What is a feather tickler?
Often, when you want to give your love life a new impuls, some will say you should start with (mild) BDSM. A feather tickler is also sometimes seen as a BDSM toy. But even when you are not ‘into’ that, you can still enjoy these toys. For many people the step into bondage, temperature play or spanking can be quite big. A feather tickler can be a nice interim step, because it is less intimidating than leather straps, whips, or even dildos and vibrators.
A feather tickler looks a bit like a feather duster: it is a bunch of feathers on a stick. Only, you are not supposed to dust off the furniture with it; just your love life.
The goal of using the feather tickler is to use it to stimulate the senses. By touching your partner all over the body with it, you will stimulate the nerve endings. That will make the entire skin more sensitive.
The great thing about a feather tickler is that you can use it in both a romantic and a kinky setting. You can tickle with it, but you can also gently use it to hit. That makes a feather tickler a versatile toy that can be used for many hot adventtures
How to use a feather tickler?
It’s very easy to use a feather tickler. Just hold the handle and move the feathers on the skin of your partner. He or she will experience the soft titillation and the skin will become extra sensitive.
Just experiment by letting the feathers stroke your partner in different ways. You can let the feathers barely touch the skin, or rub it a bit harder. Make long strokes, or move the handle between the fingers so it makes a twirling movement.
Use the feather tickler like you would do a massage. Start on the back of your partner from the neck down, along the buttock and over the legs. Just remember that the soles of the feet can be very tickly and not everyone will enjoy that. Then move to the front of the body, from the neck to the arms. The inside of the elbows is very sensitive. Then tease the breasts and nipples and go further down. Leave the genitals to the very last.
Tips for using feather ticklers
Of course a feather ticklers feels nice, but the best part of any erotic arousal is in between the ears. You can intensify the experience when you pay attention to the atmosphere. Make sure the setting is nice, with some dimmed light, a relaxing music and a nice scented candle.
You might also want to perfume the feathers to enhance the fragrance senses.
When one sense is stimulated, it can be enhanced by disabling another. In this case you can for example pt a blindfold on with your partner. With a blindfold on, every touch will feel extra intense.
If you like – or dare – you can take it a step further by tying your partner down. If your partner can’t move, it will make things even more exciting.
