BDSM is an umbrella term for a variety of (often erotic) practices or roleplaying; it is an acronym representing three components:
BD: Bondage & Discipline (playing with physical restraints, training, punishment, etc.)
DS: Dominance & Submission (playing with obedience, power exchange, service, humility, etc.)
SM: Sadism & Masochism (playing with pain, degradation, fear, etc.)
More often than not, other ‘deviant’ sexual practices are also considered to be part of BDSM. BDSM is a consensual activity respecting the fundamental rights of every human being involved; this separates it from sexual and domestic abuse.
Periodic Table of Kink (https://www.uberkinky.co.uk/)
Fisting (sometimes called handballing) is a sexual activity that involves inserting a hand into the vagina or rectum. Once insertion is complete, the fingers either naturally clench into a fist or remain straight. In more vigorous forms of fisting, such as “punching”, a fully clenched fist may be inserted and withdrawn slowly. Fisting may be performed with or without a partner. Below are a few resources for both novices and experts.
“First Hand: An Erotic Guide To Fisting” starts with a history from noted Leather historian Jack Fritscher Ph.D. (which reads like a chronology of San Francisco through ’60’s and ’90’s) and ends with a hot piece of fiction from former Drummer magazine contributor and disabled-rights advocate, Michael Agreve. In between covering health with a Doctor and Physical Therapist, club life with two club presidents, the online experience via the webmaster of the RedRightWeb site, a man who recounted his first encounter with footing, and, in the book’s sixth chapter, dozens of brief interviews where the participants related their thoughts about handballing.
Fisting is one of the extreme sports of gay sex. There’s no doubt that it can bring previously unknown satisfaction to those who practice it. From advice about how to wash thoroughly to tips about the right lube to use useful relaxation techniques and even a guide to the dark labyrinth inside the body. Sex expert Stephan Niederwieser covers everything you need to know about this ultimate path to sexual pleasure.
