Fisting
Hi there. My b/f and I have been experimenting with fisting. He told me last night that he doesn't want to do it anymore because he is scared that he will hurt me. You see, he thinks that his fingers are too long because the one reaches so high up that it goes past those bones inside (I dunno what they are called...hope you know what I'm talking about!). Is it harmful if it goes so far in? Or is there another way we should be doing this?

I am assuming thta you are a Heterosexual couple and therefore my answer is as such. If you are not heterosexual please let me know and I will answer the question for M2M fisting.

Chances are what your boyfriend is feeling is the pressure of his fingers against your cervix. The cervix forms the base, or a sort of neck, of the uterus. You can actually feel your cervix with your finger — if you slide your middle finger back along your vagina as far as possible, you will probably feel something like the tip of your nose with a small dimple in the middle.

The cervix has fewer nerves than much of the rest of the female reproductive system, which is why you feel a sensation of pressure against your cervix. If, however, what you feel is pain, it may be a sign of a couple of things, including possibly a medical problem, and you might want to visit a gynaecologist.

The fact that he's hitting your cervix at all may be an indicator of your body's level of arousal. Typically, when a woman is aroused, her uterus and cervix will ascend, lengthening her vaginal barrel.

There are many books and videos on the art of fisting. Look at Lesbian porn and also lesbian literature for more info.
