Insex concepts were derived from historical sources, salacious magazines, pulp fiction, online studios, classic movies, art and even lingerie catalogs. Some of the more prevalent influences are collected here. Check back periodically to see more items and expanded descriptions. Also visit the Insex timeline.
HOUSE OF MILAN
House of Milan: Hogtie Hogtie Magazine1972

Barbara Behr's House of Milan produced numerous provocative magazines and films in the 1970's and 1980's. The out-of-print magazines sometimes can be found on small fan sites.

Much of early Insex work was an attempt to create a similar look and feel to the House of Milan photographer John Blakemore.

GEORGES PICHARD
Georges Pichard Marie-Gabrielle de Saint-Eutrope1977

Georges Pichard's comic strips from the latter half of the 20th century featured extreme sexual deviance and outlandish, sometimes impossible device bondage. His transgression against sexual conventions and his association with counterculture led to some bans against his published work.

His illustrations were a major source of inspiration for Insex scenes. In some cases, PD constructed devices based on specific Pichard drawings, such as this one.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

Steele, 1885

The brank is one of many devices borrowed from history by Insex to explore themes of punishment, shame and servitude.

Insex explored the brank and many more configurations of face restraint. Most were metal gags of one form or another, commissioned from our master metalsmith. We like them all so much that we made a metal gags page just so we could sit and look at them.
