Top 10 Tickling Tools and Methods

Let's just say I've got a confession/fetish to tell my fellow friends and TopTenners about, and I guess the best way to say it is...You know what? Screw it, I have a love for tickling! There, I said it!

My story is way too long for this, but trust me, it's crazy! My main reason for making this list was to share one of my biggest secrets because I can! And before you say really loving tickling is weird, there are much stranger interests out there than tickling! Tickling is one of my hidden passions and desires!

Though I'm tickle deprived, why not share some of the knowledge I have in this topic for a good time? Go ahead and remix this list and make your own version if you disagree with the order!
The Top Ten
1 Fingers/Fingernails

I was having a sleepover with 2 of my friends. Let's call one of them K and one of them L. I do like being tickled, so I was egging K on. I was saying stuff like "you can't make me laugh," but K gave no reaction, so I thought I won. I went back to watching the movie that was playing (the newer version of The Predator). Out of nowhere, K launches himself at me and scribbles his fingers all over my torso. I, who was not expecting this at all, audibly squeaked, and I started letting out demonic giggling. He stood and smugly says, "Ha ha, I won." I definitely got him back for that.

2 Feathers

My friend didn't seem to have ticklish feet, but feathers eventually broke him. First, I tickled his socked feet. No reaction. Then I took his socks off and tickled, and all I got out of him was a smile. I then challenged him to last 5 minutes while tied up. I tied his knees, ankles, and big toes together. Then, I used a feather. He chuckled lightly on the heels and arches, giggled on the soles (he has soft feet for a boy). But then came his toes. When I tickled under them, he laughed and curled his toes. When I tickled between his toes with the feather, he laughed hard and curled, wiggled, flexed, and spread his toes as he laughed hysterically. Sometimes now, when he is barefoot, I tickle his toes.

3 Electric Toothbrush

Once, I had a few friends over for a birthday sleepover. We were playing games, each taking turns one at a time. I used to brush my teeth with an electric toothbrush, but now I do not. One of my friends went into my bathroom and found my electric toothbrush. After I finished the game, I reluctantly went to lay on my bed with my friend waiting there. Then, before I realized what was going on, they pinned my arms above my head, and my other friend jumped out from under the bed. They pulled up my shirt and stuck my electric toothbrush in my belly button and held me there for at least a half hour. Ever since then, I've used a normal toothbrush. Whenever I hear that buzzing sound, I always get nervous.

4 Tied up & Blindfolded

I have a cousin a year older than me. We don't really annoy each other on purpose, but one day I told his crush that he liked her. When my cousin found out, he got two of his friends (which I was also friends with), and they tied me up and blindfolded me. My cousin tickled my armpits (my most ticklish place), his friend tickled my feet, and his other friend (which I had a crush on) blew raspberries on my belly button. It was kind of embarrassing when I peed my pants, but they all felt bad for me and apologized. Now, my cousin's friend that I had a crush on and I are married, and he tickles me all the time, but I enjoy it. I like being tickled.

5 Baby Oil

Something so unique and simple, but is a very popular tool not just for making skin smooth. This stuff actually enhances sensitivity, so if you were already super ticklish, then oh wow, you're gonna have fun! This stuff, when applied a lot, not only makes the skin super smooth and shiny but also slippery for your fingers to roam!

My girlfriend started rubbing baby oil on my feet after she tied me up to the bed. It tickled so much!

I tickled my 11-year-old son using baby oil. I rubbed it on his feet and tickled under the toes.

6 Hairbrush

Hairbrushes used to be the only way someone could tickle me. I would tell my friends that I wasn't ticklish anywhere, but one day, we were playing truth or dare and my friend asked me if I was ticklish. So, of course, I had to say yes. I told them it was my feet, so they took my foot and started to tickle it. No reaction. They accused me of lying, so I told them that I wasn't. They just had to work out HOW to do it. Eventually, though, I gave it away (I hinted that it was found on a dressing table and hesitated when they said it). And they pinned me down, whipped out a hairbrush, and I just about died. It's completely UNBEARABLE!

7 Tongue (Licking)

I was over at my friend's house just hanging out. I was wearing a crop top and lying down on the floor on my phone, and my friend was eating a peanut butter sandwich. Apparently, my entire belly was exposed, and I didn't notice, so my friend had smeared peanut butter all over my belly and belly button and played it off as if he dropped peanut butter. Instead of wiping it up with a paper towel, he began to lick my belly and belly button. I was laughing so hard, especially when he started licking my belly button.

8 Paintbrush

My friend loves to paint. Once, I went over to her house while she was painting a picture, although I can't remember what exactly she was painting. I was lying on her couch right next to her. She was running out of red paint for her artwork. She asked me to go to the garage and get her more. As her friend, I of course went to get her the red paint from the garage. When I came back, and once again as her friend, I jokingly made fun of her painting. I then went to lay back on her couch.

At the time, I was wearing a crop top, which exposed most of my belly. I was looking at my phone, so I wasn't paying any attention to her. To get back at me, instead of pouring the paint into a small cup, she took the bottle of red paint and squirted it into my belly button. It was cold and gooey sitting in my navel. As if that wasn't enough, she took her paintbrush and stuck it in my belly button and swirled it all around. It tickled an ungodly amount, and I couldn't stop laughing. It was too perfect for her. She knew my belly button and belly were my weakest spots. I couldn't get up and clean myself up because I would've spilled the paint everywhere. I begged her to get a towel for me, but she wouldn't let up. I never wear anything that shows my belly button around her anymore, painting or not.

9 Your Hair

This is quite funny actually, that you can use your own hair to tickle someone! This can work either way because men have their facial hair and women have their long smooth hair, so both are very effective!

Yes, my friends at school have this obsession with stroking their hair on their faces, and I'm just sat there like, How the hell are you not cringing and laughing right now?

10 An Animal

Once when I went camping with my family down by the lake, while everyone else was swimming, I was tanning on the beach in my bikini. As I was lying there, I hadn't noticed anything happening. However, it seemed that a spider had crawled up my strap and was staring directly at me. I had a sudden feeling that I was being watched by a little tickle monster. I looked down and saw the spider. It froze and stared at me, then darted down my belly. As it skittered down, it tickled all over, and I giggled a little, trying not to cause a scene. Then it dove into my navel to hide, kept moving, and wiggled its legs, tickling my belly button so bad I burst out laughing so hard.

Another time, I was lying on my sleeping bag in my tent taking a nap. My younger brother came in undetected and put a little worm in my belly button (I was wearing a smaller pajama shirt, and I was stretched out, so you could see my navel). I woke up to a light tickling sensation. I kinda liked it though, so I let it wriggle and tickle me.

The Contenders
11 Raspberries

I love raspberries. I used to get them when I was little, and I love the vibrations. So ticklish, especially on my upper inner thighs and belly button.

I have an older girlfriend who has a pretty dominant instinct. She tickles me to discipline me, and since I told her about my ticklish belly, she always blows raspberries on it. She forces me to let her do it even if the ticklishness from her lips drives me crazy. At home, she takes my shirt and lays it in her handbag so she can get to my belly whenever she wants. She also lets her female friends blow raspberries on my belly while she holds my hands. Luckily for her, it at least turns me on, so I just can't make her stop even if it's torturous.

12 Your Own Toes

Truly the best way to be tickled. My cousin and girlfriend do this to me all the time. My cousin would sit on me and use her toes to tickle me so much. Her toes wiggled so fast. My girlfriend tickles me, but when I pull her away, she puts her toes on me. I laugh, and she pushes me away, still using her toes to tickle me for a long time.

This happens to be very effective when using your toes to tickle someone (works wonders in a tickle fight). This works in many places, but underarms and ribs are the best!

Play airplane, lift the person with your feet. Once they are up on your feet, wiggle your toes on their tummy.

Really ticklish, my dad tickled me like this with his toes.

13 Poking

My friends used to poke me all the time. I am quite ticklish on my sides and belly area. My friend came over and poked both of my sides at the same time. They came up behind me and poked me. As a reaction, I jerked my arms back and elbowed my friend in the face. I gave them a bloody nose, and nobody ever poked me again.

I was sitting in English and my friend poked my side, and I jerked away from him, for obvious reasons. He found that funny, and continued.

This is how everyone found out I was ticklish! I was ignoring my friends so they poked me in the side and I laughed. Ever since then, they always tickle me.

14 Kissing

Basically, every fanfiction that I wrote having to do with tickling has one scene or another where the tickler (usually a male anime character) kisses his victim's (usually a female anime character) feet. I wish I had a boyfriend that would worship my feet!

My girlfriend loves to kiss my belly and if I don't let her she would start pinning me down and licking and kissing my belly.

I kiss and tickle my girlfriend's belly all the time. It feels so nice!

15 Love-Bite

I would say a love-bite because if you have a sexy, friendly-looking girlfriend and you wanted to tickle her by gently biting her belly, I would recommend love-biting.

16 Electric Massager

Man, my BFF knew how ticklish I am, and one night she came and used her tri-leg electric massager on my feet! I screamed. It was so bad! Great method for tickle torture.

This device can be torture between the toes or underarms, or anywhere for that matter. I wish I had one myself to see what it feels like.

17 Vibrations

Sometimes I forget that I put my mobile phone on vibrate and freak out whenever someone texts or calls me (my blazer pocket is right over my sides, and that is my most sensitive spot ever)!

I haven't heard much about it, but from the tickling videos I've seen, there is this device called the Magic Wand. Apparently, outside of the feeling of pleasure, sometimes it tickles a woman good like a regular tickle tool!

Sometimes my friend Cambree would use her voice next to my sides and it would tickle insanely. I would have to keep it in because I would be in school.

18 Pencil/Pen

One time my friend was drawing a picture and she was running out of paper and decided I was the next best thing. I was wearing a sports bra so basically all of my belly was visible. He took his pencil and started writing lines all over my belly and it tickled like crazy. The worst part was when he stuck the pencil in my belly button and swirled it everywhere, which tickled so much I was just dying of laughter.

At school, my friends always draw all over themselves. I never did. When asked why, I said it felt really wrong and kinda hurt, that I couldn't draw, or that the inks could be toxic.

When I was hanging at my friend's house with one other friend, they drew all over each other. They're both great artists. Riley went to come do me on my arm, and I refused. Meg tried to do it by force, and managed to pin me down. Riley started drawing on my hand. I started laughing and squirming. They laughed and kept going.

Now they do it like all the time in class. So annoying, so agonizing, but so much fun!

19 Feather Duster

One time, I made my friend clean with a feather duster while I sat on the couch with my feet up. What did they do? They came up to me sneakily and held my foot in a lock because the only thing I do when I get tickled is I weaken and I laugh. So, they tickle tortured me for a half-hour with it.

Maids have teased this method all the time. They don't even know the effect of them using this to clean makes some people feel if they see them using the duster to clean!

Feather dusters are wonderful for tickling the entire body.

20 Light Touch

I love just being lightly tickled. It is torture! If anyone would like to, they can come tie me up, blindfold me, and I will tell them all of my tickle spots.

I can do this to myself, a light touch on my shoulder, and I break out in a fit of giggles. Once I do it, if I try again it feels like I know when I'm going to tickle. Aka, I turn into a ninja!

If you lightly glide your hands over my sides, tummy, feet, and the back of my thighs, then it tickles like crazy!

21 Nylons

Nylon fabric increases the ticklishness of already sensitive skin.

22 Ice Cubes

It was a hot day, so I got a few ice cubes from the fridge. I then took off my shirt and placed the ice cubes on my ribs and stomach. They started to glide around and this tickled me a lot.

Cold! But glide it across the skin and certain areas will make them giggle!

It works. Try putting skinny cylinder ice cubes between their toes.

23 Pinwheel

I made this tool where feathers are on the pinwheels. I put them on two tables where I'm in between them. Two fans blow them and keep my arms up. It's a fun little tickle machine. I also adjust them so that they can tickle my feet and belly.

There are many different versions, but each one I've seen works!

24 Comb
25 Headless Electric Toothbrush

One time while brushing my teeth with my electric toothbrush, I wondered if it could be used without the bristle head. It turns out it can. It vibrated, so I thought it might make a good tickling device.

To test it out, I used it on myself, as I love being tickled. I placed it in the middle of the knot part of my belly button, turned it on, and wow, did that tickle like crazy! I use it to tickle my sister's belly button (she has an outie, so it's extremely fun to mess with) whenever she sleeps in too late. It usually is a good wake-up call.
