Tips for Fisting

Fisting is one of the most loved and feared sex acts out there. Enthusiasts love the sensation of fullness and the feelings of trust and closeness with their partner that fisting can bring. Others think that penetrative sex with their partner’s whole hand sounds uncomfortable and unappealing. A lot of the stigma around fisting comes from common misunderstandings about what it actually involves; after all, if fisting really was about punching your partner’s insides repeatedly, very few people would do it.

We think that fisting can be a wonderful addition to anyone’s sex life, so we’ve written out a few basic guidelines for curious beginners. They’re addressed to the fister, but they’re useful for the fistee as well, and they can be applied to either vaginal or anal fisting.

Trim your nails. We cannot stress this enough. Trim them below the tips of your fingers and file them down. If you absolutely must keep your nails long, you can trim down cotton balls and pad the fingertips of your latex gloves with them. Make sure that you can’t feel the long nails through your gloves.

Glove up. Gloves can be great for all kinds of sex, but they’re especially good for fisting. A latex or nitrile glove protects the fistee from the scratchier parts of your hand (nails, callouses), cuts way, way down on the risk of infection (both STIs and pesky common problems like urinary tract infections) and won’t absorb lube the way your skin will. It’s best if your glove fits your hand pretty snugly. If you’d rather not use a glove, make sure that your hands are freshly washed.

Use good lube liberally. Different lubes work better for different kinds of fisting. For anal fisting with a male-bodied partner, many people prefer an oil-based lube, like Shaft. (Oil-based lubes will degrade latex gloves, so make sure to use nitrile.) Others prefer the perennially popular J Lube for their anal play, a powder that mixes with water to make a super slippery lubricant. Water, silicone, and hybrid lubes are all safe for either vaginal or anal play.

Warm your partner up. Assume that your partner needs more than a little bit of foreplay. Fisting is an activity best reserved for when the fistee is very aroused and relaxed. When you’re ready to fist, start with a couple of fingers and let your partner tell you when they’re ready for more.

Make a duck. Do not try to insert a fist into your partner. Instead, make your hand into the shape you’d use to make a shadow puppet of a duck: cup your thumb with your other four fingers. Of course, make adjustments according to what’s comfortable for you and your partner. The idea is to make your hand as compact and easy to insert as possible. After your entire hand is covered in lube, insert it carefully, rotating it gently so that it goes in more easily. Once your hand is actually inside your partner, you can curl your fingers over your thumb into a fist.

Take your time. Fisting requires communication, cooperation and patience. It may take several tries for the receiving partner to be able to accommodate an entire hand. Have fun with the process, and don’t be afraid to throw other kinds of stimulation into the mix. (Using a vibrator while getting fisted is a very popular option.)

Keep it simple. Once your hand is inside your partner, a little movement goes a long way. Your partner may even prefer you to keep your hand still. Check in, go slowly, and have fun!
