A European Tradition?

A few weeks ago I wrote a post in honor of World AIDS Day. The post was not about fisting, although the term did figure into the safer sex lecture I described at the Whitman Walker Clinic. And because I have that word on my blog, I have discovered the following: there are a lot of people out there searching for fisting on the Internet.

I don't suppose this should surprise me, although it does. I think I'm so blasé about everything, but every time I turn around, something shocks me. I get made fun of for jumping, covering my mouth, and saying "Oh my goodness!" on a regular basis.

So here's what really surprised me in the last couple days. On Christmas, both Christmas eve and Christmas day, there were a ton of people who arrived at my site by Googling "fisting." On Christmas!

Now, the bulk of them were in Germany, Austria, and Eastern Europe. It's gotten me wondering. And what, so, you're sitting around, and you've opened all the presents, you've had your goose and sauerkraut with the family, and then people retire to their corners to read their new books, wash the dishes, try on new outfits...and search for fisting in the Internet???


  1. Oh, my goodness! When they're not googling tits, they're googling fisting. It's an interesting world we live in, isn't it?

    Like you, I think I'm pretty blase, then this. Who knew?

    Hope you're having a great holiday! Your nephew is adorable.

  2. wow. I didn't think of doing that. I wish I had.


Tell me about it.
