There is nothing to discover in nature; there is no hidden secret. We live in a punk hypermodernity: it is no longer about discovering the hidden truth in nature; it is about the necessity to specify the cultural, political, and technological processes through which the body as artifact acquires natural status. The oncomouse, the laboratory mouse bio- technologically designed to carry a carcinogenic gene, eats Heidegger. Buffy kills the vampire of Simone de Beauvoir. The dildo, a synthetic extention of sex to produce pleasure and identity, eats Rocco Siffredi's cock. There is nothing to discover in sex or in sexual identity; there is no inside. The truth about sex is not a disclosure; it is a sexdesign. Pharmacopornographic biocapitalism does not produce things. It produces mobile ideas, living organs, symbols, desires, chemical reactions, and conditions of the soul. In bio- technology and in pornocommunication there is no object to be produced. The pharma- pornographic business is the invention of a subject and then its global reproduction.

Side 35 til 36 i Beatriz Preciados Testo Junkie: Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era. Johanna Fateman skriver om den her. I dunno, er min drømmeanmelder Birgitte Huitfeldt Midttun eller Mara Lee? Muligvis sidstnævnte.
