This photo-set was shot by a tickle fetish expert. It was my first set based on this kink and I’d been anticipating it for weeks before it finally happened. I have very sensitive feet so the excitement built up for days beforehand. My objective was to produce a set that captured all of my natural and unrehearsed reactions to the random, unexpected tickles on the soles of my feet. Posing for photo-shoots usually means smiling and pouting in a practised way. This time, the value of the images would rest in my spontaneous responses captured in the moment. They might not be my prettiest looks but the honesty of my laughter would make the point. I arrived at the photographer’s studio and I showed him my extensive collection of stockings. We’d agreed that the right pair would be an important part of the success of the set. He explained his ideas for the scenario which included sitting me on a hard office chair, tying my ankles to a horizontal metal bar and placing a blindfold on me. When we began, the reality of the ankle restraint became clear. He used his skilled hand first and the delicious tension in the pauses between his abrupt tickles reminded me of being spanked. When it got too much I told him to stop. Then, unknown to me, he began to use his “secret tickling implements” and, because of the blindfold, I had no idea what they might be.

Although many people find being tickled themselves or tickling someone else to be a pleasurable experience-even a social one-tickling fetishists take it much further than that. They experience an intense erotic charge by placing the act of tickling into a strictly formalised scenario and they use it only under controlled conditions in an almost theatrical display. The fetish for tickling-or Knismolagnia-is enjoyed by fetishists to the exclusion of other pre-intercourse activities. For some, their sexual focus is placed exclusively on the tickling aspect with actual sex being secondary or even redundant. For the committed fetishist, advanced tickling games can be enhanced even more by the inclusion of some form of physical restraint applied to the person being tickled to prevent them protecting themselves or interfering with the game. The tied-up partner may also be blindfolded to increase their anxiety and add the element of surprise. Preferred tickle spots can include the feet, navel, armpits, breasts, nipples, ribs, sides, stomach and genitals. Erogenous zones are particularly receptive to tickles and,in this case, applying it to those areas is not generally associated with laughter or sudden withdrawal. The intention of the fetishist is to use continuous tickling to induce writhing, uncontrolled movements and involuntary vocalisations in their subject.
