P.E.T.E. (Pedular Enthusiast Ticklee Extraordinaire) has been a long-time tickling enthusiast, a proud (and skilled) foot fetishist and a member of bdsm and tickling communities, on-line for 12 years and off-line for 9 years. P.E.T.E is a member of the popular on-line community, Tickling Media Forum, and has participated in tickle gatherings given by members of the forum. P.E.T.E. co-presented “Beyond Feathers: Tickling 102”, a highly successful tickle demo class at the NELA 2008 Winter Fetish Fleamarket along with SaintTQ. He has since taught classes at Ramrod in Boston, two of the first classes to be taught at Club Hell in Providence, RI for their wednesday fetish night series and classes for the Kink Academy prior to their Tickle Night events. P.E.T.E., along with his tickling comrades at Tickle New England!, has run two successful Tickling FUNdraisers for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. He co-facilitates tickle play events for Tickle New England!, a yahoo group/community that he created to help organize and provide information and support for the New England tickle community (he regularly and politely turns away applicants from all over the world outside of New England who find the TNE! mixture of social support and playful connection very attractive). P.E.T.E. has introduced tickling to many newbies, novices and interested parties, sometimes, joyfully, finding himself tied and tickled at the odd and sundry bdsm event. P.E.T.E. is never far from his day-bag, complete with a few lengths of sturdy rope and a pair of fuzzy, nylon wrist/ankle cuffs just in case someone needs an emergency tickle session. One of the most willing and highly ticklish Lees (ticklees) you will ever find, P.E.T.E. is also a highly-skilled and devious Ler (tickler), relentless in his application of mind-games and tickle play, adept at finding new tickle spots on people that didn’t think they had any, inventing new ways of tickling others (and himself) with the most unexpected every day, household items. He does most of his shopping for tickle implements at his local drug store.
P.E.T.E. is also highly interested in exploring the healthy (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and therapeutic benefits of tickling and laughter and is currently working to incorporate it into his work as a healer and body-worker.
P.E.T.E. embraces tickling as a fun, sensual and erotic practice that holds great and dynamic benefits for those who practice it with openness, honesty and consensual integrity. Tickling is a practice that just about anyone can be involved in with just about anyone else. He has experienced the deep bonding that tickling brings to couples, friends and communities and seeks to share it with more and more willing and playful people in the New England area and beyond.
P.E.T.E. and Tickle New England! are available to organize and facilitate tickle events, gatherings, parties, classes and FUNdraisers. P.E.T.E. can also help people to bring tickling into their social and private lives, providing personal instruction and support.
