Are you ticklish? If so, what kind? Does it make you wanna kick people? Or, do you enjoy it?
"Excessive tickling is abusive; it is a common tactic of bullies to torture by tackling and tickling. Tickling is also a proto-sexual activity that is very much in a gray area between OK and unacceptable."

"I'm not ticklish," I told my daughter as a child. "Go tickle your dad." Claire was an adorable, little tickle machine.
That was big, fat lie. I am very ticklish. But I had a goal. When she tickled me, I kept a straight face. It worked. Claire jumped on her dad instead.
If it's someone I trust to stop instead of going too far then it's OK now and then. Most of the time I'm not relaxed enough to be ticklish and will just be annoyed.
Either way not stopping when asked isn't OK in my book (and I feel the same goes for tickling our kids, or we're teaching them they can't say "no".
I'm extremely ticklish, and I don't enjoy it at all. It actually made a girlfriend of mine, years ago, mildly angry that I couldn't lie still while she ran her fingers down my sides under my arms. I know she was trying to be sensual and sexy, and I was mucking it up by squirming and jerking away whenever she made contact, but I couldn't help it.
