We all know what it’s like to be tickled. 

If you’re ticklish, you know how much it makes you laugh and you’re filled with instantaneous glee (so long as you’re in the right mood!), but when the tickler doesn’t stop tickling you… well things quickly turn to you wanting to smoosh them in the face, because you can’t take anymore tickles.

At that moment, tickle time is definitely OVER. 


We know how much tickling for longer periods of time sucks, so when we heard about this little thing called ‘endurance tickling’ we had ZERO idea of how anyone could endure tickling for this long… 

Competitive Endurance Tickling does indeed exist and it is a sport where grown adults lay on crash mats, are TIED down, and are straddled by other adults who will tickle them to NO end. 

However, there is a LOT of controversy surrounding this ‘sport’ after a documentary about it was released that shows a very DARK side to it, with some videos making their way into the dark web and being featured on porn sites - turning seemingly innocent videos into something sinister.

WARNING: The video contains content not appropriate for younger viewers. 


We don’t think we will be trying this any time soon.
