Physical and emotional benefits of tickling

Tickling is a form of physical contact that can be more pleasurable than you imagine. Although they are traditionally associated with laughter and fun, they can also have a positive impact on the intimacy and emotional connection between two people.

When tickling is used as an erotic game, a series of physical and emotional reactions are activated in the body that can be beneficial for health. First of all, they stimulate the nervous system and increase the release of endorphins, the feel-good hormones, which causes a feeling of pleasure and relaxation in the body.

In addition, they can also help reduce stress and anxiety, since being a novel and pleasant stimulus, they distract the mind from everyday problems and promote a state of calm and well-being.

Physical contact during the practice of tickling can increase intimacy and complicity between couples, strengthening emotional ties and improving communication. At the same time, they can serve to relax and disinhibit your partner, creating an atmosphere of play and complicity that can lead to greater intimacy and passion in the relationship.

On the physical side, tickling can stimulate blood circulation and improve skin health, since being a soft and delicate stimulus, it can promote tissue oxygenation and the elimination of toxins. Additionally, they can be a fun way to explore the body's erogenous zones and discover new forms of pleasure and arousal.

Given the benefits of erotic tickling , let's see how to incorporate it as an erotic game in your relationship.


How to incorporate erotic tickling into your relationship?

As we have seen, tickling is a fun and exciting way to explore intimacy with your partner. We often overlook this type of stimulation, but it can be a powerful tool to fuel the spark in your relationship and improve emotional and physical connection.

Before you start incorporating erotic tickling into your relationship, it's important to communicate with your partner and set clear boundaries. Some people may feel uncomfortable or even reject this form of stimulation, so it is crucial to respect their wishes and preferences.

Once you have established open and honest communication with your partner, you can begin to explore tickling in various ways. You can use soft feathers, brushes, or even your own hands to caress your partner's sensitive areas, such as the neck, armpits, thighs, or feet.

It is important to remember that tickling can be a form of foreplay or a stimulation technique during sex. You can combine them with kisses, caresses and massages to create a sensual and pleasurable experience for both of you.

An important precaution to keep in mind when practicing tikling is hygiene. It is essential to keep your hands clean and your nails short to avoid any type of irritation or infection on your partner's skin. In addition, it is advisable to use some type of lubricant or oil to facilitate the sliding of your hands over the skin and increase the sensation of pleasure.

Ticking or erotic tickling as a form of fetishism

Many sexologists consider tickling a form of fetishism and refer to it with the term knismolagnia .

Knismolagnia is a word formed by the combination of "knismesis" and the suffix "-lagnia". Knismesis is a term used to describe the body's response to slight stimulation. For its part, the suffix "-lagnia" is used in the field of psychology and medicine to denote a sexual attraction or a fetish . Thus, the term knismolagnia indicates a sexual attraction or excitement when faced with a small stimulus, itching or tickling in the body.

Although it does not fit exactly into the definition of sexual fetishism, there are many practitioners of tickling who speak of it as tickling fetishism .

Knismolagnia can manifest itself in different ways and in different contexts. Some people enjoy being tickled during sex, while others prefer to experience this sensation in a more relaxed way and without the need for sexual intimacy.

Although knismolagnia is not as common a sexual practice as others, such as oral sex or penetration, it is important to recognize that each person has their own preferences and desires in the sexual sphere.

Related to knismolagnia we find the term acarophilia. This word refers to the pleasure of doing or receiving tickling but (and this is where we would establish the difference with tickling) without implying any degree of sexual excitement.

There are couples who use erotic tickling within the scope of BDSM. There are submissives who experience sensations of submission and vulnerability with them and Masters and Dommes who use them as a form of punishment or mild torture. That this is so does not mean in any case that tickling is a practice exclusively typical of the universe of Domination/submission. Of course: like any sexual practice, it must be developed based on mutual consent and respecting at all times the limits established by each member of the couple.
