Tickles are a great way to flirt, play with your kids, or get what you want. The tickle fight is guaranteed to be an exciting time, but if you can win the tickle fight then it's certainly much more fun. To win a tickle battle, you must learn the basics of tickling and use a tickling strategy that is sure to win. If you want to know how to win a tickle fight, follow these steps.
Method 1 of 5: Use Basic Tick
Step 1. Know how to pin your opponent down
Pinching your opponent is critical to tickling success. If the opponent's arms and legs were free, he would be able to retaliate immediately. You have to find a way to quickly pin and trap your opponent in order to take advantage of your tickling skills. There are various ways to pinpoint your opponent, including:
- Clamp your opponent's arms above his head with your feet while he is lying on his back.
- Sit on your opponent's chest and press his arms on the floor with your hands.
- Pinch your opponent by sitting on his knees or grab his ankles when he's lying on his back.
- Pin your opponent sitting on his back when he's face down, and press his hands on the ground.
Step 2. Find the part of your opponent's body most prone to tickling
Everyone's most ticklish-sensitive area is different, so you should experiment with tickling different parts of your body to see when your opponent seems most startled and panicked, or when he's screaming, screaming, and laughing uncontrollably. If your opponent begs, begs for mercy, and there's a sudden increase in movement, then you know you've found your opponent's weak point. Here are some tickle-prone sections to try:
- Feet, toes, and tendons between the heel and calf
- Belly and navel
- Armpits, ribs and waist
- The knee and the area just above the knee
- Hands and palms
- Neck and back of neck
Step 3. Have no mercy
If you tickle your opponent to agree to do something, don't stop until you get what you want. Whether you're tickling your opponent for remote control, a free massage, or a dinner date, don't stop until he gives up.
Don't stop just because your opponent says, "I can't breathe!" If he laughs and can talk, then he can still breathe. But if he's really unable to breathe and it sounds like he's having trouble breathing, then you should stop immediately
Method 2 of 5: Use Tickle with Two Hands and Two Feet
Step 1. Make your opponent face down
To have your opponent face down, you can start when your opponent is on their back, then tickle their armpit until they turn face down.
Step 2. Sit on the top of his back facing his feet
Keep tickling her waist so she can't stand it.
Step 3. Tuck your toes in your armpits or waist
You don't have to place it right in the armpit, just move your leg along the surrounding area. If you're not wearing footwear, make sure your fingernails are trimmed short so you don't scratch your opponent.
Step 4. Start tickling your armpit with the side of your foot
Also move your legs along the ribs. You can start by tickling your lower back with your hands for maximum effect. Remember that you want to use both hands and feet, so the sooner you start the better.
You can hold off your opponent by using the inside of your foot and heel
Step 5. Reach forward to tickle your opponent's feet
Tick his feet too. If she's still wearing her shoes, take them off to maximize your tickling skills.
Step 6. Keep tickling your opponent's legs, waist, and armpits until he gives up
Beware of the opponent's free arm. You must start your tickle attack immediately so that he is powerless to resist.
Method 3 of 5: Use Ticks on Three Parts of the Body
Step 1. Make sure your opponent is weak enough
This is a must before trying the vicious "Tickling in Three Parts of the Body". You want your opponent to have no chance at all to retaliate.
Step 2. Pin your opponent on his back
Sit on his chest and hold his arms on the floor.
Step 3. Quickly slide down to sit on her stomach
Release his hands when you do this.
Step 4. Tickle his armpits with your hands
Tickle his left armpit with your right hand and his right armpit with your left hand. Remember to do it quickly so your opponent doesn't have time to fight back with his free hand. He'd better be so weak that he doesn't remember that his hands are free.
Step 5. Begin rubbing your chin against your opponent's neck, ribs, and stomach
Keep in mind that this is very intimate, so it's best not to make this gesture with someone you don't really know.
If your opponent isn't wearing an upper, try swiping a raspberry across his stomach
Method 4 of 5: Use Tickle on Two Feet
Step 1. Face your opponent
Ideally, both of you are already lying on the floor, bed, or other soft surface.
Step 2. Place your opponent on your back with both feet pointing at you
You can do this at the start of a tickle fight, or after you've done some other tickling tactic. The Triple Tickle is a very effective warm-up move for the "Two Legs Tickle," since your opponent is already on their back.
Step 3. Squat down in front of your opponent's feet
You should be facing the sole of the foot.
Step 4. Grab one of her ankles with one hand
Tighten your grip.
Step 5. Tick your opponent's footwear with your free hand
Alternate between the legs, and try to tickle the area in the middle of the leg, which is the most sensitive area.
Step 6. Be prepared to dodge
Opponents will try to kick their legs and squirm, so be prepared to dodge left and right when your opponent moves erratically before finally giving up.
Make sure to keep your face away from your opponent's feet. Your goal is to win tickles, not lose your front teeth
Method 5 of 5: Use the Powerful Knee Tickle
Step 1. Pin the opponent on his back
This is a great move worth trying once you've weakened your opponent with tickling moves.
Step 2. Sit on her stomach
Place your knees on the sides of his body.
Step 3. Hold her hand
Hold it tightly around each wrist.
Step 4. Raise your body until both knees are above his chest
To do this, you have to shift your body.
Step 5. Tickle his chest and stomach with your knees
Step 6. Tickle the armpits and ribs with your knees
Your tickle can alternate between the chest, abdomen, armpits or ribs. Measure your opponent's reaction to see which tickling tactics work best.
Step 7. Once your opponent is ready to surrender, tickle his wrists and forearms
Make sure your opponent is weak by then, or he'll be able to retaliate with his hands.
- When tickling someone with fur, use short, quick strokes at the weak points of the tickle, while for the belly and legs use long, gentle strokes.
- Attacking their weak spots will ensure their weak points suffer the worst in your tickling war!
- If the person being tickled is trying to push you with their feet, this is an opportunity for you. Catch and hold one of their feet by the ankle. Then with one or more fingers, lightly tickle the exposed part of the foot. If he wears shoes or socks, act quickly and remove them. Make sure you hold your ankles tightly, because tickling your feet isn't always easy!
- Remember that if the person laughs, it doesn't mean he or she is having fun. Be aware and sensitive to the possibility that your tickling may be excruciating for them, and this can have major and negative side effects. Try not to torture and not be too cruel.
- Have fun but don't be sadistic. Give them some time off, which will make it more fun and make them paranoid. Your tickle should not last longer than five minutes.
- Never tickle with strangers, unless given permission. Once permission is granted, tickle at a lighter intensity than you would a close friend.
- Listen to the most common plea, "I can't breathe." To make sound, we must move air through the vocal cords. Only when your opponent says, "I can't breathe," do you know that he really can't breathe, and should refer to the warning in the following sentence. While it's clear that your opponent is still breathing when you say this, it may be best to loosen up your pressure a bit, as this is usually a sign that he's starting to have trouble breathing.
- Close your opponent's eyes to increase the tickle when tickled.
- If someone starts to get angry, and says over and over again to stop tickling him, stop. It's no longer worth winning a tickle if it hurts your friendship.
- Socks are a versatile tool for tickling. Socks can make your feet more sensitive to tingling when you take them off. Thin socks can make your feet tickle even more when you wear them. Likewise, long socks can be used to blindfold or tie an opponent so that a) stop him from retaliating against you, and b) protect your opponent and you from tickling your opponent (some people have an overreaction when tickled).
- Be careful if your opponent doesn't use their feet to push you, otherwise it's your turn to be tickled all of a sudden! This is always dangerous unless you are assisted by someone to secure your opponent's legs.
- First and foremost, make sure the person you're tickling likes to be tickled. People who REALLY hate being tickled can react violently on reflex BEFORE they have time to think about it. Other unwanted reactions include vomiting and asthma attacks.
- Make sure the person you're tickling doesn't have urinary control problems, is easily dizzy or nauseous, otherwise you'll have to clean up the mess.
- You want the person to be tickled on their back.
- Kids love to be tickled!
- If the person you're tickling is wearing socks, take them off and use them to tickle him or her.
