1. Mission

Progetto Solletico Maschile (pronunciation: proˈdʒɛtto solˈletiko masˈkile; “Male Tickling Project” in Italian) is an international fetish network focusing on the interest toward ticklish men and their feet.
It was founded by Matteo Proietti on 23 March 2010 in Rome, Italy, but it is currently headquartered in Barcelona, Spain.
Every month, our video production sells hundreds of commercial clips portraying young men getting tied up and tickled to more than 40 countries on the planet.
The events agency brings the so called “tickling area” – a space where people can play with tickling and test their limits – to disco nights, festivals, art galleries, beaches and much more.
PSM was the first and only M/M tickling group in Italy and it’s still the only one ever created in Spain.
It has now thousands of enthusiasts around the world, accounting for Twitter and Instagram followers as well as the regular customers of our stores (click here for all our links).
The group’s main purpose is to spread the knowledge about tickling art, erotism and culture.

Based on a survey he conducted for his fascinating book Laughter, neuroscientist Robert Provine notes that adults and adolescents are seven times more likely to be tickled by members of the opposite sex. When asked whom they would most like to be tickled by, there was a fifteenfold disparity.
Because tickling is traditionally played as a game since early childhood, many people who find it gratifying discover a fascination about it right from their puberty. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the so called online tickling community has so many young followers compared to the congregations devoted to other erotic interests.
The varying range of ages (and, consequently, of points of view about one’s own sexual life) is only one of the several characteristics that make the interest in tickling and the community conveying it very difficult to classify.
Another problematic feature of this group is its overall invisibility in the general media and even in the fetish or BDSM subcultures. Obviously, the first requirement for a minority to speak out and get together is to know that they exist. In other words: they need to identify as a group. However, although you might receive a strong “Yes” if you asked a person who clearly displays signs of sexual interest in tickling if they find it “pleasurable” (or other vague questions), it wouldn’t be uncommon to see a confused expression on the interlocutor if you asked them if they have a “tickling fetish”.
The experience of arousal from tickling has been indeed classified as a fetish by psychologists and it falls under the term “knismolagnia”.
While people who do not accept the definition of “tickling fetishists” often engage in unorganized “tickle dates” without any particular role, rule or timetable, people who describe themselves as either “tickler” (the tickle top), “ticklee” (the tickle bottom) or “switch/versatile” (a person who could be both) see tickling games as part of a “soft sadomaso”, where the top takes delight from torturing a usually restrained bottom by tickling the most sensitive spots of his vulnerable body and having him laugh hysterically, cry or beg.
Tickle enthusiasts often suffer from the ugly duckling syndrome, thinking they might be alone or part of a very scant group. However, on Google search engine, even if you manually remove all results involving children (by adding “-child”, “-kid”, etc., to the search) and make sure that what you’re looking at is actual tickling (by adding “foot OR feet”), you get almost 30 million pages about adults getting tickled.
In addition, the most popular adult clips website on the net, Clips4Sale, with over 20 million visitors every month, hosts more than 3000 video companies about female tickling and more than 500 about male tickling, with hundreds of thousands of videos.
