Testo Junkie: Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era

by: Paul B. Preciado

Publisher: feminist press at CUNY (2008)


Staff Pick by comrade: Ariel A.

This book is a drug. A text biolinguistically formulated to produce the same kind of effects Preciado gets when he takes testosterone. Excitation, mania, desire, and gender reprogramming. Be warned: reading this will make you want to take, hormones, have wacky sex and dose yourself with queer theory, irresponsibly, without asking for permission. Preciado is a pusher, and his stuff is potent.
