Hailed "a revolutionary antidote to America's growing sexual conservatism," Patrick Califia is the most outspoken and intelligent commentator on sexual politics writing today. Following the acclaimed publication of Public Sex and Sex Changes, Califia once again exposes American mainstream culture with unrivaled brillance and integrity.

As controversial in writing about the private sphere as the public, Califia speaks intimately of changing his gender identy from female to male and becoming a parent in a two-fathered household. Speaking Sex to Power takes the reader on a remarkable intellectual journey with one of America's most audacious thinkers.
 

Synopsis

In his first non-fiction book since coming out as a female-to-male transsexual, this completely up to date collection of essays, which have never before been published in book form, charts Califia's provocative and controversial take on sex, gender and politics. Often conflicting with not only the conservative mainstream, but with much of the lesbian, gay and feminist movements as well, in these essays Califia discusses anti-porn feminists, the failure of America's drug policy, and state repression of S/M and pornography. He also writes intimately of his decision to transition in gender against the backdrop of his mother's death from breast cancer.
