October 21st is Fisting Day 2011

by Jiz Lee on / Goals and Ideas, Queer Porn

This is an introduction, and an invitation.

The introduction is for my longer blog post which I will publish October 21st.
The invitation is for you to join me and my friend Courtney Trouble in bringing awareness to one of the most amazing sexual acts I know and love: fisting.

Anyone who does it knows it can be one of the most intimate, consensual, and beautiful connections between lovers. Everyone can enjoy fisting. And for those of us in the queer community, fisting is a sex act that is actually quite popular. It’s for this reason that I say: Fisting censorship discriminates against queer sex. You may be surprised to know that fisting happens quite often in my films, you just can’t see it because it’s been angled or edited out. While many queer porn websites celebrate and show hand sex proudly, the act has been cut out of DVDs and left on the editing floor for over a decade. For as long as I’ve known, vaginal fisting has been censored by distributors, and while it’s still okay to show it online, where many people are increasingly watching their porn, some Video on Demand websites have started to ban fisting footage in an effort avoid possible obscenity charges. It’s just not right, and it’s downright homophobic. I hope that very soon we look back at this moment and think: “WTF?!”

How can you help?

October 21st is unofficially officially International Fisting Day!

Join me in being vocal about fisting! I include my love of fisting on all my bios and do it on camera whenever I can. Let’s celebrate and normalize the act! On Friday, October 21st, post a blog about fisting — what it means to you, what you like about it, tweet about #fisting, Facebook about the act. Share my post, share others’ posts. Tumblr the fuck out of it. Read a fisting how-to book. Watch queer porn online. (Check out my scenes on CrashPadSeries.com and QueerPorn.tv!) And if you want to be one of the first wave of supporters to order a DVD that actually has fisting IN it, October 21st is also the release date of Courtney Trouble’s LIVE SEX SHOW. So get excited. Learn something. Teach someone. Talk about it. Watch it. Love it. Join our FIST FIGHT!

At the very least, think of fisting in a sex-positive way. Even if it’s not your thing, know that for some people, it’s a sexual act that brings pleasure. Now who’d want to censor that?

P.S. You may have noticed I haven’t used any images of fisting in this post… sad thing, isn’t it, if there’s no fisting to be seen?! Well, make sure to check back on October 21st!

I’m a pansexual male (More of a genderqueer, really), and I think fisting is one of the most amazing and bond-making acts you can engage in. Whether it’s with your lover, your partner, or someone you’ve just met, let’s all put our fists in the (h)air!

What a great idea!

Fisting is one of my favorite acts to watch because it may be the most gender-subversive. Even when it’s a cis-gendered heterosexual couple engaging in vaginal fisting, the very-old, very-patriarchal idea that the only desirable vagina is a virginal “tight” one is being thrown out the window. Banning depictions of fisting is homophobic and sexist, and ties into slut-shaming and the classic “let us tell you what you enjoy” mentality of anti-porn crusaders.

I’ll make sure to fist something in solidarity on the 21st, even if only a pumpkin. 🙂

Did you know some Mayan scholars say the real “end of the calendar” date is 10/21/11? I just made plans to frolic in the woods dressed as a fairies with my love to celebrate the end times on that day (the fairy costumes are her idea, but I’m down)… why not add some fisting in there too to make it truly delightful? I love this. I had been fisted before by a lover before, and truly enjoy it, but it was watching you on crashpad that made it really comfortable for me to consider fisting my new lover when she asked, though she had never experienced more than a few fingers (other than her four birth experiences, but the queer mama sexuality continuum is another topic for another blog…) the experience was awe inspiring.

Agreed with you 100 % on this topic. If I remember correctly the first video I saw that had fisting in it was a European tape in the 1990’s. I thought it was very erotic and exciting as I had never seen that act before. Though I could not understand a word they were saying it seemed to me that both women were enjoying themselves as they were smiling and moaning( I guess that didn’t need a translation, lol). Anyway I hope you have a good Fisting Day and that the same censors that say it is ok to put eight fingers into a body opening will relax about the practice of fisting. Especially as consenting adults should be allowed to participate and watch these types of sexual acts whether in the home or on DVD or adult sites.

Ted.

There’s girl-on-girl fisting on Sapphic Erotica, the most famous and widely promoted girl-girl paysite on the Net . I bet most corporate pornograpers who have told Courtney to cut the fisting from her films promote Sapphic Erotica in one way or another.

While I am NOT into fisting doesn’t mean I am offended by that when others do it. I do like a full feeling but I have already had 4 children and have a lot of scar tissue that will never have elastisty, and I sure don’t need a gaping hole
