Fingering

Updated: NOVEMBER 30, 2021

Fingering refers to the use of one's fingers for sexual stimulation of the anus, labia, vulva and vagina, and/or penetration into the vagina or anus. Fingering can be performed with one or more fingers and can constitute a complete sexual encounter, or be used as part of foreplay. Because the hands are sensitive and have lots of dexterity, fingering can be very pleasurable.

Fingering has many synonyms, including finger banging.

More About Fingering

Fingering is a sexual act initiated to stimulate the female genitalia or the anus. Because of the dexterity of the fingers, this technique can be used to help achieve a G-spot orgasm, which can be more difficult to accomplish via intercourse.

Anal fingering is enjoyable for some because of the large number of nerve endings located in the anal area. Fingering is often associated with the act of making out or heavy petting. It is a very safe form of sexual play because it does not involve mucous membranes. However, it is best to practice fingering with clean hands and short finger nails. Using barriers such as gloves reduces the potential for STI transmission even further.

Fingering is not to be confused with fisting, which is the insertion of all of the fingers of one hand (in the form of a fist) into the vagina or anus. It also differs from a hand job, which refers to manual manipulation of the penis.
