Video: Did Ticklers Serve Russian Empresses?
In the days of tsarist Russia, there was a profession that is "dead" today - tickler. It was an important profession, since the people who mastered it could serve the queen herself. The tickler's job was to excite, excite and entertain Russian tsarist women.
Tickling was not only an unusual form of foreplay - it was sometimes performed as a separate pleasure. In his book The Sex Life of the Foot and Shoe, author William Rossi reports that tickling as an intimate pleasure has been practiced in Moscow's palaces for centuries.
Only women and eunuchs had the right to master the profession. Thanks to discipline and perseverance, these people were able to bring their skills to unprecedented heights - and their employer too. An experienced tickler's skills paid well.
The tickling process was accompanied by the singing of obscene ballads and erotic stories read aloud.
Princess Anna Leopoldovna, presumably, was served by about six ticklers. There is evidence that many Russian noble women used this professional service. The most famous tickling lover at the time was Catherine the Great.
But Russia is not the only place where this practice was widespread. Even in ancient Egypt, according to the surviving records, the female pharaoh Hatshepsut used anise oil to prepare her feet for the tickling ritual before sexual intercourse. The eunuch had to tickle her feet with a peacock feather until she reached arousal.
The feet are an incredibly sensitive area. According to current research, tickling activates parts of the brain that are responsible for sensing pain and touch.
