Millennials who grew up with Barney & Friends - created and filmed in DFW - may be interested to learn that the purple dinosaur is now a sex therapist. Actor David Joyner operates a massage parlor called Tantric Harmony. He charges clients -- only women -- $350 per session. He claims his unique techniques help women balance their chakras and release energy. Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez first met as child actors on Barney & Friends. Two actors gave life to Barney. David Joyner danced inside the purple costume while Bob West voiced the lines. Joyner played Barney from 1991 until 2001.
