    Why am I ticklish?

    Why do some parts of the body have the involuntary response of feeling ticklish when touched in certain ways?

    We all have gargalesis, that is the tickle zones on our bodies. It seems it is a form of bonding with pleasure when we are young and eventually will lead to sex as both release endorphines, One causes a nervous reaction that brings forth laughter, the other is quite different. Most people are most susceptible to this sensation on the bottoms of the feet regardless of the fact that the palms are the most sensitive. The pain receptors are related to the tickle 'nerves' but surgery can damage some of the pain receptors but not the tickle response. I think most primates are ticklish and I am certain my dogs are. I am most susceptible to it on my neck. tickle-tickle kirsten, some people will laugh if one only points a finger at one of their tickle zones. A nervous reaction. point, point. LOL
