Did you know, a fetish is an object believed to have supernatural powers, or object that has power over others. So fetishism is attributing some kind of inherent value or powers to an object.
However, it has quiet different meaning with tickling fetishism. Acarophilia or tickling fetishism is a deviation in which participants derive sexual stimulation from tickling or being tickled by, another person. Yes, it could be a tickle torture, but consensually.
A torture session begins with one partner let the other to tie her up in such position that leaves parts of the body particularly sensitive to tickling vulnerable, i.e. armpit, feet, navel, breasts, nipples, ribs, sides, stomach and genitals.
Different individuals may find tickling of virtually any region of the body to be pleasurable. This fetish can also involve excitement just from watching others being tickled. Most adults are known to enjoy tickling, either participating or watching. It can play a part in courting rituals, especially among younger people, and can therefore be considered part of foreplay for many partners in the term’s broadest sense.
However, people who claim to have a tickling fetish are likely to enjoy this activity to the exclusion of other pre-sex activities. For some, the focus is entirely on the tickling, with full intercourse less important or not included at all.
People whose sexuality is based almost solely on tickling can be said to have a tickling obsession. This fixation may also exist outside of sexual contexts.
