This could prove quite lucrative.  In a sense, it's a kind of in-person ASMR.  Beyond that I have to imagine for a lot of people, the pandemic has left a lot of people touch-starved.

The list of shiver-inducing services is short and sweet: hair play, back tickles, or both, for 25 or 50 minutes.
Back tickles can involve feathers and textures, "shape tracing," and a soft touch or firmer scratches for more ticklish individuals. Likewise, the hair play sessions can also involve a variety or combs or devices.


My wife does this for me from time to time.  The world, my tinnitus, and my overactive thoughts just fade away during it.  I don't think I'd be comfortable with anyone else doing it, though.  I'm pretty much Brak when it comes to being touched by anyone else.

Let me guess, for a price the tickling has a happy ending.

They're opening one in New Orleans, in the Quarter.  Look for the French Tickler in 2021.

"Happy ending" is when you pee your pants?

Maybe for one but, not the other.

My partner likes me to tickle his back hair, I should send him there instead.

Remember the back tickles you loved as a kid, the black magic your mom used to put you straight to sleep?

Uh... no? WTF are you talking about? Who has a ticklish back, and why would that make you go to sleep?

The tickling just changes location.

Also, I'm guessing you can only have nine tickles, because if you have one more you'll turn into an octopus.

No. That's just you. I think BetterHelp online counseling is offering specials these days so you may want to look into that...

They stole my idea.
I wanted to start a 'scratch' parlor.
Basically for people who have dry skin or just like getting scratched.
you lie down on a table, a therapist uses something to itch your skin and then scratch the itch for relief. Or if you are dry as a bone in winter like I get, use some sort of soft to hard brush that scratches your back, legs, arms...etc..

ArcadianRefugee: I still have no clue wtf "ASMR" is supposed to be.



Scientific American did a short piece on it last year.

It's a kind of tingly sensation, but not the kind one might get from certain music, memories, etc.  Usually it's triggered by certain sounds (tapping, scratching, whispering) or visuals (watching someone draw, watching someone scratch someone else's back or brush their hair).  It can be very relaxing or mesmerizing.  A lot of people, myself included, find it useful when falling asleep.

The first time I experienced it I was probably six or seven, and I was watching one of my friends draw.  I've also gotten it from watching some fractal or psychedelic videos (or in my younger days, screensavers).

Not every trigger works for every person, and some people don't get it all.  Many people (myself included) find ASMR videos really uncomfortable at first, especially anything where the person is interacting with the camera as if it was your face.  It's intimate, for lack of a better word.  Once (or if) you're able to mentally internalize that you're not actually interacting with a person, it increases the odds of it being enjoyable.

That's what it's *supposed to be*, anyway.  Now it's that, plus a lot of people doing roleplays of everything from dentists to receptionists to fictional characters, and people writing and acting out short scripts and creating characters.  Basically you can do pretty much anything that doesn't involve loud noises, and preferably whisper or talk softly, and label it ASMR.

This parody video manages to make fun of it and be it at the same time.

Someday when Ed Asner is asleep, hold a pillow over his face and scream "What is your last name?!"

I'd pay for that. I've had a couple of girlfriends (and my wife) who loved to scratch my back. Gah....absolute bliss.

the idea literally came up when my wife said, "stop asking me to scratch you, go pay someone" ... LOL

Mock all you want but a tickle bar is no laughing matter.  On second thought, maybe it is.

I for one *love* the back of my lower neck touched/tickled and I do not mind admitting that.

And then, of course, they use lotion on your dry skin to add some moisture, make it more pliable....

Sounds great but the drink specials at Uncle Touchy's Naked Puzzle Basement are better.
