Not for the faint of heart, or hand: Vaginal Fisting

Vaginal Fisting (“fist-fucking, or “handballing”) specifically refers to the delicate and sensuous art of vaginal penetration, encompassing the entirety of a human hand and wrist (while synthetic toys are available to achieve the same goal, it’s more scrumptious to use one with a pulse).

Why a fist?

Although penises, dildos, and vibrators provide particular and stimulating sensations, the unique contours and shape of the human hand is unparalleled. Throughout the course of the day our hands serve a multitude of purposes and transform into many types of tools—why not a genital?

It’s sexy, intimate, and romantic!

What do I need?

Tulip recommends the following for a successful fisting session:

To Set the Scene

Two or more consenting and communicating partners (everyone’s got to be into it, right?)
Creating an atmosphere: arousal is essential for a successful fisting session. Start with ample amounts of foreplay to set the mood.

Try:

  • Tulip organic massage candles (relax your muscles, in a sexy sort of way)
  • Lelo feather teasers (for the tantric touch)
  • Kama Sutra Lover’s Body Paint (decadent deliciousness)

Play Time

  • Well-groomed hands (important for fister—prevents any cuts, abrasions, or infections, avoid any nail polish, even clear)
  • Latex gloves (play it safe!)
  • Tulip is always stocked with heavy-duty latex gloves of varying sizes, perfect for the petite or the full-fisted alike.

LUBE, LUBE, LUBE, LUBE (even when you’re oozing and dripping wet, add some more)

Water-based, paraben and glycerin free lubes are best. Textures and consistencies will vary based on personal preference, but choose something thick and long lasting. A pump never hurt either, especially when you’ve only got one available hand.

Try:

  • Liquid Silk
  • Sliquid Organics Natural Gel
  • Slippery Stuff Gel

Optional: Some folks like pairing a hearty fist with a sweet and delicate vibe for extra stimulation.

Try:

  • Lelo Siri (Rechargeable, petite, and discreet)
  • Fun Factory Layaspot (Water-resistant and ergonomically designed to be hands-free)
  • Jimmy Jane Form 3 (Rechargeable, water-resistant, tongue-shaped, but better!!)
