More to the point, the porn- part of pharmacopornographic regime is the topic of their book Pornotopia, so maybe that’s why the porn part is less developed in TJ than the drug part. And for what it’s worth, I found Pornotopia a good read. See 1 question about Testo yonqui…. Lists with This Book.

It takes the best of Foucault and Butler and rips them into the 2st century, analyzing postmodern critiques and performance theory in light of the pharmaceutical industry, the porn industry and our third-wave capitalist society.

tdsto Half riveting gender theory and half wildly sexy and personal journey through a Testosterone addiction, Testo Junkie is crucial to understanding who we are and how we are, today. A long time ago one of my teachers told me it wasn’t enough just to write a love song to Foucault, you had to actually build on him, and I was like come on that’s impossible, but Preciado totally does it here.
And that is only one of several ways this book blew my mind.

Wish I had ditched yonquj of those fries because, I feel like I have to know what she is doing NOW — this yonquj was already out for awhile before it was translated, and what will the next be? This could quite easily end up being my favourite thing I read all year.
Straddling between an angry recounting of a year of using testosterone as a grieving process, and a French-philosophy based critical theory book, Precidao has certainly carved peciado a niche.
This book touches on such a varying range of topics that it feels a gargantuan task to summarise, but the image of a philosopher cutting off his head to approach his ideas with the body first seems like an apt one his words, not mine. Starting at the microscopic descriptions of testogel use that leave me bearriz a little shaky on my feet afterwards, and moving smoothly into the definition of a pharmacopornographic society on the most macro scale possible is a task that sounds much harder here than it is in the text.
At times his prose can be a little sensationalist, and the barrage of new nouns you have to contend with is a little heady at first, but to criticise this book for the same qualities which at other points make it so incredibly fascinating would seem like a pointless exercise.
I will be recommending this book to anyone who so much as blinks at me for months. Such a great book.
I shall write more here about it when it has time to absorb. Let me begin by stating categorically: Preciado’s Testo Junkie is for progressives and radicals on the Left who are well read in Feminist, psychoanalytic and Jonqui theories. If you buy into conventional gender modes, heteronormativity and such, this book isn’t for you A certain introductory beatrriz and belief are required before entering into no pun intended Testo Junkie because it is indeed, as the author names it, a “sexual insurrection.
Preciado brings to light the relationship between the post-Fordist sex industrial complex tesot biopolitics. He deconstructs gender and sex well beyond Butler, Wittig, Irigaray, and Haraway all the while positing a personal political manifesto that may work. He looks at the emergence of the pornographic industry alongside war products and chemical products, the rhetorical invention of the hormone, and crafts a narrative about his own taking of testosterone.
And, in turn, the unexamined narratives are misogynistic in tone. The political beartiz of self-writing, rewriting gender bio codes, of auto-experimentation are not necessarily new ideas but when correlated with his diagnosis of capitalism as it is practiced today, becomes salient and we cannot dismiss it ynqui easily.
Preciado also never fully realizes the manifesto so the prescriptions offered in the text are lean and need more flesh. Racism is given a salute but Preciado wobbles on the subject.
Librería La Lengua Absuelta: Beatriz Preciado, Testo Yonqui
Perhaps for me, I do not expect every author to solve all the issues. Because of my own training in critical theory, I have an appreciation for the author’s attempt to write against dominant frameworks by inventing terms to symbolize aspects of our techno-life.
I don’t think Preciado is wordy in a masturbatory way — at least, not any more than the rest of us who review books. D Here’s an excerpt that reflects the energy, attitude, and punktastickness of Preciado’s thinking: The real stake of capitalism today is the pharmocopornographic control of subjectivity, whose products are serotonin, techno blood and blood products, testosterone, antacids, cortisone, techno-sperm, antibiotics, estradiol, techno-milk, alcohol and tobacco, morphine, insulin, cocaine, living human eggs, citrate of sildenafil Viagraand the entire material and virtual complex participating in the production of mental and psychosomatic states of excitation, relaxation, and discharge, as well as those of omnipotence and total control.
In these conditions, money itself becomes an abstract, signifying psychotropic substance. You should read this book. El experimento total desde adentro hacia afuera. A truly monumental, paradigm-shifting must read.
Her approach towards the theory that our bodies are in control of the state, focusing on the relationship between performativity, gendered subjectivity and the evolution of medical and virtual technologies in tandem with the aims of capitalism, is simply BRILLANT.
