The "Silent Duck" is used in the first stage of fisting
Using gloves and lubrication reduce the risk of injury.

Fisting is a sexual activity. The fister puts his or her hand into the vagina or rectum. The fingers are then clenched into a fist or kept straight. Fisting may be done with or without a partner.

Fistees is another form of fisting. It is for the more experienced. It may take two fists. This is called double fisting. Double fisting pleasure depends more on stretching of the anus or vagina rather than thrusting with an in-and-out movement of the hands.[1]

Fisting can cause lacerations to the vagina, perineum, rectum, and/or colon. This may result in serious injury.[2] These lacerations may even lead to death.[3][4][5][6] Sexual activities that cause air to enter the vagina can lead to a fatal air clot. The risk is probably even higher during pregnancy.[7]

Man to man fisting is sometimes used to humiliate the fisted. It is sometimes used to initiate the fisted one into a men's club or other all-male organization. Men fist each other for pain and pleasure. They fist for the pleasure of having their anuses stretched. They fist for the pleasure and pain of having their rectums and colon filled with something large.

Men also first other men for the challenge of taking not only the hand, but the wrist, forearm, upper arm as far as the armpit into their tracts. Some bars, clubs, and taverns teach fisting. These venues are usually associated with "the leather scene" or the all-male motorcycle crowd. In the bar or club, a sling is hung from the ceiling. Someone climbs into the sling either nude or in leather drag. A lot of lubricant must be used. Lubricant is usually available. Men prefer a simple 1 pound can of Crisco shortening. The instruction starts. Instructional videos and images can be viewed on the Internet. Before plunging into fisting, interested parties should seek instruction. Fisting can be dangerous.

Risks[change | edit source]

Fisting can cause cutting or tearing or of the vagina, perineum, rectum, and/or colon, resulting in serious injury[8] and even death.[9][10][11][12] In general, sexual activities that cause air to enter the vagina can lead to a fatal air clot, and the risk is probably even higher during pregnancy.[13]

Anal fisting carries risks of colorectal tearing; people doing it should use latex gloves and lubricant, and have a safeword, which they can say when they want it to stop immediately. The practice, along with the insertion of hard objects into the anus, or the vagina has been significantly related to the traumatization of the vaginal or rectal mucosa in increasing the likelihood of infection, including Hepatitis B virus.[14]
