Are you ticklish?

38 posts in this topic

And if you are, do you like it?

Just curious.

As for me, I was really ticklish as a kid, but I’ve gotten less and less ticklish as time has gone on. I've heard that's a common problem (And by the way, what’s up with that? What changes it? I miss being that ticklish).

...But I do have still have a “spot”...uh...in the “front upper torso area..ish".... :blush:

Where is your “ticklish spot”? Does the best method involve a strong, quick hand, or do feathers tickle your fancy when it comes to getting giggly? Come on, you can tell me! I won’t do anything with that information!

(Or will I? hee hee hee)

Yes I am, in multiple spots, although not really as much now I am older.

Do not like being tickled...well sometimes I do, it depends.

But do love tickling others...can be very erotic.

Plus it's closely tied in with my foot fetish the tickling community, interesting crowd.

Horribly.

And if anyone tries to tickle me, I hope they have good health insurance.

Yes i am. Mainly on my sides and the bottom of my feet. If the right person is doing the tickling it can be fun.

Use to be, maybe I should have let people tickle me more when I had the chance. I have no particularly ticklish spots anymore. I too am wondering what's changed.

Very ticklish in many places and I fucking hate it.

... Unless it the tickling is done by my SO.

Otherwise, anybody who tickles me should be prepared to die a very painful death.

Extremely ticklish. If I'm tickled I will become a madman who will pummel you. I had a couple friends "try" to hold me down and tickle me years ago and I made it known that that was a bad idea.

I know for a fact I used to be when I was little, and I hated it then. Recently, I cannot even remember the last time I was tickled so I cannot say whether or not I am still ticklish. I know I still hate it, though.

Same here. I'll use exaggerated amount of violence to protect myself if tickled.

Erotic? To me it definitely isn't.

Playful? If you consider being badly injured playful, then go ahead.

This thread is making it so hard not to tickle somebody!!! *glares around at the INTJs with their fists up and ready* :p

Use to be, maybe I should have let people tickle me more when I had the chance. I have no particularly ticklish spots anymore. I too am wondering what's changed.

Actually, I've been wondering if people become less ticklish as they become more exposed/desensitized to touch. So...given that INTJs aren't usually very "touchy-feely"...they might be more prone to still being ticklish as adults. ;D

yes i am ticklish, but only when i want to be. if i like u im ticklish. if u say something dumb im not ticklish anymore.

Interesting. Sometimes I can make myself ticklish if I really want it, but it's not as intense as it might've been otherwise.

But do love tickling others...can be very erotic.

I find it erotic, too. :devilish:

Plus it's closely tied in with my foot fetish the tickling community, interesting crowd.

hahaha And whoa, tickling feet must be really intense for you!

Nerd tidbits pulled from the Almighty Wiki:

Knismesis refers to the light, feather-like type of tickling.

Gargalesis refers to harder, laughter-inducing tickling, and involves the repeated application of high pressure to sensitive areas.

While it is possible to trigger a knismesis response in oneself, it is usually impossible to produce gargalesthesia, the gargalesis tickle response, in oneself.

And my favorite:

It is possible to tickle the area just under the snout of a great white shark, putting it into a near-hypnotic trance.

...So basically, even the most feared and fearless of creatures can be easily brought down by the right tickle. :smug:

This. So much this. Almost everywhere actually. Some places are more consistently ticklish, but the strangest places have been ticklish, if only on occasion.

I also tend to react with unnecessary violence. I'll get into poke fights, which may end up with me being tickled, but if you tickle me unexpectedly I'll probably elbow you in the ribs with full force or something.

Hi there green eyes!

Since you asked... my story is much like yours, ex-tremely ticklish as a kid, especially susceptible on my sides and to having my upper thighs just above the knee squeezed... know what I mean?

Also on the bottom of my feet when tickled with a very light touch. Around age 10 or so I met a friend who loved to have his feet tickled and it blew me away. I wanted to be like that too, so I asked people to tickle my feet, and soon I had desensitized myself. To this day, if tickled on my feet, I sometimes have a moment of *oooh* but I can suppress it, and it passes quickly!

This is probably true of me. I'm unaccustomed to being touched. Just having someone in close proximity to me can make my skin prickle.

I am very ticklish on my neck, sides, and the soles of my feet. Pedicures can be difficult, but at least most pedicurists have the sense to back off apologetically as soon as they realize they've hit a sensitive spot. The same cannot be said of people who are tickling you intentionally because they think it's cute.

It's not cute. I can be really vulnerable to ticklishness, and people who do it are basically trying to force me to be how I don't want to be, or how I'm not, at that moment. They are overriding my own control of my behavior. That's incredibly rude, even in situations which don't really call for politeness.

To me, it's violating. I will tell you to stop, I will tell you I don't want you to. The fact that I can't stop laughing hysterically when you're doing it only makes that violation worse, because it undercuts my authority to communicate that I want you to stop, that I meant it when I said Don't.

Bad enough if you intentionally tried it in the first place; if you continue, I'll seriously question whether I want to be around you at all. Occasional tickles happen incidentally and briefly, and that can be funny, but intentional tickle-attacks are not cool or cute or sexy.

I feel like a dork being all Serious Business about something that everyone seems to consider playful, easygoing fun.

I could see how it could feel violating for a woman. As a guy, I just get pissed (while laughing) and charge the offender and subdue them (or if they are stronger than me, at least make it not worth it for them to keep going). As a woman, it might neither be possible to do this, or socially acceptable. You're expected to stand there and "be cute". lol. Would definitely suck.

My mother kicked me in the face once when I was a kid and I tickled her foot. Talk about socially unacceptable. :p

She did warn me...

It's certainly more frustrating to be unable, for whatever reason, to physically throw someone off of you. But I'd guess it's the same sense of trespass which causes you to get pissed and react however you do. We can say encroachment, or infringement, or intrusion, if "violation" seems too feely-girly to you.
