I first heard the term “fingerbang” when I saw Welcome to the Dollhouse. At the time, I had no idea what it meant and just assumed it was something that was a lingo way over my head that I’d understand later in life. I did understand it by the time I was 15.

Personally, I think the word is hysterical. The amount of times I’ve used it in a sexual moment just to get a laugh, are endless. Sometimes I get my laugh, sometimes I hear crickets which then leads me to explaining that the term is fucking hysterical and should evoke massive amounts of laughter. Just saying it out loud has me rolling over in stitches, and wondering how I can use it more often. “Quit ‘fingerbanging’ the pizza and just eat it already!” “If you ‘fingerbang’ my apple one more time, there will be fisticuffs!” See?

But now a friend of mine (this actually is a friend and not me trying to disguise myself, as we all know I’d just say ‘me’) is dating a fella who uses this word seriously. The poor girl can’t go anywhere with him without him telling her how he wants to fingerbang her all over town. He’s not saying it to make a funny, but this is his idea of “dirty talk.” Not only does she find the word vulgar, but she also finds him ridiculous for saying it.

So let’s discuss this: what are our feelings on the word “fingerbang?” Vulgar? Funny? A word you definitely want to hear and/or use during sexy times or what? You let me know while I go “fingerbang” my sandwich.
