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, Beatriz Preciado shows the ways in which the synthesis of hormones since the 1950s has fundamentally changed how gender and sexual identity is formulated, and how the pharmaceutical and pornography industries are in the business of creating desire. This riveting continuation of Foucault's The History of Sexuality also includes Preciado's diaristic account of her own use of testosterone every day for one year, and its mesmerizing impact on her body as well as her imagination.Beatriz Preciado has become one of the leading thinkers in the study of gender and sexuality. She is currently Professor of Political History of the Body, Gender Theory, and History of Performance at the University Paris VIII. She received her PhD in the Theory of Architecture at Princeton University, and a Master of Philosophy and Contemporary Theory of Gender in the New School for Social Research in New York.

Beatriz Preciado is Professor of the Political History of the Body, Gender Theory, and the History of Performance at Paris VIII; the director of the Independent Studies Program of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona; and the author of Testo Junkie: Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era and The Contrasexual Manifesto.

Novelist, translator, and essayist Bruce Benderson is the author of a memoir, The Romanian: Story of an Obsession, winner of France's prestigious Prix de Flore in French translation, and Pacific Agony (Semiotext(e), 2009.)
