Guide to Feather Ticklers
This might be one of the most controversial types of torture that falls within the world of BDSM - though some people might not consider it torture at all. And we’re not even talking about pain here! No no, this is another much more sinister type of deviant play.
Can you guess what it is? Tickling! That’s right, some people find tickling to be one of the most strenuously challenging forms of torture imaginable. And if you are into being tickled or want to take someone to the brink with some ticklish torture, then a feather tickler is something you need to get your hands on.
Feather ticklers explained
While other tools in the BDSM world focus on hardness, firmness and the ability to inflict pain, feather ticklers are all about conjuring that universal sensation that people either love or hate. Ticklers act in the same way fingernails dancing across ribs or the soles of the feet do - causing a spectacular nervous reaction! Ticklers often come as a long handle with a feather on the end - perfect for reaching out and teasing.
The lightest touch
Tickling really is the polar opposite of many other BDSM activities - but it does manage to fit right in. Much play is based on taking sensation to an extreme limit. And while BDSM play usually focuses on harder levels of pain, it does also feature a desire for endurance. Tickle torture works the same way. People may find the tickling challenging, but they want to endure it. Feather ticklers fit right in because it allows the tickle top to be at a bit of a distance from the bottom. Very thrilling!
The sweetest torture
One of the best ways to really get giggling with a feather tickler is to use it on a person who is (consensually) bound and cannot get away. To take it to another extreme, have them restrained in a standing position, away from the way. That way, they won’t even be able to diminish the tickling sensation by rolling around. When standing and bound, your partner has to take and endure all of the tickling that is offered. You can just stand back and lightly flick the tickler over their skin and watch the goose bumps form as they squirm.
How feather ticklers can be used
A feather tickler is much like other sex toys like crops, whips and floggers. With a built in handle, you simply move the feathers over skin. You can do it quickly or slowly, a lot or a little. Trying different types of stimulation could result in different reactions.
One of the great differences between other BDSM items and ticklers is that you can use them all over the body. For other BDSM toys, you generally need to avoid the head, neck and chest. It just so happens that it would be fine and fun to run the delicate feathers behind the ears, around the nipples and up the side of the neck. And you really should know your partner’s ticklish spots. The feet? The armpits? On the other hand, it could be fun to find those spots yourself!
And, of course, ticklers can be quite a treat around the genitals! Sure, you might actually be ticklish down there too, but if you can handle it, feather ticklers can feel like a sexy treat - if you can keep from laughing too much!
