Vaginal fisting is a sexual technique in which the penetrating partner inserts their whole hand, or fist, into their partner's vagina.

Despite the name, the giver should not make a fist. Instead, they should keep their hand in more of a duck beak shape, with their fingers close together. Many people enjoy rocking movements.

The sensations the receiving partner feels during vaginal fisting are different for everyone. However, people who enjoy vaginal fisting usually say they feel a pleasurable fullness.

Fisting, Step by Step

In order to perform vaginal fisting, the penetrating partner should insert one or two fingers into their partner’s vagina. Once this feels comfortable, they can gradually insert the rest of their fingers. They should pause after adding each new finger to give their partner time to relax and feel comfortable with the sensations in their body.

Vaginal fisting is also known as hand sex, handballing, vaginal punching, fist fucking and all-finger fingering.

More About Vaginal Fisting

As with all sexual activities, vaginal fisting should always be a consensual act. As it is possible to injure someone, couples should discuss vaginal fisting first before introducing it in the bedroom. Lots of lubrication and communication can help couples perform fisting safely and enjoyably. Many people say this constant communication can help them feel closer and more connected to their partner.

Does Fisting Hurt?

Fisting may cause intense feelings of stretching and the vagina may ache afterwards, the way any muscle does after a workout, but it should not hurt. Sharp pain is the body's way of saying it's been pushed too far. Generous amounts of lube are key.

Receiving partners often enjoy the feeling of fullness when their partner fists them. This sexual technique can also stimulate the G-spot and A-spot. Since vaginal fisting requires slow, gentle movements, it can be very tender and intimate as well.

Penetrating partners often enjoy vaginal fisting because it puts them in total control of their partner’s pleasure. They enjoy the feeling of dominance and knowing they are making their partner feel so good.

While gentle movements are best, people enjoy a variety of movements. Gentle twisting and slow, slight thrusting can both feel good. Stimulating the vagina with the knuckles can also feel amazing. The penetrating or receiving partner could also stimulate the clitoris while the penetrating hand is still inside for a real sensory overload.

Is Fisting Safe?

Vaginal fisting can bring couples intense pleasure, but people interested in it should proceed with caution. Vaginal fisting can damage the vagina if penetrating partners aren't careful. Using a generous amount of lubricant reduces the risk of injuries and making vaginal fisting more pleasurable. A silicone lube may be best as it remains slippery for a long time; keep in mind that it may not be compatible with silicone sex toys.

The penetrating partner should also clip their fingernails or wear latex gloves to avoid scratching their partner’s vagina. Even calluses and chipped nail polish can cause injury to the vagina; those who are practicing fisting must proceed slowly and cautiously.
