Why Do People Laugh When Tickled?
Why do humans laugh when tickled? What is going on that humans get a reaction like that from being tickled?
I'm no scientist but off the top of my head, I presume it's an impulse to protect our most vulnerable areas?
I do not know the medical reason. I have an opinion, however.
Tickling is a minor irritation of the nerve endings. Nerves in the skin are designed to determine touch sensation and pain. Since the tickle intensity is less than pain, but more than a grazing touch, the brain is confused, and doesn't know how to process the input.
Therefore, the result may be a "nervous laugh" reaction. Some people claim not to be ticklish--stating that it's a mind-over-matter situation.
Those who are the most ticklish usually say that being tickled, while certainly not painful, is not pleasant, either, supporting my 'nervous laughter' theory.

Why has the level of comedians stoop to an all time low?It seems that comedians have to use profanity and lots of sex to make people laugh. What happened to the double entendre in comedy?
