Q: Pupil of the eye as the most expansive male organ

There is the riddle "What part of the male anatomy expands the most
between its smallest and its largest size?"  (meaning
percentage-wise:  largest size divided by smallest).  The answer I
heard was the pupil of the eye.  [Yes I know the female anatomy has
pupils also, but saying "male" is of course designed to point
responders in a different direction.]

Someone elsewhere tells me "it's in the screenplay of _Kinsey_ where
Liam Neeson plays it with a twinkle".  But I think I heard this long
before this movie.  Can anyone cite an earlier source?
