Finger fucking and Fisting

Fingering involves putting your fingers in someone’s ass, vagina, or frontal hole, whereas fisting involves inserting your entire fist.

Both these practices carry a negligible risk of HIV transmission as long as there are no cuts or sores on the hands or anus. However, they can result in damage to anal or vaginal tissue if done incorrectly.

Certain precautions can be taken to make these practices safer. Good communication is critical to ensure that you respect the pace of the person on the receiving end of your fingers or hand. Trim your fingernails to avoid injuring your partner. Wearing a protective glove is also recommended. In a group situation, everyone should stick to the following rule: “When you change holes, change gloves.” Changing gloves is important to avoid passing an infection from one partner to another.

Use plenty of lubricant and reapply more as needed – especially for fisting. People who enjoy fisting often use Crisco because it lasts longer. Other types of oil-based lubricant can also be used. Latex gloves are not compatible with these two types of lube, so opt for polyurethane gloves instead. If that’s not an option, using latex gloves with a water-based lube will do the trick.

An additional rule is important to follow: “When you change holes, change the container of lube.” Using a shared container of lubricant for multiple partners carries a risk of cross-contamination. If you’re planning to have group sex, ask each person to bring their own lube, or prepare ahead of time to make sure you have as many containers of lube as there are people.
