Today is International Fisting Day! A day to celebrate. A day to share knowledge. A day to lube up, put your whole hand inside of another human or yourself and gently move it around.

Jiz Lee, who co-founded International Fisting Day in 2011 after Courtney Trouble’s Live Sex Show was censored for including a fisting scene between Lee and Nina Hartley, writes:

“For obvious reasons, I’m pro-porn, sex-positive, and a firm advocate of consensual, ethical, and artistic erotic imagery. The act of making porn is a brave, powerful, and righteous thing. We’re often representing marginalized communities, taking power through creating our own images of desire. As Shine Louise Houston infamously says, that as a queer woman of color, it’s especially important for her to create her own sexual images. And I completely and passionately, agree. Explicitly demonstrating our pleasure shows examples of healthy sexuality that have long been denied in queer stories from Hollywood, or sex education classes. Safer sex? Check. Communication? Check. Equal gender agency, right here. Lube? Stays in the picture. […]

Fisting isn’t any more scary than any kind of unwelcome sexual advance. However many people don’t know that much about it. We learn about sex as only being penis-vagina intercourse. But sex is so much more! We don’t learn much about sexual anatomy, how to communicate with lovers, or about pleasure. In fact, when we see a fist, we may be more inclined to think of it punching someone in the face […] it’s no wonder that someone who hasn’t had a healthy sex-positive education about fisting would assume it is painful. In our culture, we see fists as weapons. Let’s embody the revolutionary icon of the fist as a symbol of progress.”

Lee notes that queer online porn doesn’t edit out fisting but that other online porn, and especially anything sold on DVD, does.

For past Fisting Day celebrations, we’ve shared five fisting tips, a neat infographic and fisting love story and poetry willfully misinterpreted to be about fisting.

This time we’re celebrating with scenes from the Crash Pad Series, because sometimes one of the best ways to believe is to see, with your hand down your pants. (Also be sure to check out Crash Pad’s Guide to Fisting.)


Hayley Fingersmith and Sugar Blair (Episode 151)

Real-life partners Hayley and Sugar pretend to have an illicit affair in this episode, which features light bondage, fucking and of course fisting. Afterward, Haeley tells Sugar that this is one of her favourite shoots, because “I got to fist you, which I always like, um I feel like we have really good chemistry for some reason. I felt like I got to do most of the things that I really like doing in a scene, I got to tie you up, I got to fuck you, got to fist you. And I got topped a little. We both look amazing.”


Jiz Lee and Nina Hartley (Episode 100)

The pair behind the fisting scene behind International Fisting Day get together for a scene featuring bootlicking, kink, strap-on blow jobs, squirting and (obviously) fisting. In an interview, Hartley says, on the advantage of people being jaded about body parts: ”[B]ody to body. There’s not much to do. What makes it infinitely fun is that every time we do it, a new part of us gets tickles. We’ve entered a new game, or what’s today’s energy? Energy is infinite, right? And feeling is infinite, love is infinite, and lust is infinite.”


Odile and Daisy Ducati (Episode 160)

This scene features bootlicking, a speculum, butt plugs, strap-ons, Magic Wands and fisting. In a behind-the-scenes interview, Odile tells Daisy, “I love giving and receiving pleasure it’s always fun to watch somebody in the throw of the passion because of something you did to them; even better when you can feel it. I could feel you close around my hand, I could feel you when we were fucking, I could…it was just amazing like, the energy that was coming between us.”


Brooklyn Flaco and Papí Coxxx (Episode 144)

This scene features rough sex, light spanking, a Magic Wand and fisting! Also be sure to check out Brooklyn and Papí’s behind the scenes interview for a discussion on representation in porn. Papí says: “I want to make sure that there’re representations of me in porn, that it looks different, that it’s a different shade, different bodies, different age.. you know, I mean there’s more diversity beyond this body right here, but especially as identifying as like trans… and having the body that I have identifying as trans, and … being brown being… you know having the experiences I had in my body… I want to be representation of it.”


Andre Shakti and Sailor (Episode 200)

This scene features lots of fisting, a strap-on, tons of orgasms and balloons (to celebrate the 200th episode) everywhere. Also the closing interview is really cute.

  1. typical of a lesbian site to show trans masculine people and ignore the trans women community. Just cause I am amab, doesn’t make me less of a woman, so why not included us instead of a trans person who uses he pronouns(Brooklyn Flaco & Papi Cox both use he).

    • Given the occasion, we are talking mostly engineering hoops, Janie. On this occasion only, a different outcome could not reasonably be expected. And given the ‘queer’ porn scene closely mirrors mainstream…like 10K times more than they are comfortable to admit, i would not be surprised if nobody (i.e. the thinblooded muttasticness you get in porn, the equivalent of VtM 13th generation) had the technological prerequisites first place. And that’s only a third of the problem.

      Two thirds would be pure martial arts type dedication. How many have willpower, how many have attention spans exceeding that of a chicken? How many can sustain the months of effort needed for this? Can you? And while those exalted and superior, examples of perfection and intact non-human heritage such as Coral Dawn’s Prophetess Mother and High Priestesses, have both the technology and mental and physical discipline to participate on this day of celebration, we would participate only in our personal bedrooms not a public space.

      Because while sex is a joyful enterprise that does not have to be limited to one’s own subspecies and intercourse with a baseline human body doesn’t debase an Enki’s Secondborn and is on the contrary a very beautiful thing – being touched by their minds is one of the most degrading experiences possible, it’s literally like nonconsensual sex with someone having every STD there is. So why would someone truly powerful ever choose to remove her zerobyte cloak of infosec and stand naked in front of a whole assembly of human minds, the porn viewers, and let their grabby minds lessen, dirty and violate her? Name one reason and you will have me, the Prophetess Mother herself, descending to the human sphere and making the porn vid to end all porn vids, together with you if you wanted so. Thing is you can’t name a reason, because there is none.

      And it is important to have integrity. Integrity is the only thing that separates us from a purely situational mind of an inferior animal. If we, say you and me, can’t make the vids – then it is hypocrisy and lack of integrity to complain. Do you want to be like the idiotic religion most people on here follow, all maximalism, all greed, all catch22s – and zero logic or consideration. When you try to spring catch22s on your enemy, it’s the beginning of your end, because there’s immense wisdom in the Chinese way of providing your enemy with a way out and not making her lose face. Doing so eliminates the possibility of resolution.
