    Because when a guy tickles you, he is trying to find your horny spots too

    Tickling is about crossing social boundaries and it's hard to cross social boundaries with yourself (unless you have multiple personalities )

    When you tickle yourself, you know it's coming and can prepare.

    I can if I try hard enough. Usually only when I fart though.

    I'm so ticklish I think that this thread just made me freak out. I'm pretty sure I can't even tickle myself, haha.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Well, the scientific answer is that your brain anticipates your own touch and discounts it (tickling is believed to be a response to unease and panic). Since you're not uneasy or panicked when you're touching yourself, your brain doesn't respond the same way as it would if someone else was doing it.

    Man, I love Google.

    The human brain anticipates unimportant sensations(predicting), such as your own fingers touching you and you knowing the path of such, so it can focus on more important information like lets say, a bug crawling up your neck unexpectedly. It also has something to do with electrical signals but that is way past my pay grade.

    I don't know about that, try lightly scratching the bottom of your foot. I can't often scratch there because it tickles too damn much.

    And Reca, I've been wondering about this since I caught an old episode of The Oblongs the other day.

    I am moderately ticklish. I can usually control it if it doesn't last too long. If I'm already lauging or tired, or the tickler is really persistent I lose it!

    I remember when I was young, just my Dad holding up his hand and flexing his fingers towards me would have me doubled up lauging...at the mere thought of him tickling me.
    It's better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you aren't!
