Harry Reems was not particularly gifted in the physical endowment area. (You must be thinking of John "Johnny Wadd" Holmes.)

Oh, you're right. From Wiki:

Holmes' main asset in the porn business was his exceptionally large penis. No definitive or verifiable measurement exists, leaving its exact size unknown.

Veteran porn actress Dorothea "Seka" Patton has stated that Holmes' penis was the biggest in the industry. Holmes' first wife recalled his claiming to be 10 inches (25 cm) when he first measured himself. Holmes himself once claimed his penis to be 23 inches (58 cm) long and 17 inches (43 cm) in circumference. Holmes' long-time friend and industry associate, Bill Amerson, said that "I saw John measure himself several times, it was 13 and a half inches" (34.3 cm). (In contrast, medical studies of human penis size have consistently found erections average between about 5 and 6 inches.) A review of Holmes' films over the course of his career shows that most of his early co-stars tended to be short and slender, whereas women with whom he engaged in on-screen sex later in his career were much taller and had proportionately larger bodies; as a result, the size of Holmes' penis appears to fluctuate in his films, relative to the height and mass of his co-stars.

Another controversy regards whether Holmes ever achieved a full erection, although much of his early work clearly reveals he was able to achieve a substantial erection. A popular joke in the 1970s porn industry held that Holmes was incapable of achieving a full erection because the blood flow from his head into his penis would cause him to pass out. Annette Haven stated that his penis was never particularly hard during intercourse, likening it to "doing it with a big, soft kind-of loofah.

In The Wonderland Murders chapter 13, "Wadd Forever", TruCrime TV's Julia Scheeres reports:

"John Holmes made one last request of his wife before he died, Laurie Holmes writes in Porn King. Fearing that someone would snip off his famous appendage, Holmes asked her to ensure that his body was intact before it was rolled into the furnace to be cremated. 'He didn't want it to end up on a shelf or in a jar as a conversation piece or collectible,' his widow wrote, adding that everything was where it was supposed to be. Today, however, John C. Holmes lives on as a collectible of a different sort: a 12.5-inch rubber dildo."
