A Pipedream customer recently asked a curious question: Why can’t we make ourselves laugh by tickling ourselves?
You break out into fits of laughter and giggles–and occasional sobs–when your lover gets you into an inescapable position and attacks the most ticklish parts of your bodies with their evil hands. Or, for fear of being suspected as some self-destruct clown, you try your best to keep a straight face as the airport TSA pat you up and down–and you JUST KNOW that some part of their training program told them to pay extra attention to the armpit and waist area. However, when you try to tickle yourself, nothing happens! Why?!
According to an article from howstuffworks.com, humans are naturally programmed to laugh when tickled by another person or thing. This puts us into an immediate state of panic and uneasiness, causing us to laugh uncontrollably. In addition, the part of our brain called the “cerebellum” can tell the difference between an external tickling vs. self-induced tickling; this ability to distinguish one from the other was most likely developed during early times when our hunter-gatherer ancestors’ survival depended on being able to detect the sudden scratching, pawing, biting, slithering or rubbing of predators against our prehistoric skins.
Now that we don’t have to worry too much about getting jumped by caterpillars, tickling in the modern era usually takes place between friends, family members, and sweethearts. It’s a fun way to stay playful and a great precursor to foreplay for lovers, and Pipedream offers a wide variety of ticklers to bring a mixture of laughter and pleasure into the bedroom.
