Lst night Darling Husband and I had the most amazing hour-long tickle fight that turned into a cuddle fest with lots of pillow talk and many deep belly laughs. It’s one of the things I love most about him and our relationship–the way we can be silly together.
As I fell asleep I realized I felt closer to him after that than sometimes after sex. It can be so intimate to be close to each other physically without having sex, and mixed in with so much laughter, the fun meter goes off the chart.
So, do you all agree? Is a tickle fight/cuddle fest/pillow talk/belly laugh as good as sex?

We haven’t actually had sex yet, but we have tickle fights all the time. I definitely know what you mean about it being a great way to bond :).

Fiance and I have amazing cuddles, we spend about an hour before going to sleep cuddling, tickling, back scratches, talking, daydreaming outloud, laughing till we cry,and bonding. I’d say emotionally its better than sex. We don’t have sex very often, maybe 2-3 times a month, But when we do it is amazing, the other night it was 3 hours of raw sexual magnetism. It sounds cliche, but we become so connected during sex that its like we are one person. And that is the best feeling in the world.

Didnt vote because I think there should be an option for “different than sex” – to me its not really comparable. Sex feels great physically and brings us closer in a different way than talking/daydreaming/cuddling/laughing. I love doing those things and feel really close to Darling Husband when we do but to me comparing that to sex is like comparing apples to oranges!

I really, really hate being tickled, so for us tickle fights are in no way comparable to sex. Tickle fights are torture. 🙂
I do think that cuddling, day dreaming, and laughing together are wonderful, and definitely bring us closer.

@PitBulLover: I’m with you – I really don’t feel like you can compare the too.
I HATE being tickled but love cuddleing/pillow talk/etc yet I don’t feel like you can even make a comparison between those things and sex.

Ahhh….I love the tickling/cuddling/laughing! If you ask me, what’s even better than doing it alone is combining it with the sexy time. Then you have the best of both worlds. Fiance has told me he thinks it’s the sexiest thing ever when I laugh when we’re messing around (not at him obviously). He loves trying to tickle me when I’m on top of him – he’s silly and I love it.

Tickling makes me cry.
A little bit is okay/fun, but if it goes too far I go into panic mode/feel trapped and it is not a good day.
Cuddling/pillow talk/laughing together is a completely different/separate from tickling in my world.
We do however spar/play fight (no one ever gets hurt and it’s more like wreslting/a mercy fight than anything), and that is usually fun, but again, very different experience than sexual intimacy.

@PitBulLover: Totally agree. They are incomparable.
But I totally understand what you mean about it being a great way to bond and feel connected. It’s so casual and sweet 🙂

I love snuggling/ relaxing in bed together and laughing and talking. So great.

I agree it’s at least as good as sex, depending on your mood it can be better! I love to cuddle and be silly with Darling Husband.

As good, if not better. Such a treat.

hmm…I put ‘better than’ cuz our goofing off like that usually turns into sex, so it’s an added bonus 🙂
