    I can't 'turn off' my reaction to being tickled - which is generally flailing limbs (look out, you might get kicked, hard), gasping and screaming. I do not like being tickled at all and am very ticklish. When I was a child and people would tickle me I would hyperventilate and cry. There's just something about it I hate, a lot.

    I don't mean a little affectionate 2 second tickle, but sustained, torture-tickling. Yuuuuuuck.

    It's pretty much the same thing now, I just tell my body not to respond and it doesn't.

    Tried it with pain once, not as easy. Still trying.

    5) Begin creating your sophisticated and multi-faceted revenge plot to distract yourself.
    6) This one is risky, but don't fight it so hard. I find I'm more ticklish when I resist. If I lay back, relax, and taunt their ineffective efforts, I'm more immune. (Unless they hit one of my two ticklish pressure points.)

    The last one in particular is key, I think. Perhaps fighting gets the adrenaline going, which increases your sensitivity.
    Okay, cool, I'm gonna try it.

    I can sometimes turn off being tickled, but I can only keep it off for so long and eventually I give in. It's kind of like what Amargith said, you just go into "snooze" mode and relax.

    Either way, I would MUCH prefer doing the tickling as opposed to being the tickled.

    Half my siblings (3) are extremely ticklish. Ive seen where it can be a thing that isn't very fun if someone is overtickled. I am always very careful to make sure I don't overwhelm my kids when I'm tickling them.

    But, but why? I mean, yes it's a nuisance, but it also means those areas are just as sensitive to other kinds of touches. If one has a steady enough hand, it stops being a tickle reaction and turns into a whole other animal.

    Man, I can't believe people would take something so mischievously pure so far. I mean, to cause crying and actual fear? Ugh.

    I do it just enough to cause the person to START losing control, and then relent. Tickling only has one true purpose in life: to irritate the hell out of someone.
