Tickling Daphne H. follows the ticklish journeys of Daphne, Dave, Carol and Harold, exploring how tickling deeply affects the lives of these four people.
The story deals with the many different faces of tickling: the addictive and torturous, the pleasurable and erotic, the humorous and romantic, the titillating and the reprimanding.
This is the very unusual love story of Daphne and Dave, two people facing their tickle-demons together. It is primarily the journey of Daphne, a 21-year-old very ticklish woman. Daphne finds herself in a world where every important person in her life has a tickling fetish, including her boyfriend Dave.
She finds herself constantly surrounded by feathers and wiggling fingers, unable to escape the taunting sounds of her own laughter. She is also unable to escape her own mixed-up feelings about tickling.
As Daphne’s relationship with Dave grows, she must learn to face her fears and deeper feelings about tickling, for the sake of their relationship and herself.

Tickling Daphne H. follows a girl named Daphne who hates to be tickled. She loves her boyfriend, Dave, but his touches tickle her and he likes to try and tickle her a lot. Daphne is embarrassed and shy by her reactions to it. But after a fight with her stepmother, Carol, Daphne makes a realization about herself...that she may have an addiction to tickling. But she is too scared and confused to admit it. Daphne is on a journey to understand her addiction and how to share it with her boyfriend.
I did it again. I never thought the day would come I would read BDSM. Come to find out, I like it a lot. I never thought I would read a book about fetishes and well...here we are. But thank goodness this was about tickling. I know I wouldn't be able to handle more than that. This book was sexy and downright adorable all at once. I have heard of tickling fetishes and thought, of course, that it was a little weird. But this book really opened my eyes. This book took me by surprise.
I liked Daphne a lot in this book. Although, she had quite a bit of bratty moments. She acted a bit childish at times in this book. But you do understand after a while. We find that she suffers from more than trying to accept her fetish. There are a lot of fears and things that have taken place in her past that brought on her fetish. There are the issues she has with her stepmother Carol who is quite bossy and overbearing. She will do anything to make sure she gets what she wants. Mainly tickle Daphne for hours on end. Yeah, you read that right. I liked that Frances used this because it never occurred to me that you could use tickling in a way to humiliate and torture someone. After reading this, it made sense. But the scenes made you smile sometimes and other times, you do see the humiliation.
I loved this idea of coming to terms with a fetish. I understood why Daphne was scared and confused. I loved how her boyfriend Dave loves tickling. He is afraid to tell Daphne he is turned on by tickling. I liked that Carol (who also has a tickling fetish) was able to explain it all to her first. She may not want to face it, but it does help a bit. But we do find out what caused her fetish. We also find out what started Dave's as well. I loved the development of this. I didn't see that coming. It definitely made me understand this book more.
This book was sexy and I did enjoy it. The beginning took me a while to get into due to just trying to grasp the tickling thing. But after a while, it all came together. But there are scenes that do seem to last a little long. That really is my only complaint. Some scenes were a bit silly, but I still enjoyed the book a lot. But the erotic scenes was a new experience for me and I liked them a lot. This is definitely worth checking out.
