The Naked Advice

Model & Writer Liz LaPoint answers your questions about dating, sex, and relationships

Being aroused by tickle torture is a fascinating thing, and here to share his experience and thoughts on the matter is Franco, a tickle fetishist!

Liz: Are you most aroused by being tickled, or being the tickler? Would you say that most people with this fetish fall under one or the other, or are there a lot of people who can “switch”?

Franco: “I’d say my main arousal comes from being tickled. Being the victim, a submissive, is much more appealing to me. I’m also quite happy to switch and be the tickler once in awhile! Most of the women I run into who want to play are usually new or vanilla and generally don’t like the thought of being tortured themselves. When someone is adventurous enough, I like to give them a taste of their own medicine! Being very ticklish myself, I’m quite good at getting a response out of anyone I tickle.”

Liz: In my video about tickle fetishes, I speculate on the possible reasons one would be aroused by tickling and laughter. One reason was that tickling is a form of domination and submission that doesn’t involve actual pain, just the “torture” of being tickled. Does this apply to you?

Franco: “I think the fetish formed sometime in my childhood, as most do, and there was something fascinating about a woman being so much more powerful than me and forcing laughter and submission out of me through tickling. It’s also been much easier to experiment with than most fetishes, especially early on in high school and such. I mean, what friend wouldn’t want to tickle their friend to death, with PERMISSION, nonetheless?”

L: How often does bondage also play a role? And are there rules usually agreed upon before engaging in tickling sex?

F: “For me, it’s a must. The thrill really comes from being completely helpless. Many people who play with bondage and severe tickling will have a safe word, which is probably a good idea. I personally wouldn’t want one because I know my limits. My only request is that if it seems I can’t breathe, to maybe let up a little bit! Tickling can be pretty torturous psychologically for some, as well, so it’s important to make everyone comfortable with what is about to happen to them!” (Cont. after photo)

L: Are there any misconceptions about your fetish you’d like to clear up?

F: “Just like with any fetish, we are not freaks. We can’t help what we like. Developing an unusual interest is something very natural and people really shouldn’t hide from what they feel. A guy being tickled might seem emasculating or weak, but that’s what I enjoy about being on the receiving end. It’s nice to be taken down a peg. It’s also nice to play around in a way that is very different than what most people are doing in the bedroom!”

L: What advice would you give someone with this fetish who might be struggling with shame or with trying to find partners?

F: “There are so many websites where you can find fellow tickling fans. Some have forums and chats. You’ll likely run into a lot of fake accounts, but there’s the off chance you’re really connect with someone. The best way, I find, is to just be frank with someone you’re close to. Asking to tickle them, or asking them to tickle you, is a lot more friendly and fun than, say, asking to lick their feet. We have it pretty easy in the long run!”

    Love your work Liz. Glad you exist… even if you do pick on me for being Aussie. 🤣 you should live here and experience how so many Australians believe we are some sort of example of class and global leadership that the whole world looks to. It’s Friday here and half the nation will be drunk by the afternoon. Those who aren’t probably aren’t reliable for much anyway. As long as we play sport and don’t out other men for cheating on family.
    Aussie men at least used to stand up for things. Now they are frightened of their own shadows. I have a homeless drunk in early sobriety sleeping on my couch atm… he calls them manginas. After 18 years of sobriety thank God I have graduated from the vanilla sporting clubs and the capitalistic socialism outside.
    Enjoy your equinox

      Coyote, a most sincere congratulations on your years of sobriety. 18 months here, and it’s one of the hardest and best things I have ever done. At 18 years, some day I will say that many years as well and you’re a great example for those of us who want to keep walking that path.

        Just stick to your guns and stay honest with yourself. It is a program of self honesty. From pain and too much loss, I and my family at least developed a little more compassion.
        As for relationships… the most important one is with oneself first.
        Let all the merry makers and savage cowards obsess about what those, them, and they are doing.
        We actually have a socialist healthcare system here and I am some of my beautiful lady friends who actually know what work is and professional acumen too… well we are all waiting for some quacks to tjrow some coin to the establishment for me to het laid. Cos the cops in this country have had enough trying to railroad crimes thar aren’t going to happen (because some had good parenting and education) or in other cases… should never have happened.
        Left cheek (wing) or right… It’s all one asshole.
        Mitakuye Oyasin.
        Blessed be

    Great interview, really liked it! I’ll add that for me, I LOVE the reactions, always have. By that I mean watching the tummy/sides reflexively pull in, tremble (like when teased with feathers or fingernails), or toes wriggle and feet scrunch up uncontrollably if they’re very ticklish. Very fun and playful to watch and experience! I’m sure the reasons for the enjoyment of it vary a lot…
