Josh Alan Friedman captures the buzz, jizz and rumble of New York City's sex industry with verve and a cast-iron stomach.

“Friedman has drawn a vivid picture of the Times Square area and its denizens. He writes about the porn palaces with live sex shows, and the men and women who perform in them, prostitutes and their pimps, the runaways who will likely be the next decade's prostitutes, the clergymen who fight the smut merchants and the cops who feel impotent in the face of the judiciary.” --Publishers Weekly
"A nasty and endlessly fascinating account... pungent and often hilarious... Friedman's cast includes a crowded lineup of strippers, porn brokers, pimps, hookers, cops, and Runyonesque old-timers performing in the longest-running show that Broadway ever saw. Oh, what a spectacle!" --Playboy
