the much-acclaimed Red Rocket, threatening to knock out the man it’s wearing, 90s porn star Simon Rex.

In Red Rocket, Simon Rex stars as a washed-up porn star. The film has garnered many awards including for Simon Rex. Interviews about Red Rocket inevitably turn to a scene in which Rex’s character streaks through town with his humongous schlong flopping and flying about the screen. It is huge. Viewers flinch in their seats and shut their eyes tight, fearful of the damage that gigantic weapon might do to its wearer – or the town infrastructure.

You could knock down power poles with that thing.

In interviews, Simon Rex remains coy about whether the dick is his or a giant prosthetic penis. However, a quick revisit to his 90s porn movies suggests that lovely as his real asset is, we don’t see it in Red Rocket.

Rather, this is the work of a giant prosthetic penis maker at the top of their game. Forget Marky Mark in Boogie Nights or Daniel Radcliffe in Swiss Army Man. The dick in Red Rocket is the work of a master giant prosthetic penis maker. Indeed, there should be a new Oscar category.

‘And the Oscar for the best giant prosthetic penis goes to…”

Simon Rex, 90s porn star

Simon Rex rocketed to mainstream stardom in the mid-1990s. A casting director spotted him minding his girlfriend’s kid while she auditioned for an ad. Within weeks, he was modelling for Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. In 1995, MTV hired him as a VeeJay.

But then in February 1996, New York’s Daily News tantalised readers with news of his ‘porn past’.

“If Simon Rex looks a little familiar, it may not have anything to do with his gig as an MTV veejay or his ads for Levi’s and Tommy Hilfiger. It could be because Rex did a little film work once upon a time – three skin flicks to be precise!”

The Miami Herald followed up a week later.

“Before he modelled, the 21-year-old flaunted his Greek-god-like bod in gay-oriented X-rated videos.”

Finally, the internationally distributed Newsweek jumped on the story.

“MTV’s hot new veejay Simon Rex knows that the road to stardom is paved with exposed skin. But he may regret showing everything in the porn videos hitting stores next month. Young, Hard & Solo II and III, and Hot Sessions III – all aimed at gay audiences — were shot two years ago before Rex started modelling for Tommy Hilfiger. The 21-year-old, who says he’s hetero, landed the job hawking MTV videos in October.”

Every inch of him looks fantastic

Both Newsweek and the Daily News quoted Brad Posey, the photographer who shot the masturbation vids.

“Every inch of him looks fantastic. You know, if you’ve got it, flaunt it.”

It would seem reasonable to assume Posey leaked the story to drum up sales. It worked! The videos became top sellers and Simon Rex, a top 90s porn star based on two sessions shot over the course of one week.

Simon Rex said later he needed the money. He was 18 and living with his girlfriend and her 3-year-old daughter. His girlfriend performed in solo masturbation videos. When they needed money for food and rent, she told him it was his turn.

Rock out with your cock out

“Rock and roll – rock out with your cock out. I f_cking went there and did that shit and it was just enough to pay the rent. I thought ‘damn man, this is crazy’ because I never thought I’d be in show business later on.”

He said, “I was like ‘oh, what the f_ck, no one’s ever going to see it’. I was just living in the moment.”

Simon Rex says now that it ‘probably wasn’t the best move at the time’ because of the damage the porn revelations did to his career. But, as he also says, he wasn’t hurting anyone.

“I never hurt anyone… My back was against the wall… I could have resorted to dealing drugs, robbing someone. I did what I had to do at the time to survive.”
