      La Fistinière’s fisting chapel, aka the Fistine Chapel.

      La Fistinière is an idyllic bed-and-breakfast located on the grounds of a former farm in the French countryside, 100 miles south of Paris. It is distinguished from all other B&Bs in the world by the fact that it is dedicated to fist fucking. Lodgers can eat a gourmet French breakfast in the morning and get their buttholes stretched to the max by noon in one of five private rooms. Or, for the more adventurous, there’s a communal “fisting chapel” in the attic that features all sorts of medieval-looking contraptions and a large mural of muscular men sticking limbs, chains, and traffic cones up one another’s anuses in a series of complex, painful-looking positions. The place is owned by Juan Carlos and François (they both go by their first names only), a friendly pair of nontraditional gentlemen who remodeled the building themselves and run all day-to-day operations except the meals (which are lovingly prepared by François’s sister, Nelly). They also have a cat named Fistouille, which roughly translates to “My Beloved Fist Fuck.” Clearly, these Frenchmen are not afraid to get their hands dirty.

      VICE: How did you two meet?
      François:
      At a bathhouse. We quickly fell in love, and Juan told me about fist fucking on our first night together.
      Juan Carlos: I tested him right away. He was talented, he got in on his first try. From first contact, you know whether a person’s hand was made for this or not. It’s like somebody’s handshake.

      Why did you decide to open a hotel devoted to fisting?
      François:
      We enjoyed throwing orgies at home and wanted to create a place dedicated to fist fucking, where everyone would feel at home. We wanted something welcoming and clean.
      Juan: We wanted a place for people to talk, where there would be no discrimination based on race, age, looks, or dick size­—somewhere people could come without feeling ashamed because they were fat or even straight.

      Are you over 18?

      The stuff you're trying to look at is considered "naughty" by busybodies, legal types, and (probably) your mom, so we'd like to make sure you're of legal age before we let you see it.
