All week long, VH1's been running the Sex: The Revolution mini-series, a doc done in conjunction with the Sundance Channel about doin' it through the decades. Noted Dallas blues guitarslinger and occasional but always welcome Dallas Observer contributor Josh Alan Friedman was interviewed for the series -- and though he's yet to appear, Josh certainly qualifies as a sexpert, having formerly been an editor at Screw during its, ah, glory days. Josh is also the so very noted author of When Sex Was Dirty and the just-reissued seminal work Tales of Times Square, the original version of which served as source material for this documentary.

Josh says he will make his debut in tonight's episode, which is about sucking in the '70s. But no matter the length of his appearance -- and it's not the size that matters, right -- there are several lengthy interviews with Josh available, courtesy VH1, on his MySpace page. We've included one, about porn movie theaters in NYC, after the jump. Watch your feet; floor's kinda sticky. And, yes, the guy's kind of everywhere these days -- like, just last week, he joined Krys Boyd on KERA's Think, where the twosome discussed Bruce Jay's little boy's brand-new book, the very must-ready Tell the Truth Until They Bleed: Coming Clean in the Dirty World of Blues and Rock 'N' Roll. Hey now. --Robert Wilonsky


Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
