Insex was one of the famous BDSM pornographic websites on the Internet and arguably the most extreme American pornographic production starring maid submissives. Insex was as well a leading innovator in both live movie streaming, pioneering the concept before broadband Internet access existed, and in the characterization of BDSM practices on the Internet. It existed from 1997 to 2005 and was run by “Intersec Interactive Inc.”, a company owned by the website’s creator, Brent Scott, former Carnegie Mellon professor, known as “pd”. Insex developed a cult following among BDSM enthusiasts due to its uncommonly utmost and realistic depiction of sadomasochistic practices. Insex was also known for its interactive “Live Feeds” which allowed members to make direct suggestions and requests. In late 2005, Insex ended the production of native material, citing increased pressure from conservatives within the U.S. Justice Department as the main problem.
The Insex material consisted of diversified aspects of BDSM, e.g. rope and metal bondage, utmost caning, spanking and whipping, as well as needle play, intimate examination, sexual asphyxiation, gagging, humiliation, electric stimulation/torture, interrogation, human animal roleplay, enemas, and urolagnia. Crucifixion and water torture were also explored, and would later inspire pay sites dedicated solely to those forms of BDSM. Insex movies often showed permeating with vibrators and the use of vibrators, while erotic intercourse and oral sex sex were briefly shown on a small number of occasions. With the exception of a few deliberately scripted movies, the maiden models usually did not act, but simply tried to endure what they were exposed to. This gave each session a sense of realism that contributed to the website’s appeal.
