I never thought this was a good idea. Gay men have been doing it forever, but it’s only recently that women started doing it too, at least according to the porn I’ve been watching.
Fully 37% of gay men have engaged in fisting.
What is it? Well, the insertive partner takes his fist and shoves up the receptive partners ass. Shoved is not quite right as they go tend to go very slowly with lots of lube.
I almost never look at gay porn, either photos or videos, but of course I’ve run across a tiny bit of it. It’s not my thing, and I find it rather disgusting.
I’ve seen a few gay porn stills of this. I have to admit that it looks pretty weird to see a man with another guy’s fist shoved all the way up his ass.
Here are some of the problems that can result from fisting:
Eleven patients with injuries of the rectum and sigmoid colon secondary to the insertion of the clenched fist are presented. Six patients sustained mucosal lacerations of the rectum and four patients had rectosigmoid perforations requiring laparotomy. One patient sustained a severe sphincter laceration producing complete anal incontinence. The management of these conditions is discussed.
I don’t know much about the mucosal lacerations of the rectum. I’m not sure if that can happen with anal sex. Usually with anal sex you get these little tears called fissures that tend to heal on their own after a bit. Laceration sounds pretty hardcore.
The other four are much more serious. These are rectosigmoid perforations, in other words, a perforated rectum. That’s a very bad thing and it almost never happens from just anal sex. I’m not sure what a laparotomy is.
The last man had a severe sphincter laceration which produced complete anal incontinence. You can have surgeries after this happens to try to fix the problem, but they don’t necessarily work. There are indeed some older gay men who have anal incontinence after years to decades of all sorts of anal sex. These men do indeed have to wear something like a diaper to deal with this issue. It’s not a myth.
I doubt if it’s the typical outcome though. That sounds like a nightmare. Not being able to hold your shit.
I keep seeing the word laceration used here. I’ve never seen that word used in conjunction with an injury from anal sex. That must have something to with the fact of a huge fist being up there instead of a small penis.
I can’t believe 37% of gay men have had a fist shoved up their ass. That sounds nuts. Sometimes I wonder if there is something wrong with gay men, other than simply being gay of course. They seem so self-destructive.
