There's Always Room for Fisting

Make room for a sexual practice that's making the rounds.

Fisting is exactly what you think it sounds like and those who have dared to try it say they can't get enough. But how do you get your fix and are there any risks?

Fisting is a partnered activity that you will enjoy from now on.

We break it all down for you. Oftentimes, a couple of successful rounds will start to beg the question:

What more can I do?

It's no surprise that this kinky act is almost a gateway for more hardcore types of BDSM. But it's up to you to take further -- keep it where you're comfortable.

First Things First: What Is It?

Fisting is the insertion of a hand or "fist" into the vagina or rectum. With proper lubrication and gradual insertion, the vaginal and even anal openings are quite flexible and the pleasurable sensations this allows is what so many who get turned on by larger-than-life insertions come for.

The practice itself can be done while masturbating but it's usually a partnered activity. While it started off as a motif of gay culture, its is quite a popular and kinky way for partners to give each other erotic pleasure.

The feeling is intense and it gets even hotter with time.

Starting Off the Right Way

Without a doubt, the first thing you'll need is lubricant. Vaginas are definitely more self-lubricating and so make it "easier" to start with insert than anal fisting. But, to really get going and make headway faster, lubrication is a good idea. Make sure the fingers and hands your partner will be using is washed.

Start off slow, stimulating the area around the vagina. Take your time -- fisting is not a competitive sport and you're doing this for pleasure -- right? Start off by inserting one and then two fingers, fucking, and then drawing out. Once the vagina is more open and ready for more, bring your fingers tight together in a "beak-like" formation.

This is what will make entry in the initial stages easier and allow you to work up to the full hand or fist.

Practice Safe Fisting

Many couples decide to use a latex glove for anal fisting -- and this is not only to guard against a possible "ick" factor. With an entire hand, the delicate internal tissue is more susceptible to tearing inside so play it safe against transmittable diseases by layering up.

Make sure to wash up before and after. A great way to keep the mood is to work a shower into foreplay. Get yourself and your partner all lathered up (and worked up). You also want to make sure that his or her nails are filed down.

You can encourage them to start off with a little tongue action, if that's what gets you excited. The more sexually aroused you are, the more naturally lubricated and "open" you become.

Let your body take over and do its thing!
