He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Career as performance artist John Sex was a performance art dancer who performed at such legendary New York clubs as Club 57, the Pyramid Club, Danceteria, The Palladium, Paradise Garage and Andy Warhol's Underground. For the 1986 gay parade in New York City, he organized and helped build a float called the Go-Go Stars float which had go-go dancers from various night clubs go-go dancing on it. His last public performance was at the club Mars in New York in 1989.

He made music videos for his songs "Rock Your Body" and "Hustle with the Muscle" which were distributed as 12" singles. Mr. Sex's trademark was his long, blonde hair which stood straight up. He also dressed in flamboyant costumes.

He owned a python named Delilah that was often included in his cabaret act, and was a friend of artist Andy Warhol. Sometimes he would leave the python on stage and come down into the audience and wrestle with patrons of the club. Read more on Last.fm.
