For one year Beatriz Preciado gave doses of testosterone to herself every day. She writes 'I don't take testosterone to transform myself into a man but to betray what society has wanted to make of me...to feel a form of pleasure that is post-pornographic, to add a molecular prostheses to my low-tech transgendered identity.' This is a diary of transgression; Preciado's record of the use of herself as a lab rat. It recounts the defiant 'misuse' of a pharmaceutical product normally strictly controlled and investigates gender politics.

Review:

"Preciado's indomitable document on the 'pharmacopornographic regime' is buttressed by a practical experiment in which, over a three-month period, she douses herself daily in Testogel." --Sam Stolton's Top Reads of 2015 in 3:AM Magazine

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This visionary book on gender and sexuality weaves together high theory and intimate memoir, with spectacular results--and the gendered body will never be the same again (Jack Halberstam). What constitutes a real man or woman in the twenty-first century? Since birth control pills, erectile dysfunction remedies, and factory-made testosterone and estrogen were developed, biology is definitely no longer destiny. In this penetrating analysis of gender, Paul B. Preciado shows the ways in which the synthesis of hormones since the 1950s has fundamentally changed how gender and sexual identity are formulated, and how the pharmaceutical and pornography industries are in the business of creating desire. This riveting continuation of Michel Foucault's The History of Sexuality also includes Preciado's diaristic account of his own use of testosterone every day for one year, and its mesmerizing impact on his body as well as his imagination.
