Notes on This Title

Insexts includes significant body horror, explicit sex, and insects.




“Artist Ariela Kristantina incorporates the more disturbing visual elements without diminishing the women’s orgasmic delight, and she has a clear appreciation for the sex scenes in this series, as those are the pages where her figure drawing is strongest. The care she puts into the visuals makes these love scenes passionate but also tender, capturing a genuine sense of affection that makes the sex an important building block in the emotional foundation of their relationship. While there are occasional moments when the character details get a bit muddy, Kristantina does generally impressive work throughout, blending elements of manga, art nouveau, and gothic horror in her linework and compositions to give the book a distinct aesthetic.” (Source: A.V.

“Insexts is more than just an eclectic mash-up of different genres. It’s also an enjoyable body horror story that hinges on the love between two women fighting back at a world that would destroy them. The book thrives on Marguerite Bennett’s elegant prose and Ariela Kristantina’s evocative artwork.” (Source: IGN)
