Like f*ck you can`t tickle yourself. Yeah, that article`s content is an influence, but it certainly ain`t 100% precise, that`s for sure. Still think it`s somewhat interesting though. Crowe

I can tickle myself to the same extent other people can tickle me.

I can, sorta, if I very lightly touch my fingers to my sides... but it`s not as unbearable as when somebody else tickles me, that`s true. :-D

cheapleis 138, I know what you mean, but brushing the roof of your mouth is by far not as unbearable as being tickled by someone else.

Sadly, not true. Try lightly brishing your finger across the roof of your mouth.
