How sensitive are you to touch?

Recommended Posts

This might require an explanation.

I was at the barber shop just a little bit ago, and after receiving my haircut the barber proceeded to perform a little therapeutic massage, for my back, shoulders and neck. Apparently that's a normal thing here in South Korea so... :v

Anyway, I was not cool with it. I was already a little tense, and this didn't help me loosen up at all. I'm very sensitive on my neck, shoulders and back, and pretty much everywhere else except my hands. I don't like being touched in general, so I guess I'm just sensitive all around.

That being said, in order to not be rude, I just sort of sat through it and endured it, squirming uncomfortably the whole time.

So, are you sensitive to being touched? And if so, where?

I'm not that sensitive, but I also don't like to be touched most of the time. So, I guess possibly somewhat sensitive.

I'm honestly not that sensitive to touch. Although I am a bit ticklish, if that counts.

I don't like to be touched unless I invite it specifically. If someone touches me without asking, I'll touch them right back with my fist.

So in short, this, except more...punchy?

I'm not really sensitive to touch unless I've got a sunburn. I'm rather ticklish too. But aside from that everything's pretty normal and it doesn't bother me (unless someone's being inappropriate of course).

If the touching comes out of nowhere (and without consent) I will literally fight back. I've had bad experiences of people being violent towards me.

Yes except...for some reason I didn't really picture SpongeBob in my head when I was thinking of dispensing violence. Maybe I should rethink the possibilities. :mlp_ooh:

For me it depends on WHO is touching me and WHAT part of my body is being touched...I'm also super ticklish, like everywhere :laugh:, so, that being said...yeah I am very sensitive to touch.

I’m super sensitive to touch... I’m very jumpy if someone touches me and I’m not expecting it :P. And I recently found out that I’m extremely ticklish xD

I crumble to pieces the moment you even poke me.

I'm very sensitive to touch. I don't even like massages, they are not comfortable to me, just overwhelming. I also have an aversion to being touched altogether which is a separate matter. Just don't touch me. Simple.

I'm fairly sensitive to it. Part of why I keep my nails long I'd so the underside of my fingertips don't touch anything. It feels really weird and uncomfortable.

 

Okay, very. People touching me bothers me, unless I feel comfortable with them doing so and it doesn't feel awkward.

I'm actually not sensitive at all. In fact, in marching band I'd bang my head as hard as I could into stuff to make people laugh (it worked every time, so I just kept doing it). I used to do so much dumb shit to get people to like me.

I have never given it much thought, but thinking of it now, I actually think I am very sensitive to touching by other people, if that makes sense. Like I am not fond of most people touching me in any capacity, this applies to most friends and family too. It just makes me feel rather uncomfortable and on edge. I am autistic so that could be a factor, that combined with my anxiety disorder. So I guess I am not sensitive in terms of any kind of pain, but rather it is a sensory thing I guess.

I'm very sensitive to touch, pretty much everywhere. This is likely on account for my sensory issues, but it has been a problem since I was little.

I get easily overwhelmed from even the slightest of pokes when I'm not expecting it. I'm not sure why, but I think it may remind me of traumatizing experiences in the past, and for that reason, I would feel like I'm in danger or something. Or it just may be my paranoia of everything, I don't really know. It's kinda hard to understand myself.

With regards to pain-tolerance, not very. I've been in a few physical fights at school (most of which were, like, several years ago), and despite not being really strong, I can take a fair amount of punches.

I would say I can be sensitive to touch. It really depends on where i’m being touched, by whom, and why. I received a massage at a spa recently and I took it well but some parts were rather painful. I’m sure some people could get the same massage and not find that same part painful. I deal with tattoos well but my skin becomes more sensitive as the hours go by.

I don't like massages or being touched near the neck, so I would say I'm pretty sensitive to touch.

I am ticklish on my sides too.

I don’t like any hand contact when having to hand people things (unless they’re my family).

Boi I am a sensitive soul (even though I don’t like being sensitive and develop DAT THICC skin) so me being touched is going to put me on a state of paranoia. I bet they touched me to extract information out of me (wears a tin foil hat and covers my whole body in tin foil).

That or they just like touching people. I find those kind of people suspicious and strange.

However, if you touch me by accident then I can let it slide.

If I touch someone its usually by accident since I don’t intend to touch people. I do apologize though in the end to the people I’ve accidentally touched.
