Today is International Fisting Day!

Queer porn revolutionaries Jiz Lee and Courtney Trouble have declared today International Fisting Day — and who are we to argue? Fisting doesn’t get nearly enough attention; in fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find any porn DVD that includes fisting because distributors are afraid of being sent to jail on obscenity charges.

The censorship of fisting is what sparked Jiz and Courtney to create Fisting Day. They are hoping to dispel myths and stigma surrounding fisting, and shine a light on just how pleasurable and sensual fisting can be. As Courtney Trouble writes in her Fisting Day post,

fisting is all about a hand and a hole listening to each other very closely. It’s one of the most beautiful, intimate sex acts I’ve ever experienced. It’s sex positive and builds a deeper connection between sex partners. It encourages deeper communication. And most people who have been fisted will probably tell you, it’s one of the best ways to orgasm in the whole wide world.

Jiz Lee’s Fisting Day post contains an in-depth explanation of why fisting is not shown in most porn, as well as a description of what Jiz adores about fisting.

As someone who loves to receive a fist, what I enjoy about it is an unparalleled feeling of fullness. The most sensitive areas of the vagina are just within the first few inches inside the vagina, which is where I like to use my kegel and pelvic muscles to grip snugly around a lovers’ wrist, which can be compared to the girth of a medium-large dildo . . . Combining clitoral and vaginal stimulation, the network of nerves and contracting of muscles orchestrate some of the most amazingly intense orgasms I’ve had.

Here are just a few of the posts that have gone up today:

Even more blog posts are being quoted on the Fisting Day Tumblr.

If you’d like to celebrate Fisting Day, we carry a great how-to guide on vaginal fisting called A Hand in the Bush. You may want to work your way up to a large toy first, like RandyGloves are also perfect for fisting, as they can make your hand feel slicker, and they don’t absorb lube the way skin can. Of course, you’ll need lots and lots of lube!

And this is really cool: Courtney Trouble and James Darling will be hosting an online fisting workshop tonight at 8 p.m. Pacific. They will discuss fisting preperation and setup, communication, safer sex, and beginning and andvanced techniques for penetration and movement.
