As always, guys who talk about their prowess in such regards generally have none whatsoever.
People who suck in bed always say that, but the contrary evidence is staggering.
Hemingway: "Where there had been roughness of fabric all was smooth with a smoothness and firm rounded pressing and a long warm coolness, cool outside and warm within, long and light and closely holding, closely held, lonely, hollow-making with contours, happy-making, young and loving and now all warmly smooth with a hollowing, chest-aching, tight-held loneliness..."

Dylan: "Saddle me up my big white goose. Tie me on ’er and turn her loose. Oh me, oh my. Love that country pie."

And of course, Tommy Lee: "I’m such a good good boy. I just need a new toy. I tell ya what, girl, dance for me - I'll keep you overemployed."
So, I'm only about 80% sure this is the Father John Misty thread, but if you've made the same mistake I have then you might like his World Cafe set. I love the album, but from all the recordings I can find, he's just amazing live.
I read somewhere that Robin is a sober individual whereas, clearly, J. Tillman is not. Those Fleet Foxes tours must have been... interesting.
The Fleet Foxes live were fan-quacking-tastic. I saw them in their first month of touring, and although you could already tell that the guy behind the drums (J Tillman/Father John) had an awesome presence, the group gelled incredibly well. They didn't sex it up at all - maybe that's what the piece you read meant - but their cohesive dream-folk was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Robin (whose unmiked solo encore was terrific) and J Tillman certainly have different personalities, but such disparities are what take these types of groups to a new level, a la Richard Manuel, Joe Walsh, and Dennis Wilson.
Actually I meant that Robin doesn't drink alcohol or use drukqs whereas J Tillman clearly enjoys a cold one here and there. When I first saw Josh in interviews and heard the Father John Misty album I couldn't help but think their different opinions on the matter could've lead to some awkward times back stage.
I don't doubt whatsoever that Fleet Foxes were incredible live though. Everyone involved is super talented and they probably wouldn't have made it this far if it had been a huge issue.
