Fisting

Updated: FEBRUARY 27, 2017

Fisting is the term used to describe full hand penetration, up to the wrist, into the vagina or anus. It is considered to be an advanced sexual technique. It can be done as a solo activity or with a partner as part of foreplay or sex. Fisting must be approached with caution; it can result in vaginal or anal tearing which can increase the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.

More About Fisting

One technique in fisting is called duck billing, in which the thumb and little finger touch each other across the palm and the the three middle fingers are stacked on top of the littler finger. It should look like a duck's beak. The fingers and hand are then inserted into the vagina or anus. It is best to start off slowly and then let the person being fisted dictate the speed in order to decrease the chances of injury.

Before considering fisting, you should first make sure that you are relaxed and that your vaginal opening is also relaxed and loose. It is something that you should take great care with as you can get seriously hurt doing it; some people are known to have died as a result of complications from injuries resulting from fisting. It is highly recommended a lot of water or oil-based lubricant is used and that couples develop a deep level of sexual trust before engaging in this practice. Latex gloves may also be used.
