    OK, yet another poll!

    Me, I'm very ticklish, and I like to get into tickle fights, even if I lose. I love that feeling of out of control laughter. My mate is not very ticklish at all, only in a few spots, and he gets crabby.

    But I like the feeling, and have always wondered why it exists. I mean, what evolutionary purpose might it serve?

    I'm very ticklish, to the point that when I was a kid, tickling could leave me all contorted and unable to move. Some other kids used to tease me by tickling, so I didn't really find much pleasure in that. Luckily it never really got to the point of "tickle torture" (which is a real thing!).

    Here's a small article on the origin of tickling.

    I'm extremely ticklish and I can't stand being tickled. Curiously, my thighs are very ticklish. My friend squeezed it one day in the car ("yellow car!") and I laughed and cried out, much to my friends' amusement.

    Occasionally very ticklish, yet hate it. I have to resist with all my being from cracking the tickler with an elbow or something to get them to stop. Mostly it just hurts.

    I'm not ticklish, but I still hate being tickled because it can hurt. Usually I jump when someone startles me that way.

    I'm and very very ticklish. I used to love getting tickled as a kid, but now I'm not really a huge fan. Maybe because whenever people try to tickle me, they do it too roughly so it kinda hurts.

    I'm only slightly ticklish. But I can't stand being tickled. :S

    I literally get violent when people tickle me. I have the uncontrollable laughter but I'm swinging fists the entire time.

    I like to be rubbed with the fingertips, so I wouldn't necessarily consider it tickling too much, but I'm pretty much putty if you get my lower back or my shoulders. It's a really relaxing feeling.

    I like an affectionate tickle, and my tickle-revenge is swift and devastating! :badgrin:

    I don't really like being tickled. I can't control my body movements when the tickling starts!

    One of my friends was tickling me once and I accidently elbowed them in the face, they
    didn't tickle me again. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
