Fisting

Also known as handballing. Fisting involves the insertion of a hand and/or part of the arm into the anus. This is not for everyone and can be potentially dangerous if not done properly. The essential ingredients for fisting are large amounts of lube, latex gloves, and a willing, relaxed and horny partner. It is very important to note that forcing a full fist into the anus, not trimming your nails properly, and not using a clean latex glove can cause severe injury, including tears, ruptures, and bacterial and viral infections. If still curious despite these serious risks then there are a few more things you should know before attempting this. When fisting, ensure that your nails are trimmed and that you are using a clean latex glove. Apply generous amounts of lube to your hand. Ensure that your partner is completely relaxed. Slowly and gently begin inserting one finger into the anus. If things are still ok, then proceed to add more fingers one at a time, holding them as close together as possible. Once all fingers and the thumb have been inserted, add another generous helping of lube. Now, gently rotate your hand into the anus. Do so slowly and gently while checking your partner’s responses. Once inserted, ball your hand and slowly move backwards and forwards in the anus, massaging the prostate as you go. Once done, open your hand and close your fingers close together. Begin removing your hand slowly.

If there is any discomfort experienced at any point, or if there is excessive bleeding, encourage your partner to relax and remove your hand slowly. Inserting your hand too quickly can result in dangerous tears in the rectal wall. If concerned at any point do not hesitate to go to the emergency room. After being fisted, your partner may be unable to control his bowel movements. The expanded rectal walls (look: Anatomy of the Anus) should eventually return to normal size.

As already mentioned, Fisting can be potentially dangerous. In addition to possible injury, fisting without a latex glove can increase one’s risk of contracting HIV or an STI (look: HIV/Aids and STI’s), especially if there are open wounds on the hand, arm or rectum, which could facilitate transmission.
