In a vile display of depravity and stupidity, a man stands accused of relieving himself four times during a Southwest Airlines flight, exposing his female seatmate to his lack of self control, and later defending it as “kinky.”
Man Defends Self-Gratification on Southwest Airlines Flight as “Kinky” And Blames Female Seatmate
Warning, this is a NSFW post.
On April 2nd, Antonio Sherrodd McGarity allegedly exposed himself, then proceeded to relieve himself four times on a Southwest Airlines flight from Seattle (SEA) to Phoenix (PHX). His female seatmate sat petrified as he engaged in his act. According to an FBI report:
McGarity exposed his penis and masturbated while in view of the female passenger seated next to him. McGarity was seated in seat 11F and his female witness was seated in seat 11E. Shortly after takeoff, and while the aircraft was in the air, McGarity exposed his penis by pulling down his pants and shorts and began masturbating.
The female witness captured pictures of McGarity with his hand on his erect penis, which I reviewed during the course of my investigation. At some point during the flight, McGarity fell asleep and the female witness got up and advised the flight crew about the incident. She was moved to another seat on the aircraft.
After Southwest Airlines Flight 3814 landed in Phoenix, Arizona, the female witness sitting next to McGarity was interviewed by Phoenix Police Officers. She advised McGarity exposed his penis by pulling down his pants and shorts and proceeded to masturbate during the first hour of the flight, starting shortly after takeoff.
McGarity masturbated with his exposed penis in view of the female passenger on four separate occasions, using both his left and right hands. She suspected that McGarity ejaculated because he licked a white substance from his fingers.
Yes, too much information indeed.
McGarity was arrested upon landing, defending his action to law enforcement officials on the basis that his seatmate did not object, took photos, and because it was kinky (perhaps someone should have clued McGarity in on lewd acts in public places):
McGarity admitted to law enforcement that he had masturbated during his flight from Seattle, Washington, to Phoenix, Arizona, and that he had an orgasm. McGarity knew the female witness sitting next to him was aware he was masturbating and could see his exposed penis.
McGarity was aware that the female witness sitting next to him used her telephone camera to capture McGarity masturbating. McGarity advised he asked the female witness if she minded if he masturbates. According to McGarity, the female witness put her hands in the air and said “It really doesn’t matter.” McGarity said he thought it was kind of kinky. McGarity did not think the female witness was uncomfortable with him masturbating.
Asking for permission does not make an illegal act legal.
You really have to wonder what goes through someone’s head to engage in such behavior (and I mean the brain). Did McGarity really think that was cool to do in an airplane seat with a passenger next to him? Does he do it at the grocery store, gym, and Burger King as well?
These sorts of incidents bolster calls for a new no-fly list that will prohibit disruptive and unruly passengers from traveling on any U.S. airline.

The definition of “relieve oneself”, according to the Miriam-Webster Dictionary, is “to pass waste from the body: urinate”. That’s not what this guy did. One of the other bloggers was more accurate in his description of what actually happened. I’m not sure why you’d sugar coat it, especially after you posted the police report, which describes in accurate detail exactly what happened.
I’m glad you put all faith in the Miriam-Webster Dictionary. Maybe try the Urban Dictionary.
The title is confusing. I have heard of this incident. The title made me think there was a separate incident in which a passenger urinated four times while seated in the cabin.
Sorry folks, I guess I’m just not up on the verbiage of jacking off versus pissing on a plane…
REPLY of the YEAR!
Even after all the shit posting by us on here, Matt wins with this post and it’s only April.
Matt showing we are all just living in his world.
I had an while flying Southwest recently where I was told about my child “we will throw him off the plane” when he got up on his seat.
There was no action taken from Southwest when I complained to the supervisor and filed an online complaint.
Burger King? That was random, lol. I know it’s the “Home of The Whopper” but where did that come from? Better than In n’ Out I guess.
On that note, it’s pretty clear that people are actually and really losing their minds. It’s like Covid has created a lack of barriers for the mentally unstable. I am sure though many here will blame it on masking. *Waits for it.
I really really hope Matthew was referring to the Humpty Dance. That’s where the reference hopefully came from.
The first penis appearance would have been the last if I was sitting next to him. However, I am old and bold enough now to not tolerate any nonsense.
Is there really such a dearth of useful miles/travel info our there that bloggers need to add filler posts on what the latest deranged lunatic traveler’s depraved behavior was this week? Such a weird, and depressing, thing to stay on top of. But I guess it’s good to know there are lunatics out there? (As if we weren’t aware already?) So weird.
It’s clickbait. Sex sells.
I haven’t flown southwest in 10 years and will never fly them again. Nothing to do with this incident but just a horrible airline all around.
It is not the airline having worked for them. It is when the air fares finally decended to the level of bus fares. That is when it all started. (I know because I used to ride Greyhound/Continental extensively). The lower the fares SAVE, LUV etc..that is when I started seeing my fellow riders.. on the planes
I looked up “relieving yourself” on Urban Dictionary as you recommended:
Relieving one’s self is a polite way of saying “peeing”. For example “He proceeded to relieve him self against a tree” or “She had remove herself from the dinner table momentarily to relieve herself”.
It is commonly known that relieving oneself is the act of urinating. Your heading should have said “gratifies himself”. Get it right or don’t bother.
If the headline read “SOUTHWEST AIRLINES PASSENGER RELIEVES STRESS IN FRONT OF FEMALE SEATMATE”, I would have picked up on it instantly. Instead I expected to read about someone urinating. But whatever, click-bait achieved regardless (not condemning you, just picking up on your own explanation!).
Agree, only in Matthew’s world does “relieving himself” mean that a guy is rubbing one out. For the rest of us it means that he’s taking a leak. Until I actually read the post, I was kind of confused why he didn’t name the headline “GOLDEN SHOWER IN SOUTHWEST ECONOMY CLASS”.
Well maybe, uh, it needed some air.
We expect people maintain control of their deep nature driven urges and find it within rights of society to arrest him. Can you imagine? We are born naked. And a group of people can get together and decide i would get in big trouble if I don’t confine myself to a closed quarter to do things that nature forces me to.
Yet we can’t get ourselves to condemn people that can’t help but pop out kids that they can’t support themselves. There is no comment to be made about natural/primal urges. You should be able to control them. If you are a burden on society because you couldn’t control your primal urges you need to be dealt with as an animal. Society is one hive of hypocrisy.
What’s the story here, that he committed the act or that he achieved Shanghai-La four times in under 3 hours?
I strongly doubt there were 4 performances. Probably just one long extended performance.
LOL! I agree…where’s the investigative reporting on that performance!!
Did he keep his mask over his nose and mouth, except while taking a bite or sip?
At least this individual was honest. Unlike the Cleveland Clinic GI surgeon who inserted his penis inside a female patient and tried to convince her it was a scope.
Was he traveling on a Wanna Get Off fare?
Releived himself….self gratification…what a bunch of joyless pricks. Just roll with it and laugh like the rest of us.
I read this to learn if he peed in a bottle or just on the seat/floor. Disgusting to learn he wasn’t really relieving himself. Not matter what you read from urban dictionary please base your future wording on accepted cultural definitions.
“…using both his left and right hands” a switch-hitter. Impressive especially in such tight quarters.
An hour? Why would anyone sit there and be involved in that for an hour if they had no interest in the event illegal or otherwise? “Uhhhh, yeah I’m sitting back in row 11 and this guy pulled his junk out and has been jerking off for the past hour or so, I’d like to complain now”.
She enjoyed it.
THEN she complained.
They lie so easily.
Concur that “relieve yourself” is incorrect nomenclature for what went down here. I am not a member of the “me too” mob but you’re welcoming flack from them as they’ll twist an honest mistake into an intentional understating of what went down here.
