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.

Speaking Sex to Power charts Patrick Califia-Rice’s provocative views, which often conflict with not only mainstream society but also much of the lesbian, gay, and feminist movements. Along with essays on antiporn feminism, the Bush cabinet, and repression of S/M, Califia-Rice writes of his decision to undergo a sex change.
