I usually don't add this kind of webtoon as read and just pretend I've never had anything to do with it, but I honestly had to type a review since no one else did. 

This is faaaaar from the most disturbing thing I've read, but it definitely is somewhere on my top twenty things I regret seeing with my own two eyes. Mostly because it's just a pointless story. I'm not sure who's the target audience for this, because even if you ignore the entire plot and focus on the fact that this comic is actually made to be "borderline H" (according the tags), I really wonder who is into a guy with a """"lady hole""""" on his ribcage. Anyways, even if you're drawn to the plot because of the bizarre premise, I'd advice against reading it because it's pretty gross and quite frankly sad. It's actually straight up body horror too lol And honestly, it made me feel hella bad for the main character who has a kitty cat on his rib.

Now that I think about it, this story is really not well tagged. It could definitely use at least a content warning about sexual abuse.

Do not read this.

I can enjoy a story with depravity, but this was literally just 4 chapters of random abuse for no reason. All of a sudden the main guy gets a [female genetalia] on his rib and he can suddenly understand how a woman feels??? If he can, then how on god's green Earth does that translate to everyone being able to repeatedly slam shafts into his new rib hole??? And how does having an obsessive, anxious, and delusionally cruel female counterpart aid in the symbolism of understanding woman? There was no satisfaction or reward to watching his masculinity get ripped out of him and then replaced with a [female genetalia] to just get assaulted. No point to the body horror or the abuse or shame; as the reader you never understand why he's being punished, just that he supposedly deserves it because he's a man and that he's not great at sex. Really?

This entire story had no goal other than to depict the worst type of revenge(?) r*** and leave a man crazy and broken. If the main character were a woman this probably wouldn't have been published, but this was so unpleasant to read regardless of his sex. Events like this happening to anyone are just awful.

I'm left with a bad taste in my mouth after consuming this utter garbage. I would give this 0 stars if I could.

Since there are no reviews on this title, I felt obligated to post my own review. There will be some spoilers in my review, but the 4 chapters of this doesn't really have much to spoil, so be warned.


Ok-- so, what the fuck did I just read. I'm the type of reader that enjoys femdoms and their assertiveness in relationships with either only one person (Hardcore Vanilla) or many (S Flower (by the same creator), Lady & Maid). I'm not opposed to questionable situations, as long as consent is given for the fantasy/role play BUT this is a different level. I should have taken into account that the multiple warnings on Lezhin were warnings shouldn't be taken lightly. At first, I didn't mind the characters and felt like both sides were validated when Taeyoung decided to end the relationship. Honestly, I find it respectful that he ended the relationship vs cheating in the relationship. It felt like growth of his character in recognizing what wasn't working out. His character is the only redeeming person in this series that doesn't take advantage and sexually abuse other characters. Taeyoung’s ex-girlfriend, Lizzy, is the most disturbing and irredeemable characters causing other people to place blame on Taeyoung for their failing relationship rather than her paranoia and manipulative personality. There's a very strong possibility that the main character tried his hardest to get her to recognize that her behaviors weren't ok, but that it never worked. During this entire review, I'm entirely glossing over the fact that he grew female genitalia on his rib cage-- alas where the title came from as Adam's Rib. While that is 🤪 questionable in of itself, it's the least of my concerns with this series. I adore the artist and the work they've done in the past. They appease to an audience that is typically overlooked. It's a big reason why I've gravitated to the femdom genre. Series that heavily emphasize on sexual abuse are a big yikers for me (Killing Stalking).

TL;DR: If you enjoy sexual abuse that's devoid of romantic emotions the whole way through a series, then I guess this is for you guys. For me, I only really enjoyed the art and Taeyoung’s character as-is in the beginning of the 4 chapters. Everything else could be put in a dumpster fire and I wouldn't bat an eye.

This is the baddest thing I have ever read! Nothing was good about it! The only time this would be good would be if you are a girl and your boyfriend just broke up with you and you wanted revenge by cutting of his d***! Well if you feel like that then you shouldn't do that you just need to read this manga...

I thought it was a BL when I starting reading it and I wouldn't have starting reading it if I knew it was a "Borderline H"!

Idk I dont hate this story- but as a person who is fcked in the brain and enjoys gruesome shit and stuff that includes a bit of abuse this has to be the only story that has managed to make me disturbed. like tf dude this is so messed up and it was pure hell- The story line is disgusting and just outright impractical. But I like it in the sense that it made me feel something heh it was okay. but yea I dont recommend this
