(Given the topic, not to everyone’s taste.)

The third, and last, posting on fist as a verb and on fist imagery, now (thanks to Arne Adolfsen on Facebook) from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. He-Man together with the character Fisto, the wielder of a gigantic metal fist:

Briefly on He-Man, from Wikipedia:

He-Man is the principal character of a series of comic books and several animated television series, characterized by his superhuman strength. In most variations, he is the alter ego of Prince Adam. He-Man and his friends attempt to defend the realm of Eternia and the secrets of Castle Grayskull from the evil forces of Skeletor.

And on Fisto, from the Cartoon Brew site’s “He-Man’s Five Gayest Adventures” by C. Edwards on 04/01/13:

When it comes to the classic Filmation television series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, it’s not much of a stretch to find homoerotic subtext in its ham-fisted dialogue and hyper-masculine, brutish-ness. However, there are times in the sci-fi hero’s quest to fight the forces of evil with his “fabulous secret powers” that it seems to move beyond mere inadvertent sexual suggestion and right into “oh, that’s just gay” territory. Here are five of He-Man’s gayest moments.

… 5. “Fisto’s Forest” And lastly, I draw your attention to an episode called “Fisto’s Forest”. He-Man & Co. is called to help some forest people whose diminutive leader, the Elf Lord, has been imprisoned by a bushy bearded bully named Fisto.

Fisto, whose name can’t help but bring to mind vats of aqueous cream and neoprene gloves [in the sexual practice of fisting], is killing off their crops by using his over-sized metal fist to create a blockage in the river. The whole situation is only made more vivid by Fisto’s choice to douse his opponents with a sticky white goo as a means to subdue them.

The relationship between He-Man and Fisto is of course ripe for salacious exploitation — as in this raunchy t-shirt design showing He-Man strapped into a sex sling, soon to be penetrated by Fisto; he just needs to have his legs strapped up to the lower chains so that his sexcavity is fully open to his buddy.

As here, but of course without the jockstrap:

On sex slings, see my 9/7/15 posting “Three morning names” (sex sling is the third).
