Tickling is the act of touching a part of the body, so as to cause a tingling sensation, involuntary twitching movements, and/or laughter. Such sensations can be pleasurable or exciting, but are sometimes considered highly unpleasant, particularly in the case of relentless heavy tickling.

Parts of the body that are often particularly ticklish include the soles of the feet, the armpits, and the front of the neck. But basically any part of the body can be tickled, such as the back, buttocks, legs, arms, breast, abdomen, or genitals.

Tickling can be done with one's fingers, but also with one's tongue, or with objects, e.g. a feather, grass, or a thin twig.

Tickling is popular in child's play, but also in adult erotic play, as well as in BDSM. Tickling is or was sometimes even used in torture - a "classic" version of this involves tickling the restrained subject with feathers, or dipping the subject's feet in salt (or brine) and letting a goat lick them with its tongue.
