Could tickling on the soles of the feet be used as a form of torture?

Hi, I've heard that the Chinese Used to use tickling as a form of punishment and torture. Apparently they used it on their nobility as it left no permenant marks or damage. They would tie up their victims and tickle their feet for hours at a time to get wgat they wanted. What do you think? Would it work on you or someone you know? Please share.

Some people have different ticklish points and even if it's the feet they're ticklish with, it depends on the threshold too. I don't get ticklish on the soles of my feet at all. I wonder how this worked with them.

Well, most people feel tickled on their sole of the feet but I heard some doesn't feel tickled at all. About using this as a form of punishment? well, it is still cruel. a person can not realize his mistake if you punish him this way. For me, pubishment is a way to let the erring person realize the sin he has committed and for him to repent. Tickling is upsetting for those who felt tickled. Maybe others would choose to be whipped than tickled. Anyway, if that is legal in their country, that's their style. We just never go to China, we might commit mistake and they do this to us. lol.
