Lower body tickling positions
Positions that best expose the lower body to tickling may be different or need to be adapted from those used for upper body tickling. The setup of positions is described in Upper Body Tickling Positions. This section deals specifically with how they may be applied for lower body tickling.
Inverted Y and Spread Eagle
When placed face down in the inverted Y or Spread Eagle position, the feet of the ticklee can be tied so that their soles hang just off the edge of the bed, ankles in line with the bottom of the mattress. This leave the soles delightfully exposed, and makes it very easy for the tickler to sit across an ankle facing the foot, to really ensure the foot cannot move at all. The only real disadvantage of this position, and face-down spread eagle, is that the feet are tied apart and therefore it is not easy to tickle both at the same time. This problem can be overcome by using two ticklers, or by tying the feet together at the end of the bed and sitting across both ankles.
This position also ensures that the back of the knees and thighs is exposed with minimal movement allowed. The inner thighs are also vulnerable to both light stroking and more intense squeezing tickles.
Hogtie exposes the feet which are held up in the air away from the body, but can also be great for upper body tickling. There is an interesting psychological effect on the ticklee from having their feet so obviously exposed in this position.
Once a ticklee is hogtied on their belly, it is easy to push them onto their back and pull the legs apart, exposing the inner thighs to squeezing tickles.
