"Ages ago, exactly one week after having Nexplanon removed from the inner side of my left arm, under the skin, I felt my shoulders widened. Nexplanon is a birth control implant that releases progestin. It contains 68 mg of the active substance etonogestrel. Synthetic progestin mimics the actions of progesterone, a naturally occurring hormone."

toxinosexofuturecummings is a bodyfiction about pleasurable sex on a polluted planet. It’s a performance of a body creating itself through language. In the performance, sex is seen as an evolutionary and developmental process. It opens up a world in which materials and multispecies bodies infiltrate each other, giving and receiving pleasure. The world is thoroughly polluted, but possible, queer and trans.

toxinosexofuturecummings is a performance about an anticipatory and transformational state.

Content warning: The piece deals with environmental toxins, pollution, hormones and transition. The speech also includes sexual and pornographic content.
