Open Mind

One of the new experiences I had at IML this year involved fisting. For the record: No, I was not the one being fisted. Before this experience, fisting was far from an interest of mine. Come to think of it, I can still say that fisting someone is not a kinky activity that I will seek out any time soon. I feel I should point out that this won't stop me from trying it again.

I was fortunate enough to experience my first fisting session with a friend who truly has a passion for it. He taught me that there is so much more than just 'getting off' involved. At any given moment, there is a connection between the two parties involved; a bond of trust. This connection can be any combination of physical, emotional, and/or spiritual in nature. Learning this has made me reevaluate my thoughts on fisting, as well as take a closer look at bondage and submission. While fisting is not a current interest of mine, I have to admit, I enjoyed this experience. Yes, I learned a bit about fisting. More importantly, I discovered something new about myself while strengthening a friendship. It’s not difficult to find enjoyment out of kinks that may not suit you. You just have to keep an open mind.
