I guess most 'folk' music concerns itself with real issues and thus as sex is a large part of everyday conversation, jokes etc. it's no surprise it is found in folk music. I do beleive that rock n roll, being the evolution of the blues, is modern folk music in the social as opposed to stylistic sense. In the same way that folk concerns/ed itself with sex, murder, drinking etc. so dies rock n roll, and hip-hop for that matter (and in all forms there are some nice love songs too..)
Radiohead are not a folk band. AC/DC are a folk band. Eminem is no different to Nick Cave. Who is a folk artist.
