Fight Club and Fist Club Rules

In the cult classic movie from 1999, Fight Club, the protagonist/antagonist Tyler Durden (played by Brad Pitt), outlined the following eight rules:

  1. You do not talk about Fight Club.
  2. You DO NOT TALK about Fight Club.
  3. Someone yells stop, goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over.
  4. Only two guys to a fight.
  5. One fight at a time, fellas.
  6. No shirt, no shoes.
  7. Fights will go on as long as they have to.
  8. If this is your first night at Fight Club, you have to fight.

Here is the actual scene from the movie.

If one were to parody these rules and this scene from Fight Club, I would propose the following:

  1. You do not talk about Fist Club.
    • Don’t out others as fisters to both fisters and non-fisters alike, unless you have explicit permission to do so.
    • Don’t make assumptions that your fisting playmates are out of the fisting closet.
    • Don’t talk about fisting when non-fisters or closed-minded normies are present.
    • Don’t reveal details about your fisting excursions and events without permission of participants.
    • Don’t discuss a partner’s proclivities with others, including fisters, unless authorized.
  2. You DO NOT TALK about Fist Club.
    • Use innuendo among normies to gage their willingness to participate in fisting.
    • Limit any discussion of others to circumstances where an individual may be at risk, including exposure to drugs, reckless playmates, manipulative or criminal behavior. It is the responsibility of the participants to vet their partners. It’s best to provide info only upon request.
  3. Once the bottom says ‘STOP’ or taps out, the session is over.
    • Never push a Bottom into doing more than he’s willing to do. Encouragement and boundary pushing are one thing; however, he must listen to his body to prevent injury.
    • It’s a generally accepted protocol that the bottom is the assertive partner. In fact, the term “topping from the bottom” is frequently used to indicate the fisting relationship.
  4. Respect the scene: three guys may be too much.
    • When in group play events, keep your distance from fisting pairs unless invited to enter their session. A third can break the connection between partners with unnecessary banter, touch, or uninvited tangos outside the bottom’s hole.
    • Fisting group play is often very casual, and participants that aren’t fisting may often be discussing non relevant things such as cat photos, movie stars, or recipes for spice bread. Be aware of how your talk and behavior affects others around you that are wrist deep into a scene.
  5. One hole at a time, fellas–avoid cross contamination.
    • Preventing the spread of Hep C and HIV is critical with fisting. By its very nature, fisting results in exposure to blood. It may not be visible, but there will be microscopic particles of blood and potential blood born pathogens on the top’s hand, the lube bottle, and even the sling or bench where fisting occurs. Keeping an encounter limited to a single hole decreases risk of transmission between bottoms.
    • Avoid sharing lube bottles and always wash hands between partners.
    • Learn lube techniques that allow you to keep lube separate when engaging in chariot fisting.
    • If multiple holes are sharing a single hand, toy, or dick in rapid succession without washing up between penetration, acquire consent from each bottom prior to the activity that will result in cross contamination.
  6. Keep it safe.
    • Tops should have well filed nails and smooth hands/arms that are free from open wounds or healing sores.
    • Bottoms should make a reasonable effort to be free of fecal material, unless shit fisting is on the menu. Even if shit fisting, bottoms should eliminate seeds and nuts from their diet 48 hours prior to play to avoid injury.
    • Consent is ALWAYS required if any type of substance is used, including lube additives to mind and body altering drugs/chems.
  7. Fisting goes on as long as it has to.
    • The bottom controls the duration of the session; his hole – his life.
    • Breaks allow recalibration, don’t be afraid to request or take them.
    • If there is no connection within the first few minutes, end it politely. Do not force it. Do not be a douche about it either. Realize that sometimes, the spark just isn’t there.
  8. Consent is key, regardless o f your skill set or how long you’ve been fisting.
    • Never feel obligated to bottom. A bad douching experience, an unwilling hole, personal issues outside of fisting, etc. affect the brain and nervous system that controls the fistchute.
    • Never feel obligated to top. Personal issues or lack of connection can limit the pleasure for you and your partner. No bottom is entitled to your hand just because you are at the same event as he is.
    • Forcing total bottoms to top is a bad idea. A guy that is consumed by his self-identification as a total bottom lacks the skill and mindset to fist safely as a top. Just don’t invite him to the party.
