Ticklers vs Koosh Jewellery: What’s the difference?

ticklers vs Koosh Jewellery
Do you know the difference between ticklers and koosh jewellery? Let’s break it down.


A tickler (AKA French Tickler) is a cover made of silicone that fits over the bead on any barbell. The style we carry fits over a 6mm bead (standard for a tongue ring).
These soft, textured covers started as a means to enhance oral sex. Nowadays, some people like to wear them for the look, rather than their “practical” use. Unsurprisingly, the most common way to wear them is still in a tongue piercing. In additon to tongues, a tickler could be worn as earrings, navel and more though! Your imagination is the limit here.

Koosh Jewellery

Koosh beads are like ticklers. Beyond their use, the biggest difference is that a koosh’s silicone can’t be removed from the inner bead. Koosh beads work in any piercing, and were most common on earrings in the 2000s. It’s 2019 at the time of writing this and the 90s are in full swing. So who knows? Maybe koosh jewellery will make a comeback.
