Anal Fisting

Definition - What does Anal Fisting mean?

Anal fisting is a sexual practice in which one partner inserts a hand into the other's anus. Despite the term's name, the hand is not actually in a fist position. Instead, the fingers are extended and overlapping. This is a more advanced technique used in anal play.

Anal fisting is sometimes referred to as handballing or fist fucking.

Kinkly explains Anal Fisting

Anal fisting requires experience, desire, communication, time and, most of all, lubrication. This is definitely not something to be tried by people who are beginners at anal sex. The risk of bleeding and rectal tears is high. The receiving partner will definitely need to have an enema prior to getting started and the giver should don latex gloves to make the experience more pleasurable for their partner. The process of getting the entire hand in should involve a very long, gradual, sensual process that starts with the tip of a finger, involves a couple different sizes of butt plugs and after quite a bit of time (most likely hours) an entire hand. Don't be disappointed if the sphincter muscles refuse to cooperate the first time around. If this is a practice you and your partner want to master, just try, try again!

Fisting was made popular by gay and bisexual men in the late sixties and seventies at clubs and sex parties. One particularly famous club was the Catacombs in San Francisco, which opened in 1975 and hosted anal fisting parties. The club eventually grew to be a place for sadomasochism and welcomed lesbians, bisexuals and heterosexuals. The club closed in 1984 after the rise in AIDS cases shone a spotlight on the risks of anal fisting.
