A French tickler is a special type of sex toy worn on the penis for penetrative intercourse. Its distinctive bumps or protrusions are designed to make sex more pleasurable for the receiver. The French tickler gets its name because of the sensations it produces for the receiver.
Some French ticklers are covered with soft bumps while others have protrusions concentrated around the tickler's tip. They are typically made of jelly, rubber, latex, or another soft material.
This sex toy should not be confused with a man’s goatee which is also sometimes referred to as a French tickler when he performs cunnilingus on a vulva-owning partner.
