Definition - What does Vaginal Fisting mean?

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

The vagina should be well lubricated before couples begin. Spend time enjoying foreplay, then add a generous amount of a commercial lubricant. The penetrating partner should insert one or two fingers into their partner’s vagina. Once this feels comfortable, the penetrating partner 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.

Once the penetrating partner has their whole hand inside the receiving partner, they can make slow, gradual movements rocking movements inside.

They should not make a fist. Instead, they should keep their hand in more of a duck beak shape, with their fingers close together. They can continue these rocking movements until their partner orgasms or feels satisfied. They should then remove their hand very slowly and gradually.

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.

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

Kinkly explains Vaginal Fisting

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. Some people say it’s a spiritual sexual experience.

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, do not be afraid to vary them. 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.

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.

Keeping the lines of communication open through fisting ensures the experience is pleasurable for both parties. Many people say this constant communication can help them feel closer and more connected to their partner.

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 silicon lube works best, unless you plan to use toys after. If you do, a thick water-based lube will give you the wetness you need without degrading your 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 microtears and abrasions, so err on the side of caution and wear gloves unless you’re confident your hands are smooth and free from sharp edges.

The penetrating partner should also take great care when they have their hand inside their partner. They should make slow movements and keep their fingers together, rather than making a fist. Intense thrusting and other sudden movements can cause injuries.
