Experimental observations of infants and children stroked with cotton wisps were used in an attempt to elucidate the psychology of the tickle response. An actual response to tickle first appears at about three and a half years. The authors postulate that it represents the original, painful excitation, fused with sexuality and controlled by the ego. It emerges as a limited, localized pleasure but with a painful, frightening note.
